Read an article today about a new trend: leggings for men or “meggings” as they are being called. The term sounds suspiciously similar to “meggae”, a lightly derogatory slang word used in Trinidad either verbally or with the accompanying hand gesture. When used, it means you think the recipient is an idiot and therefore I think the title is quite apt in this situation.

Only an idiot could wear one of these and think he was being sartorial. Apparently Marni sent loads of them down the f/w 09 runway, so we’ll have to see whether the trend gets picked up.
