Re: New York Times article

Any garments aimed at men will only have a chance of acceptance and challenging the "trouser tyranny" if they are: Simple Sensible Masculine True perhaps for garments aimed at men who are: Conservative Economic rationalists Self conscious Otherwise the garments could be: Cheerful Fun Gender neutral...

Re: New York Times article

Dammit, I truly wish the mass media could decouple style choices from gender and sexuality. It's getting very, very tedious -- and destructive to the gender-normative male who might want to free himself from trouser tyranny. Enough! AMEN. While I thought the article was somewhat helpful, there was ...

Re: woke

It's actually SNL taking the piss out of the wokesters with a fake "Levi's" ad. I thought SNL used to be ultra woke, is the tide turning? I doubt it. I feel like the pc police of yesteryear are the woke police of today - with the exception that people are actually losing their jobs over stuff (not ...

Re: Another Skirted Score

Not sure if one of the members here wrote this, but some good points: The problem is that Shane needs to now consider how he and the others will deal with working at companies where the men are required to wear exactly the same- suit shirt tie, while the women have no dress code at all. To those who...

Re: Earthbound Trading Unisex Dress

With the pants it looks like a long tank too, that’s all. Without the pants… might be too short for most guys? It feels like it would need to be longer for your average male who is unaccustomed to wearing a skirt or dress and the hazards a shorter length present. Also, at least for me I’d feel vulne...

Re: Pockets differences

Military skirt? looks a bit restricting for that purpose? how long is it? I can't really tell from the photo of it on a stand like that. Once I figure out a top I’m happy with I’ll post - it’s probably about 24” long - headed towards midi territory for me. And there’s enough pleat volume to not be ...

Re: Interesting perspective

I use Little Snitch on my macs. It isn’t an ad-blocker per-se, rather a firewall of sorts. I set it to deny all and ask… then evaluate domains one by one - it’s quite eye opening (yeah, even for a web software developer). Usually they are named in a way the intent is obvious.

Re: Pockets differences

I’ll have to take photos, but when I bought the skirt the model had it as a front center button style… when I was looking it over I realized - like the photo - the buttons are supposed to fasten on the left. I also noticed a bit of extra fabric along the line of buttons - it turns out one of the but...

Re: Pockets differences

Here's an interesting variation on pockets... Years ago I bought a Swedish military skirt - button up - essentially looks like this: https://www.picclickimg.com/d/l400/pict/202647085771_/VTG-Womens-WWII-Swedish-A-Line-Wrap-Military-Skirt.jpg It ended up being too long for me at the time so went into...

I'll also say - I don't think it matters what women wear, they will always look better/put together than men,
Is that a fact...?

Re: Mens Suiting Is Drab

Women do the jacket with matching skirt and pants thing, and pull it off, but they get away with a lot more in terms of proportions. This is likely due to the constant flux of women's wear and constantly changing hemlines. A skirt that lands a little higher or lower (or even pants that show a littl...

Re: Sightings "in the wild"

I know this might not count - and couldn’t find a movie thread…

“The Hunter” with William Defoe - about 28 minutes in he’s at a gas station and I’m nearly positive a guy he talks with is wearing a black kilt. They don’t shoot below the belt, but the garment looks pleated and unbifuricated.

Re: East coast fuel shortage

At least in the US EV charging stations can be found - both at businesses (free and paid), and Tesla has set up charging stations around the country. These are usually urban areas. I really like the idea of electric vehicles - from a technology perspective - but they aren't yet practical for long-di...
