You may have cringed upon first sight of them, while others may have immediately looked online to snatch up a pair. What cannot be denied is that these days, men’s leggings – also known as meggings – are one of the hottest trends, right behind chinos and skinny jeans, for a place in every man’s closet. Initially questionable fashion, meggings are now firmly in the mainstream for many men and as such, HomoCulture is here to break you in on the hows, whens, and wheres of the latest fashion must-have in (not so) outre fashion.
Meggings: A Natural (D)evolution of Fashion
Contrary to popular belief, menswear was not always baggy and loose-fitting. Less than 200 years ago, men routinely wore tights, from Brits during the era of Henry the VIII to Native Americans before the United States was born. The style was meant to show of men’s muscular calves and thighs, and that is the very reason why many men are opting to embrace the style today. After gracing catwalks by a slew of formidable brands, meggings have regularly been seen on fashion forward men like Justin Bieber, Kanye West, and Lenny Kravitz. Music and fashion have always done the dance and so it is only fitting that fitted attire is now set to dominate men’s closets once again.
Of course, any trend that is set to take off starts in the most fashionably progressive cities, and meggings became a huge trend quickly in cities like Berlin, London, San Francisco, and New York, where men are typically more inclined to show up and show out when it comes to trends. Meggings offer men more opportunities to express themselves sartorially, and as many men will attest that wear them, are a comfortable option and perfect for layering. Aside from comfort, they are also available in a vast array of colors and prints that make them a visually exciting option that can make any wardrobe pop.
The Makings of the Megging Man
Men that prefer loose-fitting clothes will definitely reel from the form fit of meggings, as will men that are not in the best of shape or feel more exposed. But for the active man, meggings allow the opportunity to rock out like a peacock. Fashion labels have sought to reach out to men eager to strut, and Kapow Meggings is one of the leading brands that have made significant strides in this style that many men absolutely love!
