The best skirts for men to buy

Style

Oscar Isaac rocks them, and so does Brad Pitt, so why can't you? In fact, skirts may be the must-have trend of the year for men. Here's what to buy...

Despite Oscar Isaac and Brad Pitt rocking them on the red carpets this year, skirts still bring the fear for most heterosexual men – for some very good reasons. If you were to take that look out in most city centres in the UK and weren’t obviously with a stag do, you may be met with a smidgen of hostility. Yet those who do dare to go there – and ok, this may well be easier for famous people with money to buy the best gender fluid clothing not just what’s left on the floor of Primark – but those with the confidence to wear whatever they like, are ultimately aspirational. It simply shakes things up, liberates you, challenges gender expectations and that can only be a good thing. A necessary thing in fact, as men escape from a narrow view of masculinity into a future of masculinities.

Here’s our pick of the best skirts for men.

01

Yohji Yamamoto graphic print midi skirt

Screamingly expensive but sets the tone for the gender-fluid punk feel (more Howard Devoto than Sham 69) that a skirt can bring a man. We like the white boots in this look too. Anyway, this is a rock solid winner for gigs, festivals, even five-a-side football tournaments (if you're any good, that is). £1000 from Farfetch

02

Oxford Men's Skirt

The label SNIDER have come up with this dadcore version of a men's skirt. Using 'a moisture-wicking tech fabric that’s wrinkle-resistant and lightweight. Details include a front zip closure, signature drawstring details at the side, and oversized side pockets.' Yes, very ' trendy dad takes the kids to the park', a sort of comfortably gender-fluid alternative to cargo trousers. As trendy dads ourselves, this is definitely one we're taking a punt on... £558 from Wolf &  Badger

03

NOKOCLUB George Men's Skirt

We like the Dune vibes of this one, the opportunity it provides to show off leg tattoos. Feels like an easy win. £110 from ASOS Marketplace.

04

H&M Pleated Skirt

Careful with the sizing here, these are on the small side, but for Yungblud fans or if you're our age, Axl Rose fans, this is a good route to take. Accessorise with DMs, studs and an attitude, for those work awaydays when you want to make an impression. £19.99 from H&M.

05

Palm Angels midi skirt

Another tartan number, though a little on the larger size for all frames. The question is: are you cool enough to wear it? The other question is: you'll wear pants under it, right?  £174 from Yoox

06

Thom Browne twill classic pleated skirt

Thom Browne are Oscar Isaac's go-to, and this smart grey pleated skirt will lend you a bit of an edge as well as being suitable for the office. Classy and cool. £1220 from Thom Browne

07

Thom Browne black and white Prince of Wales wool pleated skirt

Pricey but insanely cool and quality item - note how it's worn with socks and boots for a sturdy and refined look. One to get married in, or indeed be more marriageable material. £2260 from Thom Brown
