May the gods of fashion forgive us

As if watching ever Tonya, Debbie, and Henrietta walking around in leggings wasn't bad enough, may I present to you:

Yes, folks. This photo is not a joke. It has not been re-touched or cut and pasted from Winter 2006 Olympic footage.

Leggings for men -- I repeat: leggings for men -- have arrived for the fall. If I have one fashion wish this year -- correction: if I have one fashion wish for any year -- it will be that this is a trend that dies before it ever gets started.

(Though I feel a fashion sin has been committed by the very existence of the concept. I feel as if I should sterilize my closets after looking at that image. Dear friends: What would Audrey think?)

Mostly I think he looks a bit confused. Is this a gym look? Or a third date look?

In the words of one of my friends, I hope that model hated himself that day...
And who are these guys that are wearing leggings at home? Is this men's best kept secret?

AHHHH!NO! I can't accept it - honestly, and I am telling you this trend will not last! I know that my fiance wouldn't be caught dead in tights. Seriously!

I have to go look at some old christian dior books to get this image out of my head.

OH MY GOD! I just gave my husband a Chicago Bears sweatshirt and it was long and he actually says "Oh this is long enough for me to wear leggings under". GAHHHH. He was kidding but he saw them on the catwalk. My husband is all up on fashion.

That is too funny!
I hope you are well Tessa!!
