Spotted in an East of England city three days ago - a man in a kilt that wasn't quite a standard Scottish kilt. It was a skirt.
It was in the coffee cafe of a big supermarket and, at leisure with my latte, seated (wearing jeans I'm sorry to say, dudes), I was at leisure to observe two things:
1. The fashion style and here's a thing - the man's legs were hairless. Also he was wearing not court shoes exactly, but a bit of a heel and shoes that veered more towards the feminine than the masculine. No tights as far as I could see but he may have had on a light denier and my eyes aren't so great so that's quite possible.
2. I was at leisure, equally importantly to watch the observations of others. This slice of society was mostly made up of standard middle class rather affluent family groups: Young girls, slightly older girls. Boys and young men and their older parental or guardian generation. All as far as I could see were dressed conventionally.
Did they look and stare? Yes they did actually a bit, but not in a hostile way. More of a - oh well let's acknowledge diversity and a bloke in a skirt? What's to get too fussed about. Probably in touch with his feminine side.
Just to finally add that the skirt had a bit of poof to it - and it did look like he may have had on some kind of underskirt or petticoat.
All in all a most interesting interlude and I now feel like drumming up the balls to join him and wear my own favourite fitted A-line skirt.
Reading this post made me think.
When shopping at the supermarket skirted, I usually shop reasonably quickly then soon go on my way.
Recently, feeling brave, I made a point of going for a coffee in the Costa Coffee shop in the supermarket first before walking around the store to do my shopping.
There was a queue for the till and then again as they made the drink.
I took the drink to a table and sat and relaxed. I think that I got one odd look from another customer of the cafe.
I was dressed in an A-Line skirt (above the knee), nearly black, 20 denier, medium support tights, black patent, Mary Jane heels and a black cross body bag. Black long-sleeved polo shirt.
