Weekly Vibe #131

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

Welcome to Weekly Vibe #131!! June is here! That means we are half way through 2015! Wow!! This week was pretty interesting I was engaged in a long friendly conversation with Mandarin speaking men who wear tights as well, actually I hardly speak Mandarin Chinese as I converse in mostly English and Russian with my Russian teacher, what makes it harder was that I had to type in Mandarin and that's like even challenging as I had to remember once again how certain Mandarin words meant, you may have same sounding words but they mean totally different and each word sound differently too. If you learnt or know Mandarin you would know what I mean! 

One of them you probably might know is from China, who was featured on Hosiery For Men beforee and he is an avid fan of Wolford tights and he is none another than Wu Xiao Jie!

Another friend hails from Malaysia and just works in Singapore too! I'm really hoping to meet him some day for a chat! 

Coming this week I will be making an order for a friend who wants to try ActivSkin tights for the first time as he is looking to train for his coming military fitness proficiency test. I'm really excited to see how he would react to wearing hosiery for the first time! He is interested in the A876 Thermofabric full support Footless Tights with Fly

Outfit of the Week #87

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

Welcome to Outfit of the Week #87!  And this week we are featuring this outfit!

Photo source: Manolito_JaJa's tumblr page

A contemporary yet simple style this model carries, this makes a good winter outfit, a long black pull over, black shorts, black opaque tights, black shoes. This is what I would do as well and I have done so when I was in Taiwan, very mobile, needs no buttons! You don't even need to wear all black too, I think a grey pull over would have been fine too! You could go for patterned opaques too! I would recommend patterns such as these

These are tights from Zohara, personally looking forward to trying them on myself!

What do you think?

Weekly Vibe #130

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

Welcome to Weekly Vibe #130!! Awwwww yes!! I completed my first Vertical Marathon of the year!

This time I was wearing Lottie May's LM Glow tights, in fact I wore 2 pairs, I just felt the need for the support and it was pretty good! I took 20 mins and 33 seconds to climb the 64 storey skyscraper which meant I took about an average 30+ seconds for each level. Awesome experience once again! And right after my race, I attended church and after lunch one of my cellgroup brothers actually like after 3 hours of walking with me, noticed that I was wearing tights and he was actually looking for tights and asked me for recommendation and I immediately pointed to ActivSkin and he will most likely go for the footless A876, although I commented to him that these are not the usual athletic tights but are hosiery, it didn't turn him off as he was looking for functionality and we shall see how we go from there! Potential convert!

Fans of Glamory hosiery will be happy to know that UK Tights is having a 15% off their Glamory line of products, which also includes Glamory For Men! Do note that it is ending by the end of the week!

UK Tights also has a 10% off their Pretty Polly line of hosiery products, PP products priced decent, and not overly expensive and with the additional 10% off you are getting very good deal on them! Do note that offer ends 27th of May!

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

Outfit of the Week #86

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

Welcome to Outfit of the Week #86! This week we will be looking at this outfit! 

Photo from Tights4men Tumblr page

Nice patterned tights!! He spots a semi sporty look, he looks to be ready to go out and to hit the gym, generally outfits like that are okay for me, for me if I was going to do the gym, I would wear running shoes, sport shorts and my sports tee and if I'm out I would dress like I'm going out not in between.. but that's just me! I still think he looks cool! To be honest I would feel a little hesitant wearing semi-opaque tights but with patterns, I wouldn't mind!

What do you think about this outfit?

Weekly Vibe #129

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

Welcome to Weekly Vibe #129! This week was very "foodful" week for me, I think I kinda really ate too much this week! I had like a Shabu(Japanese hotpot) on Wednesday and Sunday lunch was Jjigae Chongol(Korean hotpot) and dinner was Korean style fried chicken! 

Oh and actually dinner was with my girlfriend's family! And I was wearing tights and I wasn't wearing black opaques as they were the best choice for "stealth" but I was wearing these!

And seriously I was hoping none of them took notice but they did!!! Oh my GOSH!!! Well I didn't expect I was going dine with her siblings plus their spouses their kids and their mum on that day! But anyways it turned out pretty cool! They didn't give that weird face, at first they thought that my shoes were that cool then my girlfriend uttered out.. "Yeah they are actually stockings! And he has his own blog that's really popular overseas and he gets support from hosiery retailers too!" And my girlfriend's eldest sister was like.. "Wow that's so good!" Man... seriously what an ordeal! But you know what? That meant I could comfortably wear tights freely and openly with them around! Man seriously what an awesome girlfriend I have!! Love her! 

Anyways now to our hosiery deals report! UK Tights is having a Buy One Get One 1/2 Price for their Wolford Satin Touch 20 Tights & Knee Highs

Wow looks like they are really full steam ahead selling these as this isn't their first time promoting this product!

Last but not the least, Tightsplease is having a flash sale for their fashion line of tights with up to 40% off selected items!

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

Outfit of the Week #85

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

Welcome to Outfit of the Week #85! This week we are featuring this outfit!

Photo from Tights4MenTumblr page

This is one very casual yet a safe outfit to wear, I'm liking the clean looking white shoes, very nice black and white combination going on there! The black opaques I feel really completes the look there! This is a great daily casual outfit to wear! Depending on where you get them, And it seems like everything on our model wouldn't set you aside too much cash and I think it's pretty affordable as well! I believe this outfit is also a good start for men wanting to try out tights with shorts! I don't see why not!

I'm like totally on for this outfit, what do you guys think?

Thanks for reading!

Outfit of the Week #84

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

Welcome to Outfit of the Week #84!! This week we will be featuring a personal inspiration of mine, Don from China!

Photo from Don's Lookbook page

Don is actually the first fellow Chinese I encountered on the internet who dons tights with his outfits, all of his outfits are mostly cool and bold at the same time, I believe he happens to be a ballet dancer as well, and you can see it very well shown in figure.

Nice and rocker like outfit he has there, leather blazer, T-shirt, denim shorts, black opaque tights and brown low boots. This outfit is something that guys who are a little braver or why not just take a dive and try it? When the weather starts getting cooler I will start doing it again, it's really getting warm here and sometimes just sleeping with the fan on, I still pespire waking up in the morning! That's how bad it is! I hope the heated season will pass soon!

Outfit of the Week #83

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

Welcome to Outfit of the Week #83 and this week we are featuring my outfit of the week! Hehe!

This look was featured on Street Legwear Fashion #Mayday 2015. In this outfit I decided to go with mostly black as it is usually safer and I wanted it to match with the patterns of my tights as well here. These are the Trasparenze's Grammy Tights which are pretty much out of stock in most online hosiery retailers sadly. But I'm sure you could still find them off Amazon or perhaps even eBay. I really like this outfit and as described by UK Tights who reposted on Instagram "Great urban look of @legwearfash4men in Trasparenze tights!" In fact due to its success I'm actually looking into using more sheer patterned tights and I'm really looking forward to seeing it looks! 

What do you think?

Street Legwear Fashion : #Mayday 2015!

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

Welcome Street Legwear Fashion #May 2015! I have to apologise for missing out on March and April! Well I suppose we aren't always masters of our time! But alas as May the 1st was Labour Day, I had the time to do it and my girlfriend was there to help too! Sadly she wasn't able to find the Kisses pattern tights I got her the last time so this time it's just me!

This time we feature the Trasparenze Grammy tights!

I got these pair from UK Tights for my birthday actually, it was kind of like a wanting to try something new, something out of the usual, and actually most of the time I'd purchase opaque tights but hey another year older, why not something new? 

Well to start off, it's actually my first pair from Trasparenze too and a first sheer pair of patterned tights too and I wasn't disappointed with their quality! I decided go with a black T-shirt and a black pair of patterned shorts and really I tell you, the moment I left home and headed to the metro, it's like suddenly you become the centre of attention, I'm not too sure if the commuters were staring at my legs or my Tiger headed backpack but I noticed eyes were down at my legs and I just really wonder what goes on in their heads... perhaps tattoo!? cool tights!?

So anyways I was standing at the metro station of my destination waiting for my girlfriend and I took a little artistic reflection shot of my legs and Instagram'ed it and voila shortly my girlfriend came up behind me and said.. "Cool tights!!!"

Well at first my girlfriend who actually spotted me from behind she couldn't make out from far what I was wearing and maybe thought they were tattoos? And I guess that probably was maybe the many intrigued faces? 

And so we set off to photo location and grabbed some really cool shots along the path to Esplanade Theatres at the Bay!

Photos were shot by my girlfriend and edited by myself

I mean you could tell it from the photos here too, they don't look like tights at all! Well one reason actually to state is that these colour of these tights were matched very close to my skin colour that you almost couldn't see any difference until upclose! The funniest encounter we both had was as we were walking along the corridor of outside of a restaurant and we saw this guy seated in the restaurant with eyes wide open and lower jaw on the floor.. well not literally of course.. Hahaha! And we both had a laugh! What an encounter! 

Here's an upclose shot of my legs along with my girlfriend's legs with no hosiery on.

As you can see upclose, you could actually see the slight sheen on them, and what really amazed were that these patterns aren't printed on but were knitted reinforced patterns! Such awesomely well made! And really these tights though 15 denier and sheer but seem well made and are pretty robust too, made up of 93% Polyamide and 7% Elastane. It features reinforced brief that is opaque black knit the same way as the patterns as well, reinforced toes that go with the patterns too! And the seams flat.  I really like the fact that they featured a gusset as well for better durability and pretty worth the money! These tights come in 2 colours, Skin(Cosmetica) and Black colour(Nero) and I got one L sized and in Skin colour and it fit me pretty well at 1.75m tall and at 80ish kg.

And I believe at this juncture, you'd really love to get your hands one of them! But unfortunately since these tights are so awesome, they are pretty much out of stock at UK Tights and other online hosiery retailers even at Trasparenze online store(That's how popular it is!) But no worries! You could try Amazon which goes at US$18.56 a pair. 

Man I really don't mind having another pair, probably in black! In conclusion I really like these pair of tights and wearing these have broken another frontier for me as well and that means I'm looking for more patterned sheer tights too! 

I hope you enjoyed reading this!
