Brosiery and mantyhose take off as men seek the comfort and fashion statement of patterned tights
Mail Online ^

Posted on 03/07/2012 6:28:51 PM PST by Pride_of_the_Bluegrass

If you thought men in tights was a sartorial statement best left to medieval jesters, think again. The underwear staple for women is making its way into wardrobes of the opposite sex - and the look is gaining popularity. If any were in doubt as to the strength of the trend, it even has its own name: Mantyhose.

Some marketing/sales person somewhere thought this up as a way to meet sales quota.

I hope they get fired and never work again.

Gaining popularity? Maybe, if you’re from some sub-stratum class of deviant whack-jobs.

This, too, will pass.

Unfortunately, it will pass and the next thing will be weirdness from another dimension.

I asked my husband if he would try them. He said, “No”.
Do you think he will change his mind if global warming equals global cooling and he needs warmth under his jeans?

I do believe that fellow is an athlete. Totally different. I think it’s the gay takeover of the fashion industry that’s been screwing things up for ages. Female models are shaped like boys and now men are wearing pantyhose because a couple of numbskulls or pervs say it’s ‘fashion’. I don’t know any men who would be caught dead or alive in them.

OMG, what a pun! I LOL'ed so loudly and explosively at that, that the cat reposing on my lap exploded as well, went airborne straight up a good foot and a half, and when she landed she was already going 30MPH sideways. I probably won't need stitches, but only because there's not enough left to sew; this is a job for SuperGlue.

Maybe we should bring back the codpiece too. Women get pushup bras, miracle bras, and water bras. Two can play at that game!

Do not laugh but I have known men to wear them. These men were not gay and were roughnecks on drilling rigs in some of the coldest damn places you can imagine. They would layer their clothing.
1. underwear
2. panty hose
3. insulated long johns for legs and upper body
4. insulated overalls

If you accused them of being a bit effeminate it would be a real bad day for you.

The North Sea and North Dakota can be a COLD SON OF A B-—H!

The ad came later. As I recall, the game was during bitterly cold temperatures and many of the Jets’ players wore pantyhose under their uniform pants for the additional warmth they provided.

And that was why Joe Namath wore them, too. Alabama boy with bad knees playing in freezing weather in New York City every now and then...

And that is about the only situation that wearing these in this day and age is not a blip enhancer on the ‘ole gaydar. To keep warm while being completely out of sight.

Fashion’s cyclical. There was a time when tights were very common.

The MARKETING, however, is unbelievably flamboyant.

Don't do it guys! It's a TRAP! Next thing you know they are going to be trying to tell you to wear high heeled shinny leather shoes with pointed toes.

Getting them on is not even the worse part. All those weird dance moves came from women trying to keep their pantry hose in place.

Even I don't wear the darn things, on occasions where hosiery is called for stockings fill the bill nicely.
