Bummer! I haven't seen any guys here in Hawaii wearing them, I would but my Hawaiian more fare wife would strenuously object !
Consider an alternative - the Sport Kilt - it fastens by Velcro and comes in wider range of sizing and make no mistake about a man wearing a tartan kilt.

I have several SportKilts with a length of 14-16 inches in my waist size all with the Velcro fastening.
YES these are from the other side of the aisle
The fabric while maybe a bit heavier than the polyester Hawaiian version it keeps the kilt (skirt) more or less unflappable.
What is worn beneath the savage beast is your option if wearing as beach attire
From time to time they offer free promotional shipping and if your order is large enough it is altogether free.
Another option is the Stillwater kilt LINK: https://store.stillwaterkilts.com/
Order the economy kilt less all the bells whistles accessories and custom tailor the length to your specs.
The reason you don't see much of guys wearing skirts in general is the main topic - theme of the SkirtCafe
and it is fashionably correct to wear those old long baggy pants (beach comers) - speedos now being so passé.
One must have a degree of intestinal fortitude to push the envelope of wearing the forbidden fruit which was formerly ours !
That and your marine comrades (and wife) probably wanting to get a rib at your choice of beach wear.
You probably are not sporting your gear at Camp Smith on the leeward side of Oahu but the Kaneohe MCS on the windward side
has some great uncrowded beaches to enjoy the freedom of the skirt.
About the sizing - need a tad more range in the waist - add a small Velcro patch to the waist to extend the size - beware may
open the portion where the wrap skirt meets showing an bit more attractive leg ! LOL !
Reading the reviews of the RipSkirt it appears that they are customer service orientated - suggest contacting them about
making even larger sizes and lengths in custom sizing - one size certainly does not fit all here !
