I just read a very disturbing article and saw some disturbing videos. Read and watch at your own risk!
Asylum.com Article About Men in Jeggings:
Okay, are you sitting down? If not, please do so before you watch the video below.
Video: Conan O’Brien Does His Opening Monologues in Jeggings:
Could this be happening? Could men actually start wearing the supertight pants. Well, so far, it seems to be nothing more than a joke, but what if it caught on? Could you picture men walking around in jeggings and leggings. Now I’ve seen guys lately rocking the tight, skinny jeans, but men in super-skintight Spandex or Lycra pants is off-the-chain.
I admit that I’m very, very happy to see that big, oversized jeans style go away with guys under-drawers showing and their crotch at their knees in pants big enough for like three people to fit into. Skinny jeans are much, much better, but I don’t think I can handle men in jeggings.
Whether a man is slim, big or muscular, it would be an atrocity. Try to picture the following people in jeggings or leggings: Hulk Hogan, Justin Timberlake, Justin Bieber, Michael Clarke Duncan, Russell Crowe, Peter North or Ron Jeremy. Okay, right now you are either cracking up laughing or you’ve passed out!
Well, I got a little taste of men in Spandex when Joe Jonas did his YouTube.com spoof of Beyonce’s “Single Ladies” in a skintight black catsuit. I still don’t think I’ve recovered. It was just all kinds of wrong, but it was pretty damned funny.

Justin Timberlake did one also:
Here is the problem I have with men in jeggings and it’s no different than a larger woman wearing jeggings. These pants show every bulge, ripple, nook, cranny, crevice and then some. When I was in my twenties, leggings were happening and now they are back again and have morphed into jeggings and I’m about to hit fifty. Things are a little bit different now I would say. Do I still wear jeggings and leggings? Hell to the yeah, but I have a rule and that is to only wear them with oversized tops, tunics, short dresses or long sweaters. At this age, I’m sure nobody wants to see the junk in my trunk encased like sausage meat in thin, skintight pants. I am not a skinny women and I do look in the mirror before I leave the house but apparently some women don’t and I have seen some pretty scary things stuffed into leggings and jeggings; some so bad that it singed my pupils LOL.
I’m just saying, leggings and jeggings are fine if worn appropriately no matter what size a woman is, but these just do not work for a guy. I do not want to see their crotches bulging like male ballet dancers in leotards walking down the streets. That’s just not right. Even with a big, long shirt. It’s still all kinds of wrong.
I know the above videos were silly spoofs and just for laughs, but wouldn’t it be something if this trend caught on. The world would never be the same again.
