It's a good share.
I will give the fashion designers a A for effort.
For putting skirts on men.

Now if they would get in touch with reality. Practical and inexpensive. I agree us "peasant folk" are the key in making a difference.
I was able to get two of my friends in kilts for a Ren fair. I ask them in 2017 they both turned the offer down, when I ask in 2028 they both said sure. Both times I ask I ask them separately as I did not want peer pressure to influence the decision in either direction. So time will only tell if they will choose to don a kilt again.

If you know your family and friends well there's the possibility of gifting a kilt, Longyi, sarong or skirt for a birthday or Christmas.
Curiosity might get the best of them. Guaranteed it will be a memorable gift whether they wear it or not.
Just be sure to get them the right size.

Avoid the middle man, wear a kilt or skirt.

I have no idea of proportion but off the peg skirts in general must outstrip designer garments by some margin.
Simply, we peasants outnumber the designers clientele by another.
The ladies don't get practical and inexpensive from the catwalk shows so we can't expect to either.
Just take a short walk to cross the aisle and take from their selection. It's cheaper and you won't have to wait forever and a day either.
The retailers will get the message when they can see some profit to be had, not sooner.

I think this nails the matter very handily.

Retailers are in the game to make money -- and they can be relentless in that pursuit. Like sharks [0], if they "smell blood in the water" they'll go into a frenzy; other than that they're just "big fish" [1].


[0] Except for the whale shark, which is a plankton-feeder.
[1] Yes, I know that sharks aren't technically "fish".
