Men’s skirt …. why not ????

Lifestyle 06/04/2024

Whichever rule said that men should not wear skirts has got to be one of the flimsiest around, made even more absurd now that its equivalent rule that women should not wear trousers has been quite sensibly abolished. The idea that men shouldn’t wear skirts is every bit as absurd as the old notion that women shouldn’t wear pants. In fact Scottish men are supposed to wear skirts as a part of their national dress. All Scandinavians won’t disagree to the fact that their forefathers – the Vikings, also wore kilts. Even the queen of England wants to see her men in skirts and so her guards wear a kilt as a part of their uniform. All Masai men, including a number of other tribes world over , wear skirts of some description, and nobody ever takes any notice of that, it’s just their normal attire. The wearing of skirts, kilts, or similar garments on an everyday basis by men in western cultures is, as of 2007, very much a minority movement. The wearing of a skirt is conventionally an ex-pression of a female role. However, people have variously attempted to promote the wearing of skirts by men and to do away with this sex distinction, albeit with little general success and considerable cultural resistance. But then obviously, rules telling you what you can’t wear are a bizarre oppression. Menswear designers of today are getting hooked on to the men’s skirt, so much so that their fascination with it is being manifested in more ways than one in the ramps of Milan, Paris London and New York. Even desi designers like Rohit Bal, Rajesh Pratap Singh, Raghavendra Rathore aren’t shying away from this revolutionary obsession of the new and bolder breed of men!

  1. As already said in the article above, the skirt is an unisex garment. Men already forgot it, and became uniformized by pants. It is time to think about and it is high noon to change – first thinking and then dressing. Clothes express personality, what could be a man wearing just pants express?
    Now they can, but it needs first encouragement and it is a challenge. but men should take it, NOW!
    Men should help each other to get out of their old dressing-style.
