Why men wear skirts – Top 10 reasons

Why men wear skirts – Top 10 reasons


Are skirts just for women and girls?

One old fashioned dictionary would say yes:

Funny thing is, western culture happens to be in a narrow window of time where skirts for men is considered taboo.

Thankfully, every now and then humans question why they do things, and fashion evolves like everything else. 

Let's get into the top 10 reasons why men have the AUDACITY.

So many truths here JCNY! Things that might not cross the minds of pants wearers. Alright, Ventilation is going up ^ :D


Oh yes. Besides “No wads of extra fabric in the crotch” (you’re welcome), how about super easy to pee (assuming a knee length or shorter skirt): hem up, bikini waistband down and you’re good to go (so to speak). Totally beats digging through a fly opening, past shirttails to get to the hidden undies before scraping out past the zipper. Make that #5.
And for #6: One word. VENTILATION.
#7: you can rock a high waistband without looking like an old fart (see: Tim Conway as The Old Man). Higher waistbands feel better, IMHO.
I’ll leave #8-10 to your imagination (Yes, that part of your imagination. Turns out guy legs are considered quite attractive to many…).
