Fashion conscious men could soon be stepping into historic fashion and donning tights, it is reported.
Although it has been 500 years since tights
were a firm favourite with manly men such as Robin Hood, the legwear
look could be enjoying a resurgence in popularity according to the Daily Mail.
It states a number of lingerie manufacturers are now producing male hosiery
- and even selling out of the tights
This could be down to the popularity of superheroes films, the newspaper suggests.
Kieran Hughes, director of hosiery
supplier Precious Collections, told the publication the firm is selling more than 1,000 pairs of men's tights
However, Natalie Theo, the Daily Mail's fashion editor, is less enthusiastic, arguing the legwear
is "metrosexuality gone stark raving mad".
Despite her derision, there have been other suggestions that men could soon be sporting stockings
Matthew Sorrow, writing for the Fibre2Fashion blog, recently suggested men could soon embrace fashions which have previously been considered feminine, such as scarves, tights
