It’s Official: Men Are Shopping For Skirts More Than Ever Before

For as long as there have been garments there have been men wearing skirts. And yet American hangups about gender have effectively killed the idea in a mainstream way, siloing pleated minis and swooshing maxis to the womenswear section. Even Jean Paul Gaultier’s spring 2002 tie skirt—what one might consider a perfect hybrid of masculin-feminin tropes—didn’t get the movement going in broader pop culture. But since the spring 2018 season, skirts have been gaining traction on menswear runways, and no one is more to thank for that than Thom Browne.

The kilt-loving designer has dutifully put a dude in a miniskirt in most if not all of his runways since. It’s paying off. Today’s Lyst report of the hottest items of 2021’s second quarter ranks Browne’s menswear skirt in the top 10. It’s the first time in Lyst history that a skirt has broken the top 10 for menswear.

You shouldn’t be surprised. Menswear aficionados are already embracing skirts of all styles and Browne’s devoted fans are really buying into his vision. “I feel like skirts have always been a ‘trend’ but to see people actually buying them and having options is a good step,” my colleague Christian Allaire, a chronicler of the movement, tells me. Or take it from Chris Black, the guy about town—and in the photo above—who is something of a TB skirt devotee: “It was definitely a step outside my normal bounds but one I would make again. It’s chic, simple, and comfortable—I also don’t mind all the attention.”
