Men's Dress Worn By Women

And this was a common sensibility in the West, actually, untilll.... wait for it.... once again, the World Wars. The rationing of fabrics for uniforms caused coats, which before were typically knee-length, to be cut short... just like head and facial hair.
I do it more to cover my rear actually.

Quote: Heh, I tend to be opposed to any change which resulted from either of those godless wars. Same reason I prefer pocketwatches to wristwatches (invented in WWI for soldiers to more quickly check the time by flicking their wrists then reaching into a pocket and opening their time piece, like a real civilized man). If I were a smoker, I would also reject cigarettes from the same principle.
And brass buttons on sleeves was meant to be a deterrance against wiping noses on sleeves :)

There is a difference between a corset and tightlacing.
Well, I wasn't aware of the difference. I'm glad to be informed of this.

Ah, yeah. I guess that's not implied when I said "crotch area", but that's what I meant in my mind. Basically the area from the waist to the mid-thigh. My rear is too badonkadonk for women to handle.

If you are interested, wikipedia has pretty good articles on both.

Doesn't matter. As long as he doesn't sleep with a pipe or a book.

I see the pic and I'm laughing but I don't get it.

Do you call your grandmother an "old hag"? Do you call your mother a "broad"?

My apologies.
