Ran across a "unisex" skirt at Nordstrom

It has some high-minded statements like, "There's a future where what you wear is whatever you want". My take: Yeah, but maybe something that doesn't look ridiculous? And doesn't cost an obscene amount of money? I mean, I don't think my opinion counts a ton, but these unisex fashions always look awful.

This was the listing I had originally come across:

One of the pictures show a dude wearing it over a pair of pants (ick) but the other thing is under the size drop-down, it only lists "Women's" size equivalents. Not really unisex. I emailed them about this oversight - LOL - they probably won't fix it.

Oh, and $198 for a piece of shapeless cloth??? Or just that cost in general.

Your opinion counts just as much as the next guy's does.

As far as "unisex" goes, recall that it's a codeword for turning women into ersatz men, not about expanding men's range or freedom of expression. The silly-looking stuff is not going to catch on with the general public, so it's frequently best to just ignore it.

As for the price, recall that you were looking at Nordstrom's...

Yeah, and I don’t even shop there - I had a web ad that was zoolanderesque and I just had to click on it!
