Not so fast, New York Times. The very presence of men's jeggings makes us question the report that sweaty, rangy, testosterone-exuding manly men are the thing right now. We'd really like to know how Racked NY conned/bribed a guy who looks like one of those newfangled manly men (he's got a tattoo on his neck and a pretty aggressive beard) to squeeze into jeggings and sport them about town for the day. His account yields such zingers as, "I felt?like a cat wearing tights on a hot tin roof," "Then there is the issue of the penis?It was, I daresay, a bit obscene and maybe too much."
