According to an article written by the Business Insider, men’s leggings are no longer just reserved for ballet dancers and male models —they are now common among all trendsetting gents.

"'Megging,' as the male legging is known, is now all the rage in sartorial circles,” quotes the Insider. "Celebrities such as Justin Bieber, Russell Brand and Lenny Kravitz have all been spotted wearing leggings, while fashion stores Uniqlo, Barneys and Nordstrom are selling tights for men."

Apparently, the megging is creeping its way into fashionable men’s closets everywhere, serving as a replacement for the popular skinny jean trend that has become more common among males in the past few years.

"Male tights are so much more comfortable than skinny jeans," megging-wearer Mark Dorosz told the Insider. "I've always had good legs and it’s nice to show them off all year round. There are so many people wearing exotic clothes in New York that nobody cares about a man wearing leggings if it works for him."

And so far, Dorosz says the feedback has been nothing but positive. "Perhaps people will be laughing around this in 12 months’ time, but for now they come up to me and say, 'You look awesome.'"

It would be nice on these types of report (or someone imagination) to qualify "men"?  Young adult, between 20 and 30, are still wet behind the ears and do not qualify a men (of course my opinion). So for those trendy individuals, have fun, and for the reporter (the person do the report), taking the world by storm -- NOT!

This looks to me like yet another case of where this lovely lady spins the big "Wheel of Fortune" (the Nevada casino variety, what you see in saloons in Western flicks - not the Vanna White deal on TV) and when the wheel stops spinning, the "pie slice" section that the pointer points at is your answer. How else could the "thing of the moment" have been the 1994-1995 O.J. Simpson trial, the moronic Macarena, the Bill Clinton impeachment, the Spice Girls and other crap that now most people would rather forget? Someone spins the Wheel and the sheep obey what's dictated to them.

This should not be worn by men, this is almost as bad as bicycle shorts. Why would a man want to wear these? This will make you repel women. Yuck. I don't ever want to see someone in public wearing these. Only good for men with tiny wees.

Call me crazy... But shouldn't a trend be pointed out only after a large % of the population is doing something? Not just because Nordstroms ordered a shipload of these things that they now have to unload?

Nothing against the lgbt communitiy, but is fashion becoming focused on just gay men? Or are they trying to make all men look gay? There is nothing masculine about half the, so called, fashion trends now!

    Fall shopping, decoded: How to get the most from every budget

    Smart fall shopping can’t be boiled down to some set-in-stone lineup of items. It’s much more about how you play with what you’ve got rather than just racking up a bunch of new stuff; sometimes your bank account’s balance simply won’t allow for a full-on wardrobe refresh. That’s when it’s important to know what’s worth it—and what isn’t.

    Cool collective: Fall’s best products

    Beauty editors are routinely asked to name three essentials they couldn’t live without on a desert island. So here’s our list: water, matches, protein bars. As much as we depend on beauty products, they’re not exactly essential to survival. These luxurious fragrances, nail polishes, and tools are no exception. They’re the anti-basics—hardly your medicine-cabinet staples. They won’t shrink pores or obliterate frizz, but they will make you weak with desire. And that’s a refreshing change of pace. Beyond just looking and feeling great, each of these cool new things appeals to our sense of style. How’s that for an SOS?
