Re: WSJ Article on Ballet Flats in men's fashion

Nice looking Groundies flats. I would wear these, but the sizes only go up to 43. I need 46. And the only color is black. https://www.pinterest.com/pin/424886546103433111/?rcpt=759490062068082417&utm_campaign=rdpins&e_t=614e521993e34b5384cfb8d4313005af&utm_source=31&utm_medium=2004&utm_content=42488...

Re: Nap Dresses for Men

A relevant article on nap dresses.

Unfortunately they refer only to "women's" nap dresses and "men's"
nightwear. But they clearly draw up a connection and an affinity
in how they are being used by stay-at-home people.

Re: Nap Dresses for Men

I had never heard of nap dresses so I had to check Instagram and Google Images to see examples. Nothing much different from "house dresses" in that they are loose and comfortable and cover everything. They would be street legal. I myself have worn things that would be barely street legal to step out...

Re: Out and About -- In the World at Large

That's what leggings are for! Slightly less hassle than tights, which you have to fit over your feet. Leggings stay up better than tights. Get the high-waisted variety. Black and other solid colors, also a million different patterns and colors. Wear them under trousers or shorts or skirts, or just o...

Re: Camouflage skirt

I'm still looking at camouflage skirts. https://mainstreetexchangeapparel.com/products/aspen-camo-knee-length-skirt?variant=31319247716436 This one from Main Street Exchange has possibilities. Maybe about 2 inches longer than I would like. I would remove the tie belt and wear it with a wide leather ...

Re: MORAL, US politics this week

Two lessons learned from the Trump disaster.
(1) It takes only one rotten apple to wreck 244 years of democracy.
(2) Beware of any brainwashed cult that masquerades as a major political party.

Re: Can man look good in dress?

I have not seriously considered wearing a dress, but if I did
it might be one of these utilitarian blue denim types.

Re: The end of August

Finally some cool weather in southern Oregon, where unfortunately wildfires have wiped out some of my friends' homes and livelihood. I visited the farmers' and growers' market in Medford and got compliments on my Aztec patterned leggings (from Walmart) and my blue Duckfeet Himmerlands. As for the la...

Re: what styles do you guys recommend?

Thanks to Reddit for this information.

Apparently USPS hasn't ruled against skirts. Just shorts. And skorts are OK.

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 ...
