Meggings: the latest trends in men’s fashion in 2013


Male leggings – or meggings to those in the know – are the latest trends in men’s fashion in 2013 as they have already been spotted on outlandishly-dressed celebrities such as Russell Brand and Noel Fielding.

And this winter they have started to take New York by storm, sported by the likes of Justin Bieber and Lenny Kravitz.

Now they are expected to follow the skinny jeans trend by crossing the Atlantic to British high streets.

Uniqlo is already selling male leggings through its British website, with other retailers likely to follow.

Designers have been putting male models in leggings for years, but not everyone who tried them has been convinced – with criticisms ranging from “hot and uncomfortable” to “Where do you put your wallet?”.

One Manhattan resident proud to show off his legs is English internet entrepreneur Mark Dorosz, 34.

He told a newspaper: “Male tights are so much more comfortable than skinny jeans. I’ve always had good legs and it’s nice to show them off all year round.”

But fellow New Yorker Gabriel Cru, 35, said: “Men in tights? Get out of here. We don’t do men in tights in New York. That’s European.”

  • UnJeans Leggings

    Leggings for men is not a new trend – one that’s been around for years. As someone who sells leggings to men and women around the globe at UnJeansdotcom – I know people are wearing and enjoying them.

    It’s time to get over the body image constraints and go for the comfort. Just wear them. Leggings are perfect casual wear for women AND men.
    Having worn leggings for years, I’m aware of people’s comments both negative
    and very positive. After all, it’s not the leggings on the man but the man in the leggings. Everyone looks good in leggings and some people look great!

    If more people, women and men, wear leggings, then it will just be another apparel choice. At one time denim jeans were worn only by miners digging for gold. Now they are everywhere and nobody asks whether you’ve struck gold.

    So never say never – when you do decide to wear leggings, choose a well made pair – not with cotton fibers that bag out over time but a high tech fiber that retains its shape.

    No pockets on leggings? – no problem – wear a belt pack. When wearing leggings I’m actually more comfortable when my wallet isn’t sticking in my butt (like it does when I’m wearing baggies) Instead it’s conveniently at my waist with my keys, cell phone, etc. All your stuff is right with you and more accessible.
    Go for the comfort and support of a great pair of leggings and enjoy.
