no way

I was reading a few things on fashion trends... and ran across this.

I am not even sure why women wear pantyhose.... now they have mantyhose!
The advertisers say "these male underwear are the most comfortable you will ever wear next to your skin"... and "these are not your mother's pantyhose!".
I'm not buying it. No way.
Growing up in the 80's, we loved our hose. They started to fade away in the 90's... and every now and then, when I attempt to wear them in 2008, my girls guffaw at why in the world would I wear them? (It has something to do with gravity).
I personally think it is a wicked evil marketing ploy to get men to want to buy the one thing they have never been able to get away with wearing unless they are Robin Hood.

YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME? what in the world is next? gross, gross, gross!

It's about time somebody tricked men into wearing something grossly uncomfortable because it's "cool" or "comfortable". Women have worn: pantyhose, girdles (Remember those??? 1950-60), high heels, tight skirts...how far back do we go??? long skirts, bustles, gloves, hats...etc. :) Trust me, it won't fly. Men won't buy into it!!

I don't know......they could show up on track or basketball court. Or under football pants. That spandex suit the boys were in track.....I would have never guessed my son would wear one. So I am not going to spout my true opinion of these for fear I will have to eat it!

Thigh-highs baby! I'd hate to have to see them on men, though. wouldn't be the most flattering - momzie has a point - maybe for sports?? Don't they wear tights in football anyway?

But a fashion trend....ugh.

Plus it would get snagged in the laundry, and at 15 bucks a pair - I wonder if they protect you from mosquito bites, though? I could check ebay. I will buy 2 and send one your way. :)

wouldn't you just love to see the face behind those legs... wonder how much that poor guy got paid to show off his legs. what i got a kick out of is that they offer a footless pair for the guy wearing his strappy summer sandels and a ribbed version so he can change it up a bit. shawn so needs a pair! :)
