There were never any "good old days" — they are today, they are tomorrow
Next time, I'm ordering it four inches longer

I wore my new kilt to work last Friday.

California Pride

One of my co-workers looked at me and said, "Omigod, I have never seen you show that much leg before!"


Yeah, that's why the next SportKilt I order, I'm taking advantage of their "We can make your kilt a custom length, just let us know!" policy and getting it longer.

It's funny — despite bearing a strong functional resemblance to a prude when it comes to my own clothing, I'm totally comfortable with situationally-appropriate nudity. Take a shower at Burning Man on the shower platform in the middle of Camp Bhutan in front of god and everybody who might walk past (event population about 20,000 at that point, IIRC)? No problem.

But wearing a skirt that hits four inches above my knee where the hem keeps trying to creep up to five inches above the knee? Problem.

Aside from the kilt (which I was wearing bike shorts under), I pretty much haven't worn a skirt since being bike-mobile, since my preference for long skirts doesn't work well with biking. Gotta figure that out better.

It may be really damn short, but it's also Really Damn Hawt. Especially with those cyclist's legs of yours.

Looking good!

I prefer the length of Lexi's, although even that is a bit long. Then again, I get upset that short shorts aren't sold for men anymore and so I have to put up with 6" inseams.

Bloomers were one solution. A skirt guard helps a lot, I understand (been thinking about adding one to my bike).

And if you haven't encountered her yet, you might like Frances Willard's story. Annie Londonderry was an amazing woman also.
