  • I cannot contain myself any longer. I simply can't. After all these years of repressing my true feelings, the openness in this discussion and the way that some people are inable to contain the urge to declare their sexuality on a thread about standard running attire, I feel the time is appropriate for me to finally come out of the closet. Oh

Oh. That feels so much better now.

  • Oh I'm glad that came out three times. Is my point clear?

     Sorry about that.

  • I know it's been said over and over again, but this thread is useless without pictures.

  • congratulations, but you only had to say it once.  most people aren't that bothered (except the ones who wear shorts over their tights)

    rubber up, and have fun..!

  • JayVee, are you like beetlejuice? It must be a drag to have to say everything 3 times image

  • I think shorts over tights is a good look.
  • I think shorts over tights is a completely shit look

  • Can I just say one thing, if something feels ok, comfortable etc, whats wrong with a person wearng it.

    I guess its just we pigeon hole what  1) people HAVE to look like and 2)   Whats viewed as male and female and 3) whats "politically correct.

     In Nelsons day- and beyong a mane wearing silk stockings was acceptable - why ? cos they all did.

    No doubt tights were the same -from the 1066 -right through and beyong Tudor times, so in some ways the views we have now are kinda outdated.

     But you still need guts to wear tottally "fem" things. Lycra runners are no big deal at all-totally in vogue.

  • Some hilarious opinions here. Got 4 pairs of running tights (2 x Full length, 1 x 3/4 length and 1 x 1/2 length) and I'll wear any of them whenever for a run. It was chucking it down and cold last night and the full lengths kept my legs warm and kept the muscles safe.

    Where this 'Gay' comment came from I have no idea. Maybe these people should go back to their sad little judgemental lives and leave proper runners alone.

    If I was running in ass-less leather chaps, I could understand, but quite specialized running gear? How that could even be classed as gay is beyond me.

    And the 'Well I'm manly and I wear shorts all year' argument... This time of year....I'm cold. I don't know if you are but from now to the depths of winter I am.

  • If you wear shorts in freezing weather and think it's manly. Right after you come back from the run, take those shorts off and have a look at yourself in the mirror. See how manly you feel then. Nuff said.

  • for me, it's not a question of manliness wearing shorts all winter - years of rugby on wet cold muddy pitches have immunised the legs to cold until it goes sub-zero when I "might" crack out the tights.

    and there's no need to look in the mirror after coming back from a cold run - just trying to find the old fella is enough to tell me it's been cold!
  • Haahaa. Very true, the middle wicket has a tendency to turn into ashes when it gets a little chilly outside.

     Seriously speaking, it comes down to comfort. You should wear what you feel comfortable while staying on the correct side of the law of course.

    If you feel comfortable in shorts in the cold, great. I know a group of runners in Finland who run without a shirt in minus 20 weather. Without a shirt!

  • If I'm doing a quality session I would almost always wear shorts and a vest, only exception would be early morning in below zero temperatures.

    If it's cold (as in 5 degrees or lower) and I'm out for either a long run, or an easy run I would tend to wear full length tights and a long sleeved top.

  • "without a shirt in minus 20 weather"

    well I guess that is one extreme way of preventing nipple bleed!!

    > I ran with tights for the first time today. I have to say that two girls who were walking in the opposite direction were totally fixated on me I noticed. My conclusion therefore is that men obviously look sexy in tights. I think the fashion industry has missed a trick.

    I have been wearing my lycra nylon elastane stretched micro layer tights for years now, nothing under or over that would look weird. I get oggeled at , stares, looks and smiles, some girls comment and the younger ones just beam a big smile and stare also giggle. I love it they do too. some clapping and cheering when I go past a big group and whistled at. I feel like a winner. I do teach human movement and hundreds of college girls are too good to refuse and be prudish with. It is about time we just were out and proud . my thin tights do get a bit sweaty and become clear so leaves nothing to the imagination .
  • how did you post that picture tricky dicky? everyone wants to know.
  • I run in panty hose the top bit is thicker looks like shorts. only see thru in bright sunlight.
  • I know it's been said over and over again, but this thread is useless without pictures.

    tights are in get over it I say guys . be proud boys and show off the bulge . junk is there for all to see. we've been looking at girls forever .  just found out these were totally see thru when a girl wanted a pic in really bright intense sunlight . I wondered why I was getting strange looks and smiles .  I love these normally I would have a longer singlet . warm in winter and cooling in summer holds me tight and snug around my muscles and support.

    Showing what i'd call the 'Proud Boys' ;)
  •  I like to run in these I get alot of looks smiles clapping and whistles from younger girls who seem to just stare and comment in sheer disbeif mainly.  it gets hard when dozens of really hot girls run past and all oggleing and stunned and beady eyed mouths gaping and a look of shock on their faces but seemingly enjoying at the same time. girls first see me from the back and my crack then turn around to get a front view. we have been staring at girls butts for ever and see thru stretched cotton tights revealing their beautiful butts
  • Some hilarious opinions here. my more respectable tights . babes love this look. 

    Where this 'Gay' comment came from I have no idea. Maybe these people should go back to their sad little judgemental lives and leave proper runners alone.

  •  why do people think us guys who wear tights or these shorts think we are gay. I love u girls wearing yr skimpy gear and see thru tights and thongs up yr bums , thats why we need tight fitting tights to hold us in. 
  •  It's hard enuf as it is wearing tights , don't make it harder. you girls wearing such skimpy sexy gear isn't helping. I get up early and go to the gym before the crowds.  As I also teach I have to try and contain myself and in tights there is no where to hide.

    I wear tights running as I did cycling. The difference is when cycling, people can't se your assets quite a easily! If they stare, they are just jealous. At least now you know how women feel when they wear low cut tops!

    I reckon the best thing to do on a LSR is to store a banana down the front. Or you could go Spinal Tap and put a cucumber down there! Give them something to stare at!

    I love my see thru cycle tights no lining and I get mistaken for a girl and guys whistle and toot their horns and cruise behind. the look on their faces when they see me is priceless

    It's just impossible to give advice on this without photos first image
     It looks so gay if you wear pants over or under don't wanna have a VPI . seeing yr underpants would look seriously wrong and possibly get laughed at. I get enuf chuckles and whistles stares and comments as it is without drawing attention to my self with fashion pho pa's. I have had hundreds of young immature girls all just lose it and clap me out running and take pics .  It can get very hard out there if your being constantly ostricised and ridiculed all the time.  college girls are the worst when you run past an entire school or sports group/ they part ways and make you run the gauntlet and whoop cheer and clap you thru.  humiliating and emmbarrasssing.  It can get extremely hard and in these tights that are thread bare they ARE ALL LOOKING AT YOU .  
  •  I feel more comfortable in tights but when it draws attention I find it hard to not get affected . I do my airtasker handy man work in these and alot of clients  like to talk to me while I work . Have no idea what to say to young gilrs these days nothing in common.
