    I absolutely love men in skirts! I've never seen anything like these kind of bottoms before.
    nice grey mix.

    Love a man in a kilt but for the life of me, I can't figure this one out. Is it a kilt over a pencil skirt? That messenger bag is very cool

    This is like the perfect combination of layers, textures, colors and fit. I particularly like the cut and fabric of the kilt. One can see that it took some effort to put this together. One thing I would edit would be the "coins" on the messenger bag flap- they seem a little belly-dancerish to me. Jorge from WPB

    A combination of gangsta low rise with ambisexual style. It looks like this person has layered a skirt made from a man's trousers over clamdigger/capri pants. Felt sandals and black socks complete a look that I can only say is unique – Thank God!

    This look does absolutely nothing for male or female or any other gender.

    wish we could tell if it was one lower garment or two. shiny oxfords would have given an interesting authority to this very brave item.

  43. Libby K

    November 17, 2009 at 3:15 pm

    It's puzzling. The choices are carefully made with a subdued palate and a subtle mix of textures–the menswear fabric, the felt shoes, the dark metal coins on the bag. Nothing screams, "Look at me!" But somehow all together the look will inevitably attract attention.

    I wish there was an additional front view too! Ever since Marc Jacobs started wearing the man skirts a little bit ago my interest kind of grew. Does anyone know who makes this particular skirt? I need to do research. lol

    What a fantastic combination of textures… brave, bold and brilliantly youthful look.
    I wish i was able to wake up and look futuristic and fresh some times. I am going to work my way up to a mens skirt; but first i have to get felted shoes… just don't see enough felted shoes around.

    The grey bottom piece is certainly interesting, but it doesn't seem flattering. How were the other pedestrians responding to this man?
