Hey I-A-B guys--if this sort of make fashion became the norm, would you wear one of these outfits or still no?

Just in case anyone looks at a photo of a painting or sculpture and thinks it`s a medieval Scotsman wearing a kilt:

Look at the whole garment, not just the hemline.

Scottish people, like many people in many places at many times, often wore a dress (usually with other clothing due to the temperature in Scotland). It might look like a kilt, but it isn`t.

Cue people raging because I called it a dress. It`s a dress. Don`t make the mistake of applying modern gendered dress codes to the past - dresses were not always feminine.

[quote]If by "quite recent" you mean 400+ years ago, I will agree.[/quote]

They`re 17th century, so not over 400 years.

That is quite recent given that they`re so often depicted as medieval or even earlier. 400 years ago is quite recent on the scale of British history.

"when in fact they`re quite recent"

If by "quite recent" you mean 400+ years ago, I will agree. If not... d`oh! Think again.

Nah, a lot of people from other countries believe it. Like a lot of people believe that kilts are ancient when in fact they`re quite recent. There`s a lot of misinformation about Scottish and Irish history stemming from nationalism. Some people even think that Braveheart is a history rather than a collection of lies to promote and profit from nationalist prejudices.

"Trivia for you, kilts were invented in Ireland."

You must be Irish, `cause only the Irish keep pushing that old lie.

@OldOllie first of all...they look different. The officer tunic is more like a coat than a dress. Look at that uniform on Picard, it looks ok, i mean i would wear it.
On the other hand you have that on a man with shaved legs..how can that be official. Also, short sleeves.
Even if it was some kind of uniform how would that go: "hey..i`m going to dress formal today", leaves the room, "i have a feeling i forgot something...hmm ... oh..right... pants!" (and presumably underwear).

I would love to have the comfort of a skirt. nothing squashing and squeezing my balls, no temprature rising etc. But nothing above the knee. I`m not a slut you know...

You have to feel for this guy. He never made it big as an actor. He`s only remembered as "the guy in the mini-skirt". What a claim to fame that is. His mum must be so proud.

@skytz1337 Correct me if I`m wrong, but isn`t that just a Starfleet officer`s formal tunic with no pants?

I don`t understand. What`s so weird about Sarah Jessica Parker modeling dresses.

I gotta say, kilts are way more comfortable than pants. Makes sense, trousers have all those seams gathered up, pinching and binding your most sensitive bits. A kilt let`s you have some room for comfort.

Here`s a Scottish barstool.



Trivia for you, kilts were invented in Ireland.

No, I wouldn`t wear one of those outfits...

...because they don`t have useful pockets.

Also, trousers are more practical. Especially around here, because it`s rarely hot.

I wouldn`t care about the gender aspect of them, though. Gender is a silly idea. Gender is mostly just fashion anyway and I don`t care about fashion.

The middle dress is very close to being a Roman tunica, which was the almost universal garment for Romans regardless of age or sex. This would have been considered a very masculine style because of its length - men wore them short, women wore them long.

Gender isn`t very real. It`s mostly just made up, which is why it varies so much from place to place and from time to time.

unless its at a live performance of the rocky horror picture show or i get really drunk on halloween again... maybe. i can understand the appeal of dresses, its just so liberating down there, the cool breeze and all. i dont think any of these particular dresses for men are attractive though. the gray one would look damn fine on a woman with the right body. you know what? no, men do not have the legs to wear dresses. end of story.
