And, oddly enough, GIS for "hairy pantyhose" is massively NSFW...

Man + whatever portmanteaus are starting to make me stabby.

And they are so sheer it feels like I'm wearing nothing.

If by 'trend' you mean, load of crap that no one is really doing and which the media probably pulled out of its arse,
then yes.

This.

And I think this is like 3rd or 4th year in a row they've declared it a new "trend." We've definitely had a few threads about it.

Shall we call them a Manmanteau?

we need pics of farkettes wearing them (for science)

Will Mantyhose help control my sacking wedding tackle?
Just -um- asking from a general perspective.

American fashion cycles back through the 60s, 70s, and 80s. European fashion cycles back through the 16th, 17th, and 18th Centuries. Next up: not bathing.

Just a quibble about the word choices: They aren't really panty hose (or mantyhose, either) unless they have the pants part. Otherwise, they're just the usual stockings/garter combo. But words are important, and should be respected.
 
2013-02-19 10:19:24 AM  
Latest? Ha!
 
2013-02-19 10:23:55 AM  
Protip: pantyhose are only sometimes sexy on women. Thigh-highs are way sexier pretty much always, but only on women.

End transmission.

I don't understand this for fashion purposes. It makes sense for insulation, I suppose. I remember wearing lycra tights under my football uniform in high school, and I'll wear them under my motorcycle pants on cold days, but they don't make sense to me for fashion. As a child, I once asked my mom why she wore them and she said they made her legs look smoother and a little slimmer. I'm not sure how many guys are interested in that look, but I don't think I know any of them.

The pic in the article showed stockings, but the description was of pantyhose (i.e. your genitals have to choose a side).

Big question: Why?

Are they also wearing skirts?

If they give you swamp crotch do they become smeggings

I love the comments:

Most of the men, not models, in America are so out of shape that my first thought would be: " OK, do you want to try one of my bras?" Why? Because the fattiesneed them more than they need pantyhose!

There are no overweight women in America. None.

Make sure you keep nail polish in your European Carry-all to stop runs in your Mantyhose.

Mantyhose by Manti T'eo.  Makes your legs feel so nice, you'll think you were touching an actual girl.

I wear tights with shorts pretty regularly, but I object to the various portmanDON'TCALLTHEMTHATs.

If a new trend starts with "man" then it's the invention of a fevered writer on a slow news day, or a new name for old fashion. A large chunk of them seem to originate from Cosmo. (Comes to mind: "Manscaping," "Male-gagement ring," "Heavage," "Mandals")

As fashion it sounds pretty dumb.

I like long socks though -- i have varicose veins in my calves and wearing compression socks that go up to my knee are fantastic. It just feels good. Not "im sexy" good but like "damnit thats comfy" good. I also have a pair of thermal HH bottoms that fit very much like hose. They keep me so warm when i layer up though...

Knee high sports socks are freaking comfortable. I either wear those, compression stockings or no socks at all. I cant stand regular socks now.

There are practical reasons for legging styled underwear. Fashion isnt one of them.

That being said i would love compression stockings with skulls of them. I'm in my mid 20's and compression socks all seem to be made for old guys. Understandable because thats the big market but I want something in between thin dress sock and plain black sports socks.

It's been in existence, but thought it was more of a transvestite thing. Those of us who who have been listening to the radio for a while are well aware that the knee stocking flavor is a favorite treat of men that don't bother with the taste of a teat.

THIS.  Dear Cosmo editors, just stop it.  JUST    STOP    IT.

Sincerely,
Men.

P.S.  Also, quit running the 'top sex moves that men love' articles --- without asking men.

Looks like I am way ahead of the curve on this one.

It's exactly what it sounds like?  It sounds like manatee pantyhose.
