But the bigger issue here are the trousers/leggings. It's something we've spotted recently around town as some men still refuse to admit that they don't have the legs for skinny jeans and resort to the worst of indignities - wearing legwear with more than 20% elastane.

Much in the same way a combover doesn't fool anyone into thinking you have hair, leggings don't fool anyone into thinking your legs are actually skinny. We can only hope that this doesn't catch on in any way, shape or form.
