    The use of the OVEROL, or pants, is promoting modern men's diseases: impotence, sterility, prostate problems, testicular cancer. No part of the body of men is bruised or abused as much as the genitals. There are many more reasons that justify the man to WEAR SKIRTS AGAIN. The pants have been a symbol of abuse, exhibitionism, and humiliation towards women and infants. Much better, healthier, more comfortable and more respectful, and innovative, that men wear skirts, or dresses with a skirt.

    No Mamen is an exceptional clothing, elegant, mystical and especially the gentlemen look extremely attractive and cause excitement and make the imagination fly. When girls meet an INDU, touch it and they will feel like they are traveling to India and surrounded by beautiful boys.
