^No. Let's please stop giving those names to things now. Manbags, murses, meggings, etc. It's not clever.

especially since "pants" never became "wopants" ...
and since fashion history (see this thread) and various "non-occidental" culture (see this thread) have skirt for men - where i guess they have a different name, though.

i don't get why in english where every noun/word is neutral, something has now to be gendered ....

pretty weird.

but i guess that's low & cheap marketing ... like in boyfriend jeans etc. (a low & cheap system and vocabulary any blog is vehiculating ....)

Gender roles are bull****. Break the rules. Isn't that what fashion is all about anyway?

I admire men who wear skirts the right way. Really wish this would become as normal as jeans!

i've worn a kilt, a leather kilt, albeit for Halloween as an Axl Rose costume...black leather kilt, black leather Richmond biker jacket...killer look...of course it's not socially acceptable in any other context.

you'll have to imagine the full leather kilt ...as an aside, were it socially acceptable, i'd wear a kilt all the time. Most comfortable thing ever, especially thick wool kilts (i'm part Scottish, so maybe i can pull it off...?)

Pioneers of this trend are probably to be found in ... Wal-Mart !
