The Fall 2018 menswear designers have new ideas for men.
They think that guys should be wearing skirts.
I’m here to tell you something right now. No. Just no. No in a thousand ways, shouted loudly. Screamed to the sky. No.
I like men. I like manly men. If they fix things and kill bugs and take out the garbage and do manly things, all the better. If they occasionally make me roll my eyes, I’m okay with that. If they seem fascinated with their own bodily functions I can deal with that, too.
I believe in the old adage – never the twain shall meet. I don’t want to be manly and I don’t want men to be girly.
When I lived in Chicago I dated a wonderful guy by the name of Mike. He was truly a great person. He was raised by a single mother who taught him lots of interesting housewife things, like removing soap from its wrapper and letting it get hard so that it lasts longer. That sort of thing. I have to confess that his Hints from Heloise occasionally drove me nuts.
Then there was Jack. I absolutely adored Jack. He was a pilot who flew the big honkin’ C-130 in the Air Force. Jack also brought me books of poetry and songs that reminded him of me. Honey chile, I have NEVER known anyone who was so romantic. I couldn’t even come close.
Would those guys ever wear a skirt? For a joke, yeah. That’s the only situation. They were manly men for all their homemaking abilities and romantic gestures.
How about you? What do you think of men wearing skirts? Or designers wanting them to?
