    Do you think it will soon be acceptable to the public to see men dressed in pantyhose, skirts...

    and heels? I can not wait for this to happen because men's fashion is now so boring.

    I go out personally to the store in my heels and hose and dress (or skirt/blouse outfit). I even do the makeup thing. I go to the biker bar and noone ever tries to pick up on me as they can tell I am straight. it is acceptable as even the police never say anything to me unless they have a question for me about something I may have seen in an incident or accident. It is almost as acceptable as gay marriage is becoming common.

    Yes, I think it will gradually catch on, as more men try it and find out how much positive reactions it gets from the women.  It really is no big deal. If you are nervous, start out with a denim, or khaki cargo type skort.Try it, you might like it                                                                                             May peace with all, jenisis21@yahoo

    I have been reading a lot lately (online) about mens skirts and other items traditionally thought to be female. I was very surprised to see that a lot of women like the idea of men wearing skirts and even more surprised at the number of men open to the idea. I haven't seen any dresses specifically for men but the point that men originally wore skirts and dresses (robes) is a valid one. Pants were originally invented for men (for the purpose of riding horses, as I understand it). Does that mean when a woman wears pants she is cross-dressing? Societal mentality has never been very logical.
    A company that makes mens skirts: is owned by the same guy who owns
    This is a site that sells legwear for men: pantyhose, tights, nylon stockings, etc. Their customers are professional football teams, firefighters & rescue workers, and professional athletes. These items can also help people with varicose veins. get that too. Also, I'd be willing to bet that wearing pantyhose is cooler for the crotch than underwear and skirts are cooler than pants. I think that women's approval & encouragement about this matter will go a long ways in making it more popular and acceptable.

    I would be fun to see men in those apparels. However, I feel it's necessary on special occasions or themed events.

    I think it already is.  I wore a dress, pantyhose, and heels today to get a haircut, go to a Dr's appointment, get a bite to eat, and run to the grocery store.  Not one negative comment.  In fact, I had two women tell me I looked great, and another said she really liked my dress.  Wear whatever you want.  It's all about confidence.

      Most guys remaining silent when it comes to new fashion. Skirts originally men's wardrobe anyway like stockings. so, what the heck?
      I wear it whenever I like, and when I like it, others like it too, because I show it to them. Always positive comment

    As women become more powerful in society, I think it will be more acceptable for men to have more fashionable choices. Women have been on a constant climb in the workforce for the past century.

    Men are looked down upon for choosing more feminine clothing, because society in the past has seen men as superior and women as inferior. On the other hand if women wear men's clothing, culture has seen it as an increase in their superiority.

    Acceptability is happening slowly, but I truly believe it will be based off of women's stature in the work force.

    Men should have the same rights as women to wear
    what they like, Its about time that men have fashion freedom.
    If more men would have the guts to do it, and they made
    skirts and pantyhose for men, I think it would catch on.

        They have had skirts and pantyhose for men for some time and it's slowly catching on, even high heels and makeup men are going back to as well.  Gender really has no place in fashion and clothing,

      I agree men should have the same clothing rights as women. I had a few women tell me they like seeing it and are glad to see someone wearing one. The Scottish kilt and Middle Eastern sarong are the beginings of today's skirt. Let's get over it.

    It will be, I'm hoping sooner than later. The history of men wearing skirts goes back as early as 3900 BC in the Middle East and Asia. I am for one am more comfortable in a skirt. Pantyhose and tights are warmer for my legs in the wintertime. For me the only drawback would be in the workplace where some coworkers and customers have been known to complain.

    I really hope so. I wear pantyhose with shorts and sandals to the store at night, but when I get back home I change into my demn. skirt   I like to walk around my front and back yard working in P/H and skirt, neighbor has seen me and the could care less. But I live in a small town and the only time it is accepted is during the Celtic Fair so I can go out in my kilt. Might be moving to So Calif  where I think there is a little more freedom. I get so jealous when my wife and I are walking and the breeze blows up her skirt and I am in pants burning up and she's  cooler, and she likes me in my skirt or kilt. She likes rubbing my P/H covered feet and looking up my skirt to if I am hard and ask me to get something to see my skirt front tenting out.
