Weekly Vibe #165

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

Welcome to Weekly Vibe #165! The past week was one I really looked forward too because it was my birthday on Saturday! And I had such an awesome time with my family on a Friday Night birthday and a Saturday with my friends at a Karaoke club!

I'm feel so blessed to have such family and friends in my life! 

Earlier the same week, I met up with Wong who passed the sheer tights I got him to help me buy from Taiwan, collection complete!

I really wouldn't know these would fit! Fingers crossed! 

Fans of Charnos Satin 50 Tights are in for a treat! Because our friends at UK Tights is having a special promo of Buy one pair and the next pair at 1/2 the price!(7.99GBP a pair)

These have great reviews with majority ratings at 5 stars with most reviews stating that these produce a nice shine and not overly shiny.

UK Tights is having a special promotion on their Giula Nice Cotton 150 tights!

Review on this tights from one reviewer mentioned that though knitting didn't make these pair of tights feel soft on touch but will withstand quite a lot of abuse over time.

Fans of Trasparenze 100 denier Cortina Suspender Tights are also in a treat with a special price deal!

Reviews on these tights are largely great at 5 stars mostly revealed that these are well made and durable, most are very pleased with its practicality and aesthetics of these tights.

Looking for Sheers instead? MyTights have a special promo on their Levante Class 12 denier tights.

Reviews on these are quite mixed, positive reviews are that these sheer hose give a good shine and gives a look on the legs, negative reviews are that they are prone to laddering(I suggest picking a right size and put on some gloves when wearing them to remedy this issue)

People living in Singapore are really taking a beating from the high temperatures that average from 33 to 34 degrees celsius during the day and night temperatures are averaging at 27-28 degrees celsius, I still haven't stopped wearing tights however I would mostly wear them after work in the evening to get to gym/saber training or during the day, I'd make sure I was mostly in the air-conditioned comfort of a shopping mall.... gosh I wished I was back in the cold climate of Taiwan again haha!

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

Outfit of the Week #120

Hi Creative and Fashionable peeps!

Welcome to Outfit of the Week #120! This week we are looking at a sports celebrity from the US!

Image source Charlotte Observer

Image source Star Pulse
This was shared a few weeks back at the LAUF forum about the American Football player Cam Newton who just recently made the spot of being the most valuable NFL's Most Valuable Player, okay perhaps this outfit line up might not be the best, cut out pants, socks plus recovery stockings as he claimed them to be(perhaps might have been Activskin tights!) the sweaters, I'm seeing a lot of brands here however my biggest point here really isn't about his outfit it's more about him being not just a sports celebrity alone but using his influence to be a hero for some, he would give touchdown balls to children by the stands, visit young sick patients at the hospital and he probably the most fashionable MVP in NFL, check out some of his threads!

I truly feel that in order for hosiery style for men to succeed or become more mainstream is for more male celebrities to start wearing them as well(no not while doing a comical cross gender roles) because who knows? The children inspired by Newton here could very well wear what their idol wears for training and whatever he wears! You can read more about his recovery stockings stories Charlotte Observer and Star Pulse.

Weekly Vibe #164

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

Welcome to Weekly Vibe #164! Sorry for the delay of the post as I had to work for 8 days straight.. :X And I only managed to get my off day today.. and I had some tummy problems yesterday and hence got home earlier than usual from work but no worries I'm getting better already!

2 days ago I was pleasantly surprised to see that my V.Vienna sheer tights came!

I'm totally looking forward to trying them out! One of my friends who just returned from Taiwan will be passing me the remaining other pairs of V.Vienna pantyhose to me! I really can't wait!

Last Sunday I finally passed my grading to the next level for my sabering classes!

To be honest it was really tough, we had many strikes tested and a 3 rounds back to back dueling! 30 seconds x 3 each! I remember myself panting really hard after it but I'm glad that I have made it along with my friends and now we are the next level and considered a Senior now! Woohoo!

This Saturday also happens to be my birthday and along with my birthday I'm celebrating our grading victory and promotion at a Karaoke with my friends! I'm so looking forward to it!! Now which pair of tight should I wear...? Hahaha!

Recently this week I found another male Singaporean blogger by the name of "Leo" via Instagram who shares about his accounts through his blog of wearing pantyhose in public in shorts and to be honest his stories are just real daily challenges of a hose wearing man and...I'm sure most of the guys here would totally relate to him as I would as well. Check out his blog Silky Legs Adventures. He does have some photos up as well on his Instagram @LeoDumLao79 

This year happens to be a leap year as well and our friends at G.Lieberman & Sons. Ltd or ActivSkin is having a special leap year promotion check out the details below!

Meanwhile in the UK, Mothers' Day is drawing close! Our friends from UK Tights have up a special selection of items for the special woman in our lives! Check it out! Well for us who isn't celebrating Mothers' Day could still get something for our Mothers' too right? Hahaha!

UK Tights is also having a sale on two Trasparenze products:

Trasparenze Pianoforte Leggings (Usual price GBP39.99, now GBP 31.99) Sizes available: M and L Colours available: Black

Trasparenze Bandoneon Tights (Usual price GBP14.99, now GBP9.99) Sizes available: Small Colours available: Black

There are also two new products from Oroblu!

However I most likely recommend these last 3 styles for you to get them for your female friends or your partner.. Hahaha!

Well that's all I have for you this week!

Outfit of the Week #119

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

Welcome to Outfit of the Week #119! This week we will be looking at this unique outfit!

Shared via Men Wearing Tights Under Shorts

This outfit is featured by the Fashion label INKNI for an event in 2015. What really intrigued me the most isn't his clothing in general, YES.. It's the tights with holes around them! The shirt is really nice and the jacket seems kind okay I feel. The shorts are fine, the shoes are quite... meh I'd say... however I find the tights to be pretty interesting and I believe it should be able to work out well.

What do you think? Hole patterned tights... would you? I know I might.

Thanks for reading!

Weekly Vibe #163

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

Welcome to Weekly Vibe #163! I hope you had a great Lunar New Year celebration and an awesome Valentine's Day!

For those 2 events I had a great time! Check out my outfit(well my lower body) of what I wore for Lunar New Year house visiting!

Remember the LED shoes? Check it out! Those leggings are actually part of the pair of shorts I bought from H&M like 2 in 1 shorts plus leggings together. As cool as they are, I still think they belong for wear in a colder environment as they do feel really quite warm, the built in leggings were pretty thick. Oh and I also brought along my lightsabers for my nieces and nephews to play with!

Seeing the glow in their eyes(not from the lightsaber) just makes it really special at least for me, the love of Star Wars that started decades ago is still growing even for the younger ones!

My Valentine's Day was very nice too! I did managed to get my date with a friend from Malaysia and we went to the S.E.A Aquarium at Resorts World Sentosa, it was really nice of her to travel 2 hours on a bus to Singapore from Johor for the meet up and I totally enjoyed it and she did too!

Oh and remember on my earlier comment why the 2 in 1 shorts and leggings were pretty just too darn warm to wear out? Well I wore it out on Valentine's Day and whilst being outdoor, I was melting away.. well I got the black shirt which also contributed to it.. I guess I gotta keep that combination for colder countries.. :X

Fans of Hudson hosiery are in for a treat as UK Tights is having a special promotion of buy one get the next pair at half the price!

Trasparenze fans like me would be very glad to know that they have just released a new Spring 2016 collection!

They are now stocked with UK Tights and you can start ordering! :)

What intrigued me most was the Trasparenze Singapore Sling tights... odd that it's named after my country... or rather a very sophisticated cocktail called the Singapore Sling Hahaha


2 Products are also going on sale with UK Tights namely:

Trasparenze Gong Tights now going at GBP11.99 was GBP16.99

Cecilia de Rafael Sensacion Tights now going at GBP14.99 was GBP17.99 

Here is a picture of our friend Junius CdR's digital male ambassador in the Sensacion Tights.

That's all I have for you this week! Have a blessed week ahead!

Outfit of the Week #118

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

Welcome to Outfit of the Week #118! And this week we will be looking at the outfit! 

Source: MIP Taobao catalogue

Although I am not totally sure where this picture truly came from, I think this outfit is pretty "cute" well like geeky cute like how some girls would put it, dark coloured patterned bow, checkered red shirt, brown shorts with striped suspenders, white loafers and brown opaque tights. My overall opinion on this combination is okay, Personally I would have gone, black or dark coloured shirt, white/black shorts, black tights, white coloured suspenders. Regardless I think it's great that our model here is wearing tights!

What do you think?

Weekly Vibe #162

Hi Creative and Fashionable people,

Welcome to the 162nd edition of Weekly Vibe! Enter February 2016 already!! It's exactly one more week to Lunar New Year and I'm so looking forward to it! Earlier today on a Monday I was out doing some Lunar New Year clothing shopping, it's a Chinese custom to shop for new clothes on a New Year and I got myself some new threads from H&M! :)

Oh right we took this really cool photo on the previous Sunday!

I'm in the middle in my saber combat gear! Face mesh, lightsaber, shirt, shorts and black tights! Tadaa....Hahaha!

Oh and since it's Lunar New Year, I tried ordering something new for a change, sheer black tights from Taiwan!

V. Vienna Perfect Seamless

And V. Vienna Strength & Elastic

Below are video demos of the products, check them out!

To be honest what attracted me were the functions they look almost virtually indestructible! Coupled that I'm also wanting to try out Asian hosiery brands as well. In fact I'm actually starting to notice the difference in culture when it comes to hosiery made from Asian nations versus European, US and Eastern ones. I will be forming up my opinion on hosiery manufacturer culture when I do get to try Eastern brands like Giulia. 

I will be posting up order links when I do get my orders delivered in coming review posts.

Feeling the cold from the El Nino phenomenon? Our friends at UK Tights are having a great buy one and get the next pair at half price promotion for their Pretty Polly Fleecy Opaques.

The promotion applies to all of PP Fleecy Opaque Tights, Footless Tights and Knee High socks.

UK Tights also started selling 2 new products! 

Outfit of the Week #117

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

Today we will be featuring this outfit!

Most of people of the Chinese world know him as a famous Taiwanese celebrity known as Show Luo or Luo Zixiang and it's always nice to have a famous celebrity to endorse the men's legwear fashion trend.. because if that's any way to get guys to wear them tights it's to get the celebrities to wear them too and we need more celebrities to do it! Anyways down to what he is wearing, Nice colour combination on his upper body; off white jacket with nice pattern inners and collar, black and white patterned tops, grey shorts, red sidelined tights and his really cool silver high cut sneakers! I totally dig those jacket he has got on and of course the shoes!! 

What do you think?
