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.

One balancing the other out and labels producing goods for consumers and markets markets that they think exists but in actuality are the wrong ones. How would one even go about measuring this mismatching of market to consumer? And yes, I find the pockets on my wumen's trousers woefully inadequate.


I wonder if there isn't some kind of famous marketing precedent where the presumptive market turned out to not be the actual market, not necessarily involving a gendered product but just anything. Well, I think it might be a good plot for a sci-fi film, at least.

That is a nice skirt - wow pockets you can put hands in - and worn well.

I think that there are a few products like that that were designed for a specific market and adopted outside of the demographic. SUV's, Chelsea tractors and other off-roaders that seem to have been adopted by moms to transport their offspring to and from schools that are nowhere near any off-road areas. Also trainers, designed for sportswear but now sported by just about anybody.

Others: Coca-cola as a cure for morphine addiction or a nerve tonic, Listerine as an antisceptic and floor cleaner, bubble wrap as wallpaper or greenhouse insulation, Viagra to lower blood pressure, 7up as a mood-stabiliser as it contained lithium, frisbees were pie containers and so on. I'm sure others can come up with more.
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.

I was pleasantly surprised to have roomy pockets in this khaki skirt I got a couple of years ago, from a family business that caters to the mennonite/homeschool demographic.

Most of my skirts has usable pockets that what I look for in a skirt, some come from Goodwill or other such shops and I have taken to buying them off Modestappreal.

Nice skirt. That would suit me if it came a couple of sizes larger. They call it a "uniform" skirt, which seems an odd idea for a homeschool demographic...

A "Roxy" brand micro skirt with pockets!
Seven pockets, including 2 good sized cargo pockets and a fob (handy for a spare AA battery :))

Sorry Ralph, but your last submitted pic has photo-montage written all over it. Frankly I cannot relate to that at all. On the other hand Denimini's last pic is nothing short of genuine and quite amusing with it.

I was wearing women's light weight stretch denim shorts. I was at a restaurant and my wallet fell out of my very small back pocket. I lost the cash, credit cards, insurance card, driver's license, pictures, etc. I had to stop payment on credit cards, stand in line at the DMV, get new insurance cards, etc.

I found a better way to carry my pocket stuff. I found an olive drab military looking shoulder bag with two pockets with velcro flaps, a zipper pouch, and a zipper compartment ample for my wallet, hanky, hand sanitizer, check book, and other incidentals. It looks manly and I have had two negative comments. A lady asked me if it was my purse. I replied that it was and it goes with my panties. That stopped it. Another one was a guy in an organization we belong to. He has since moved out of state, so I don't expect anything more from him. All of the other comments from men and women have been positive. One comment complimented me and said I must have a high I.Q. Others thought it was "smart", "good idea," etc. In the several years since I started carrying it I may have had eight to ten remarks.

The closest to having a problem was after being pulled over by a highway patrolman who wanted to see my driver's license. I told him I didn't have any weapons and was sure to open it directly in front of him and didn't make any fast movements.

I have a snap hook to attach it to a shopping cart to prevent theft.

I was long reluctant to carry a bag as well, but so many skirts had no usable pockets that I had to. I bought two, "messanger bags," one brown and one black, and negative reactions have been zero. In fact, it's amazing how many other men I see carrying bags now. I guess they were so unobtrusive before.
