Yes in the heat they're much more comfortable

Plus guys don't have to worry about having to put on pants cause they haven't shaved their legs and don't want to, don't have the time to-they could still wear a skirt. That would be incredible

Maybe it's just me but I've never found skirts/dresses comfortable -- even in 100 degree weather. I've always felt uncomfortable in them. So if I walked to work in 100 degree temps I simply would wear shorts and a tshirt and then change when I got there.

It does figure that someone who hates dresses/skirts (me ) would have hairless legs. I used to shave sporadically when I was in my teens and early 20's but I haven't had to shave my legs in close to two decades. It is great...even if I don't wear skirts.

Maybe I'm old-fashioned, but I find men in skirts to be a turn-off. I would never date a guy who wore a skirt, no matter how masculine looking the skirt is. Sarongs, yes. Kilts, yes. But a skirt, no. I know, double standard there, but I like my men being men.

As for women wearing pants, I don't think they are trying to be men, just like I think a man who wewars a skirt is not trying to be a woman. Pants can be feminized. Pants also come in handy on cold or rainy days.

And another thing about men wearing skirts: they 'll have to learn to sit differently. They obviously can't sit with their legs wide apart (like Edge on the cover of HTDAAB). I can see some men wearing skirts sitting obnoxiously. So, that would be a problem with men wearing skirts.

Just my two cents!

And carry my entire suit, shirt and shoes for 17 blocks? I don't think so!

I agree completely. I hate skirts.

i will admit to some jealousy of women in skirts on hot and humid DC summer days. they simply look much cooler than khakis or jeans (though, thankfully, since i have a "creative job" i can wear shorts), and i think men always benefit from some airflow down there.

Well...I was also thinking of the change of clothing plan from a smell reducing viewpoint too, but I suppose if your anti-perspirant/deodorant is really good or if you don't sweat a lot you might get away with it. I'd still have to change to be reasonably sure I was acceptable to be around so I'd have to either carry my work clothes every hot day or stash some at work. I might have hairless legs, but I do sweat.

Even if he was the best guy you'd ever met? Granted if he was stealing your skirts and/or wearing skirts 24/7, that could be a problem. I know what you're saying but for me a man being a man isn't about what he's wearing. And a man who is secure enough to not constantly adhere to certain stereotypes regarding what being a man is, I find that so attractive.

Kilts are hot but for me that depends upon who is wearing them

I have to shave my legs constantly, unfortunately. So that's the main reason I wear pants. Plus I don't think my legs are attractive-they used to be fairly decent, now not so much.

Like I said, I'm probably old-fashioned and believe skirts belong on women. Just the way some are designed - swinging back and forth - belongs on a woman's body than a man's body. I've seen men wearing skirts (not on TV), and it just looked ungraceful for the man to wear. I love to wear skirts, so maybe I'm just being haughty.

I don't know, as I said, I'm probably old-fashoined in some ways.

It's all relative, in previous times and in different cultures men wore knickers, robes, kilts, and other skirt like clothing.




Pansy seeking attention dandy?

Yeah true, maybe I'm too stubborn on my beliefs

Women have long since been wearing trousers due to the practicalities, and if skirts provide other practicalities (such as being more comfortable in hot weather) then isn't this argument a bit behind the times?! Should it even be an issue whether men want to wear skirts or not?
And the practicalities are besides the point anyway. The people that disagree with men in skirts must obviously see it as degrading and a threat to their masculinity to dress like a woman...?

People think men wearing skirts is silly because they're not used to it. Are they any sillier than neckties? They look completely normal to us. Why? Because we got used to it. I think a variation on the kilt with a pair of hot boots is a look that my eye could quickly adapt to. Bring it on.
