A Hoseowning Society

I’m wearing mine to the inaugural. From The Times Of India:

Men have invaded ladies’ fashion domain a little further, for after ‘man-bras’ and ‘manscara’ the latest must have for men is “mantyhose.” 

“Mantyhose”or pantyhose for men have become a popular sheer garment from truck drivers to cowboys… 

“Men have great legs and hosiery is a great way to show them. It’s quite practical in some ways. It prevents chafing, for example, when horse riding or cycling, but it’s also a good alternative to bulky underwear if you need some warmth,” quoted Harisnya, as saying…

“Not all men like to hide in grey uniformed clothes. It’s an easy way to dress differently, pairing the colour or pattern of your pantyhose to the rest of your clothes just like you do with the colour or pattern of your tie.”

Indeed. If you’re a stylish fireman, you might want to coordinate your hose and your ladder. But don’t ladder your hose.
