Goodbye Mr Lee

Hi friends,

Sunday was the State Funeral for Singapore's founding father and first Prime Minister, indeed the entire week had been an emotional and dark week for every Singaporean including myself.



Indeed many tears were shed for the great man but it's also through this entire mourning week, we can see how united we as a people are. I'm sure the late Mr Lee would have been very pleased if he saw. 

Thank you so much Mr Lee that you have given up your life for the country, truly there are no individual that has reached the level of contribution you made for the nation. You are an astounding visionary that has brought this nation which started off as a fishing village and that many thought could never make it into a nation that is now a bustling metropolis that has impacted the world over!

As a mark of respect, I will start blogging again in the coming weekend.

Thanks for reading.

Rest in Peace, Mr Lee Kuan Yew

Hi friends,

Today is indeed a sad day, one of Singapore's founding fathers Mr Lee Kuan Yew left us in the wee hours of Monday morning.


He will always be remembered as the man who led the transform of Singapore from a fishing village to what it is now.

Rest in Peace, Sir.

Weekly Vibe #122

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

Welcome to Weekly Vibe #122! Awwww right!! I'm so happy today as here I am blogging on my new machine!! An Alienware X51 R2!! I had a really radical deal which costed me about $1799 (US$1306) at an IT Fair at Suntec City. It usually retails at $1999(US$1451) I didn't just save myself $200 but also got a free set of Alienware Keyboard and Mouse! This machine is one of the ultimate for gaming and boy I totally enjoy gaming! 




Other than a good deal for the Alienware desktop, UK Tights has awesome Elbeo deals as well! 



Elbeo is the name most people would think of when it comes to support hosiery, they have been in the business for decades their products are highly affordable too the most pricey product being at GBP9.70 and the lowest priced product at GBP6.99 Reviews are generally fair on these products. So why not?

That's all I have for you all as I have to carry on setting this desktop up!

Outfit of the Week #78

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

Welcome to Outfit of the Week #78! Today we will be featuring this outfit!




This photo was featured on Men Wearing Tights tumblr page

Here we are looking at a similar formal style we featured last week of Kevin-Prince Boateng. Indeed the blazer the model is wearing is really stylish, probably something you wouldn't find at your nearest boutique, the shirt, capri length pants and opaque tights aren't too uncommon to find and woot check out his SHOES!!! Oh my gosh! It's so cool! RAD colour combination there! Overall I don't think this outfit is odd but I believe pretty formal looking if not gives the creative celebrity feel like Kevin-Prince Boateng in his outfits with shorter pants and tights. 

What do you think? I'd would try this someday when the event arises!

Thanks for reading!

Weekly Vibe #121

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

Welcome to the 121th edition of Weekly Vibe! This week was pretty okay as workload was quite relaxed but on Sunday I was really glad that one of my friends whom I knew got married! I knew her back when she was still 18 in school uniform but now a teacher and a wife too! I'm really happy for them both!


Our friends at UK Tights also recently made visit to Pretty Legs' hosiery factory in the outskirts Leicester, UK. If you are really curious how Pretty Legs or how hosiery is being produced, check out their post on their visit to Pretty Legs' factory. To be honest I would like to go visit a hosiery factory some day as well!

Here are some pictures they shared on their blog site





And also from UK Tights, they having a special 3 for 2 promotion on their Wolford Satin Touch 20 tights


Do hurry up as it's just for a limited time only!

Recently I found out about this really interesting brand called "Platino" from Spain and they make really interesting hosiery products! Their line of opaque tights and fashion tights really caught my attention!

Take a look at the Platino Luxe Fata Tights They look similar to the CdR's Uppsala tights


Platino Jennifer Tights


Platino unique no waistband Total Comfort 40


Platino Janne Tights


If you really interested, you can check out their line of products in the Shapings site

That's all I have for you!

Outfit of the Week #77

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

This week we are featuring something a little special! Instead of models and myself we are having a German Footballer! And he is non other than Kevin-Prince Boateng of Schalke 04!

Photo from woonko.com
Awesome!! I was really happy that a celebrity is carrying the legwear look! And actually this isn't his first photo! Here is another one!

Photo from Stefan PS's Flickr page

I realised that actually in terms of clothes, we both share quite similar styles, the oversized or drop crotch shorts and the high cut sneakers. I'm really pretty sure at least for the 2nd photo, he is definitely wearing tights and not leggings, they look like 80 denier tights from here, you could tell from some of his skin was showing and you know what? His legs were shaven! You could find other photos of him and you can clearly see that he has shaven legs.. well I'm too sure why but probably having shaven legs would reduce drag when he is dribbling the ball... or shaven legs look better in tights..? Hahaha! I really really like his style! I probably going to try the style in the 2nd photo, shirt, blazer and oversized shorts! I'm pretty sure +Eugene Wong would probably say.. "Hey! That's my style!" Hahaha! or he would have commented to me.. "See.. I told you it would work out!" Yes yes.. I'm sorry +Eugene Wong.. and I repent! Seriously I really like those clean white sneakers and in fact one of the reasons why black opaque tights were gaining popularity again was because women could effectively make their shoes stand out and from here you could really see his sneakers standing out and I like his sneakers! 

Kudos to Herr Kevin-Prince Boateng!

Weekly Vibe #120

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

Welcome to Weekly Vibe #120! Another great end to the week I hope for everyone though it may not be good but I believe that the coming days will get better because Spring is here and it's a new beginning! :)


I really like the bluetooth wireless earphones my girlfriend got me for my birthday!


I felt really blessed to be honest! Also on Friday the shipment of tights which I ordered from UK Tights have arrived in Singapore and I'm going to collect them at the post office on Monday! Man I'm really glad this week has already ended for them as I have been pulling off a 6 day work week for the past 2 weeks, I know I shouldn't complain but I'm really missing out a lot... but oh well I won't be working on another Sunday till next month! 

I was really excited when I saw UK Tights Blog's recent post titled "Innovative Hosiery: The Future of Hosiery" I was like Wow!! even the title got me really excited! The few things that really caught my attention were the hidden under-the-toes seam tights (Pierre Mantoux Veloutine 0 Ultra Sheer Tights) which retail at 14.99 GBP


The next thing would be the Pretty Polly Heatsense and Coolsense tights, feeling cold but not wanting to wear those overly thick tights? Pretty Polly Heatsense has a special heatsense yarn so you don't need wear those thick wooly itchy tights! Feeling warm but still wanting the opaque look? Pretty Polly Coolsense has a unique stay cool technology and yet you get the opaque cover! You'd might be thinking.. with all these cool technology they should cost a bomb! But guess what? Both of the sense series go for 9.99GBP each!

One more I would like to feature are the Charnos Velour Lined Tights with Cotton Boot Sock, these are actually very unique tights that features a cotton mix socks that helps keep your feet breathe and feel comfy all day. But then again this isn't new right? Yes yes I know about Bootights and they are indeed great as well.. however if you are not a tight budget and have US$32 to spare.. why not? Or if you are, you can get these Charnos tights at 11.99GBP!


I have only shared a portion of UK Tights Blog's post, do read the whole thing and comment! 

As I have said... Spring is upon us! And UK Tights have added a couple of new items for this season!

Do check out their new spring series!  

Tightsplease also has a special bulk discount deals on their opaque tights! 


Oh sweet my favourite Cette Dublin tights are on a offer too! Offer is still the 20th of March! Don't miss it!

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

Outfit of the Week #76

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

Welcome to Outfit of the Week #76! And this week we are featuring this outfit!

 


This outfit was featured on http://alphalibrae.tumblr.com/post/102618308430 (Enter the site at your own risk!)

This is an outfit that I believe most of the guys started out with and so did I! T-shirt, shorts, tights and shoes, I mean of course... We wouldn't be wearing a tunic... would we? Hahaha! I think this is a very good starting outfit for a guy to start don tights with. I wouldn't recommend something too loud of a colour if you don't wish to have too much attention on your legs, Black, dark grey, navy colour tights are a great choice, you could pair it up with the same colour as your top which is generally a safe rule of thumb.

I hope this can inspire those who are thinking of trying them with shorts and getting out of the phase of wearing it under their pants. Trust me on this, wearing them with shorts is a really liberating feeling! If you haven't worn them with shorts.. try them!

Thanks for reading!

Weekly Vibe #119

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

Welcome to Weekly Vibe #119! How time flies and we are already in March!! Unfortuately I had to spend the first day of March working on a Sunday... well I believe some of our friends here also work on a Sunday as well... so why am I complaining? Oh wells.. :X 


Well anyways something really interesting happened, well I always made it a habit to wear my tights for work on Sunday.. well with shorts of course! I didn't have to do much on a Sunday as all I needed to do was watch the little shop from 10am to 6pm. But anyways! One of the neighbours next to my little shop noticed something, she stared at my legs and she said.. well in mandarin "Ohh! Men's pantyhose?" I was really laughing it out in my heart because I always wore them and you finally noticed them!! Haha! and of course I nodded. I was kinda intrigued that she didn't notice them all the past 2 years... incredible! 

I happened to be wearing the amazing black Cette Dublin Tights which PantyhoseHQ kindly sent to me a while back ago I have also written a review on them as well. If you are looking to buy them, UK Tights are fully stocked with all sizes and colours.


I also hope you guys already made good use of the UK Tights' 10% off code!! Because it already expired as of the 28th of February!! :( Well if you haven't it isn't so bad as UK Tights is having a special Mothers' Day free gift with any orders over a certain amount!


The catch is it ends on the midnight(UK time) 3rd of March! So start shopping

Wolford fans anyone here? I know I'm one! Tightsplease is having a Flash sale on their Wolford collection with up to 30% off! 


Be quick as I really have no idea when it ends.. probably just a week! Get cracking!

Well that's all I have for you! Time for me to get to the gym soon!

Thanks for reading!

Outfit of the Week #75

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

Welcome to Outfit of the Week #75! And this week we are featuring this outfit!



Photo found on Ya821's Flickr page

Isn't he Stan Lee? He sure does look like him from here!! But just kidding it's not him actually.... however he is a great sport! I really like his style and he carries it well for his age, he isn't too loud for his style, not too conservative. I really like the knit sweater he has on it, which matches the colour of his shoes. It seems to me that he is wearing sheer black tights as well(something I haven't dared to try yet) and I actually kinda think that he is dressed pretty "camouflaged" no one would actually notice his legs as he seemed to be dressed like what most men would in a cold weather! 

If "Stan Lee" here a silver generation gentleman can pull it off, I don't see why our silver generation friends can't do it! Give me an amen for that! 

What do you think?
