I hear what both, you and Barleymaker are saying.
One point I'd agree with you on is that the change will arise from the kids.
If boys, say 6 or so adopted skorts as schoolwear and were able to maintain it into the secondary years then maybe as young men, evolve into wearing skirts. In my time, it was a 3 piece suit for the disco on a Saturday night.
For my money, a much better scenario than seeing "kilts" as the entry level skirts for men.
I think "evolution" is likely the best word here, it will be a long, slow and probably painful process.
Choose whose thoughts and opinions you value, as for anyone else, learn not to give a damn.
Your motives belong to you and no one else.
