Mark Bryan is a US-born mechanical engineer who has lived in Berlin for several years with his wife and daughter. His days are exactly like the classic family man who divides himself between home, work and passions, with the only difference that he does so by challenging gender stereotypes because he almost always wears heels and skirts.
Mark explained that he likes what he sees in the mirror. He always admired the fact that women could wear tight skirts and heels, but not sexually, but for the power they emanated. For him, clothes have no gender: he simply prefers skirts to dresses. The clothes, in fact, do not allow him to mix the sexes.
Mark revealed that he prefers a "masculine" look from the waist up and a "feminine" look from the waist down. However, for him clothes are of no gender.
“I dress like this because I can. I've always admired women who wore tight skirts and heels. Not in a sexual sense, but for the power they have shown they have - explains the engineer - I don't do it to be attractive, but to dress like any professional woman would. For me, clothes have no gender. And don't you think they fit me perfectly? ”, He asks ironically on social media. But beyond the irony, Mark carries on a real battle against stereotypes.
For Bryan, the skirt shouldn't be a dress for women only. Just like the tie shouldn't be worn only by men. In his closet you will not find therefore only "masculine" suits, because rather his clothes he prefers to mix them: in a jacket and shirt from the bust up but with a skirt, tights and heels underneath.
During an interview, the man stated that: "Men's trousers offer few color options: black, gray, dark blue, brown and no prints. While there is more choice with skirts, you can find different shades of red, green, blue, floral prints, animal prints, etc. And the same goes for shoes, where there are also many more styles and types of heels, moreover, they can also be worn open when the weather is nice “.
“I almost exclusively wear pencil skirts and stilettos. I don't wear dresses because above the waist I wear “masculine” clothes while below the waist I prefer knee-length skirts. During the week I wear heels of about 10 centimeters, ”said Mark.
