Tights.

Baby, in my house, the codpiece never went out of style.

*wink*

This would never wok for me.  My penis isn't huge, but my balls are.  I'd be arrested the minute I went outside.  I'm barely decent in baggy jeans.
 
2014-03-17 06:56:17 AM  
Yeah it wouldn't work for me either, I'm a bit out of shape, plus I have a small package.

Look at the average body of the American male, and consider if we'd really go for a form fitting legging?

Seriously. I bike on average 100 miles a week, and there is no way in 10,000 hoary Hells that I'd be wearing the damn things. I mean, I'm sure that the Jersey Shore set might good for a few--because let's face it, self obsessed dudes love to see their own steroid abuse shrunken packages because it reminds them that they're actually there--and a few college campuses will have the metrosexual populations who will follow trends blindly until someone points out that they look like Russel Brand trying to wear his ex's cast offs, but the rest of the country, maybe less.

I feel like they've been pushing this trend story for about a decade.

Is there a place where I can bet money against forced fashion trends? Because I would bet my life's savings that this ain't gonna happen.

Same.

I would have sworn someone did a comedy riff on this over a decade ago - maybe Seinfeld?

The thought of some redneck wandering around with a duck dynasty beard and camo tights is both hilarious and terrifying.

We've followed skinny jeans to their logical conclusion. The bad news is that the next step is for hipsters to start walking around naked in public.

I'd rather see wearing beaten hipsters as a hat for a fashion trend.

2014-03-17 08:26:58 AM  
Why would they be called "Meggings"? Legging for women is not called "Weggings", and leggings for girls are not called "Geggings"?

Saunter forth, Blackadder!
 
2014-03-17 08:34:48 AM  
There is a precedent for both, you know:

There's wrong with wearing those things as long as you put on you ski pants next before leaving the house.

"stop trying to make men's leggings happen. It's not going to happen."

I always hated that thing. It looks cool at a quick glance, but when you look closer you can see that there's no actual way to get the rounds from the cylinder into the barrel.
 
2014-03-17 08:59:37 AM  
so, like the late 80s when some of us, I mean, um some guys I saw, wore thermals under their torn up jeans, but without the jeans?

Yes, but if you made one that looked as if it might actually work, it wouldn't look so much like a guy's junk.
Priorities, you know.

Just repeat to yourself "It's just a show. I should really just relax."

Don't really get the Thor one.

What game is that last one from?  Dragon Age?

Tights on men are heavily dependent on context in order to work. Ballet dancers, speedskaters, scuba divers and superheroes, OK. Guys just wearing them on the street just look ridiculous.

Codpiece? Go for the Black Russian...

...codpiece...

no no no subby, you have to give it a trendy hip new name that sounds like the old name..

I suggest rodpiece

I would so rock meggings but the rediculousness of my boxer lines would kinda kill the look.

Hey, IF chicks find this attractive again, I'll have no problem rocking tights, Henry VIII style.

But that's such a big IF you could probably see it from outer space.

Saiga410: I would so rock meggings but the rediculousness of my boxer lines would kinda kill the look.


You'd have to switch to thongs or go commando. I'd prob choose the latter.

It's a reaction to the equally popular men-wearing-skirts fad that doesn't happen every six months or so.

As someone wearing ren attire for my wedding, I'm getting a kick out of these replies.

I'll admit, I dont get the Thor one either, but it's funny watching him get bounced around.
yeah, dragon age for the last, I'm pretty sure.

No one wants this other than fashion designers. If we're going to switch up men's clothes, tighter is the wrong direction. Let's move towards robes, kimonos, kilts, ect. if men's clothes need a change. More constriction is not the way to go. Plus, as has been said, for 90% of men leggings just look bad because most men have bad looking legs.

The SO does about the same, bike-wise, (average anyway, way more in the summer, probably about 50/week now) and he sometimes wears tights.

Under his damn pants, because it's another layer and it's been freaking cold this year.
