Overview

What do Mick Jagger, David Bowie, Prince Charles, and Boy George have in common? These and other sharply dressed, sexually secure, 21st-century men are incorporating skirts into their wardrobes. In this provocative, one-of-a-kind book, Andrew Bolton traces the warrior origins of kilts and sarongs and reveals how, far from feminizing men, skirts actually reinforce their virility. Some 150 photographs illustrate this colorful salute to the growing numbers of the few, if proud, men in skirts.

Author Bio: Andrew Bolton, author also of The Super-modern Wardrobe, is associate curator of the Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. He lectures, writes, and curates shows on contemporary fashion.
