Re: Platform shoes - unisex

I also have an old pair of crocs which I live in at home. I can’t say I wouldn’t go out in them, because I have on occasions just left the house and not bothered to check on what was on my feet. One question. In the advert I posted recently, the guy was in crocs with socks…. This to me is similar t...

Re: skirts for men

Re: US Senate dress code

At funerals people are expected to wear black. I have a black dress for such an occasion. John Well that is one custom around here that seems to be changing. Generally muted tones but rarely all black attire. I don't imagine garish colours would be appropriate unless the deceased had requested such...

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

I too spent the first week of May in Dundee and Edinburgh - saw no other skirted (or kilted) males in Dundee, and only one in Edinburgh who wasn't in costume playing the bagpipes on the street. This is why it was more of a challenge for me to dress in a skirt as hardly any man is dressed in a skirt...

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

I thought with Dundee being a Scottish city I’d see more guys in kilts but I’ve only seen them dressed in kilts casually a few time. I have seen a few guys in skirts and fishnets tights but that seems to be around the university as it has a big LGBTQ following. A week in Scotland around Edinburgh a...

Re: Intimate Medical Issues

Some years ago I had a series of urinary tract infections, each one being treated with longer courses of increasingly strong antibiotics. The final one progressed into one of my testicles which swelled up to the size of a tennis-ball - extremely painful, and resistant to most analgesics. There was e...

Re: Don't worry, most people know we're not trans

For those members of this community who are interested in the ways that clothes can be adapted/designed across the male-female spectrum, I have found a set of four articles that explore the subject from an explicit "non-gendering" perspective: https://www.seamwork.com/articles/degendering-...

Not a pay wall, I think, but a geo-wall -- I can read it OK where I am. That may be, I just know that the page was obliterated by a demand for a paid "subscription" and I couldn't read it without resorting to browser-trickery. This must be the Greg James who presents what sounds like a hi...

Re: Sightings "in the wild"

At about 1430hrs on 14th February, while crossing the Howard Street car park in Gt Yarmouth, I noticed at the back of the old people's centre (at number 7, Regent Street) two people, presumably staff, at their back door, having a cigarette. The woman was totally unremarkable (black jeans, black hood...

Re: Men's? Unisex? Or Women's?

Skirts marketed as "unisex" seems to be a category that can just barely exist. I believe that Skirtcraft gained traction because of crowd funding. The original Macabi was designed for women who wanted to go fishing. Fishing is something that appeals to men, which resulted in men inquiring...

Re: Weather in your location ?

I went for a walk in Yarmouth (east coast of Norfolk, England) this afternoon with my wife and one daughter. The north winds over the last few days have caused the sea to "pile up" towards the southern end of the North Sea between the UK and the Netherlands/Belgium, and with today's high t...

Non-posting/inactive members?

In an idle moment recently, I clicked on the "members" link at the bottom of the forum index page, and then did a sort by the numbers of posts. In all, there are just under 21 pages of members (N=1527). While there are some prolific posters in the first few pages, only two and a half pages...
