Re: Overly Flamboyant Outfits Detrimental to Mainstreaming MIS?

I think we would do best if we looked at traditional men's skirts and riffed off that look. For example, try riffing off the Fijian sulu. Style it like how they do in Fiji. Buy a plain, straight, midi-length dark blue/grey skirt and wear it with a suit on top. Maybe a T-shirt or button up shirt on t...

Overly Flamboyant Outfits Detrimental to Mainstreaming MIS?

It's already enough of a battle for cis-hetero men to wear a plain, no-frills skirt with an otherwise masculine outfit to work. But at least if you do so, half the people will understand you're simply a cis-hetero guy who likes wearing skirts (even if the other half of the population mistakes you as...

Re: Making the effort....inspiration for us.

Where do others get their inspiration from? If inspiration is low on the streets, where else should we be looking? On the Amtrak to Cleveland I had a great conversation with a girl no more than five years older than me. Yellow, unisex, short-sleeved, crew neck T-shirt with a maneki-nekko on it. It ...

Re: A Formula for Successfully Selling Men's Skirts

I know some of you don't like the thought of marketed, men's skirts, in traditional male colors and basic masculine styles. But let's say several companies do make a rugged boring grey skirt for men. Atleast it's a skirt for men, it's a start in the right direction. It's a free country, and for the...

With one exception: if you are wearing a skirt to express national identity, like a Fijian man in America wearing a sulu to work. National origin is protected under the same laws as gender identity (Title VII, etc.)

Re: A Formula for Successfully Selling Men's Skirts

From my perspective, the main thing that prevents me from buying a "women's" skirt are the small sizes. Perhaps, conversely, that the main thing that propelled things like "boyfriend's fit" pants was because it's easier for a woman's small body to fit into a pair of men's oversi...

Re: "Women Care About Personality, not Looks"

Back to the topic. There are several premises that come out of the mouths of the same people, yet they seem contradictory: Premise 1: "Women care about personality, not looks, while men care about looks, not personality." Conclusion 1: If that's true, then women should be the ones who are ...

"Women Care About Personality, not Looks"

Conventional wisdom tells us that when looking for a mate, women care about personality first, a steady salary second, and looks dead last. As in perhaps not caring about looks at all. As in choosing the bald guy with a heart of gold over the handsome but rude guy. Good. Then women shouldn't care wh...

Re: MIS Skews Older?

the odds are that the guy wearing the skirt is straight vastly outweigh the odds of him being on the "Spectrum". A glimmer of hope? Perhaps most men in skirts...are indeed cishet men, rather than pre-op trans-women? Perhaps my skirt-wearing colleague who used the men's restroom, had a dee...

MIS Skews Older?

It seems like most on this forum skew older than the median age of males in the Anglosphere. Why? And why are young men more afraid of wearing skirts than older counterparts are?

Re: Sightings "in the wild"

The other day I was out the front here and across the road walked a group of young people, probably about 16 to 19 I'd say from a distance, two girls and two guys, one of them, definitely a guy with whispy facial hair and plenty of shoulder length frizzy hair was wearing a long, almost ankle length...

Re: Sightings "in the wild"

The problem at this juncture starts to look like the proverbial chicken-and-egg problem and a deadlock results. Men (the overwhelming percentage of which are "straight") aren't going to widely adopt skirts because of all the shaming, slandering, and policing -- overt and covert -- regardi...

yeah I meant two inches either above or below the center of the knee, so roughly four inches of range for "proper Kilting".
Meanwhile for men's dress pants it's like one inch of range for "proper panting".

Re: Sightings "in the wild"

And this is what we need to fight against. Do not make assumption or judgement of someone based on what they choose to wear. Barry 100%. But the only way to fight against this is for more cis-hetero men to wear skirts. Then whenever someone says "excuse me ma'am" or asks "what's your...
