Life in a Kaftan

Discussion of fashion elements and looks that are traditionally considered somewhat "femme" but are presented in a masculine context. This is NOT about transvestism or crossdressing.

Nice look Ron and I can see the Russian influence and looks good on ya. The only thing is that the colour isn't one that I would wear though as green isn't a favourite of mine. I have very little clothing in green of any hue.
I believe in offering every assistance short of actual help but then mainly just want to be left to be myself in all my difference and uniqueness.

Ron, I can now see why it suits you. I can just imagine you as a Cossack with all the gear. We all have our favourite colours and, whilst I don't hate green it just doesn't seem to be a colour I have been attracted to.

Cool! I like the purple and black combination!

I also saw this on your flickr feed and thought it was bad ass:

Very good Ron and I can see the African influence in the style and colour. Do you have any other clothes apart from kaftans?

Hello again Ron, it's good to see that you are still with us.

That robe is an excellent bright colour, I love it!

Well I see that your hair has reversed direction. :lol: I like that colour which is appearing on my screen as a golden yellow. I think that the wide sleeves would be a bit of an iteration ( irritation ) to me and get in the way of things. But a good look.
