Just don't video yourself putting it on while driving with drugs in the car.

This isn't new.

Can they be worn under a kilt?

bwhahahahahhhahah. first the makeup, then the pantyhose and finally.....the underwire bra!!!!

I'm a lumberjack and I'm okay....

I may have to go for that. Then again, I'm a rather tall female and have a hard time finding hose that's long enough.

Hey, when it's really cold in the winter...never mind.

manty-hose. aha. why would anybody voluntarily wear em??? might make the boys a little, eeeh, uncomfy?

Hey, why shouldn't they suffer too?

To clarify for these confused individuals, when I said "I want to get into a pair of pantyhose" I was not looking for my own pair.

In defense of these, I know a lot of men wear pantyhose under their work clothes in cold conditions because they are great insulation.

But they would never wear them as a fashion statement. O_o

Wonder what Joe Namath is doing lately... He's still hot and would make a great spokesman.

cg - excellent maniacal laugh, but don't forget these

(Warning: Language is a little raw)

One of my co-worker's husbands was a diver, and put pantyhose on under the suit because it was easier to get in and out of with them on.

And my grandfather, the cop and former Marine, wore them under his uniform in the winter for the extra insulation.

I don't think I could get my husband in the same room with anything called "Guy Liner." Even if he didn't have to wear it at "Keith Richards" levels...

e-mancipate? More like e-masculate.

Indeed, they are excellent insulation in the winter, and not bulky at all.

And I'm guessing the push to get men wearing them is because women aren't as much. At least not the ones I see...even on tv...short skirts but no pantyhose.

Some of us just don't do the bare leg look all that well. I don't really have a problem with them...unless it's a pair that's just a wee bit too small, that I put on in a hurry. Hate that feeling of twisted pantyhose.

Under-Armour is WAY better for insulation. But I wouldn't know that first-hand.

This is real life! NOT Final Fantasy!

When we lived in Montana, I did a lot of bowhunting. Since the archery season is earlier than the regular season, it was quite warm during the day, but really cold in the mornings. When I complained to one of my hunting buddies about having to take off my thermals out in the woods in the middle of the morning, he suggested Winteralls pantyhose; in the super queen-size. They worked great, warm enough for those cold mornings, but comfortable enough to wear all day. My petite wife wondered how she ended up on the mailing lists for the "big and beautiful" catalogs. (I certainly wasn't about to go and buy them in a store!)

My Grandad did this at least 30 yrs ago. He worked for a pipeline in western Kansas (and a stint in Alaska that he picked up the tip) where the wind blows cold and fierce. I know several males that put on the hose to work, hunt and/or fish. I know I won't leave to hunt or fish without them in the winter. Easy to take off...but a real bear to put on if your freezing.

I like the idea of the hose under a wet/dry suit. That would make it easier!

Yes they are good insulation.

The push (or pull as it may be!) to get these items accepted as sociable attire for men, I'd bet, is simply more sales.

This has the cynical stink of corporate propoganda all over it.

The idea that this is a controvercial subject that we have to work to reform society and make it acceptable is ludicrous. Hose advocacy groups? realy? What's their slogan "We gotta fight, for our right, to tight"?

I think Susan tagged it earier when she pointed out that pantyhose use among women seems to be down. Wether or not they seriously expect men to adopt them for fashion purposes...*shrug* Either way this seems like a cheap way to get people talking about the product.
