Men in tights in the media

There have been several stories in the UK media today with a focus on men wearing tights. Well, to be precise, the focus is on so-called 'meggings', or leggings for men.

The Daily Telegraph headlined an article with: 'Men in tights: how 'meggings' are taking fashion by storm'.

Unfortunately the article isn't a balanced look at the issue at all, and has lots of the usual silly comments. But it does mention that the fashion retailers Uniqlo, Barneys and Nordstrom are selling tights for men.

The Telegraph also has a poll: 'Should Men ever wear tights?' I am sure many Hosiery For Men readers will want to respond to this.

The Guardian led with: 'Should men wear leggings?'. They also have a poll, and in the image below you can see the current voting returns.
