Leggings for Men

4:30 PM -- Oh my, leggings for men? You shouldn't have. Really, you shouldn't have.

Yep, supposedly hip designers Marni have come up with what has to be the worst idea for a clothing trend since zuba pants, a.k.a. clown trousers.

Apparently, Marni is calling them as "sophisticated." I'm at a loss to see how any apparel with "bottom stirrup straps" merits that designation.

re: Leggings for Men Hello-
I'm a fellow reporter, covering trading technology out of NYC. You made my morning with your entertaining commentary. IF it were, Karl Lagerfeld or Marc Jacobs, even if they were leggings for men, we'd all be too afraid to say anything assuming the decision to show ghastly 90s reject clothing items at a major fashion show is some major art or political statement about the zeitgeist, but Marni?! This is just bad judgment! I agree with you 100%. Please, throw these away with all the pleated khakis and cotton turtlenecks that should've gone to Goodwill.
Happy Friday,
