I don't think you're "old fashioned" at all, it's just what you like and prefer and are used to. Same here. I like and prefer and am used to so many other things that really aren't all that important in a bigger picture. But that skirt wearing guy could turn out to be the one. You can always compromise on the skirts just like you can on other things, perhaps.

Gerard Butler in a skirt is still Gerard Butler. You don't see him walking around every day, tragically . I went on that skirtcafe and he wasn't there either.

"cramp the male genitals"-I find that funny for some reason

(AP) Wash. letter carrier going full kilt ahead

By DAN CATCHPOLE, Associated Press WriterThu Aug 7, 5:02 AM ET

A 6-foot-tall, 250-pound letter carrier is campaigning for the right to take off his pants. Dean Peterson wants the U.S. Postal Service to add kilts as a uniform option for men.

The idea was soundly defeated in July at a convention of his union, the 220,000-member National Letter Carriers' Association, so Peterson knows convincing management will be an uphill struggle, but at least he'll be comfortable in his kilt, or Male Unbifurcated Garment.

"In one word, it's comfort," he said.

With his build, Peterson said, his thighs fill slacks to capacity, causing chafing and scarring.

Peterson, 48, has Finnish and Norwegian ancestry but not Scottish. He began wearing kilts a couple years ago when his wife brought one back from a trip to Scotland. (A spokeswoman for Britain's Royal Mail said kilts are not allowed as part of its letter carrier uniforms.)

Now Peterson wears them everywhere — to one son's football games, the other son's concerts, shopping and gardening.

"It's the difference between wearing jammies to bed and wearing your work clothes to bed," he said.

Before the convention in Boston, Peterson spent his family's $1,800 economic stimulus tax rebate to mail about 1,000 letters and photographs of him wearing a prototype Postal Service kilt to union branches in every state, Guam and Puerto Rico.

"Unbifurcated Garments are far more comfortable and suitable to male anatomy than trousers or shorts because they don't confine the legs or cramp the male genitals the way that trousers or shorts do," he wrote. "Please open your hearts — and inseams — for an option in mail carrier comfort!"

The union's executive committee recommended disapproval, saying there was not enough demand for kilts to be worth the bother of the resolution, and delegates agreed by a large margin.

But Peterson said there are plenty of approved uniform items that very few mail carriers wear, including a cardigan sweater, vest and pith helmet. He said many convention delegates did express support after his resolution was voted down.

"I got so pumped up after being at such a low that I'm taking this to the next convention in 2010 in Anaheim, Calif.," he said.

Right financeguy, because those two clearly encompass the entirety of men who would wear skirts.

Convincing argument!

I'm starting to think that this forum is completely lacking in any sense of humour, which is a pity.

Perhaps it's just my love for Classical uniform, but I always thought a skirt or tunic was more appropriate for a man rather than a woman. It just makes more sense to me.

I used to see guys in skirts at Grateful Dead shows, quite often. It's so much more pleasing to twirl in a skirt than in shorts!
