Pockets differences

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.

In my game, Dental restorations we go for Mu...1000ths of a MM.
You do realise that capital 'M' is the prefix for "mega" (10^6) ?
There is no such thing as a normal person, only someone you don't know very well yet.

You're right, of course, Pelmut. My mistake, but it doesn't alter the size of the measurement referred to. About the nearest we can get crown margins to 'fit' realistically is about 40 mu. The foil we check bite accuracy with is approx 40mu thick, too.

Well that certainly takes the description of BAGGY PANTS to a new level in skirts - BAGGY SKIRT.
"Kilt-On" -or- as the case may be "Skirt-On" !
WHY ?
Isn't wearing a kilt enough?
Well a skirt will do in a pinch!
Make mine short and don't you dare think of pinching there !

Your search history must make some fascinating reading.
Some of the stuff you post illustrations of, wow.
I reckon that I would only find by plain accident.

When you click on that LINK --- Do you browse down the page for similar skirted items from the world down under.
It sure can't be boring in the Outback with that kind of variety !

Before embracing the concept of wearing skirts I had no idea just how much I used my pockets!!!!!!
Thankfully I've come across at least one skirt with them (wasn't even looking) but will definitely be on the look out for more :wink:

Sorry still not fully brave enough to show my face when skirted (kilted yes, skirted no :roll: )or my company logo, one day.......

Nice skirt Epicene!! The pockets seem to be deep enough to carry a wallet.
Is it real leather?
Cheers

The front is flat - left side view of the left pocket - no left side zip - so is this a pull on skirt with elastic waist band or a center seam rear zip ?

Hem length breaks mid thigh 16 ? 17 ? 18 inches ?
In that first photo the hem has a hint of lace edging - or - is that a slip ?
Or maybe the skirt is lined ?

And of course ta-da where did you get it ? EBay ? Amazon ? ? ? ?
"Kilt-On" -or- as the case may be "Skirt-On" !
WHY ?

My how what sharp little eyes you have lol.

It has a rear zip (if you look closely at my butt but not too closely, lol you can just make it out on the side picture of the skirt).
Off hand I have no idea of the length (currently at work and it's not really convenient to wear skirts around helicopter's, lol).
I really really really need to start vetting my pictures more, this is the second I know of where I've 'slipped' up and revealed that I tend to slip on a slip 😳, lol.
Finally, it was from Primark.

Hope I've been helpful.😉

Looks like good pockets, unusual on a dressy skirt like that. Does the hem limit your stride at all?

The term vegan leather amuses me. Sounds better than PU leather (polyurethane).

No the hem's okay and is actually quite 'stretchy' as you can see from the last picture with my hands in both pockets.

I remember a comedy sketch about how vegans (or perhaps it was vegetarians) try to make tofu (and other things) taste like meat, but no one tries to make meat taste like tofu...

Now we have plenty of fabrics and plastics made to look like leather, but no one tries to make leather look like anything else.
