The splits look way too high for me. I wear below the knee cotton or polycotton petticoat slips combined with a low neck mens vest in bed.

I bought one off AliExpress, it came too short with the slit too high, so it went straight to the recycling.

It does look good for a hot day (I live in Scotland so this isn't going to happen, :lol: )
I think if they advertised it without the dreaded 'skirt' word a lot of younger guys would probably go for it, making skirts more acceptable hopefully

The idea with a pyjama skirt is good, I think. But the Wish company has an extremely bad image.

There ARE viable alternatives to trousers.

This reminds me of an article of clothing advertised in the weekend supplements in the ‘80s It was called a “Guy’s Wrap. It was a short wraparound skirt and it was marketed to appeal to masculinity. It obviously didn’t catch on. Does anyone remember it or was even tempted into a purchase?

It was mid to late 70's my wife & daughter gifted me a "guy's wrap around" -- not sure if what you are referencing; this was a 14" long blue wrap with partially elasticized waist band. 48" when stretched out flat. There are three button for fitting waist size and a single darker blue patch pocket. I never considered it a skirt, but a swim wrap as in those days we still wore short trunks, speedos or generous bikini's in Canada. I used it a lot, especially in hotels going to the pool, etc. but not stand-alone as a skirt as it was more like a glorified towel than outer wear. Still have it all these years later albeit with a few thin or wear through small holes! No label except washing instruction.
