    Want some opinions on what people think of guys wearing tights with shorts over them.

    I reckon it has the potential to make a decent fit if you do it right

    I didnt know it was possible to put the words mens and tights together. Men shouldnt be wearing tights and if I saw a "man" wearing them I would be concerned

    Really? There's quite a large market for mens tights now on sports website like adidas and Nike. They aren't at all like women's tights, they are properly thick and im some cases look like very skinny jeans without the discomfort.

    i think tights can look good on men, especially if they have muscular legs. i wasn't familiar with the concept of men's tights with shorts over them until now but i googled it and it looks kind of cool. think you have to look a certain way to pull it off though.

    People will think it's weird since no other guys do it (except for those wearing a costume). I wear running skins and shorts majority of the times (like the image below), though thats a different situation compared to yours.

    I usually do something like this but generally at home.

    I'll wear white long johns the thermal legging things for men. Then I'll wear shorts over them. I get told it looks weird.

    I suppose it depends on the length of what people call 'compression pants' cus tights sound girly I suppose. Well I'll try it tomorrow at uni and see what happens.

    TBH just go for it. I'd wear them out and about if I needed to go out. If you don't care about it then other people most likely wont care.

    Who knows maybe it'll catch on? hrugs:

    Nothing wrong with it. Its modest and yet comfy AF to wear if it's too cold to just wear shorts or too hot to wear jeans. Looks in trend at the moment. Basketballers wear this look now and I know a lot of the younger guys like to emulate this look.
