Even H&M are a bit bold. Last years summer collection had two pieces of men in skirts.

...When Bowie wore his dress on the cover of The Man Who Sold the World in 1971, that cover was censored in many places so that an alternative cover had to be produced for certain markets. One of the interesting things about Bowie's dress from the cover (and others like it) is that it was a "man's dress" designed specifically for a man's body.  He's not technically in "drag".  He did his first tour of the U.S. in his "men's" dresses like this.


I found a little more information about this. From Tidbits Newspaper of August 12-18, 2010: "The original cover of "The Man Who Sold the World" showing Bowie in a dress, was banned in the US. The cover that replaced it was of a man with a shotgun in front of a building. The building is...the Cane Hill Mental Hospital where Bowie's brother Terry was a patient."

I got this issue of Tidbits from Po' Boys Steakhouse in Casper, Wyoming. Friend, I'm sure you remember going there with me!!

Thanks Lee. :)  Yes, I remember Po'Boys in Casper.  Didn't we stop in Casper twice?  Once on the way up and once on the way back?

And, yes, isn't it amazing to think that this particular photo was so shocking at the time that the censorship happened?  

Here's an alternative version/ outfit related to the censored cover. And some other related photos.




The whole topic of Cane Hill and Terry came up thoroughly in the threads here about Duncan's movie (with Jake in it) Source Code.  There are very many chilling references to Terry (and I think to Cane Hill too) in that movie.  In the BetterMost thread about Source Code, the intensive discussion about Terry starts around here: http://bettermost.net/forum/index.php/topic,48948.msg608898.html#msg608898

'Tis the alternative cover and a photo of Cane Hill (now closed and crumbling):

Ah, there you go.  If it's 20 below I will NEVER be outside for a long time so I don't have to worry about what to wear.  8)

Well me neither, if I can help it. But I still have to go from the car to the building and back again, and occasionally walk several blocks.

I can see where a skirt with layers would be enough to get you through a Texas winter.

He seems to be holding the King of Clubs in that photo.
