    Hey, I wore a bow-tie to work last week, I think this man is rocking that skirt!

    What an unusual outfit. But I must admit it does suit him very well. Great color and fabric mix.

    Love from London,

    those white soles are a bit too much- I’d like the shoes better without them

    Jean Paul Paula has always a great style as usual ! Miss his feminine touch.

    I just have to say the first thing I noticed were how perfect his eyebrows looked. It’s a thoughtful and comfortable look overall.

    I’m not a fan of any piece in that outfit.

    Have we so run out of ideas for men’s fashion that we have to wear skirts? I agree with others that he wears it well (he’d probably look pretty good in just about anything), but it still looks dumb. The high heel sneakers don’t smarten it up either (especially with too much white).

    Love the old school bomber jacket in contrast with the skirt.

    He’s just not good-looking enough!
    hooly dooly, what a man! and what a look!

    The touchtones of brown and blue amaze me in this picture.

    I am totally in love with this, such style and grace. The color contrast along with the fabric texture contrast completes the outfit and gives it a edgy look.

    Wow! A handsome young man with a daring look. A little wild, but impeccably clean. What could be more delightful?

    Okay, he is lovely. Just lovely. But I can’t take that skirt on him, if he lost it – the outfit would be PERFECT. LOVE the shoes, and love the way he’s workin it. Thank you Sartorialist – you always give us something grand to talk about! xo

    That is so unexpected! His look is nothing short of brilliant and your eye Sart, is as usual, prescient.

    I’m not entirely sure how a man wearing platform sneakers, an oversized bomber jacket, and a skirt manages to look so elegantly understated, but he’s pulling it off. I’m impressed.

    I love how controversial the skirt is among the followers. I think the look is beautiful, but love it when fashion is provocative.

    As a Scot I find it funny everyone to crazy about his ‘skirt’. Kilts suit anyone and are a classy choice for any occasion. Just cos it isn’t tartan doesn’t mean it’s not a kilt. Love!

    its fair for a woman to wear a skirt and not a man? sexism…. i think it looks great!

    it’s just gooooodd.
    love the “masculine” color-story and fabric choices coupled with the mix of otherwise”traditional” feminine piece. bravo on taking dressing the body beyond just a single, or mixed or non-gender.

    Anybody know where I could get a skirt similar to that (or equally simple but still cool) for a reasonable price?

    OOOH! Look a hot guy in a skirt. With great boots.

    So Givenchy!
    I like it very much but for me the brown piece under the teddy it’s not very right.
