    There are certain ways in which clothes are cut for male or female bodies that make them fit better/look sleeker, but 01011010 has a point.

    Probably one of the reasons why we don't see a lot of men in dresses is because they don't make a lot of men's cut dresses. Which is a damn shame... although, it's probably not the main reason.

    Hmmm, the weapon hiding potential of wearing a dress, especially one that's not tight (I'd hate a tight one ><*).

    I accept no responsibility, what so ever, for the fact that I exist; I do, however, accept full responsibility for what I do while I exist.

    True. There have been cultures where male garb involved robes, shifts, skirts, etc.

    Then again, there was still always some sort of distinction in the culture between men and women, regardless of which clothing was assigned to each gender.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    Even Woodrow Wilson wore a frock coat.

    Personally, I'd like to have one, but then I've already demonstrated little concern with gender conventions, so that shouldn't be a surprise.

    I can just keep noting that it is men's wear anyway.
    sadly the origin of Frock is way earlier....
    frock definition |Dictionary.com

    [Origin: 130050; ME froke < OF froc < Frankish; cf. OS, OHG hroc coat]

    Frock coats are a relatively new invention

    See guys cross dressing.

    I just get confused around where with guys dressed as girls.....
