lol @artishard, what a homophobe. Get out of NY, asshole!

Shah's hakama fit is great. Maybe it's the muted color palette and better shoe/shirt pairing, but it really looks good

Teger, are you suggesting that we all... check our privilege?

hey good morning! I'm glad I could provide some material for lively discussion. :-) I totally agree that the combo is not that great and said it a couple times. To Who's point, I actually did have some gladiator sandals on earlier and a big overshirt which looked a little better. It was just freaking hot yesterday. I wasn't trying to provoke anyone or make any kind of statement about gender issues. Just trying out something new. I live in a city where you can see dudes in assless chaps or in full drag at the local Starbucks. So this won't raise too many eyebrows, but I agree it's a miss. But, I do think it can work in the right context -- either with different elements like I mentioned before, a structured military jacket or something hard to offset the soft. In the end, I think this piece is best with a different person, someone who has a more fierce disposition. Someone with full arm tattoos or piercings maybe. I have two other hakama pants which are basically the same pleated wide leg design but are gathered at the ankle creating a more traditional "pants" shape. It's funny that just that one tweak really changes the tone.

fwiw, here are a couple images of the same pants worn differently just for reference. edit: yes, as catfish said the styling is much cooler.

I think the further you dress from the norm the better job you have to do off "selling" your look. Looking at the runway photos, you get a sense that the models (well stylists probably) understand this and those looks fly.
It's well within the right of a forum member to say, basically, "Im not sold on fit." It appears Julien did just that (which I agree with). Seems like a lot of shit then got projected onto him, which probably was unwarranted.
Anyone who's been to any number of Dead shows or multi day reggae concerts has probably seen many man skirt outfits. Id say many are just more dumpy than they are challenging to our cultural rigidity.

Damn these look a lot better in straight black.
