Skirts, the wearing of.

I wear skirts or dresses every day. I'll let you know when something happens and this week it did, in a very strange way. It involves someone who came to me workwise, a mum with 2 sons. Part of my remit is children, and it flows from there. She refers to one of them as "her little princess" because ...

Re: Fashion brand ClHu — Clothes for Humans

There's no wrong way to wear it.
Wanna place a bet on that?
Pure hype, so bad it was actually good.

Re: Simons's (Canadian) men's skirts

Coder, They are spot on with the description "kilt like skirt". The outward look is kiltish but it isn't a wrapover, "concealed zip closure"= skirt. Ye Gods, there are enough rabid Scots Canadians who'd have torched the place had they tried to leave it at just kilt. It would be interesting to know i...

Re: The women in your life

I do most of the housekeeping at home too, is it appreciated or welcomed?
Hell No!
It rankles Mrs K because she would simply be unable to do it for herself and resents the fact that I can but more importantly do.

Re: Skirt related poetry

A long time ago and in a galaxy far away, I wrote these bits. I had thought that I had lost them forever, but thanks to modern technology, here they are anew. In the cafe today I believe that SkirtyScot, Big and Bashful and Skirting Today are the only ones to have seen the originals. These words ser...

Re: A plea for skirts as a degendering measure

So, I don't think there will be a revolution where one day all guys think it's ok to wear a skirt. But that the generation growing up now will keep expanding and one day it will be normal and we won't even have noticed it happening. A Tale of Teen Romance. Their eyes meet across the crowded room, t...

Re: A plea for skirts as a degendering measure

Do you know why? I’m really curious. It was first coined in 1722, recorded anyway and used for restricting the movement of lunatics and criminals. Also, much beloved of escapologists as a prop in their acts. Think of "strait" as being in dire straits meaning with nowhere to turn and not the 80s roc...

Re: New York Times: Who Wears the Skirts in the Family?

I think this is an important quote for men thinking about wearing skirts or dresses: “I used to be inhibited about what I wore,” Mr. Singh said. “I kept my head down because I felt people were staring. Then I realized I don’t know what’s in people’s minds, and I started to dress for myself. A quest...

Re: Evolution of a Scots sounding name

Hi Tom, In a similar vein, I had a Glaswegian friend of the surname MacDonald, a very common one. His ancestral name was O'Donnell and the prejudice fearsome. The MacDonald was simply adopted without any legal recourse and still in use today. What is more that I believe there are direct descendants ...

Re: A plea for skirts as a degendering measure

Any store brave enough to size some up as unisex, put them on the men's rails and market/advertise them as wearable by both her and him would be taking a risk - but could potentially start a trend and, in any case, the free publicity from that would pay dividends. Hi Stu, It didn't work like that f...

This notion of more men wearing skirts as a bad thing is absolutely perplexing to me
Scott.
More men in skirts is no bad thing!
However, any number of men straitjacketed into a single design of any garment is!
I do hope that alleviates your perplexity.

Re: A plea for skirts as a degendering measure

We would be left with a somewhat larger prison cell (or coffin). Not much of an improvement to where we are now! The profusion of verbiage that this thread has produced does not change things one iota. I am sorry guys, but I will wear anything that fits my fancy. I agree but make no apologies to an...

This is the sett and I am informed that the clan is affiliated to those other legendary highlanders, the MacSupials.
Perhaps Denimini might be able to enlighten us.

No doubt it was named to appeal to romantic Jacobites. .....and to get them to part with their hard-earned cash! King Charles III is free to wear whatever tartan that Camilla will allow and same goes for all the lesser mortals to do likewise. I doubt if there will be a surge in demand because our C...

Wow, you did shop at Specsavers!
On the other hand, best ignored and no, not nice at all.

Be very interesting to know if she followed through on that statement and his reaction too.
