Are you man enough for meggings?

I’ve researched this new phenomenon extensively and I am sorry to say that the owners of Meggings Man are indeed serious about this trend. They are convinced that men actually want to wear leggings.

So I’m curious. Guys — would you walk around Portland in meggings? There are plenty of options to suit your every need, from classic black to a pair of “silver metallic that don’t know the meaning of the word humble.”

I’m all for fashion equality. Men should be able to wear anything women can wear (and vice versa) but there’s something that feels a little too in your face about these. Besides, I’d assume the same rules that apply for women should apply for men. Leggings aren’t meant to be pants, but rather a layer worn with longer tops, sweaters or blouses. I’m pretty sure only professional wrestlers and Peter Pan have ever pulled this look off.

I took to twitter to get some second opinions. @MEClosets said “The idea of meggings makes my eyes burn. No.” And @Lulu_Dee concurred with a #nomeggings response. @Gorphiss wanted to know “What exactly is the difference between these and skinny jeans?” and @Kyle_Katalyst thought these should be only used for costumes or football games.

What do you think about this trend? Join in on the conversation on twitter!
