So I've wandered around the house all day wearing women's clothes.

I find it reassuringly comfortable, and it makes me smile.
Want to make something of it?

Sugoi Mini Skulls Arm Warmers from that lovely girl at Minx.

Jo Burt has spent the majority of his life riding bikes, drawing bikes and writing about bikes. When he's not scribbling pictures for the whole gamut of cycling media he writes words about them for road.cc and when he's not doing either of those he's pedaling. Then in whatever spare minutes there are in between he's agonizing over getting his socks, cycling cap and bar-tape to coordinate just so. And is quietly disappointed that yours don't He rides and races road bikes a bit, cyclo-cross bikes a lot and mountainbikes a fair bit too. Would rather be up a mountain.

It's all a bit busy for my tastes - understated always floats my boat, what's wrong with a little black dress, such a versatile garment… so I'm told.

The green t-shirt/pink nails combo makes you look like a set of Halo wheels made flesh

Well I like it, although (technical point) do arm-warmers really count as women's clothing?

"do arm-warmers really count as women's clothing?"

well, like 'womens' or 'mens' hats, shirts, trousers, pants, jackets, socks, gloves etcetc it's all about the style..

they are all a bit 'fashion' arent they, I mean you could find those in topshop (perhaps!?)...next thing you will be wearing wet look/fake leather arm warmers.
Have to add that the pirate element brings somthing to the table though  1

What women's clothing have you been wearing and why can't we see it in the picture?

And no sign of any orange? (to go with the pink nails)  3

Interesting, but it'd be a whole lot edgier and more challenging to pre-conceived notions of gender-based cycling style if you were wearing one of these…

oh, i've got one of those, and raced in it too, several times, but not that colour because it would clash terribly

Is it padded, and if so did the shape of the insert make much difference? Might be on for one of those myself  13

it's just a wrap-around 'skort' so any padding is, er, natural, or whatever shorts you wear underneath, i'm not sure that "does a scotsman wear anything under his kilt" rules apply

Showing my ignorance, I thought a skort was a combination of shorts and skirt - so shorts with an added wrap around bit for those who feel to exposed in just shorts.

I'm confused now though, what's the difference between your skort and a normal wrap around skirt?

it's a technical microfiber fabric, with a rear stretch triangle so you can shimmy your hips in comfort through singletrack, and it has a little front pocket for puncture patches/condom/tampon (delete as applicable).

But aside from the condom it sounds like it is giving you less protection than a pair of shorts?
