Weekly Vibe #42

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

Welcome to the 42nd edition of Legwear Fashion For Men's weekly vibe! Well here I am today at work typing this.. well at least just less than 15 mins of work hour left for the day. However working today for me. Was pretty fine but I was kinda disappointed that I couldn't be at church today... Oh well.

Anyways this week was pretty fine for me as after waiting for a month, my FALKE Pure Matt 100 arrived and here I am wearing it at work and blogging in it hahaha!

I recently made an order at Singsale on a pair of shorts with cotton leggings included, these were designed by an Australian Fashion brand Saxony, interestingly these were sold out so quickly I was afraid that I didn't get my order placed! 

Here is a screenshot:

Well the sale on this item is already over( as you can see that it's sold out too) but it seems that having shorts and legwear as part of a male outfit is seemingly accepted in a mainstream level now. I really wonder if I do get to see the guys wearing what they ordered out there because it would be really cool! 

Many hosiery retailers in the UK are having special offers because it's Bank Holiday!

That's all I have for you all this week do look forward for something special happening soon! :)

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

A month ago I ordered a pair of FALKE Pure Matt 100 from has arrived! It took quite some time because they were out of stock for the moment and shipping was pending. I ordered them from Tightsplease as there were a special bargain for FALKE legwear products and for the FALKE Pure Matt 100 it was going at a 45% off! And still going at 45% off! There are also other FALKE legwear products still on promotion, you can view and shop here

FALKE Pure Matt 100

Here are some photos of the package: 

I spent a total of 20.79GBP with shipping and with another further 5% off with a repeated customer's discount and a really decent price for a luxury brand.

I was quite looking forward to it as I have read really good reviews on them on Tightsplease and also by a friend Hosiery For Men, you can read his review on it here. 

After clearing my backlogs of my other hosiery reviews, I will review these in the time to come!

Weekly Vibe #41

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

Welcome to the 41st edition of Legwear Fashion For Men's Weekly Vibe! This week I was in the midst of preparing for our 1st Anniversary! And as I have tweeted about it a few days ago, Legwear Fashion For Men will be giving out tights to some lucky winners! More details will be up for the days to come!

This week was pretty fun for me as on Sunday we went for dinner at a Japanese restaurant celebrating my brother's birthday! 

Olivia, my brother's 3 year old daughter. 
Recently I have been noticing a shift in hosiery trends and observing what people are donning on their legs and I noticed that fashion hosiery are really having a place in many women's legs and Trasparenze of Italy have caught on and released their new line of fashion hosiery for their Autumn and Winter collection. Here are some:

Trasparenze Fantasy Tights
Trasparenze Grammy Tights
Trasparenze Moviola Tights
Trasparenze Designer Tights
All photos belong to UKTights, all rights reserved.

I have to say that I'm really impressed by Trasparenze's creativity! I personally can see some styles can also fit a guy, like the Moviola, and probably the Fantasy and Grammy Tights. What do you think?

That's all I have for you, have a great remaining weekend!

Thanks for reading!

Special Focus: Silky Dance Shimmer Full Foot Tights

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

Today we will be taking an in depth look of Silky Dance Shimmer Full Foot Tights!

These were one of the pairs of tights that were graciously sent to me by Legwear International. I gotta say that seeing these kinda fascinated me because I have never tried or ever thought I would get dance tights because personally I don't dance nor am I involve in dancing in any capacity. I was really thinking how these would feel on me.

First look

I really like the packaging for these tights,they were packed inside of a big cardboard slip with the clear plastic slip containing the hose.I was given a pair of Light Toasted coloured ones in L by Legwear International. As I took them out they felt pretty smooth and soft. These are 70 denier, had reinforced toe sand, tights were dyed to match gusset, sheer to waist(I doubt it would be nice to show your audiences your control top..)

Putting them on

It was pretty easy and smooth to put them on, although these were L, they could stretch pretty well and not beyond the point overstretching and these are indeed very durable feeling as these are made for dance.

Feel and look

These indeed felt very smooth and smooth to touch, they provide very good glide under bottoms as well. As you can see on the photo above, these are indeed shiny and it's shine is being enhanced with light reflected on them. 

Here is a look I have came out with the Silky Dance Shimmer Full Foot Tights:

Jacket: Thrift deal  Shirt:  Model's own Shorts: HUSH PUPPIES   Shemagh: Thrift deal   Shoes: ANDROID HOMME  Eyewear: H&M  Legwear: SILKY   Model & Photographer:  A. LUCIUS. KUNSTWERKE FABRIK

The following properties such as Comfort, Warmth, Elasticity, Compression, Durability, Opacity, Shine & Price will be rated by numbers. Eg.0 being the lowest of its property and 5 being its highest property.

Comfort: 4 out of 5 points

Compression: 0 out of 5 

Warmth: 3 out 5 points

Elasticity: 4 out 5 points 

Durability: 4 out of 5 

Opacity: 2.5 out of 5 

Shine: 5 out of 5 

Price: 5 out of 5 

Price 4.99GBP

Material Content: 68% Nylon, 31% Elastane & 1% Cotton


  •          S = 150cm - 162cm / 4' 11' - 5' 4"(Height) 82cm - 92cm / 32"- 36"(Waist)
  •          M = 152cm - 172cm / 5' - 5' 8 "(Height) 92cm - 107cm / 36"- 42"(Waist)
  •           L = 162cm - 178cm / 5' 4"- t 10"(Height) 107cm - 122cm / 42" - 48"(Waist

Colours: Light Toast and Toast

Pros: Very elastic and very durable, clings to you like second skin, soft, comfortable, smooth, shiny(good for dancers who want it), very decently priced, although the sizes may seem kinda limited however because of the good elasticity, it isn't difficult to fit into them & very suitable for dancers or performers looking for decently priced and durable tights & keeps legs decently warm.

Cons: These shimmer style probably won't be very popular with men who wanna wear them out with shorts and it will cause even more eye drops to their legs.(However if women are looking for durable yet shimmery tights, these are for you!)

To buy them go here


These dance tights were indeed very interesting and it was a great experience trying something new like these and now at least I know what dancers and performers wear! Also if you are looking to try something new, I recommend these tights!

Weekly Vibe #40

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

I hope you all had a great week! I certainly did have a great week myself! I tried a new "sport" on Sunday, I recently acquired myself a Nerf rifle! 

I actually have been thinking of acquiring for years but held back because I didn't know anyone who played these guns until I found out that a fellow cellgroup member of mine plays Nerf guns! Here are some photos we had done during match breaks. 

Just in case you didn't notice, I'm the guy with the mask on the right. :D

Needless to say I was very exhausted after running around, scoot and shoot! 

These week on the 9th of August also marked Singapore's National Day! Yay!! Meaning off day for me from work.. lol!

Now for the real stuff! I suppose you all didn't come here reading about Nerf and my life.. right? Hahaha!

As my dear friend Hosiery For Men blogged about a hosiery company, Glamory has released a new line of men's hosiery, you can check them out here

They range from support to conventional hosiery:

I'm actually looking forward to trying these myself soon when I do buy them! I'm really glad that there are hosiery manufacturers are willing to start a new line of hosiery for the men. You can read an interview which Hosiery For Men had with Glamory, read Part I and Part II

That's all I have for you all this week! Have an awesome week ahead!
