Mantyhose 'pushed as fashion must'
The newest fashion to hit the streets in hosiery soon may not be for women but men, with "mantyhose" becoming a possible trend if one style guru gets his own way.

Harisnya, a self-confessed tights titan, wears and promotes the legwear for men and set up the organisation e-MANcipate in order to make the item of clothing acceptable for the male demographic.

The British-based website is serious, he added, while promoting the range of benefits tights and hosiery may provide gents in the modern world.

Harisnya said: "Going to work on a cold autumn day in regular trousers with 20 denier hose underneath helps to avoid getting cold.

"Plus you won't ever have to worry about losing or matching your socks."

Earlier this month, the Houston Chronicle said that colourful tights, leggings and socks were the way to go this autumn, with purple, orange, electric blue, yellow and red all hues of choice for budding fashionistas.
