Conan O’ Brien Wears Jeggings on His Show — and No, He Didn’t Lose a Bet

Here’s another reason to love Conan O’ Brien.

After confessing to Tim Gunn during an interview about his obsession with jeggings and Tim Gunn telling him that men do in fact wear them, too, Conan then pondered if he could wear jeggings and wear them for an entire show.

True to his new “if I say something on this show, I do it” motto, Conan O’ Brien DID wear jeggings to the show the very next day.

The results were, of course, hilarious but also unexpectedly disturbing, as Conan chose to wear these teeniest, tightest men’s jeggings in the most unflattering wash ever made.

Don’t say I didn’t warn you. What’s been seen cannot be unseen. Here’s Conan O’ Brien rockin’ a pair of men’s jeggings on his show:

So, does Conan look hot in his acid-wash skin-tight jeggings or not?

He might have been able to get away with it had he not paired it with his usual shirt, tie, and blazer outfit, but I gotta salute Conan. It takes a lot of guts to wear something that skin tight on national television. Even the usually tightly clothed Kardashian sisters whom Conan interviewed that night were upstaged by the jeggings, and that’s saying something as the Kardashians are usually in the spotlight wherever they go.

Do you think you could wear these men’s jeggings (aka super-skinny jeans) if you’re a guy, or do you know someone who could? Or do you think men shouldn’t even touch jeggings with a ten-foot pole?

Thank god, Conan O’ Brien isn’t a fashion icon to start a jeggings trend among men. Or has he already? Let’s just hope it’s not as bad as the pair Conan himself wore, or else we would all have to burn our eyes.
