Re: How far we've come

I've just found this article about male clothing in 1929: http://www.oldmagazinearticles.com/article.php?Article_Summary=2775 "It seems universally agreed that the male dress at the present time [1929] is the most unhygenic, inartistic, somber, and depressing form of costume that the mind could well...

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

Yesterday Mrs C and I went to Hestercombe Gardens, near Taunton. I wore a 4" above the knee denim skirt. No-one seemed to notice or care; and it was soooo comfortable. We were in the Wells branch of Tesco this morning. Mrs C complimented a woman on her dress (it was very nice) and a general discussi...

Re: Manly dresses, girly dresses

I remember when my little sister had a sun dress, and couldn't understand why I wasn't allowed to have one :(
65 years later I still don't understand why it was OK for sis, but not for me.

I went walking a couple of days ago wearing a denim skirt. I met a few different people, but no adverse reactions.

Re: Social distancing is easy! Try this....

This reminds me of the story about Sarah Ann Henley who, on Thursday 7th May 1885, threw herself off the Bristol Suspension bridge. "It was a breezy day and witnesses claimed that she turned a complete somersault so was falling feet first – when a gust of air blew beneath her crinoline skirt and slo...

Re: Coronavirus, how are you managing at home?

My wife reckons there's going to be a baby boom when this is over. I won't be responsible - I was part of the baby boom post WW2.

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

One down side to all this corona virus business is that we are advised to limit external visits to places. So, where I would normally have gone out to visit shops skirted [0] I would now feel a bit conspicuous doing so. [0] MOH being at work so I am free to do so without the discouraging looks/rema...

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

Out in the City of Wells this afternoon doing some shopping. Wearing black knee high boots, a long denim skirt, an orange top and orange tights and a yellow padded jacket. Had a good time browsing the shops and managed to buy myself a purse from a charity shop and a knee length yellow skirt from a ...

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

I'd arranged to meet Mrs C at the local supermarket, and was waiting for her to arrive when a woman came up to me. "Excuse me for asking, but why are you wearing a skirt?" (ankle-length A-line denim). "Because I like wearing skirts" She said she'd worn trousers ever since being raped, I guess back i...

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

In the butcher's shop this morning, waiting while the lady in front of me was being served. I was wearing an ankle-length A-line denim skirt. She turned to me and said she liked my skirt, and that it must be nice and warm. I replied that yes, it is, and its lovely to wear. End of conversation, but l...

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

Mrs C and I went to the solicitors today to talk about power of attorney in case one of us went crazy (in my case, being even crazier than wearing a skirt :lol: ). We both wore knee-length A-line denim skirts, not by design, it just happened that way. The solicitor looked at us and made a comment ab...

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

Next door, there live twin girls, six years old. The've seen me many times in various skirts and we've had many conversations about me wearing them. Today, I was working in the garden, minding my own business and wearing a knee-length denim skirt - sunny day, so nice and comfortable. The girls had a...

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

Just back from a holiday in Gran Canaria. On the info leaflet at the hotel, it said that it is mandatory for men to wear long trousers and a collar shirt for the evening meal in the restaurant. I'd packed a pair of trousers just in case, but decided to push the boundary and wear a heavy, purple saro...
