I like the plain black dresses; you can keep the prints and color blocks..toomuch like cheap golf shirts.
As a matter of fact, the sun DOES shine out of my ...

A Polo Shirt Dress with a very large button placket - looks best on a youthful body.
Solid colors Yes - No Hawaiian tropical prints. Generally these are light weight material
and with white or lighter colors careful of revealing underwear details aka VPL.
These could be classified as a "T" shirt with attached mini-skirt with the hem falling
mid thigh. Careful of doing the bend and reach exercises !
My Mr. Wolf what BIG BUTTONS you have there.
Not what I expected sort of out of proportion to the garment as a whole.
"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 !

I like it and it's something that I could wear - simple, block colour and dark. I would like the sleeves shorter though and if I had one I would shorten them. Very good. :)

When will photographers learn that black clothes need special lighting?
Presumably, since you posted these photos here, the models are wearing skirts, but ... how can you tell they are not wearing shorts?

Mrtn, I know that there's a large shadow in the centre of the lower part due to the forward extension of the leg but it seems obvious to me that in this photo it's a dress rather than incorporating a pair of shorts. The flow of the material is indicative of a dress and there's no central seam where the division between the "legs" would be. It's a dress, quite a plain one. Yes, in general the photographs could have been better by having a stationary pose, but they look more like dresses. Unusually, they seem eminently wearable!

All right, I'll have to take back what I said.
It was bright and sunny when I looked at the photos this morning, and I could distinguish no details on the screen. With artificial lighting this evening, my screen looks quite different and I can see that the men are wearing open garments. Not bad at all , but rather short for my taste (or my age!).

Edited

Deleted my original post, had my head where the moon don't shine. I like a few of these.

I like it, though I'd want small buttons and a much shorter real or decorative .... errrr ,,, button area.

I've actually thought of wearing leggings...and a "long, shirt-like garment" of long mini- or knee-length.

I liked the green one but it would need to be
longer for my frame and 'rotundness' ;) :lol: :lol:

Most of these strike me as the same slightly-too-short skirt with various tops and clunky shoes and socks.

But do like the jumper (#18) and the dress (#30) just for showing what a dress cut for a man might look like.

I've always been intrigued by the idea of a men's suit with a matching jumper instead of a vest and trousers.

The shortness of them doesn't worry me but I don't think I could go bare-legged in them even though I have very fair leg hair. Likely as not I'd wear thickish tights with them. Perhaps I agree about the buttons and would probably substitute smaller ones and a different design. One of the better collections overall.

Quite! Black on black with shadows - I couldn't make out any detail.
I only wear black if I am working on the car - especially repacking a CVJ.

I liked no.30 in green; I think my mature legs would look no worse than some there, but unfortunately the tunic style is not flattering to a pot belly.
