A Letter to This Guy’s Skirt

"What? All the cool kids are doing it!"

I never noticed this growing trend in Japan until recently.
“Skirts are not only for girls any more in Japan. There are also boys that wear “Skirts” in trendy cities such as Harajuku and Aoyama. Boy skirts are not brand new, they have been done by Jean Paul Goltier and Vivian Westwood, but this fashion is spreading as it gets trendier among today’s Tokyo boys of fashion. Long black skirts are the most popular, but some boys wear short skirts over pants. The most popular skirts are going for over $200.”

Dear This Guy’s Skirt,

Leave. Leave now. For your kind is not welcome here.

You are but a piteous clothing article, available in the trash cans at the back alley behind men’s clothing stores. Your fabric is commonplace. Your design is dreary. You are not worthy of shielding this man’s dangly parts from public view.

For some reason this guy chose you. He chose to wear you on the streets. Hell, chose to wear you around Japan. But that’s not it. He chose to wear you and let others take pictures of him.

Skirt, perhaps you provide some sentimental value for him.. or he was drunk in that back ally and resorted to wearing you in exchange for his puke stained pants, and you became his companion ever since. Who knows. The point is this: your very existence is an insult to the grand tradition of machismo boosting attire.

You are not seductive and made of leather.
You are not butt hugging and made of spandex.
You are neither provocatively embellished with patterns nor rhinestones.

The mighty Gods of Skirts know you lack sufficient qualifications to either intimidate other males or mesmerize the females by elevating and firming those buns while maintaining man’s rugged masculinity. They are not impressed. May thunder strike you for such incompetence.
Therefore, I bid you adieu.

From a rolling-on-floor-laughing and pointing individual,

Sarah Le

    That was disturbing, really disturbing. Honestly, put a warning discretion on this blog for mature viewers only.

    Surely you missed the significance of this image. This “skirt” you’re antagonizing is the first of many steps against the aging population/low birth rate catastrophe of Japan. This fashion is for a greater cause; once implemented correctly users will experience increase air circulation with its spacious design. This trend will be the new benchmark of masculinity!

    Does this mean they’d have to shave too? Hah.

    itsame, I don’t even know who you are LOL. I assume it’s Mario though. ITSAME.. MARIO!

    That would be a great suggestion. You should call the Japanese Embassy and bring on a new proposal for a free hair removal with every purchase of man-dress 😉

    Shave?! Psh… that really depends, would it be more attractive to the opposite sex if our legs were hairy in that? Shows off our masculinity and pubescence /flex. We should take a poll.
