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  bust (of the chin to the size) : 2 heads.

dot  Legs (of the crotch on the ground) : 3 heads.
dot  Foots : 1/2 head.
Proportion of the human body in the fashion drawing.
dot  For reasons of esthetics, the fashion drawing prefers longer figurines lengthened under the size.

In the fashion drawing, a man measures 8 times and half the height of his head.

dot  Head (of the top to the chin) : 1 head
dot  bust (of the chin to the size) : 2 heads.

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

J'ai toujours évolué dans un univers de travail exclusivement masculin : Le BTP.
En dehors de mon travail de directeur, j'ai toujours aimé porter des shorts en été, plutôt courts, et j'aime les vêtements plutôt androgyne ; en l'occurrence, j'aime beaucoup les vêtements féminins et autres jupes et robes de ces dames. Je peux dire qu'elles m'ont toujours donné l'envie de pouvoir les porter à mon tour. Elles sont pour moi source émancipation masculine !
J'ai une sensibilité plutôt féminine, j'aime autant le Rock que la poésie et la littérature...l'aventure, les rencontres, la photo, les gens !
J'ai aussi une tendance à contrecarrer toute discipline imposée, révolutionnaire depuis toujours contre les inégalités et les codes. Juste le fait que ce vêtement invite à la liberté m'impose d'y réfléchir et de m'inscrire dans un style qui réforme les choses convenues. J'aime que ma façon d'être et mon habillement suscite curiosité et quelque fois provocation !
Je découvre aujourd'hui - par plusieurs articles de presse de couturiers de la jupe, stylistes, et puis par votre blog et ...je vois que les quelques derniers posts un peu provoc sur facebook suscitent les réactions : Ah le foutu regard des autres !
Par contre, tout ce que je découvre - enfin - sur cet univers laissé en jachère depuis la Révolution Française n'est pas vraiment dans un style novateur : Tartans et kilts écossais, tenues "celtiques", etc, ou alors le noir "punk".
j'ai vraiment l'impression (mais je n'ai encore pas franchi le premier pas !) que si ce vêtement sortait de ces caricatures vieillottes (je n'ai pas dit moches !) alors le vieux fantômes du déguisement et du travestissement tiendrait encore longtemps la barre haute aux idées reçues.
J'ai dit en début d'année que je tenterai l'expérience et je le ferai...mais pas n'importe comment. Je prendrai soin de ne pas choquer, en tous cas j'essaierai. J'ai vraiment envie que l'expérience devienne une réalité "vivable" au quotidien. Mon nouveau travail (gérant d'un bar qui se voudrait le plus possible alternatif) va forcément m'aider dans ma démarche.
En tous cas, je suis content de vous avoir découvert...
