I have underarmour tights for working out when it is cold, but not as a fashion accessory.

The only time “tights” might be acceptable is for their utility - they are good for runs on cold mornings because they keep the legs warm, but otherwise .. no deal!

I’m still waiting for the male purse to catch on, the press has been telling us that it is, for almost 40 years now.

Runs in your tights? You need to carry a bottle of clear nail polish in your male purse for those occasions.

I remember when Jim Brown wore a man-purse in the l60s. Richard Prior had described Jim Brown as the toughest man he ever met and his football career supported that conclusion.

No one ever told Jim Brown wearing a purse was wrong.

New day-new deal.

Been wearing ‘em for years...I put them on when I’m starting at my Erik Estrada poster.

On a lighter note, not even the flaming fags I know wear tights. That’s just...gay.

I always liked the PBS sponsorship message when they said “This was brought to you by the Chubb Group”.

I always wondered about that.

Were programs TRULY brought to us by a collection of semi-turgid male members?

***the press has been telling us that it is, for almost 40 years now.***

Remember when they tried to get men to wear makeup? You see such a character in the movie ROSEMARY’S BABY.

Tights
Male dresses
Male makeup
male purses

What is next!

At my present weight and girth, I’ve found that I no longer look good in women’s clothing. Then again, I never did...

1960s?

Let me rephrase my post then.

I’m still waiting for the male purse to catch on, the press has been telling us that it is, for MORE THAN 40 years now.

Exactly.

Fag clothing.

I wouldn’t wear that crap in public if they paid me.

Why not just wear a sign on you back, saying you are gay.

From the article:

New York-based British fashion designer Lucy Sykes warned that 'megging' is a hard look to pull off. "The only guy I've seen that looks good in a legging is my friend Neil who works with me at Rent the Runway," she said. "But he's young, dark and handsome and used to perform ballet at Lincoln Centre."

"Frankly any other man I have seen [in tights] looks a bit of a wally."

As one ages and sees the same breathless stories about the "new" trend sweeping the nation every decade or so for 50 years, we get a little skeptical.

They tried this in the 70’s with a product called “Mannyhose”...the spokesperson was Joe Namath...it bombed big time.

A handful of emasculated Manhattan metrosexuals (but I repeat myself) start wearing this gay apparel and we’re supposed to believe it’s a rage sweeping the male world?

Looking in a mirror and thinking it’s a window ...

Plus rapiers and daggers. Then bring back duelling.

Nah, too much to hope for.

A guy walked by me on Madison Avenue in 1991 wearing the same mink jacket and European Carry-All that Seinfeld is wearing. It was Freddie Mercury. Go figure.

I like it. It helps me identify those I want to avoid and not take seriously just like skinny jeans and sideways ball caps.

"meggiings"? Is that like "manties"?

The fashion world is run by gay men for gay men (who want all women to look like little boys as well, or at very least, less like women).

Stuff like this makes me grab an older pair of jeans and a flannel shirt to get ready for the winter.
