Men in Tights
Get a little added support

It seems there are lots of men around with balletic tendencies.

It's reportedly becoming a common phenomenon for men to don tights under their work suits and experience the friction of sheer nylon against an hirsute leg.

The Strokes with a disco twist: Rapture at Cargo. 8pm-1am. 83 Rivington St, EC2. £10. Few tickets available on the door.
Magical fingerpicking and vocals from Malagasy guitarist Modeste Hugues. 6:15pm. Theatre Square, South Bank, SE1. Free.

The added support is apparently seeing men from all walks of life hotfooting it to the hosiery counter in search of a pair of XL40 denier.

Pioneered by ace arrow-smith, Robin Hood, a new generation of merry men can enjoy the feel of he-hosiery, thanks to Levee's WoMan Tights, which can stretch to fit a man's proportions of up to 6ft 7inches. Designed for sharing are the 15 Denier Perfect Skin for £6.99 and 40 Denier Sensation for £ 8.99

There's nothing wrong with it, in fact I've known several men to wear tights before. They were, however, either criminally inclined or gender confused. If you are neither, still feel free to cut off the legs and wear them under shorts... No need to hit the gym, just slap on a pair of nylons and let the spandex hold you in.

WoMan tights by Levee available online at MyTights.com
