Men and Pants

Okay, I need a little help here. Today when I walked into my favorite quaint restaurant, I noticed something that I've never seen before. Standing at the counter was a very large man. Probably at least 6-feet 4-inches. Masculine features. The odd thing about it was that he was wearing a skirt.

One may be wondering if the person in question was really a man. After all, initially all I could see was the back of this person. And I noticed the long, flowing, black hair, and yes ... that tan skirt. Perhaps the person standing at the counter was indeed a very tall and overweight female.

But as soon as he turned around to secure a seat, my observation was correct, and I couldn't help but notice his dark mustache.

Men just don't wear skirts in the small conservative town where I live. They just don't.

My husband was with me, so after sitting down at a small table together, I asked his opinion. The only reason he could think of was that the man was so large that finding comfortable pants wasn't possible. Men really do that when they have no other option?

So, my question is this: Why do you think this man dressed in this manner? I truly am not trying to judge, and please forgive me if I sound judgmental. I am just very perplexed as to why he would go out in public like that. Any thoughts?
