Tights Are Coming Soon to Men’s Legs Near You

By

Today, NBA player Russell Westbrook of Oklahoma Thunder released an exclusive collaboration with Barneys and Jordan, trading his love for Rick Owens drop-crotch pants in favor of a snugger fit — the collection includes tights (multicolored, animal printed, and $165 a pair). Although athletic tights are commonly styled under shorts, as seen on Westbrook in the look book, it's only a matter of time before they break into the wild as a fashion statement on their own. For starters, the fashionable DJ Diplo already braved the look.

There are more where these came from; don't say we didn't try and warn you. Before meggings hit your local court, click through our slideshow to see other styles spotted on the spring 2015 menswear runways last month.
