So today I had a 2.5 hour drive to a regional area to see some clients.

I choose my pencil skirt to wear while driving. Stopped for coffee and lunch on the way then in a park to check emails and addresses I had to go to. Thought about not changing into pants; thought hard actually. After all I feel confident in a skirt, it's second nature now. After all, I looked professional; as good as Mark does at work!

Realised my wife could get to hear about it if I didn't. So reluctantly I changed to pants. Completed the meetings then changed again before checking in to my motel where I was greeted by a woman who checked me in. Nothing said.

The centre of town is 2km away so walked into town, to the main shopping centre, bought Sushi and a bottle of wine, then went to Kmart and bought another mini skirt. Aging, nothing said. Walked back to the motel. Sat on the verandah outside my room, ate my meal, drank my wine.

I have reached the conclusion that nobody cares. As long as you own it, as long as you feel confident and bullet proof, nobody is going to question you.

In a way, it's almost an anti-climax! Sure, I was concerned that in a country town I might have been subjected to some comment. I guess over 150 people would have seen me close up. Women with kids, tradies with beards and tatts, single men and women. Plus another 100 plus drivers and passengers who drove past me. I was transparent to them all.

OMG! I hope I've not been misunderstood with my recent comments!

I'm actually thrilled that nobody seems to notice or comment. It's elating to feel so comfortable to go about my day without the thought of comment. I guess most of us were nervous when first stepping out in a skirt. I certainly was, not those nerves are disappearing and it's like normal. That's what's anticlimactic; that there is no reason to be nervous, just be considerate.

Dillion you like to confuse people . The most confusing thing with me is that I am always wearing my Vietnam Veterans cap. I get a lot of "thank you for your service"
accolades, Which I greatly appreciate. its funny because when they are halfway thru and they see my skirt they start to stutter and loose their train of thought.

So my Sport Kilt arrived and coincidentally my wife has been away most of the time since. So here's what has happened:

Have worn the kilt to several business functions and client meetings as well as going shopping and going about my daily business. Simply amazed at what a wonderful conversation starter it has been. Had to snap a guy down when he asked what i had on underneath; there were women in earshot. I asked him he would feel if someone asked his wife that question?

Immediate retraction and apology!

So many women had positive comments and asked what was the reason/ history. I have Scots heritage so that was easy; I followed on about it being cooler and more comfortable that trousers; that more men should wear skirts/ kilts and that I felt very comfortable in either. Universally they all agreed skirts were sensible clothing options for men. Even a plumber who said he couldn't wear one was surprised when I told him he could buy a working kilt with fluoro trimming.

This gave me the opportunity to promote this article in Gentlemen's Quarterly: https://www.gq.com/story/mens-skirts

This was reinforced by my comment I was part of a worldwide group of men all desiring and promoting this outcome. What truly amazed me was when they all agreed it made sense and they wouldn't object.

I think we're closer than we think guys! This is achievable.

Hi Jamesy,
Well done!
There's a Scot's word, "smeddum", an attribute which you seem to have inherited.
I will leave you to check it out.
More of the same will be the way forward for our cause.
Steve.
