When I was in my teens, there was a brief fashion trend involving velour. It is a material similar to velvet and it was used to make clothes for men and women. As I recall, velour was used to make shirts and jackets for men but not pants. This was briefly after male musical groups (most memorably Paul Revere and the Raiders) appeared in variations of period costumes from the colonial era, including shirts with frilly collars.
However, I don't recall velour pants ever being popular so I think you are right. There are just too many very conservative, very traditional people who see certain fabrics, like velvet and velour, as being undeniably feminine.1
