    I actually wore Adidas tights and shorts to the gym today. If you like doing deadlifts but don't like scratching up your shins, it's a winning combination.

    I've seen quite a few guys wear this look fashionably - at least in the StyleZeitgeist vein. It's best if you're thin and have a lot of 'tude. But life's short - why not try it. Get a pair of sport tights rather than girl's leggings. Plenty of guys wear those, and they're probably cut more for your body. There's all kinds of insane articulated ones for runners and such.

    So do these man-tights have a pouch or some allowance up front, or is that not necessary?
    I suspect that any man contemplating wearing tights wouldn't need to worry about such an issue. [​IMG]


    There's nothing wrong with guys wearing leggings, historically this has happened a fair amount, without anyone questioning said male's sexual preference (which personally I think is immature and pathetic)....Really, being a fashion forum filled with people that have some understanding of the fashion world, I was not expecting the amount of ignorant "omg leggings how gay" comments I see in this thread. Grow up.
    Historically, you're right; no problem. But presently? Leggings are teh ghey.

    And pretending you aren't able to distinguish the huge difference between "Dude, that's looks gay," and "Dude, your appearance suggests you are homosexual" is pretty disingenuous; you know exactly what such a comment means. "Ignorant?" "Grow up?" Oh, come on. [​IMG]

    It's so obvious that people on styleforum dress solely for other people and not for themselves. Which is why you suck.

    Your logic, sir, is apodictic. Touche.

    There you go - under armor coldgear leggings with a sweatshirt/short combo and high sneakers with socks over leggings. Why can't guys do this.

    Great idea for cool weather knockaround wear. Nothing wrong with that at all.
