Where the Men are Liberated

…and allowed to wear color!

Yes … in most places around the globe, the world has imprisoned men in clothing of plain colors – colors that ensure that the wearers melt into the background. The most they are allowed is a strip of color in the form of a tie. [But don’t be fooled – it is mostly lip-service – out of the 5 feet of fabric, only about 1 foot is allowed to peep through from under the coat!! ]

But in some places, the men remain liberated.

Did they fight for it? Or did they have benevolent & just women rulers who granted them their freedoms?

No idea how the liberation happened.

Either way – they dress attractively!

Here are some examples:

These are fantastic wedding sashes worn by grooms- with gorgeous embroidery and stunning colors!

Slowly – as men begin to ‘see’ the possibilities that they have never been allowed to explore by the social prisons, maybe after the interim stages of disbelief-grief-selfpity-envy and anger we will see some rebellion followed by change!

So let’s be patient.

Or be the change you want to see.

Here’s to men’s liberation – here’s to freedom from the 50 shades of dull!
