A toast to Tom, indeed

Cheers to Tom ... I never met Tom, nor did I partake in the MSM in New York; that didn't happen because I willed it that way, but rather because our paths didn't cross in time. When I read Mr. Hansen's note the first thing I did was to look skyward -- I have no idea why (not subscribing to the noti...

The bloke is 'cross-dressing', in 'costume', to make a political point [...] I'll have to side with Merlin, mostly, on this one. The chap is doing it quite deliberately as a protest to get visibility for a perceived problem. This is, in and of itself, not necessarily a bad thing, but it does precio...

Hello CoffeeMUG, and welcome. I suspect you're just going to have to experiment for a while until you happen to find what size you are -- there's no direct conversion as far as I can tell. The general wisdom seems to be aim for the size that is closest to your hip size as guys will tend to wear the ...

I've done a couple. There's really not much to report, though; just two 17" minis with a basic wrap design and elasticised waists. (Three, if you count the one I made for The Wife.)

Rugby? Sounds like a bad wig....

[...]Rugby - [a] game of marginal skill, usually played by those not good enough for Football!)! I'd always heard it told that, "Rugby is one of those Celtic games where the presence of a ball serves as an excuse for semi-organised mayhem." Come on, though, golf courses provide a rich wildlife habi...

Alienated?

I have no intention of alienating anyone from this thread and I certainly appreciate anyone who has offered support. Heavens, no; I sincerely doubt you've alienated anyone. I believe we all know that once bureaucracy kicks in things move at a positively glacial pace. I salute your steadfastness in ...

Good shots!

Nice photos, Mike! I can't for the life of me see why your co-singers would have given you grief over your kilt. It looks fine to me!

Herd mentality.

The Daily Mirror[/i]"]Schoolboy Billy White may have gone a step too far though. The cheeky 13 year-old borrowed a skirt to wear which earns him full marks for initiative-but nil points for style. That comment is so sad, and so misguided. I'm not sure which reporter or editor let it slip into print...

17 inches, guts, and lunch

Well, I finally screwed up the nerve to wear one of my 17" minis out to lunch yesterday afternoon and it turned out to be.... a complete non-event. Now I'm put to wondering why I was so nervous about it in the first place.

"--- a housewife worried people will think she's a lesbian if her husband wears a skirt" I'm sorry, I cannot follow the logic here. Why would anyone think that - unless the husband was a full-blown cross-dresser/transvestite? I personally suspect that the only vehicles by which that jump in logic w...

I don’t look at it as free advertising. They gave me the shirt and I like it. OK, I can deal with that. No offence intended. On any given day I will run into a half dozen people I work with when I’m off work. Small town, perhaps? (Not a bad thing, mind you, I live in one myself and wouldn't change ...

Futbol

[Football] is war without death fought to a simplified set of rules that most men find easy to understand. The fans/spectators can see understand what is going on, and for the duration of the match, they feel they also understand the world and their place in it. Are you referring to US style "footb...

Off the clock means off the clock

Unfortunately some companies can and do chastise an employee for what they consider portraying the company in an unfavorable light when the employee is off work. My employer frowns on any association with men in skirts and I am the reason they developed a policy against it because I wore a kilt to ...
