Male Leg Warmers

I thought I understood the purpose of leg warmers. They seemed so practical. They seemed to scream, "I am a beautiful women, I have great legs and they look amazing in a skirt, but it is winter and it is so cold outside.
I know I can wrap warm cloth around my legs that I can easily remove when I am in doors and put on when I go outside." Best of both worlds...

Now I am a big fan of shorts, I have nice man legs and face a similar problem as a native of a cold climate...

Could leg warmers work for a man too? I know they look silly but I am kind of a function over form guy and can deal with the trade off if it allows me to wear shorts in the winter once and a while.

I guess there is only one was to find out. I put a pair of shorts on and some leggings and went to the gas station and grocery store...

I have been called a lot of names as a gadfly and social antagonist but nothing quite as vulgar and equal as the stares I received for this little stunt. I guess the world is just not ready to see my white thighs peaking out of a pair of leggings in the dead of winter.

After all this I saw a woman pass by me wearing leg warmers over jeans?!?!? It was then I realized I have no idea what leg warmers are for...

Pictures coming soon

This I have to see . . . I have to admit, I haven't worn any leg warmers since the early eighties in jazz dance class. I'm not sure it's a look that is meant for me, but you might be able to bring it back!

I'll send you $5 if you wear leg warmers over your jeans to work. Proof is in the pictures.

Brian....you need a woman to keep you from doing such things .... lol. I'm scared of the pictures to come, but maybe I'll scrap them.

I like Muffy's idea... I'll send you another $5 if you wear cowboy boots with the legwarmers and jeans. A mesh tank top would look good with that outfit.
