Now then, you'll have to bear with me on this one and not laugh. The boyfriend is thinking about purchasing a pair of men's running 'tights' (you know, the clingy lycra jobbies). The question is though.... surely you have to wear something under them?!

Worn alone, they seem a little too 'graphic'.

Help me out chaps! Is this right?!

If you've got it flaunt it has always been my motto

The age old dilemma for us men!!!

I used to be of the same opinion however that cold snap in January made me venture to buy some tights (Tight been the word) and I now struggle to go running without them.  Having said that I will only wear them in the dark now so they aren't so' graphic'.  I wore them once in the daylight running down the canal and people can't help looking - I know now how women feel!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My OH wears shorts over his.

they are fine but yes gotta wear something underneath. As I run in the morning i wear the previous days undies under mine then throw em in wash at end of run

tights in themselves- if they are good enough for Robin Hood...

much to camp, its good to be a bit camp occasionally, but like everything in life striking a balance is usually the best option..... running tights are a bit to much, they are only marginally less gay than a pair of assless chaps.

try before you buy!

personly i would cringe if my OH wore running tights so stick to the shorts!

Nothing wrong with men in tighrs. Most of the men I run with wear tights, though I must admit they do go for the slightly baggy look. Still living so close to Brighton...

men who wear tights with shorts on top look more rediculous thatn just tights. i think those men are simply embarressed about having little willies!

As a hard Northern bastard I never wear anything under or over my tights... if fact sometimes I don't even bother with the tights...

You not going for the nuts then Loon?

...mind you, I do have to send the 'search and rescue' team down my undies after a cold run!

Lycra tights are for big girly jessies. Real men wear Ron Hill tracksters.

And anyway, tight tights make you look like Max Wall.

The women I run with don't complain!

Skin-tight-lycra-wearing-big-girly-jessie-n-proud. I will not be denied my equal clothing rights, it is my right to wear lycra in public and be proud of my alternative dress. We should be accepting of those with different athletic clothing choices, after all the choice and desire to wear lycra in public as a male has nothing morally reprehensible about it, unlike like smooth peanut butter eaters. Nothing under them, nothing over the top.

Say it once, say it loud, I'm in lycra and proud!!

I like a man in running tights   Whenever else do we women get to see men in tight clothing? It ain't happening in nightclubs, 'cept in Brighton...

 Ahem....furthermore, it's practical, aerodynamic, non-chafing etc...
