    I feel like, if done right, in a sort of kiltish way, it can look good. But I feel like the runway looks on this page are just trying way too hard.

    Dries Van Noten/SS05 (horrible collection on runway, but beautiful pieces in the shop..one of my personal faves).

    ^ Thanks for posting.

    Not sure about the style though... Reminds me of a jacket thrown over and old fashioned night shirt.

    ok not exactly a skirt, but i thought this was interesting as an idea...

    like a man's version of the woman's culottes
    sort of hybrid skirt-trousers

    ^ I wouldn't say culottes, I'd say modified harem pants ... but they do give a skirt-like effect from a certain angle.

    Yeah, like a drop-crotch harem pants. To be culottes, I would think the inseam would have to be higher, and still not sure about the closed center... It is different

    i mean to say they are like culottes in the sense that they are hybrid skirt-trousers
    not actually woman's culottes
    the construction is different for those

    with the crotch so low it makes it look as if it is a skirt
    but i agree, they are pretty much harem pants

    at first i thought these were long shirts worn underneath a shorter shirt, but you can see with it paired with shorter shirts that are sheer, you can see it really is a skirt as it stops at the waist

    Still have yet to see one that really fits my style or that I would be comfortable wearing, but maybe that means I am just not a skirt kind of guy. Gotta give them props for keep trying and they probably will eventually find one that works

    interesting pictures.

    Thinkig aubout pictures showing men wearing (modern) kilts or skirts I searched at lookbook and didn't find even one outfit.
    When I read at the forum there I found that for many members it seems really to be a "no-go", which might be caused by the rare appearance in public life.

    ^ Granted I live in a fairly conservative area, but I think in my entire life (lengthy by tFS standards :p), I have only ever seen two men in skirts, both of which were those Utilikilts I think they're called.
