Proportion of Skirt.

Introduction.
dot  To put on a skirt for a man can require a long research in the stores. That also requires to know some rules on the proportions. According to the dictionary, the word proportion means: "harmonious report/ratio of the parts between them and with the unit".

  Le nombre d'or en matière de proportion est 1.618. Ainsi si l'on divise une longueur de 100 cm par 1.618, on obtient deux segments: l'un mesure 61.8cm et l'autre mesure 38.2 cm. Cette proportion entre ces deux longueurs est considérée comme particulièrement esthétique.

Ideal proportion of the human body.
dot  It is considered that ideally, a man measures 7 times and half the height of his head.

dot  Foots : 1/2 head.

dot  For reasons of esthetics, the fashion drawing prefers longer figurines lengthened under the size.

Ideal proportion between naked part and clothed part.

dot  For the explanation of the ideal proportions, we will use figurines of height of 8 heads by forgetting the feet.If we divide this number 8 by the gold figure 1.618 we obtain the 5/3 proportion.

dot  The naked part of our body is opposed to the clothed part. This opposition create a visual relation. If this proportion respects the gold figure, it is harmonious.

dot  In this sketch, the dress represents 5 heads (bust: 2 + basin: 1 + legs: 2) while the naked part represents 3 heads (head: 1 + legs: 2). the proportion of the 5/3 is thus respected. If the dress went down to the top from the calves, we would have a less becoming proportion of 6/2 less close to the gold figure.

Ideal proportion of clothing between them.

dot  In the following sketch, clothing represents 5 heads (bust: 2 + basin: 1 + legs: 2) while the naked part represents 3 heads (head: 1 + legs: 2).

dot  The problem is to define the length of the jacket compared to the length of the skirt. If we divide this number 5 by the gold figure 1.618, we obtain 3/2 proportion.

dot  The jacket is worth 3 heads (bust: 2 + basin: 1) and the skirt 2 heads (legs: 2). We thus respect the gold ciffer.

Integrated silhouette.

dot  If we equip the naked part - by sticking, trousers, make-up, hairstyle, ... - the opposition between the naked part and the clothed part disappears. Visual contrast is founded only on differences of colours or texture. It will be then the relation of clothing between them which will have to be taken into account to determine the most harmonious proportion. Here are some examples:

dot  dark hairstyle + dark dress: 5 heads
dot  clear legs: 3 heads

dot  clear hairstyle + clear jacket: 5 heads
dot  dark skirt + dark stick + dark shoes : 3 heads

dot  dark hairstyle + dark sweet: 3 heads
dot  clear trousers + clear shoes: 5 heads

dot  clear hairstyle + clear sweet: 3 heads
dot  dark skirt + dark boots : 5 heads

Bonjour.
Il m'est difficile d'écrire une description de moi.
En avril 2018, agacé de voir la majorité des femmes en pantalon, je me suis dit "pourquoi ne porterais-pas la jupe". Idée qui aurait du me venir à l'esprit beaucoup plus tôt.
Au cours de mes recherches, je suis arrivé à une page du Sénat relative à l'abrogation de l'interdiction du port du pantalon pour les femmes par ordonnance du préfet de police Dubois le 16 brumaire de l'An IX.
Alors comme les femmes sont égales aux hommes depuis la constitution et ont le droit de porter le pantalon (pas parce qu’elles sont femmes comme j’ai toujours pensé et comme m’a dit une fois une jeune fille de gens de voyage), les hommes sont aussi égaux aux femmes et ont les mêmes droits vestimentaires.
C’est ainsi que j’ai décidé de porter la jupe (au féminin pour la variété).
J'ai toujours pensé que le port du pantalon était imposé aux hommes alors que les femmes pouvaient se permettre de se vêtir comme elles en avaient envie.
Pas question pour moi de porter à nouveau un pantalon ou un short sauf nécessité. J'adapte si nécessaire en fonction de mon activité.
