First they threw guyliner at us. Then came man skirts. Not kilts. Skirts. For men. Now, as if marketers are fighting to strip us of the last vestiges of our masculinity, they hit us with Mantyhose.
Yeah, mantyhose. Panty hose for men. Did we ask for this? Was there an outcry from guys who had cold calves? Yes, I remember Joe Namath wearing them back in the 70′s, but that was sports related. And he was Broadway Joe. He also wore fur coats, but he won a damn Super Bowl. This is just flat out wrong. (Although I will admit, that for a second, I thought the tribal ones in the middle pic looked kind of cool. But only for a second.) I believe the only time it’s acceptable for a guy to ever wear pantyhose is over his head, while robbing a bank.
There’s even a website, e-MANcipate, dedicated to “the acceptance of male pantyhose as a regular clothing item”. I think the man skirts had a better chance.
