Re: The Extreme!

Crashing a bicycle, in a skirt... on a curb, at a busy intersection :lol: I was bicycling in a skirt (nothing showing) and came to an intersection which happened to have no curb ramp (why!?!).

Re: Mens Skirts advertised

To each their own! :alien: I'm not the kind to wear it, personally. And it looks like many here are in agreement. Yet, this "fashion" has roots in recent fashion trends from what I've seen. I've noticed many young women wearing similar garb. Especially during the spring it seems, they wear tight jea...

Re: early 20th century parallels?

I can't remember ANYONE being diametrically opposed! Who would argue with those beautifully rounded hips, Etc... I'm referencing 1920s, 30s... not the 60s pantsuits or similar for women. Back in the 20s, etc (probably more in the city then farm country), a woman walking down the street in pants wou...

early 20th century parallels?

It is often discussed here and everywhere on the internet how the "skirts and kilts" phenomenon among men's fashion is very much akin to the women's trouser movement of the early 20th century. However, something else struck me as to the flip side of that early 20th century fashion revolution. Many o...

Why men like skirts - Skirt! Magazine

A while ago someone mentioned that Skirt! Magazine has a "He's so original" feature. Basically it features an artistic guy who poses in a skirt, and they show a photo of it. Along with their bio, they ask the person two questions: "The best thing about wearing a skirt? " and "The best thing about re...

I wonder if it wouldn't be worth trying to petition Paul Gaultier and other established men's skirts fashion designers to join the show? If we got even one of them in, it would be awesome!

This guy is definitely over the top, but is awesome. The term that comes to mind to describe his style is extravagantly "metrosexual": Someone who is very style and fashion conscious without boundaries to the typical "male" styles/fashion. Often its wrongly categorized as "gay", even though the man ...

Michigan state news

Looks like the Governor of Michigan has added "gender Identity or expression" to the anti-discrimination list:

Of course this isn't "skirts for men", however it levels the playing ground significantly.
