For men who want to ditch their tie-dye tops and sweatpants post-pandemic but keep the comfort, a surprising new trend has emerged: the skirt. Skirts have been included in the autumn/winter collections of Stefan Cooke, Ludovic de Saint Sernin, Burberry and Jaden Smith’s MSFTSrep label, while longer skirts have been worn by the rappers Post Malone and Bad Bunny and the singer Yungblud. But it was Harry Styles on the pages of US Vogue who cemented the trend (in a Wales Bonner knitted skirt and a Comme des Garçons kilt), following other notable male skirt/dress moments (David Bowie on the cover of The Man Who Sold the World, Mick Jagger at Hyde Park, Kanye West in a Givenchy leather skirt). The trend is indicative of how the pandemic has unshackled men from their dress codes. And what’s more freeing to your legs than a skirt? “I want to celebrate the freedom of expression,” said Burberry’s Riccardo Tisci in February when he unveiled his menswear-focused collection, which featured pleated skirts and shirt dresses. “I love the idea of men in skirts, I find it very liberating,” echoes Ludovic de Saint Sernin. Mark Bryan, an influencer who posts arresting selfies to his 410,000 Instagram followers showing him posing in various skirts in different urban surroundings, said: “It offers me more than the traditional men’s trouser.” He said he receives very few negative comments (“about 5%”) about his attire when he’s out and about. The majority are positive. “I get a few women that will approach me and say I look nice,” he said. “They usually ask me where I get my shoes from. If a man approaches me, he will ask something like: ‘How can you walk in heels’?” For De Saint Sernin, the element of subversion appeals. “It’s just really fun, I guess, being able to wear something that usually belongs to womenswear, and at the same time keeping the look believable on a man.” https://www.theguardian.com/fashion/2021/mar/24/super-freeing-mens-skirts-emerge-as-pandemic-fashion-trend Call me old fashioned but I think this is weird. There's a reason why men and women have generally different clothes: different body shapes and cuts to fit said shapes and yes for good style-- which has long gone out the window. Real men. Simps.
