Men in Tights — Will Meggings Catch on in America?

Men in tights is no longer just part of the title in a Robin Hood movie — it’s the new, hot fashion trend reported to be taking Manhattan by storm.

According to Times Live, the next hot fashion item for men is ... yes, tights. Do you have any in the Christmas stocking for the man in your life this year? Or, if you're a man, is it on your Christmas Wish List?

This fashion trend has been trying to make inroads for a couple of years, but up until now really hasn’t really caught on. However, once people like Justin Bieber, Russell Brand and Lenny Kravitz don their tights, or meggings as they’re being called, before heading out in public, things are sure to change. According to Times Live, meggings are doing well in Britain and are starting to really catch on in New York. Meggings are reportedly a natural progression from “skinny jeans” for men.

Do you think this trend will catch on, even here in the more conservative south, or is it just too European to make it in America?

My fiancee prefers me to wear nothing as often as possible while at home, and when out in public to keep it safe from prying eyes...

It would be visual pollution!

Men in tights sounds awkward. Frankly speaking I wont like to see the men in meggings.

I don't see a problem with the idea, especially if worn under shorts...

It’s OK to encourage the liberal men out there in the world to wear them then? Monsieur Longshanks was right after all…
