Guys Wearing Tights!?

51 posts in this topic

I've wore them for around 15 years now, only within the last couple of years going out openly. I told my ex fiance I liked wearing them and she thought I was a weirdo but she did accept it as long as I didn't wear in the house in front of her or her daughters. I recently started shaving and it makes a big difference, they actually stay up!! I say if you feel good wearing them then why not 😊

I've added some photos to my contribution on the first page of this posting to show my enjoyment of wearing tights. I hope you like them.

I started wearing pantyhose/tights at a very early age. When I was younger I would wear them under my pants when I went out. Last summer I started wearing them out with shorts and have been wearing them this summer again. In all of the times I have been out I have not had one person say anything to me about them. As far as I know I have not had any strange looks either. I just go out about my own business as if I don't even have them on. It is a great feeling to be able to go out like that.

During winter I wear tights everyday under my jeans. They are warm, comfortable and, yes, I like the feeling too.

I regularly shave my legs and the feeling it's amazing, never get tired of it.

In summer it's to hot for wearing even 8/10/15 den unless I wear a skirt... so I'm confined at home.

Wife knows about Francesca and tolerates her. She knows and approves about me wearing in winter.

I just wish that men can wear whatever they like exactly as women do.

I wear tights under my pants everyday in cold weather to keep warm but mostly because they just feel so good.Sadly it is just to warm for them now.

I like to wear tights under my jeans for warmth, just everyday tights for practabillity and comfort and for pleasure it's the sheerest sheer to the waist I can get, such a lovely feel!

Nothing like a pair of glossy or glitter tights do have others. But there's just something about a glossy look or the glitter look that I love most.

Keyt to terminology :-  
UK English - US English 
Tights - Pantyhose
Pants  - Under Pants 
Trousers - Pants 


I'm a heterosexual man and love wearing tights, I started wearing tights to keep warm in winter, when I was 21, (about  27 years ago) while working as a security guard, initially I only wore tights when at work but after a few months I started wearing tights everyday all through the winter, despite leaving the security job about 17 years ago I continued to wear tights every winter. 


From the security job I moved on to working with horses after about a week, I started to get sore patches at the tops of my legs when riding the horses, so having tried different types of pants to no avail and discounted going commando, as both unhygienic and risky, (ie. Your sat so high off the ground on a horse that should the fly zip on your riding trousers fail or just come down , putting it politely you will have enough on show to get arrested for public indecency)I switched to wearing tights under my riding trousers instead of pants and socks, the sore patches quickly cleared up, so for the 10 years that I worked with horses I wore tights 7 days a week in winter and 5 days a week for the rest of the year 


Last year the same problem as above started to happen when I was wearing fashion Jeans so I have decided to wear tights instead of pants and socks under my jeans/trousers all year round and have thrown out all my pants, the only time I wear socks now is over my tights when I'm wearing steel toe cap work boots. 


I've found that wearing tights is a lot more comfortable, and feels much nicer than pants and socks ever did, I now wish I could have worn tights all the time from when I was a child. 


Even if I found an alternative to wearing tights that wouldn't cause the sores on my legs I'd still stick to wearing tights instead of pants and socks, why should I go back to a less comfortable option that doesn't feel as nice to wear, just to satisfy somebody else's daft social protocol. 


My infants school insisted that boys wear shorts all year round, I  envied the little girls in my class, they had to wear tights in winter as part of their school uniform, and were all nice and warm wearing their tights, especially in the snow, by the time us boys had walked to school in the snow or on a frosty morning our legs were turning blue, I'd be wishing boys were a allowed to wear tights and that the school had made tights a compulsory part of the boys winter school uniform. 


Why do people make such a fuss about boys and men wearing tights, girls and women can go out dressed entirely in boy’s/mens clothes without anyone commenting or making a fuss, all we want  to do is wear tights, mostly for practical reasons but even if we just like wearing tights we shouldn't have to worry about justifying it to anybody else. 


The reason  the idea that only girls and women should wear tights exists at all, is a random marketing decision that was made a long time ago “to limit the marketing of tights, to being sold as a garment for girls and women only”, not a very good marketing decision given it cut the potential market for tights by 50%, the other manufacturers/suppliers  followed their example, but only in the UK, US and a few other mostly English speaking countries, in the rest of the world or at least the colder parts of the world, tights are marketed and worn as a unisex garment 


The only problem that I have had with tights is that not only is the sizeing of the tights different from one manufacturer to the next, not all manufacturers/suppliers provide a size gide or if they do it gives the equivalent dress/skirt size , rather than mesurments, dress/skirt sizes are meaningless to me and probably most other men, I end up having to search for dress/skirts and try and work out how to find the sizeing information from that, unfortunately tights manufacturers don't tend to make dresses and skirts so your using measurements from a different garment and manufacturer, which isn't very reliable, especially since a lot of women complain about the measurements and fit for a given dress/skirt size being totally inconsistent from one manufacturer to the next and dress/skirts not being even vaguely similar to tights 


I've noticed when reading reviews of tights online that a lot of women don't find it any easier to interpret the manufacturer's sizeing than I do, I also found out from reading the more detailed reviews, that how well the tights fit is not gender pacific apart from when the tights are too tight around the hips for a woman a man is unlikely to have the same problem, otherwise the same size pair of tights either fit a woman of the same height and waist size as me, for the same reasons they fit me, or don't fit a woman of the same height and waist size as me, for the same reasons they don't fit me. 


Note l post reviews of the tights I buy online under my full name hopefully if you all do the same it will encourage manufacturers to create unisex size guides for their existing girls & womens tights ranges


It would be a lot easier if the manufacturer listed the waist and hips measurements against the length from gusset to waistband starting from the minimum waist and hips measurement and going up the standard waist sizes to the maximum waist and hips measurement (or just the maximum & minimum waist & hips measurement and the gusset to waistband measurement if the gusset to waistband measurement is the same for all waist and hips measurements) and the minimum &  maximum leg length,width of leg  and shoe size  for each of the sizes of tights in their range , this would take a lot of the guesswork out of the buying tights since most people already know most of the above measurements and it's easy enough to measure yourself to find out the ones you don't know 


Note creating easy to understand unisex size guides for their  existing women's and girl's tights ranges would be a cheap, easy and low risk way for manufacturers/suppliers to expand their market to include men and boys and improve their existing marketing for women and girls tights
