Mantyhose?!

Seinfeld popularized the Manziere, and now a UK lingerie brand called Unconditional is banking on men rushing to the stores to purchase their 120 denier thickness man tights (£70 a pair). 

David Walker-Smith, Selfridges’ director of menswear and beauty, said: “This winter the city’s most stylish men will have a secret weapon hidden in their trousers.

“The ‘mantyhose’ are extremely versatile and we expect men to be wearing them not only as a way to as a way to give legs an extra boost of warmth on the chilliest nights, but as a true style statement.”  [Telegraph.co.uk]

The only explanation that I can venture is that they are worried about Marc Jacobs’ bare legs under that manskirt he has been sporting at his runway shows. 

You Go Glamour!

Glamour Magazine is featuring plus size (that’s any model over a size 6) models in their November edition to answer the call of readers who want to see a body type closer to the one that they see in the mirror.

I salute their effort and can’t help but wonder if this summer’s call from Vogue UK’s editor,  Alexandra Shulman,  to high-fashion designer’s to create samples that fit healthy proportions helped encourage Glamour Magazine.  Glamour editor, Cindi Leive, announced this morning on the Ellen Show, that the magazine is making a commitment to include models with a wider range of body types.  Bravo!
