Re: Pushing my limits

Yes, the UK is a free country but just because you CAN wear a skirt to work doesn't mean it is without consequences. The first thing is that people have difficulty separating men in skirts from transsexuals. I would have an additional difficulty here as I also cross-dress - I spend most of my time d...

Re: The World Just Got a Little More Drab

I have missed them for some time. They closed their shop in Aberdeen and then the one in Edinburgh. As I do not buy over the internet that was the end. I have a special affection for LTS because it was in a branch in London that I first tried on women's clothes in a shop (I was dresses in male cloth...

Re: Pyjama Skirt?

The problem with nightshirts is that they are to short and they have splits. I wear ankle length nightdresses for comfort - would not dream of wearing a shortie or a baby doll.

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

I have only worn trousers for a total of about 8 hours in the last two months. I only go out for food. I have not gone out in a skirt or dress because in Scotland you are not allowed to go far from home and if you do you are likely to be stopped by the Police and could even be fined. With a bot of l...

Re: First steps in tights

For high quality tights at good prices it is hard to beat TK Maxx. As long as you only want black. One day when shops are open again ....

Re: Women's March Sunday -- What should a man wear?

I really don't think the contrast between men's clothing rights and the inequality experienced by women are on a par. Despite the advances made by feminism women are still much more poorly paid and treated in a patronising manner )or worse) by some men. Puts clothing into perspective. I would be war...

Re: One recurring theme...

It is not my friends and colleagues I worry about. They would be fine. The thing is I do other stuff with my life that I want to be remembered for - I don't want that diluted by the "guy in the skirt" reputation. I wear skirts in public but only where I am unlikely to be recognised. I am also a cros...

Haven't opened the link. Can I just make a plea. It is NOT Auld Lang Zyne. It is hard s. Syne.

You must be mad

I was in a Highland town yesterday in very cold weather. I went into one of my favourite boutiques and though the usual owner was not there she was happy for me to try on dresses. I bought a dress and a skirt, then she noticed that I was no longer wearing the trousers I had on when I came in, but a ...

Re: skirted member of Parlement in Portugal

The Liberal Democrats are not the third party. They are the fourth, and have been since the previous election. When the Scots vote for parties that are clear about wanting a referendum on independence, then win rather more decisively than the Bounder Boris, and he says no, we no longer live in a dem...

Re: skirted member of Parlement in Portugal

Eddie Izzard is about to enter politics. He has said he would attend Parliament in a skirt - he would wear the type of clothes women MPs were wearing. Unfortunately I don't think he is standing in this election.

Re: Wet weather advantage

I think the advantage is in wearing a shorter skirt in wet weather. Your tights get wet and possibly muddy but they are easy to wash compared with trousers or a skirt.

Re: Feeling Pretty

I do full crossdressing as well as wearing skirts as a man. I don't identify as a woman when I am in full fig and I aspire to elegance rather than being pretty. The husband of a female friend described me to her (out of my hearing) as pretty which I think was a compliment - I think he had been expec...

Re: Why we wear skirts and how does it feel?

Obviously the comfort. I like to look good too, and I am sure I look better in a skirt than in trousers. I have great legs which I keep hair free and unless it is very hot I wear tights. I also wear heels to accentuate the legs. It is great to go out on a breezy summer day with bare legs and a billo...
