Thirty-four per cent of men 'have hosiery habit'
Thirty-four per cent of men wear tights under their suit to the office, according to new research.

According to the Men in Tights survey by website Tightsplease, 15 per cent of women said they did not like the idea of their man wearing tights but 48 per cent said they love shopping for the legwear with their partner.

Additionally, 58 per cent of tight-wearing men said they do not like to tell friends or colleagues about their hosiery habit.

The website reports that one man said: "Many men wear tights in secret - partners are seldom aware, I managed to hide it for 15 years."

Meanwhile, one writer for the Wall Street Journal said that tights are not just for keeping warm in winter - with funky colours and patterns dominating the high street, they can now be a statement piece.

However, added the writer, women should be careful that they do not get it wrong in the office, as out-there tights could make a big difference to how people perceive women.
