While men wearing skirts might seem like more of a modern concept, believe it or not, men’s skirts have actually been worn since the prehistoric era. During those days, skirts were a common choice of everyday wear for both men and women for various daily activities such as farming, building, and fighting. Skirts in particular were the standard way of dressing in Egypt, along with wrap-around style skirts known as kilts, which most commonly went from the torso area to your ankles. As society and fashion progressed as a whole, specifically in Western Civilization, the concept of skirt wearing seemed to be divided into a “masculine/feminine” thing where girls wore skirts and boys didn’t (though skirt wearing amongst men is still common outside of Western culture).

Now, in 2023, the standards are slowly beginning to change. To get you ready for the summer we’re rounding up the best skirts for men that you can cop right now, but first, let’s take a look at some recent examples of the fellas doing skirts better than everybody else.

As we continue to evolve as a society, the concept of respective gender roles and expectations are slowly but surely beginning to change for the better. Whereas perhaps twenty years ago men wearing skirts and dresses might have been looked at as a feminine trait, those concepts and notions are being abandoned.

In the past several years alone there have been quite a few examples of prominent male figures and celebrities wearing skirts such as Russell Westbrook wearing a skirt to the Thom Browne Spring 2022 Collection Show, A$AP Rocky wearing a kilt over top a leather skirt over this past summer, and Brad Pitt rocking a brown linen skirt to the premiere of Bullet Train. Simply put, skirts for men are here to stay and we’re loving it.

Thom Browne has a whole section of their website solely devoted to men’s skirts, which is super cool. While all of them are equally great, in our opinion you can never go wrong with a solid black piece as it can be mixed, matched, paired, and styled with just about everything. The Super 120s are a low-rise ankle flat front pleated skirt that is slightly asymmetrical, giving it both a modern and vintage look.


2. ÉTALON Men’s Skirt
