    Men in tights


    In the sentence below, what does
    "Men in tights" mean?

    Men in tights are good in Shakespeare, not so good in the gym. Paige brings you this and other fashion disasters we'd rather not see...ever...again.

    Thanks in advance

    "Men in tights" refers to men wearing tights, which is usually acceptable when they're dancing the ballet or performing in the circus, and nowhere else. It's just not a very "manly" fashion statement.
