No more responses along the lines of 'Ewww' or 'No' or 'I can't imagine my average-Joe-boring-as-****-guy-friends wearing this' please. Reading four pages of this is pretty tiring.

What is the purpose of leggings under shorts when trousers would've done the same job. Seems frivolous. Also raises footwear problems.

I've been wearing shiny leggings to parties recently and I just love it, but shorts over leggings look rather weird in most of the pictures, don't you think so?
I don't think this trend would get popular at all.

i dont understand why skinny jeans on guys (and even girls) is acceptable but leggings just get a huge turn off for both men and women...

honestly, i like the concept of something loose and wide over something tight and lean and maybe right now the way designers have been doing did not hit the spot.
of course, this look is not suited for everyone...obviously you dont expect to see bankers walking around in them. i find this look is pretty street oriented so i dont get why people say it's gonna be hard to see it on the street. i have seen worse combinations on the streets that i would wish it never hit the runway

It looks a bit odd to me, and somewhat girlish.

The guy in Jak and Jil looks cool and nonchalant, sexy even!

Hey i think might give it a try!
In fact I 'm going to combine my loose white shorts with the black tights that I have.. or not? Hmm... Maybe it is better with matching white tights? What do ya guys think?

For god's sake, give menswear a break! Why restrict creativity and fun?

i actually really like the trend.... i wore some black cuffed shorts paired with black leggings scrunched up, a black slouched shirt and some black high tops. i don't think it looks odd at all.

Are you referring to me or the general idea of men in leggings?

I think this can look okay if they are a non shiny material, like skinny jogging pants. Most of all it depends who is wearing them and how brave they are!
