Exactly! On my nudist forum, I explained how to make "nudist shorts" for those who thought they might need to quickly cover up. I showed a picture of cut-off shorts, then cut out the part between the legs. I showed a picture of how they looked, and how the "shorts" could be rolled up to just be a belt.

You just reminded me, a long time ago when I used to do a lot of nude hiking, my wife made me some velcro cut-offs that could be easily taken on and off and appeared to be shorts from any reasonable distance. Funny that I really didn't think of it as a skirt back then, but I suppose in some way maybe it was.

A pant, or if denim, a jean. Since skirts don't come in pairs.

I don't think this was mentioned - Faldaguy used it in another thread:

mono-tubes

Though I think "mono-tube" would be more accurate.

"Jean" could also be short for "jean skirt".
