I thought I would have a measure of some of my favourite skirts and most seem to come out at around 11". Looking at them when they are hanging up then I think that this gives a nice aesthetic when coupled with a size 10 waist. When walking in the street then this length probably gives pretty much the optimum in freedom of movement as there's no material to restrict the legs. Winter time I will often wear a longer skirt (or kilt), maybe even woollen for a bit of extra warmth, but not to long. At only 168cm (5'6") knee length skirts make me look dumpy, so this is a length I avoid. I have a few full length skirts that I adore, but they are not very practical, especially walking up stairs, so I probably won't wear these out more than 2 or 3 times a year, if that.

Hey, come on SkirtsDad, it's no hassle to just grab a bit of a long skirt with one hand and pull up a couple inches for those stairs -- and as you know the floor length can be so much fun, as well as warm, decorous, modest -- and blah or eye grabbing as you please. That is not say I've not stepped on my hem a few times! :?

In cooler weather I wear longer skirts. I've learned the biblical practice of girding up my loins, making the skirt shorter by pulling it up into my belt, when needed. Quick and simple.

For me, my favourite length is from the knees to maybe 4 inches above, but this varies with weather and what I am wearing.
Sometimes I might wear a sarong around the house that might be 3 or 4 inches above ankles, other wise, folded, be mid thigh..

My wife doesn't mind either longer or shorter on me, her usual length is more like mid thigh.
