Re: Gender-neutral school uniform collection, including a 'shirtskirt', launches in Taiwan

I wish the "shirtskirt" existed at my school back where I was from elementary to high. Taiwan is definitely doing something right here. If offered, I imagine those boys who are more athletically inclined would probably choose the pants option. Either that, or, if the shirtskirt is the only non-PE un...

Re: 2020 Emmy Awards.

Maybe pumps aren't his thing. If I were wearing an outfit like that I'd go for loafers instead.

Re: 2020 Emmy Awards.

I saw that outfit in this morning's paper. It's cool Yes, that "feminine side" thing is a little over-used. Maybe it's just a man claiming what Society/Tradition (TM) wishes to deny him, on the grounds that he should always be ready to ride a horse or something outdated like that? Also I can't help ...

Re: Swim skirts: Crossing a line?

That probably was something VERY unusual to them, to elicit the whistle! At least sounds like they and you took it in great fun/stride. The "Fakaleiti" literally means "in the manner/style/way of a lady", they took the English word there. In Samoa it's called Fa'afafine (literally "in the way of a w...

Re: Swim skirts: Crossing a line?

A couple of times I've gone swimming in sarongs, was nice. If you keep moving, then it's not really a big deal, although it does feel funny with...non-conventional drag. I read that in Samoa they used to swim in their ie lavalava, at least as late as the 70's (probably later in more remote villages)...

Re: Twit two

So she HOOTED at you? (Ok, seems in the UK they "twit-two", but the rest of the English speaking world owls "hoot") Would you call that an owl-call or an owl-whistle? Fun fact: the stereotypical "beautiful woman" two-tone whistle comes from the US Navy. That type of whistle, done on a boatswain's wh...

Re: Keromar: old TV series from Belgium

Thank you for the link. Saw the first episode. Naturally, had to think of what was going on, not knowing any Flemish myself (nor Dutch, but....apparently Flemish is radically different even though the languages are often lumped together) Yes, the Kers do look comfortably dressed. I rather like those...

Re: New guy just learning the ropes

Another nightshirt wearer! Cool! Yes, if there was some kind of day version of a nightshirt that I could get away with wearing, I would....except for the current weather up here. So many people seem to automatically think men who like skirts are gay, when many gays don't like them (they want men, an...

Re: WARNING!!!

One thing, if you ever get a call claiming to be government (usually tax agency, not always), don't believe them. If you truly owe money, you'd get notified either by registered mail or by bailiff/process server. Do not call the callback number. Also, there is no way to track down a specific compute...

Re: Upkilting isn’t a laughing matter

From what I read, at one time...the Scotsmen both did and didn't wear anything under their kilts. As was done in much of Europe at the time, many men, especially those who were poorer, wore their nightshirts as undershirts during the day. Those who wore trousers just tucked in the "longer" part, and...

Re: A Modern Style of Tunic or Robe

Scroll down a bit, to "Free People Calico Cotton Trapeze Dress". Do you have something like this in mind? Notice how the garment flares below the arms. https://www.macys.com/shop/featured/trapeze-dress Cool, I remember a few years ago I was going to "fripperies" (thrift stores) and costume shops lo...

Re: A Modern Style of Tunic or Robe

If the garment is loose enough one might pull it over ones head, like a T-shirt. Kind of how I imagine the ideal garment. I was recently re-inspired to think about it, because talking with an online friend about, among other things, the oversized turtleneck sweater-dress worn by the three main char...

Re: Halloween plans skirted, kilted or other?

My outfit for recent Halloween related stuff, including a party at school today (I'm now back at school, learning to be a paralegal), was Prince Janus of Zeal, from the early 90's video game Chrono Trigger. There seem to be a few different interpretations as to what he's wearing, but me, my variant ...
