Exactly. My friend was telling me how he was out with another friend who got asked if he was wearing leggings as his jeans were so tight.

I can see how leggings under shorts would work well for mountain bikers, who generally wear loose shorts to distinguish themselves from the spandex-clad "roadies." The leggings would offer warmth in cooler temps and some protection from scratches.

Otherwise... no.

I totally agree with you about the very tight skinny jeans.

But would you think people (including me) would wear them for sprorts if they would cut off the blood circulation? Surely not.

What is it that the moment a man goes anywhere near what is perceived as traditionally feminine things the world starts spinning in the other direction. It may not look good, and personally looking at the pictures in this thread and the skirts thread I can see nothing that would persuade me to don skirts or tights, but I don't see why it is fine for women to just open the male wardrobe, put anything on she chooses no one thinks she's a crossdresser or pervert.

If men in tights and skirts is so aweful to you to the point of revulsion and feeling the need to reach for the nearest bucket, then perhaps you may consider that a woman in trousers/pants may be creating the exact same reaction in men. What happened to true femininity that was so evident before women put trousers on. So much for equality.

Be fair, look and comment on these trends for what they are. Being dedicated followers of fashion you should be open to new ideas. Fashion has always challenged the boundaries imposed by society and long may it continue to do so.

Anyway, men as a whole have better leg definition than women so the jealousy card is being played.

You have got to be kidding, do you actually really believe women are jealous of men leg definition? Most women would recoil in horror if they woke up on day with a men's type of legs. What is there to be jealous about?

I like my men to look like men, i do not like to see them wear delicate clothes, plus fashion conscious men ,to me are a total turn off.

Men in tights to me are not aesthetically pleasing, the same way i'm willing to accept that men may not find sexy a woman in trousers, no one is forbidding a men to wear tights or a women to wear trousers. But we have the right to comment in a fashion forum if we think a certain trend is totally ridiculous.

Totally agree.

I don't see a point why the jealousy card should be played. In my opinion neither women nor men have a "better" leg definition. They have a different leg defition which with their own kind of "beauty".

I think the main problem with men wearing tights is that most people are not used to see the original shape of a male body in public.

But if you really want to talk about jealousy: I think the point is that if men become more fashion conscious, women might get afraid of loosing the "leadership" in fashion ...

i like this last part ^ :-)

it also means developing more choices and we'll eventually come across the question that women are asked.. which is dressing for yourself or dressing for the opposite sex/other people

i think male fashion at the moment feels more like it is dressing for other people.
