Suggestion: Look up Scrub skirts online. I like the ones with elastic waist bands. They are soft, wrinkle free, have nice pockets, and they are not expensive. I have them shortened at a dry cleaner who does alterations. They come in several colors.
As I wear skirts I forget I am wearing one, especially since I don’t have any reaction from other people in public places or on hiking trails.
Thanks for useful post. ...I must checkout skirt alteration prices....The last time I checked was in a small Business Market.....£20 for a shortening.
This price is a bit hot as I can usually buy a brand new unworn skirt in a charity shop for £5 ...there again I will pay up to £30 or £40 for a nice new
skirt in the sales in ladies outfitters...speaking of which....I do have the confidence to go into these shops as a "man in a skirt " and have a bit of banter
with the ladies ,as their husbands are not present.
The ladies do say that quite a few men come in to buy skirts for themselves
Perhaps they are allowed to wear a skirt at home under cover of darkness....I do think this is the first way to start waving the flag.
I got into a peculiar way of looking as some of my collection and thinking ;
" I would not be seen out in the wild in that " ......... but I never bother to wear the garment at home, to try and break it in.
I must admit that I do not dress in the same way that many of my friends here...... There again we as a group are never likely to be seen together.
Perhaps for a bit of sport I will join the local T.V. social group and try out some of my extreme fashions.
There are some who enjoy a good laugh , get into some serious drinking and talk motor cycles whilst wearing their grandmothers jewellery.
Perhaps if one could chat to a good accountant at one might be able to enjoy a business transaction .................................
to transfer the whole cost of a skirt collection to the expense account.....
I remember going to a wild party back in the swinging sixties where things got a bit out of hand......
The hostess took me up to her bedroom and fitted me out in a rig borrowed from her sixteen year old daughters wardrobe.
I remember doing a drag strip. .....
The hostess left the house before dawn to go naked bareback horse riding with her boyfriend into the sunrise, down on the beach.........weeladdie
