The kilt is a symbol of male emancipation

Trousers are a symbol of women’s emancipation

Clothing is a deeply political statement.  Here at Skilt we wholeheartedly support all our sisters in their right to wear trousers (or whatever else they choose – including nothing).

Wearing a kilt out in public is not always the easiest thing for a man to do.  It takes balls.  But really it is nothing like what women in some other countries still face.  Show your solidarity with them by wearing your kilt with pride.

Nick wears his kilt every day for Movember

As you probably know Movember is the mens’ health charity.  All around the world men, most of whom are usually clean shaven, grow a moustache from scratch during the month of November in order to raise awareness and cash.

Multiple Skilt owner Nick FfFoulkes has gone one better.  In addition to growing the tache, he is wearing a Skilt every day as he works as a kitchen fitter.  He’s not wearing a plain Skilt either … but one with kitties on it (ahh!)

Please show your support for mens’ health and Nick by sponsoring him here.

Nice one Nick!

We sponsored him … hopefully you will too

BBC News – Sweden male train drivers wear skirts after shorts row

A dozen male train drivers in Sweden have circumvented a ban on shorts by wearing skirts to work in hot weather.

The workers, who operate the Roslagsbanan line north of the capital Stockholm, have been wearing skirts to work for the past two weeks.

Employer Arriva banned the drivers from wearing shorts after taking over the running of the line in January.

But the company has given the men its blessing to wear skirts, according to local newspaper Mitti.”

Our thinking is that one should look decent and proper when representing Arriva and the present uniforms do that. If the man only wants [to wear] a skirt then that is OK,” Arriva communications manager Tomas Hedenius told the paper.

“To tell them to do something else would be discrimination.”

Driver Martin Akersten told the BBC he and his colleagues came up with the idea to wear skirts after they were informed of the new company dress code in the winter.

“We have always said that when summer comes, we will get some skirts and wear them. Its very warm weather here so we would like to wear shorts but if we cant then we have skirts for comfort”.
