Men have legs too! Hosiery, tights and leggings are unisex garments.
So, I discovered this from recently buying leggings/tights for men. Now I see guys at the gym wearing leggings all time. Footed sheer tights and pantyhose style not as much. Which I prefer. I’m 28 and just recently started wearing tights because I went on a hunting trip and wanted long underwear with feet and couldn’t find any at Walmart but they had tights or (footless leggings) right there in the men’s athletic section and I started searching the store for some with feet. They don’t sell any as I’ve learned those are more tights. So I popped into the women’s section as I needed something that day and bought the thickest, warmest tights they had. I ended cutting the front section out as it was to tight but they were prefect! I loved the feeling of being in them. They are so comfortable and I have recently ordered some for men. I even sleep in tights or leggings now. Not to hot not to cold. Here’s what I’m genuinely confused about, why would anyone be embarrassed about this? My wife doesn’t think it’s weird she’s younger than me. I see guys you wouldn’t want to mess with wearing them at the gym. I told my buddies how I ended up getting leggings and love it. Who cares? Why is this weird?
Welcome....and to many of us...wearing hosiery is NOT weird....it is just clothing ....Fletch.
Maybe if there was more of a push to put “men’s hosiery” in Walmart etc such as what you can order online there would be more market as more would consider wearing them? I don’t think it’s weird at all I guess just some of the comments in some other posts made me post my comment. I would love to have men’s hosiery section like women’s with a bada** selection!! Some cool thick tights in camo and what not sold at the local Walmart. Thanks
Get the George tights atWalmart. Like a footed legging. I'm at the large limit at 5'7 160. Any larger may not be that comfortable
The type of legwear many of us choose to wear might be considered encroaching on the female territory. That would be normal sheer stockings and pantyhose. That said, it is not any different in form than footed tights, which have become almost unnoticed among athletic males. The fit and function of sheer hosiery are different as they are designed to enhance yet not hide the natural look of legs. I find superior comfort in this type of legwear and that is what I prefer to wear about 90% of the time. Evan though it is hard to spot a women in hosiery these days, they still claim the garment as female, hence the debate starts. Evan though you can argue the garment is as practical for men as women, the argument will not be won on logic. Trust me, I know.
By the way Fletch, A very Happy Birthday to you and hopefully many more.
Thank you ....I am now in the " 7" club...does not seem real.....good to hear from you ....Hello to both.....Fletch.
