Capris for men, aka "manpris" - Page 4
Styleforum Top Picks
It never ceases to amaze me how certain elements of society in the United States consider certain fashions to be "improper" or "gay" even though they are perfectly acceptable in Europe and Asia. I have seen men wearing "manpris" in a number of US cities, including Chicago, Washington DC, Milwaukee, and even (surprisingly) Louisville. I was not in the gay districts of these cities when I saw them, either. I occasionally wear the ones I purchased in Europe a few years ago in areas of the my city that I consider to be safe. I might turn a few heads, but sometimes people need to be shocked out of their closed-minded bubble. I wouldn't think of wearing them in the more redneck areas, though.
As we say in the "Big Apple" watts da mata with you ? Have you never heard that our long lost cousins the Brits have been wearing them for years. They are affectionatly known as "Knickers"; used for hunting, hiking, and all sort of outdoor events.
While I have never seen them used outside of a sports affiliated event, I have personally had two pairs myself, both from Woolrich for the winter and the other 65/35 cotton poly (washable for the summer activities like hiking or outdoor activities. Check out your American History in the 20's & 30"s school kids use to wear them all the time going to school. While they have fallen out of favor by the vast majority they definetly serve a specific purpose when needed. What they need is more red blooded men to get a pair if you can find them and start using them for certain events. By the way does anyone know where I can get knickers here in the USA; I have outgrown the old waist size and have not found any available. Remember the Scots & Irish wear kilts so why not bring the old knickers back into style.
Where is it a crime against humanity? I don't remember seeing that in the United Nations charter. If you have that mindset, you probably shouldn't ever leave the United States, as you would be in for a life-changing culture shock.
