Russell Brand: Man in Meggings

It seems to me that if guys want to do/wear anything unmanly, you just find something that women do/wear and add the word ‘man’ or ‘men’ in front of it.

brandLet me show you:

Man + Mascara = Manscara
Man + Bikini = Mankini
Men + Leggings = Meggings

Sorry, what? Meggings? Yes, that is right. We’ve all heard of Robin Hood: Men in Tights, but meggings are probably my most shocking finds to date in this Unmanly Blog.

Now, I thought my friend Brad was just throwing words together for a laugh, even google asked me: “Do you mean leggings?

Scrolling down, though, I did find results for meggings. Quite a few in fact. And quite a few mentions of that modern day metrosexual/reformed sex addict Russell Brand. All of a sudden, everything started to make sense.

For anyone who has seen Russell Brand do stand-up, it’s vulgar, smutty and a bit airy-fairy. He floats around the stage like a ballerina, throwing in a little skip here, a lunge there. But doing this in jeans would be a restricting task and probably take away from the camp persona.

Perhaps this is how he has become such a hit with the ladies and I am wrong to mock meggings. Perhaps the tightness shows off his ‘chap’ in such an alluring way that women love him. Perhaps meggings are the stockings of the male world.

Who knows, I for one certainly don’t see this catching on.

    Nice Studog. Couldn’t agree more, they wont catch on. And if they do it will be by guys with man-ginas…like Russel Brand.

    I love Russell Brand and his meggings. He is reformed now so you might not catch any diseases from him. Is this rant not just fuelled by a slight twinge of jealousy since you know you’ll never be able to pull off the alluring Russell Brand look?

    I think we’re all missing out on a vital point here… These are not any ordinary ‘meggings.Upon closer inspection of this picture of Mr Brand, I noticed they are infact LEATHER meggings. Forget the STI’s, think of the CHAFE!!

    ALSO, as a pear… Brand should know that drainpipe shapes do not suit his body. Perhaps he should’ve checked out http://www.makeovermymate.wordpress.com first eh! :P

    is that a shameful plug of your blog miss jackson? And as for jealousy, well, I don’t think my tree trunk legs, ginger beard and well groomed haircut would ever get close to the brand look. he is just too skinny and rugged

  6. kerry says:

    he is rather….and they’re not meggings, according to Russ: “I call them my Testosterousers, in an attempt to make them more masculine.”

  7. June says:

    Just to make a point..they are silk and believe me once you’ve experiecned the freedom of leggings why would go you back?

    as for attacking Russell..shame shame

    judge not lest ye be judged

    he may not be the rugged athletic type but he any man who can make me laugh so hard I nearly pee myself and at the same time have serious deep thoughts has my vote..and in truth the world would be a boring place is everyone was attracted to the same type.

    peace
    and remember
    if you don’t have anything nice to say keep it to yourself because it only makes you look bad

    Thanks for the heads up! I for one will definitely steer clear of the Meggings and anyone wearing them! Good looking out!

  9. NicolaJ88 says:

    June clearly missing the point that this article is intended in jest, and requires a sense of humour when reading it. The whole point of the blog is to discuss ‘unmanly’ things, and not once does he say your beloved russel brand isn’t funny. Stick to his fansite if you can’t take a joke!

  10. Hi, good post. I have been pondering this topic,so thanks for writing. I will certainly be coming back to your posts.

    nicolaj88, there’s no chafing you nugget, they’re tight so his bits are all held in place

  12. Russel Fan says:

    The funny thing is that he gets more action in one week than you will in your entire lifetime, and that the value of the book-deal he signed last year was 1.8 million, not to mention how much he makes from stand up, his radio show and the many presenting and acting parts he picks up. He might be a man in leggings, but he’s a man in leggings that could probably build a house out of his money and fuck a different woman in every room, and I’ll definitely be buying some! And I love his boots!

    Some of the closed minded people here should be ashamed of yourself! us men don’t tell you women what to wear, so what gives you the right to tell us what to wear? Leggings are very comfortable, and don’t forget were originally invented during medieval times as menswear!!!

    Why can’t us men have the same wide range of choices as women? Why are we restricted by society?
    So much for gender equality.

    I think leggings look great on a man under shorts or under a long tunic-style top so as not to show bits or bum.
