sarongs are absolutely sexy on men

but sarongs are not skirts, not at all
so we are going off topic

I love a beautifully cut skirt on a handsome man. It's got to be mid-long though, other lengths just look silly I think. The guy in post 497 really pulls it off (but that cap looks disgusting), and of course Marc Jacobs does too.
This thread started in 2003, I personally have never spotted a man in skirt on the street. Granted, I don't live in a very fashion forward city, but...

I saw a video earlier this week or last week about trying to make skirts more fashionable for men. Whether you love or loathe the idea of men in skirts, you have to be at least somewhat convinced how skirts for men have been perfectly acceptable... except in modern times. This alone makes you wonder why skirts for men aren't considered more acceptable in this day and age than in the past. Part of me believes that social perception is mostly to blame as to why more males aren't wearing skirts. Either that, or skirts are somehow mutually exclusive to femmes.

I still would mostly stick to long skirts if I were to wear one. Or considering my usual wardrobe when out and about, long jean skirts would be what I would wear. I would need some skirts that are functional. So they'd have to have pockets and be durable. Something like a maxi skirt that lacks pockets may not be to my liking unless I carry around some sort of handbag or something with a pocketless skirt.

In my opinion, skirts are only for women.

Some days ago I found this report on a geran man wearing skirts just because his son wanted to do so....

I will say that only certain hommes can properly look great in a skirt. The real challenge is in trying to make skirts somehow stylish and appealing for males. What designer(s) or model(s) will make the best push towards making skirts for men reality, and can this actually materialize into something stylish for men whether casual (or even classy/formal)? I just think there are too many hurdles to clear for men's skirts to become reality as well as for them to be better accepted among males. Of course, it doesn't mean that trying is worthless...

That's a great picture in Post #518. Wonderful outfit on him.

As far as high-fashion goes, I've always thought Gaultier does it best, since men in skirts has been part of his repertoire since day one. But, lets show respect where respect is due.

Here's one of Yohji's recent offerings, from his FW13 collection. Get rid of the mustache, maybe the purple knit (weather permitting), and you can easily wear it, as is, on the street..courtesy of our friends at style.com

Even sexier, when worn on little, green martians

I agree and I think mid length looks great but shorter lengths work too and just like women it helps if you've got great legs
