Hey... Been a lurker for a (long) while now...I'm interested in all sorts...basically I wanna smash up every rule I've had to live by for my adult life...including being told what I should wear and how I 'should' present myself! Balls to that.... I could be dead tomorrow! I love music...being myself and dressing up smart and having fun! Hoping for a warm welcome! Cheers!

Welcome, English_bloke, glad to have you out of the shadows. And break all the fashion rules you want. If not now, when?
Courage, conviction, nerve, verve, dash, panache, guts, nuts, balls, gall, élan, stones, whatever. Get some and get skirted.

Hi!
You're not alone. I think there are 3 others in this bottom left hand corner of the UK (and others if you go further afield).

The only way

is to actually go out and wear what you want, appear as you want in the real world, so long as no physical harm is done to others. I assume you do wear and appear as you want. I do in many aspects of life, publicly, socially, business sitations, doctors, dentists etc etc. Only when trousers are more practical for an activity I don't and that does not include a third party not liking a man in a skirt.

Very positive and vibrant words. Not sure about "smash up every rule I've had to live with" but will put that down to a figure of speech within the realms of clothing and appearance choice. You need positivity and confidence to move about society in the real world when not conforming to society expectations, especially as a man.

Welcome to Skirtcafe. You will have support here.
Be yourself because an original is worth more than a copy.
