I agree that regional pockets will help a lot. As you point out, in a few places like Seattle, it may already be happening. Both the Scottish kilt and modern utility/cargo varieties like Utilikilts are already basically accepted in most places. They are paving the way for more variety of skirts for men.weeladdie18 wrote:Going back to the question in the title of this thread , .....I feel that the greater acceptance of the....

Practical considerations like temperature will always play a role as well. Change requires motivation. Not only do things need to be practical, they need to appear practical. Things like pockets and the ability to simply swap out for pants go a long way here. If people think you need other related items like special shoes, hose, a bag for your stuff, or other accessories, it will slow everything down. Even worse are things like shaving.
