Fave Pic | His Skirt

Are Scotsmen by default more amenable to wearing below the waist garment that does not separate the legs? Ewan McGregor appears in the latest issue (No. 10) of Fantastic Man in a skirt rather than a kilt. Has Obi Wan transgressed a gender code? The Comme des Garcons pinstripe wrap hanging above feet shod in vintage Converse All Stars looks nothing like traditional Scottish highland wear. It’s not knee-length, it’s not in tartan, and, by the looks of it, not pleated in the rear. Yet nothing of this long skirt has diminished Mr McGregor’s masculinity. Leaning astride a plastic garden chair, he looks as comfortable as Sean Connery wearing authentic Gaelic dress, banishing rather convincingly the supposedly natural link between clothing and gender.
