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?

Thanks for reading!

Weekly Vibe #161

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

Welcome to Weekly Vibe #161! I am so looking forward to Lunar New Year! And counting down just 2 more weeks to go!

On Sunday I had an awesome photoshooting out with my friends and we grabbed some really nice shots and well needless to say I'm always out with tights on Sunday!

What makes this entire blocks of apartments are that it's going to be demolished this year and in its place will be a whole new expressway, I really miss the way things were built in the old days. I think it's really a small country state issue isn't it? The lack of size to contain certain heritage styles of construction for the sake development, though yes I'd wholeheartedly agree that development is important and important for progress and that is why we can see how Singapore is one of the top few countries when it comes to development in the world. 

We did really cool shots and I hope to share some more when my friends post up the photos!

It's the time of the year again.. Valentine's Day! Though I maybe kinda lonely this year.. or maybe not? Looking forward to going out with someone who knows about this blog and gives really positive feedback and encouragement to me!

Outfit of the Week #116

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

Welcome to Outfit of the Week #116 and this week we will be featuring this outfit!

Collection by Nuno Gama 2015

Awesome outfit combination by Nuno Gama! I really like Nuno Gama's tops and outerwear, I like the somewhat classic Roman Catholic style of prints and patterns he has, really nice simple looking outfit here, white patterned long sleeved top, black shorts and black opaques with wine red colour sneakers, I like the white shoe laces that really bring out a contrast along the legs region. I think this is a great look some of the more mature males can do! What do you think?

Thanks for reading!

Special Outfit of the Week feature: Mitch #January 2016

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

Welcome to a Special Outfit of the Week post! Many of you might have read about me talking about a special representative for Legwear Fashion For Men and today we finally got the feature and this time we feature a possible long term partner, Mitch on the plate!

We are also looking at reviewing the special Non-No Water/Wind Resistant 80 Denier Opaque Tights from Taiwan.

Both Mitch and I have worn and will be giving our opinions on these tights.

It is actually the very first pair of tights Mitch owns and to be honest I feel these are really a great pair of tights. According to him these tights feels soft and silky, great plus points are that they are comfortable and warm coupled with the pros that it's water and wind resistant which makes it great for colder climates. However he finds them a little warm for a warm climate like Singapore, asking him if he would wear them often, he said yes and if it would recommend the readers.. yes he would! In conclusion he rated them 4 out of 5 stars.

Water Resistant properties

Model: Mitch. K, Photographer: A. Lucius

Now from my personal take on these tights, these tights also feature some support on the knee area, great features I felt are that they really really stretch well and totally no problems fitting me, I also like the fact that though these tights are pretty cheap they also feature a nice gusset comparable to that you see in Charnos 60 denier opaque tights, the water resistant fibres are a German engineered feature by Bionic Finish. The opaque coverage is awesome and very uniform as you can see from Mitch's legs, as described on the cover, it is 80 denier with 110 denier kind of coverage on the legs.

They really stretchhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!

Not much is written about fabric composition on these tights, however it is clear that spandex is most likely present in these tights, cons for these tights I would say are that so far I am only able procure them from Taiwan by being there and possibly asking a friend who is visiting there to get me a pair.. however I did source that Taobao was selling them in 6 pairs at 265 RMB which is about US$40 which is pretty expensive and that still excludes shipping overseas and I actually bought this from a lifestyle store in Taiwan for about USD$4 a pair, can you imagine USD$4 for such great quality tights? It's insane!

These tights come in 3 colours, black, dark grey and navy blue and come in 2 sizes Normal (Fits up to waist 85cm - 110cm, height 150cm - 180cm) and M-LL (Fits up to waist 90cm -115cm, height 155cm - 185cm)

In conclusion, I would say.. go buy an air ticket to Taiwan take an nice tour to Taiwan(it's really a very beautiful country with very nice food, polite people and nice pretty women you see in tights 90% of the time)and if you are a fan of black opaque tights like me, get a pair and try them and if you like them, get dozens of them and while you're at it get me some as well!

P.S Thanks Mitch!
