This one kind of shocked me this morning.
Pre work coffee and there was a guy in the cafe wearing what I can only describe as a dress,
He was engrossed in his phone and eye contact was not easy.
When I tried to initiate a conversation with "Good Morning", it was clear he wasn't interested so I just let him be.
From his accent and luggage I'd say he is a visitor from another part of the UK? Maybe just not a morning person.

So no idea what class he was, gender expressing or fashion stating either.

Just as others have no idea about us :)

My own thought was "Asassin's Creed", but that was only because my own son played the game in his young days.
The idea that there had never been a skirted male "superhero" had already been in my thoughts.
The whole cos-play scene is so vast that it is actually possible if not very likely.
The thought was actually inspired by Moon's experience with "The Lady Delores."
It would be better if you were right actually, but we may never know.

A few Assassins Creed games have skirted players and/or heroes. Another game with skirted men is Witcher 3 - Wild Hunt (incidental characters only - not the hero). A further one is Fallout 4 - New Vegas where there is a sect derived from Roman times and outfits You can also have your hero character wearing dresses - especially nice is a blue sparkly knee-length one! Goes well with an AK-47!!

At the time I had on a navy skirt and cream pullover.
I was just on the way to work but I always stop off for a coffee first.
The guy certainly was not a regular or I'm pretty sure I'd remember him.
Apart from the dress he also had on a really cool pork pie hat which we don't see much of up here.
I certainly hope he enjoyed the visit in any case.

Would you have remembered him if the last time you had seen him, he was in trousers?

If he had had on that hat, yes. It was that which drew my attention in the first place.
Unusual design for this neck of the woods and he was wearing it indoors which I think is a bit pointless.
Admittedly, otherwise, only had our paths crossed more regularly.

Hello there and long time no see, I hope that you are well!
Lets face it the female of the species can be pretty deadly. Black Widows have nothing on some human women.
Not that I am at all bitter or twisted you understand.

Hi Steve,
Thanks, I am well - just had my second jab on May 5. I still look in on the site but may not post much. I do wear skirts whenever possible tho... especially at golf or shopping.
Hope you are keeping well too.
