Kilt, Farquharson tartan

    Daves Skirt, Barker Tartán Rojo. With permission from  


If not too keen on a kilt, or you simply want more variety, a skirt might be a possibility. On for example a hot summer day, an appropriate skirt, to be worn instead of shorts, could even make more sense than a heavyer kilt.

Man skirts are to buy, but they are still few on the market. Some very good ones, you might get from Spanish On top you see a tartan skirt from the Daves Barker collection.
You could also ask a tailor to make you a skirt according to your wishes, or you might be that gifted that you could even design and make one yourself. Or perhaps your wufe or girl friend could and would. By definition it should be a man skirt.

Alternatively, you might go looking for an appropriate skirt in women’s stores, where you might be happy to find one, which by design, fabric, and colour is manly (enough) and available in your size. But considering how feminine women's fashion has become, it shall be difficult, if not impossible.

On the two skirts gallery pages here you'll find examples of tailored and self-made man skirts.
