Mark Bryan, an American robotics engineer living in Germany, wears towering high heels and skirts every day to prove “clothes have no gender,” he told Bored Panda.
Bryan has shared his style shots on his now-viral Instagram, @MarkBryan911. There, his bio explains further: “I am just a straight, happily married guy,” he wrote to his 62,000 followers, “that loves Porsche’s, beautiful women and incorporating high heels and skirts into my daily wardrobe.”
His daily wardrobe includes red pumps, plaid miniskirts, and seasonally appropriate suede boots, which Bryan paired with a sensible mid-calf beige pencil skirt.
While out and about Mark has faced some backlash, but he says he soon came to understand only a small proportion of people have a problem with it.
Mark said: ‘Some people, mostly men, are surprised that I am just a normal guy that can carry on a normal manly conversation.
‘Clothes have no gender, but I do refer to my shirts as men’s; just to be clear, I do not wear blouses.
‘Even if a say I wear a men’s shirt and a women’s skirt and heels, it’s all non-gender clothes to me.’
