Happily Married Dad of 3 Rocks Skirts and Heels Because He Wants To
“Yesterday, after I got home, I quickly took off stockings, changed skirts, shirt, and picked a comfortable sandal to go out to dinner with my wife,” Mark captioned one of his Instagram posts. “Clothes and shoes should have no gender.”
His other interests include coaching football and working on the ’67 Porche he has been restoring. In an interview with Bored Panda, Mark explained his love of wearing skirts and heels.
“I dress like this because I can. Just to be different. I have always admired the women that wore tight skirts and heels. Not sexually, but the power they presented. I don’t dress to be sexual, but to dress like any professional woman would. To me, clothes have no gender. I prefer skirts to dresses. Dresses don’t allow me to mix the genders. I prefer a ‘masculine’ look above the waist and a non-gendered look below the waist. It’s all about clothes having no gender.”
The husband and father is American but currently lives in Germany where he works as an engineer. And the thing he loves most about wearing skirts and heels are all the options he can choose from.
“With men’s pants, you have just a few color options: black, gray, navy, and brown, and no pants with prints,” Mark told Bored Panda. “With skirts, you can add reds, green, brighter blues, floral prints, animal prints, etc. Same with shoes, but then you also have many more styles and heel types. Plus you can wear open-toed shoes when the weather is nice.”
He also says while it may seem different to others, wearing the outfits he wears “feels no different” to him. “It’s just clothes,” he explained.
But how did this all start? Well, according to Mark, it started in college.
“Old girlfriend in college asked me to dance with her with us both wearing heels. We did this for more than a year. I got very good at walking and moving in heels. Throughout the years, I have worn heels off and on, but not with skirts. I just started wearing heels with skirts in the last 5 years. It was suggested that I would look a lot better in a skirt and heels than pants and heels.”
His family is also very supportive of his wardrobe and how he chooses to dress. “My wife often makes suggestions on what I should wear,” Mark explained to Bored Panda. “My daughter wishes she could borrow my shoes at times.”
Mark revealed that his favorite style of skirt is a pencil skirt and his favorite style of shoe is a 5-inch stiletto. “I just love the way they make me look and the feeling they give.”
And as far as the comments he gets while out in public, he doesn’t really pay it too much mind. However, he did say that middle aged women usually compliment him while men usually ask questions.
Moral of the story, do what makes you happy. If that means being a straight man, who loves cars, and also wearing skirts and heels, by all means, have fun!
