    Porter Square: on a black fixie wearing a black manskirt

    Fashion seems to come up a lot on this forum, from shants to what constitutes metrosexual cyclist attire. Yesterday, I saw a dude waiting at the light outside the Porter Square T station. All black (taped) fixed bike, wearing a black skirt (kilt, one might say, but I'll call it a manskirt). I'm wondering what you'd wear under that skirt. Tight bike shorts, in my opinion, would cancel out all the great benefits of wearing a manskirt. Are you on this forum, sir? Any other manskirters who can enlighten us on the joys/pitfalls?

    ALthough traditionalists would skoff, I wear boxer briefs under my utilikilt usually. preferably dark colored ones. My kilt is a bit shorter than the traditional ones, and not everyone wants to see my dangly bits. So I wear undies out of common courtesy.

    I personally think kilts are hot, if the guy has nice legs. And riding a fixie I assume he would. Yay, kilts!

    This thread is nothing without photos.
    Boogers are mucus (myoo-kuss).
    Mucus is the thin, slippery material that is found inside your nose.
    Many people call mucus snot.

    I saw this dude at QCR in SF last year...

    Ode to the after work nap ( ride your bike instead)

    Ode to the nap
    The evil, evil nap
    It lures
    you succumb
    But only with good intent
    Shortly I will rise
    But you do not.
    Do not succumb
    To the evil, evil nap

    My buddy wears a kilt when he rides sometimes. I thought he was trying to be a fashion queer (part truth) but he said the kilt actually has a purpose. It lets all of you breath, keeps things fresh down there. He used to get bad rashes from riding alot but doest get anymore. On the downside he now gets cat calls from truck drivers.

    if hipsters can wear shants, then metrosexuals should be able to wear skorts.

    Kilts are fine, as long as they are not mini-kilts.

    But as to the tone of the OP, I'll say it again: BikeForums is not a classified "hook-up" personals board.

    If you want to meet the guy, try craigslist or something. Seriously.

    Given the postulate of "going commando":

    Do you, like, tuck the back of the kilt underneath you or just drape it all around like a lampshade?

    Will resting your moist tackle on a brooks saddle cause it to break in any sooner?

    Whoa there, Mr. Misinterpretation! I'm not trying to hook up with this kilt-wearing dude or any other dude for that matter. Just interested in the manskirt mentality. I only posted location/bike details because I know there are a lot of cambridge area readers of this forum.

    As a practical matter, how does wearing a kilt/skirt/whatever work out in the saddle? I've got a Mountain Hardwear kilt that is the best thing ever for hiking, but it seems like I'd be flashing people left and right riding in it...
