I don't think there's ever going to be some magic unbifurcated garment that makes men say, "Now that's something I would wear."

It'll more likely be something that starts in a small trend-setting niche of society and then inexplicably goes viral.
Courage, conviction, nerve, verve, dash, panache, guts, nuts, balls, gall, élan, stones, whatever. Get some and get skirted.

Indeed! I now see lots more men carrying handbags (hate the term manbag), current estimates are the 10-15% of UK men now carry handbags.

Not so long ago, having a handbag would have attracted a lot of negative attention, nowadays not so.

I'd like to know how this happened and transpose it to skirt wearing!!!

Kilts look great, Instagram searches show the amount of men wearing them, even for casual events, increasing, but they are expensive, with a decent new one £100 / $140. When someone can buy jeans for a quarter of that price and not watch how they sit or not ruin pleats, it's easy to see why kilts are more for special events and not everyday wear. Skirts would be more practical but UK weather doesnt stay hot enough for a great deal of time, and men think "skirt = female" which is a hurdle to overcome. There are more 'men in skirt' stories making the news, but it is more protests to get to wear shorts. When an employer agrees that shorts can be worn, the skirts quickly disappear :(
