A Skirt Is The Way To Go For Men & Women
(Poughkeepsie, New York)
It is refreshing to see more women on the trail sporting skirts. Not only are they functional but they look great too.
If modesty is a concern then a nice skort is always an option. They are non restrictive, cool in the summer.
In the winter merlino wool is an option as is quilted, insulated options.
As for men, I am seeing more and more men sporting both skirts and kilts on the trail. I think this is a trend that will continue and I think it is great.
I know there is no shortage of opinions so here is one more. The skirt is not a gender specific garment. I understand most men will choose from an incredibly limited selection in the Kilt options. But they are very few with little choice.
That being said with skirts there are literally thousands of styles, colors and sizes already available that are marketed for woman.
As I said a skirt is not gender specific and therefore can be worn by a man. The right skirt on the right guy looks just as great on them as they do on us.
So go for it. It's just a skirt.
Today it is totally acceptable for a woman to wear any article of clothing that a man wears. A skirt should be an option that any man can enjoy for the very reason we wear skirts. Because we simply like to.
