Re: pandemic trend

Offhand, I'd suspect that anything that's going on in Madonna's world doesn't much resemble what passes for reality.

As far as those who wish to live in the Old Testament world -- well, let's bring back public stonings.

Re: New York Times article

More than "simple, sensible, & masculine" clothes is that society's view of a guy in anything but drab is somehow "defective" needs to change -- and the media needs to get that message (unless they already have and don't care or see a profit in the current reporting). Unless attitudes shift, it's go...

Re: Earthbound Trading Unisex Dress

If men might be willing to wear a garment at home, but not in public, could they be persuaded to wear house dresses? Perhaps these might be marketed as tunics , and be categorized as lounge wear. We have ready access to bathrobes, and in yesteryear had banyans; so those options are definitely on th...

Re: New York Times article

While I thought the article was somewhat helpful, there was something about their take on it and the over-reliance on gender and sexuality in the article that bugged me. Indeed. It's this idiotic stance that any guy who dares to challenge The Norms of Society when it comes to style choices must be ...

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!

Re: woke

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 to be dismissive of some egregious conduct which merits dismissal) that was said years ago and no longer reflects on the person at 16 who uttered/wrot...

I didn't bother to waste the time watching it. If it was good, it would have rated some commentary -- hopefully cogent.

I will say this, though: It's not a term I'm particularly fond of.

Looking very smart.
I would have chosen a slightly longer dark coloured skirt but I suppose that was his only available choice.
Indeed. No deltas on the look.

Sometimes one needs to work with the tools one has at hand at the moment, and it seems this one went well.

Re: Story from Spain

"Clothes have no gender" is a great slogan! Indeed, it is high time that the notion of gender-specific apparel be dealt its last blow -- and may that blow be mortal to the notion. There is precisely no logic whatsoever to the idea that clothing should be reserved for one sex/gender or the other. "W...

This is generally good advice for virtually low-risk operations, and certainly swapping trousers for a kilt or skirt is, in most cases, low-risk.

The fact is that women have themselves to thank for their wider choices and now it is time for men to grab a piece of the same action.
It can only lie in our own hands nobody will give it on a plate.
Indeed, we can take this as gospel.

Re: Interesting perspective

No, I am not going to give them blanket access to my hard-drives and GPS kit just to read an article so they can push even more adverts at me. I get enough of that already every damned waking minute.

Re: Mens Suiting Is Drab

"no white before (US) Memorial Day" dictum. I had never even heard of this little gem. I wonder how it was originally justified so as to become so embedded? Certainly kicks absurdity up to a whole new level and fashion is full of it too. I'm not entirely sure of its origin, but might well surmise i...
