Man-skirts Marc, really now?

I have tremendous respect for Marc Jacobs. He is so open about himself, about the way he designs clothes, about his worries, about his fears, about his insecurities, everything that really makes who he is, well, him. This is espiecially impressive considering that Marc deals in an industry that concerns itself with appearance and perception, and it seems everyone wants to be percieved as without fault.

Marc is unabashedly himself and I love that about him, he has transformed himself physically in the last few years, and his clothes are showing an edge and greater confidence, and that reflects his personal transformation. Marc’s clothes are less about “what can I do to make a splash?” and far more reflective of their designer’s moods, whims, concerns, and life: that is his great secret.

But, Marc is now wearing man-skirts. The hilarous thing is that The Sartorialist actually talked about this, noting that do we now have to consider what length is acceptable? I hope Marc is simply pushing the limits of absurdity, and seeing how much the fashion drones will follow, or maybe there is a certain limit as to where we can push these things?

    I actually don’t mind the skirts-on-guys thing too much. Unfortunately, though, that one looks too much like my conservative, frumpy business suit skirts that I used to have to wear. Something that looks more like a kilt, or a hakama, or something, you know, manly (!) would have worked better.
