Weekly Vibe #60

Hi Creative & Fashionable people!

Welcome to the 60th edition of Weekly Vibe! Firstly I would like to wish all of you Merry Christmas! And most of this week for me was spent celebrating Christmas with my family and friends! In the midst of which I wore my tights happily under my shorts, I did have some comments and questions but had no problem clearing doubts or had anything uncomfortable said too! It's really nothing new for my family and friends now to see me wearing something nylon on my legs. 

My niece Olivia with a very big Christmas tree!

I was really glad I didn't have to work for a week as I could spend more time catching up with friends I haven't hung out with for a long time! I had so much fun shopping and eating! 


Well this time lets have a reply from you readers! 

How was your Christmas? And were there any interesting stories?(related or not related to hosiery)

That's all I have for you and time to hear from you!

Thanks for reading!

Weekly Vibe #59

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

Welcome to the 59th Weekly Vibe! This week was pretty long for me as I also had to work half day noon to evening and hence it took me later to get blogging this week! 


As this week draws to a close we can hear the ringing of Christmas bells drawing closer! Today on a Sunday I was at Church with our special Christmas services with a lovely drama lined up! There is really nothing like celebrating Christmas the birthday of our Lord Jesus Christ at His house!


I'm really glad to know that UK Tights, has started selling Wolfords! 


Check it out here!

I'm quite interested in some of the products! Here are some I'm looking at!

Wolford Satin Opaque 50

Wolford Fatal 50 Seamless

If someone could be so kind to buy them for me... Hehehe! *Hint Hint* Lol!

Anyways have a great coming week ahead!

Outfit of the Week #14

Hi Creative and Fashionable people! 

This week's Outfit of the Week is this!


I found this image from lookbook! From Jorge's Lookbook account.

I really like this look, this guy is really bold with his threads and it really reminds me of how dress out actually! I really like the black overall look he wore because that would be like how I would wear out. The most contrasting I feel are really his shoes which really stands out and I'm pretty it would draw people to his nylon encased legs which are FALKE tights, they look semi-opaque and personally I wouldn't really dare wear a pair of semi opaques yet(Hahaha! Maybe someday?) What do you guys think?

Thanks for reading!

Weekly Vibe #58

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

Welcome to the 58th edition of Weekly Vibe! This week came with many pre-christmas celebrations as well. I was invited to Wargaming's Christmas party on Saturday me and my clan members had a lot of fun! 



Not just the fun but Wargaming gave us some gifts too!



However the highlight had to be being in Church as we did our annual Special Candlelight Services!


It was really lovely as the whole entire hall was lit up by only candles held by members and their friends too! I took a panorama too which was stitched with 7 photos. 


Now for the Christmas deals with our hosiery retailers! 


StockingsHQ has various great deals apart from the above discount code, they are also giving UK orders first class upgrade shipping at no extra charge right through December the 23rd!



I'm going to start my Christmas shopping on the 23rd of December!! Can't wait!! I hope you guys got it in order already since I'm doing it so late! Hahaha! That's all I have for you this week!

Have a great coming week ahead!
Thanks for reading!

Outfit of the Week #13

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

This week's 13th OOTW is unique as it features a friend Otto from UFASH


















I have been admiring this outfit for quite awhile and I believe it deserves to be featured here! If you're a consumer of ADRIAN hosiery products, you would instantly recognise the ADRIAN Grating tights Otto has on, I really like the black sweater he has on and along with his black hat, the shorts give a rugged look with the boots complimenting with the rugged look. Overall the outfit gives a feeling of going out on a golf tour but not on any golf tour but the sort with the great outdoors. Really nice outfit altogether! My compliments to Otto!

Thanks for reading!

Weekly Vibe #57

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

Welcome to the 57th edition of Weekly Vibe! Time really flies and now we are already in the month of December!! The Christmas bells are already ringing and the weather is getting colder but we are still happy with our tights on keeping our legs warm! 




This week I received a pleasant email from Steve of Activskin requesting me to use the photos I had from my latest Vertical Marathon experience and in exchange of that he offered me something great!(Well even if he didn't offer me anything I would still gladly allow Activskin to use my photos!) but it's always nice to ask first. :) 

Oh yes I actually found out that the time I took to climb up Swissotel's 73 stories was 15 mins 03 secs, well it isn't really that fast as I found out that there were senior citizens who climbed faster and with a timing of 10 mins for the fastest elderly climber! I'm so amazed! I'm going to try for a faster time next year! 

Now to hosiery news!


















Tightsplease is having a 45% off their plus size tights and Tightsplease knows that we men make up most of the sales for their plus size styles and they are helping us! Time to stock up here!

There has been a flu bug going around here where I live, do drink more water, keep warm with tights and exercise more! 

Well that's all I have you all for this week! Have a great coming week and an awesome December!

Thanks for reading!

Outfit of the Week #12

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

Welcome to the 12th OOTW! This week we got this!






















This image was found in www.aliexpress.com

First impression I had of the model was..."Whoa!! A 21st century Robin hood without his bow and arrow!" Well not because he was wearing tights like in the film "Robin Hood Men in Tights" It was mostly because of the green he was wearing; his hate and shirt. I'm apparently not that skinny as he is but I think this outfit takes a lot of guts to wear, I mean okay black tights are fine to wear... but grey is something a little different altogether and looking how short those shorts are this outfit is not for the new and uninitiated gentleman. This is one outfit I would recommend for veterans who doesn't really give a heck about what other people think. I think the shoes were fine but I think high cuts would be nicer though. What do you think?

Thanks for reading!

Weekly Vibe #56

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

Welcome to the 56th edition of Weekly Vibe! Firstly I would want to apologise for not posting this on Sunday as I was occupied most of the day and had to attend a wedding too on the same day, so I had to postpone the post to Monday, sorry about that! Anyways lets get on with it!


Firstly I want to thank all of you readers and friends for your support on the comments for the 55th Weekly Vibe on conquering the Swissotel Vertical Marathon and big thanks to Activskin on promoting the 55th Weekly Vibe on their homepage too! I'm truly grateful about that!

I believe most of you have done some decent Black Friday shopping and had a great thanksgiving! Well unfortunately we don't really have that tradition in Singapore and most hosiery retailers have got their Black Friday offers over.. but now Monday for online shopping is the hype now! UKTights and Tightsplease have both Cyber Monday offers! Check them out!

Sunday was also a special day for my friends, who got tied the knot yesterday! I was really glad to be part of it! I wish them a blissful and blessed marriage!



That's all I have for you! Have a great week!

Thanks for reading!

Outfit of the Week #11

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

This week's Outfit of the Week is this! 





This is a look put up together by Fashion Designer Antonio Azzuolo, my first impression of the outfit was it gave me a visually refreshing and cool feeling towards it. It was refreshing because of his sky blue coloured outerwear and white turtleneck top along with his mirror reflective shades. What I really caught my attention wear his gloves, these were the fingerless gloves that you see worn by tactical ops personnel and sometimes race car drivers, well he may not be getting away anywhere soon, but hey it kinda works here I think.. his high cut sneakers kind of blends into his legs but doesn't really do so because of the very obvious opaque black tights. I find some interest in the capri length pants he got on, nice desert brown colour going on there! You guys could try it out this weekend and look refreshing to the people around you!

Weekly Vibe #55

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

Welcome to the 55th edition of LFFM's Weekly Vibe! The biggest highlight this week has to be the the Swissotel Vertical Marathon I did on Sunday! 



It is 73 floors high with 1,334 steps leading up to the top! 

I found out about it from a fellow vertical marathoner when I finished my 2nd vertical marathon and to hear it about its number of floors really scared me at first... a whooping 73 floors! Well for the previous 2 vertical marathons I have done were all just 40 stories high(probably 40 is a little too much for you) When I saw that the registrations were up I was pretty hesitant because I didn't know if I could do 73 stories! But anyways I took the step of faith to go for it.

During the week I caught a flu bug that affected me throughout the week and needless to say it affected me on race day too as I was still coughing but everything else was fine already and I kept having dreams of climbing up that hotel building twice! Anyways I woke up and got ready and went down to the hotel and I noticed there were some guys actually wearing compression legwear for the event and boy was I glad!(and yes I was wearing my A866) at flag off I saw a friend who was photographer snapped a photo of me here

lol that face!
 Climbing up the first 20 or so levels were quite okay and I started feeling the stress of my throat as I started coughing up a little and of course my legs started getting tired by the 40th but I decided to just keep going on regardless and kept counting... 50...60.. 70... 3 more levels! And finally meeting that light at the end of the tunnel! OORA! I have finished!


Went past the marshals and they looped the medal over my neck.. I know YES!! I HAVE MADE IT!!!! 

The view was breathtaking too and I was really really panting and feeling my chest burning because of the coughs. I took a HDR shot of the scenery here



I held the medal on my hand and felt soo happy! And it felt like a online gaming achievement thing of "Achievement Unlocked: Climbed Swissotel's 73 storey building."


I was flagged off with a senior marathoner in his late 50s and I was really glad didn't give up and went up all the way too! And he helped me take a photo!


And that my friends, is how I actually look, top to bottom after losing 12kilos! 

I was really glad that Activskin's tights reall play a part in my journey of weight loss and all of my sporting activities. I am not done with weight loss and vertical marathoning yet! More will be done next year!

If there are any kinds of support legwear you're looking for in sports or marathons, look no further.. because Activskin WILL SUPPORT YOU ALL THE WAY! :D

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

Outfit of the Week #10

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

Welcome to this week's OOTW! And today's OOTW is this! 





























This look was done up by Givenchy which most of you might have seen their Autumn/Winter collections that feature many male models strutting their legwear on the runway. And yes since it's winter season it is only right to keep not just your body warm.. but your legs warm too! This look is really very simple but cool! It gives a really cool street/B-Boy look for the younger men out there, the baseball cap and the high cut sneakers. And what mostly stands out in the outfit is really the print of the shirt, the legwear as its black doesn't really scream out loud for men out there but for the trained eye and yes.. the women will definitely notice them but hey as far I noticed most women I can tell you are totally fine with men wearing tights as long as they look good in them. Many would say "Why not?" though some might giggle or chuckle but it's something I'm sure they could live with but it's the mostly the men that would act really "alpha" and go like.. "Oh nahhh I'm a really manly guy, I don't need to wear these tights to keep warm!" Yeah sure.. mate you can carry on shivering and pretending not to feel cold there. :P 

Give this a try this season!

Weekly Vibe #54

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

Welcome to the 54th edition of Weekly Vibe! Starting this week's vibe I thought I'd show you all how I look top to bottom after losing 12kg! Here is a shot!


Here am I taking a selfie after the gym session sporting my A866 Tights by ActivSkin! 

Tightsplease is having a early bird Christmas discount! Check it out here

And for this colder season, UK Tights is giving a 20% off on their Silky 140 Denier Fleece tights, from GBP 5.50 to GBP4.40! Click here to order! 


Earlier this Saturday during my lunch break I went to collect my Marathon Kit for next Sunday's Vertical Marathon, heading back to office I was caught in a heavy rain, I was quite concerned that I would catch a cold after that but thank God I'm fine and still doing good and blogging today on a Sunday!



That's all I have for you friends! Have a great weekend and a coming week ahead!

Outfit of the Week #9

Hi Creative and Fashionable People!

This week's OOTW is this!














































Found this on TokyoFaces.com this guy may look like he is cosplaying a character off some anime or a video game but hey who cares? It's cold out there and he needs his fanciful scarf and some legwear! For the American folks out there, yes I have to agree that Japan's urban districts are more fashion forward than certain areas in the US, but hey there is no harm trying, no one can fault you for staying warm aye? Besides what's wrong with wearing these "long johns"? And dear European readers, what's wearing hosiery to you? It's already in your blood and culture since the Renaissance or even earlier! It's cold out there people.. stay warm! Try an outfit like this and tell me how warm do you feel aye?

Weekly Vibe #53

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

Welcome to the 53rd edition of Weekly Vibe! The festive season is nearing and I'm seeing Christmas decorations are being put up and needless to say it will/has started to snow in where you are all mostly living at. Which brings you all to the need of wearing tights! I believe sales in most hosiery stores will start increasing because of that and sales most of shops are having their discounts too!



Tightsplease has caught on it already and is having 35% on winter tights and has Tartan Tights on discount too! Check it out here


Today I attended my Air Force mate's as I'm writing this, I just got home and feeling a little light from the wine I had. I feel really happy for him being married to the one he loves! :) 


I'm really hoping personally someday I would meet the girl of my dreams... and get settled down soon.. :)

That's all I have for you today!

Have a great weekend and new week ahead!

Outfit of the Week #8

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

This week's OOTW is this!



















































Photo from http://www.tokyofaces.com/2013/03/19/mens-shorts-leggings/

First impression when I saw this photo was... "Wow! Nice hairdo and facial hair bro!! And you guys know how masculine looking facial like that looks and not to mention that it shows a form of seniority and maturity. I have been having feedbacks from readers that tell me that "Nahh the outfits you show wouldn't fit us, they are mostly for the young!" Well here is something for you gents out there! Nice blazer and shirt he got on and then came the really exotic looking shorts, black opaque tights or leggings and high cut sneakers spotting both the mature and the young at the same time! And if you got that kind of hair and facial hair, why not try something like this for this weekend? Let me know about it!

Weekly Vibe #52

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

Welcome to the 52nd edition of Weekly Vibe!! I am glad to tell you that personally I have lost 12kilos!! And I am not done yet! I will still keep going to the gym as much as I can and I have met my target and passed fitness obligation for the year!


This week also happened to be Halloween! Well unfortunately I didn't do anything at all.. well it isn't a very big thing here in Singapore except for the adults who would dress up and party at clubs and stuff. But of course isn't it the time where we would see a galore of costumes paired up with hosiery?

Here are some pics searched from the internet:


































































Tightsplease is having a discount on their opaques! Check it out here!

That's all I have for you this week! Have a great weekend and a great November!

Outfit of the Week #7

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

This week's OOTW is this! 



This look was done up by Givenchy, photo by Dr Jay's site. 

Well you probably might think... hmm isn't this guy wear a kilt or a skirt? Well maybe? or a pair of shorts that are made to look like a skirt? Maybe? Well it isn't really my point, I mean look at the blacks but I feel other than the jacket, what really stands out are yes.. the shiny gliding look tights he has got on. The look is perfectly fine except personally I felt that the footwear is a little off.. I mean sandals? I can understand that fashion designers design things in a manner of like how a concept car would be so I could try to place myself in the shoes of Givenchy's designer. I personally really liked the jacket he has on, the high collar made it look that extra cool! 

Got anything similar like the model? Share it with us!

Weekly Vibe #51

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

Firstly I wanna apologise for not posting OOTW this week, it totally slipped out of mine as a work related crisis happened to me this week and hence I totally forgot about it.. My bad. :(

Hahaha I kinda wished I could just devote this blog as a career like probably what Jessica(fantasy stockings) is doing. 



StockingsHQ staff contacted me this week asking me to review more of their products...I mean yes definitely!!! I'm not sure which products to go for and but might take a long time before I get the time to take photos and write a review.  Maybe you guys could write in and give me some suggestions as I have yet to give a reply to them! :(



And talking about StockingsHQ, they are having a free UK delivery service and half priced international delivery services till the end of October and just for this Halloween they are giving at least 10% off their fishnets! Click here now!

That's all I have for you this week! Have a great coming week ahead! :)

Special Focus: Cette Dublin Plus Size Opaque Tights

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

Today we will be taking an in depth look into the Cette Dublin Plus Size Opaque Tights.



PantyhoseHQ has kindly sent me a pair of these for review, and I was really looking forward to trying these as they have very favourable reviews and recommendations for a men's first pair of tights to try on and they rightfully deserve so and you shall find out why in this review!

First look

At first look, these are really very luxurious feeling tights, taking them off from the packaging gives you the feeling that they are truly a luxury item! These were very nicely packaged. 60 denier with sheer to waist brief, sheer toes with and a cotton gusset.

Putting them on

PantyhoseHQ sent me an XL size for this, the length of the legs had ample space and boy sliding them up... it felt really nice as they just glided up to my legs and I noticed that it had a lot of stretch!




Feel and Look

These felt really really smooth and soft and also you could feel its durability, though it is mentioned to be matte, these actually give out quite a lot of shine(which you can see in the photo above) as compared to other matte tights I got. As your knees bend you could start seeing skin showing, about some 40% opacity. It's opacity is pretty accurate to what you see in the packaging picture, it's more of a semi opaque but leaning more to an opaque appearance. 

Here is a style I came up with the Cette Dublin Plus Size Opaque Tights


T-Shirt: PUMA   Shorts: HUSH PUPPIES  Shoes: TOPMAN  Eyewear: H&M  Legwear: CETTE   Model & Photographer:  A. LUCIUS. KUNSTWERKE FABRIK

The following properties such as Comfort, Compression, Durability, Opacity, Shine & Price will be rated by numbers.

Comfort: 4 out of 5 points

Compression: 0 out of 5 
points

Durability: 4 out of 5 
points

Opacity: 3.5 out of 5 
points

Shine: 3.5 out of 5 
points

Price: 3 out of 5 
points

Price US$19.02

Material Content: 94% Nylon, 6% Lycra & 1% Cotton



Sizes: 


  •          XL = 5'1" - 5'9" Height 44-48in hips
  •          2XL = 5'1" - 5'9" Height 48-53in hips
  •          3XL = 5'3" - 5'9" Height 53-59 hips
  •          4XL = 5'3" - 5'9" Height 58 - 63 hips

Colours: Black, Ristretto & Chartreux


Pros: These are very comfortable, won't make you heat up too much as it's 60 denier, very smooth and glides up to your leg, very stretchy, decent price paying for tights of this quality and very good for men who want to try tights for the first time.

Cons: They are probably not the cheapest tights you will find around but come on hey these are good quality tights! If you're looking for something totally opaque these wouldn't work out for you.


To buy them go to this link! (As of now 23rd of October 2013 size 4XL is currently out of stock)

Conclusion:

These are really great tights, this is one of those that you know you should have in your wardrobe if you are a guy who wear tights and if you are wanting to try tights on, these are the ones that you should really really go for!
