Dark Knight Sparks Men’s Pantyhose Fad?

Okay, first I talked about the Short Suit. Then the Mankini.

I’m not trying to turn this into a men’s fashion blog but they just keep throwing this stuff my way.

This article says that the Batman movie “The Dark Knight” has sparked a fad in men wearing pantyhose:

Retailers in Europe and the United States say that men are buying pantyhose — sheer, satin, glossy, opaque or support — in skyrocketing numbers in recent months.”

If this is truly a fad, I really doubt it was inspired by a superhero movie. Maybe some dudes just want to look “polished,” are going for the sleek hairless look.

The article also points out that pantyhose was actually a staple of men’s fashion in humanity’s past — but that women stole the idea for themselves.
