I like the emerald colour. I read the reviews and it is probably good that it is a bit loose - as an aid to walking.
I was reading the reviews straight from this site and for a while assumed the they were men writing them - until I saw the gender specified. Curious that they did specify gender in the reviews but there was not one male reviewer ............ yet (hint!)

A nice skirt for someone in the UK. Sadly postage inflates price too much for me.

Sadly most all are NOT MY SIZE damn !
The materials - the styles - the colors - the hem length - and so on and so forth -
could spend hours at this wishing website - - -
"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 !

Just saw this unisex dress on Ebay. It looks a little oversized to me.

Looks overpriced as well for such a plain style of dress. Names mean nothing to me.
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.

Starting price was $75 - 5 bids later sold for $91 - 3 bidders competing
Using the same LINK a new similar item is being offered

Probably the word unisex doubles the price, but it still wouldn't be cheap at half the price.

Just arrived, very comfy. Pockets are, very unfortunately, tiny, I can’t even put my hands in them, but they’re probably fine for keys or something.

It resembles a Macabi skirt, but without the high price.

Seems cheap if it is genuine leather ...... and you like it short. Has belt loops and pockets.
Looks like a male model?

When first looking at the item - it looks like short shorts really short shorts but then the
absence of the bifurcated crotch seaming begins to reveal the true nature of the garment.
Right hand fly closing and slanted front pockets - back ones not useful for more than
cosmetic application - you are wearing a skirt what do you need pockets for ?

Egads at 12" it would be like wearing an oversized cumber bun.
Only saving feature is the tautness of the hem line keeping the gates of hell decently closed (ah er maybe) !

My preference would be an "A" line skaters skirt with at least a 16 " hem length.
Lets have some air moving down derriere - none of this cooped up compression stuff !

The measurements presuming the waist being actually south of the navel.
At the navel is cumber bun territory !
"Kilt-On" -or- as the case may be "Skirt-On" !
WHY ?

pants origins?

Post by denimini » Fri Sep 20, 2019 11:40 am

Two item on eBay, both new with tags; one mini skirt and one pants, same brand name.
I have always been suspicious about those curved or V'd seams on a skirt. Why not make a straight seem.

The reason, I believe, is simple: it looks like a skirt the wearer might have made themselves out of an old pair of jeans/trousers. Which is, understandably, cool in certain circles.
