Our shopping pals over at Racked NY got writer Joshua David Stein to test-drive men's legging jeans, and we might be as big of a fan of them as he was. The leaps! The bending! The inappropriate-for-children stretching! Men on the street would be much more free and agile if they were all covering their bits with stretchy, stretchy pants. 100% cotton never looked so great! And tight. 100% cotton never looked so tight. [Racked NY]
