Men's Department


I entered a shoe store and saw a pair of sneakers that caught my attention. I tried it on and liked it. As I was admiring this pair of shoes on me, I noticed that everyone around me were guys. I was at the male section of the store. I took off the sneakers and returned it on the shelf. I went to the female section of the store and found no pair of shoes like that. I was disappointed, but I knew I wasn't going to leave the store without that pair of sneakers. I bought it. At work, a friend admired the sneakers. I had to confess that it was guys'. He said, "you wear it well. I don't think I can pull off girls' shoes like that." I was like, "No you can't" and we laughed.

Later that day, I watched "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" and a guy was rocking a pair of Gucci heels. I couldn't close my mouth due to the shock. All I kept thinking was, can that be comfortable? If the pair of shoes wasn't comfortable, he hid it well. Then this experience got me thinking about how it wouldn't seem too unusual to find a girl wearing guys' pants, ties, boots, and so on. Of course we call them tomboys. What about the guys? I had a friend that nearly strangled me when I told him I loved his skirt. "For the fourth time, it is not a skirt, it is called a kilt," he screamed. But Givenchy showed skirts for men in Spring/ Summer 2011 collection. Is the line that divides male fashion and female fashion getting blurry? What do you think?
