When you look at his Instagram feed, you can tell he's high fashion anyway. Stepping out of a brand new Porsche, being chauffered in Mercedes (and he travels by train a lot) but there would be no point trying to influence the lower orders when the Rich control everything and have more influence and sway. That in turn has brought him into contact with celebrities and a lot of young people who may eventually take up the look. It is miles better than the offerings from the catwalk. EJ Johnson had a smart skirted look before going all femme -and it's that stereotype of skirt = transitioning which Mark is breaking.STEVIE wrote: ↑Sat Jan 08, 2022 6:40 amI do agree regarding the benefits to Marc but not the "Genderless Clothing" angle.new2skirts wrote: ↑Fri Jan 07, 2022 1:14 pmI say Mark never looks like he is in stuff from the local market some of the styles with high slits at the side aren't really me, and he wore some odd skirt / pants combo which threw me the other day (obviously modelling stuff), but his 15 mins of fame seem to be doing him well
There is nothing here to cause chains such as Zara, Warehouse, Hobbs or Joe Browns to consider removing the gender tags from their garments.
On the other hand I cannot see that it would cause Moss Bros or similar to introduce skirts for men to their offerings either.
Sorry man but Marc has gone high fashion and that alone will never bring "genderless" to the mass market.
Perhaps if he set his sights on Next or Marks and Spencer even Primark, who knows?
I couldn't see Mark in Next skirts on a local high street or shopping in Asda (Walmart) with the masses. The same seems to go for Vlasta (GenderBlender) and other Instagrammers in more luxurious locations
The mass market is keen to wear the same jeans or tracksuit bottoms and not to step out of line. I imagine for most guys fashion is expensive, so unless you have the means or interest, it would be something that just peters out over time.
I am more into Kilts and Highland Wear (trust me, it's expensive and not for those on modest means), but it's an expensive pursuit for the upper middle classes sadly. Especially in Corona days where there's few events to kilt up for. Currently looking to buy an £800 Kilt Suit in tweed, light years away from thrifted jeans skirts from charity shops. Even Thrift or Charity shops have gone upmarket and it's more designer labels in there
Sadly, genderless dressing is a social construct out of the reach of the masses. JeffB dresses well, Coder too, and Alastair who used to post here, but you will find they are in well paying jobs. It requires capital for the clothes, then the thick skin to get out and wear them
