You know what we need to bring back? Tunics. They’re a better summer option than either shorts or dresses because 1) shorts are nonsense wear and 2) not everyone wants to wear a dress, but a tunic combines the chill androgyny of shorts with the nether-ventilation of dresses. We could wear them Roman-style with a belt and sandals. WHO’S WITH ME.
@alpine_thistle what about skirts?
@alpine_thistle I’m in.
@alpine_thistle why are shorts nonsense wear though? They’re like skirts except you don’t have to worry about people seeing your goods if you sit wrong.
@lindentreeisle uncomfortable and silly-looking IMO
@alpine_thistle tunics are alive and well in the subcontinent of india. we call them kurtas, but they're not quite androgynous. still v good and highly recommended, tunics are the shit!! :)
@y0x3y this is exactly what I want!!
@alpine_thistle I'm not sure where you are but pretty much any indian clothes shop will sell them. glad I could help :)
@alpine_thistle I'm on this. But can we get junics??
@alpine_thistle but what about pockets? Got to have pocketses.
@MightyBigCar always pocketses
@alpine_thistle I'm regularly wearing a kilt these days (with pockets!), but it still involves the tightness, and therefore hotness, of a belt… I'd definitely try a tunic, or even a toga!
@alpine_thistle H*ck yes tunics rock! *AND* I'd be able to gird my loins if absolutely necessary!
@alpine_thistle at my age I‘d prefer a toga. Those Romans sure had a great sense for fashion.
