Re: gender-inclusive skirt

To Coder, This review on their site may help answer your question. Also, just a suggestion- perhaps order 2 sizes and then return the one that doesn't work. "Was disappointed with this skirt. My waist size is a 28 and I followed the size chart that Nordstrom gave, when I tried on the skirt it was t...

Re: gender-inclusive skirt

Is their size chart right? I have a 28" waist, and getting an XXS seems like a disaster in the making.

This is particularly crazy - that this person thought he could pass off a fake arm as real skin. And this person is in healthcare.

It suggests "Wear it under slim or skinny fit trousers with boots...." Surely they mean over trousers as wearing under trousers would be pointless.

But whereas a welcome trend, alas not local to me.
LOL, good catch.

Re: BusinessWorld: Will the perfect men’s dress ever exist — and would men wear it?

Suggestion to those who would market a teeshirt dress for men.... Avoid the word "dress". Market the garment as a "tee", as though the name has been casually contracted. I wrote a whole thread about what we call garments on here a couple of weeks ago - and everybody disagreed with me: https://www.s...

Re: BusinessWorld: Will the perfect men’s dress ever exist — and would men wear it?

Suggestion to those who would market a teeshirt dress for men.... Avoid the word "dress". Market the garment as a "tee", as though the name has been casually contracted. Totally. I think a smart/fun marketing campaign could avoid the word dress altogether, call it a long tee or something like that,...

Re: The kids today

I’ve spent some time in that sub, and I see it as the opposite of inspiring. Reading the posts, trying to understand what’s going through some of those poster’s minds, I just see confusion. Some of them know who they are - but a lot, if not most, are reaching out for an answer that just isn’t there....

Re: We Stand with Our Boys in Skirts

One matter that I always thought would go over well here on skritcafe that despite anime names such as "femboy", "trap" [0], etc, you'll notice that these characters are still considered boys for the most part. This was the source of my comment on Stu's thread, to which I meant no disrespect, nor w...

Re: What's in a Name

I'm not sure if the kilt thing is a net positive or negative for normalizing men in skirts, probably a positive, but sometimes I wonder. I wonder if it is off-putting for progressives (kilt = toxic masculinity), and conservatives would just roll their eyes and say "admit it, you're wearing a skirt,...

Re: The Sydney Morning Herald: Is the Australian men’s market ready for skirts yet?

Also the dresses/skirts worn are nothing like what would appear upon the streets for everyday wear. While it can't do any real harm, whether any of this will impinge upon the consciousness of the average person as candidates for wearing in the street is debatable but other things might. Sorry, but ...

Re: What's in a Name

And it's why the old Action Man toys were never referred to as "dolls" when that is exactly what they are. I can attest to this! As a child I told another kid, "GI Joes are just dolls". If memory serves me correctly, I received a light punch to the gut. Of course, these were the 6" figures, not the...

Re: Honorifics

But how many people would question the right of, say, Dr Robert Oppenheimer, or Dr Henry Kissinger or even Dr Albert Einstein to use the title because they weren't medical doctors? Oddly, in Germany, they can double-up the "Dr" title if someone has two doctoral degrees - so they could say they were...
