Nike skirt and purple rain kilt

Post by photoguy207 »

I came across this skirt from Nike on Instagram. Saw it, And ordered it over the weekend, it arrived yesterday. I got the black/dark green

https://www.nike.com/t/sportswear-icon- ... CZ3384-010

It’s a really cool skirt. I love the fabric, really light. Has a tie at the waist and one on the bottom. It hits just around my knees and has two really nice and useful pockets.

I also saw that purple rain skirts have kilts back in stock. I have one of those coming too. Just when I think I have enough.....I see more skirts I want!! Or is it need? ;-)

It does look light and cool. Nice to see models with a bit of flesh on their bones.

Probably the word is want if you have over 5 skirts.
Call yourself a collector whereas there is no limit.

Anthony; come on...over 5 is a collector -- that is not even one a day for the week; short, midi, knee, mid, long; A, straight, full; denim, rayon, linen, silk; plain, patterns, flowered, etc al....! Aren't you that same guy who is checking eBay out several times a week. :P

Photoguy -- I'm in your camp with about 60 in my closet at any given time, and I know I'm outnumbered by a factor of 5 or even 10 from some on this site...go for it! Want/need -- it doesn't matter unless the closet rod is sagging! :)

I could see me wearing the Nike skirt. Looks light, cool and comfortable. As usual the price is the deal breaker. That prevents me from getting alot of neat skirts. :(

Denimini I totally agree, it is nice to see plus size models, not the starved looking gals you usually see.

I'll buy that logic, I'm a skirt collector.

Avoid the middle man, wear a kilt or skirt.

Indeed, I might to to make a copy of it, if I could find the right material. It's described as 100% polyester, so I'm assuming it's the kind of light plastic material they make tents out of? It must be pretty light to hold its shape like that.

Photoguy, would you mind if I ask how tall you are? On the model in these product shots, it looks *way* above the knees:

Yes, it’s a very light material. It has a elastic cord at the waist and bottom of the skirt with a clip to hold it. It’s stays on really nice and the bottom cord is a nice touch too to keep the skirt from flaring out too much if you don’t want it to.

Thank you! I'm 4" taller than that, but I reckon the model in those photos would tower over both of us ;-) Or possibly they make the samples shorter because it looks good on a model. I think I'll just have to find the skirt and see how it goes.
