Ladies, how would you feel if your man started wearing tights? Yes, tights like the ones we wear during the winter season to keep your legs warm?
Fashion sites have been buzzing about a new trend in men’s accessories: mantyhose. According to New York Mag, 2 to 3 percent of annuals sales for hosiery retailer Emilio Cavallini are by men. With the trend rising over the past three years and to cater to demand, Cavallini decided to create unisex tights that allow for greater breathability:
“When we started our online shop we noticed that a lot of tights sized medium-large were being purchased by men. So I did a search on the Internet and discovered there is a cult following for mantyhose.”
According to Clutch Magazine, the retailer claims that men are wearing the pantyhose the same way women do; underneath clothing for an extra layer of protection from the cold or underneath shorts; this looks has been seen on Italian men. Have men not heard of long johns?
It’s one thing for men and women to wear matching hats or shirt, but matching tights? Absolutely not; this is a hot mess! Just like men wearing skinny jeans, these should be off limits for men too!
