A Manche Is.
If you searched Google, for the word manche. You would find a district in France near Normandie. the word here has nothing to do with France, but everything to do with men’s fashion. The term Manche is meant to describe a garment made for a man that is a reminiscence of the Kilt. The Manche is to describe any garment worn by western men, that is not pants, trousers, knee breeches, Bermuda shorts, or any apparel with legs and that resembles the kilt, sarong, lungi or Skort (which is what some designers are now calling it) I think manche is a clever name for such garment specifically for men; . ( As shown here ) This legless mode should have a global charge and free of ethnic association. Tha name Manche embodies masculinity. I feel strongly that a man should freely wear a legless garment, which should never be referred to as a skirt while carried by the man.
Because this male costume is considered an ethnic formality, ( The Kilt ) it is typically not seen as a rationally typical choice of fashion/fashionable attire for men. An idea in a state of rapid change. As a designer, I advocate this change. One I am sure is long overdue.
More men, than you can imagine are wearing, or want to wear this particular mode of style, without being considered feminine offbeat, or just not seriously fashionable. The manche is far from feminine. From a cultural viewpoint, this manner of dress has long been downed, by the most masculine of men throughout the ages; I want to speculate safely here, that by wearing a manche the man does indeed feel, manly and quite fiercely so. I’ll stand to argue this point with wicked delight.
Recently we are witnessing the emergence of a definite trend toward the manche. I believe firmly that this trend is taking hold and will only increase as more men discover the chic comfort in wearing a manche, kilts or any genre of its kind. Personally, as a woman, this is the kind of Men’s style that makes me weak at the knees and mesmerized by the “fashion sexy-ness” of it all.
Stay tuned; as I will be getting more into this topic in future blog post
For now, I would love to hear from you, tell me will you join this trend?
