More Men Now Wearing Tights

 

UK stockists have said that men's tights, designed to be worn under shorts, have surged in popularity. Kieran Hughes, director of Precious Collections says "German men have been wearing them for years" adding more than 50% of German men wear tights.

Natalie Theo, a fashion editor has said "The whole concept is absolutely ridiculous. It's metrosexuality gone stark raving mad. It is not even as though tights would be comfortable. And they've (men) got hairy legs."

The Aviation Health Institute has long recommended wearing tights to combat jet lag, which is caused by oxygen starvation. The tights help increase the flow of oxygenated blood.

The tights range from ultra sheer to thick, black tights.

  What's wrong with wearing tights?  
 
Wrestlers have been doing it for decades..... I would wear tights, but what would the cows think?

  Are these tights  
 
or pantyhose? Since this is an English source, maybe the word "tights" means something different than what it means in America. The biscuit/cookie thing.

The accompanying picture at the source showed "tights" as we understand them in the US. Some do come in quite sheer materials, but I tend to stick to warmer things like velour. I wear skirts year round and the tights help keep my lil legs warm.

  Ugh..  
 
It's not that I have anything against men wearing them, but I hate tights. Something about them, I haven't quite figured out why. I've never been particularly fond of tight clothing though, it's similar to wet clothing. I don't like the feeling of it being stuck to me. Maybe it's just me, I've always been an odd duck.

  it should be noted  
 
thatt this is in the UK where the thick black tights worn by soccer players (can be questioned as to whether they are actually male) have become popular amoung youths

  Men in Tights = Bikers?  
 
Its pretty normal for bikers to wear tights as it helps stop the cold wind. Dont really see what the problem is. Seems sensible too me!
