Skirtaloons

This is the name my daughter has given her culottes she wears as part of her school uniform.

So there you go, call them culottes no longer: the official name is SKIRTALOONS.

Was anybody calling them culottes before? I don’t even know what culottes are.

You’ve never had to purchase a girl’s school uniform

I’m sorry, what authority does she have to make these changes? None I bet.

I never pretended that I did, Theo, and you know that. You’re going to have to look closer to home for someone to blame for this one I’m afraid.

Also skirtaloon is a much better name she’s not wrong. I’ll back her til the end about this

My daughter calls them skorts - although that might be a slightly shorter length item than skirtaloons, not sure…

Yeah skorts (certainly for my daughter) are indeed the shorter, tighter version. These are bigger and flappier hence the reference to pantaloons, which is what we claim our fluffy cat has on her back legs.

I only learnt within the last 10 years when we went to see David Sedaris live and he was wearing a truly heroically large pair which he talked about at length.
