Would You Wear This?

Post by Stu »

Something I always thought could catch on for men is a (male-cut) tee-shirt dress which would essentially be a tee or polo shirt, but mid thigh rather than stopping at the waist. This would make a super-comfortable item of nightwear on warm evenings, a "bumming about" item when at home, something to slip on when on the beach and so on. I spotted these in Marks and Spencer:

If they made the shoulders wider, the short-sleeves a bit longer etc, I would think there might be a market for them for men/boys. The question is - would you consider one?

Definitely good for nightwear and very casual bumming around the house, but I wouldn't wear one in a public setting -- just too casual.

I have several of these and I like them for bumming around the house. I have worn them for a quick trip to the trash compactor and gas. And once to the "quicky" store for milk. But I do not normally wear them out and about.
I find them very comfortable and easy to put on and take off.

I have some of these which i sometimes wear with a pair of leggings or sometimes just on there own. Useful when camping for trips to the shower blocks, saves dealing with to many clothes on wet floors.

I have one in a coffee colour that I use as night wear. I don't know if I could get to sleep wearing that bright colour.

I'd wear something similar but would prefer at least just below knee length to ankle length with a bit more flare.

Near a beach with a clothing shop - these are sold as swim suit cover-ups
Maybe not as long in length and sans pockets
"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 !

Thickness and opacity are going to be important, and especially if it comes out in something like a very long polo shirt I'd wear it. Even if it is only available as-is, if the material is thick/opaque enough I might be interested in using it as a tunic over leggings.

It is perfect.
Easy to dress up; just don a kilt over it and you are city-shape.
