Mantyhose is 'great European fashion trend'
The so-called European trend of mantyhose - male hosiery, no less - is apparently going to take the US by storm, according to a new report.

Victor Fiorillo of Philadelphia magazine has been keeping track of the latest and greatest trends passing over the nation, with the fashion expert noting that mantyhose is looking less of a practical warmth issue and more of a general style statement.

Jimmy Contreras, the man behind the JimmyStyle boutique in the Pennsylvanian city, said that Philadelphia will be one of the many places taken by storm by male legwear.

He asserted: "I say yes to mantyhose. In the States, men are using them for keeping warm. Now in Europe, men are using them in their everyday fashion. In the last year, they've been showing up in Euro fashion spreads."

Toronto Life's Karon Liu was a little more cynical, however, with the expert laughing at one store owner's description that they were for "hipsters", underlining her argument that they were probably not really a trend that has a chance of taking off.
