Re: Re - Interesting Article regarding Men and Skirts

http://testtube.com/stuffmomnevertoldyou/men-who-wear-skirts/ Interesting that your link is titled "stuff Mom never told you". I think that's the real key. Mother's really do have the power to change all this. If more mothers put skirts and dresses on their little boys, in 1 generation attitudes ab...

Re: No Trousers at the Polynesian Cultural Center

Yes, The Polynesian Culteral Center is an amazing (and informative) place to visit. Unfortunately I went there long before I had discovered the joys of wearing skirts and dresses, so I didn't make the connection at the time. But I do remember all the native peoples looking very pretty anbd handsome ...

Re: How exactly is this NOT a dress!

If it also doubles up as a dress I can use for slobbing around the house, which will help me to get Carole more used to that idea, then that would be a bonus. This is a big bonus of a shirt/dress like this. I often "slob around the house" in just a long t-shirt and underwear. Last year I got a very...

Re: How exactly is this NOT a dress!

To me the answer (is this a dress or not) is obvious. If its worn as a stand-alone garment, not over other outerwear, then its a dress; if its worn over shorts or pants, then its a shirt. The model in the ad appeared to have pants on underneath, so they obviously aren't selling as a dress. Now I app...

Re: Skirt length - my experience

Well, it looks like our length preferences are all over the map; just as I suspect they would be if a large group of women were asked. I adjust my length to the weather; in summer I always wear a very short mini, but in winter you need something longer, and pantyhose underneath if its very cold. In ...

Re: Baffling holiday hotel dress code

Yep, the common thread throughout is inconsistency. I have been to several Caribbean resorts that say "no shorts" at dinner. They all have applied it equally to men and women, so I had no complaint. Obviously the answer is to wear a short dress or skirt, as the places are usually no air conditioned ...

Re: Dress Code Problems

Wow, I completely forgot I never followed up on this. 1. The first organization eventually responded, and said there had been several complaints about my attire and they were only responding to the complaints, and they sort-of apologized, but said when there was more than one complaint they were obl...

Re: A personal issue with tights.

My personal preference is no tights or pantyhose. I like the feel on bare legs much better, and I don't much like the looks of tights either. I always prefer seeing women without tights or hose, so this is the same. Now in the winter I have discovered if you wear a long (ankle-length) skirt then you...

[OK, what happened to the "reply with quote" function on this board?? Either it has disappeared, or I am just plain blind, because I can't find it!]

Anyway, Sarongman, I agree with you completely. I didn't mean to imply that this disagreement was in any way a problem.

Re: What do you wear on your legs with skirts

Well, its obvious there will never be any general agreement on this topic. I will confess to wearing pantyhose in the winter to keep warm, and I even wear them under pants if I am going to be outside for an extended period of time (@ football games). Its great because, with socks over the hose, no o...

Re: The Theatre

Davy, You didn't day where you are, or where this theatre is or what the name of the play/performance was, so we're still in the dark. I expect all the men wore short tunics, which in Northern climes were combined with leggings/tights of some sort. This differentiated them from the religious lot wh...

The Theatre

I was at a play a few weeks ago, set in the 13'th century. Every character in the play wore a dress! It was nearly the end of the 1st act before I had noticed, but after that I took note. I certainly expected a few of the minor characters, maybe servants, pages or slaves to be in pants, but, no, not...

Re: First Mini

Hey, Davy, Where do you go to find " 20% of the guys there were in skirts or dresses" ? Perhaps there were only 4 other people present? No, there were many more than 4 other men there. This was a party where, for some long drawn out reason that I didn't understand completely, all the men were "aske...

Re: What do you wear on your legs with skirts

Just one point, Davy - having shaved legs in no way makes you look like a woman. Try suggesting that to several sportsmen and you may regret it! Ditto hosiery. It's how you wear it, not the garment itself. I agree that it is how you wear it and not the garment. But it is true that our culture does ...
