'Men in tights' now fashionable
According to retailers in Europe and the United States, men are choosing to mimic their female and superhero counterparts with their choice of legwear, it has been reported.

In a report for kansascity.com, Shelley Emling commented on the latest craze of men buying tights and hosiery, with the reporter making the link between recent Batman-based blockbuster the Dark Knight and the growing trend for leggings.

In a range of interviews with leading tights providers, it was concluded that the trend was to add insulation in colder climates, as the legwear "stimulates circulation and alleviates muscle fatigue".

One even highlighted the fact that Roman soldiers were issued with leggings over 2,000 years ago as part of their uniform.

Earlier this month, the Daily Mail noted that the Aviation Health Institute had recommended that those travelling by plane should wear high pressure tights to fight jet lag, which it said helps oxygenate the blood.
