Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    Toe shoes are utilikilts for your feet.

    You know, somehow I guessed that would be the reaction.

    Mostly by association. The only person I know who wears toe shoes on a regular basis is a socially-awkward shut-in who almost never leaves the house and wears toe shoes in really inappropriate venues.

    I know some runners who wear them, but only while running.

    What is an inappropriate venue?

    Toe-shoes are nice for getting to and from a climbing wall.

    when I am getting snarky and post-structuralist i like to argue that the entrenched Ameri-european disdain for the kilt grows out of the negative social status the female gender occupies, and the inherent femme-phobia as a result of this behavior keeps people hatin' on "man-skirts"

    but what do i know i study bugs

  • Fashion trends are largely arbitrary but they do exist. You kinda have to accept that a kilt only works for a man if it is part of some specific ethnic outfits. Otherwise it looks ridiculous because it is so alien to contemporary male fashion trends and aesthetics in general.

    Togas really lack utility. In fact, they became a sign of nobility precisely because they lacked utility. If you were a rich noble, you could afford to carry around this bulky garment that really served no purpose except to get in the way of everything you did. Now, the tunic wouldn't be a bad thing to bring back.

    Which is precisely why they are so comfortable when you're walking around a lot. You get proper ventilation to your crotch region and you don't get swamp ass or chafed thighs and all that shit.

  • I was cool with the utilikilt until you said that. Now you are forbidden by galactic sanctions from wearing it near me because all I will be thinking about is how aerated your balls are.

    Oh ffs, I have been filling in a particular form for my visa and have been spending loads of time figuring out the hard bits, checking details and the like and now I find that they want it all to be in black pen, just after doing it in blue. How the hell did I miss that!

    Traditional Middle Eastern dress (note: "dress", not necessarily "dresses") is based entirely on this noble goal.

    The cooler you can keep your junk, the cooler you can keep your body. If you ever visit that sweaty armpit of the planet during the summer, you will instantly understand. You will understand it all!

    Chafed thighs from fabric is the most annoying thing. But I imagine better fabric would fix that.

    Also the hakama is super fucking comfy and I kind of wish some of its design would enter modern style.

    It is kind of funny that "modern style" is Western European. Not surprising though with the European supremacy for so long.
