Men In Tights–Or Leggings

You all now have the song from the Mel Brooks movie stuck in your heads.  Unfortunately, I do too.  This may end badly.

I understand the function of tights and leggings for women.  I don’t agree with them being worn as pants, but I understand.  For men, though?  Seems like an odd decision.  I was also informed that this is not a workout outfit; this was worn in a public place as casual wear.  I’m confused and distressed.  Looking at the photo is not helping those feelings even a little.

My brain is broken.  

This photo is causing me an astonishing amount of emotional distress.  There are several unmentionable reasons why that might be in the above photo.  I can’t even.  I’m just going to gasp in astonished disgust, and go wash out my brain in a sink.

The only thing I can really bring myself to say is that I’m reminded strongly of a comment I got on here.  I’m paraphrasing, but the gist is that thread count is just as important in leggings as in good sheets.  Buy better leggings, or alternatively, wear real trousers.

I can’t even.  I’m going to go have a brandy and not think about this any more.

    Sometimes I wonder, why should there be “clothes for men” and “clothes for women”? Isn’t it sexist? Can’t we all wear anything we like?

    But then you have a guy going around in tights without even being Superman, and one has to WONDER at how he got to terms with his crotch. Or not?

      That was my struggle. I felt really reverse sexist saying that there are clothes that guys shouldn’t wear. And then I looked at the picture more closely and went straight back to being irritated with this Mystery Man.

    OK. Guys can get away with wearing tights to the gym but I don’t see a gym bag here. And what’s with the construction boots worn with tights… I don’t get it? Help!!

  4. Oh My Gosh.
    Wasn’t his dick sticking out in those leggings like a big bump?
    Perhaps he felt like he had to flaunt nature’s gifts in the only non-illegal way…

      I might of disagreed with you about guys wearing leggings in public being non-illegal. BUT!! After watching the London olympics this week I must say it is completely alright to display your dick to an audience. Lots of man dicks in the swimming events with those itsy bitsy tiny weeny speedos. Then the men’s wrestling wearing those skin tight lycra spandex leotards left nothing to the imagination. One Russian wrestler even adjusted his nuts while on camera. At lease you could see a VPL under those leotards but I don’t see any panty lines in the pic here, so he must be wearing a thong or maybe just going commando. Oh no I just created an horrible vision in my brain.
