Kids, relief at last. It may have appeared odd for years on end that my scraggly ass self has been seen parading the dizzy streets of NYC with colorful tights, but it now seems gents such as myself and others may have finally been rewarded by the fashion world who have come to realize the tenacity of ‘meggings.’
Meggings you wonder? Think Robin Hood with his skin leg tights or Baryshnikov the ballet dancer strutting down Broadway in his ballet tights. Or to put it more delicately think your delicious svelte self this upcoming 2013 lads finally taking a leap of faith and now starring in your cute display of ‘meggings.’
telegraph.co.uk: But “Megging”, as the male legging is known, is now all the rage in sartorial circles. Celebrities such as Justin Bieber, Russell Brand and Lenny Kravitz have all been spotted wearing leggings, while fashion stores Uniqlo, Barneys and Nordstrom are selling tights for men.
The bad news is they are on their way to Britain: Uniqlo is already selling them on its British website, and their success in New York is seen as an indication they will also prove popular here.
A burgeoning trend over there in the UK, the new male dress sense is thought to be the new ‘must be’ seen look for all you strapping lads. Which of course is my personal cue to start wearing wide brimmed slacks again….
Shouldn’t you start wearing meggings too?
