Weekly Vibe #102

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

Welcome to Weekly Vibe #102! This week saw Legwear Fashion For Men accepting the Blog Hop baton as nominated by Hosiery For Men and recently posting it up this week. Personally for myself it was a great week for myself to unwind and go out on a date with a nice lady I knew years back and finally starting to take things a little further than just casual friends, and guess what? She is perfectly cool with me having legwear as part of my outfits! Woohoo! Hahaha! Sorry no pics till we get official! :P

What got me really really interested with UK Tights this week were that they got a really unique Wolford Limited Edition Jewellery Tights.

UK Tights are also treating customers to a free gift worth 10GBP for ordering any of Wolford Autumn Trend products

UK Tights is also having a special buy one and get the 2nd pair at a half price on their Levante Class sheer tights. These are great everyday tights for women who wearing tights have to wear tights everyday. However do get them quick because offer ends on the 2nd of November!

Tightsplease too are running a similar buy one get 2nd pair at half the price deal but with Aristoc Ultra shine sheer tights. And it is ending on the 31st of October!

Well that's all I have for you this week! Have a great coming week ahead!

Outfit of the Week #58

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

Welcome to Outfit of the Week #58 and this week we are featuring this outfit!

Featured on Dougaa's Flickr stream

Wow! Really glad that there were more than just 1 look from the same model from our previous Outfit of the Week post! I really like black grey combination, I really like his top! The grey collar thing he has on his top is really kickass looking! Although I am no fan of beanies but it seems to really work well here! It appears to me that his lower torso outfit contents are similar to the previous outfit we featured last week. I believe nice accessories to be paired up with would be a backpack something of a darker coloured shade and made of leather would be great as well! 

What do you think?

Blog Hop!

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

A few weeks back a good blogger friend of me Hosiery For Men threw the Blog Hop baton to me, you can also read his blog hop as nominated by Fashion Writer Linda Hobden 

So here we go!

1. What am I working on?

Like all if not most fashion bloggers, we strive to get as many attention and readership as possible, and I personally believe that fashion bloggers are the ones who impact fashion as a whole on the streets, because people are likely to be more convinced through words. Ultimately blogs are also media outlets and that I strive to bring to the public that men's legwear fashion are the "in" thing! I currently also am working on some backlogs of product reviews mostly from Activskin

2. How does my work differ from others?

Most male hosiery blogs focus more on hosiery product reviews in detail but what Legwear Fashion For Men does here is building up on the reviews by providing a fashion edge to things and the flow goes like this... "now that I know how well it fits, now how should I go on about wearing them out." Other than product reviews, Legwear Fashion For Men does weekly outfit posts(Outfit of the Week) for outfit inspirations and weekly updates(Weekly Vibe) for weekly updates on hosiery offers and happenings to my personal life to inspire other men to wear their legwear confidently. 

3. Why do I write what I do?

I always believe that there is more to it than just suits, jeans, pants to men's fashion, sure who doesn't like a woman with well turned legs in hosiery but like a quote from Legwear4men "Because Men Have Legs Too!" and indeed we do need warmth and support for legs, we work just as hard too! Most men would have worn hosiery but wear them under their jeans and pants, and gosh do you know how warm and uncomfortable it can be? Here we encourage our male readers to wear them with shorts and pair up them with shoes and clothing and accessories

4.How does my writing process work?

When I go hunting for outfit ideas, I will consider a few factors: 

1)Will I try something like that? Well if I wouldn't, why would my readers do it?
2)Would the outfit be too visually striking? 
3)Certain outfits only suits a different kind of audience. 
4)Everyone has a different level of boldness openly wearing tights with shorts.

As for Weekly Vibes, I will share noteworthy life events and also good hosiery products deals over the internet. Twitter is also a platform I use to promote this fashion movement, together hand-in-hand with other male hosiery blogs, we break new grounds for Men's legwear fashion!

I would like to thank Hosiery For Men for nominating to do this blog hop and also the support I get from various hosiery retailers and businesses like Activskin, UK Tights, Tightsplease, PantyhoseHQ and Legwear International that have supported this blog over the 2 years! Not to forget the fellow bloggers and most importantly the readers from all over the world!

Now I am passing the baton to Rob Speedking for this bloghop! Looking forward to read his post!

Thanks for reading!

Weekly Vibe #101

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

Welcome to 101st Weekly Vibe! I was recently passed on the baton by our friend Hosiery For Men for the Blog Hop. I honestly think this is a great idea, it helps to somehow bond bloggers together, exchanging thoughts and letting fellow bloggers and readers on what's next and what we do! I will be fulfilling this blog during this week and to be honest I am very excited about it!

Recently last Friday it was National Stockings Day and many women in the UK decided to "stocking it up" for Breast Cancer Care, Charnos Hosiery is really championing this with a donation drive as well!. And I think that beyond the profit from sales, I think it is great that corporations also join in the bandwagon of engaging in social responsibility and for that I really respect Charnos Hosiery! 

Photos from Charnos' Facebook page

Although I'm no big fan of stockings but hey, this is really a noble thing to do and I really think National Stockings Day shouldn't just be something that women embrace, men should too! I remember a blogger by the name of Phbalanced proclaimed an International Men In Tights Day on the 1st of November. Why not?

Fan of Gipsy tights and want to have a shapier you? UK Tights have just recently stocked up new Gipsy products! Check them out!

UK Tights also have designer brand Pierre Mantoux special discount of 20% and all you need to do is insert this code PM20 to enjoy 20% discount!

That's all I have for you! Have a great coming week!

Outfit of the Week #57

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

Welcome to Outfit of the Week #57! And this week we will be featuring this outfit!

From Dougaa's Flickr stream

This style seems like what I would wear personally actually, I really like his plait patterned shirt, it looks pretty unique, the collar seems to be like a cowl than the usual. His shorts have a unique styling as well, with additional detail like flaps. His low-cut boots are pretty cool as well, I like the brown detail on the heel area. All in all this is a good configuration for Autumn. Leggings are great for keeping warm, to be honest not sure if these are long johns, but come to think of it, why not long johns with shorts? I mean what's the point of hiding them under your pants, it will be more uncomfortably warm.. 

What do you think?

Weekly Vibe #100

Hi Creative and Fashionable people,

Welcome to our 100th WEEKLY VIBE!! Wow it's been 100 posts already meaning it has been a 100 weeks!

This week was really interesting for me because it was a mixture of a lot of ups and downs, I had a very cool and awesome Мумий тролль (Mumiy Troll) Tuesday!

Мумий тролль is Russian rock group that was formed in 1983 and it remains to be one of Russia most popular rock groups and boy is it a privilege to watch them perform! Russian rock has got to be my personal favourite all time! The coolest part was that on that day, lead singer and founder Ilya Lagutenko was spotting a kilt and legwear for his outfit! Woohoo! You can't be cooler than that!

Recently on Twitter, one of our friend blogs HosieryForMen has nominated this blog for a bloghop, and basically it's like a "tag-you're-it" kind of a thing which will require a willing blogger to answer these 4 questions: 

1) What am I working on?
2) How does my work differ from others in this genre?
3) Why do I write what I do?
4) How does my writing process work?

And so I have decided to take up this blog hop and today I decide to nominate Rob Speedking and Sachiel of Tights Under Shorts for this bloghop! Hahaha! 

And because of the bloghop and HosieryForMen's frequent retweets and favourites our relationship with Hosiery For Men and guess what? UK Tights also took notice of us! And now we are more connected than ever! 

Oh yes UK Tights is having a special buy 1 get 1/2 price on second pair for their FALKE Soft Merino Tights. Remember keep yourselves warm! 

That's all I have for you!

Have a great week ahead!

Outfit of the Week #56

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

Welcome to Outfit of the Week #56! This week we are featuring this outfit!

This photo was found in Dougaa's Flickr stream. This week I have at least seen 3 times different guys in the streets in Singapore sporting the shorts and tights look and I believe it is catching up! And I noticed most of the guys are mostly wearing them like our model in the picture above, a skater boy grunge style, Though the photo is black and white, it is very obvious that his cap, top, bottoms and tights are black. This is a really cool look and I personally really like it, though not really my style but outgoing friends can try this style! What do you think?

Thanks for reading!

Weekly Vibe #99

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

Welcome to the eve of our 100th Weekly Vibe, the 99th Weekly Vibe! This week was pretty tiring yet very entertaining!

This weekend was very exciting at church as we had Israel Houghton and New Breed in the house and boy was it great!

I recently also saw that WeLoveColors have launched a special Halloween Contest once again for this year as well 

Prizes are very attractive too, don't miss out! Check it out how to join here

One of our LAUF members also shared from Rocket News of very cool looking Japanese fashion tights and here some photos!

These tights from Tokone designed not by one but many independent designers  that also cooperate with each other, you can see more of their products here. There are really really many varieties and I personally could see some of them be dressed on men's legs too! 

That's all I have for you all! 

Thanks for reading!

Outfit of the Week #55

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

Welcome to Outfit of the Week #55! This week we feature this outfit! 

This look was featured in one of Dougaa's flickr photo stream. First impression I had with this outfit was that it gave a semi-formal look, leather shoes, black long sleeved button up shirt black leather belt and suddenly black shorts and a traveler-styled sling bag, a few minor details are his gel backed hair which looks very sharp and formal too. I actually also think that white opaques could have been pretty appropriate as well. This look really awesome for guys who want to look formal but at the same time look sharp. 

What do you think?
