It focuses on the runway - which, well, is never going to go "mainstream". And yeah, this is one of those articles, "The time has arrived for men's _______" which is repeated year after year. I though the only interesting "take" was recognizing men's athleisure wear as a trend.

The clue is in the closing line about NY Jets quarterback Joe Namath in 1974's famous TV commercial where he appeared in pantyhose and proffered the delightful line of, "If these can make my legs look good, imagine what they can do for yours!" The advert, of course, was aimed at women, but here was (for all we know) a heternormative "man's man" wearing legwear. It caused a mild uproar at the time.
I'd call the tone positive overall.
