Ha. Well, you can think that, but 1. not a skirt, they were a kind of trouser; and 2. I'm in Japan and while uncommon, things like that are not completely weird here and draw on traditional patterns; 3. light hakama pants and other types of loose pants like that are amongst a very limited range of clothing you can wear if you want to be comfortable in 35+ degrees C and 70%+ humidity as it has been in Tokyo this summer - I've also worn a yukata quite regularly (I guess that would be a dress to you...) - and I wore neither in a work environment; and 4. I wasn't posting in CM because they wouldn't belong here and I am making no claims that they do. If I'd posted them here with a jacket and tie, you'd have a valid point - context is quite important.
I've already said that I got the same kind of response to wearing too casual moleskins with a smarter jacket - a fit I did actually post here - and those responses were right. And that's why I made the point I did to Kappelan. I apologise (to Kappelan) if it came across as too strong or rude, that really wasn't my intention.
