Let's Not Turn Men In Tights Into "Meggers," Okay?

"When trendsetters speculated what would be the defining men's fashion movement to sweep New York this winter, few opted for the male legging. But 'Megging', as the male legging is known, is now all the rage in sartorial circles."

I had to look up what a "wally" was. And yes, it's the perfect description of a man in tights.

Why can't we just say "legging?"

Because apparently a man in stretch pants needs a good butch-sounding word to justify choosing this garment.
Perhaps even more than a dance belt.

Oh, cool! Now I just need a cutesy name for my line of affordable codpieces.

"Megging": the Question.

The joke is that this started at least five years ago, right? Union Square, Summer 2007. Two NYU students with tribal ear plugs, porkpie hats, and non-scrip glasses. Never Forget!

Clothes come and go, but saying things like "all the rage" is apparently timeless.

@Niko Bellic Can I add you to my Sartorial Circles?
