Looks very ordinary for me, being Givanche it probably cost a lot more than a fiveer off EBay, but I am sure something very similar could be bought pretty cheap.

Skirt? Could not see any skirt, lost in the shadows I suppose. I was put off by those zebra crossing imitations.

I think in this one the sense of balance is thrown off by the very long t-shirt and the chap's short legs. I suspect it would have been better to tuck the t-shirt into the skirt.

Looks OK to me. I like the length.

Much more approachable than the usual fashion house concoctions. Now we just need 100,000 more like him.
Courage, conviction, nerve, verve, dash, panache, guts, nuts, balls, gall, élan, stones, whatever. Get some and get skirted.

I concur with B&B; a rather ordinary skirt to bear the price tag of Givenchy.
As a matter of fact, the sun DOES shine out of my ...

Hi all,
I like that skirt and would wear it , depending on price?
However, if you are going to restrict yourselves to the "designer/manskirt", you will always pay a premium.
Face reality, the skirt is defined by who is wearing it, not who it was designed for.
I'd like to think that if I could actually afford such a garment I would not give it preference.
I'll always cross the "aisle", just for the sake of my own true choice.
Steve.

The skirt looks fine, Antoine. Hard for me to see that it is by Givenchy - it just looks like a black skirt.

I see that in your blog you said that when you posted that photo you had seen three men in skirts in a week. Then when you replied to a comment 11 days later, you had seen 4 in a week. Is this normal? Do you see men in skirts every week?
Keep on skirting,

The skirt reminds me of basketball shorts, but without the inseam of course. So I don't think the outfit would stand out all that much.
