Re: Clothes shops

Do they know they can choose? Do they know that - yeah - it's "safe" out there? That if they started wearing that cool bright orange shirt* no one would make fun of them? Or if there was ridicule, it would be short lived, and hidden in some of that ridicule was a desire to be as bold? Dep...

Ok there can be constraints, but all other things being equal,, they can but choose not to. Do they know they can choose? Do they know that - yeah - it's "safe" out there? That if they started wearing that cool bright orange shirt* no one would make fun of them? Or if there was ridicule, ...

Re: Venom Cargo Skirt

Yeah - it looks to me like the skirt is too skimpy (particularly at the front). I think if they put more material horizontally into the wrap then it would maybe work better. For sure - I have a pair of their pants, and construction-wise and fabric they are great - so I really wanted their skirt to ...

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

My "yearly" post - again attended the Ann Arbor Michigan art fair. Folks can see my two recent outfits in my outfit thread, but basically first day walked the entire fair with a friend, second day by myself walked through the fair to meet a colleague for a lunch thing. Got one "I love...

Re: Venom Cargo Skirt

I purchased a skirt similar to what you describe (https://www.wonderyoutdoors.com/products/ephedra-trail-skort-sage?variant=41624266670163) - and returned it. Two reasons: 1) with the kind of tops I wear, it just didn't look right (I think it needs a crop or athletic-style shirt, something on the ti...

Re: skirts for men

I personally think that there should be a men’s skirt category with some distinct differences in the skirt styles. Most women’s skirts tend to be narrow, and therefore tricky to sin in, unless you go for a circle skirt or a ladies’ wrap. Never quite understood that - like - are they only uncomforta...

Venom Cargo Skirt

Got an email pushing a "sale!" and had to click - this brand often has men's skirts so I was curious (also have a few printed skirts from them that I like). Ran across this option, and figured it might gin up some discussion since controversial stuff increases engagement :D https://dangerf...

Re: Leggings

I don't see anything wrong with leggings or discussing leggings on this forum in the "Freestyle Fashions" section - and I think having the discussion of *what* to call clothes useful. I think everyone has personal opinions on leggings-as-pants and whether it signifies a deep failure in soc...

Re: Skirts in foreign lands

I will be in boring pants I think for most purposes trousers are the practical option and I never find them "boring". Skirts are nice for a change, especially if I am doing something sedate, like reading or gentle walking. In many instances pants are practical - but for a tourist trip I c...

Skirts in foreign lands

I'm going to be doing a bit of traveling in Italy this year, and while I will be in boring pants (as it is with family) I got to thinking - there hasn't been a big discussion of where MIS are accepted. Honestly, based on the variety of countries folks post from, and stuff I see on Reddit, the answer...

Re: GR10K ARC SKIRT

What are the zips each side for? They appear to go all the way up so you would have a front and back only connected at the waist. You can get a similarly look with a cargo skirt. The zips reveal a mesh side panel - though I don't know if it's ventilated or just a side gusset: https://gr10k.com/prod...

This skirt was mentioned in a recent news article, tracked it down. Bit pricey.
