Star Trek TNG fashions

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.

So everyone here should know by now I'm a BIG TNG fan...

And often I see some mighty cool looks and outfits on the series... I'd love to get my hands on some of these totally cool dresses, skirts, robes, etc....

"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 !

Those outfits look remarkably like idealised 17th century, strongly influenced by the American Colonial period. Patterns should be available...

Used Google to look for the pattern for the Star Trek TNG Men's skant. I have no connection with the eBay seller.

I'm all for it.
Punch up Google Images and search "skant" for a hundred pictures.

I've always liked the tunic and tights look. I would wear this with tights or leggings.

I'm not crazy about the skant. I think it looks like a big 80s tee shirt.

I rather like the long flowing flashy stuff that they put on from time to time..

I seem to remember a long ago thread about Joan of Arc and mediaeval clothing. The skant rather reminds me of the doublet and tunics from some of those illustrations.
At the time I had an idea for a waistcoat/skirt one piece combination made in velvet. However, other events overtook me and the plan was forgotten. Until now that is. The memory just came flooding back but I doubt that I will be in any position to resurrect the idea.

I'm shocked this wasn't the picture in the original post. That's always been the most notable costume from Star Trek TNG in my mind, and the uniform option I'd go with.

Yes, it must be an ancient episode by the look of the TV set but Moon obviously prefers the long garments and chose that pic, which is fair enough.
