Panty hose for men?


Yesterday in my head cold stupor I thought I heard the morning DJ's on my favorite radio show say something about panty hose for men.  Actually, the word they used was "mantyhose" and I just couldn't believe it was for real.

But it is people!  I googled the word manytyhose and found the website, e-manicipate.  According to the website they are "a project to accelerate the acceptance of male pantyhose as a regular clothing item."  (They also refer to bra's as being organ specific clothing, but that is a whole separate issue!)

Ok, I have to admit that the male models they have showing off the mantyhose look kind of hot, but seriously folks, we all know that Joe the plumber is not going to look this good in his mantyhose.

So ladies what do you think?  Is this going to be the new must have item in your man's underwear drawer?

ARE YOU KIDDDING ME?????????? AHAHAAHAHAH! This reminds me of the Brad Paisley song "I'm still a guy" and how he SHOULD have mentioned taht men not only have lotion hands...but manihose! LOL

La Pixie said...

honestly? I kinda like the look. I dont like the word pantyhose, though. I perfer nylons. still, that sounds girlie. anyway, I would have to see my man in them before I could pass final judgment... and Im pretty sure he wouldnt put them on. ha

Carole said...

OMG i think I would have issues if he wanted to wear that. I have never heard of such a thing. Learn something new everyday!

Pennies In My Pocket said...

I just verped from looking at that picture! lol I would make my hubby get professional help if he even thought about wearing those, but that would NEVER happen.

haha

Kelly Deneen said...

hahahah! Those are hilarious! It makes me kind of gag to think about having to pull those suckers up against all of the man-hair they have on their legs though. Eek.

Miss Anne said...

....omg ... is it bad that i want a pair???

Ha!

Amanda said...

Ha! Ha! Ha! It looks soooo strange. I can't imagine this ever becoming a major trend.

Momma said...

That is just soooo wrong. Yuck!

Kristin said...

Wrong on so many levels. Yucky!

Saundra@ItalianMamaGoneCrazy said...

Heck to the NO!

It looks like a giant tattoo!!!

Can you imagine what Easter ones might look like?

Jo-Jo said...

I call my hubby a diva all the time (he is a news reporter) but I think he would draw the line at mantyhose. Seriously? We don't wear pantyhose with shorts, so unless they start wearing dresses I don't know why they would need to wear them. Funny!

Sam_I_am said...

wow. That's all I got. Wow. Are they going to shave?

Jen said...

Um yeah, not so much! They are kinda creeping me out.

Kelsey said...

I don't even wear pantyhose!
The minute I see an average guy wear those, I will be officially freaked out.

Honey Mommy said...

I am with Kelsey! I don't even like to wear pantyhose... why would a hairy-legged man want to wear them? Weird!

Lindsay said...

If I caught my husband wearing this I would laugh. A lot.

CC said...

Since my son loves wearing tights, I think he'd be soooo into these! ;)

Casey's trio said...

Ummmmm NO!!

Tina said...

I left a blog award for you over on my blog!

Mandy said...

I have seen this before and showed my husband who was not thrilled with the idea. :)

Liz (Loving Mom 2 Boys) said...

I'm sorry but all I can think of is the fact that my man won't wear anything but boxers...I can't see him enjoying the...feel...of mantyhose...I mean...well...you know what I mean...

mtnyoung said...

This isn't new....back in the days of the polyester leisure suite (yes, I'm old enough to have had my Prom date wear one)..... pantyhose for men were sold to get rid of the dreaded VPL (visible panty line). I never knew any guy who wore them, but I remember quite a few discussions about them.

As for being the new item in my husband's underwear drawer? Don't think so: my husband got really mad when I threw out his BVDs from high school.....last year.....

I'm just me... said...

My hubbs is a redneck construction worker / deer hunter. He wears long johns under his clothes for about 7 months out of every year. He would loose it if he even knew these existed for men.

Tiaras and Tantrums said...

NEVER - NEVER - I would kill him and he would just NEVER!

mommaof4wife2r said...

gross....it's just gross. and you know their leg hair is like sticking through. yuck!

Straight to Your Hart said...

WTH...? On a woman..yes...a HAIRY man? That would totally ruin the look of those cute hose!!! tehe:)

NJDecorator said...

Personally, I would run from a man who wore these.

Michele said...

Just one of those things that make you go "Hmmm?"

ella said...

this I would pay to see.
I just can't imagine it will fly, but let 'em have at it!
Do they come in XXXXL? With a super hi-rise in back for plumber's crack?

lisaschaos said...

No, no double NO! I do not want to see men in shorts wearing these! :)

Shannon said...

Uh.... NO. This is just wrong on so many levels.

Why in the world would a man want to wear pantyhose in the first place??!???!?!?

I'm going to have to show that website to my hubs... he'll have a good laugh!

Debbie said...

Good heavens, no! We don't like wearing them. Why would they want to wear them?

TuTu's Bliss said...

LOL If Princess Diva sees this she'll force Daddy into sporting them in no time. That girl could make him wear anything, even these and that is why she will NOT be seeing them :)

Jade said...

This is terrible! First the "ma-bags" now this?!?!! My son would NEVER be allowed to wear these...but then again 30 years ago, parents had heartattacks over long hair and peirced ears.See has the world evolves??? No limits-yuk! :D
