March 21, 2010 at 5:12 pm
when worn as the second and third guy… I just love them!
ohhh what men!!! these sure have got the guts;) I like the first one the most.. the snickers rock!
Nope, not working for me.
March 21, 2010 at 5:13 pm
this shits gettin weirder and weirder.
I'd wear the second one, just a bit higher above the knees with meggings. The first is too long IMO, and the third isn't really doing him much justice…
Great images though, as always, Scott.
March 21, 2010 at 5:14 pm
The second and thrid look, I can handle. The third guy looks awesome.The first one seems like a little bit too much is going on: the jumper, the socks, the shoes… know what I mean?
no. were not.
March 21, 2010 at 5:15 pm
The kilt is cool!In the first photo, it's not the skirt, but the bag that's making him look gay – or rather, the way he's holding the bag.I am loving the bronze shoes on mr Macho man.
My conclusion: skirts for men are cool. But coolest when it's menly-looking men.
March 21, 2010 at 5:16 pm
No way! Not yet!
March 21, 2010 at 5:17 pm
Looks grat. Hope, men will accept this for the future!
some guys can and some guys can't. these three absolutely can.
The old jumper
March 21, 2010 at 5:18 pm
At last ! I am so glad to see here men wearing skirts. I owe my respect to them.As for the size, it doesn't really matter as long as they don't forget their underwear ;-)

I like skirts for men, andI like the style of the man in the third photo.
I'm from Scotland and skirts for men have always been natural here – and it's very sexy. Especially the man in the Scot's Porridge Oats advert – Wonder if he's a "true Scotsman"… Wonder if these men are! Wonder if it's a term that will catch on everywhere now! Hope so ;)
knee caps are a no-no.
March 21, 2010 at 5:21 pm
guy no.2 needs to show a bit of knee with that kilt.
March 21, 2010 at 5:22 pm
Looking good! Not feminine, at all! Esp. like the last one :D
March 21, 2010 at 5:23 pm
Lovely skirts to lovely men…
Wow, these men really pull off the look. It's quite a difficult one, I say.
March 21, 2010 at 5:24 pm
hmn…I'm afraid I'm not.)))
March 21, 2010 at 5:25 pm
Even though these three men have managed to create great outfits with skirts, I still see this trend a little awkward-looking on males!
Wow! Men from all different walks of life wearing skirts. Very interesting!
Love the metallic monk straps!
March 21, 2010 at 5:26 pm
if you can judge a girl by her handbag and may circles do, then let's judge these men by their accessories. seems to be varied performances of male one aggressively, one more gingerly and another much less so. so the robe, kilt or skirt each communicate something different. as for fashion, i'm only digging the tattoo on the hand (which I would never do) and the golden shoes (which I find lovely) *the tall girl
not yet.. I think it's too wierd, too edgythei style is really great, though
March 21, 2010 at 5:27 pm
I think I'm not…
Yes! So cool. Third one is my favorite, are those jeans he has under them?
March 21, 2010 at 5:28 pm
Fantastic. More skirts for men, please.
I think they all look great! I was unsure about the whole skirt trend, but I think these men couldnt look more masculine!
i quite like the way the plaid "skirt" in the second pic falls. the way its not pleated is a nice touch. so effortless and doesn't draw attention to itself as it looks so in place. <3
March 21, 2010 at 5:29 pm
These gents all look absolutely badass. I especially love the shoes on gent #3 – they look like a couple of polished beetles, in the best possible way.
I really like the length of the second one, I also really like what he wore it with. I really like how he still looks very masculine with the skirt.
March 21, 2010 at 5:30 pm
Anne-Marie (10 Rooms)
no 1 – definite missno 2 – maybe, accompanied by many cocktailsno 3 – is he really serious? everything else looks fab
sorry, complete lack of sexy for a man in a skirt
We tried in the eighties, but alas it still is a look that only the fashionistas are brave enough to attempt …..
March 21, 2010 at 5:31 pm
Only at a Scottish car wash! Woot!
March 21, 2010 at 5:32 pm
Thank god! I love men in kilts.
March 21, 2010 at 5:33 pm
I love the last one; he's so BAMF-esque, yet wearing a skirt type thing.
no, i'm not.
March 21, 2010 at 5:34 pm
No length of SKIRT is right for a man.
March 21, 2010 at 5:35 pm
we are not
NOOOOOOOOOO!!!Although if I was to try this, I would do it with the badass look, like the 3rd guy
The change it's good, very cool .
Secondo me, this is going too far!
March 21, 2010 at 5:36 pm
ok so i'm a clothing traditionalist.. don't like men in skirts. sorry
Yes, please. I attended a boy's Catholic school and the girls at our sister school had these enviable kilts. They used to roll their jeans up under the hem line so that the nuns wouldn't catch them wearing trousers. The third photo reminds me of this trouser-skirt combo. The shoes wouldn't have gone over well w. the nuns either. But what nuns don't know about shoes . . .
Love the second guy. I'd like to see a pin in that kilt.
The first guy looks nun appropriate (not the shoes). I'd like to sit down and have a good chat w. him.
Are these all in the same city, I wonder?
yes we are :D!
oh, i looove kilts :)
The change it's good !Very cool .
It took us girls forever to get in trousers, so why shouldn't men wear skirts if they want too?
March 21, 2010 at 5:37 pm
never saw that…
March 21, 2010 at 5:38 pm
I love the 3rd guy – the length and the layering – the pants are a slim fit but not tights…chunkier shoes -vest – tie – and bag/cluth…
oh and tracks (eyebrow) so much, but not too much.
March 21, 2010 at 5:39 pm
wow.. the last one blew my mind
March 21, 2010 at 5:40 pm
Guys in skirts are hot!
March 21, 2010 at 5:42 pm
Evidently, we aren't.
middle one is gorgeous!
as with women's skirt lengths, mid calf is just not flattering and tends to look dowdy. the knee length is spot on (and, for men, tends to look best in a pleated kilt silhouette imo). i love a man that can rock a skirt because they usually have the right confident attitude to pull it off.
March 21, 2010 at 5:44 pm
Skirts on men can be totally hit or miss but when done right I think they are really awesome. For me the second guy in the tartan skirt completely nails it, he still look so masculine, such a great look on him!
March 21, 2010 at 5:46 pm
the manlier they get, the shorter they get.
Yes, we are ready. And yes, these are fabulous. I think the first young man has really gotten it right!
I'm definitely not ready!
March 21, 2010 at 5:48 pm
I love this post because my 2-year-old son is very into wearing his twin sister's skirts, and while it's probably a phase he'll outgrow, I don't agree with all the people who are constantly telling him skirts are exclusively for girls. The second guy here, in particular, looks quite masculine and sexy. It's true not everyone has the kind of job where they can show up looking like that, but nonetheless I don't want to impose gender-related rules on my kid!
I love the bad boy attitude of the two tough guys in combo with the skirts. Not sure about the bare ankles/leggings but they are growing on me. In my circles, we women SWOON over men in UtiliKilts. More Skirts On Men!
March 21, 2010 at 5:49 pm
I really like the second one!
i don't really know what to say…sounds interesting :)
without a doubt, yes! i think this is rather fantastic.
March 21, 2010 at 5:52 pm
Love the second guy!!
Glad to see that mid-calf length skirts make even skinny asian men look frumpy….. best avoided by all!
March 21, 2010 at 5:54 pm
I think the cut just below the knee seen in the second picture is just PERFECT.
No skirts at all
March 21, 2010 at 5:55 pm
Oh no! Please, a frock ("Gehrock") is so demode. Please, gentlemen, trousers do a good job, in the summer shorts are an option. But, I beg you, no skirts for men.
March 21, 2010 at 5:57 pm
I love that these men exude masculinity while wearing a skirt. The refined punk look of photo number two is my favourite.
We are not ready to discuss skirt lengths for men because men should not wear skirts.
The first skirt for men I found in anno domini 1999 in rip Jigsaw Menswear i London UK. It was an anthracite scotch skirt with large brown leather belt, very manly. I was so confused it took me a couple of years finally to admit that i actually liked it. It didn't change my theory that on models everything can look great and manly but on the other hand it challenged me to reconsider genderization of some fashion items.
March 21, 2010 at 5:58 pm
Absolutely, but then again, the photographs of these people that you take make them look extremely hot.
I think an almost capri length, cut right below the knee looks best.
March 21, 2010 at 6:01 pm
At the knee! And wear some good hose with it too. And learn from my mistakes, no plimsolls.
the first one looks a little like a grandma to me, but the last two are stunning.
March 21, 2010 at 6:02 pm
No we aren't.

March 21, 2010 at 6:03 pm
This is a tad difficult! Style is in the eye of the beholder – in other words, what I find stylish, in this case appropriate, may not be to the next person! Thus I say – what ever floats your boat!! 3 cheers for those who turn a blind eye to the norm!
I think that maxi skirt is too much.I prefer classic kilt lengths.
March 21, 2010 at 6:04 pm
#1 – too long#3 – too short#2 – just right.
March 21, 2010 at 6:06 pm
Having said that, the man in the second picture actually manages to make his kilt look masculine.
March 21, 2010 at 6:08 pm
yes, we are…:)
At the knee; just like the ladies
March 21, 2010 at 6:09 pm
I like the middle one, the proportions are just right.
I wish I could pull this ff
If not now, when? :) Personally I find skirts a bit oppressive so I'm not sure why men would want to wear them, but these guys are rocking them
March 21, 2010 at 6:10 pm
Brilliant. And here I was thinking you would never post about skirts.
March 21, 2010 at 6:11 pm
Love the third look.
March 21, 2010 at 6:14 pm
No, I'm not ready! Having a Scottish background, I understand the cultural significance of the kilt, but I think it looks a touch out of place outside of a traditional gathering. However, the second gentleman does manage to pull it off a bit somehow, perhaps by matching the tartan with the boots. While I believe in "to each his/her own", I think skirts on males is taking the androgynous angle a bit too far.
Hmmm… were the bottom two taken on St Patricks Day? I think knee length is most flattering, and masculine… if that's the right word to describe a man in a skirt. lol
March 21, 2010 at 6:15 pm
March 21, 2010 at 6:17 pm
it's a-ok as long as they have other redeeming qualities. like that gentleman's loafers!
March 21, 2010 at 6:18 pm
I don't think America is ready. The guy in the middle is HOT. It is a good look for him and the third man with the cool shoes.
Unless a man in question is Scottish, we have nothing to discuss ;)A big, fat n o.
March 21, 2010 at 6:19 pm
i'm not a big fan, because i think that can remind a cross-dresser or something like it… about the photos i only like the second one, perfect! the skirt fits well, and the proportion is ok… and the it matches naturally with his face, hair and tatoos.
Uuuuu! You had crossed the rubicon!
March 21, 2010 at 6:21 pm
COOOOL, THESE MEN LOOK BRILLIANTLY NOW!
particularly liking the skirt over leggings/trouser look, exciting to see a change in menswear at last.
none are acceptable.
The last phot has my vote, sans pants of course!!
March 21, 2010 at 6:22 pm
Ahhh, I think the guy in the middle picture got it right, not because its a kilt but purely because the other two are too camp/feminine and take away the masulinity of how i feel the look should be.
Picture 1: the length is too long and the bag on the arm isn't working
Picture 3: with the clutch bag and leggings and…
March 21, 2010 at 6:23 pm
I love how they all give off such bold attitudes too, in their stances. Or is it defiance at being photographed in "skirts"? Oh, so great!
The middle one actually looks hot with his kilt. Also, the last guy has excellent shoes.
March 21, 2010 at 6:25 pm
If the skirts are on men who look like blokes, as in the case of pictures two and three – absolutely. Number one, however, is a problem for me.
March 21, 2010 at 6:26 pm
to the knee length is the best! loving Mr. tough guy at the bottom with the metallic shoes too.
March 21, 2010 at 6:27 pm
I like them long, thank you very much :)
March 21, 2010 at 6:28 pm
2 and 3 pull it off. 1, not so much.in other words: around knee length is good, and the shoes should be a strong, balancing, masculine presence.
March 21, 2010 at 6:29 pm
I dare you to go to Scotland and complement a man on their "skirt"… actually there's a slightly scary but awesome Latin lecturer at St Andrews who routinely wears a day kilt you should ask him about the length he prefers his skirt. Anyway, I'm being pedantic. Conventionally I believe kilts are worn on the knee, but I love all these looks, especially the first.
Standard Kilt length [eg the 2nd and 3rd pics] is perfect.
the style crusader
March 21, 2010 at 6:31 pm
wow! this is such a great post!
they are all actually totally working it and love that they each have such different looks. you've definitely got to have the confidence to pull this off. as long as you can muster that up i don't think the length matters (as long as it's not bare legged and thigh skimming!!). xx
March 21, 2010 at 6:32 pm
no matter how many cigarettes you smoke, or black leather vests you wear, or tough guy glares you glare, your still a girlie boy. If it's ok with you it's ok with me but admit what it is.
March 21, 2010 at 6:33 pm
wow. love this guy. awesome pants, awesome skirt.
March 21, 2010 at 6:34 pm
March 21, 2010 at 6:35 pm
No. Just….no. At least, for myself, I am not ready at all. Though the guy in the middle pic could probably wear anything and he'd look good.
NO!!! NO!!! NO!!!!
March 21, 2010 at 6:36 pm
I am actually a fan of the first skirt lenght.
Skirt length definitely the third one,
styling the first two, not a big fan of the metallic shoes.
March 21, 2010 at 6:37 pm
top and middle pictures are win. bottom mans skirt is too short for me (what am I doing comparing men's skirt lengths? but saw no comments and had to post); like his ankle/wrist combo though
March 21, 2010 at 6:38 pm
i vote the last picture is the best length.
lekisskiss.blogspot.com <– Texas gal bloggin fashion from NYC!
March 21, 2010 at 6:39 pm
Absolutely love the second and third skirt, not so much the first. For me the whole outfit (and posture for that matter) of the first guy is too girly. Especially the way his bag is held around his arm. Love his face though, there is something smug and proud about it.
Length wise you could say I cleary prefer above-the-knee-skirts for men. :)
But to all three guys I just have to say: way too go!
The bald bearded man clearly pulled off the look perfectly. He both looks incredibly masculine and yet playful and relaxed. He is now my example of how a man wears a skirt.
March 21, 2010 at 6:40 pm
I actually think it's pretty cool… and while many people may be surprised to see it, it's really much more historical than men wearing pants. Pants have only been the norm since the middle ages. So we could just say that this is a return to the roots.. :)
March 21, 2010 at 6:42 pm
Yes please put in some rules quick before men start getting into miniskirts ;)
March 21, 2010 at 6:43 pm
i hope so!
I think it's fantastic. However, the last two images are not of "skirts", but quilts. There is a difference.
However, skirt or quilt, I think we are always ready to discuss hem lengths, male or female.
March 21, 2010 at 6:44 pm
the kilt always has and will do it for me.
March 21, 2010 at 6:45 pm
mini all the way! nothing provides such ventilation for hot and muggy NY summers
March 21, 2010 at 6:46 pm
This is o so wonderbubbles…
March 21, 2010 at 6:47 pm
this made me giggle
March 21, 2010 at 6:49 pm
personally, i don't like this for men. but, since it's a quite young trend i'm sure my kids will wear skirts and it will be the coolest thing ever while i drone on and on about tailored pants. then, when i hit my mid-life crisis i will run and buy a skirt (length #2) from abercrombie and fitch (by that time the trend will have trickled down) and pick them up from school. they'll be embarrassed and i will feel like i'm 24 again.

No.I couldn't have ANY type of discussion with the first fellow. Not with a straight face.
March 21, 2010 at 6:50 pm
This is honestly not something for the everyman. But I feel as though on certain occasions this sort of dress is appropriate,no pun intended!! A man could always use more options when getting dressed.
March 21, 2010 at 6:51 pm
Well in all honesty I think the Scottish had it right with their kilt length. The first one is too long..I don't like…. and the second one is not short enough. The third one is perfect minus the jeans under. If your going to wear a skirt just go all out and do it like the Scottish and wear nothing underneath.
March 21, 2010 at 6:53 pm
I'm not sure if I can get my head around it, only the precious guys at fashion technical college wore them and they usually were laughed at….
March 21, 2010 at 6:55 pm
oh well, first we get 100 women shots to 1 men's, and when we finally get men's shots they are wearing skirt!
March 21, 2010 at 6:56 pm
Sorry Not a fan. Its seems to be trendy rather than fashion taste. That being said, everyone has their opinion.
March 21, 2010 at 6:58 pm
Not my favourite look, but I think the man in the second photo does it best.
Something about the man in the first photo reminds me of Tavi from Style Rookie…
March 21, 2010 at 6:59 pm
It's too weird for me…not sexy at all…
I am sorry to say that I never really got the whole skirts for men thing, but looking at these pictures I really get it. It can be over the top and strange but the way these men have styled them it comes so naturally i don't even notice.
The Man from Amsterdam
I like the 2nd one
I think a skirt on a man needs to be worn with a certain attitude.
March 21, 2010 at 7:04 pm
Kilt = YES.Any other form of skirt = NO!A kilt on a man can look quite sexy.
March 21, 2010 at 7:06 pm
I think there is something utterly sexy about a man in a skirt! I dont know what it is, maybe its because it gives off a kind of 'im comfortable enough with my sexuality to wear this' kind of vibe. Well whatever it is, i love them.
March 21, 2010 at 7:10 pm
I like skirts for men, and I like the style of the man in the middle.
March 21, 2010 at 7:13 pm
OK, I don't like them. I feel like it's the last province of women and they are intruding. Also, the only men I've seen wearing them happen to be so scruffy, like with dreadlocks, that I can't take them seriously.
March 21, 2010 at 7:15 pm
It doesn't look that strange to me actually. Probably due to the lengths. Right below the knee is best for men =)
March 21, 2010 at 7:16 pm
The second guys outfit is pretty sick. But the skirt.. to each his own. Looks pretty good but personally I wouldn't rock it.
March 21, 2010 at 7:18 pm
Gah, not yet! This is way to… weird looking. I mean, the second guy rocks it well, but that's only because its a kilt. I dunno, it's way to, not even feminine, but odd. Like restricting, and old. So it's definitely to early to talk about lengths I guess.But, that's one heck of a Fair Isle sweater!! I love it.
March 21, 2010 at 7:30 pm
I think the men in the second and third photos are wearing the skirts best. Come on, it must be hard to look so bad ass wearing a skirt! The first guy, although I do love the sweater (Burberry Prorsum?!), has too much going on.
March 21, 2010 at 7:36 pm
I know fashion is about taking risk, but I don't think I'm ready for this yet. I really like the 2nd pic. That is the only skirt that I would approve. I don't know why, but the I think the only masculine man could wear skirt. These pic remind me of Maid of Honor.
My question is why do women wear pants ? They are so uncomfortable. The Kilts are great ! very athletic – I like to wear them as well !
March 21, 2010 at 7:38 pm
no. me no likey.
March 21, 2010 at 7:41 pm
only if its a kilt…then its good
March 21, 2010 at 7:42 pm
The third guy is so filled with tude, love it!
March 21, 2010 at 7:50 pm
that's so true: it seems like it's going to be freaky by the title of the post, but looking at the second and third guy especially it doesn't seem odd at all. Though I probably would giggle a little if I saw a man in a skirt walk down the street.
March 21, 2010 at 7:51 pm
The ideal length for a man-skirt: when he kneels down, the hem should just touch the ground. As in the kilt in picture 2. Fantastic!
March 21, 2010 at 7:52 pm
I guess if women can wear menswear it goes the same for men.
March 21, 2010 at 7:55 pm
1 outta 3 'aint bad!
March 21, 2010 at 8:00 pm
I am sorry but personnally I don't like it. I like my man in pants !!!
I V E S T I T I !
March 21, 2010 at 8:05 pm
When I cover the top half they look like women, something I don't quite like about it, but they wear it with confidence which is the main thing…
March 21, 2010 at 8:06 pm
I like the second one.
Not the first.
The third is weird.
March 21, 2010 at 8:07 pm
The men in the kilts look bad ass.
March 21, 2010 at 8:11 pm
to the knee …. not any longer
March 21, 2010 at 8:15 pm
wow!!! this looks so good!!!I love it.
March 21, 2010 at 8:18 pm
nope… im not ready for this "men" look……………
March 21, 2010 at 8:26 pm
uhhh, rather notbut if men insist… i would tolerate

March 21, 2010 at 8:29 pm
I knew there was something going on with skirts in menswear.h&m sells which means they expect the broader mass to be interested.
It's so ironic (in a good way) that those men can wear such a feminine item and still look 100% masculine
March 21, 2010 at 8:33 pm
March 21, 2010 at 8:38 pm
no im definitely not ready
March 21, 2010 at 8:39 pm
March 21, 2010 at 8:40 pm
I love their style but for me, it's not a good look, men in skirts. Sorry guys. It probably sounds unfair.
The Kilted Coiffeur
March 21, 2010 at 8:42 pm
Image #1 is really bad
Image #2 the kilt is too long, but the lace up boots work
Image #3 the length on the kilt is perfect, put image #2 boots on and you got a winner!
March 21, 2010 at 8:43 pm
Brave but they carry it off so well :)
March 21, 2010 at 8:44 pm
Not sold on it yet… I think someone has to come up with a genuinely masculine concept first. There is something emasculating about the first and the third looks… And maybe the only reason I'm not rejecting the second look is its traditional feel.
Maybe something more Grecian (long tunics/robes) or Romanesque (short gladiator style)?
March 21, 2010 at 8:47 pm
Love Look #2. It's the 'most likely to be picked up by straight men' for me.
March 21, 2010 at 8:51 pm
only the second one works and that's because it's a kilt. the first and third look ridiculous imo. the difference between those two is that the first will definitely get made fun of by some ignorant homophobe and the last will not because he looks like he can snap someone's neck with his bare hands despite wearing a skirt.
men's skirts only work if they're a kilt or a sarong (indian, southeast asian, or polynesian style).
March 21, 2010 at 8:52 pm
Oh WOW! And I thought only Scotts wore skirts! The sweater in the first pic is beautiful and the man in the second picture is carrying off the whole thing very well!!
March 21, 2010 at 8:58 pm
i think if men rte going to wear skirts ,its really important that they balance the look with a very masculine edge otherwise they end up looking like the first guy, he looks like a lesbian asian lady with fashion flare
March 21, 2010 at 9:04 pm
It seems that the most masculine of men are the ones attempting these new gender-blending styles. Is this because they are the only ones not afraid of having their sexuality questioned?
March 21, 2010 at 9:07 pm
Haha, strange. I was actually thinking earlier about how long it took for women wearing pants to be acceptable, and yet the same has not happened for men in skirts. Not sure they wear them as well as women wear pants, but I am always open for some boundary pushing when it comes to gender stereotypes.
March 21, 2010 at 9:08 pm
my internet wouldn't load your website all of a sudden and i think it was a sign…
but regardless of how i feel about this particular trend, this is all about proportions rather than length. the last man takes a feminine piece like a skirt and makes the look masculine. the pieces are tough but the fit is right. i also like the proportions on the first man and that bag is perfection.
March 21, 2010 at 9:13 pm
Women have been playing with the masculine/feminine thing for years; guess it's time men jumped on the bandwagon. I am surprised at how much I like these photos.
It works WITHOUT A PURSE. I think the purse/skirt combo just looks tranny.

They should take it shorter. Way shorter. Mini mini mini . . . That would be funny.
March 21, 2010 at 9:19 pm
You certainly need guts to pull it off, and I think that you need an absolutely impeccable eye and a skirt that's not too feminine (like the first one… I'm not in love with it, but I do like the second and third photos)
March 21, 2010 at 9:26 pm
I absolutely love this! The third guy is my favorite though.
Giddy up Grandma! The Movie
March 21, 2010 at 9:44 pm
The first guy looks like a young grandma!
the first guy looks like an old lady!!! please, the 2nd and 3rd can do better…
March 21, 2010 at 9:45 pm
fuck no – honestly, why is this a good look for a man. We're finally at an age where any cut of suit, pant, shirt, etc is acceptable so now we're suddenly bored with that – get a life, leave the skirts to women, let them have something for crap sake.
March 21, 2010 at 10:02 pm
"Are We Ready To Discuss Skirt Lengths For Men?" Only if you mean the length of skirt on a suit jacket.Sure, kilts can work in the proper setting, but the man-skirt (something Gaultier's been wheeling out sporadically – and unsuccessfully – the last 30 years) will only ever be worn by uber-fashion types who revel in being ridiculed.
March 21, 2010 at 10:04 pm
only on a scots man
March 21, 2010 at 10:08 pm
I simply LOVE'em all.Can't wait to wear one…
March 21, 2010 at 10:11 pm
I'm personally glad to see you posting photos of men in skirts. It's a style that's far too often prejudged and misjudged.
March 21, 2010 at 10:20 pm
Is the sweater of the first guy from Burberry Prorsum? I think I've seen it on Neiman Marcus.
I loved their skirts, they look really good
March 21, 2010 at 10:21 pm
nope..pushing it too far..
March 21, 2010 at 10:25 pm
I'm sorry but I really hope this dies very quickly before any more guys start wearing skirts! If its a scottish festival and you are a scot that is the ONLY reason to be caught dead with any kind of skirt on.

The length, of course, depends on the time of day and the beauty of the legs.I should have come to your site rather than watching c-span today.
March 21, 2010 at 10:31 pm
I think you like to push the envelope a tiny bit Sart! I'm not sure what other Aussie's think, but this gal just can't wrap her head around the man skirt – with the exceptions of a (true) Scot in a kilt or a sexy man wearing a sarong around a beach house.
March 21, 2010 at 10:32 pm
Love the third guy
March 21, 2010 at 10:45 pm
Wait. What? Kilts, I get, but … shin-length skirts, oversize bags, and metallic shoes? No man is that manly.
March 21, 2010 at 10:48 pm
Nope… This is not innovative or edgy… It's just ugly! It takes away all masculinity! Real men wear pants, end of disscussion!
March 21, 2010 at 10:57 pm
oh wow wow, i don't really get the issues of men wearing skirts but i think this style is kinda unique, yet feels a bit wrong at the same time ;)but the second man pulled the style really well. he's rad! gorgeous!
March 21, 2010 at 10:59 pm
American guys can NEVER pull of this look-unless maybe they are in the fashion industry, and even then…to much rides on the macho persona.
March 21, 2010 at 11:02 pm
This look is amazing and I wish more people would go for it. It's odd that here, skirts are decidedly feminine. It's really just a wrap of fabric and so many other cultures think of skirts as completely unisex.
Anyway, I love pretty much every detail of the three pictures and the shots are great. As for skirt length, above the knee is more kick-ass, longer is cuter and more childish.
March 21, 2010 at 11:03 pm
cool. I actually don't mind men in skirt. But you have to do it right. It's easy to look unflattering. I absolutely love the second look. That's a perfectly matched look. I love how the purple of his skirt matches with his boots.
March 21, 2010 at 11:10 pm
i would probably do a double-take if i saw them walking past in real life.. but in your pics, they look.. just normal? judging from most comments, a lot of people aren't ready – but to say there are set 'rules' for what women must wear (which seems to be basically anything nowadays anyway) and what men get to wear is getting old
never say never, especially in fashion
March 21, 2010 at 11:11 pm
this is just… wrong, you know.
I like the styling of the first guy.
March 21, 2010 at 11:15 pm
Only if I were a Scot. I'd go sans underwear, too, I think. If you're going for it, you might as well go for it.
March 21, 2010 at 11:21 pm
I often don't like this (probably just not used to it, like most of us) but that third guy does it for me. He really really pulled it off as far as I'm concerned. Perhaps it's that the pants underneath are so heavy that it is more reminiscent of a long coat. And the bare ankles help. I really love that outfit!
March 21, 2010 at 11:24 pm
The last 2 guys have it right; anything longer and it looks matronly. Tartan guy and bald guy are so hot, confident. Love this post.
March 21, 2010 at 11:25 pm
Still think this is too wanna be polemic! and ugly…can't forget ugly!
March 21, 2010 at 11:35 pm
the guy in the 2nd photo pulls it off well. where is he? in fact, where did you take all these pics?
its a nice glimpse into something i never see where I live (Toronto).
March 21, 2010 at 11:36 pm
I think there is a resounding No on all levels.
First guy looks like he stayed at his nan's and forgot to bring any clothes (except his shoes).
Second guy is the closest i'd get to accepting a guy in a skirt but i'm still not a fan.
Third guy .. well….I feel kinda sorry for him.. he just looks really confused (bald bearded biker / emo skinny jeans teenager .. what the???)
March 21, 2010 at 11:39 pm
BOLD! And I love that!
Those who dismiss skirts on men out of hand should examine their sexism, whether overt or latent.
March 21, 2010 at 11:46 pm
Gotta love the creepers! This second pic is the best tho :)
March 21, 2010 at 11:47 pm
so the second one is a kilt which is different and much manly-er
Perhaps its not the hem lenght, but the shape of the outline that matters. Photo number one is drowning in oversized everything. He needs to balance ONE oversized item with two that show off his lithe frame. A tight sarong like skirt would still be a skirt, but not drown him. Hats off to the other two, who wear it well. Certainly a good set of calves is an asset when men wear skirts. And I don't care if they look gay(what does that even mean, or matter?) or not, just that they look good; to respond to an earlier commenter.
March 21, 2010 at 11:49 pm
Kinda like high heels – what is the advantage to a man in wearing a skirt? They seem aimed at handicapping women.. and men don't like putting themselves at that disadvantage.
March 21, 2010 at 11:57 pm
I admire these guys' confidence because by the looks of the comments here, some of us are ready to talk about non-kilt skirts for men and some of us are not. I'm with the former. As long as a guy has the confidence and the style to pull off a skirt, I say go for it.
March 22, 2010 at 12:02 am
Number one is dressed like a senile grandmother.
March 22, 2010 at 12:04 am
love it!2nd guy does it best: not too short, not too long. just below the knee.
March 22, 2010 at 12:07 am
Oh, absolutely! Just to the knee is the best length methinks.. It's a tough one though – I've seen it done incredibly well and also disasterously. Perhaps that's why I've held off on committing to it for myself.. need to ensure that I can do it and fall in the former category.* jonathan, sydney
March 22, 2010 at 12:12 am
Super awesome, but I think it needs to stay somewhat masculine. I suppose it depends on the man… Guy's number two and three get my vote for sexy, but number one is a bit too feminine for my taste. Very cool, though.
March 22, 2010 at 12:14 am
Lava lava's are also traditional dress in the pacific for men and they look good, I don't see why not. 2nd guy really pulls it off I reckon!
March 22, 2010 at 12:20 am
Kilts and their ilk have always looked awesome. So many traditional type clothes are skirt-like. I've always thought the buddhist monks in their orange robes have looked really cool and robes are bordering on being a full on dress. Also in the same category all you have to do is watch Sanjuro to see the Toshiro Mifune make the kimono the most masculine piece of clothing in the world. As for length I'm digging the second and third. I think if the first guy went a little long, like down to his toes toga style, it would be cool too.
March 22, 2010 at 12:22 am
The first one is all around, just one of the worst looks/things i've ever seen. I'm not even really convinced that it's not a really ugly woman (they look so uncomfortable). The second however, made my jaw drop- in a great way. All good with kilts.
March 22, 2010 at 12:35 am
i don't really like this trend… i think the connection of 'women' and 'skirts' is just too strong for me
March 22, 2010 at 12:56 am
I'd rather look prettiest in a skirt than 'him' :P But that's just me being greedy
March 22, 2010 at 1:00 am
I wonder why it not a point of discussion before because clearly everyone should have their own opinion. I would go for just at he knee. No one will buy the cow if you're giving away the milk for free!
March 22, 2010 at 1:02 am
normally i don't like men in leggings but the 2nd guy can definitely get away with it. it's also my favourite.
personally i find men in jeans most attractive so i am not that ready.
but life without new/different things is boring, isn't it :)
March 22, 2010 at 1:12 am
I think if its worn over the knee it has to be done very carefully.
The man in photo number 2 is so ridiculously good looking and stylish. Where are all the rest of you men who dress like that? All my single friends are waiting for you to arrive at the party!
Hooray for men in skirts!

Number 3. Best.
March 22, 2010 at 1:26 am
self concious looking if you ask me.i mean, why ? whats the point ?
and the second guy is wearing a kilt which doesnt really count as a 'skirt' in my book.
March 22, 2010 at 1:29 am
The first guy looks like he was raiding grandma's closet–not good, just not good.
Fella #2 is dreamy! He's got it goin' on
Fella #3 looks a bit scary, like a villain in an Indiana Jones movie.
March 22, 2010 at 1:38 am
Its so interesting to read everyone's comments on this! Even people who don't like this style are pretty nice about it.
A woman I really respected told me once: "Unless its a gown, don't wear a skirt or dress longer than three inches below your knees." I feel that this rule applies to everyone, men and women! I think that is why most people are not enjoying gentleman #1 outfit, and I agree. I like #2 and #3 though!
March 22, 2010 at 1:45 am
The Second One is wearin a Kilt so that doesnt count…. though it looks amazing… its more cultural than fashionable in this particular case.. the other ones.. are two opposite kind of HOW TO WEAR A SKIRT… the first one is too granny-ish.. and sometimes i put it in a good way.. but this time… its not… this skirt is not as gorgeous as the third guy's skirt… whos wearing it perfectly…. the lenght the layers…. and you can tell hes a big guy….
and if men started this trend.. its time for us to discuss.. nt if we are ready to wear it… but..its time to discuss… when did we get so dull in fashion.. when we became so close minded about a thing that requires the opposite….
the last alexander mcqueen ( the armadillo shoes, the insect clothing) collection… is like the most incredible collection ever made by a stylist.. too bad he decided to die…
but only a few women would wear those things… and thats a shame… cuz its 2010.. and til now there is nothing different comparing to the 80's nothing rally new..
so its time for us to stop thinking like our parents… lets make a new atmosphere for us …. lets add a little fantasy in this life.. otherwise we aint gonna make this remarkable….
this about it people…..
and let the ones who are looking forward to bring us the weirdness, the new, the odd, and the gorgeous….well.. just let them be your fashion guide.. they are wearing it first.they are taking the risks…
and someday this is gonna be as ordinary as denim…..
and if you wear it only when its ordinary and accepted… ur not doing anything different at all…
most people are too late… when it comes to boldness…..
its a new dawn…. live it!
March 22, 2010 at 1:48 am
If the man in the middle can look that masculine wearing the skirt I say more power to him.
March 22, 2010 at 1:51 am
Second and third pictures are amazing, I personally consider that knee lenght is the perfect lenght for men… it's either that or something down to the ankles, if you go 3/4 or 4/5 down the shin you lose a certain masculine presence that is needed to pull off the skirt withouth looking funny.
March 22, 2010 at 1:57 am
Ok, really… who is the guy with the tattoos and the pea coat? He's one of the hottest guys I've ever seen in a kilt. Hot guys in kilts (not skirts) are totally sexy.
March 22, 2010 at 1:59 am
For comparison's sake: There was a picture you posted in mid-November 2009, titled "On the Street. . .Rue de Rivoli, Paris." Another guy in a skirt, very natural. I remember being quite taken with it at the time.
March 22, 2010 at 2:00 am
Seeing men in skirts makes me feel a little weird. Is viewing men in skirts a portal into the future?
March 22, 2010 at 2:07 am
suddenly i think that men are hot.
March 22, 2010 at 2:18 am
the kilt, sure. the other stuff? nope.
February 17, 2013 at 9:26 am
You say this because kilts are already part of your consciousness. Other versions you oppose because you don’t want anything new entering your mentality. Change frightens you. You are irrational.
March 22, 2010 at 2:23 am
I think Kilts rock and admire those who can pull it off. The man must have the right attitude. In this case #2 and #3 pull it off well. Probably because the lengths on each are within the bounds of traditional Kilts and they have that "f*ck with me if you dare" attitude. #1 is too long and feminine for me, which is just how I would look and why I don't wear one.
March 22, 2010 at 2:24 am
Kilts are so manly. Man number one is overdone.Man number two – perfect. I shouldn't, but I love that cigarette! Man number three needs to lose the tie and add colour up top, I think.
The kilt things are not exactly "skirts".
But the first one is very interesting. Especially since (although by that picture I can't really tell) it seems to be a hakama more than a skirt (a traditional dress for men in Japan). In which case it's definitely not a skirt because hakamas generally have a separation between the legs. Then again, maybe it's a hakama-inspired skirt. In any case, I like it.
March 22, 2010 at 2:31 am
"Are we ready to discuss skirt lengths for men?"
I don't know, my feeling is that it's probably a 'no' right now. But with these photos you are making a very strong case for it!
I have to say, if I ever met either of these gents in real life, I would be entirely fascinated by him!
March 22, 2010 at 2:41 am
Yes we are!
Yes we can!
Greetings for the skirt wearing Germany
March 22, 2010 at 2:43 am
I think that a knee length skirt on a man seems the most appropriate, mainly because it's quite similar to a kilt length.
Unfortunately, for conservative cities like my own Calgary, this look would take decades to trickle over.
Closet full of hopes and dreams
March 22, 2010 at 2:46 am
Wow, you are amazing at finding people that has IT and capture it. At first thought I would def say no! But after looking at these pictures. I guess the clothes doesn't make the man. The man CAN make the clothes. If he's got IT.
The homophobia on this thread is so tiresome.
March 22, 2010 at 2:50 am
Wow, when did the commenters on here get so conservative?
I'm not a huge fan of this look but I would never say that guys shouldn't look "girlie" or that they "can't" wear skirts. Especially when they pull it off with aplomb, as in #2 and #3. They seem like fascinating people, which is more than can be said of a lot of the subjects on this site….and a lot of the commenters.
March 22, 2010 at 2:53 am
Brilliant! I love all of them.
March 22, 2010 at 2:58 am
I like skirt on men! Of course u need to feel comfortable in it!I remember when Vin diesel wear a skirt at the EMA he was amazing!and this 3 boys are amazing too! The second one, I love the tartan!
March 22, 2010 at 3:02 am
As long as they're not wearing heels, I'm down.
March 22, 2010 at 3:10 am
Did someone actually use the word "meggings"? Man-leggings? Funny! The first photo looks like a high school dare but I do like a nice kilt…but not a dangling cigarette.
March 22, 2010 at 3:18 am
The question is rather: Are we ready to see skirts on men? Fashion is in my understanding the communication of society. To make it short: as long as the same work done by women is worth 1/3 less than men´s work, why should men wear the uniform of capitalistical spoken "less-value"? YSL made the suit wearable for women exactly then, when women started to "conquer" the men´s world. There is no value until now to do it the way around. That´s why in my view all the men-skirt-approaches stay on the level of let´s-try-how-the-surrounding-reacts" level. Only the kilt on the sec. pic. has history and looks well proportioned, because it has a cultural context.
March 22, 2010 at 3:29 am
Love the 3 of them, but would have dinner with the second one. the first one would have been still better with high legs male boots.
March 22, 2010 at 3:49 am
March 22, 2010 at 3:52 am
I Love it! next stop high heels for men !?!

March 22, 2010 at 3:54 am
Absolutely we are ready, well at least I am. For me the second and the third are perfect. The first should be either longer or shorter.
I think the third one just ROCKS. Beard, plus Kojak-hairstyle, pinkie ring, mens purse and a skirt. Whoa. He definitely is sure in his masculinity! AMAZING.

That looks ridiculous!!! Who came up with this idea?!
A great fashion novelty – that's for sure. I'm not too sure, tho, if it's gonna catch up on the streets, in everyday life. If you try to imagine your male friends and collegues wearing skirts, it somehow loses most of its charm.Very, very good photos, anyway, and hail to the courage of those guys :)Cheers,Katya
March 22, 2010 at 4:10 am
these men know how to wear the look!
March 22, 2010 at 4:18 am
not like,at all;(((
March 22, 2010 at 4:20 am
thanks for info…nice blog..
March 22, 2010 at 4:30 am
The first one is interesting, not a look I've really seen before. However, as one who wears the kilt it's my opinion that if you're not showing at least a bit of skin, preferably some knee, it just doesn't look right. Ditch the leggings and pull down the socks and then you've got style. I mean, if you're going to go to the trouble of wearing a skirt as a man, why be bashful about showing off a bit of leg!
March 22, 2010 at 4:33 am
Scotland notwithstanding, men in India and Sri Lanka, Cambodia even, wear traditional cloths in the form of "skirts" and the look works well with a button down shirt and "ethnic" slippers. Peter Beard always wore sarongs and looked really sexy and authentic. I endorse men who wear skirts of the aforementioned variety but gives the side eye to the Commes des Garcon militia who sucker folks into a ¥70,000- plus kilt: considering they only go up to an unmanly size "M" which would ultimately make one manorexic…however, I would suffer the indignity to squeeze into one of those Givenchy Fall 2010 man-skorts!
March 22, 2010 at 4:39 am
You almost forget the second one is wearing a skirt. Effortlessly put together and oozes masculinity. Love him, love the photo! We need more men like him in Sydney
March 22, 2010 at 4:40 am
I'M LOVING IT!
I WANT ONE NOW. HM WILL DESIGN SOME OF THEM FOR THIS SEASON!!
Yes! The second one is – ooooh.
March 22, 2010 at 4:47 am
these guys look so much more stylish and masculine than most men wearing pants. i dont see a problem at all.
March 22, 2010 at 4:52 am
Yes! Men in skirts look fantastic and sexy! More pictures of men in skirts please! (I am far too excited to discuss the length of the skirt after seeing this)
March 22, 2010 at 4:54 am
Yes we're ready! Women's clothes are so tactile and sensual on the body (when we want them to be), yet men have so few options. Men should not always have to wear trousers, and face it – shorts can make a grown man look like a grammar school boys/wannabe 80's playboy (a la James Spader). Men should be allowed to express themselves as much as women through the way they dress, the way they feel in their clothes, what parts of their body they show off, and how it effects their movements.
Compared to the skinny jeans I'm sick of seeing on men, a man in a skirt like the second two featured here are positively demure and yet defying the norm.
March 22, 2010 at 5:06 am
No thank you. Minus your Canon D5 I'm pretty certain you wouldn't even ask the question in the first place.
March 22, 2010 at 5:11 am
the bag in the first picture makes him look too feminine and the way he holds it as well.
the other two – lovable. especially the shoes of the third one. I'd wear them .
men in some parts of asia wear long skirts all the time. so I don't see what the fuss is all about. The first guy looks too much of a sissy to be considered a man wearing skirt. The jacket over his shoulders, the big ladies' bag–its more like drag.
The second guy looks awesome. The third guys doesn't quite get it.
March 22, 2010 at 5:13 am
March 22, 2010 at 5:14 am
I have to say:
this guy in the second picture… this is fantastic. It harmonizes so well in his complete outfit, that I have to admit (although I normally love men who dress quite masculine) he looks fabulous. But maybe this is also because it reminds of the scottish tradition to wear skirts, so this is not to alien to me.
On the other hand the two other guys… I am sorry but this looks more like Carnival to me.
March 22, 2010 at 5:22 am
I love knee-lenght skirts on men and women alike.
LOVE this post, thanks Scot. Fantastic to test the boundaries of taste and gender. These guys rock.
March 22, 2010 at 5:24 am
As short as possible.. so it becomes a belt.
I don't think we're ready !
March 22, 2010 at 5:30 am
Not feeling 1 or 3, but 2 is pretty spot on.I have to admit I'm not really down with skirts on guys, kilts I can deal with though. The only problem with kilts for me is that they are such a cultural specific that I think they can be very difficult to re-appropriate without justification.A kilt seems to work well as part of "punk" kinda look, otherwise if you're not wearing one as part of a Scottish ensemble, I find it very hard to justify.
LOVE the second guy!
March 22, 2010 at 5:34 am
who cares? they look great and clearly enjoy it. any judgmental comment is silly. the best thing for me is the jumper on 1st pic.
March 22, 2010 at 5:36 am
This is so funny! Men in shirts…we, girls, are gonna be complexed by them!
March 22, 2010 at 5:48 am
Why should we discuss about the length of mens skirts? Not every man has the same body. So everyone has to decide which length is ok for himself.
March 22, 2010 at 5:57 am
I like it very much!!! Men in skirts. Sexy!
March 22, 2010 at 6:12 am
No.1… not completely convinced, it's possibly the bagNo.2… Yes, brilliantNo.3… Big tick, best of the bunch, I think the beard and the shoes and the don't give a F attitude make it!
March 22, 2010 at 6:13 am
No way! Real men do not wear skirts, unless they are part of a traditional attire like the quilt, and you happen to be scotish or whatever, otherwise is plain queer no matter how you put it, sorry guys skirts are our privilege!
March 22, 2010 at 6:14 am
March 22, 2010 at 6:21 am
Nej, absolutely not.
March 22, 2010 at 6:25 am
Fine on sweaties and traditional clothing in hotter climes – anywhere else it's an affectation of the highest order.
March 22, 2010 at 6:35 am
Absoluement pas!But I'd love to read a discusssion on the increasingly feminine look of male fashion. Pale blouses in lightweight fabrics come to mind. Do you think we'll be seeing young men on the street wearing them this spring/summer?
March 22, 2010 at 6:47 am
this is never gonna happen. It hasn't happened since the introduction of skirts back in – what, 1500? So I think the probability of skirts ever becoming more than a device for sexually ambigious men to catch some attention is very little. Skirts are just not able to compliment the male silhouette. They are – as obvious as it sounds – made for woment.
March 22, 2010 at 6:51 am
real men should stick to their trousers!!
March 22, 2010 at 6:55 am
granny dress and bags, no.
March 22, 2010 at 6:59 am
the real nick
March 22, 2010 at 7:00 am
The second and third are cop outs. Tartan is not new, and the latter is more of a North Indian kurta / pyjama combo than a skirt.
[The first one seems to be par for the course for gay Japanese fashion hangers-on who want to get featured on The Sartorialist.]
March 22, 2010 at 7:05 am
Skirts for men have been done by designers a lot of times so far – and the have never been accepted. But they never looked so good before – the one's in the Givenchy collection for example.You can just look fabulous in them – the same goes for kilts!
And I don't really know why some many people still find it awkward to see men wear skirts. Hello – haven't we already seen it all?!And I find it pretty ridiculous that most people here who don't like it, post their opinions anonymously…
March 22, 2010 at 7:06 am
Not sure if I will ever be ready for this.
March 22, 2010 at 7:12 am
I like the haircut and glasses of the first guy, not the rest of his look. And the 2nd & 3rd guy look great in their skirts. Does anyone from the sartorialist ever comment back? Just curious.
March 22, 2010 at 7:13 am
reading all (well ok not every single one) the comments its interesting to see how differently people react to the looks and how everyone has another favorite
March 22, 2010 at 7:20 am
Kilts will always work; lower than the knee is where sarongs operate. Pleats are iffy.
Having said that, 1 is a Gok Wan-na-be, 2 is spot-on modern Scot, 3 is the most intriguing – I would've gone for trousers over jeans, perhaps, and the leather is a bit much. But the metallic footwear is solid style gold.
March 22, 2010 at 7:23 am
The second bloke – that's how it's done. A great update of the traditional Scottish look, it works really well.
I'm far too repressed to wear a skirt (these are all kilts, not skirts anyway) and I'm not Scottish so wouldn't wear a piece of their traditional clothing. An Englishman in a kilt? That's a fight in the making…
March 22, 2010 at 7:31 am
Cool! I wish the trend progresses fast.
March 22, 2010 at 7:57 am
SOMETIMES we shouldn't wear everything. Like skirts. It's for the ladies.
It's the same with wearing high heels.
March 22, 2010 at 8:00 am
Love the images , Scott . Men have always looked good in kilts but the first image shows a more romantic look for the fashion forward . The clutched bag is the faux pas
March 22, 2010 at 8:06 am
Intersting topic. The young man in the first picture can sort of get away with that length because being asian gives it a kimono vibe… otherwise I would say knee length, maybe just below the knee. I love the look on the second picture, he looks very masculine and comfortable in his skirt.
(Hm, seriously considering skirt… )
March 22, 2010 at 8:11 am
The second guy: so so sexy. He's got the badass look and doesn't lose ANY masculinity at all by wearing a kilt. And he's totally hot.
First and second: no way.
March 22, 2010 at 8:15 am
I agree: no bag. And I think you should have the guts to wear one without pans or jeans underneath.
Looking only at the body of the first guy, it could be someone's funky grandmother. Not working from a fashion point of view, though he looks like a really "simpatico" guy.
March 22, 2010 at 8:20 am
It’s interesting the choice of three very different photos: the waiflike Asian guy, wearing the granny style maxi skirt with the handbag and the other butch fashion forward guys (rocking the kilts as someone said, tattoos, beard, and tunnel piercings). Suddenly everyone has an opinion. And that must be because this subject is entwined with gender roles, not sexuality. Are men in skirts effeminate? Men in kilts are manly and culturally pinpointed as brave (“Go Commando!”) It’s not just a piece of fabric, it’s a social statement. But is it aesthetically pleasing or sexy, or just experimental?
March 22, 2010 at 8:33 am
As with the other gender, skirt length is entirely dependent on the shape of one's legs (a highly subjective exercise for most people), the other chosen garments for the ensemble as well as the particular occasion.
March 22, 2010 at 8:35 am
I just bought a purse at Nordstroms and the "salesman" said he carried purses too. sigh. No. NO! We are not ready to discuss skirts lenghts for men. Please, be creative in other ways.
March 22, 2010 at 8:41 am
No, we are not ready for that discussion yet. :)
March 22, 2010 at 8:46 am
Oh YES indeed. :)
March 22, 2010 at 8:50 am
HATE the first one – too 'look-at-me-aren't-I-trendy' , the second one is better and he looks the most at ease, the third one looks a bit awkward with the skirt over the trousers. He looks like he'd be happier in just the skirt
March 22, 2010 at 8:52 am
Yes ofcourse, why not? Men did wear skirts and the likes for thousands of years! In many cultures they still do. Makes me laugh about so-called modern society freaking out on something ancient as a piece of cloth hanging from a man's hips.
March 22, 2010 at 9:03 am
I'm not so open mind. The only skirt I can appreciate on a man is Kilt
March 22, 2010 at 9:07 am
In a word: YES! ;-) love them and the accessories that might go w/them! Its time! :-) Jack
March 22, 2010 at 9:19 am
Only the second one is pulling it off
March 22, 2010 at 9:27 am
the emperor has no clothes.
March 22, 2010 at 9:46 am
You have to be comfortable with yourself to wear a skirt. It often leads to an unnecessary conversation comparing what is a feminine vs. masculine. I have a few friends who wear skirts but they are usually long.
March 22, 2010 at 9:54 am
I'm fine with men wearing skirts.. not seeing why so many people are staunchly against it.
I actually think the long skirt in the first look could be pulled off. It's mostly the top half that needs to be changed (burn the sweater ;]).
March 22, 2010 at 10:01 am
not ok, what the fuck! besides the highlands, this should not happen.
March 22, 2010 at 10:16 am
The short answer is 'No'.
March 22, 2010 at 10:22 am
yes. i'm not really into clothing, but i do think that people dictates fashion, not the opposite; actually, your blog is the best example for that, Scott. so if there are men using skirts, there must be a discussion about it.
March 22, 2010 at 10:24 am
Seriously:Unless it`s actually traditional dress(ie. kilts), No way.
Playing along: The first guy`s skirt is the wrong length. It`s not flattering- it just looks dowdy.The second and third guys have better length skirts. Their lengths are more flattering to their legs.
Its just not right. And we should never ever discuss it. Period !!
March 22, 2010 at 10:26 am
Men can only wear kilts.Liliane

March 22, 2010 at 10:35 am
second guy is hot
March 22, 2010 at 10:38 am
The second guy looks absolutely perfect-why shouldn't men wear skirts?! If you have style as these guys obviously do then go for it!
No! I like simple men, with trousers and shorts. We are the girls here!
March 22, 2010 at 10:44 am
No. Just plain no.
March 22, 2010 at 10:46 am
Less disturbed by the skirts, more disturbed by the handbag-holding and the clutch.
March 22, 2010 at 10:52 am
The first photo lost me – not just girly but old woman. Oddly enough, the second and third have an air of "butch" about them. Could be the counterbalance of the feminine skirt with heavy shoes, a skirt a length to expose the male calf, and facial hair that sells the latter two photos. On the whole, though, men should steer clear.
Scott, I prefer to waste my time buying skirts than discussing about buying it or not. :p
March 22, 2010 at 10:54 am
Definitely the guy in the second picture rocks, the length is perfect and the straight, dark colours match. I'm totally fine with skirts as long as the man can pull the whole style off.
March 22, 2010 at 10:55 am
I especially like the second and third ones. I don't get why people don't like men in skirts. I think it's soooooo sexy! We women wear pants, so what's wrong with men in skirts?
My guy and I are going shopping tonight!
March 22, 2010 at 11:05 am
In some parts of Albania men still wear dresses(kilts)different way from the Scots, in the north below the knee black and heavy in the south white and above the knee,I always admired that, before trousers came along everybody was wearing them only the Gauls where known in Europe to wear trousers and I guess that's where it all started, but men should not give up their dresses(kilts)!The pics here are cool accept the guy with the ladies'bag,that element confuses the issue!
March 22, 2010 at 11:12 am
When too much is not enough…
So much changed in clothing within the last 100 years. At least in womenswear. Designer menswear has been -more or less – the same for ages now.
Skirts would be a real change finally. But the trend will probably not spread because of loads of intolerant and narrow-minded people… Nobody thinks it's funny that women wear suits or pants. I think it's time for a little (at least a little) equality!
Well, I'll wear mine anyway! And won't give a f..k about people who disapprove :-)
March 22, 2010 at 11:16 am
Not happening for me. The second man, yes, because it's a kilt I suppose, but dude 1 & 3 are off the mark.
March 22, 2010 at 11:20 am
The second guy looks hot! He´s getting a very sophisticated look and looking manly too, makes want to wear a tartan skirt right away. The first guy looks as is he is personifying a lady in her 50s. Right on guys! Let´s start wearin'em!

I would rather they didn't wear skirts at all.

March 22, 2010 at 11:34 am
I love a man in a skirt, but top one is not my cup of tea, so to speak. However, the middle one rocks my world.
March 22, 2010 at 11:38 am
#1 – proportions are all wrong, no matter who is wearng it
#2 – except for the cigarette, I really like this one. Proportions are right, great colors and accessories. It just looks right.
#3 – no commnet
March 22, 2010 at 11:43 am
well as long as they sport them the proper way as the scots do — that way being commando…the second and third look fine but the first one looks like he's playing dress-up…maybe shorten his skirt a bit and get a different bag?
March 22, 2010 at 11:46 am
First gentleman's oversized jumper/long skirt/socks outfit is for lack of a better word frumpy. If you are going with a long, full, fem skirt you need to be more rock & roll with it, in the literal sense – concert t's, leather jackets.
Mr's 2 and 3 are looking good though.
Men have been wearing skirts since history. I don't see why they can't make a "comeback". :-) The long robes, short kilts and loose drapings can be found in many cultures and civilization. And all of these men have looked normal if not just as attractive as men today. Perhaps if we could identify "how" a skirt can make a man look good, that could be the answer for designing stylish contemporary skirts for men.
March 22, 2010 at 12:02 pm
Though I'm not very fond of these pics, I must say Scotts in kilts are absolutely sexy and more when dancing!!!
March 22, 2010 at 12:03 pm
I'ma be real with you, skirts are only for women. I am all for androgyny in fashion, but this is taking it way too far. I like the kilt, but that's about that.
March 22, 2010 at 12:07 pm
My wife won't even wear a skirt the same length as in picture one. It almost looks as if his outfit is inspired by Mrs. Doubtfire. Just not working…
As for #2, it works all the way.
And #3, I like it all except for the clutch. I'd choose a larger 'statement' bag like a doctor's valet. And I'm not sure about the shoes; they are a bit distracting. No need for them when you're already wearing the skirt.
March 22, 2010 at 12:24 pm
The middle one looks the most credible…his look is more grounded with the pea coat buttoned and closed and with the toned-down boots. His "skirt" or kilt needs some pleats or something (nice plaid) though. The skirt look is for the brave right now, the mainstream will take some now (what do you wear under it anywhoo?).
March 22, 2010 at 12:35 pm
Nope. Only if it is traditional dress from your culture or country of origin!
March 22, 2010 at 12:42 pm
length isn't really the issue here, but accessories. i'm not sure about guy #1, but #2 and #3 killed it.
March 22, 2010 at 12:45 pm
Too long; Perfect; Too long or too short, one or the other.
March 22, 2010 at 1:00 pm
…being of the Scottish variety, I can firmly say yes, we are ready to discuss skirt lengths and although man no. 2 looks fantastic, technically man no. 3 has the length bang on for a kilt!
March 22, 2010 at 1:06 pm
Being of the Scottish variety, I can say absolutely yes, we have always been ready to talk about the length of a man's skirt and although man no. 2 looks fantastic, technically man no. 3 has it bang on for a kilt!
March 22, 2010 at 1:18 pm
the last photo is the first time i've seen a man wearing a skirt in a completely masculine way. TOTALLY HOT!
March 22, 2010 at 1:27 pm
The second guy (first kilt) is hot!
March 22, 2010 at 1:30 pm
LOVE the second.He & his look is super-sexy.
1st is waaay too feminine, especially with the man-bag which is really a purse, too long a skirt and the way he's holding the purse = nope.. not masculine enough for me.
2nd – can rock it.. just the skirt's length is a bit off. Worn with boots may be better too.. but loads of potential.
March 22, 2010 at 1:33 pm
LOVE men in skirts, and LOVE that you have these up!
March 22, 2010 at 1:35 pm
totally absolutely love it.
March 22, 2010 at 1:38 pm
I love a kilt with Good Legs, (nice knees lots of muscles.. a bit o'the hair…) mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm sexy! but I perhaps have a bit of a genetic propensity towards appreciating it…

March 22, 2010 at 2:01 pm
The second one is ok, as the skirt is worn in scottish style…the rest-are just guys wearing skirts…i don't get it, too much for me!
March 22, 2010 at 2:02 pm
love the skirts on men after marc jacobs… the last guy is insanely hot!!
March 22, 2010 at 2:11 pm
The surrounding details seem to make or break the effect.
1) Aims at feminine leaning androgynous. Cut of sweater, pleated skirt too long, and something about the socks. Does lack of facial hair contribute? Clench seems contrived.
2) Best of three, flat front kilt (?), good amount of leg/ing (mental reference of bike messenger proportion), pleat somewhat downplayed by pattern at this angle, finishes with masculine boot.
3) Certainly the most imposingly masculine face, but clutch seems comic, as do shoes (however interesting as they may be), too much leg, angle highlights pleat, maybe posture, composition seems bipolar at waist with a hard break via jacket length/vest/etc .
They manage to look super cool and not funny at all. But it's super risky. Like white jeans.
March 22, 2010 at 2:20 pm
If you are a Scot, yes. Everybody else, please refrain.
March 22, 2010 at 2:22 pm
Hell yeah! Love the last picture, though guy it seems, but if you look closely you'll see plenty that sais otherwise (like his small ring on his pink) it's ALWAYS in the details!
March 22, 2010 at 2:30 pm
The first man looks like he could be wearing a shorter version of the hakama. Ample pants with pleats.Love men in skirts, anyway.
March 22, 2010 at 2:32 pm
They're all rocking their looks, and I'd love to see any of them on a street!
It's funny how adamant some commenters are about this issue, almost like their whole world would crumble if they happened to see a man in a skirt. And how others think it's great, but only if it's 'masculine' enough. What's so threatening about a man who plays with masculinity just a tad? Why is menswear on women sexy, but womenswear on men ridiculous? Why is the traditionally feminine only acceptable for women – is it really that devalued?
March 22, 2010 at 2:36 pm
I am always open to discussion!
However, would you believe that I have been trying to buy a skirt for men for close to a year and have not found one yet? Where can I get them?
Or should I buy a women's skirt? which size (I have a 31 inches waist).
March 22, 2010 at 2:45 pm
Had the skirt length for men discussion in the 80s with a friend. Conclusion was any skirt length is good and a small heel like guy #2 and #3 make the look better. However, guy #3 does it best for me. Love the metallic shoes. I want to hug guy #1 and kiss him on the forehead for being courageous. Guy #2 is handsome and attitud-i-nal and and it makes him sexy.
March 22, 2010 at 2:53 pm
The first one is a little too much for me. The second and third works well.
March 22, 2010 at 3:17 pm
The second guy looks awesome! I think that's the way men should wear manly skirts. Otherwise, just look at the Japanese Visual Kei rock artists! Some of them wear skirts and dresses. For example Miyavi and Mana. The latter makes me think of how unfair it is when a man looks better in a dress than I ever will…
March 22, 2010 at 3:24 pm
sorry but.. cannot find anything less sexy than a man with this kind of skirt! the pics are fine however.. a great portrait of a great madness I would say :)
March 22, 2010 at 3:27 pm
just over the knee or on it…never above and never mid calfpicture one is just too much but i am a bit of a traditionalist who likes men to be well…mennumber one feminine face, the way he holds the bag, the length of that skirt…it truly is very off putting
March 22, 2010 at 3:39 pm
definitely not ..
March 22, 2010 at 3:40 pm
Such a tricky look. I am sure though, that a man must be completely at ease with his masculinity to wear one! While I wouldn't have the guts, I think these boys look great.
March 22, 2010 at 3:41 pm
You betta worrrk!

I find men in skirts just irresistible
March 22, 2010 at 4:33 pm
a kilt is a kilt is a kilt, the first is just a badly dressed bag of laundry
Since Jonathan Davis i've wanted to see more mens in skirts:P it's so cool the way they weare them.. I like the look of second and third guy!!
March 22, 2010 at 4:38 pm
I love it and have been saying it's a must for years, bring it on men!
March 22, 2010 at 4:48 pm
they are horrible it's fashion crime they are onl for women

We designed men skirt for our latest collection, as an accessory with big utilitarian pockets…the comments?..hmmmm still divided…http://www.testarudo.com.co
March 22, 2010 at 4:56 pm
I am really shocked that there are so many judgments against men wearing skirts being posted.
To all the naysayers, I propose broadening an understanding about gender and what it means to be male/female/or any of the gray areas in between.
Personally, I like the second look, and how the subject confronts the viewer with a mix of ease and confidence. Hot.
March 22, 2010 at 5:02 pm
Ridiculous and shameless….
March 22, 2010 at 5:05 pm
Ugh what does it say about the world that androgyny is sexy only when a woman dresses up to look like a man? Why is it acceptable for a woman to dress in a very masculine way, but for a man to dress in a feminine way is weird or wrong or degrading? Even the positive reactions here praise how masculine these men make the skirts look, because otherwise it wouldn't work. "Emasculation" is still always considered a negative process. This post is really frustrating.
March 22, 2010 at 5:15 pm
Guy #3 rocks it. The others, not so much. Incidentally, I've worn skirts and prefer them longer, probably because I'm 6'4" and skinny. Anyway, it can be done.
March 22, 2010 at 5:20 pm

March 22, 2010 at 5:23 pm
skirt for men is wrong!!!!…..but they look good!
March 22, 2010 at 5:25 pm
i really love the second look the best. it could be the cig hanging off his lips and the tattoo on his hand. totally cool.
March 22, 2010 at 5:38 pm
The second one looks great but the others no..no..no..no!
March 22, 2010 at 5:49 pm
Top picture:My mum is going to be p.o'd when she finds out he raided her closet.
Middle picture:He pulls it off due to his age, attitude and svelte figure.
Bottom picture:Looks ridiculous. The too short sleeves may be the problem, but it's also the pants that look like leggings under the skirt. Either cross dress or get off the pot!
i think they are all really awesome…… its about time that men explore new fashion ideas as fashion for men is super boring at times, its the same thing all the time. And as for all those men and women who say that men don't wear skirts – who says? men are wearing jewelry now, and have pierced ears, and straight rockers wear eye makeup. the only person that you have to be concerned with regarding your fashion choices is you. like i said, i think its really awesome.
March 22, 2010 at 5:57 pm
Oh gee, I don't know…
March 22, 2010 at 6:04 pm
As noted by others, Mr. Number Two is in a kilt–which really is populist indigenous wear in Scotland. I saw blokes in contemporary carpenter's and hiking versions when I lived in Aberdeen.
March 22, 2010 at 6:15 pm
Love the 2nd and 3rd. the first gent is drowning a bit.
March 22, 2010 at 6:23 pm
The third is truly amazing, because he is natural in his madness!!!

I posted a photo of a young man in Toronto, Ontario, wearing a skirt back in November, and most women thought he looked hot! It is about length and proportion and what you're wearing it with, and I think the second and third guy have it right. They look masculine and sexy, and I would be happy to be seen with either one of them.
March 22, 2010 at 7:42 pm
It's always been real men wear pink…this takes it to a whole new level! This may get interesting.
March 22, 2010 at 7:51 pm
the first one is too long, the other two are just right!
March 22, 2010 at 8:07 pm
I thought it humorous that this post has over 400 responses…Obviously this is a topic that's been 'skirted' for too long :) *groan*
First one: looks like he raided gramma's closet…in the dark; second guy, nice, but I'm neutral on it; third guy–that face! Brave enough to wear a skirt, yet badass enough to kick a** on those who drop the snide comment, lol; tho I think he should have skipped the leggings(?) and opted for a pair of rugged boots instead…
March 22, 2010 at 8:08 pm
Yes, we are ready to talk about length of men's skirts. Why not? Do we talk about women's fashion? We do what we like, so why men can't do the same?My yes goes to the 3rd picture, looks really manly, it's cool, and shoes make a huge difference!breanne
March 22, 2010 at 8:40 pm
Ow ow. The second and third most definitely! The third I think is the coolest. Though I have to say guys should not wear skirts. No one should wear skirts. Pants and shorts all the way!
March 22, 2010 at 9:08 pm
Ok, they look awesome but stil there is something it doesn't convince me.. at some point they are stylish but not as a real man to me, u know what i mean? maybe is that I don't see the masculinity.. whatever, love the 2nd skirt for me! haha
March 22, 2010 at 9:29 pm
Wow – amazing how many commenters (is that a word? spell check doesn't think so) are unfamiliar with the VERY OLD tradition of men in kilts. Very manly men in kilts. Going off to battle in them as recently as World War I.
Number two looks like your average Glasgow football hooligan to me, which is not to say I don't like it, I do. I like number three too, but not number one.
March 22, 2010 at 9:30 pm
The 2nd guy, that´s the lenght that looks better … or maybe it´s just the guy.The other 2 didn´t pull it off.
March 22, 2010 at 9:48 pm
why not? open your minds…………………
March 22, 2010 at 9:51 pm
Guys 2 and 3 are making it work – the first guy looks like a grandma holding his man-bag like that and his cardigan. would I wear one? it'd have to be really cool and for a unique occasion.
March 22, 2010 at 10:42 pm
Let me just say, THANK GOD!
March 23, 2010 at 1:37 am
Absolutely love a man in a kilt- knee length, bare legs. sexy. Have you ever seen the guys in South India, Kerala in their lunghis? really, its a very cool look.
March 23, 2010 at 1:38 am
oh oh! oh!
March 23, 2010 at 1:51 am
oh, I don't know…..I just don't think we're ready yet….
March 23, 2010 at 2:24 am
The second look is great but the other too are a little too much, especially the first one.
March 23, 2010 at 3:10 am
Incredible!! LoVe them all! I only say incredible, because you see so little of it and it does seem like a radical moVe on the males part….
….I am not sure why there is so much fear of this fashion amongst many. To me it is simply substituting trousers for a skirt–both perform a similar function–that is to cover the lower half of the body and both can be styled in a similar Vein to one another.
—so you don't really need to be "out there" with a skirt just like with a trouser. And so the opposite is true–you can go crazy with a skirt as you can with a trouser.
The style of the top fellow –well I can see exactly what he might wear when he wears trousers….
I come to the Sartorialist as an older person to have my mind opened, be inspired, allow myself to be refreshed and renewed–I hope readers see that this is what drives so many and what change for the better is all about.
Skirts are worn the world over by men in so many cultures–it's not a new thing. By the same token–the positive quality we saw in parts of society as rebellion and "rights" for women in allowing them to wear trousers, seems to be lacking in society now for acceptance of men to wear skirts and dresses. It really is no big deal.
Oh and why do they have to be "masculine" to be accepted? Some have a more feminine inherent quality that they enjoy expressing– and that is good.
March 23, 2010 at 3:28 am
Free your mind!
We don't need to discuss skirt lenght at all. Any lenght is ok.
Men can wear skirts, thights, heels, whatever. When just enough men do that people will become used to it. All you need is self-confidence.
The problem is not men wearing skirts but all these narrow-minded people and their weird mental associations. Of course, you may not like it. But fashion is never wrong, just unusual. I for example consider sneakers the ugliest shoes ever, but if you like them, wear them.
Fortunately there are also many others who like men in skirts. I already got many compliments over the years.
Have fun, be happy. :)
March 23, 2010 at 4:02 am
i'd definitely go with the 2nd one.
March 23, 2010 at 4:43 am
I think this falls under the category of "flamboyance" and not "style". It is fine for people to enjoy looking ridiculous; but they sure do look ridiculous.

Kneecaps should be visible! As a Scot I approve of the kilt being worn more widely and have no qualms about fashion interpretations beyond the traditionally accepted Highland Dress. But mid-kneecap is in my view the maximum acceptable length.
I'm sure Garance would agree!
March 23, 2010 at 7:05 am
First skirt is one of the worst looks EVER on this site – far too try-hard and look-at-me-I'm-hoping-The-Sartorialist-is-about-or -I-will-have-drssed-up-for-nothing
Middle look is the most natural
Third is more confused – think he'd be happier without the leggings
March 23, 2010 at 7:19 am
This is cool!I would like to see more of this out there. :)
March 23, 2010 at 7:46 am
oh nooo! well, the kilt looks ok ish…should have been shorter though.
March 23, 2010 at 7:55 am
2010 is awesome
March 23, 2010 at 8:28 am
I love the idea of all different skirts for men. men wear skirts for all different reasons. they should have that freedom, the ability to wear what feels right to them. the spectrum from traditional men's clothes to transvestite needs to be explored! especially for those who feel more feminine inside but do not feel the need to be over the top. – Heather

please add me to the nos. and this coming from someone in a country where the man skirt is part of our national costume.
March 23, 2010 at 9:15 am
Kilts yes, skirts no.
March 23, 2010 at 9:31 am
Personally… I am a clothing traditionalist, like someone else said. Skirts and men, bad bed fellow make. Kilts and men? That's totally different- I haven't worn pants in years in preference of the kilt. But make no mistakes, ladies- what these men are wearing are not kilts! I know a lot of women love the kilted look… but these abominations have got to go before more people mistake them for kilts!
March 23, 2010 at 9:44 am
It's not the length that doesn't work for me on #1, it's that I think the cut is wrong for him. With his very slender build, he can totally rock a closer-cut skirt, although I'd still suggest something straight-cut rather than curvy.
#2 and #3 look just fine to me!
March 23, 2010 at 10:26 am
What's so cool is that, given the fact that skirts for men are not ubiquitous, they can wear them as they please….there is no trend or norm. I think that all the hems fit their wearers here, but I especially love the last guy…..
March 23, 2010 at 10:57 am
i don't know if we are ready, but they definitely do. i'm pretty amazed the the 2nd and 3rd who i consider as pretty manly-man wear skirts. they are definitly eyecatchers!
March 23, 2010 at 12:04 pm
The kilt isn't bad, its a cool look with the boots. But overall, not sure if skirts are the way.
March 23, 2010 at 12:39 pm
skirts on men is just not right, unless they're worn like the hard core scottish guy in the second pic. its part of his heritage and he's wearing it proudly, with the boots and tats adding an edgy element. pics 1 and 3 are simply odd.
March 23, 2010 at 2:03 pm
Please, dear God, do not let men wear skirts. This is possibly the worst style trend I have seen on this blog…
March 23, 2010 at 2:37 pm
yes we are, because a skirt just look amazing on men!!
March 23, 2010 at 2:40 pm
Wow, I didn't think I would love this as much as I do. I think the leggings (did someone call them "meggings"? – awesome) really help the look go from "This skirt is wearing me" to "I am wearing the hell out of this skirt."
March 23, 2010 at 3:15 pm
i think the first young man is dressed like my grandmother minus the chucks. i'm not trying to be mean or make a joke either.
the second young man pulls it off perfectly and just looks like one of the lads.
the third gentleman looks like the kilt was an afterthought unfortunately. i think he is dressed just fine if he didn't have the kilt on. the shoes pop out nicely.
March 23, 2010 at 4:23 pm
Love the idea.
March 23, 2010 at 5:32 pm
Yes we are, indeed!
March 23, 2010 at 5:34 pm
Anyone know where the bag if from in the first photo?
March 23, 2010 at 7:06 pm
How about handbag colors? Geez.
Maybe if they were Fijian (but I'll bend on the Scot too).
March 23, 2010 at 8:20 pm
First guy — sigh.
Kilt guy — thumbs up. Kinda sexy.
Metallic shoe guy — just misses the mark and wanders into scary territory. Maybe he could lose the leather jacket.
I'm less convinced about skirts for men than tunics over tight pants.
March 23, 2010 at 8:21 pm
HA HA OH WOW
March 23, 2010 at 8:26 pm
Yes. I wear a utilikilt for doing labour and it's super comfortable and women really seem to love it. don't know about the long skirt, I think the great thing on guys is the contrast between the kilt and the strong muscular legs.
It seems odd that no one cares that women were trousers but a dude in even a kilt is looked at as funny.
March 23, 2010 at 8:31 pm
Definitely not at all. Except on the second photo. He pulls it off- it only works if you're going for a kind of London early 80's dawn of punk kilt-wearing-as-a-type-of-rebellion-as-well-as-expression-of-national-pride aesthetic. Otherwise, it just doesn't work in the modern world.
March 23, 2010 at 9:02 pm
This makes me think Pelayo Diaz
no, I don´t like how see they, I'm a modern woman, but not too much to find it a good look … I like the man with pants, jeans, shorts, panties, naked, long hair, hoop or ring, but with a skirt, it does not convince me, it's too much!!!! … unless a Scot man in his costume. I like innovation, but a man use skirt not like the looks … maybe I'm a traditional woman in this case…sorry for my english!!!

I love reading the comments and being able to guess what the people who left them are like – "Ooh, what a conservative", "Mm, he's progressive", or "Gah, she's just jumping onto the bandwagon."
Personally, I think that knee-length or ankle-length skirts look great. The mid-to-lower-calf-length exhibited in the first pic makes the look awkward, whereas the second two really pull it off.
I think that man skirts will come in (or, *back* in – hello Roman togas, hello Christopher Columbus) by first looking like baggy jersey shorts (uh, hello NBA players!). Either way they go, I welcome them. And the fabulous men in them. Mmm.
March 23, 2010 at 11:17 pm
It is a rad look. All the guys are doing it in "tune".
+ I saw a guy with a skirt in Canberra yesterday. Maybe fashionistas are invading my quiet home city?
March 24, 2010 at 12:18 am
March 24, 2010 at 1:19 am
I highly approve. Of all three. What is so scary to people about men in skirts? They're awfully comfortable, you know. Anyway. I'm totally into that first kid. He's got potential.
March 24, 2010 at 3:31 am
All the guys I've known who wore skirts and kilts have been super-cool (and not just in the hipster sense of the word–they've all been solid, centered, really nice folks). I've always liked the look in and of itself, but it tends to get even better when personality & attitude get factored in. As for the photos–Image 1 is charming, but I find 2 and 3 most appealing. Love the way #3 seems to be saying, "You got something to say about the skirt? Step closer & say it. I dare you."
March 24, 2010 at 3:33 am
I have to say, that I was allways attrected to men in skirts….and I am looking forward for my own…..the best one the third, altho the second guy is sexier….
March 24, 2010 at 5:34 am
OHOHOH!!! The second guy. Kilts are sexy, especially with the odd tatt thrown in.
March 24, 2010 at 5:38 am
My goodness, we definitely live in a sleepy little village somewhere in the middle of Belgium´s nowhere… We should move to Paris :)Amazing people!Best regards, Marjolijn
March 24, 2010 at 9:31 am
When I read the title, I went 'uh oh' and then I saw the photo of the second guy and I went 'awesome!'. He pulls it off the best I think, because he still looks so masculine without drawing too much attention at the fact he's wearing a skirt. I think it might be the length and how he put everything else together, real nice.
March 24, 2010 at 10:24 am
As a straight female I prefer men to look somewhat masculine. I love the Kilt length in the second and third pics but the first one with the bag and the draped jacket looks too 'old lady'.
March 24, 2010 at 11:33 am
I just have to ask this… For all the people who say no, why? I don't want an emotional response, I don't want "because I said so…". Why?? THINK about it.
It seems that women are allowed, no, encouraged to think outside the box, change what they don't like, push the boundaries of what's acceptable for them in society.
Men, on the other hand, are basically told to sit down, shut up, accept what you're told, and KNOW YOUR PLACE.
I, for one, do not like that attitude. But I LOVE skirts for men!
March 24, 2010 at 12:23 pm
Good scootsmanship!!love it!!
March 24, 2010 at 1:38 pm
i like skirt men.also leggins would be good for men.
March 24, 2010 at 1:55 pm
Wow, didn't expect there to be so many misogynistic, sexist and even feminist fashion bigots here.
First guy pictured gets so much bashing just because he looks to be "gay". Please find better words in your vocabulary.
Personally I'm not feeling the looks on these men, but men can wear skirts. If they'd like to and choose to.
At least this trio are making an effort to put together a look. That's beyond the grasp of too many people.
March 24, 2010 at 2:02 pm
i tink the skirts for mens are totaly stupid. what`s next…a brassier for mens…?
March 24, 2010 at 2:05 pm
They all look really peeved to be in them. As would I.
March 24, 2010 at 3:22 pm
awesomereal men wear skirts!I totaly agree!I guess they look realy nice.
March 24, 2010 at 4:48 pm
I am finding those second two men verrrrry attractive. Very. I like.
March 24, 2010 at 5:34 pm
men wear skirt completely fine with me. here in Indonesia many men love to wear sarong as their daily/sleeping wardrobe [also wear it to some traditional ceremony things, sometimes with pants underneath]. it's like a long skirt and truly comfy! ;)

March 24, 2010 at 7:12 pm
Though Scots wear KILTS, not skirts. These are distinctively different to skirts. I feel as a Scottish person it is my duty to point this out. The second pic looks like really more of a kilt, it being tartan and all.
I think these guys look great! Scottish men have been making them look hot for centuries now, I think it's about time that the rest of the world checked out what all of the fuss is about!
March 24, 2010 at 7:39 pm
I still can't get used to the idea of a man wearing a skirt-no matter how sexy!
March 24, 2010 at 9:49 pm
When worn with the confidence and attitude of 2 and 3 I think skirts/kilts kick ass! I couldn't care less about their sexual preferences, nor do I find it an indicator. However, number 1 looks, to me, as if he raided his mother and teen sisters closets in the dark. I just find it awkward.
March 25, 2010 at 3:26 am
I don't particularly like men in skirts because usually the tailoring of skirts quite never fits them well. I do like men in kilts… definitely! I live in Scotland so I guess that's why. The men in these pictures look interesting but the third one of the man with the shiny shoes is the one I feel wins in style, length and shape.J

Long dress, long-dress like skirt, and other lose fabric from top to feet and similar cuts are common in Asian's root of fashion. Influences are just from them who called 'modernity' made changes in some part. So, rock on!
March 25, 2010 at 8:44 am
I don't want to see any skirt but a kilt on a man, not totally surprising as I'm a proud Scot!
March 25, 2010 at 1:17 pm
As a regular kilt-wearer I needed to comment. first, kudos to the guys if they wear them past the shoot. BUT, if skirts for men are ever going to be accepted, they need to be clearly masculine. The gender-blurring nonsense doesn't work, and won't in our current society. When I go out in a kilt, and I go out to the grocery, downtown, everywhere, noone questions.
So what's a "kilt" Pleats in the BACK, flat apron in the front. Anything else is a skirt, and looks girly. So, the "I like kilts with pleats all the way around" doesn't work. It's not a kilt. After that, contemporary or traditional, there are certain "cues" which say "guy" when it comes to donning the kilt.
Guy number one…nothing to say. Looks like he raided my grand-aunts closet. nothing screams crossdresser better than a long skirt and ladies sweater. striped socks and trainers? Leather gym bag? awful. sheesh..
Guy number 2…awesome! Kilt's a bit low. Should be mid-knee at the lowest despite what the designers and stars want you to believe, and I'd agree he needs at least a kilt pin. Most folks wear a sporran but some don't. Doesn't have to be a tradiional one. There are some cool contemporary sporran makers (like Sporran Nation). Needs chunky boots and scrunched dark hose. Ditch the leggings.
Guy number 3…not bad. What's with the clutch? Are we back to cross dressing? Again, I think a good look, but AGAIN, ditch the leggings and gold shoes. Man-up, put on some combat boots and hose, ditch the purse for god's sake, and the leggings and it's an awesome look.
My 2 cents from a guy who does this alot….
March 25, 2010 at 2:28 pm
<3 Love it. Contestant number one brought a good laugh to my morning.
March 25, 2010 at 2:40 pm
throw in some bag pipes, and you've got yourself a deal. minus numero uno. unless he's carrying the bagpipe in his bag, then that would explain it. other than that, he just looks silly. number three looks tough, so it works. and i'm lookin' at the man in the middle. i'm not asking him to change his ways. he is rocking that look and it is fine with me. why are pea coats so cool? and i like that i like things on this guy i don't normally like. like the color purple. love the flashes in his rad boots, his kilt, and his tattoos. even the lackadaisical cig works. why? i hate smoking. this guy's just rad.
March 25, 2010 at 6:19 pm
these guys all look like clowns. prime examples of "fashion", but not real style…costume, nothing more.
March 25, 2010 at 6:35 pm
About time I say. Not that long ago, men used to live & work in skirted garments, and 60 years ago it was almost unheard of for a women to wear trousers. Blokes gear is erm 'limiting'. These blokes carry it off well. I wear skirts myself much of the time – often more extreme than those featured: http://scratch.veletron.com/skirt.jpg
March 25, 2010 at 7:00 pm
Skirt, yes, but handbag or clutch, no, thank you. The only truly manly one is the second one. Plus, he's rocking it with his hand and neck tattoos. And the cigarette adds the final touch that makes him grrrr…
The third one and the first one are horrid… Especially the third one, with layers on the upper body, when he's already carrying his weight in his top half.
The first one is trying too hard to make the "old lady" look cool… not working for me.
March 25, 2010 at 8:08 pm
So much controversy about so little pieces of fabric…
Over 500 comments so far… Who would have thought that skirts for men can cause such a discussing even these days?! I wore one today and some people walking by may have thought it looked stupid, but everyone I talked to at the magazine presentation I worked at thought it looked great. And that's much more important than some styleless giggling teenies and touris…
March 25, 2010 at 8:37 pm
Love the third photo. These guys are confident and I admire it.
March 25, 2010 at 10:28 pm
I think skirts for men have to bear a close resemblance to kilts- shape, fit an style wise so that it doesn't look costumey or drag. so they should hit at the knee, have that A-shape and be worn with punk touches- boots a la Marc Jacobs. Lather jackets just as the third gentleman over here does it, or with tattooed hands and cigarettes. It feels that it needs very masculine touched to counteract the femininity of it. That's why i don't like the style in the first picture- the skirt is wearing him, not the other way around, and it's way to much of a soft approach.
I think Marc and Alexander McQueen did it best: Marc in a clean cut way, but with a rock and roll edge, and McQueen in a truly deeply Scottish punk way.
March 26, 2010 at 5:43 am
the first guy looks like he just got back from sewing class..
the second adn third guys loooked like.. well.. look liked they would kick your ass if you look at them funny..
March 26, 2010 at 10:46 am
masculine? In a homo way!
March 26, 2010 at 12:06 pm
First one – impressively matronly for a young skinny man. The whole outfit is definitely wearing (burying?) him. Second two work for me – the last one best (working off traditional Scottish dress with the vest, without actually wearing a kilt, great lengths, fit, accessories).
Minis – like the 15th C – I'll bet it could be done with the right pair of legs.
March 26, 2010 at 12:52 pm
i was surprised with the amount of comments! such a great post! :) but then when i read the second comment i was like "what da … ", some people just don't get it, and it is so fucking boring. that's it. i stopped right away.
March 26, 2010 at 1:15 pm
whoah!some guys can really pull it off wearing a skirt!
March 26, 2010 at 1:58 pm
I like some men in skirts when they keep their masculinity. Like the second and third photos!
March 26, 2010 at 10:29 pm
The skirt is well-worn but the second two men. The first one is way too overtly feminine. Maybe that's his intention, but it just doesn't work. I live in the Midwest, where fashion is a mere spark of the imagination. Most people are clueless here. And after I saw this photo I was thinking, where the hell would I see a man wearing a skirt around here? Ironically enough, I stepped out onto my University campus the next day, and there is was! A man in a Celtic Skirt and all! Made me smile!
March 27, 2010 at 2:18 pm
gender bendy hotness
March 27, 2010 at 5:57 pm
my two cents is that these all look fine as far as length is concerned its just that when you dress it up too much to is reminicent of how 'mom' might dress and looks a little off. Otherwise the lengths really are'nt the problem. Also why do they all have to be black?
March 28, 2010 at 9:06 pm
Yes, I'm ready….. but skirts must be have the real kind of style and that is the base for a proper length. Men have to find their own way what they like. I never could read discussion what is the right style or length for women pants, so why is the discussion for men's skirts going on?Just support the new way of fashion for men like we did and do when new fashion-styles for women were/will be/ created, don't you think?
March 31, 2010 at 12:15 am
Some points to ponder:1. Forget Kilts! A kilt is usually expensive, heavy, and old fashion. Remember a Kilt is a Skirt by Definition so call it what it really is…a SKIRT! (Just a particular TYPE of Skirt).
2. Skirts are better suited for male anatomy than for a female for obvious reasons. No crotch binding seams for the first time ever! That is a sensation few males know about since they grew up with just pants and shorts. CAUTION: Once a skirt is tried on for any length of time a guy is not likely to give it up!
3. Skirt recommendation: Try on a "Juniors Size" (hips fit men perfectly) Mini Cargo Skirt in place of shorts this summer. No modifications are necessary. These usually are worn on the hips like a good pair of jeans and are about as unisex as you can get. Costs are zip. Found some good camouflage cargo skirts on E-Bay for less then $2.00 and I treasure them! Also in Khaki or tan are great. Aeropostale, Nori, etc. brands can be cheap with great quality. Search http://www.eBay.com for "Cargo mini skirt" and you will find some (not all) that will look and fit a guy perfectly. Comfort for a guy beyond his imagination!
4. Length?? What to get…. Experience shows that a standard length mini skirt is 12" long. (They vary from 10.5" to 15" or more). The thing to realize as a guy is that a 12 inch mini skirt IS the same length as men’s GYM shorts so it really isn't a big transition from shorts! The word mini makes one think it is too short but it isn't. (A micro mini usually less than 10.5" is about the same length as men’s running shorts). The reason to have mid to upper thy length skirts is mobility. You can move easily without the restriction of a longer skirt. Mainly in summer as a substitute for shorts.
5. What to wear under the skirt: You will have the same issues women have. There will be a flash from time to time especially with the mini skirts but when worn with undies so what! You are covered. So yes… wear something as to not give the trend a bad name! (I never understood why women go to such great lengths to prevent an inadvertent flash when they are wearing underwear… you see more at the beach)!
6. Men are much more "Homophobic" than women and that is the main problem today. Women were able to transition to pants without a lot of problems but men don't want to be seen as homosexual or weaker which is “non sense” because clothing doesn't change who we are. The world was conquered repeatedly by some of the toughest men in history and they all wore skirts! Attila the Hun, Genghis Kahn, Caesar, etc. PS: Gays don't wear skirts so that is not a valid issue. You see that only on TV and in the movies!
A guy in a skirt will still look like a guy just a women still look like women when wearing pants!
Worn with guy clothes you are not a cross dresser or TV trying to impersonate a woman…
March 31, 2010 at 12:17 am
Skirts have been worn by men for thousands of years and were perfected before the Victorian Era of prudish nonsense started that we can't seem to shake off.It would be great for you women to help the guys open up their horizons to more options to their boring wardrobe of just pants and shorts. There are thousands of variation of skirts alone but you would also have to NOT be homophobic or selfish. (Some women think skirts are only for women…imagine if men thought the same for pants). Check about a thousands regular guys in skirts here:
The really big thing to notice is just how boring a guy in a skirt really looks. After awhile it becomes “Oh Hum” as you will notice as the number of hits drop off the further down. Hahahaha notice the girls in skirts… the guys are definitely NOT competition for the chicks! (Same with pants the chicks always look better…).
The skirt is a really great option for the guys if they can just get over their homophobia and quit worrying that they might be seen as a sissy or weak or gay. A guy without homophobia is SECURE in his sexuality and none of that will apply to him. He is the one most likely to give a skirt a shot and the type of guy women will not have problems with…
March 31, 2010 at 1:07 am
Only pic 2 works, IMO. Knee length denim could be a winner. Or cargo skirts. Anything too long looks silly. The kilt looks okay but lose the leggings.
But seriously I can't see this becoming fashion. :(
April 4, 2010 at 10:42 am
#2 is perfection. #1 makes the guy look dowdy. #3 is all right, but I prefer #2 where the knee is not sticking out and looking knobby.
April 7, 2010 at 1:44 am
I think it could totally work if they wear it with confidence. The first guy is cool, but he seems pretty nervous or something to have his picture being taken. There should be more skirts for men being made though.
April 7, 2010 at 6:43 pm
There are plenty of women's skirts that look right for guys. Just have to find them. A plain cargo mini skirt worn with regular guy clothes will look more manly than these three. Bought in Juniors sizing so the hips are not too big these skirts fit guys perfectly as is and it is not cross dressing worn with guy clothes. A guy will still look like a guy when in a skirt just as women still look like women when wearing pants. A Kilt IS a Skirt by definition (just a particular STYLE of skirt that is costly, heavy, hot and generally ugly). Skirts for guys is win win..cooler on a hot day and women love a guy in a skirt knowing he is secure in his sexuality like these guys in skirts: http://picasaweb.google.com/Patagoniakid
April 7, 2010 at 8:51 pm
As a skirt wearer, I would lean towards the first photo because I prefer ankle-length skirts. I wear an occasional kilt so the knee-length works also in the second photo, but overall I think long skirts are the most comfortable and stylish for men. Besides, dancing and twirling at a Contra Dance in a long, broomstick skirt is so much fun! My blog at http://skirtingintothefuture.blogspot.com/ offers support, tips and ideas for guys in skirts.
April 9, 2010 at 3:44 am
does anyone know what type of bag that last guy is carrying?
April 13, 2010 at 10:14 am
Kilts = yesSkirts = noKilts + leggings = barf
Kilts are not skirts though.
April 19, 2010 at 9:33 pm
Many observations are possible on this topic but due to space I'll make only one here. Suggesting that kilts are the only nontrouser alternative for men is no different in essence than telling men that if they wish to engage in overseas travel, Scotland is the only permissible destination for them. Is anyone telling women they should restrict themselves to only one trouser style? See? FYI Greek skirts worn by men far predate Scottish kilts & bagpipes were invented in Greece & brought to Scotland (Caledonia) by the Romans. Freedom of dress is about variety of styles—not senseless limitation to one fixed style. Yes, kilts are the "thin edge of the wedge" but are long since on the scene. Time is overdue for expanding frontiers versus being stuck with limitations. Ethnic Scots should not change as long as they don't care to; but don't hold others back! (This is not an argument leading to men wearing bras!)
April 21, 2010 at 6:09 pm
soooooooooo god !
April 24, 2010 at 1:40 pm
When I was first dating my now-husband, I told him I could never marry a guy who wouldn't wear a skirt. When he said he and his brother had always dreamt of wearing kilts at their weddings, it was clear that we were meant to be.
April 24, 2010 at 11:03 pm
The first time I saw men wearing skirts was during a fashion show I was in around 1984. I have to say, I love skirts on men. But I agree with many of the comments here–looks good on the last two guys, not so much on the first guy. His is too long, too granny-ish and not right with the rest of his get-up. His sweater, his coat over his shoulders, the way he is carrying his bag…he looks like someone's Grandma.
April 25, 2010 at 1:49 am
Actually it is time to accept that man can wear skirt. Skirt is not just for women, they can wear skirt! They have two legs!! Women can wear pants and skirt, but why can't men wear it? We must be open-minded. Skirt is not the possession of women.
April 25, 2010 at 12:42 pm
yes, oui pour la jupe pour homme. libert
April 25, 2010 at 9:15 pm
Yes, I think we are ready to talk about length of skirts on men, but doing that we have to discuss length of skirts for women too. Equality!
Or should not discuss skirt-length at all, it must be a question about taste, feeling and comfort in the frame of aesthetic. And therefore it is only a question for both sexes.Seeing some girls belts called skirts I really have a question for – but that is not the topic on that blog.I think men will find their way like we did in past.C.R.

i want a skirt
May 7, 2010 at 1:17 am
It's totally bad-ass!
They should always have something underneath, though, and no handbag. I like number two the best (and not just because it's plaid). Number three is a close second (I'd like it more w/o the bag and ankles showing).

If you take away his head then No1 looks like someones nutty grandma. Lovin No2 tho!

Sexy, sexy, sexy!! 2nd photo – this young man nailed this look. Wish I could teleport him to my shop.

For someone who values practicality in clothes above all else, the skirt is a tough sell. The kilt fella (minus the dangling ciggy) looks very good, but I wonder how he'd look on any sort of bike.
A long kameez can also look good, but I imagine I'd keep stepping on the hem.
May 26, 2010 at 4:19 pm
I think the second and third men look the skirts look very manly. I didn't think that would be possible, but they have proved me wrong.
May 29, 2010 at 7:28 am
Kilts are hot. I wish more men would wear kilts, but the other two styles don't work IMO. The first is far too long.
May 30, 2010 at 12:23 pm
I like the second guy the best. I love the boots too. This is a great outfit for winter, obviously, you cannot wear that in summer. I would assume that a shorter skirt would be fine for summer, above the knee not shorter than mid thigh, like pleated… The last one is OK, but too much black for me. I do not like the first one. He looks like he is wearing my grand mother's outfit, and the bag and the way he holds it makes him look very feminine. This is not a style I would like for me. I think skirt wearing for man should be knee length and just under the knee for formal dress (like going out to a restaurant or work) and a classic type skirt would be best. For casual wear as long as the color is not feminine just above knee or shorter for the summer. I don't really like very long skirts for men…

Nice but nah
June 16, 2010 at 1:15 am
Wow, these men really pull off the look. It's quite a difficult one,I say.
July 24, 2010 at 4:27 am
Someone commented "I feel like it's the last province of women and they are intruding."Well, what about women wearing trousers, or doing what were traditionally men's jobs? There's a double standard here.As for men wearing skirts, I agree whole heartedly that men SHOULD have the choice and wear skirts. Women can still look feminine while wearing trousers, so why can't men look masculine while wearing a skirt? It's all about perception. If enough men wore skirts it would become the norm – a non-event. Roll on the day!! I'm a man and wear skirts & kilts & sarongs, and find them infinitely more comfortable that trousers!

First guy is original, a manly guy in a skirt. Second guy is just a guy (maybe a Scot) in a kilt, very common in the British Isles. 3rd guy is a cop – out. What's the use of wearing a skirt if you wear pants under it? Might as well just wear pants only like the rest of the "Scared to Skirt" male population. The whole Idea of a man wearing a skirt is comfort and health that he can't get from pants. A skirt over pants doesn't stop the cancers and other pancreatic/prostate problems caused by pants. I DO agree his shoes look like shiny beetles tho. I wear a skirt all my waking hours and a nightshirt for sleeping. I've not worn a pair of pants more than twice a week since 2005 when I started wearing skirts exclusively. I only wear pants if all my skirts are in the laundry. When I can afford it, I'll buy enough skirts so I never need to wear pants for any reasons. For a site for manly skirt wearing men, check out http://skirts4men.myfreeforum.org/
August 1, 2010 at 5:21 pm
I'm not ready to discuss. I'm a man, so I decide which length I'ld like to wear! And if I would like to wear a mini skirt with high heels, I'll do that.

N0.2 is a Kilt not a skirt
February 17, 2013 at 9:21 am
“It’s not an automobile, it’s a Ford Mustang. He’s not a South American, he’s a Bolivian. It’s not a geological feature, it’s a peak. It’s not a gemstone, it’s a spinel. It’s not a weapon, it’s a spear. It’s not a tree, it’s a cypress. It’s not a building, it’s a skyscraper. It’s not a church, its Presbyterian. He’s not a politician, he’s a Democrat. It’s not a food, it’s a raspberry.” Must I continue? Kilts are a specific subcategory pertaining to a master category—the master category we know as “skirt.” Rhetoric and denials cannot change that. Honesty for once would in this case be refreshing, but is seldom encountered. That’s a disgrace.
August 22, 2010 at 4:36 am
Yes, men should wear skirts, any length that that suits the weather on the day. I personally prefer below the knee on me though.

I think they all look great. A guy who is confident enough and playful enough to acknowledge his feminine side totally rocks my boat.
September 3, 2010 at 11:30 pm
I know skirts for men isn't for narrow minded people because it is a new look, looks hot and gets out of stereotyped dressing form – finally some brave and encouraged men going with it.Length? Each individual should decide it!Tine
September 5, 2010 at 12:03 am
Some men do not have to hide their masculinity in a pair of pants, they are brave enough to wear skirts. Others have to hide, and even more and playing macho. Want to see real men (not only Scots can wear skirts) wearing their original garment since thousands of years: a skirt. Women use it only 227 years. T.H.

If women can wear pants, men should be able to wear skirts. But, just like skirts on women, you can't just throw anything on. Still, I think three guys did pretty well, especially the last one.
Also I want to liberate his shoes from his feet and stow them away in my closet. Even though there is no way in hell they would ever fit.
January 8, 2011 at 2:38 pm
Ohh my! I could not believe that men right now are starting to wear skirts. Spare them. I don't find it cute looking. It's too way girly even if it's below the knee.

Real men can and should wear skirts!I am wearing skirted garments daily with shirt, tie and jacket, and even I did not like it first I am wearing it with pantyhose, stockings and nice panties because of my wife. She and our two daughters said if you want to wear skirts and dresses you must be aware of wind blows and people which want to know what I am wearing under as a man.And it should just look good under your skirt, and your legs should be covered and give a sense of tan because of my "cheese-colored"-legs, that would look ugly.So she went to different stores and shopped for me, came up with some pink and apricot panties out of women's department and a garter belt with stockings. She smiled and said it's better for your comfort – and for mine. Huh, I was shocked first time but after I tried it on it wasn't bad but felt strange. Today, after 7 years, 27 more skirts and 5 dresses, and wearing it every day I feel that most men missing something good on their body. The interesting thing is that I never got one bad comment, men mostly say nothing, women usually more open and give some words to me like "great, neat, looking good on you, terrific, etc." and only one time obiously women want to now what I am wearing under. I saw that three women out of a department store where waiting down at an escalator, talking and staring at me when I came downwards. I believe they couldn't see anything so they gave up.Since I am wearing skirted garments more than pants I feel much more "free", my family and my wife said I would look younger and happier, and I would joking much more.What shall I say more? This change turned to my best and everybody likes it, especially my wife.

I like men in skirts but it has done right. Mens skirts are very different to ladies, and that's okay. Picture #1 skirt looks okay to me, but handbag or new-English murse is way to big. Length of men skirts? I would say not as short as juniors with a minimum length of 17 inches (juniors starting with 10.5) for younger men, otherwise round about knee length. But we should not restrict because every man looks different in skirts like women. Mr
March 5, 2011 at 8:58 pm
Missing in most comments why men should NOT wear skirted garments. It is ridiculous what people think about it. I thought a long time people in America ore open minded, have a favor for creativity and be innovative. I looks like that I was wrong, I can see around the world the same movement by men going for skirted garments because it ismjust the beat and most comfortable garment for their body shape, but America???skirts have quite an elegance, have an own style which comes in un-countable possibilities, and pants are just covers for legs. Are men disposable commodities in case of fashion? Do they have to look so stereotype uniform? If you can answer my last questions seriously I could take some comments more serious, otherwise it is just a stereotyped saying without the ability to reason and think.
March 18, 2011 at 9:50 pm
It's just the head what blocks off new ideas. I like this idea and the creativity. Hopefully it will catch on because it is more than overdue. Nothing can be more boring as always the old same boring style for me.Mel
April 5, 2011 at 10:01 pm
I thought that many people would laughing when I wore skirts first time. No laughing at all but smiling, giving nice comments. Never I thought about that so many people waiting (mostly women) that men being more creative in case of dressing. It was just awesome and I felt a kind of new power in myself wearing skirted garments past 6 weeks.
June 2, 2011 at 7:48 am
This is hilarious. I can't imagine seeing men with lengthy skirts, well except of course when they do a prod. But me thinks they will look cute. Why not try it out.

Technially, the only universally accepted difference between a Kilt and a Skirt is whether the wearer is male or female.

I’m afraid the first guy looks ridiculous, the second one contrived and the less said about the third the better. I know what I’m talking about, I have four Kilts, men’s garments that I wear fairly regularly. The right length for a Kilt is just above the knee, otherwise when you’re out in the hills and it inevitably gets wet, the hem rubs on the tendons on the back of your knees and hurts like hell after a while. Wusses who only wear them indoors and so on don’t get this of course. AND the only thing to wear underneath is skin (tanned maybe) and, in my case, a bit of talc.
