Ahem. Thought we’d lighten the mood a bit.
Upscale Florentine hosiery purveyor Emilio Cavallini is at the forefront of what it sees as fashion’s next big thing: Male pantyhose, or Mantyhose. The “hose for bros” fad has caught on in Europe and is primed to make a big leap across the pond.
Cavallini’s biggest-seller is basic black, and most men apparently wear their mantyhose like long underwear — “in other words, safely out of sight beneath their pants as an extra layer during the winter.” But Cavallini has seen ”men on streets across Europe wearing them with shorts,” too. And why not, asks Chan Kraemer at online male hosiery magazine e-MANcipate.com. “Pantyhose for men can be an everyday clothing item, and that it can be fashionable as well.”
