Mantyhose
"Not just for superheroes anymore! 'Mantyhose,' tights for men, grow in popularity"

http://www.nydailynews.com/lifestyle...mantyho-2.html

From the perspective of an American heterosexual male, this is just weird. Also, I think if you're interested in "accelerating the acceptance of male pantyhose as a regular clothing item" you should probably stop calling it "mantyhose," no?


nydailynews



EDIT: I missed the "Kindly avoid starting new threads on a specific trend before you have found examples of the trend in at least five different shows or collections. If you do not have the time to search and transload pictures from five different shows please take your observations to the pinned catwalk trends topic." rule here. I haven't noticed this in any shows. Mods, please feel free to move this to a more appropriate location.

This trend will never pick up if it is even a trend at all.. leave it to Romeo to wear the tights plz..

And I just agree with the bolded part.. please stop calling things man____, ie mantyhose, man-bag, man-dals, etc..

ched, If the trend topic is about a particular season (ie. Spring Summer 2009) then examples are needed; otherwise it's ok we have 'general' trends also not specific to seasons, as you can see in the forum

-

We have threads actually on tights for men
and also leggings :p

to be honest nylon stretch stockings feel GREAT on the skin
