Ancient Hebrew, Greek, and Roman men generally wore some form of tunic. Ancient Egyptians wore a wrap skirt, similar to sarongs.
Both the Anglo-Saxons and Normans wore skirted garments, as can be seen in the Bayeux Tapestry. These fashions continued well into the Middle Ages
One of the most talked about trend this summer is men skirts. Designers like Givenchy,Ricardo Tisci, Yohji Yamamoto and Thom Browne all featured men skirts in their collections. Kanye West was the talk of the town when he wore a leather wrap skirt recently at the 12. 12. 12 benefit concert to help Hurricane Sandy victims … This was not the first time Kanye has worn a skirt, he is a women’s wear designer and does not seem afraid to push the envelope in his fashion style…. It is not accepted by many to see men wearing clothing that are considered for women such as skirts , hence all the talk of Mr . West in his skirt outfit… .. Even though its accepted in certain cultures will this be the new trend for men in fashion or will this look be for the brave at heart.. Time will tell…..
