Re: Hola!: Bad Bunny rocks pink hair, a skirt, and face pearls on the cover of Allure

We just have to get him to do a collab with Jaden Smith and Harry Styles and job done! All the young guys will want to mimic their style, skirts will be flying off the shelves :mrgreen:

Re: Another double standard

It's to do with ingrained gender roles... in their eyes, why would any man want to dress as a woman? Hence any skirted outfit that catwalk designers make for men, are teamed with pants or trousers to reassure people it's a "masculine" look :roll: Hopefully Lewis Hamilton will realise his Burberry ou...

Re: Skirts on the F1 Grid?

Just had a thought about the comments on manual boxes dying out, of course they will, so will all forms of automatic. In the Yuk, sorry UK this is going to happen in 2030, when the sale of infernal combustionating engines comes into force. If the politicians(spit!) don't change their minds, there w...

Re: Keeping a flat front

Pencil styles in heavy material (ie denims) contribute to a flat front, any styles where the skirt has more tautness between the upper thighs (even bias cut and more flowing styles may allow for this), but as a guy in a skirt, there's not such a need for a flat front in any style :oops: :P

Re: Lifestyle Asia: Who says dresses are just for women?

Yawn. After several decades of taking the bait promising that "this is the next big trend for men", I have learnt that what rich celebrities do almost never translates into what I can find at the local department store or see on the street in my hometown. When Wal-Mart or TJ Maxx offers skirts and ...

Re: Presenting "as a woman"

It's not the path the majority of us wish to go down... some may have transitioned, but the aim of things here is fashion freedom for men, not becoming one of the opposite sex to justify the clothing choice . I am sure moderators would echo the same sentiments :wink:

I bought an identical one from Marks and Spencer. It is serviceable, versatile - can be used for smart wear or walking the dog. ...

Re: Jeans skirt

Here's my frayed denim pencil skirt. The vent is great for movement, it's a snug fit but not too restrictive. Thick tights help with modesty, but it's long enough too. 8)

Re: Polo inside or outside ?

Tucked in looks great with formal shirts and skirts, some complained about my belly when I demonstrated the look with formal pencils for the office, but I think NZF is spot on with his recommendations! :wink: Here's my green pencil skirt in tweed (sadly shrunk in wash), but shirt tucked in and worn ...

Re: Keeping a flat front

Depends on the type of skirt and I find the type of underwear / hosiery also helps.

Re: Skirt Etiquette

I have been at both ends of the skirt etiquette stick. Many years ago when I worked for John Lewis I was showing a female customer how upholstery fabrics juxtaposes with different floor coverings. That is a low level task and she squatted right opposite me. She was not terribly mindful of her skirt...

Re: Another Skirted Score

As long as you let HR know, there's rarely an issue at work. Knee length skirts in dark colours has not been an issue, so long as you keep working just as well as before, and don't make it a distraction. Pencil skirts and tights / stockings are fine, with reasonable shoes, like the wardrobe Alistai...
