Sweden: Is this a new trend in men’s fashion?
A dozen male train drivers in Sweden have circumvented a ban on shorts by wearing skirts to work in hot weather.
The workers, who operate the Roslagsbanan line north of the capital Stockholm, have been wearing skirts to work for the past two weeks.
Employer Arriva banned the drivers from wearing shorts after taking over the running of the line in January, but the company has given the men its blessing to wear skirts, according to local newspaper Mitti.
However, design experts are already discussing whether the Swedish train drivers are staring a new trend for men’s dress. Watch the video and decide for yourself whether you think you like to see more men wearing skirt, or you think they should rather go back to wearing long pans and leave the skirts to women.
