Why not tell M&S? Write a review of your own. Let them see that these can be regarded as unisex.

In the interests of the Year of the Dress I bought the plain grey one this morning.
I haven't even tried it on yet but pics will follow in due course.

For those who have bought garments online, don't forget to post your own review. Show firms like Marks and Spender that they have a market of male customers if they would only market some of their garments as unisex, and show other men that these items are perfectly suitable for them, too, and regular guys like us are wearing them.

Yes I would wear that !
Its a dress - what makes them so convenient is its a simple one stop shop.

mens clothes miss this opportunity.
thats why I really like the simplicity of a dress - and the shape can be very flattering too!

If a polo shirt dress rather like this tee shirt dress it might work. Just the little difference to transform it from night wear association to daywear.

Like this one:

Or this Fred Perry belted shirt dress

There ARE viable alternatives to trousers.

yes, those are 2 great options.
Casual looks to so they would work with a sneaker, or a wedge pump perhaps?

Yes and here is the evidence. Cool, comfortable and no great reaction from anyone around town this morning.
The photo was taken by a member of Starbuck's staff as I really don't like selfies.
That's another tick for the Year of the Dress.

Considering the numer of threads on dresses now, wouldn't it be better to have a separate chapter for dresses/gowns?

Well done, Stevie! You look rather like an aging hippie (which I suppose most of them are these days). It's the Jesus boots that do that. You also look ever so comfortable and contented.
Keep on skirting,

Nah. Not my style. If I was to wear a dress, I would wear a skater dress.
