Men in shorts – and other faux pas

Sir, – The recent letters about men in shorts have prompted me to write about the abomination of people wearing skin-tight leggings. Walking on the pavement behind someone who has fallen victim to the modern scourge of obesity and who is also wearing leggings is not an experience that the fainthearted should have to endure.

Skin-tight shorts and leggings are inappropriate on either sex, and, if worn, should only be worn by those with perfect figures. Those with bad figures wearing such apparel should be arrested for breeches of the peace. – Yours, etc,
