New York fashion week

Skirts for men again. Quite wearable compared with most haute couture men's skirts. Follow the links for more.

Hi S.S.
That does look like a better offering, more believable, still dread the price.

Quite honestly, I did not see a single look in that mix that I would even consider wearing -- not even a one. Blah!

Even the comments weren't that encouraging!
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 can't imagine anyone wearing those clothes. But haute couture isn't about everyday wear; it's about originality, art, and people flaunting what expensive clothes they can afford.
Courage, conviction, nerve, verve, dash, panache, guts, nuts, balls, gall, élan, stones, whatever. Get some and get skirted.

I realize I am reacting as badly as some of the people who see me in a skirt, but this all looks "metro-sexual" to me and there's nothing there that interests me.....

Don't really like the looks with the skirts but it is good to see that the skirts are coming back at the fashion weeks. I've always loved the designer marc jacobs, he wears skirts and it always so good!

Spotted these recently, but I suspect they're not new.

Space age Skirted Tunics ?
The center apron neatly hides whether these are true skirts/tunic dresses.
Could possibly have a short shorts underneath the apron ?

Gots to be rather uncomfortable with the tight fitting chest/bust arm hole structure.

Strange the frilly detailing on the top of the boots - sort of expected sandals instead of the boots ???

Interesting to find out the time frame this was photographed - circa what ???

BUT hey YES I like the short hem line - just my cup of tea !
"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 !
