A New Fashion Trend For Men: Mantyhose

 

Emilio Cavallini's unisex pantyhose

 

Italian design house Emilio Cavallini has designed a range of tights that it says are unisex and the styles are being snapped up by men, who make up two to three percent, or 20- to 30,000 – of the company’s customers.

The company’s vice president, Francesco Cavallini said: ‘When we started our online shop we noticed that a lot of tights sized medium-large were being purchased by men.…So I did a search on the Internet and discovered there is a cult following for mantyhose.’

The tights cost $27 and are made from a mix of cotton and nylon.

 

 

There were makers of  men’s tights before Emilio Cavallini from the U.S. and Europe. St Louis, Missouri-based G Lieberman and Sons makes a range of men’s tights in large sizes – and with front zippers included – while high-end makers, Falke, stock sizes that fit men. Paris-based makers, Gerbe, feature a range of men’s sheer black and nude designs on their site, worn with gusto by suave models in white shirts.

Ladies, would you be ok if your man wore tights/mantyhose? Nothing about this to me exudes sexiness. Remember the post about the men wearing nail polish, well, he can wear his nail polish with his mantyhose. I can see Lil Wayne rocking these…can you?!?!?! 😀
