Style: Would You Be Caught Dead in Meggings?

Plus: Three new underwear brands for 2013.

In this video from ABC News, a group of beefy guys (and a few twink-y gays) try on meggings (leggings for men, if you’e wondering) and weigh in on whether or not they could see themselves wearing them day to day. I have to admit, they all look pretty hot — especially the guy who admits to going commando. The trend doesn’t seem to have hit Philly that hard yet, but, like most things, it’s up to us gays to initiate new waves in style. What say you? Should we slip into a pair and get this thing going?

With the help of The Underwear Expert, Queerty reveals three underwear brands to look out for in 2013. On the list (and in photos!) is a Speedo-looking line from VanWolff (available this spring), the British Armed Forces-approved Urban Active and a thick-wasitbanded line of briefs and low-rise trunks from Vancouver’s Garçon Model.

And on the Philly tip, Project Runway season 1 winner Jay McCarroll has begun an Instagram account. Follow @jaymccarroll to stay updated on what the local gay fashion icon has in store for his next collection. As of yet, there’s not a megging in sight.

    In the ABC story and the pic above, they are wearing what look like athletic wear akin to Under Amour or such. In the real world, the meggings I’ve seen look like stretch pants or tight knitted jeans and they are horrible. I hope they never catch on here. They won’t on me…

    I wear the athletic ones (Under Armour and Nike) biking and to the gym, but I’m a straight guy w/ family in the suburbs. I hope this trend grows and stays around a while, because leggings are practical, comfortable, and sexy. I hope it doesn’t end up like speedos, where only European guys get to wear them. Unfortunately American mens styles tend to be geared to the obese. I’ll keep wearing them to work out as long as I can get away with it. If men start wearing them on the street, I will too.
    I definitely like the ‘meggings as pants’ look better than the ‘meggings as panty hose’ look. Wearing shorts on top is lame. Shiny meggings with boots and an untucked shirt is hot.

  • sTitch says yes to male leggings, allow me to tell you a story;

    On the 28th of October 2012 two young city workers wore ill fitting female leggings to a fancy dress party in north London. These two individuals alongside another mutual friend have now tasked themselves with designing, manufacturing and selling male leggings to the fashion conscious male.
