I quite like Jaeger. They make simple garments, but high quality and last for ages if you look after them. But they are presently fighting for survival because of the pandemic.

Anthony,

I couldn't care less about many skirt brand names, but that one looks like a very sensible skirt especially for our climate.
Very wearable.

I just don't like the "V" insert at the hem; always looks like it was converted from pants or a pants pattern.

Yeah, I see where you are coming from. Still a presentable skirt.
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.

thats a nice skirt (the Nude Lucy)
Practical length and the nude colour is verasatile.
I'm in agreement on the V insert in the front hemline - I prefer the straight lines without the insert
I wonder is it lined - I prefer to wear lined skirts
And to be picky (cause I can be) I prefer a finished hem - not the raw hem which seems to be trendy a bit at the moment.

cheers

I doubt that sort of skirt would be lined. I used to think raw hems were a good candidate for doing building work but discovered that they end up tearing there without a folded and seamed edge - also the raw edge adds to the cutoff pants look.

Is the Y a tromp l’oeil? Maybe the intent is to make it look more like shorts?

That was my assumption too. Making it resemble shorts would enable you to get away with a very short length more easily. Trompe l'œil is a favourite technique among fashion designers, as you can see from those red-carpet dresses at film premieres. Is there a V at the back also?

Strange brand name. Life with Bird
Plain but has plenty a flare and nice thick wool tweed for winter - although still months away for me.
Size 0 sounds like it would be small as I have not heard of minus sizes.

Then in the description, it says size 6 to small 8. Need to ask the actual waist size if you have any interest. Some 6s and 8s fit my 30-31 inch waist, but "may not post to the United States".
