Hosiery and Men
There are a lot of sites popping up on the topic of hosiery for men. With that said, it is interesting that in everyday, real world life, you very rarely see any men wearing hosiery. You see men with running tights or cycle gear but where are the men wearing hosiery or leggings? The deeper I look into the subject, the more I find that men not only enjoy tights and pantyhose on women but they like it on men and they like wearing them. With a quick Google search, hundreds of pictures come up and endless sites appear of men and hosiery of all types.
Tights and Shorts
The easiest way for men who have an interest in wearing tights, hosiery or leggings is to start very subtle. Although sheer pantyhose under a suit is subtle, you have to be a little adventurous otherwise you may as well just stay home and wear them. Tights worn under your shorts is a great way to start. Looking at athletes, they have been doing this for a long time and there has not been too much uproar. You can always test the waters before buying fashion tights by wearing black running tights under gym shorts while out running errands.
Once you get your test wear out of the way and realize it wasn't that bad, why not try wearing tights with a more casual look in mind rather than a sporty look. Why not try a golf shirt or button-up collard shirt worn with a shorts and coloured tights to tie it all together. Use your tights as a way to finish or compliment your look the way you would with a tie while wearing a suit. Depending on how you feel, pattern tights may be too bold at first but one could pull it off.
Depending on the climate and what you're doing, for cooler days try wearing thicker tights or leggings under your shorts. For those in between type days, footless tights or tights would work as they can breath more and you can wear sandals with the footless tights. On warmer days, give pantyhose a try.
