Re: Boys skirting the issue

Side note, Marks and Spencer have skirts in the boy category of their uniform offer, "Naturally", all the models appear to be girls. Steve. I must have missed the skirts in the boys section. But I did notice that all the shoes are labelled “Kids”. Mind you, all but the Mary Janes, T-bar and ballet ...

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

So I went out as before, skirt under kilt [0] and also a cheap plastic poncho to keep off the rain. I collected my bags and loaded the car. Once I was behind the wheel, off came the kilt and I set out to complete the deliveries. One "customer" asked where the kilt was. Since he couldn't see the skir...

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

This morning I set out on my Saturday morning shopping expedition to Tesco with a bottle green corduroy skirt under my kilt. the latter came off in the car, and I enjoyed the trip skirted. Arriving back on the drive outside the house, I suddenly realised I was still skirted. I could have gone back i...

Re: Hello everyone

Having travelled the A1 many times in both directions between various homes in Northumberland and Scotland to visit family strung out between the Thames corridor and the Severn Bridge, I can confidently tell you that "The North" still appears on signs at least as far south as Grantham. In fact, it m...

Re: Boys skirting the issue

Out of curiosity, I checked out the Preston Lodge High School uniform code: Skirts, trouser or shorts (no mention of gender) There is also a Q&A section, which includes the statement that ties should be done up "at or just below the top button". The dress code is maintained by "encouragement and con...

Re: GQ - “It’s time to stop skirting the issue”

Unfortunately, Teo does not have the courage of his convictions. "If you do, then I will" just perpetuates the very prejudice he's complaining about. He needs to "man up" and show is a picture of him in a skirt; then we might see some changes.

Re: Boys skirting the issue

All of the above notwithstanding, it is encouraging to see our local Primary School (rebranded last year following a merger of the separate infant and primary schools) makes no mention of gender on the uniform list: School uniform should be labelled with your child’s name and consists of: Colour Gar...

Welcome and congratulations on achieving a level of wifely acceptance that many of us long for :shock: . Hopefully you'll get to enjoy your new-found freedom for many years to come.

Re: Boys skirting the issue

You can debate whether the store did the right thing or not, but it doesn't matter: parents are the driving force no matter how the shop is laid out And the Grandparents, Uncles, Aunts plus anyone else who will exert any influence over the actual parents' decisions. The kids' own preferences could ...

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

Still no skirts as such - too much going on to face the wifely opposition, and sneaky changing in the car before and after going shopping has lost its appeal! However, we took some holiday (after 10 days of self-isolation :( ) visiting family. I wore my plain black kilt for the journey down and on s...

Re: Naomi Watts' boy

Many years ago I worked in the design section of an engineering company. I had a pink M&S cotton jumper which I wore with either a lemon or a pink and grey striped shirt and grey leather tie. Despite having an engineer nicknamed “Fairy Nuff”[1] (it was in the 80’s) there were never any comments abou...
