This can’t be life. Apparently, because people who are in charge of fashion trends generally suck, “meggings,” leggings for men, are going to be the hot trend for men’s fashion in 2013.
Just when you thought skinny jeans were the end all of stupid tight pants for men, somebody had to take it to the next level with meggings, one of the biggest atrocities ever to happen to modern society.
Meggings have been worn by shitty public figures including Justin Bieber, Russell Brand and Lenny Kravitz, with major retailers Uniqlo, Barneys and Nordstrom advertising the tights for men.
One proud “megger,” as these terribly dressed douchebags refer to themselves as, is Mark Dorosz, 34, an English internet entrepreneur who lives on the Upper East Side in Manhattan.
“Male tights are so much more comfortable than skinny jeans,” he said. “I’ve always had good legs and it’s nice to show them off all year round.
“There are so many people wearing exotic clothes in New York that nobody cares about a man wearing leggings if it works for him.
“Perhaps people will be laughing around this in 12 months’ time but for now they come up to me and say, ‘You look awesome.’”
We’re going to do our best to curb this horrific trend by pointing and laughing at anyone in NYC wearing meggings.
