Well it’s a new year for almost everyone (Chinese still have a month to go!) and it’s a good time to reflect on what’s happened and how far men’s lingerie has come along.
As we’ve said before, we’re really happy with HommeMystere and the progress we’ve made. ?We’ve seen plenty of new customers, newsletter subscribers and visitors throughout the year and also seen our range of garments expand with increased production runs as our style becomes more popular.
But is lingerie style underwear becoming more acceptable for guys? ?Why is it still an underground kind of movement? ?Strangely enough, a guy would be more likely to talk about sex toys or ‘come out’ than admit he likes to wear frilly panties. ?Now we’re seeing Gay marriage becoming acceptable in various parts of the world, marijuana is legal in some areas of the US and Miley Cyrus gave us twerking!
Beats me why guys wearing lingerie is such a big deal!
No doubt many of our customers will continue to hide their lingerie collections at work or in the back shed, indulging only when they have the house to themselves. ?Their wives/girlfriends will continue to be ignorant, or if they do know, be clear they don’t approve of the practise.
Are we seeing men’s lingerie at the same stage as the gay community endured 30 years ago? ?I hope not but if that’s the case then we’ll continue to push for men’s lingerie to be accepted by the wider community.
Life is too short to have it directed by the Fun Police. ?May as well enjoy it while you can!
Cheers everyone. ?May all your lingerie be Satin – or at least 85% polyamide and 15% spandex!
