When Business Insider reported the existence of “meggings”—tights, worn by men, as leggings—the primary reaction was disbelief.Meggings can’t possibly be a real thing, can they?

Intensive research, which consisted primarily of a search on Google Shopping, revealed that meggings are in fact real, and you can buy them today. The primary vendor is a site called The Stylish Fox, which carries several varieties of meggings from a European brand, Adrian, which manufactures them in Poland.

The Stylish Fox reported on Twitter in September that it had very small quantities in stock but would try to expand supply.

These things are harder to get than a white iPad Mini with LTE, people.
