The pleated skort as worn by Emma Raducanu

Looks really cool - I want one :-)

Realistically, its got me thinking about splurging on one of the kilts that has this sort of design - a contrasting color within the pleats.

Re: Fred pays a visit

We have that French rogue, Henri, tapping at our window right now. I’m off to see if I have any hatches to batten down :-)

Re: Active topics thread summary

Dennis - IT contractors are about in the US but are not so common as in the UK. One reason is that permie pay can be very generous in tech-hub cities and the benefits (particularly with regards to decent health insurance, but also the issuing of stock / RSU's) mean that working for yourself just isn...

Re: Zanfona - Medieval Music

A guy called Donald Heller is well known for busking with his Hurdy Gurdy in Boston . I've spoken to him a few times - quite the character. The first time that I spoke to him I told him that a (now ex) colleague back in the UK played the same instrument. He asked me to name him and, of course, he kn...

Re: Rethinking Lingerie....

Hesitated for a long time before posting on this one, but here goes..... It's great to get the direction from the mods earlier in this post about the "fetish" angle - I plan to keep well clear of that :-) Many women, my wife included, have "day to day" underwear and "special" underwear, the latter p...

Re: Active topics thread summary

Yes, working now - you superstar :-) The system I work on generates dynamic SQL and in debug mode you can see what it has created, but not why. I'm normally in this situation when groups, sorts or filters are not working as intended. Sometimes you can work your way through the selects, joins, group ...

Re: Active topics thread summary

Hi Carl - please don't waste your valuable time on looking at something that is a very, very minor detail. I only through the question out there out of curiosity. You do a great job of maintaining this site and I'm sure there are many other things you would rather be spending your time on :-)

Re: Active topics thread summary

Interesting.... I wonder what drives the algorithm? I don't think it is the individual thread as the Medal one I posted has many views and several responses but still does not show, yet this post appeared immediately? Maybe it is driven by the popularity of the category rather than that of the indiv...

Re: If SkirtCafe were to give out medals......

I wonder if Mark Bryan has the industry connections to get access to these guys (Singh and Sivan) and to model some of their kit?

Re: If SkirtCafe were to give out medals......

It's probably a thousand dollar outfit... but man, that is DAPPER. Though I'm betting Carl likely has the components in his closet to assemble something like that.... My guess is that this kit is going to be multiple thousands of $$$. The designer talks about making use of "rare and deadstock fabri...

Hi Carl

It appears that the Active Topics quick-link does not include posts from the Couture category. Is this by design, or an oversight?

If SkirtCafe were to give out medals......

I'm sure these guys would stand a chance of gold. I came across these two on Instagram, but they also have a presence on the wider www, so fear not you Social Meeedja refuseniks. Terry Sing NYC I think this is the guy who owns the fashion company and is the main model on the web page. Jack Sivan is ...

Re: Boys skirting the issue

The link only goes to an article about two boys who wear dresses - nothing about a supplier who makes dresses for boys. Hi Dennis. Primary.com is the clothing manufacturer. The earlier link is to their blog, but if you go to the base url you will see all of the items they have for sale. From their ...

It's was easy to add a supportive comment. I did. Let's see some more. Yes, how very negative of me! I don't do Twitter, but happy to add positive comment here. First of all, I think he looks great. I'm not personally a fan of round neck garments (for me at least, they look fine on others though - ...
