Denied Shorts, He Wore a Minidress to Work

Britain is undergoing a heat wave, with temperatures in the 90s. Joey Barge of Buckinghamshire, UK, couldn't take the heat at work anymore and wore a pair of shorts to his call center job. Management, citing the dress code, sent him home to change. Barge returned in a mini-dress, which is compliant with the code. Seeing what Barge did, management decided to allow men to wear shorts during the hot weather. Yet he stayed in the dress for the day.   

Read the whole story at Mashable. For men wanting some air circulation during the heat, a commenter suggested the unisex fashions of Skirtcraft. They are expensive, but not nearly as expensive as Utilikilts. -via Boing Boing

Shorts were banned at the junior high school where I taught, so a bunch of the guys decided to show up in skirts! The principal just about had a cow. The guys, of course, argued that the girls wore short skirts, and they should be able to as well, since they couldn't wear shorts.

One of the things I hated in the Army was all out fatigue uniforms were long sleeves and pants. We actually were issued dress class B (tan) shorts, but never wore them.
