Clothing like this for men is worn in cycling, running, and basketball. ALso casually with shorts . I have seen longjohns with shorts in the fall and winter. I have seen running tights (footless) / leggings worn with baksetball shorts and sandals and with a full baksetball jersey and shorts with leggings and basketball shoes. Once at the mall last year. A guy and his girlfriend wear walking in the mall. He was a african american guy but his legs were darker than normal. I did a double take and he was wearing black footed tights with socks. Another instance was with shorts and leggings and sandals at the local Best Buy here in So California. I have worn mine to the gym and also to the store. I had a girl in an exercise class I know approach me after a conversation and she asked me if I was wearing stockings. I told her I was and that it was to keep my legs warm to prevent cramping during step class. I suggested it to her. She probably will wear em next week. No adverse comments. She just said she gets cramps and said ok. THat was the extent of it. Some women I think were curious but no comments.

Quite a lot of neu-rave club kiddies here in CPH wore them some months ago. It's over now, though. Although I must say, with the right frame and the right style, males can also pull them off. You just gotte be tall, extremely lean and under 25 with tons of self-confidence and an outfit ready for some clubbing extravaganza. It's for going out though - it would be a little weird wearing them too school. But then again. There isn't too much of a difference between heavy, textured leggings and a pair ultra-thin spandex-induced skin-tight Cheap Monday jeans, which are pretty comon in Scandinavia, among guys also. Sometimes you people have to be slightly less conservative and not care about what people think of you.

^ you should show pics !

I think they look well done when they are a thicker knit material, worn kinda sloppy and provide more of a layered look rather than skin tight. I dont think anything should be ruled out totally in fashion.

I had to LAWL so hard at that pic. The guy looks so manly and masculine and then he strikes such a womanly pose with the legs
