Men in skirts and dresses in our culture...

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.

I have discussed with my wife about not enough women are wearing dresses and skirts. I bought some dresses and skirts for her and she began buying and wearing skirts, dresses, and accessories more often. She is very good looking and I like to shop for her. She has way too many of a lot of things because I get carried away. "Good Looking" is not adequate enough to describe her, she is beautiful and has a beautiful attitude.

Now I am wearing skirts, my wife starts to wear dresses again. That is a win/win situation.

In our wardrobe there is a pile of leggings we both use . :kiltdance:
Be proud to wear a skirt or dress they are just clothes. Yes , they are for men too :mrgreen:

Sounds like a great arrangement to me!
Courage, conviction, nerve, verve, dash, panache, guts, nuts, balls, gall, élan, stones, whatever. Get some and get skirted.

The Star Trek uniform tunics were called Skants - Ebay LINK:

Other than that the tunics could have been standard roman prison garb.
"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 !

There's an episode of Next Generation where Riker and crew end up on a planet controlled by women. The men have to wear iridescent outfits displaying their chests. The women have knitted sleeveless tops with massive shoulders, ankle length skirts in a heavyweight cloth and thick-soled knee-length black boots reminiscent of the Germans in WW2 movies. They were obviously intended to project a masculine air whilst wearing officially sanctioned female garb. Or was (a perception) that the men were not willing to wear skirts?

Personally, I just wanted to get an outfit like the women!

[I didn't quite get the description right. It's an episode called Angel One. Here's a picture from IMDb:

I believe that the Star Trek "skants" are just the right length to be called tunics. I can imagine wearing trousers under one of those as an option.

At on point you see Picard and Riker wearing trousers under one as a formal uniform for a special event.

That’s a different episode from the original series that I had forgotten about! Is it possible to get watch TNG online anywhere?

A terrific episode that also had one of the first interracial kisses on U.S. television. They were supposed to shoot two versions of that episode, one for the North (with kiss) and one for the South (without kiss) but apparently Shatner and Nichols deliberately ruined every take, eventually forcing NBC to broadcast only the one with the kiss.

Netflix Canada has Star Trek OS, TNG, Voyager, DS9 and Enterprise. I imagine other Netflix branches must have them too.

You could have a look at "Les Schtroumpfs" (The smurfs, comic) and especially the derived comic "Johan & Pirlouit"

I was watching "The Return of the King" last night and I noticed that in Aragorn's wedding scene, right near the end, Legolas is wearing a white tunic-length dress. The shot is very brief and shows Legolas behind and to one side of Arwen. I don't think that he is wearing leggings underneath. I tried to look for a picture but couldn't find a satisfactory one.
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.
