Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

The boyfriend jeans style came and went and ladies are finally buying their own school boy blazers, so here's our question: Is the unisex hosiery trend revenge on women by dudes who have had their wardrobes pilfered for decades? Or is this just the return—nay, reclamation—of Shakespearean man-tights? Regardless, any good trend needs a good name. WWD is calling it mantyhose; we came up with five other options. Vote for the one you would like to see stick after the jump.
