Are skirts the next men’s fashion trend?

Are skirts the next men’s fashion trend?
NY Post

In an era during which rules seem meant to be broken — and more and more people are calling for gender equality — it should surprise no one that the fashion world is the head cheerleader for change. Case in point: the Fall 2018 Menswear designers presenting a variety of skirts on their runways. ...


Here's a sample:

Not "cross dressing" or at all effeminate, but really really dorky looking. And the models are guys who would absolutely rock a conventional business suit.

If trousers are to be passé, how about reviving doublets and hose? :mrgreen:

I really don't think there is natural or innate gender to any style of clothing. I think we could go back in time and find both men and women wearing exactly the same sorts of things., just maybe not at the same time.

Today, women are culturally pushed to wear make up and have display clothing while men are a bit more subdued. However I think I could go back in time and find endless examples when it was the other way around.

However I have a gut feeling, it was probably men who most "dressed fancy" as some sort of connection to sexual displays.

Oh no, I'm not going back to wearing skirts. I haven't shaved my legs in years, and I'm not about to start doing that again!

I thought the thread title simply meant a sweetie on your arm.

Skirts are better in a hot climate than pants or shorts. A banana hammock is even better, but ... skirts ... the limits of fashion.

Because Amanda, my partner, is five months pregnant, she is wearing paisley mumus.

No one warned me about that.
