    Being Scandinavian I can honestly say, that I have never seen a man wearing legwarmers. Nor do the people I know tuck their pants into their socks :D
    The thigh high pirate boots, however, were a big hit among Danish teenagers one or two years ago… Hmm..

    Thank you for a good show!

      Oh well…I guess we’ll chalk the tucked in jammie bottoms to a quirky stylist then. ;)

      That’s funny about the boots. They’re actually kind of cool looking, but I’m way too short to pull them off. LOL

    in the eighties it was pretty hip to tuck your pants into your slouchie socks!

    Oh dear. I feel a little apprehensive owning up to this but when I lived in Canada (up until this year) I wore my pants tucked into my socks. It kept the draughts out. Also, if you wear em to bed that way your pant legs don’t end up above your knees, leaving your calves to freeze. Sidenote: I didn’t keep the heat up that high. It is probably not a normal practice ;)

    I’m an icelander and people tuck their pants into their socks up there … it’s simply warmer.
    I currently live in Denmark and I still do it and I don’t care what it looks like
    I grew up on a farm and having your pants tucked into your socks makes the whole putting outer-wear on alot easier and you have to do that several times a day so people don’t bother with pulling them out of their socks between being outside and being inside …
