Or maybe the belt and buttons with diamond encrusted jewels makes up the true value of that outfit.
Forget the rhinestone boots.
Then again maybe the fabric content is some space age man made material impervious to critical sarcastic comment !

At that price a Chinese factory could make 100,000 copies of the same.
"Kilt-On" -or- as the case may be "Skirt-On" !
WHY ?
Isn't wearing a kilt enough?
Well a skirt will do in a pinch!
Make mine short and don't you dare think of pinching there !

I think that camels are vegetarian so perhaps this could be called a vegan camel skirt.

Here’s a strange one:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/NewStylish-Men ... 3595832856

eBay also offers up alternative “mens skirts” suggestions when you hit up that link. I just don’t understand these styles but they must be popular - that item has 27 watchers.

Why is it that "men's skirts" often look ridiculous and the "men" stand with their legs apart like an ape? (trying to look tough in a skirt?)
I worry about the large cutaway at the front might suggest a flasher, in fact the second last pic looks like he is going to flash or have a pee.

Arrrrrrrrrghhhhhhhh.........

Exactly!

I wonder if there is something culturally we are missing? Most of these “mens skirts” come from asian countries - perhaps we lack awareness of normal street styles in those countries. Alternatively it could be a weird translation error - at least in the case of the plaid abomination I shared.

The other “mens skirts” styles - yeah they usually are shirtless (because that proves “manliness” somehow, maybe reassures people you are flat on top), and have a quasi-fighting stance. In either case they just look dumb.

For those into dresses.
Has everything going for it (linen, flare, colour) except for the top of the bodice that looks like eyes popping out.

I kind of like it, although would not be able to wear it myself because I have nothing up top to fill it with.

What's wrong with a little bit of whimsy in life? I think we need more of it to keep the mind thinking positively.

Another one to cheer you up - perhaps not the price.

That reminds me of a peacock.

Not for me.

The bodice doesn't look long enough to cover the tits! Maybe it's stretchable.
I believe in offering every assistance short of actual help but then mainly just want to be left to be myself in all my difference and uniqueness.

Or then just maybe when the upper torso is adequately covered the hem line is raised sufficiently above the hips to reveal - well I am not going further with this - - - - -

It's a skirt, not a dress.

If not worn carefully that peacock might be spelled differently! However, looks like a fun skirt for the right occasion -- should certainly generate a little conversation --or hot/cool air!

An interesting little number. My size but black is not my colour.
