Tights for Boys From H&M

Tights For Boys: Ga Ga or Gag?

Mommies wouldn't balk at the sight of tights in the girls' section but what if she saw them hanging near the boxers and briefs? Ladies enjoy the comfort and warmth they provide so why shouldn't their male counterparts? In the Victorian era, men wore tights regularly just like their lady friends. Perhaps in an effort to bring a blast from the past, the Swedish clothes manufacturer H&M is bringing tights back in a whole new way.

The $12 pair of navy car adorned stockings may have some mums and pops looking confused or horrified. Still some may find them practical and brilliant.

What's your take on them?

Some people have MAJOR hang-ups in this world.

Ummm, fabric will not make you "gay" America. So many people freak out about tights. Why is so much weight given to a non-subject. All the "issues" are between your ears.

people are so narrow-minded. so what, they are just tights, for god's sake. boys all over the world wear tights. and no, it won't make him gay. it is only fabric, is it any different than thermal underwear, except that it is far more comfortable and practical?

My mom gave me a pair of pants for my son that were my brother's. They were unlined and itchy and I asked how my brother ever wore them. She said she put my old tights on him under the pants and they kept him warm. I never would have thought of that (nor did I do it), but I definitely understand the practicality of it.

"And no, footed sleepwear do not keep socks from falling off, its one of the major issues we always had." Footed sleepwear negates the need for socks making socks falling off a non-issue.

"In my opinion, being so adamant against something like tights on boys without solid reasons is kind of silly and really plays into stereotyping. " however, i can only imagine these underneath pants when its cold, like at a ski lodge? but if they were footless maybe as comfy lounge wear? however the tightness at the groin is a bit revealing for my taste, but then a long shirt to cover it might not look that nice either. confused!

because its cold in some climates and not everyone blasts the heater? They work their way down and come off.. not exactly a hard concept, really.

It could be an extra layer under pants on really cold winter days. I think it's fine. Unusual, because we never see it, but it's not such a big deal if they're gender neutral.

My brother had tights as a baby and toddler. Even red ones : :D : My mom thought they were practical and kept him warm. I don't know, it doesn't weird me out. I live in Finland and here it can get really cold at winter. With tights you don't have to worry about bare ankles showing when the socks get loose.

Lots of little boy costumes come with tights. In my opinion, being so adamant against something like tights on boys without solid reasons is kind of silly and really plays into stereotyping. And no, footed sleepwear do not keep socks from falling off, its one of the major issues we always had.

Isn't that why they make feetie pajamas? So you don't have to worry about socks falling off of tiny toes? The main purpose of tights is to cover bums under dresses and skirts not to keep feet warm. It seems silly. Besides, these are pretty ugly.

Lil boys wear tights here all the time...what's wrong with that? They're comfy and keep you warm. Socks fall off little baby feet anyways! Maybe not for a 10 year old. But for babies and toddlers it's great!

Hmm. I'm all for gender equality and girls doing things that are only meant for boys, and vice versa, but I just don't think I could do the tights thing!
