Not My Style.

I was just out running errands.  Leaving the parking lot of Varsity Common shopping centre on 8th Street I saw a man in a long denim skirt walk out of Sobeys.  Before you ask, yes, I'm sure it was a man given his beard.  It would be interesting to know why he was wearing that skirt.  Personal choice?  A lost bet?  Or some other reason?  Whatever the case it was an odd sight for Saskatoon, but that's cultural.  In North America men don't wear skirts,  and even certain types of long flowing robes are likely to be a more familiar sight on a man than the kind of skirt a woman would wear.  This is something I doubt will be changing anytime soon.
