Things are bad enough
Do we really need this?

Skirts And Skorts For Men–Will Shoppers Buy?
At the trend-setting men’s wear shows this week in Paris and Milan, skirt-like skorts for men have popped up on some runways

Yohji Yamamoto’s version was so long, flowing and full that his culottes definitely straddled the skirt/pants line, while Yves Saint Laurent and Alexander McQueen showed more tailored styles in which the culottes silhouette was more defined.
Similar looks have been percolating in fashion circles recently — Mr. Yamamoto unveiled skirts for men at
his September runway show for the Y-3 label for Adidas. And, Marc Jacobs has been appearing at high-profile events and parties wearing skirts or skorts since early fall. The designer, who donned a skirt yet again for the Louis Vuitton’s men’s show in Paris Thursday, took a bow wearing a pair of tartan skorts at his Marc by Marc Jacobs runway show in September and just two weeks ago was photographed at a New York screening of “Defiance” in a skirt.
Why can't we just let men be men and stop trying to feminize them....
Other than hot Scottish guys their kilts, I don't want to see any men in skirts.
Digg this

Back in my Morris dancing days, we used to sing a song about a Scotsman that ended with the line, "Lad, I don't know where ye been, but I see ye've won first prize!"

If the choice is between Marc Jacobs naked and Marc Jacobs in a skirt, I'll take the skirt.

Pseu: that's a great line.
Wendy: yeah I too prefer marcy-marc jacobs any way but naked.

These culottes could be useful to Orthodox Jewish men.

Actually, the juxtapostion of male facial hair with a female skirt is rather a sick sort of way.
