Bitterwallet's Christmas List: No. 4 - the Mantyhose
You're going to have to help us out here, because we really can't decide whether this is a piss-take or not. There's no smirking, no self-depreciation - so we can only assume this is a genuine blog dedicated to a fashion craze that has until now passed us by - pantyhose for men, or mantyhose.
The name of the site is e-MANcipate and it's nothing less than wall-to-wall geezers wearing tights. There's a six-step guide to wearing them ("pull up the leg over your knee, feeding the material from the spare in your hands"), news of real men in tights, designs of the week and tales of an long-distance lorry driver who is a keen advocate of pulling on a pair. For medical reasons, you understand.
Owner Chan Kramer stresses the reasons why the media should cover the pressing issue of men in tights, citing the topic as a "fashion issue, a sports/outdoor activity issue, generic interest issue that could be covered from time to time, and the perfect silly season issue".
Obviously, we want some. You know, for the winter. Hey, if it's good enough for Robin Hood...
