I love skirts on men, especially when it's done ethnically.

I've never worn one myself, but why not?

I don't think its weird...So what if its more accustomed for girls to wear skirts...its still fabric, covering the body like any other article of clothing

I guess to each his own, but for me i have to draw a line somewhere.....

If i saw a guy in skirt id think he looked like an idiot who is solely out to attract attention to himself

besides, it looks very unflattering on a guy. its true the lines between men and women are constantly getting more blurred and hard to define, but u do have to stop somewhere.....whats next. men in heels?

Oh My God- I absolutely LOVE a man in a skirt. Did anyone see the exhibit at the Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC? A whole exhibit dedicated to men in skirts and a book to go along! Gaultier's been showing skirts on men since the 80's. I had friends who wore them out to Danceteria, pyramid, etc. Very Punk@! Very cool!

Has anyone checked out utilkilts.com

most of these guys are NOT gay. Gay or Straight, I think it's sooooo hot. Any man with enough balls to walk around with them hanging out has got to have it going on...if you know what I mean!

Did I mention that I love men in skirts?!??!

trend or not-it's hot!

I think you need hips to look good in a skirt.

My friends and I used to joke that I have a kilt fetish I spent a week last summer learning bagpipes so I'm used to boys in "skirts". I think they're great. I think there was an article on it in some magazine recently...maybe Elle Girl? But anyway, I think boys look good in them. And I also don't think you need to have hips to look good in them. Like when boys rock girls pants. Ohhh I wish I could find a boy in a skirt. I hope it catches on!

Then again, I also have a crush on Eddie Izzard (transvestite) and Brini Maxwell (dragqueen)... When I met Eddie he was wearing an amazing polkadot skirt with stilleto black boots. He looked fab! *swoons*

Yet,there are some people who still don't realize men, of even the most macho, have been wearing skirts for ages. And lets not forget vestments and robes which is where skirts got there variations from. Only society has decided for us all,that we aren't allowed to wear a certain something and frankly those rules are never to be followed,imo.

If women can wear what is considered our trouser suits and manshirts,I say,who are you to say we can't wear what is percieved for women?

"Soley to attract attention"?? No,that's not my style at all,I beg to differ. Skirts soften the male exterior;make men appear more romantic and elegant. Often times,making one appear more discreet--even subtle. Of course,it always depends on the shape and the cutting involved--narrowly-cut,it never makes men look too girly.

It's fine with me, I think that as long as the guy wearing the skirt is comfortable with it then go for it! whatever a person chooses to wear is a personal desison so just wear whatever you feel comfortable with
