Men in Skirts

In ages past men wore skirts, and I must confess that I like them. Was it not for my job at a conservative university, and were I to have been in a more creative career, I would definitely have enjoyed a much more artistic expression in my daily wardrobe, including some wrap-around skirts and kaftans. 

Artist and fashion designer Rick Owens sports interesting skirts and kaftans for his Summer 2012 Men Collection.

I also like men in skirts. Kilts, lava-lavas, etc. do look good.
I have gone to some contra-dances in New England and there were many men in skirts. Some were kilts, but others were regular skirts. A friend I had in college goes to those dances regularly and owns 3 skirts and always wears one of those to the dances.
In Myanmar/Burma I saw all the men wearing a type of skirt that was a wrap.
It is too bad they don't allow more diversity in professional dress. Yet becoming a professional in a non-artsy profession puts us into "uniforms".
I just got some new ear piercings (got 5 in each ear now) and I have wondered if that would be OK professionally. hmmmmm
