Marc Jacobs And His Men Skirt Issues

  • Pin it

While continuing my investigation on all things fascinating Marc Jacobs, I ran into these candids with him and his partner, Lorenzo (we still don’t have confirmation that the marriage rumors were true, so I don’t assume a husband-title or anything…)

Sooo, Marc is faithful to his men in skirt believes, wearing a black buttoned dress (I hope it’s his own design, at least!) paired with a mouton coat and, of course, a Hermes Birkin! (the story continues after the jump!)

I love how he matched his coat to his beard and the dress to his Birkin. I’m not sure about the socks and army boots. What do you say? Shall we embrace this new trend? (photos via)

Here’s he’s again, sorry ladies: Axl Rose……that’s Axl’s stage look late 80’s, early 90’s. The skirt and that army shoes with the white socks. Oh well, back then I’d found it a fun look. But on Marc I’m not so sure? It makes him look kinda matronly?
No, I don’t embrace this new trend. There are not that many men that can rock it.

On a second thought its the coat that make this look matronly on Marc!

Oh Lawd have mercy, he looks like he escaped from a home and stole the clothing of one of the little old ladies who live there.

Ellington lol! I remember my grandmother had a similar coat only entirely black and shiny!

On a fun note – my husband was scrolling down with one of the boys in his lap. When the little one saw this picture with Marc Jacobs pointed loudly at it “look Daddy, a lady with a bag!”

…. how could we disagree?

Ah, and Adriana – you’re right, Axl was the first! Or the Scots? ;)

I love the man skirt, and it works because he makes it unisex and manly, also has anyone noticed the man clutch??

Antony Michael, skirts were manly long before Jacobs birth. Skirts are better for male’s anatomy – prevents against testicles overheating (do You know that it may happen even in freezy winter?) and are very comfortable.
It’s time to restore men’s skirts!
Axl was first? Of course, not. First men in skirts appeared about 75000 years ago, when clothes were invented.

I never said Axl was the first! He wore skirts for a while on stage.
And most of us are aware of history I believe?

Skirts fitting men very well, for sure much better than pants or shorts.
Watch men in pants in front of you walking and you know what I mean.
It’s time to come back to really nice clothes for men, too.

Tough I wouldn’t wear one, I don’t know why it is still an issue for western countries. Actually 2 BILLION men around the world wear (some kind of) skirts every day.

2 billion is quite a big number…

#13 kpriss on 05.23.11 at 11:06 pm

wow! 2 billion? had no idea they were so many! wow . again!

#14 mdinah on 05.24.11 at 2:56 am

yep, neither was I …
I was living in France some time ago and had 2 colleagues at work who occasionaly wore skirts .
it was a surprise for me given they were straight married men and we were at hospital(quite conservative ambient, for sure.) one was from Africa and the other one was a french doctor. later i learned that there are even associations for men wearing skirts…oh là là!!
you just sum up all Africa, middle Orient,India, several regions of Iran, Japan(traditional cloting) and some natives in America and you get the 2 billion….
amazing ,isnt it?
