A professor wearing dresses

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.

That is the way to go.

We should offer him a free membership to this forum. ;)

The navy blue dress in the final picture was a good look. I hope it catches on among his students.
Keep on skirting,

The cynic in me wants to suggest he only gets away with this due to tenure. I hope that's not the case.

Either way, it's good to see. More of a write up could have been nice, but in some ways just a couple pictures with captions keeps the message on target. Does anyone here have enough German fluency to tell if the captions were trying to suggest anything that was lost in translation? I think something is lacking with Google's translation of the last one.

As to the outfits, I'd actually like to see the rest of that first one. Is that a dress and jacket, just a dress, or what? It also looks like he gets his nails done, and goes fairly heavy on the jewellery. A couple interesting pics.

I'll second the free membership...

Impressive. And it's not just the dress, it's also hosiery and heels (in the fourth picture) along with the nails and jewelry. That gentleman certainly doesn't half-ass it. Here's another vote for membership!

That does look nice!

I'd like to see something like that pulled here stateside.

It does seem like this is catching on, little bits at a time.

Yeah it's nice and the dude wears it well.
However, Herr Professor may already be a member of the café. If not, he is almost certainly aware of our existence.

The professor was born in Norderstett, north of Hamburg and moved to Rostock. Rostock is in the former East-German part of the country. In general they are more open to unusual behavior. FKK, nude recreation as a movement, started in Germany early in the 20th century. I have been a lot in Germany and to me (Dutch) it is strange that the Germans are quite strict in their social behavior but also open about things related to the human body.
