Re: Women don’t fit in anymore.

How do you construe this as "liberal"?

Re: Boy 8 told long hair has to go

For an interesting case-study of this, look for pictures of Naomi Watts and her younger son. That family's problem is that, being celebrities, they are pestered by paparazzi everywhere they go. That means you can easily find many photos. He is not labelled trans-anything or gender-anything, but his ...

Re: Keeping the manhood from poking out

I never worry about this. First, I don't have the sort of heavy-duty machinery down there that's going to impress anybody, let alone scare them. Second, my usual choice of skirt fabric is a camouflage in more ways than one. Third, I see more anatomically explicit display in what women are wearing no...

Re: Skirts worn with a corset

Check out Dark Garden Corsetry in San Francisco. They have plenty of male customers. All their corsets are bespoke and of high quality. Also look in Google Images for "Dirndl". That's the dress typically worn by waitresses in German beer halls. They have a cinched-up waist with front lacing, and a f...

Re: Can you identify this skirt?

I can't find that original image, but here's a Skirtcraft that's a very close match. https://www.google.com/url?sa=i&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.pinterest.co.uk%2Fpin%2F410390584771927723%2F&psig=AOvVaw19LnrrHPlH8GLYjCW3dLQI&ust=1590596990426000&source=images&cd=vfe&ved=0CAMQjB1qFwoTCPjM59b50ekCFQAAAAAdAA...

Can you identify this skirt?

Found on Pinterest.
No other information given. Skirtcraft possibly?

Re: Interesting article about the origin of Mary Jane shoes

There used to be a forum, looking very much like Skirtcafe, devoted to "Mary Janes" and other unisex footwear such as saddle shoes and English school sandals. I do hope that member is still active. Strap shoes like these have been associated with men and boys for centuries, including Columbus, Georg...

Re: Interesting article about the origin of Mary Jane shoes

@beachlion, I had a pair of those. Purchased by mail order from Zwartjes Schoenhandel (spelling?) in Amsterdam in 1974. Size 45. They cost about $15.00 U.S. They were dark brown, plain non-shiny leather, plain stitching. I saw some people wearing them where I was living at the time (Berkeley, Califo...

Re: Meggings

Like #brennk, I dislike the word "meggings." I own a drawer full of leggings (and a few tights). They are certainly cheap enough, if you go to the right stores. Some of mine are in basic black, some are in colorful patterns. One of my favorites is a camouflage legging from Rothco which I found at a ...

Re: Favourite shoes

I used to wear Capezio flats and jazz oxfords. This was late 1970s to early 1980s. I don't think these are being made anymore, which is unfortunate. When you find them, they are listed as "vintage." I had both the unadorned ballet flat, and one that they called "U shell buckle." It had an instep str...

Re: Tumblr blog

Here are two more. https://maleskirts.tumblr.com/archive https://loinclothsmaleskirts.tumblr.com/archive The trouble with Tumblr is that there is almost no way to trace a photo back to its original source. If you see a skirt or a dress that you might like to try on, it would be nice to find out who ...

Re: Camo skirt

Cabela's bayou skirt, my favorite. I own two of them. https://www.cabelas.com/product/Cabelas-Womens-Bayou-Skirt/1322707.uts?WT.tsrc=SOC&WT.mc_id=PIN_MRCH_HNT_GN But good luck finding it, since it is marked as "sold out" on the Cabela's web site. There was a long thread about camouflage skirts that ...

Re: hybrid style

The Rakuten is something I would wear. But not pay $200. How does it happen that they only exist in size 7? The Doc 8065 is on my all-time dream list (along with Clark's Joyance sandals the way they were made 60 years ago). So far, Doc has never made 8065 in my size, and I'm not sure why. I already ...
