Re: Skirt lengths

This is the opinion of Wikipedia.

Seems right to me.

Re: The supermarket

Last Saturday I went for the first time to my "normal" supermarket Redner's. I was in a kilt with knee high socks (cold and windy) so it was not really daring. Groceries shopping is not a hobby of me so I went through my shopping list as if it was a military operation as usual. I noticed a few women...

Re: Getting better

....... Oh, and even managed to climb a gate - not easy in a skirt :oops: With a skirt you have to re-learn doing the things you are doing for years. :wink: Years ago in Holland I had a girlfriend. She was quite boyish and like to vault over the three feet high poles that are used to keep the cars ...

Re: Skirt Wearing Tips

I wear skirts (and kilts) mainly for comfort. The last thing I would do is to make a fashion statement. I wear skirts the same way as shorts. The fabric and color is more or less identical. So what fits with shorts will also fit with skirts in my case. If I try to shave my legs, I will be banned fro...

Shopping in a kilt

I had to do some shopping, Home Depot and Rite Aid. With the cold and rainy weather, I wore a kilt and long woolen socks. It was my first time to shops where they knew me. Not more than a few surprised looks from the crew and customers. I'm getting more confidence being in a kilt in the open. So All...

Re: Skirtcraft Aqueous Skirt - Feedback?

The back zipper is a no-no for me. As said before, very unpractical. Those spiral seams are too much bells and whistles to me. I prefer something practical. I think it is better to get the general public accepting the idea of a man in a simple skirt first. When that is accomplished, bring in the dec...

Re: Never skirted in public

My first outings were in the nearby woods. 20 bike minutes away is a stretch of wood where paths for mountain bikers are made. It is quite isolated and depending on the time of the day or the day in the week it is very quiet. On my 2 to 3 hour hikes, I might see 0 to 10 people. I change behind the b...

Re: Skirted in the house

I had a discussion with my wife yesterday and it appeared that she still was thinking I wore kilts. As a sort of transition from kilts, I made a skirt with a front like a kilt and it was accepted by my wife and also by some friends of her. Now she realizes I wear skirts she accept it more or less bu...

Skirted on the bike

Last Wednesday I went for a bike ride along the canal. The last time I went on the bike to the start of that trail through dense traffic. This time I took the car, already in the denim skirt. After a few minutes along the canal a schoolclass approached me. One kid did not pay attentention and after ...

Skirted in the house

Since a year, I wear kilts in and around the house. A few of them I made myself. One of them is a kilt in denim. I also wear skirts when on my hikes in nearby woods, but the family knows nothing about that. Recently I made a denim skirt slightly shorter than my denim kilt. Yesterday I went to the be...

Re: where are we all from

Now THERE's a romantic story, Eborian. Nice Born during WW2, you're probably my vintage. ...... I'm afraid you got something mixed up. I was born in the Netherlands in 1944 and went through the Hungerwinter. A few years I had an American penpal (1963/68) and we reconnected again in 2007. After a fe...

Re: The bicycle dilemma

I'm from Holland so riding a bike is 2nd nature. The proper height of a saddle is when you can stretch your leg with the heel on a pedal. The pedal should be in the lower position of course. Riding a bike with a skirt is not much of a problem when the skirt is not too short and wide enough at the he...

Re: Camouflage skirt

I bought a knee length camo skirt and a mini skirt. The knee length skirt is very sturdy and has pockets almost everywhere. Beside those, I made a kilt in camo and from the left over fabric I made two mini skirts. They are ideal for my hikes.
