No such thing as a masculine skirt unless your Scottish
I have to differ with you. Have you ever seen a greek wearing a fustanella, the national outfit. Do a search on Youtube, most older ladies would not wear anything that short, and check out the pleats!
The Irish men also where kilts, other countries you would find men wearing skirts are:
Japan, China, Balkan, Africa, India, Sri Lanka, Madagascar, any eastern desert cuntry the men wear a dress like outfit.
Then there are also many religions such as Catholics, Episcapals, Wiccas. In the Pacific some of the methodist churches require the men to wear Lava Lavas on the holy day.
The first kilts were more like a towel that was wraped around the waist, the army would then use it as a blanket or bedding at night. They also realized the kilt made it easier and faster to answer the call of the toilet. They soon realized that if they don't wear undershorts it was even faster to answer the call, which ment more time to fight!
Yes Rich99, I agree. About 50 years back at least 1/3 of earth´s masculine population daily wore some kind of skirts, in countries you mentioned. In India I observed that many people - women also - started wearing blue jeans - horrible to me! Many boys and men stopped wearing lungi or dhoty (both kind of skirts). And even ladies shifted to jeans instead of their beautiful saries - and that in a hot and moist tropical climate!
Whatever. I think it looks ridiculous but hey
If you were a doctor you wouldn't know enough to treat anyone for anything. You're like a mouse born in a grain bin, and you "think" the whole world looks exactly like that grain bin. Review National Geographic Magazine, 1888 to 2013. Men are wearing WAY MANY MORE skirts besides kilts. And the poor things are FLAT (boring) across the front---major fail.
Yeah well in America where I live "masculine skirt" is an oximoron.
No Overpower I think men in skirts look ridiculous and I am entitled to think like that without some smug tranny patronising me. Got a problem fck off.
I wear skirts all the time and am enjoying them as well any dark colors but i would also think about light brown fawn blue or green but not one with a pattern or pink i would leave that to the ladies.
I'm not sure anyone can make a skirt completely masculine, at least in the current culture.<br />
But to make a skirt seem less feminine, I suppose men should wear the same colors and fabrics as any men's pants they'd wear -- black, navy, brown, khaki, olive, camouflage, denim, and so forth.<br />
Of course, not all men *want* their skirts to look masculine, and that's fine. It just wasn't the question.
Look on the Rosalind Woods site, she has some nice designs for men
I just looked at Rosalind Woods site, lots of nice clothes, but why are the models females and not sissy males?
You're equating inhibition and fear of self expression with masculinity. Not remotely correct.
Just like real girls, and women i say Pink&Purple that's my favorite color helps me look feminine.
Anything they want, tho I might advise against the pinks and purples.
I have a pink and purple ra ra skirt
I prefer various shades of pink, and lavender is second place.
Colors are not really important to me, the feeling of freedom around your legs is fabulous!<br />
I prefere long black silk skirts.<br />
But I also have long skirts with patterns, but not with flowers or something like that.<br />
My newest skirt is long(till almost the floor) ,golden-brown with many fine pleats(called Plissee)
If one must, perhaps a dark chalk green.
any damn color they want hot pink neon colors purple blue black who gives a **** as i wear em all
Scott has a custom made Scottish Kilt that he has worn on many occasions to Celtic and Scottish events. Complete with Sporan, Skein dubh and leather coat. The kilt is of his clan tartan.
Pity the ethnic types with limited comprehension, so here it is! If the kilt had never existed, would he go invent it? Absolutely not, because anything not already established as a tradition has to be forbidden on the basis that "change is a threat." Men can wear as many types of skirts as women, and I mean men presenting as men, not silly female impersonators who poison the wells of equality for the rest of us.
Pink, and fuchsia
My favorite colors.
Whatever looks good on them. Personally I have a red skirt and a white one. I want to get a green one since that is my favorite color. I like pink for tops but a skirt? A black one too is a basic essential. Not too keen on browns, yellows or puples. A dark blue one would be nice too.
hello, 5musicbox5 <br />
tartan...looks good on scots guy... and then you call them "kilts"<br />
respecting the kilt, from robbie
I like blues and browns for casual wear and red or white for a classy look.
when I fantasize about it it seems to always be white long tight satin skirt or wedding dress
Pink zebra print!!
black, you should wear whatever colors you like though
Stop sex typing colors. That BS traces to the Puritans in 16th and 17th century England who believed colors besides black, brown and gray were "of the devil." Late in the 18th century, the French Revolution de4alt another mortal blow to color on men, the by the 1840s men lost nearly everything colorful, due to the Industrial Revolution. Men wore black and brown colors to factory work, so that smudges and stains wouldn't be so obvious. Those are social forces---not sexual biology. Brilliant colors are for everyone not only the style selfish female typified by the likes of Bernadine Morris of the New York Times.
It depends on the occasion. If it is for work in an office, proper colors would be the traditional suit colors like black, navy blue, grey, pinstripe or plaid. If it is casual, then different color denims or cotton khaki, tan or navy blue would be fun.<br />
I find that long denim skirts and boots are much more comfortable than a pair of jeans. And a button-front skirt makes it hard for anyone to mistake my skirt for a pair of jeans.
I tried on a "Cargo Mini Skirt" and haven't looked back! Positively the most comfortable piece of clothing a guy can wear. No crotch seams makes more sense for males than females and the freedom of movement with a short skirt is fantastic! <br />
A Cargo Skirt has lots of pockets (more than shorts), comes in plain colors and has belt loops. All in all perfect and they look better on guys than shorts!<br />
It's just clothing and men have worn skirts far longer than women throughout time so it's no big deal. The people who have a problem with men in skirts tend to be sexually insecure and homophobic somehow thinking a skirt will make them gay thus they are afraid! How narrow minded can one get!<br />
Obviously worn with undies because men have the exact same issues women have with an inadvertent flash now and then but if covered so what! <br />
Men's gym shorts are 12" long and that is the length of the average mini skirt and some mens running shorts are 10" long and that is micro mini length.. length is not an issue but the shorter it is the better the mobility and coolness on a hot day. A large part of the time in summer a skirt will make more sense for anyone!<br />
Still don't think guys can rock skirts? See these guys in skirts and note they still look like men just as women in pants still look like women (obviously NOT cross dressing looking like women): <br />
cross dressing? Though I wear my skirts and long stockings since many years, I had several beautiful love relationships with women - I must say, very free women! They did not look after my "feminine" (?) attire but after ME.
Personally I tend to wear denim of any leangth, If I keep it above the knee in leangth not many people notice that it is not shorts. On the hot sunny days a sarong is wonderfull. Most Pacific countries men wear them and they are similar to the kikois worn by African males.<br />
Today I had a blue nylon mini skirt on, and GF says only one second glance I recieved.
