Weekly Vibe #143

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

Welcome to Weekly Vibe #143! We are just a few more days to our 3rd anniversary! This year is really zooming past quickly! UK Tights have very kindly provided all of you the big fans of hosiery and this blog a discount code!




Use "LEGWEARFASH4MEN" as a discount code and enjoy 10% off all of their products, do note that they are one use only and it is good through the 6th of September! 

And above and beyond that, UK Tights was really very kind to send me some hosiery products as anniversary gifts! 

And here is what they sent me!:

Silky Ballet Adult Convertible Tights



Charnos 60 Denier Opaque Tights (one of my favourites!)


Pretty Polly Legs On The Go 60 Denier Light Support Tights


Last but not the least.. surprise surprise! Tiffany Quinn Sheer Front Stripe Tights (because Marta knew I liked them!)


You might be wondering.. "Wait.. are you doing ballet now? Why do you need convertible ballet tights for?" Hahaha nonono! I'm not doing ballet but as you might know I'm doing Lightsaber combat and I realised that the combat form we use is really pretty intensive and very close to be like dancing, plenty of leg movement however some might still ask "but why do you need the convertible ones?" Well because I got myself individual toe styled shoes which I believe will help me with my agility as I flank my opponents in the duels 


Here is a clip of me having a duel with one of my friends (I'm the one with the red lightsaber)

video

As you can see we duel for 30 seconds each time, and you can see it's pretty intense, it gets more intensive as you and your opponent gets better at his/her craft. The 30 seconds may seem short but in reality you don't feel how fast time goes until you hear the umpire counting down to zero. It seems a lot of fun indeed however you do get hurt if you are not careful, I got my right pinky hurt pretty bad last Sunday though I had gloves on, and on yesterday, I hit my opponent's right index finger pretty bad unfortunately he didn't wear any gloves... but whew it wasn't a fracture. But yeah martial arts is a painful sport altogether and not for the faint hearted I would say!

Preparing for a long hour flight, or just wanting to keep your legs massaged? UK Tights have 10% off Oroblu Wellness Box and Couture Sheer Relief support tights!





Do note that these are while stocks last! 

That's all I have for you this week! I'm so looking forward to our 3rd anniversary and enjoy the discounts!

Thanks for reading!

Outfit of the Week #99

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

Welcome to Outfit of the Week #99! This week we feature this outfit! 




This look was featured on Men Wearing Tights Under Shorts part of a German based fashion Label Sadak's Autumn 15/16 collection.

It's always nice to see fashion designers using and if I haven't counted wrongly, so far I have noticed 76 fashion designers who have used hosiery for men as part of a fashion accessory!! And that also more well-known fashion labels such as Givenchy, Issey Miyake, Prada and Agnès B also use it as part for accessory and I don't see how it should men from wearing tights at all. It's even still catching in 2015! I remember a reader @freeman who followed me through Twitter told me this and I totally shared that idea that leggings could very be a trojan horse for men to wear tights! I totally dig that mate!



Anyways back to our model here. I really like the printed design on the T-shirt, somehow it gives a subdued Hawaiian feel, not the usual colourful stuff but a grayscale feel to it, it doesn't give the feel of sunny Hawaii but more of a hipster casual feel. the shorts are interesting too, it seems like one of those really light materials used, interesting use of black coloured sneakers, absolutely a great outfit! 

I'd totally do this, would you?

Thanks for reading!

Weekly Vibe #142

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

Welcome to Weekly Vibe #142! I had an incredible time last week, we celebrated our 26th anniversary in church and also had the privilege to shoot my ministry leader's 2nd born child at 2 weeks old! I knew him back in 2010 and boy how fast time flies!


Isn't he cute? Well I waited for 3 hours for him to fall asleep but I ended up doing shots of him in a semi-sleeping state.. Hahaha! And yes!! That's my day job if I shoot photos of infant babies! I spend more time waiting than actual photography!

As you might know that I'm into Lightsaber duelling and I wanted to find ways to upgrade my gear for mobility and speed, and I found myself looking at Vibram toes shoes like these..



But I was thinking.. if I were to wear these, I couldn't wear footed tights... unless they had individual toes and so I started looking all over the internet and voila! I found something really lovely..

Enter Toe Sox!




The company's website is based in Germany and with my limited knowledge of German it seems like the products are actually US in origin.
They don't just sell toe socks but toe tights too! Both in sheer and opaque in different colours and shades, compression and even fishnets!

But what made it really interesting were how they presented their hosiery products, well for starters, it isn't like mantyhose.net or tights-for-men.com where you actually see that they are actually marketing for males in general; at first look on Toe Sox homepage, you actually see photos of women modelling for their products, but if you clicked on Nylonstrümpfe(which is nylon tights/pantyhose) you are greeted with legs of men!



And ironically the only pair of female legs or body you see are for the Compression tights and if you actually looked into that link, you'd find other thumbnail picks with a men's feet in them in casual footwear! 

It appears that Toe Sox are actually marketing for both men and women! I mean Wow! And of course I took the liberty to contact them through email and I'm waiting for a response.. I mean woot!!! It's so cool! I'm glad my toe tights troubles have been solved!

Trasparenze fans would be really happy as UK Tights have started selling their newest line of Autumn collection


There are altogether 35 new styles that include tights, stockings, and for the younger ones.

Looking for something kinky in bed with your wife? Check out the new Tiffany Quinn fishnet body range from UK Tights!



Last but not the least, fans of ActivSkin tights are in a good treat too! In view of the dog days of summer for the Northern Hemisphere they are having a 15% off  with a minimum purchase of $30 with the code DOGDAYS, do note that offer ends on the 31st of August!




Do check them out!

That's all I have for you, have a great new week ahead!

Outfit of the Week #98

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

Welcome to Outfit of the Week #98! This week we feature this!



Source: Aliexpress

This look is increasingly getting popular in the streets! Instead of plain black leggings, patterned leggings are seen now! I believe this is a good outfit that our friends can pull off, I'm a little neutral about the red shoes, I think they look fine and I really like the high cut feature! Personally I really like the pattern of the leggings, but knowing that it's cotton kinda puts me off, I'd personally prefer nylon because I feel that nylon is better for my legs to breathe. 

What do you think?

Weekly Vibe #141

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

Welcome to Weekly Vibe #141! I realised that I have to blog one day later on a Monday because I realised that after Lightsaber duelling in the Sunday evening, I get home pretty late and exhausted from training! I hope you guys are okay with that! :X


Anyways I do have very good news! I'm sure you all are very well acquainted with StockingsHQ, well if you aren't StockingsHQ are one of the specialists in hold ups, stockings, garter belts and vintage hosiery, if those products interest you, you should check them out! StockingsHQ isn't what I'm featuring, what I'm featuring today is their new sister site Tights And More





You probably might read about it from Hosiery For Men if you follow our friend! 

What makes Tights And More unique? This statement:



While they are probably not the first online hosiery online shop to do this, but I think this is interesting, a huge plus for us consumers! Tights And More along with the HQ shops are one of the few that carries Nylonica, Playtex and more of Gipsy line of products. 



They are also have a "Write a review and win the product free!" even if you don't even own the product! Wow!


I bet Hosiery For Men is going to beat me at that and win them all!! Hahahaha! 

You also can enter into their new competition get a chance to win a 50GBP to spend at Tights And More!


This is definitely one of the hosiery web shops worth looking out for!

Outfit of the Week #97

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

Welcome to Outfit of the Week #97! This week we are featuring this outfit!



Source: Logo Factory at DHgate.com

If you looked into the link, it's an outfit suggested to be worn with the leggings Logo Factory sells, wouldn't it be nice if sellers of men's or unisex hosiery could actually make certain outfit suggestions? Would have been much much cooler I think! Being a Christian I really like that T-shirt the model wears! Hahaha! Overall I feel the colour combination is really awesome here, black and white and I find that printed words on clothes make good aesthetics as well, the cat patterned leggings really compliments well on the outfit, if you could imagine them to just be plain black leggings, I really doubt it would be stand out, it is always nice to style with patterned tights so don't hold back! :)

What do you think? I'd totally go for it!

Thanks for reading!

Weekly Vibe #140

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

Welcome to Weekly Vibe #140! As you probably have guessed this week was a week of celebration for Singaporeans as we have reached our 50th year of independence! As for most Singaporeans including myself we were out celebrating most of the time with the long weekend holidays! Personally for me for Saturday and Sunday I finally started my lightsaber duel training!


Here is my lightsaber! :D






It was really good fun! Learning how to duel with a lightsaber which also helps to teach how to defend yourself if you well... don't have a lightsaber but have a stick in hand. Hahaha! Doing this thing was also fulfilling my Star Wars geekness too! 

For fans of Spanx you are in a for great treat! UK Tights is having a special deal on their Spanx products




Enjoy 10% off with SPANX10 discount code! 

You can also win a Bare Leg Look box set with Tightsplease special giveaway!



5 lucky customers will be picked and they will be having these 5 awesome products as shown on the top! You can have it for yourself or give it to someone!

If you are also a fan of ActivSkin tights, Steve is having a special closeout sale for his A582 Microfabric Full support Control Brief Pantyhose they are usually going at $4.99 but if you use the code MED582 it will be $2.99 for the next pair you purchase. However currently only medium sizes are in stock, black with a dozen left and tan with about 4 dozens left! Check them out!




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

May the Force serve you! Hahaha!

Outfit of the Week #96

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

Welcome to Outfit of the Week #96! This week we will be featuring one of my heroes +Eugene Wong!




If you haven't checked it out, this is his birthday outfit! It's been 3 years since I knew Eugene! Though I don't always agree to all of his outfits most of the time due to mostly colour combinations and other things, we both however conclude that "Tights? Why not?" but I personally believe that we are both doing different things in men's hosiery world, Eugene to me is a man who is bashing through the untravelled path telling the world that we man can wear tights too and what I'm doing is walking on the travelled path which he had already paved a way suggesting how men can wear them nicely and I'm pretty sure we are not pioneers but at least I'm sure we are pretty known in the internet world of men's hosiery. 

Kudos to you Eugene! I hope you had a great birthday and my prayers to you! :)

Weekly Vibe #139

Hi Creative and Fashionable people! 

Welcome to 139th edition of Weekly Vibe #139! I'm really excited actually! Because I have ordered my first lightsaber from Ultrasabers!

Photos credited by Saber Authority

Initiate V4 with soundboard
I got this model but got a few tweaks to it which you will get to see it when it comes on Thursday! I'm going register myself to a lightsaber duelling club based locally! Getting really hyped up and already practising with sticks! Hahaha! "Finally I will fulfil my destiny.." Hahahahaha! And in fact with that I'm actually looking to do a little Star Wars film with my other friends who own lightsabers too and probably I will be the Sith Lord who wears black tights under his robe hahaha! Ahh mentioning that reminded me of  Ralph Fiennes who mentioned in a Press Conference that he had to wear tights under his Voldemort robe as he hunted the young boy wizard Harry Potter!! Hahahaha!

For the next 3 days from Monday to Wednesday it would be last pre-school centre we will be shooting, though it may be tiring I'm actually quite looking forward to it because children are incredibly charming and cute! The coming week is quite a good one for Singaporeans as we will be having a long weekend break from Friday to Sunday as it will be our 50th year independent! Woohoo!! and Sunday will also be Lightsaber duelling day too! Woot!!!



Oh and has anyone noticed that UK Tights have changed their website's interface? It looks awesomely neat! And also not to mention they are having fantastic deals on Kunert, Falke and Pamela Mann's series of Moulin Rouge tights!






Do take note of the ending dates of the deals!! 

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

Thanks for reading!

Outfit of the Week #95

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

Welcome to Outfit of the Week #95! This week we will be featuring the outfit I did for Street Legwear Fashion #July 2015!




Here it's an entire ensemble of black! The long wide neck top skull patterned came from H&M and so did the shorts, the leggings I wore wear the Silky Leather Look leggings obtained from UK Tights. Tote bag from ZINC, shoes were Vans. 



I feel that black leather leggings make very good legwear accessory, you could also go for leather jacket for outerwear and I'm pretty sure it would look excellent! These are leggings that I actually like! You should try them too! Do let me know how it turns out! :)
Thanks for reading!
