There's a growing trend of guys wearing skirts now in Japan. No, they're not kilts, either. They're long -- angle length, and they are seen as fashionable, strutting their stuff in fashionable places like Harajuku and Aoyama.
It's actually popular enough that designers are jumping on the trend, selling their own versions. A Yahoo Japan article says that a popular piece goes for 20,000 yen (about $211 U.S.). An entry on Japanese fashion site Fashionsnap.com features an image of one such "skirt boy," dressed in a A-line style black skirt, seen above.
So, guys, would you rock a skirt? Even if it was "in" and stylish, and people were dropping $200? I like when girls' skirts blow up, but this case would be kind of trappy from behind.
Are you supposed to shave your legs?
