Good luck to him and a boost for us all!
Skirt Cafe is an on-line community dedicated to exploring, promoting and advocating skirts and kilts as a fashion choice for men, formerly known as men in skirts. We do this in the context of men's fashion freedom --- an expansion of choices beyond those commonly available for men to include kilts, skirts and other garments. We recognize a diversity of styles our members feel comfortable wearing, and do not exclude any potential choices. Continuing dialog on gender is encouraged in the context of fashion freedom for men. See here for more details.

I think there is Stu.
I suspect that in this particular case there may have been other factors working in the employee's favour, including possibly being liked and/or respected by local staff and management who were willing to go to bat for him. This could well be a one-off.STEVIE wrote: ↑Tue Mar 09, 2021 7:40 pmAs far as I can tell a UK employer is not obliged to have a gender neutral or equal dress code.
If the male employee in a skirt is seen as being potentially detrimental to the business then trousers could be enforced,
The measure appears to be what is "generally acceptable", and yes, fashion is an element.
In the Tesco case it was accepted by the management and good PR for them too.
Nor would I; legal systems move at glacial paces unless there's significant societal or political pressure, and a guy who simply wishes the right to wear a skirt for no other reason than he does is not likely to receive any sort of consideration.However, had that gone to tribunal if they had rejected his choice I would not have bet on a successful outcome.
You hit the nail on the head there. I have been a journalist and too often it's all "Shall I try to hold to account the rich and powerful? Naaah! I'll talk to this guy about his sartorial choices!"moonshadow wrote: ↑Thu Mar 11, 2021 4:05 amHe looks natural in that skirt... it suits him well...
Any of you all wonder why some of these reports exist? I mean, no 1) why is wearing a skirt so newsworthy? But no 2) Most of us wear skirts all of the time, and no journalist has ever approached us...
Not that I'm angling for an interview, but sometimes I just wonder... that's all.
Honestly if a reporter approached me about doing a story on my fashion choices, I'd likely respond ... "slow day at the paper today? Surely there must be a cat stuck in a tree around here somewhere..."
Well, I suppose there are the "lifestyles" sections of the news, but as men have been wearing skirts since the dawning of civilization.... how is this "news"?
There are Rivegauche but they are part of the established uniform and therefore considered acceptable.
