The pussy-fication of the modern male has just jumped the shark.
When it comes to style, guys are starting to have way more fun: donning skirts, braiding their hair and even applying lipstick and highlighter to their faces.But there is one trend even the most adventurous dudes have yet to fully embrace: lingerie.One line is trying to change that. Menagerié — we would have gone with “Mangerié” — offers silky boxers, lace pajamas and other fancy unmentionables just for guys. But if you’re imagining flouncy pink Victoria’s Secret rip-offs, you’ve got the wrong idea.“[We want] to bring more adornment and beauty to men’s fashion, but still remind people that it is a brand for men,” Menagerié founder Roman Sipe tells lifestyle Web site Refinery29. Hence the noir palette, clean lines and not-too-skimpy shapes.And incredibly, the two-year-old concept seems to be catching on: Menagerié’s Chantilly lace-accented low-rise brief, which retails from $59 to $69, is currently sold out, while its black-lace elastic “biker short” ($89) is nearly so. Even a torturous-looking waist trainer ($89 to $99) is sold out in some sizes, meaning that at least a few guys have bought these fancy Spanx-for-men.But while the response has been positive, Sipe realizes the idea of manly lingerie is a tough sell. “Most [straight guys] don’t think they need it, or couldn’t see themselves actually buying a pair of lace underwear,” he tells Refinery29.“However, there are a few who find it intriguing and simply ask things like, ‘Well, are they comfortable?’ ” And while some ladies may find the idea of a man in lace panties disturbing, maybe seeing a guy putting in a bit of effort in the boudoir would be nice for once.
So Ladies? What do you think if your man walks out of the bedroom wearing these? Does it make your body tingle? At the sight of a REAL MAN!
