I don't think it looks good even to the Dior models (Cole Mohr?).
I might be persuaded to wear a kilt but never a skirt.

Men In Skirts and the renaissance of the English Dandy

As for the clothes though let's not forget that London's mod/ernists in the early 60's were the essence of the English Dandy. Not 100% sure but I think that men wearing eyeliner was unique..doesn't really get more shocking, (and remember this was during post war austerity when men who wore pink were considered to be what was known over here as Iron's therefore were fair game for smashing up), excuse the London vernacular but for me it adds to the flavour.

London's modernists changed the face of gender, (both boys and girls), with the clothes they wore and the way they wore them in a way that it's hard for us to truly appreciate, (and I don't mean what's known as 'Mods' as they were a media invention), before that men dressed like their fathers and would NEVER have dared wear a colour like pink, (of course wearing skirts was out of the question even for modernist's !!)

I see quite a few men wearing skirts "Axel Rose style'' and they look really good and far from feminine. I guess it depends on the guy.

I think there are certain type of skirts than men should not think about for obvious reasons, the shape is all wrong.

^ He seems to be saying it was period vernacular (encouraging violence) for men who were considered effeminate.

Iron's
are Cockney Rhyming slang for Gay men so Fashionista-ta was right although it's still in use today, (as are many of the lesser known ones)

Gaultier's take on the men-in-skirts look..The long black one resembles the CdG one in my previous post: long, black, modelled after your traditional kilt, worn w/ black pants..The other posting on the black model, well, that I don't really think was designed for men..Just think Gaultier decided to show it on a male model for the photo..Regardless, thumbs up..Too bad firstview isn't much help w/ Gaultier anymore: the collection w/ the black skirt had his man-skirts as well, and in this particular collection, on runway, it looked more stylish than your typical runway shows, pour homme.

i too think it looks dashingly beautiful when the skirt is long and the man is cute...
i saw once a boy in a long denim skirt and his girlfriend had a pair of jeans, it was superb, he looked amazing.
