Don't really know what I think about this. Sure, if women wear menswear, why can't men wear womenswear? Yet I don't totally agree with it. It makes me wonder if we will be able to tell men and women apart twenty years from now.

Wow. These last 2 years or so I just thought I was contributing to Keep Portland Weird while rebelling against my longterm style of 501s and odd printed T-shirts. Since then I have been hitting the women's sections of my favorite resale and thrift shops, looking for those 3 or 4 out of a thousand that wouldn't look silly on me. Of course a lot of my inspiration has come from Chictopia.

Wow you guys are amazing! I wonder if there is Fashion Literature for College, because you guys define that, haha. You guys can be professors ; P. But yeah, as for dresses, I totally dig them on guys, as long as they are confident and not ashamed. After all, fashion... is about confidence, no matter the garment-type. Great as always!

WWOOWWW!!! GREAT ARTICLE!! THIS IS TPTALLY RIGHT SOMETIMES MENSWEAR IS SU JUST THE BORING SAME ALMOST EVERYWERE AND IT WOULD BE NICE TO EXPAND THE POSSIBILITIES AND I THINK THAT THIS WILL BE HARD BUT WITH THE TIME PEOPLE WILL SEE IT AS NORMAL AS SEING A GIRL WITH A DRESS AND THIS WOULD MAKE A GOOD IMPACT NOT ONLY FOR EQUALITY IN FASHION BUT EQUALITY IN A LOT OF OTHER IMPORTANT THINGS... LOVED IT <3

Androgyn, dresses for men do not spell equality in fashion, an industry characterized by misogyny and racism. 8|

Great points! That's definitely a valid and true concern, but the equality here is more about an equality of options and variety when dressing. Fashion has its fair share of misogyny and racism, but that can also be attributed to society's effect on fashion (and on all other industries as well). This dresses trend for men is a step in the right direction to understanding that and moving forward.
