Are You Man Enough to Wear a Skirt?
I get it, men should be free to wear what they want but when FLS saw these images of Thom Browne’s latest line for men we had to wonder who will actually wear them? Nipping into Bradford for a curry? Off to watch football at Anfield? Do let us know first so that we can come and film the responses you get.
Even if you’re working in an office, just watch the face of the HR Manager as they decide what to do, challenge you for breaking dress code and risk a discrimination case or manage the bullying/harassment complaint at the end of the day. And aside from looking a pillock, it looks bloody uncomfortable as well not to mention the Yorkshire wind whistling up places where it has no place to be.
And then there’s the whole Marilyn Monroe impression situation. Skirt around your ears, and your old holey Marks and Spencers y-fronts are on show. That is such not a good look, even worse when that’s the day you decided to go commando and now your meat and two veg are on display to the world to ridicule and post on Facebook.
Now, we’re not ones to create even more tension between us and those north of the border. We know that they call their skirts, kilts and that they are totally different even if they do look a little skirt like and it’s an old joke and just not funny so we won’t go there.
We try to be balanced here on FLS so bear with me as I try to summon up a reason why we might be convinced to wear a skirt…. nope it’s not happening. If you put a gun to our head and said wear a skirt or die this would be the one we’d choose at least it’s in ‘manly’ olive green. But overall we can’t think of a single reason why we might be tempted to slip one on and head out with our mates on a Friday night. Do though send us your photos if you do, we like a good laugh.
