Happy New Year 2019

Happy New Year

Happy New Year to all my readers. The weather has been very mild for the time of year,

so I'm still able to go out and about wearing short skirts and bare legs, as you can see

from the photo below, taken on 30th December, when the temperature was +10 degrees Celsius.

Asos and Zara offering skirts for men

Good to see some mainstream clothing stores offering skirts for men.  

Mostly they are being modeled by men who are also wearing trousers.  
Perhaps useful for winter weather, and many women do likewise, but once
I’ve put on a pair of trousers, I don’t see the point in putting a skirt on top:
it defeats the comfort benefit of wearing a skirt in the first place!

 Charity shops

For those new to wearing skirts, both men and women, I always believe  
the best starting point is the charity shop. There you you can try a variety
of styles at very little cost. Always remember to take a tape measure -
don't rely on size labels. Women's clothing sizes have changed over the years
and some of the stock in charity shops can be quite a few years old. Also the
previous owner may have shrunk the item, or altered the size to achieve a good fit.

The majority of the skirts I have were bought in charity chops for around £4 or £5 each. h

Here are a few of them:
