Oh good grief. I detest Fashion with a capital F. The need to have something "New" just to stand out. IMHO, most of them are simply throwing sh..... stuff at the wall and seeing what sticks.

NOT helping.

The skirts for men trend might be reborn.
Except for the goofy fashion designers. "Look I reinvented the wheel. It's not really any different, but I will say it is and then I can charge charge 10 times what a original wheel."

If men's skirts do catch on in the designer world. Once the eek it's a man in a skirt gets past.
It won't be long after that the more common man will start looking for cheaper alternatives.

The getting past the "eek!" Will probably take the longest. Once that hurdle is crossed, it will be smooth sailing. Right into most skirts.

Adverts? I didn't see any, Adblock pro must work well.

Skirts for men are still on the unusual side of the spectrum of normality whether we like it or not.
That will always encourage the claggy/goofy nature of some of the designs.
The price of a manskirt as opposed to a skirt is a whole other aspect.
I saw one which I could happily wear but at $185 I'd just as soon cross the aisle and get similar or better at a fraction of the cost.
There was another one that could easily have been a derivation of one that I had custom made several years ago. Hmmm?

One way of not being bothered by adverts is by saying no to cookies.

Most of these sites dump the cookies on your browser before they ask permission.  If you don't want them, you have to delete them yourself.

As far as I know, banning cookies just means the site knows nothing about you, resulting in random adverts, whereas if you allow cookies the site will know you have visited previously, and some sites will look at your purchasing history, leading to the "Since I bought a wheelbarrow every advert I see is trying to sell me a wheelbarrow" syndrome. I never prevent cookies, I like websites to know what I did on my last visit including remembering I am logged onto them. I hate adverts, don't bother with commercial radio and only watch programmes that are advert free or on catchup where the adverts are left out, or at worst where I can fast forward over them. Adblockpro does a great job of keeping the ads away from my pc, it always shocks me when an advert jumps out of youtube, which reminds me not to use youtube, Facebook or twitter on my iPad!

By the time they ask you if you will allow cookies, the cookie has already been planted.  If you 'disallow' cookies and the website is honest, it will ignore the cookie from then onwards, but the cookie is still there.  Unless you delete it yourself, you have to trust them not to use it.

There is nothing to stop them using it another time or to stop someone else who is 'in the know' from using it instead - and you have no way of finding out whether it has been used.
