I walk into stuff - coffee tables, chairs, the corner of the dragon cage - and also clobber my shins climbing into the van or the truck.

Sorry about that. Was it sugar-free, at least? Less sticky, fewer ants ...

It’s “sexy” like my greyhound lying on her back with all her legs in the air, looking like a dead chicken.

You got a Good point! Nice visual.

From the article:

"Men are pairing them with shorts.

Not this man.

Some styles come "with front zippers included."

I think I read about that in the Book of Revelation.

I love the UA tights and wear them to the gym in the months wear it is too cool indoors to workout in shorts.

I wear something underneath them.

I’ve seen the male athletic tights at the dance shops in the city-that stuff is made for a specific purpose, though-like leotards, ballet shoes, riding clothes, sports uniforms, etc-not for everyday street wear.

The tights that I wore with my jester costume for the Mardi Gras square dance went over well ... (along with the pink petti-pants) ...

My skin is light olive, so I do go sans hose in the summer if I’m wearing a pair of heeled, toeless, backless shoes with a denim skirt or some such casual thing-but only for dinner at a local casual place with pool tables and a jukebox. Any place nicer is dress, hose, heels, etc. It is still considered trailer trashy here in the country to go bare legged with heels in a nicer restaurant-especially with Daisy Duke shorts (yes, some tourist women really wear that-it used to make MrT5 roll his eyes and laugh).

And 86 the flip-flops as anything but most casual attire-when I was a kid and my parents were stationed in Japan, those things were called “zorries” and they were what you put on when you took off your street shoes at the door of your house.

Well, being a jester is probably one of the most appropriate occasions for a man to wear tights-and those look like the drawings in medieval books, too.

Yep, with the shoes and the skirt you mention, bare legs are fine. But I’ve seen women at church wearing dresses and high-heeled pumps, and I just don’t get that.

Heels and Daisy Dukes? LOL oh my....

As for the flip-flops, I hear women say, oh but I want to show off my pedicure. Um, ever heard of sandals? There are all kinds, and for me, there’s nothing like a new pedicure and a pair of funky cork wedges. :)

Yes, it’s different if it’s your casual, go-to-Walmart skirt or what you’d wear to go out for burgers. The strange thing is the bare legs with couture dresses and thousands of dollars in jewelry and shoes ... like, “Why’d she leave home before she finished dressing?” My mom would smack me if I did that!

Heeled pumps and bare legs don’t go together-but this is a very small place, so most everyone here wears jeans or other denim or khaki to church-no heels. Since I paint my own nails, I really don’t think that much about it, but there are plenty of cute sandals around that are not thongs/zorries/flip flops.

A large number of the tourist women who wear the heels and Daisy Dukes are-large. They clatter across the wooden floor of the aforementioned restaurant like heifers in a semi, mutton tops and boobs bouncing. I’m a size 5 and I’ve never worn a get-up like that in public-my husband, God rest his soul would have laughed his ass off.

It’s the modern day equivalent of spandex, which BTW, used to be VERY popular running gear in SF units.

Panty hose were good at keeping the ticks and chiggers from attaching while on maneuvers.

when underarmour, a public company, displayed the product on cnbc (really) it was all about the compression technology and how the stitching and fabric were made for recovery. Also it is not intended to be seen.

The spandex you reference is a bit too “richard simmons”/

I wear pantyhose;I can’t go around bare-legged. It’s not as attractive.

‘Brosiery’? Really?

It’s one thing for a man to wear pantyhose to keep warm ,for support or for diving,but not for the reasons we women do.

SO not sexy.

Pantyhose aren't underwear. I believe they are considered lingerie,as well as leg wear.

3) physical work

“All the hairy legged men stuffing themselves into pantyhose. I don’t even want to imagine what that would look like or do they expect men to start shaving their legs as well?”

Not if they are Lumberjacks who wear women's clothes and hang around in bars:)

I know that sounds mean and funny, but it is the best comparison I could come up with-especially after having seeing one attack an order of (gag) chicken fried steak and french fries. As my daughter would say, she was a trencherman of some note...

Pantyhose make a woman look classy and professional. I like wearing them myself.

Any old dock worker can tell you that no amount of layers is as warm as a base layer of waist high panty hose.
