This is totally gay

I mean it, what sort of panty-waist would wear these:

If you thought men in tights was a sartorial statement best left to medieval jesters, think again.

The underwear staple for women is making its way into wardrobes of the opposite sex – and the look is gaining popularity.

If any were in doubt as to the strength of the trend, it even has its own name: Mantyhose.

Italian design house Emilio Cavallini has designed a range of tights that it says are unisex and the styles are being snapped up by men, who make up two to three per cent, or 20- to 30,000 – of the company’s customers.

Costing $27, the tights, made from a mix of cotton and nylon, were launched in June 2009, reports WWD.

Speaking to the fashion newspaper, the company’s vice president, Francesco Cavallini said: ‘When we started our online shop we noticed that a lot of tights sized medium-large were being purchased by men.…So I did a search on the Internet and discovered there is a cult following for mantyhose.’

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
