In Focus: Charnos 60 Denier Opaque Tights

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

It's been some time since I did a review on the hosiery and after taking a few days leave from work for the this festive season, I'm finally able to do a review! For past few weeks I have received 3 pairs of Charnos 60 Denier 60 denier Opaque Tights sized XL with 3 different colours, Navy, Chocolate and Bottle Green. You may wonder why did I order so many pairs.. well firstly it is one of the "cheaper" ones and sized much more generously and under the "Men" section of Tightsplease(where I got them from).

 


As soon as I received them I realised that they were packed like the cotton socks I buy at a departmental store, and one of the trademarks of good hosiery is that they smell good in their package and boy did they smell good! One of the things I realised are that when they are being unwrapped, and when the "legs" dropped down... they don't seem very long and I thought it wouldn't be a good sign.. but when I slide them on.. the first thing I felt wasn't whether it fitted me well or not but the glide up my legs were so smooth! The sensation of putting them on was great! It was pretty much the first time I have worn hose that felt like that! And thank God that the they weren't that short and it could go up way up my navel! The opacity coverage was pretty even, the stretch begins at the heel and the kneecap area but the stretch would mostly on appear when you're sitting down, opacity is pretty uniformed when you're standing or walking. There is a matte finish to these tights with 3D Lycra that makes the fit perfect and comfortable Here are some styles I have came up with my own wardrobe! 


Shirt: ARNOLD PALMER JEANS  Shorts: THOMAS SMITH  Shoes: NORTH STAR  Glasses: H&M  Legwear: CHARNOS Model & Photographer:  A. LUCIUS. KUNSTWERKE FABRIK


Shirt: UNIQLO  Pants: UNIQLO  Shoes: TOPMAN  Hat: BHG Glasses: H&M  Legwear: CHARNOS Model & Photographer:  A. LUCIUS. KUNSTWERKE FABRIK


Shirt: NEWLOOK  Shorts: UNIQLO  Shoes: NORTH STAR  Shades: H&M  Legwear: CHARNOS Model & Photographer:  A. LUCIUS. KUNSTWERKE FABRIK

Price: GBP 4.20 (Usually 6.00 because of a Ultimate Christmas Sale at Tightsplease)

Material content: 89% Nylon 10% Lycra & 1% Cotton

Sizes offered: S to XL

Colours: Black, Aubergine, Grey, Berry, Navy, Chocolate, Bottle Green(Tightsplease offering) Red, Forest Green, Purple, Petrol, Fuchsia & Teal

Pros: Smooth, Easy to wear, Comfortable, Not too hot to wear in a warm climate but also good for wear in a cold climate, Very generous in size, Economical, Many colours to choose from & Flat seamed

Cons: Fabric can easily get caught by various elements(Make sure you wear gloves when putting them on.) & Waistband has tendency to drop when you wear them throughout the day.


http://www.tightsplease.co.uk/brands/charnos/60-denier-opaque-tights/

Overall I am very pleased with the Charnos 60 Denier Opaque Tights, I give it a rating out 4.5 out of 5 stars. I would most likely buy them again when I run out of them!

They also make a great replacement for work socks under long pants. However I only recommend that for the colder days.

Weekly Vibe #8

Hi Creative and Fashionable People!

I hope you guys had a wonderful week before Christmas! I know I had! Monday I brought in my family to my studio for a photo shoot! Actually the main focus was on my 2 year old niece! Here are some really cute shots!





That's me and my niece, Olivia :)
And also on Wednesday, I met up with all my church photographers for a appreciate dinner party, had a great time fellowshiping and photo taking!

                             

And on Friday I celebrated my mum's birthday! Saturday I went to church for Christmas services and then Sunday today we had Christmas Party with my clan mates from World of Tanks! We were joined by other local Tank Commanders and Wargaming Staff.




Nothing much hosiery related so far other than I getting complimented on having a nice pair of tights whilst I was in church serving on Saturday evening. Hahaha! And of course receiving the OroBLU and Charnos Opaques on Saturday as well. :)

Thanks for reading!

Just Arrived: OroBLU Omnia and Charnos 60 Den Opaques

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

I ordered 2 pairs of tights; OroBLU Omnia and Charnos 60 Denier Opaque tights (Bottle green colour) from Tightsplease and they have arrived! This time the shipping time was a lot faster, it came after about 2 weeks.



When I opened OroBLU Omnia tights, they looked really long! And that is indeed a good start! To be honest I am really still thinking of how would I wear my clothes with these tights... but I'm sure there would be a tasteful way to wear them! I will figure them out eventually! I will still do my reviews on the Charnos 60 den tights first before going on to the OroBLU ones. Last night I actually helped mum to order 2 more pairs of Activskin's A839, she is actually requested me to get more of them because there weren't enough for her to wear them! Wow!

Weekly Vibe #7

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

This week was full of ups and downs for me, downs were mostly work related. At least I had a great weekend! This weekend we had a Special Christmas candlelight service at church and wow! What a magnificient sight! The whole hall was only illuminated with candles! Not much of a religious thing but a beautiful tradition my church has. Shortly after the service, me and the youth in my church zone went for a night cycling trip! I had my compression footless tights on! It didn't catch up on a lot of attention, but the doctor who was assigned to be our medical coordinator was pretty interested in what I was wearing, and so I shared a little bit on it and directed him to ActivSkin. We were on our bikes for about 7 hours with short breaks and games. I had a sore bottom after the whole cycling event. We started off at about 11pm and ended at about 7:30am. I took a cab home, took a shower and slept at 8:30am and woke up again at 3:30pm. I haven't been so exhausted for so long!

Night Cycling and Games with Youths! (I'm in light blue)

New Tights Order : December 2012

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

As you all might know from my previous post, Tightsplease is on a flash sale of up to 30-60% off their products for just a day and it started today! I took the liberty of ordering 2 pairs of tights, one of them a repeated order of Charnos 60 Denier Opaque tights in bottle green colour and OroBLU  Omnia patterned tights in Wool white pattern all are sized XL.





The Charnos 60 Denier Opaque Tights were 3.30GBP each after a 45% discount.





The OroBLU Omnia tights were 9.09GBP each after 30% discount.

At total I spent 20.39GBP, with 8.00GBP for shipping internationally. That would add up to be about 40 Singapore dollars. I feel that it is priced pretty fine for me. I suppose I will have to wait till January to get my hands on them! Hahaha!

Weekly Vibe #6

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

This week was pretty exciting! Me and my clan that plays World of Tanks S.E.A Server was invited to a Game's convention Licence2Play! We had so much fun and so much freebies! I wore a World of Tanks shirt, dark blue cargo shorts and camo tights from Activskin along with a Post WWII Soviet era tank helmet! I took photos with the awesome uniformed women beautifully arranged by Wargaming.net! 

Me with a Russian "tank commander" at Licence2Play

Weekly Vibe #5

This week felt a little exhausting for me at work in the studio because I had to do more studio shoots, however what lightened me up the least was receiving the 2 pairs of Charnos 60 den Opaque tights! I tried the Chocolate coloured one and wow! The fit was awesome and it was so comfortable and smooth! Anyways as I was reading a post LAUF (Legwear as Unisex Fashion) titled "You Are Not So Smart" the topic was actually adapted from a book of the same name by David McRaney which dispels a number of myth on what people really think of you and it really helps men who are just starting to decide having legwear as part of their fashion inventory.


Here is a small excerpt from the post which you can read it all here

Chapter 29 (page 162)

The Spotlight Effect


You spill a drink at a party. You get a mustard stain on your shirt. Your forehead is breaking out on the day you have to do a presentation. Oh no. What will people think? Chances are, they won't think anything. Most people won't notice at all, and if they do, they'll probably disregard and forget your imperfections and faux pas within seconds.


You lose some weight, buy a new pair of pants, and strut through doors expecting some sort of acknowledgment. Perhaps you get a new haircut, or buy a new watch. You spend an extra fifteen minutes in front of the mirror expecting the world to notice. You spend so much time thinking about your own body, your own thoughts and behaviors, you begin to think other people must be noticing too. The research says they aren't, at least not nearly as much as you are.

When in a group or public setting, you think every little nuance of your behavior is under scrutiny by everyone else. The effect is even worse if you must stand on a stage or go out with someone for the first time. You can't help but be the center of your universe, and you find it difficult to gauge just how much other people are paying attention since you are paying attention to you all the time. When you start to imagine yourself in the audience, you believe every little misstep is amplified. You are not so smart when it comes to dealing with crowds because you are too egocentric, and they are just as convinced that they are being scrutinized.
 



Wow! What a revelation! What David says is really true! If only more men were more conscious about this! Anyways do look out for my coming reviews on the Charnos 60 denier Opaque tights! Have an awesome December!
