i studied kyudo (japanese archery) while i lived in japan and the required uniform was a hakama 'skirt' - which i think the dior man-skirts were based on. interestingly - they are actually split at the legs, but the pleats line up in such a way that you can hardly tell.

i was surprised to see them on the runway considering i have the genuine article in my own closet... and it only cost me 10000 yen!

don't think i'll be wearing it out any time soon, though.

Whoever said that guys' skirts will be a "big trend" can't possibly be serious. I can see no average style-savvy western guy wearing these. It's one thing to do a track jacket under a blazer- that just looks strange sometimes to the bystander, but I can't imagine anyone but trend-whores wearing these in public. Kilts, particularly utitlity kilts, were remotely on the radar amongst the indie crowd last year but even then you'd only see the most hardcore scenesters wearing them and it faded real quick.

Disturbing? Please explain yourself....

As for the second,I agree with Space. How can one find one more natural than the other when the styles are so ambient and different? What exactly is your definition of 'natural'? What society has concocted or what truly feels right on a guy?

People are so quick to jump to the "gross" comments without ever really seeing it in real life and how such things are worn. And frankly,my dears,you can't rely on catwalks to give you an impression of a style all the time.

Never say never....

I think it's kinda cute hehe. Not short skirts of course. But that rugged masculine look really doesn't look all that bad.

it is very much so not me. But I think the right man can look good with a skirt over really tight jeans and a tee shirt. With that look I think shorter skirts would look better . I have yet to see a single skirt designed for men that looked like it could ever be worn by a man.Men's bodies are different, they really don't look GOOD in skirts, but that doesn't mean men should hault themselves from wearing them. Personally I like to see guys boddies under their clothes, most men's skirts seem to be hideing them.

i think teh arab 'thob's' and scottish kils look fine because theyre traditional wear.....but im not in favor of guys wearing leather skirts and mini wrap arounds...thats just not right
Same here. It's fine if it's part of a traditional garment. Otherwise...

I did a search for dishdasha, it's the long tunic, right?

I remember this African black guy who used to live in my old neighbourhood in Stockholm. I guess he probably worked for some international company/embassy? He'd usually wear the best suits, but once in a while you'd see him in a long white tunic (ended mid-calf) and slim white trousers with a little white cap; simply stunning!

I agree with MAX 100% , no straight guy would be caught dead in a skirt......I mean come on...

Also, Bert, this site is about fashion....not crossdressing
