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! :)

Thanks for reading!

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!

Weekly Vibe #49

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

This week was a lot of losing for me!! Well what did I lose? I realised that by this week, I lost 9kg! Which placed me at a 80s kilos range! It was a scale that the last time I saw it was in 2006! I'm really happy! My weight loss efforts are paying off! :)


This week I also got restock of my support tights from Activskin, I got the A866 and tried something new, the A839 light support microfiber tights in black. 




Weather starting to get colder? Tightsplease is offering a 30% off their selected Aristoc tights, follow this link

I'm actually not feeling too well for this Sunday as I had a really bad tummy discomfort, I had over excessive amount of gas in my tummy but had problems dispelling them hence it caused very serious discomfort as I was sleeping, I woke up squirming in discomfort. But now I got better! Thank God for that! :)

I wish you guys well and happy!

Outfit of the Week #5

Hi Creative and Fashionable people! 

Today we have this for OOTW!


The weather is getting cold for most of our European and American friends! Time to layer em clothes!! 

You might recognise this photo from Men Wearing Tights With Shorts Tumblr page and it's styled by fashion designer Antonio Azzuolo. 

I really like how the outfit was being matched, red coated shades, red patterned, bow tie, red blazer with a fur covered lapel, white shirt, black knee length shorts, black opaque tights and maroon coloured shoes, this outfit is really full of RED! And I liked how Antonio used red and as we know, red is a very visually striking colour, it can mean danger, fear, beauty and sexiness. The model definitely gave off a very masculine sexiness... well not because everything was mostly red but how other colours came into play. And the coolest thing is that you don't even have to pay hundreds of dollars to buy branded fashion designer labelled apparel, just match whatever you have got in your wardrobe or get them from the thrift store! This is one look that is yet simple but stylish! 

Try it this weekend and let me know how it goes!

Thanks for reading!

Weekly Vibe #48

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

Welcome to the 48th edition of Weekly Vibe! I hope you all had a great starting week for this month of October! Time really flies and now we are nearing the end of the year already! 

This week also marked that I have lost 7kg since late August as I started my diet and 5 times a week of training at the gym and I thought why not I snap a pic of myself? And here is how I look now!

Hot hot day...

Anyways early this week I also signed myself up for a Vertical Marathon this November and this time it is to scale the Swissotel in Singapore which boasts 75 stories and 226 metres high with 1,336 steps. For the past 2 Vertical Marathons I have done this year, they have just been 40 stories high and this addition 35 stories is gonna be quite a challenge for me and I believe that it will be like a great sporting milestone and achievement for me!



You might probably be wondering why are you reading in pink? Well October marks also Breast Cancer Awareness month and with that Tightsplease is donating 20% of their pink tights sales to Breast Cancer Care Charity. Really great idea from them! You could help by supporting this cause be it for your Halloween costume or for your special one start ordering here!

That is all I have for you this week! Have an enjoyable weekend and have a great month ahead!

Outfit of the Week #4

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

It's 4th edition of OOTW! And today we have this!



For most of you people here I don't think this picture is anything but new, since you can find it on wikipedia, and it is a photo of famous model Tyson Beckford wearing Emilio Cavallini's line of male tights. 

But why focus on this? 

Well what makes this outfit tick is because of the way Tyson Beckford pulled it off, he didn't wear really short shorts but capri length denims or probably rolled them up so, but being at capri length, what it does is that the capri length shorts gives off an "illusion" that this guy probably isn't wearing tights at all but long socks! And this look my friends will suit men who are just trying out for a start, I remember starting out with a look like this first and then I started rolling up my pants higher and higher till it went knee cap length! This outfit would really help "train" your guts to starting wearing tights openly with typical male threads! 

Why not try this over the weekend?

Thanks for the reading!
