Marc Jacobs Feels Good in a Skirt

Comme des pantalons.

Marc Jacobs isn’t wearing his company’s menswear. He’s been sporting skirts, which his company doesn’t make for guys. At the Marc by Marc Jacobs show, he took his bow in a plaid kiltlike garment by Commes des Garçons; he’d worn a black number the night before for the Marc Jacobs show. It’s not really a kilt, he explained. It’s kind of like a kilt and a short. Jacobs says he discovered his love of the skort during his design process: I did a lot more skirts in this collection for women than I usually dowe usually do a lot of pants. So I bought this one, and I discovered how nice it felt to wear. They’re comfortable, and wearing it made me happy, so I bought more. And now I just can’t stop wearing them. Will he introduce them in his next menswear collection? No.
