Men with skirts

A new trend is emerging in Harajuku, a neighborhood where you can frequently find many of the urban tribes in Tokyo. The new trend is brought by a new urban tribe auto denominated: “skirt men” (スカート男子). There are still not many men wearing skirts but there are already two shops specialized in skirts for men. In this video that I recorded directly from a TV report a “skirt men” (スカート男子) goes into a shop where he finds many skirts specially designed for men.

    Well, the guy with the tie actually looks pretty good in his outfit.

    They all need to man up though:

    The fellow in the red leggings looks great. I’m not a big fan of the traditional Scottish kilt outfit but it’s good to see males moving away from trouser tyranny.

    It makes sense when men wearing skirts. Nothing wrong with that. It could be a real new fashion style if there would be more brave men around going out and off their stereotyped dressing.
    How looks a skirt on a man compare a man dressed in shorts?
    Just forget the shorts, it can’t compete with a men’s skit at all!
