Weekly Vibe #150

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

Welcome to Weekly Vibe #150! On Tuesday we sent off my brother and his family off at the airport and I'm really starting to miss them already but I was really glad that I was able to photograph my new niece and her older sister at the studio and here are some photos I want to share!

This was her older sister when she was younger!
I managed to have a photo with my nieces before they left too! 

I really miss them!

On Sunday me and another mate started practising on the Saber Staff (double bladed Lightsaber) and it was really exciting when we did our duels!

I was sporting the Charnos 60 denier tights which UK Tights sent to me a few months back. I really the look actually, black top from the academy, black shorts and black opaque tights it really completes the Sith look! Hahaha! Incidentally UK Tights is having a promotion for these really awesome tights!

Buy one and the next pair at half the price! These tights are already costing at 5.99GBP a pair and with the promotion, it's really a good price for a really great pair of opaque tights! These also come in 16 other colours too! I have written a review on these as well.

UK Tights is also doing a special giveaway with their Wolford products!

Spend 50GBP on their Wolford line of products and receive a free hosiery wash bag! Some of you might wonder.. hosiery wash bag? Is it necessary? Yes if you don't intend to hand wash your hosiery and decide to pop your hosiery into the washing machine... which might cause really unwanted snags and runs if it catches on to other clothing items in the washing machine and seriously no one would like to spend so much on good pair of hosiery from Wolford only to ruin them in the wash so this is a great investment!

That's all I have for you this week! Also don't forget that Halloween is this week too!

Outfit of the Week #106

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

Welcome to Outfit of the Week #106 This week we are looking at this outfit!

Photos from Pman's Flickr page

This is a good simple outfit, to me I feel it's kinda bold as you'd definitely gonna be getting eyes locked on your legs.. but really people like us.. who cares? Good colour white T-shirt, grey shorts, grey semi opaque tights and sneakers. I feel it's always safe to have same colour bottoms with tights.

I really recommend doing this outfit after you have already gained more confidence wearing tights out with shorts of a longer length(covering the knee caps). Why do I mention about kneecaps? Well it's quite simple especially when you sit or squat or bend your knees the fabric would start stretching and it would get less opaque(depending on denier) and you get that somewhat sheer hosiery look which might sometimes worry some men who just started wearing tights with shorts and fear about additional comments from people(which I totally share that sentiment in my earlier days).

Regardless, what do you think?

Weekly Vibe #149

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

Welcome to the 149th edition of Weekly Vibe! Just in case you didn't know Friday was National Stockings Day in the UK! 

Here are some photos from the Charnos Girls who did Charnos Stockings Day!

We the men should have our International Tights Day too! Or International Hose Day.. or whatever haha! But any day is a hosiery day for us but I think it would be nice to feature the guys too!

Let me know what you think in your comments below on hosiery day for the men!

My brother and family flew back for 2 weeks to visit and to attend my cousin's wedding and wow it's been 2 years! And I got myself a new niece!!! She is really adorable! And I finally got the chance to carry her and I brought them down for a photography session at my studio on Sunday! 

She is soooo cute!!! 

I will posting up some of her photos from the studio shoot in the next Weekly Vibe post! Sadly my brother and his family will be flying back on a Tuesday(Tomorrow) 

UK Tights have started selling new Pretty Polly Autumn line of hosiery!

I'd recommend this for the ladies(due to size and style reasons)

But something really cool Pretty Polly got lined up are their special Sweet Steps series:

Anybody who has worn any form hosiery would know the struggle of foot odour after hours to walking around in them with shoes especially when it's really humid but looks like Pretty Polly has a solution to that! Kudos to them! If you are like at their tights, it is sized up to XL totally suitable for men!

Last but not the least Pretty Polly has got their new 3D Opaque series of tights!

All of these are sizes up to XL which is good for us men! I'd say yes to smoother appearance, softer touch and longer lasting finish any day! Best part about it is Pretty Polly hosiery are really affordable and have good quality as well! 

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

Outfit of the Week #105

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

Welcome to Outfit of the Week #105! And this week we will be looking at this outfit!

Photo shared by Escurridizo69 on Flickr.

This is a really cool outfit however I really have no idea which fashion designer did this piece and this isn't the only outfit paired with black opaque tights and I thought that black opaque tights were out of fashion for men but nope it seems like it is here to stay!(I hope!) The model spots a very cute smiley on his T-shirt and a very interesting styled grey blazer with what it seems like leather fittings in the hands area and the shoulders. Interesting combo with the black shorts and black opaques with maroon coloured leather sneakers. This outfit doesn't require too much of an extra cash to buy from flashy fashion labels. Actually looking at some of the other photos, I felt that pairing up leather shorts (as shown in the bottom photo) with this outfit would look pretty good too!

I should get myself a proper fitting blazer!

What do you think?

Street Legwear Fashion VIII

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

Welcome to Street Legwear Fashion VIII! With the haze in Singapore dissipating and feeling better physically(still not feeling my best) I managed to do a Street Legwear Fashion post!

And in this edition we will be looking at the Tiffany Quinn Sheer Front Stripe Tights!

These were very kindly sent to by UK Tights in fact they sent me another pair for the blog anniversary! I had my eyes on these when they were first shown on UK Tights' site, I had been wearing mostly opaques and wanted to push the envelope to wear sheers with shorts but also not in stealth mode, on deliberate "show off" mode. I wanted to show guys that "Hey if you are brave enough you can wear these too!"

I really like the way Tiffany Quinn packages their hosiery and I really like the tagline "Dare to Wear" on their package. Hell yeah! I dare to wear! 

However since there was still the haze, I decided to pair my outfit with a cool looking Respro Sportsta respirator and voila I looked like a ninja or a Sith... with sheer patterned tights! Hahaha!

Man I really liked this look! I was wearing a T-shirt with Japanese Yakuza patterns and a pair of spacey patterned shorts and mid-cut sneakers.

I was given a pair in M/L, these tights fit me well(my height is 1.75m and weigh 88kg). Some things I noticed about them are that you can wear them both ways as the seams are just patterned on one side which means you could wear them front or back facing. The stripe patterns I realised are not printed but woven in which is really cool like having different deniers with every stripe pattern which also helps for hosiery durability too and not get any colour fading if they were printed.

Closeup on legs
These tights feature a reinforced top and reinforced toes but do not feature a gusset(which I personally still prefer having) they are 15 denier(on the sheer areas) made of 95% Polyamide and 5% Elastane. They overall feel fine, you might feel a little bit of the itch at first caused from the patterns but eventually it wouldn't bother you as you have them on long enough, I also would recommend using a little fabric softener to make it less irritating to the skin. Costing at GBP 6.99 a pair and they comes in 2 sizes S/M and M/L these Tiffany Quinn tights are really awesome as they really do cause that "turn head" or "eyes to the legs" effect on people. If you are really looking for something rad and new to try, these do make a good candidate! 

I hope you guys do try them!

Weekly Vibe #148

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

Welcome to Weekly Vibe #148! Alas the haze is gradually dissipating but still there! I managed to do some upcoming Street Legwear Fashion post photos! I was so looking forward to do them after so long!(And really long overdue!)

With October being here that also means Halloween is coming and as we all know hosiery is going to be so widely used as an accessory in various costumes! I could think up of so many! 

And here are some cool ones I found over the internet!


Dang! Looks really real!
Well sadly I'm not really a Halloween person however I still do like to dress up in different costumes! 

And talking about Halloween, UK Tights has a really awesome collection of Halloween hosiery!

For our fans of Sheer hosiery do note that UK Tights is also having a promotion on their Pretty Polly Nylons 10 Denier series!

The one pair of Halloween hosiery I found really cool was this from Leg Avenue!

But.. hahaha it's so cool that I know I can't wear it because I know I probably won't be able to fit in them!

If you are a fan of House of Holland fashion tights you will be very glad to know that MyTights have started selling their new line of fashion tights!

What would you dress as for this year's Halloween? Share with us!

Outfit of the Week #104

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

Welcome to Outfit of the Week #104! This week we are featuring something really cool!

Style by Ximon Lee done for H&M.

I'm pretty sure we have all seen pleated skirts and shorts for women but now pleated shorts for men too! Interesting footwear, looking like the kind you leave the shower. I like the exaggerated huge collar, shirt pocket(maybe?) and the cuffs on the sleeves. Actually I noticed if you looked at the outfit from afar you'd probably think our friend looks like he is wearing a pleated skirt until probably if you saw him walk or he'd walk closer to you, either way I think this is cool, I'd totally dig his outfit man!

What do you think?

G.Lieberman & Sons(ActivSkin) announcement

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

This week G.Lieberman & Sons and Activskin announced today some news and I thought you should read it from what they wrote on LAUF Forum

Looks pretty bad from what Steve is saying though yes indeed we are getting a 20% discount however it shows us the harsh reality that "Women just aren't wearing hosiery anymore."(maybe in the US?) really affects the business of hosiery manufacturers but I'm pretty sure with the coming autumn and winter both men and women will be shopping for hosiery again! I'm pretty sure this one setback will make Steve stronger as the company transitions with a new supplier! Let's help him to clear his inventory! 

Thanks for support in advance!

Weekly Vibe #147

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

Welcome to Weekly Vibe #147! Sorry for the delay, I was away and my computer had some issues and probably still do have issues(GFX card problems)

The haze is still bad but I got myself a really nice looking respirator from Respro!

Someone was telling me I could cosplay as the Winter Soldier... Hahahaha!

Autumn is here and one of my favourite hosiery brands Wolford has released their long awaited Autumn/Winter series of tights and you can get them from UK Tights!

So far what caught my eyes were the Abigail and Laisa tights!

UK Tights have started stocking up new autumn collections from Jonathan Aston, Aristoc and Levante!

For the coming week I'm planning to do a special feature with one of our readers soon! Hopefully the haze stops soon!

That's all I have for you this week!

May the haze leave us soon!

Outfit of the Week #103

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

Welcome to Outfit of the Week #103! And this week we are featuring the outfits of one of our readers, David!

Here our friend David is out for a sporty day! Nice colour combination, nice blues there! Blue top, blue shoes and black capri length pants! And guess what? Nude coloured sheer tights! COOL! To the untrained eye one wouldn't sport the hose at all because they seem really invisible! It also made his legs look totally flawless! Nice legs bro! :)

I'd totally do this outfit when I got a body like his! 

What do you think?
