looking for some advice here, i am 58 and started wearing skirts a few weeks ago.
i told my wife i wanted a skirt and i have her full support ( in fact she has told me that seeing me in 3 of my skirts turns her on )
i have 9 skirts now and they are all ladies off the peg types,
EG pvc pencil to flowy and shiny rara mini skirts, they are all sexy and feminine the sort ladies wear (not into mens or butch looking skirts) i love wearing them and feel sexy.
the advice i am looking for is how do i go out in public
my wife wants me to go for a walk with her somewhere secluded like walk around a field to start with in my denim mini
then to walk down a street ( estate street where there are houses) 1st at night when it is dark and then walk through a village while she follows me in the car then again in daylight wearing my silky flowy skirt (which would blow up if there was a breeze) she would be sat in the car watching me and tells me this would turn her on
after i have the courage to do this the next trip she wants me to do is go into a shop in daytime wearing a skirt.
then to just go for a walk together (say down the canal towpath etc,) but to enjoy doing so wearing a skirt and being seen by whoever may be around and not caring.
keep in mind all my skirts are the kind men would whistle or think wow if they seen women in them
thats a bit about me now can anyone here give me advice on,
how, where and when is best to come out the closet as it were
So you bought nine skirts in just a few weeks, eh? You must've been thinking about this a long time.
As to appearing in public, the best way is however you feel most confident. People will react to your mood and demeanor much more than to your clothes. Just try to avoid anything too eccentric. Think fashion rather than fetish.

Other wysiwyg would be to wear my wife's denim that come to the knee but is button thru at the front so still feminine
I'm new, too. But all my skirts (6 or 7 so far) are man-styled, as much as possible. No pleats or frills. Robust and practical and comfortable.
All have full-cut hems. "Pencil" is definitely the wrong configuration for me. I like side cuts (or "trim tabs" as I call them).
Knee length, front zip, belt loops, pockets front and back. All are solid colours except the camouflage (which is my favorite).
I have no desire to call attention to myself. My favorite footwear when in a skirt is Converse monochrome black low-tops without socks.
My usual shirt is a Ben Davis half-sleeve zip-front work shirt in various solid colors.
I am not looking for a feminine appearance in any manner. But I have absolutely no prejudice against those who do. I can appreciate fine feminine dresses and skirts and footwear as well as any male. I am heterosexual and not a cross-dresser. I consider myself to be a clothing liberationist and think that anyone should wear whatever configuration of clothing or footwear they like, without fear of misrepresenting themselves, or casting doubt on their
competence or masculinity.

Will let you know how it goes and praps get wife to take a pic to show on here too.
Nervous now but like you say
Once I've done it then it'll be easier
We would love to see the picture(s). I tried to take a picture myself in the hotel room using the self timer on the camera but it just did not work. So, folks, you have to wait a bit longer for pics of me.
As many have said before me . . . the first time is the hardest. After a while it just becomes natural. Go for it. Enjoy!
By the way, I'm new here too, and I think I am up to seven skirts now, including two that I bought on a recent trip. I went into a department store looking specifically for a skirt to go with a patterned top that I had purchased a few weeks ago. (From the women's side of the store. Fits me better than men's tops.) I found an amazingly helpful clerk. She knew her stock; she had great fashion sense, and she gave me several options on a skirt to go with the top (which I wore to the store). I really liked one of the skirts she picked to go with the top, and also ended up buying a black and white skirt and a top to go with it. So I spent much more money than I meant to, but had a super shopping experience, and now have two more outfits to try.

Hi and welome to the site! You will find lots of great advice her!
Your plan sounds great - to start gradually at night to build up confidence - as that is the main hurdle.
Ideas noted above such as starting with plain "blokeish" colours like denim or black is good before starting on the more feminine options.
The best news in your case is that the missus is ON BOARD with you and loves it. Quite a few here have serious prob;ems with their OH (including myself) wher skirts are not even tolerated and others who accpet it but only grudgingly.
I look forward to hearing of your first ventures out skirted!

I'm sure many members here are envious that you have such a supportive wife.That is a huge boost to your confidence and self esteem in skirt wearing. I have found that most people pay little attention to fairly short denim mini skirts, though here in Australia men's shorts are often of the same length, so the visual difference is slight. I love all sorts of skirts, but especially shorter ones and pencil skirts. In cooler weather with a somewhat elastic skirt, I find the feeling of some restriction in walking very sensual. On warmer days, a flared skirt beats the heat so much better than shorts, and the feeling of airflow underneath is sensual in a different way.
