Men in Skirts

This month my hubby was given the highest honor by our metropolitan issue of Skirt magazine. I'm sure most all of your cities have Skirt or a magazine like it. They are those free newspaper-ish monthly issues that spotlight local stores, trends, fashion, and the like. Ours is the Columbia/Augusta area.
Every month, the magazine chooses a man for their "He's So Original" piece. Mike says he really doesn't know why he was picked, so I'll give you my reasons. He's very active in our town's community. Tea Garden is a favorite store of many women around here. Also, I think he's pretty easy on the eyes!

And now for the moment you've all been waiting for...  
My husband - in a SKIRT!
Double-click on the picture to read parts of the article.

And yes, he is wearing MY Lilly skirt. 
(Thank goodness he couldn't zip up the back!)

  8. Great profile! And love that they got him to wear a skirt - too funny! My mom brought back a copy of Skirt when she last visited Charleston. It's a great publication. We have something similar here called "Underwired."

  11. This is wonderful...the accolade, the skirt itself and your husband's can-do attitude :) Definitely an honor well deserved!

    If Columbia made a men's flyfishing skirt...maybe they could get my James into it, lol. Best to you both, Lachlan
