Men in tights - Good Idea - Bad Idea

In light of the hilarity of the Drifters boys at the Jhb section NBL, should guys wear tights?

I suppose it has nothing to do with the splitting of the said tights :wink: Kyle seems to have that covered though....

Ja, the eighties just never went away. As long as they don't have floral or psychedelic patterns. They're useful in the UK in summer when you otherwise tend to get eaten alive by midges (pommy miggies).

Yep Grigri, the idea now is to wear your jocks on the outside...no lines...& you look like superman :) . Seriously though you would think La Sportiva could make tights that could keep it together! Besides we don't mind if all the female climbers wear tights...no vote required there! In Europe I doubt the eighties ever went away, just the psychadelic lycra (some of the best climbers in the world have been seen in polka dotted bright yellow kit). The real question is if it's cool here...& I suspect we are asking the fairer sex to a large extent...guys just don't care...

I know! and we were so close! It was getting up in the night and walking around by itself tho, raiding the fridge and stuff, so....

Worst part of it is my partner left me soon after and took all my tights with her!!!
