On the front page of yahoo yesterday I saw this title:
“Leggings are the new must-have”
The first thing I thought of was this:
I just figured everything old comes back into style again. So those little leg things that they wore in Flashdance were about to make a comeback. Oh you silly women, you will wear anything…. But then I read a little closer…
Leggings…. the new hot MALE fashion must have. I clicked on the article to see this picture:
The picture was accompanied by an article which had this little blurb in it:
Leggings made of microfiber cotton and wool, shown in violet, forest green

Marni shoes were also real winners, knobby workerist boots in bottle green or
metallic gray with subtle strips of contrasting color like burgundy.

2- Possible underwear lines- Girls worry about showing their pantie lines when they get dressed I don’t need that added pressure in the morning.
3- Gay men wouldn’t even wear these- When I asked my gay friend, my true source for all questions dealing with gay people, he looked at the picture and said, “Fuck no, but I would totally let the model give me a Rusty Trombone though.”
Besides if they wanted to go with an unconventional but sophisticated look there is only one way they could have gone:
