I saw an image once of a young man in really baggy basketball athletic shorts and this sort of resembled a skirt. I think that is a good way to incorporate this trend without going all the way with it in a society where its not deemed appropriate. I for one, am all for men in skirts, if done well.

^^I think that's the thing about the whole men-in-skirts look: there's a very fine line between "done well" and "done not-so-well." I've either seen it either look really great or look really silly, with practically no gray area in between.

Comfort is a BIG part of fashion no matter what style(s) we are discussing. So if you don't feel comfortable wearing or trying a certain trend or style, you're not going to like it as much. That's why I said I would prefer long skirts or maxi skirts because those would be the ones I'd feel most comfortable in. I also would prefer denim skirts since most of my outings are mostly casual. If I could freely wear whatever I want, I'd surely would wear a long jean skirt different from all the average jeans I wear.

You shouldn't say that hommes shouldn't try the skirt look just because some can look completely awkward. That's like saying a trend shouldn't be tried by us regular folks only because one or two celebrities can wear it best. If nobody believed a male could wear a skirt and look and feel comfortable and stylish, then we wouldn't even bother trying to make it even remotely chic. I at least find some fashion value in a male sporting a skirt. I don't care even if it's an athletic skort that hommes try to make stylish- this CAN be made stylish on a male. There are still just too many different factors as to why this can't eventually made into something wearable and trendy for us males. And I think until we get over those factors, skirts for men isn't going to catch fire among all or most of us fashionable males.

In real life, I don't think I've ever seen it not be fine. Right out of the gate you know the guy's gonna have to have balls to even try it ... and that means it's gonna work.

I think that G-Dragon from Big Bang is someone who can wear skirt and look really awesome. If you don't know who G-Dragon is or what Big Bang is, well Big Bang is a South Korean music group and G-Dragon is the leader. He's quite well known as a fashionista.

These 2 pictures below are from Harper Bazaar's Korea August 2012




These last 3 were taken when he performed






all pictures are from oddnessweirdness.blogspot.com/

There's a time and place for men in skirts.

Obviously, certain countries and cultures wear skirts-- or an equivalent, like sarongs or kaftans, born out of practicality. Kilts are probably the most masculine versions of the skirts.

As for all the fashion versions... Yeah, I think as a creative statement within the context of fashion, they're fine and make a statement. I just don't care to make a statement with wearing something so impractical. Westwood and Gaultier's take on the classic kilt has always been beautiful-- even Hedi's floor-length kilt is graceful and gruffly beautiful, because they remain masculine to me, but it's still for a certain time and place, and not everyday wear. But that image of Bowie and company in those skirts look so foolish to me, because they just look like women's skirts. And as beautiful as Simon Nessman is, putting him in a mini or clingy sheath dress just looks fetishistic and nothing else. I mean, a man in a kilt, or a sarong (when he's somewhere in the Pacific) looks appropriate. But when he's in the streets of NYC and he's wearing a mini, or a clingy sheath dress/skirt is just foolish-looking and impractical. I would need to sit in a certain manner so my crotch isn't exposed; My bulge would be prominent all the time if I'm wearing a clingy skirt; a pencil skirt would limit my movement... Just so damn impractical. That's why women took to pants so quickly, because they wanted the practicality, why would men want to burden themselves with wearing a skirt, other than to make a statement? To each his own of course, but I'll pass.

had a funny chat with my dad about men in skirts throughout the years...
priest vestments, monk cassocks, ancient greek and roman tunics, japanese kimonos...

he went to school in a seminary in Sicily so he's quite familiar with the concept...
they all wore the vestments and the big hat...
if i can find a pic to scan i will post it here...
:p

i personally wouldn't quite go for a guy who's wearing a skirt to be FASHIONABLE... but considering how many photos there are out there about it, it may be a trend, but i dont think the majority of guys would go for it, would they?

I really wish I could see more men embracing skirts in this day and age on a daily basis, over the pants or not... When done right, I find it very attractive. *Pencil skirts, or any kinf of tight skirt definitely aside.
