Weekly Vibe #169

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

Welcome to Weekly Vibe #169! Happy Easter to everyone! Our Lord Jesus has risen! Hallelujah!

Earlier today I decided to try something a little different, I slipped on a pair of one of the Kagawa black sheer pantyhose for my own training for some durability testing!

It held up pretty well... except for the butt portion, I was merciless with my footwork, a lot of wide steps and quick footwork. But hey they cost like US$1 a pair? Overall they were quite comfortable to wear and stretched well too! Oh well.. still got another pair of a different model to play with.. :P

Outfit of the Week #124

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

Welcome to Outfit of the Week #124! This week we are going golfing with Nike!

Source: Nike

This look is really catching on isn't it? Shorts and tights for men are getting popular! I really like how Nike put this outfit together, remember how in the earlier days men wore physical training T-shirt and just tights? Ughhh! But now we are seeing shorts and tights!

Check out what has to say in their video!

She totally hit the point when she said this look would really appeal to the younger crowd and indeed she hit the nail there! It's not hard to see young men sporting the shorts and tights look literally almost everywhere in the world nowadays! 

Good to see that this look is getting a lot of attention! Kudos to Nike and!

Weekly Vibe #168

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

Welcome to Weekly Vibe #168! Last week our saber class to first location which they first held the classes in a park early last year and it's my first time joining in a park as well.

We did something new this time, we did 3 versus 3, basically if you are hit twice in your saber hand you are out and your teammate will replace you, I was pretty glad that I was able to defeat last year's tournament champion in one of the duels, I'm hoping that up's the chance of me to possibly vie for the champion title - it's going to be a very painful journey... literally. I have got bruises on my hand, tummy and arm since engaging in this but I think it would be a great personal achievement to at least be one of the finalists but anyways this will have to wait till late this year. I'm very excited! 

Last Saturday as I was on my way home from work I was in my usual physical training attire with my Non-no water-resistant tights(there are support properties) as I was navigating through the greens I realised I accidentally kicked on a fallen branch which later also poked at my shin where my nylon clad legs were, I stopped for awhile fearing that it might have cause a tear or a ladder to my tights but surprising... nothing happened! I took a good look at my leg for awhile, brushed it a little... as if nothing happened! Amazing!! To be honest, most hosiery especially sheer ones and possible some opaque ones would have been torn. 

Easter is coming and happening this week, other than commemorating the work the Lord Jesus Christ, our friends at UK Tights is doing a special Easter promotion of 15% off all tights!

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

Outfit of the Week #123

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

Welcome to Outfit of the Week #123! And this week we will be looking at this outfit!

Photo source: Modalisboa

This outfit is part of Nuno Gama's Spring Summer 2016 collection and it isn't the first time he was featured here, we have featured his Autumn Winter collection of 2015 in our Outfit of the Week #116 and #92 Interesting of concept of having opaques in a Spring/Summer outfit when opaques are mostly worn in colder seasons like Autumn and Winter. I applaud the out-of-the-box approach but then again you might think.. wouldn't it be too warm to wear opaque? Well.. I bring you this!

None other than the Pretty Polly 50 Denier Cool Sense Tights where you can order it from UK Tights.

You get both the opaque look and not feel too warm while at it. 

Back to the outfit Nuno Gama put together, I like the reds he included in the shorts and shirt, the majority black shade gives an overall mature and masculine feel as well. This outfit is one I like! Thumbs up! What do you think?

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

I have picked it up from another fellow blogger Hosiery For Men and I thought I should share it too!

In the US based blog shared in a post and here is a small excerpt:

"No, you haven’t hopped in a time machine back to the Renaissance era, tights are really making a comeback in menswear! With the comfort and ease of tights, it’s really no surprise as to why it would be making this resurgence, but this is a new vintage renewal on the men’s fashion scene that we’re not sure anyone was really expecting to see for the year 2016. Beginning with runway shows in early 2015, tights are being seen as a replacement for dress socks under trousers and men’s dress pants from runways to walkways all across Europe and into the United States. There have even been menswear bespoke and custom tights indie brands popping up in hip regions particularly catering to this specific trend."

You can read the whole thing in their blog and check out their men's section!

Onward to hose!

Weekly Vibe #167

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

Welcome to Weekly Vibe #167! Sorry for the late post for last week as I had to work on my usual off day and I could only find time to post on separate days. Or should I say in a Russian proverb, "Руки не дохоят/My hands do not arrive." :X 

I have been in contact with a fellow Singaporean blogger Leo(the blogger that brought us Silky Leg Adventures) and we have been exchanging and sharing certain experiences and also challenging each other, somehow my last week's photo of me in sheer black pantyhose with rolled up pants kind of inspired him to try it and I'm so glad he did!

Wow rolled up leggings with pantyhose? That's worth exploring!

For the past week I have also been actively looking out for online Taiwanese shopping websites that allowed overseas shipping due to the fact that I have been in the trend of trying Asian hosiery brands now and I was glad I found something and I ordered 3 pairs!

Kagawa "Ice cold" sheer pantyhose in black

Kagawa "Fruit Acid" sheer pantyhose in black

Non-no Water resistant opaque tights in black

I really liked the latter because it really fits well and I believe most men can wear them, the plus size one fits up to 185cm height.. I'm pretty sure there are a very low percentage of Taiwanese girls of that height.. one might actually wonder that they might be appealing to the men actually.

(You do however have to know mandarin to be able to order, do let me know if you are interested so I can see what I can do to help)

Fans of Trasparenze Opaques do take note! Awesome deal from UK Tights for the Trasparenze Sophie 70 denier Opaque Tights.

Fans of Kunert hosiery are also in for a treat with 15% discount off Kunert products!

Feeling brave guys? Check out this discounted Pierre Mantoux Emilie Tights, it was originally going at 24.99GBP and it's now 18.99GBP sizes in stock include Small, Medium and Large.

Or you could also go for the Wolford Blair Tights, originally retailing at 32.99GBP and now 27.99GBP sizes in stock include Small, Medium and Large.

Last but not the least, I would like to wish everyone Happy St Patrick's Day!

Outfit of the Week #122

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

Welcome to Outfit of the Week #122! This week we will be looking at this!

A look by Llorenc. M in Lookbook

Awesome outfit lineup by Mr Llorenc.M! Nice combination with the grey sweater and shorts, brown ribbed opaques from Levante and probably leather shoes. I believe this is one look men of all ages can pull! To be honest I think someone should just give our friend here a proper camera.. I really like his outfits he has put up on Lookbook but his camera really doesn't do any justice at all. Anyways this outfit is just plain awesome!! What do you think?

Thanks for reading!

Weekly Vibe #166

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

Welcome to 166th edition of Weekly Vibe! This week has been quite an interesting one, on the side of my saber training, we relocated to the 100 Plus Promenade as our current location was under construction work but the relocation was rather short-lived as although it may be a public space, the security personnel decided otherwise claiming that our lightsabers are seen to be dangerous and could hurt joggers and other users....(when in fact the people on their electric scooters and segways are not considered to be hazardous... seriously?) but we did get to practice a little and took some nice photos though..

Our #SithSunday photo! As usual of course check out the legwear! :D

Today I took a dip to try a pair of the V. Vienna black sheers I got from Taiwan to go shopping around town and though as much as I thought I would expect weird looks I didn't really get any!!! Hahaha dang!

I will do a better full body picture I promise!

Now I'm going to be looking for nicer and better quality pairs of sheer pantyhose! Haha!

Are you thinking of trying out natural fibre hosiery? Our friends at UK Tights are having a special 20% off their Oroblu Natural Fibres series, to enjoy the 20% discount, just insert NATURAL as a code in your shopping cart.

Looking to another brand of opaques but not sure what to look out for? Check out UK Tights' Pretty Polly 60 denier 3D Opaque tights 2PP special promo, Buy one set(5.99GBP for a set of 2 pairs)  and get the next one at half the price and that's 4 pairs of tights at 8.99GBP and that's about 2GBP a pair! Great value and the reviews are great for these tights too!

Looking for Aristoc sheers? MyTights is have a 3 for 2 for their Aristoc Ultra Shine series. Prices ranging from US$8.90 to US$10.35 each.

Another awesome deal with Trasparenze's Gennifer Merino Wool Tights(US$17.80 a pair) at Buy 3 and the 4th pair free! 

Last but not the least one of my personal favourites Charnos 60 Denier Tights(US$6) a pair at a Buy 3 and get the 4th pair free!

That's all I have for you this week!

Outfit of the Week #121

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

Welcome to Outfit of the Week #121! This week we will travel to Japan for this look!

Photo source: MKT's WEAR JP's page

This seems to be a common look to be worn by young Japanese men, in fact if you searched with keywords on  like "Tights" and "Leggings" you actually yield hundreds of results!! His has a nice outfit, nice jacket there and shorts, good choice on those grey felt leggings, I'm pretty sure it's still pretty cold right now in Japan since this photo was up on January. The entire colour ensemble here is safe for men wanting to try out legwear as an accessory. 

What do you think?
