Gender Role Reversal - Men's Fashion

I generally limit my posting to once per day, but I'm in a really good mood tonight, so you all are getting a look at a series that I've been working on for the last few days.  I'm not sure how any of this is going to go over, so I guess I'll just dive right in.

Following is a short history of men's workplace fashion. 

From the early 20th century until the early 21st century, male fashion remained relatively unchanged.  Suits consisted of a jacket, collared shirt, tie, and flat shoes.  Sometimes, men would wear vests as well.  Hair was typically worn short, and men often wore beards and mustaches.  Depilation was practically nonexistant until the early part of the 21st century, when men began to prefer smooth chests, backs, and legs.
 

 As the 21st century wore on, men's fashion began to change subtly (as did the idea of the ideal male physique - more on that later).  The key differences, aside from a different cut to accentuate the changing male body, were a lack of a tie, and the addition of high-heeled shoes.  Very few men wore mustaches or beards, and most considered body hair removal a part of their normal daily routine.  In addition, long hair became a popular style.
 By 2036, most men eschewed the traditional collared shirt in favor of a more revealing, low-cut blouse.  Long hair, high heels, and the afore-mentioned grooming habits continued to be popular, and many men began to use makeup to hide facial flaws and blemishes. 














By the middle of thet 21st century, the skirt had become a necessary part of the male wardrobe.  In fact, skirts and dresses, by this point, were worn almost exclusively by men.  Women had long since abandoned the garments in favor of more comfortable, practical clothing.  In addition, men had begun to wear flashier, more decorative jewelry.   Finally, it became almost impossible to find a man who hadn't taken steps to permanently halt facial and body hair growth.












 

Until the mid-2060s, men had favored relatively colorless attire.  However, that changed almost overnight when men began to wear skirts and dresses in every color imaginable.  By this point, the modern businessman had completely abandoned the notion of wearing trousers.  The traditional suit was buried in the past.



 
 

 
Twenty years later, the modern man had completely tossed aside the conservative, knee-length skirts of the past in favor of the flirty, masculine styles we know today.

    2. From what I've seen over the last 50 years it's working like this, think about it, it started back in the late 50's early 60's what did you see? Well mens Perfume started followed by ID Bracelets and boys got their first doll call GI Joe that was years later followed with Cabbage Patch Kids Dolls. Remember the bight colors the guys where wearing and the days of Dico when men started wearing high heels. Look at today men are starting to wear skirts/kilts they have a mens line of makeup and again men are starting to wear woman's high heels.

      All over the world men are taking action and changing the fashion industry tho ever so slow now but it's all over the world from Japan to Russia and every where in between.
      According to a video report from Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC), male-to-female crossdressing is exploding in Japan and "is becoming more mainstream in a society that once had rigid gender lines."

      In the EU men are using purses or man bag's and high heels are stating to show up from the Ukraine to the EU to the United States men in high heels.
      Technology changes men and woman too.

      We don't need hunter men to be Hunters and Gatherers any more because technology has changed this too. Men are still acting like Neanderthals and need to be Emasculated, no not (castration) but an improvement in the way they think and see woman, men raised to think more feminine and less aggressive and softer in the way they think and act.♥ Woman of today have changed in so many ways but still have along way to go in the way they think of their self's too. Woman don't need men to protect them or hunt for them any more, Technology has changed this so if you see a nice guy talk to him even if he is wearing a dress and high heels you may fall in love with him after learning he has a feminine side his self, think of the things you both could do together.
