Yes or no?

Personally, I think if you're physically fit and / or slender, you'd be okay in them.

Leggings are not pants..therefore if they are worn as such [on anyone, not just men] I'd have to go with a HELL THE FUCK NO. I've never actually seen a guy wear leggings, except super fem gay ones. And they wore them under shorts.

It is a question of combination if it looks cool or horrible.

I like combinations like this one:

I did find it odd that one person commented that men are starting look for clothing in women's closets. Well, isn't that what women did in the past and to an extent still do? Women now wear pants, jeans, suits, ties, boots--all clothing originally intended for men--and much of the world seems fine with it. So studying history is good for showing us where we came from, opening our minds and helping us to think more freely as opposed to just following what has been instilled in us.

I have no issue with leggings on guys. I wear sports leggings when I run or on the bike.

Absolutely. I also prefer to err on the side of modesty with a longer shirt over if I am not doing any athletic activity.

Has anybody heard of Stitch Leggings? http://www.stitchleggings.com

Any thoughts on the idea that a company will find a niche market for fashion leggings for men?

I think it's totally fine, especially if worn under shorts or multi layering. Fashion has room for everything and unisex clothing is probably one step ahead from most current fashion trends.

Very true. It's still fairly new in fashion and a lot have not gotten used to the concept that guys ARE wearing leggings not just in sports but also for fashion. I agree though, that if worn for fashion, layering is a must.

I'm totally cool with guys in leggings as long as there is no visible outline of their junk, and any bulge is small enough that its not distracting. A shirt long enough to cover the crotch would be a universal solution for leggings to work on just about anyone.

I never liked the yoga pant trend with women, but i think leggings can be pretty unisex. I mean what guy wouldnt want a pair of black milk leggings just for the designs by themselves.

I think this is a fundamental must for any person especially a guy who wants leggings as part of their wardrobe.

I realize there is no shame in being male and such but there is zero dignity in having your groin or butt on display if there is no reason to and you have the power to conceal that area as much as possible. It just makes others think you are an exhibitionist or pervert.

Careful planning of the outfit is crucial for guys.

If in doubt, put on a pair of shorts.

I sometimes wear Adidas shorts over 2XU leggings. Just depends on the outfit and the weather. Otherwise what is wrong with an oversized shirt?

Yes! I do all the time- underneath shorts of course. Black tights go well with shorts and look neat and spice up the outfit a bit. Also when it is not warm enough for shorts in spring, or most summer nights when it gets chilly I'd wear suntan pantyhose underneath shorts. Makes shaved legs look better, and provides warmth while not as obvious as black tights so it's a win win situation.
