Christmas 2012: What I Wore

I was so determined to wear shorts and hosiery, this time. I even tried to plan it out well in advance. If you will pardon the cheesy expression: I got cold feet.

I began to wonder how it would look. I was concerned that I would appear too naked and feminine to everybody. Also, we were running late, but that is not really an excuse.

I originally intended to wear a pair of mostly opaques, but somehow, it felt all wrong.

I thought about it on the way to the gathering. I think that it is because I do not usually walk around anywhere with pantyhose feet exposed. Usually, wearing shoes completes the look, and this makes it feel more masculine to me. This is especially more true, now that I am wearing boots casually.

Also, when wearing in public, I do not really interact so closely with strangers. Therefore every short relationship is a disposable relationship, which means that I do not have to worry about what they think. With the relatives, I do not want them to think about why I would be wearing them, unless they intend to be open minded. Even though they have seen my book, and even though they have seen me in hosiery, and even though they are not negative, it is still hard to know exactly they feel.

I think that this opaque textured grey hosiery with black shorts combination is a fantastic solution.

The opaqueness seems more masculine, and opaqueness seems more appropriate in winter. Even though that night's weather was not too cold for me, it was cold for a lot of people, so they probably tended to feel that sheers for guys would be too cold.

Also, the textured fabric gives a more complete look, in my opinion. It seems masculine, too.

My only complaint for that outfit is the sweater, which I like so much. I am concerned that it might be hard to clean. It is machine washable, but I feel that a machine could wear it out and stretch it out. I could hand wash it, but I find that hand washing takes so long, and that it is hard to know clean it really is.

I think that this machine washable sweater might work better.

It does not stretch as is durable. It is already textured in a way that hides any pills, so machine washing will not harm it. It is just a question of whether or not the style works with the black shorts and the grey textured opaques.

You now know what I did and what I think. Tell me what you wore to your Christmas gatherings. What do you think about my planned style for next year? What do you think about guys wearing sheers or mostly-opaques without shoes? Is it an incomplete look? Please leave your advice in the comments below!

Christmas 2012: Hosiery Worn By Extended Family And Guest

I honestly did not expect much to happen at this year's gathering. I thought that hosiery was becoming more popular for wearing in public, and for small groups of women, but I thought that most would lose interest.

It turned out that 3 relatives and 1 guest wore hosiery.

The guest wore patterned hosiery. From a distance, I thought that she wore mostly-opaques that had patterns, but when I got closer, it appeared to be a patterned mesh, like fishnets. From a distance, it looked good. I did not want to stare, so I did not get a close enough look to guess at how comfortable they were. They looked like they were midrange to high quality, and seemed to match her dark skirt suit.

My niece wore black opaques, which appeared to be cotton. They did not look super awesome, but they seemed to match her party dress. She is just a kid, though, so any hosiery is a good influence for her.

My cousin wore a green dress, which appeared to be a mostly opaque chifon material. She wore black sheers. When I got close, I noticed how finely knit the hosiery fabric was, so I assumed that she was wearing HUE, or some other higher end brand. This was totally surprising, because she doesn't usually wear dresses or hosiery. She is not a tomboy, but she comes across as more casual in her daily wear, so I was glad to see that she embraced something better. Maybe she will be a great influence on others.

My aunt wore nude sheers. She typically wears some kind of nude hosiery, so I was not too surprised.

I was happy to see 3 generations of women wearing hosiery. Each of them wore dresses or skirts.

Another cousin wore leggings as pants.

Come back tomorrow to find out what I wore [or did not wear, actually...].

PIppa Middleton's Golden Outfit And Black Mostly Opaques

A writer at Yahoo! News does not seem to like Pipa Middleton's gold coloured outfit. Do you agree?

I have such mixed feelings about it. On 1 hand, I do not like the style or the colour, but on the other hand, it seems to look like it should be okay. I feel that she should continue to wear hosiery with it, but I also feel that the hosiery does not help it much. It would look better, if she wore matte skin coloured sheers. However, the whole outfit could use a nice visual break, which means that black hosiery would be better.

It is a very tough call. I would love to see what you fashion people have to say.

Pippa Middleton's Outfit Of The Day Has Mostly Opaque Hosiery

While I still find her beautiful and desirable, I do not find that particular dress very flattering. The black opaques seem very delicious, though.

Pippa Middleton's dress and hosiery

The dress fabric seems to cling to the hosiery, and also seems to show the waistband underneath. Also, the dress seems to have fabric pills.

See more photos of her walking along in this gallery. The other photos might show the problems more clearly.

I find that the wrinkles make her look a little messier, and may even give her the appearance of bulges. What do you think? Am I being too hard on her?

Added Word Verification

I have been getting blog spam lately. It has been getting offensive to me, because they do not even try to write intelligently, and I bet that it was written by hand, too.

I got rid of word verification originally, because a friend would comment, and she did not want deal with it. Now that she does not comment much, I might as well try it.

Used Hosiery: Sauna Clothing

The other day, I had some time, so I stepped into my parents's sauna, for the first time. I actually felt quite intimidated, because I typically do not enjoy heat. It was a positive experience, though, because I was able to do a stretching exercise. I used it by myself, so I was also able to wear bike shorts length hosiery, just for fun. Not surprisingly, wearing hosiery without shorts or pants was a pleasant experience. If you are fortunate enough to have access to a private sauna, then I encourage you to save some hosiery for wearing in the sauna.

Serene Branson's Legs

Usually, the videos and photos that I share have a delightful, an interesting or a fun tone to them. However, I thought that I would try something slightly different. Check out this video of a news reporter, Serene Branson, who had serious problem occur as she was in the middle of reporting on camera. She lost her ability to say what she wanted. She talked about her experience during an interview, after she got out of the hospital.

She wore hosiery during the interview. The interviewer seemed to, also. I am glad that Serene did. The outfit, that she chose, gave her that touch of respectability, which is in contrast to her ordeal, which might have taken some respectability away from her.

Have you ever had that happen to you or somebody you know? Do you think that what I said about respectability is correct?

Movie: I Don't Know How She Does It

Sarah Jessica Parker wears hosiery so rarely, that I had to do a double take. She wore them in at least a couple of scenes. I never bothered to watch the whole movie. She must have been so uncomfortable wearing them. ;^p Why else would she not wear them??

If you would like to see her wear them, then watch I Don't Know How She Does It this Friday.

Is She Wearing Pantyhose? #73; #74

I was looking for information to help somebody with Parkinson's disease, and I stumbled across Gal #73 & #74. I thought that it was kind of odd, because hosiery seemed unnecessary. Since hosiery is unnecessary, maybe it is just my imagination that they are wearing hosiery. What do you think?

SecretLegwear.com Is Alive!

It happened today, or at least in the last few days. I actually gave up any hope of seeing it get started again. I was quite disappointed. SecretLegwear.com seems quite nice. There is a mailing list there. Go check it all out.

Later on, today, I plan to download all of their photos and product information. Last time, I assumed that it would always be up. I think that it went down over a year ago.

I checked to see if Silkshosiery.com would work, but unfortunately not.

Just Sold Hosiery At The Front Door

I'm so happy. It's good to get a pair of hosiery off of my hands.

This is the first time that somebody actually came to my home to buy it. A lady planned to come out to look at them. When I explained that many of the pairs might not fit, she did not want to come all the way out here, just to look at only 1 or 2 styles. So, she sent her husband, who was already heading out this way. He came by several moments, ago.

I really hope that she likes them, because these are supposed to be comparable to Wolford. If I recall correctly, I told her that there are aspects that are not as good. Also, I showed her photos of the products as they were, so she should know what she is getting.

I am hoping to add this to the boutique, but if I do, then I will probably need to use a different shopping cart, which would confuse people. I am sure that I can work through it, though. I am excited to think about the possibilities.

Used Hosiery: Bottle Cooler

Instead of throwing away kneehighs or any other hosiery [even socks! :^/], save them for faster cooling on hot days.

Soak them in water, then put the drink inside the hosiery leg/foot. Place the whole thing inside the freezer for about 15 minutes. The water helps it to cool faster, and the hosiery helps the water to stay at the side of the drink.

Go East Art: Get To Know Smadar

Yay! We can begin the first part of the interview!

Many of you, who have Twitter accounts, probably have heard of Go East Art. Smadar [a.k.a. Sam] is the owner of the business and the designer of the hosiery, and she has graciously shared with us her enthusiasm, inspiration, and tastes to get the first part of the interview started. We also discussed Halloween costumes. I will try to save the best material for later, so that means her answers might seem to be out of order.

Before I read her responses, I intended to edit her spelling and grammar, but after reading, I decided against that, because I found that I could really feel her emotion, while I read her text. Also, seeing her casual writing style helps us to imagine how she presents herself, when she is casual. Normally, I would edit, but I believe that you might agree with me for this interview.

Here is some social media contact information.

Trying Out Waistband-Free Sheers

I must say that it is nice to be wearing sheers again. I will not wear this too much, as I appreciate the feel of thicker hosiery, but it is delightful to go back to sheers every now and then. In a way, I feel that wearing sheers is where our roots are, and wearing opaques is almost too normal for trend setting.

package

A pair of sheers from my stock is damaged so badly, that I need to get compensation from the manufacturer. I decided to wear this damaged pair as a sample.

I like the feel of having a low rise pair of hosiery. I do not think that this was intended to be low rise, but because it does not have to be pulled all the way up, it can be worn as a low rise pair.

The hosiery has a dry hard feel to it, in that it does not feel like skin or satin. It does feel very smooth.

I have a 30″ inseam, and am wearing size B. There is a lot leg length, and it could stretch more without problems, but I would rather have a size C or maybe D, because I prefer to keep the fabric as unstretched as possible. Unstretched fabric is unstressed fabric, and it will last longer, and feel softer.

Thanksgiving And Hosiery And Shorts Went Well

I had mixed feelings about which pair of hosiery to wear. I wanted to wear sheers or partially opaque hosiery, but I am not used to wearing them without slippers or shoes. At home, I always wear closed toe slippers, so it seemed kind of weird to wear sheers with my pantyhosed feet exposed. 1 thing that I do not like about wearing hosiery on carpet is that the carpet can ruin the hosiery.

I decided to go with my regular footless opaques and a pair of socks, for this family gathering. I will try to wear sheers at Christmas.

I am pleased to say that it worked out very well. Nobody said anything bad. People talked about hosiery that they wore. I never got the impression that they brought up the topic because of me, so I do not know what to make of it. It is interesting to know that my relatives do wear hosiery, but they do not wear it often. It is too bad. I wish that more of them would.

What did you wear to Thanksgiving? Thank you for reading!

Hosiery Adovcate's Shop Is Open!

I am starting to outgrow Hosiery Advocate's Boutique. So it is time to open Hosiery Advocate's Shop! The latter allows for more products to be sold in the same place, and it also allows for small customizations on the product pages that the boutique does not allow for. This is because of the service offered by each site, which is beyond my control, unless I pay extra.

Customers will find the same service, prices, and shipping rates. I will be drawing from the same stock, when fulfilling orders, so customers should feel comfortable shopping there.

I want to keep using Hosiery Advocate's Boutique to feature special products.

Bacteria Eats Nylon Byproduct

Normally, I do not post information about science in this blog. However, this seemed truly fascinating, because nylon is related to it.

This is useful information for organizations that might want to find a way of disposing of nylon, without putting them in landfills.

What I find interesting is that bacteria outside of nylon factories created a way to digest nylon biproducts. This is significant to nerds, because it shows what kinds of abilities can come about in a very short time.

Used Hosiery: Sink Protecter

I just found out the other day, that placing something on the bottom of the sink is a good way of protecting it against scratches. When it comes to scouring big pots, it can be difficult to keep the pot steady. The movement will scratch the sink and make it look bad.

I suggest putting some hosiery at the bottom of the sink, and then placing the pot on there. You obviously can use other materials, too.

#Mantyhose Feet On Smooth Foot Rest

For the last while, I have been enjoying the delight of hosiery covered feet on a specially covered foot rest. I get to rub my feet over the smooth surface. The cover is packaging material, that is spongy, but it is so thin, that it almost does not seem that way.

To make it, you just need a foot rest, and a cover. Simply look at whatever packing material you get, when you buy stuff.

In my case, I already had a foot rest under my desk, so it was not a big deal. I wanted to use styrofoam to keep my feet from touching the cold surface in winter, but I also wanted a smooth surface, so that it would be easier to wipe it clean. I put the styrofoam on it, and enjoyed it. It got ripped apart easily due to wear and tear, so I added more foam, and this cover.

If any of you want some, then let me know in the comments below. I can send spare material to you for free plus shipping and handling. Do not give me your contact information, until we have discussed it thoroughly.

Should Stores Be Required To Hire Men To Sell Hosiery?

I think that this merits a bit of discussion, especially since Jessica, of Fantasy Stockings, in Vancouver, asked me to. :^) Some of you probably remember my interest in working for Wolford. They declined. Fogal showed enough interest that they offered me a chance to interview for when a job would open up. So, there is enough interest and opportunity for the issue to be discussed.

An important issue to consider is the other kind of clothing that the stores sell. If they sell bras, that could affect whether or not a woman would feel comfortable with guys in the store. Therefore, I will touch on the idea of guys selling bras, and fitting women for bras. As you read about it, think of it as being similar to selling hosiery. Selling hosiery requires less staff-customer intimacy than fitting a bra, but the kind of intimacy is very similar.

Also, bear in mind that although this blog is going to try to convince you of something, it is more about presenting the issues that we have to face, and about trying to give us options.

When you comment, please try to subscribe to the responses, so that you can participate in discussions.

First of all, there is the issue of men's ability to do it. Yes, men are fully capable of doing it. After all, if men can be gynecologists, then there is nothing that will stop us from becoming experts in a female garment. We are not computers, yet we can be computer experts right? The hosiery industry is filled with men who are passable as hosiery sales reps. Of those men in the industry, there are experts who understand the beauty and fit of hosiery. Men have definitely proven themselves.

Secondly, there is also the issue of legalities. Do stores have the legal right to discriminate against men for any reason? I do not know of any. I realize that many laws do favour women, but I do not know of any specific laws that allow stores to decline employment to men, just because they are men. Do you know of any laws? If so, then please fill me in.

Thirdly, there is the issue of current staffing. Before we start telling other stores what to do, let us imagine that you own a store that is currently staffed by only women. 1 of them is a student, who desperately needs the work in this down economy. Another is a great employee, which shows leadership potential. This potential will come in handy when you intend to promote somebody to assistant manager. Then you have your assistant manager, whom you and your other employees love, and you have you, whom you are not able to fire.

So, imagine a rule which says that all stores must have at least 1 man and 1 woman, if there are 2 staff members or contractors. Imagine that your business is running well, with no serious complaints. There is just enough profit to cover all expenses, including salary. That would be pretty stressful, would it not? Who would you fire, when all the customers are already satisfied? The student needs the job, and the other staff members work well. You do not have enough money to hire the guy as a fifth employee. What do you do? I think that I might have to fire the student. I would love to read your responses, even though this situation will probably never happen. I think that it is worth thinking about, because it forces us to think about who we value more.

Fourthly, there is also the issue of how men feel about other men giving the wives a bra fitting. I am sure that we can trust men to be good gynecologists and family doctors, but we do need to sort through this. If women want equality, then they need to sort through this, as well. Otherwise, they will always be feeble, in my mind. After all, why would you defend discrimination against women, and then advocate it against guys? When it comes to bra fitting, nobody is forcing women to be fitted by a guy. Women can go to another store.

Do not get me wrong! I understand that there are religious issues involved. If you think that your religion is right, and that women should not be fitted by guys, then speak out! I understand. I am willing to support it. Bear in mind, that in order to strengthen your opinion, you need to be consistent, in that you should try to separate men from women in as many ways as possible. Should men be allowed to be gynecologists? If not, then what do we do with all the men who are currently gynecologists? What about those who are being trained for it, and have a huge student debt? Should they be required to quit, and then continue with another field of study?Should breast surgeons be only women? Should women doctors only serve women?

1 thing that I like about the Bible is the nuanced phrasing. The Lord Jesus Christ said in the sermon on the mount, that if we look at a woman to lust, then we have already committed adultery. He obviously had no problems with just casually looking at people as we pass them in the streets. He had a problem with lust. So, that means that men could fit women for bras, if they could look at women without lusting.

An interesting aspect of this women-only part of this discussion is that part of it comes from the traditional parts of our society. At 1 time, doctors were only/mostly men. Who would have served the women? Men! If we want to preserve 1 aspect of tradition, then we have to commit to letting go of the other aspect. We cannot expect women to be served by women, while prohibiting them from those jobs.

I think that most traditional people do not really care all that much about the battle of the sexes. I think that for them, they just need to get used to the idea of men fitting women. This will allow women to get used to the idea of men selling hosiery. However, it is a mental hurdle that we men have to knock down and not just overcome.

Lastly, and more importantly, what happens when the company could lose potential customers. Even if the company wants to hire men, should it? Hiring men is not an automatic guarantee of profit.

I am in a very awkward position. I want to advocate for the rights of businesses to discriminate based on sex, so that there are women-only staff, women-only gyms, men-only barber shops, women-only hair salons, men-only golf clubs, etc. However, having women-only without any men-only is garbage. I also advocate for men's rights to sell hosiery and such garments. I think that the best balance is the let the businesses decide based on sex, and customer preferences.

Thanks for coming to this blog post. Please comment below, even if it is just letting us know whether or not you agree. Jessica, of Fantasy Stockings, said that she wants to blog about the topic, so check her blog in the next little while.

Silks Solutions Hosiery Replacement: Energizers Medium Support Tights

Many people probably miss wearing Silks Solutions support hosiery. I wore a pair of Silks Solutions 3. I still have a pair after probably 10 years. I did not wear it very often, as you might guess. I especially loved the way that it stretched. It felt like a real garment, if that makes sense. Unlike other support hosiery, Silks Solutions is extremely soft and comfortable. It is softer than a lot of regular hosiery.

Petite slim women and small guys can still enjoy a style of hosiery similar to Silks Solutions. Energizers Medium Support Tights are opaque and offer a snug support around the legs. It is a great solution.

For $15, you can have a pair of opaque hosiery that is great for ready-to-wear fashion. As long as you are willing to use nail polish on hidden parts, the hosiery can last many days. I think that I have worn mine for over 60 days!

Here is more information from Hosiery Advocate's Boutique.

Energizers Medium Support Tights offers 8-10 mmHg of leg and foot support. It massages and energizes active legs.

Graduated compression throughout the leg helps to increase the blood flow and promote circulation to reduce leg fatigue and swelling.

You might even want to consider wearing this as athletic clothing.

This style provides medium support to meet your every day comfort needs, but definitely provides more support than Silks Solutions.

This style is made with a slimming control top panty.

If you are curious, I made an announcement for it at Hosiery Advocate's Boutique.

Movie: Sky Captain And The World Of Tomorrow

This Friday, you will want to watch Sky Captain And The World Of Tomorrow. It is an old style of science fiction. Gweneth Paltrow exudes a beautiful charm throughout the movie. She wears stockings. It is hard to tell throughout the movie, because of the lighting style, but every now and then, we get a glimpse of beautiful stocking tops.

The movie is available on Netflix. I give it 3/5 stars.

Underwear Over Hosiery Look

Fogal In Vancouver Hired Somebody Recently

Oh, man! That person might have been me. I could have been a man selling hosiery again. The thought of me missing out on the opportunity is sad.

I found out, because I phoned a moment ago.

Halo Woman: Hosiery And Costume At Sporting Events

I have often felt like wearing the Vancouver Canucks colours to sporting events. I even mentioned it a few times. A gal has taken it to the next level by wearing a complete costume: Halo Woman looks great.

She must have had those boots custom made.

1 thing that I like about the dress is that it looks as if it could be any red dress from a store. I love how it appears to be shiny. This helps to keep the cost down. The guy equivalent would probably be a t-shirt and shorts.

The gloves can probably also be bought at a store as well.

Here is her Facebook account.

Want To Create Hosiery With NHL Line

I sent a message to the NHL, asking for more information for team colours. I wanted to know if we would be able to sell hosiery with the team colours. They replied!

Unfortunately, they want to deal with manufacturers that have 5 years of experience in manufacturing and lots of experience in dealing with retailers.

I hope to connect with manufacturers to develop the line of hosiery, but we have to see what happens. We will have to see what opportunities I can come up with.

Movie: Sherlock

This TV series in a modern setting is highly rated on IMDB. I have not seen any of the episodes, other than part of s1e2, but s1e2 has a few nice glimpses of the legs of Watson's date.

If you have Netflix, or another form of access to this show, then I recommend that you watch Sherlock, this Friday.

Woman Wants To Take My Photo

Last blog post, I mentioned that I met with a gal about business. We chatted and got to know each other. She mentioned that she wanted to take my photo, because my Facebook profile photo made me look 50+. I just realized that if she wants to take my photo, after seeing me wearing hosiery, then obviously, she is not repulsed by my appearance.

I find that encouraging.

I [A Man] Wore White Hosiery & Boots

Today, I ran a lot of errands. In addition to the above, I wore black shorts and a white shirt. I felt so awkward due to the colours, but I decided to keep going, as if I were the most awesome guy in the world. Overall, not too bad.

I met up with a girl who wanted to discuss me making smart phone websites. She was not put off by me wearing opaque hosiery and boots. She wanted to hug me. I managed to tell her a bit about why I wear, and what I am trying to achieve. She did not say much about it, but she seemed happy for me. We had that web stuff stuff to discuss, so it was hard to keep focused on that.

I also got paid to perform for a commercial. They never filmed my legs, but it was all okay.

I also checked out another department store branch to see if they had any Silks Waistband-free Tights [style #2395]. They did. I will have to pick some up in the future.

It was a great day, with a tiny bit more to come. Thank you for reading!

Movie: In Time

I really like the outfits that Amanda Seyfried wore in In Time: short skirts/dresses, and sheer hosiery. The protagonist was Justin Timberlake, and I felt that he did a good job, considering the script. There were some things that might have needed improvement, but the movie did a good job of entertaining me.

Lately, I have been watching movies to help me understand how to write better stories. In Time helped out a little.

I highly recommend it for learning purposes and for entertainment. If you want to watch a movie this Friday, then try this movie. I give it 3/5 stars.

I [A Man] Wore Boots, Hosiery, And Shoes

It is quite hot in #SurreyBC. I walked to deliver a parcel today, and decided to try my army boots as part of my outfit. I wore black footless hosiery, and a dark blue golf shirt, with my black army boots. I was sweating quite a bit.

I intended to buy some transit tickets while I was out. Unfortunately, I forgot my credit card, so I had the dreadful task of going back for it, and then coming out again.

I found the outfit to emotionally feel kind of heavy. Obviously, being summer, I should be wearing light coloured clothes and light shoes. I wore the boot laces untied, which made it seem even heavier and clunkier.

The soles felt comfortable on my feet, so I intend to wear them more when just running errands, even in summer. I like the fact that they are black, which helps them to match my outfits better than the white running shoes.

I think that the boots are a great success! And I have another pair as well. I also have a third pair that will work better in winter.

Hooters Tamara Hosiery At Manufacturer's Site

We used to be able to buy Tamara hosiery from here, but she must have closed shop. You could do a search for it, but you will not find it. I recall that she did not like the business, because it did not pay well.

That is kind of sad. Even though I never liked her marketing efforts of running multiple web sites of the same product, I was hoping that it would work out.

The manufacturer did it right. They sell Tamara hosiery online, at 241pantyhose.com, instead of letting somebody else do it. Since they sell their hosiery at half the retail price, you always end up buying 2 for the price of 1. Tamara's Facebook page is not currently linked to at their main website.

Tie Dye Hosiery

I briefly mentioned dyeing hosiery before. Here are a couple of gals who seem to really enjoy it.

I honestly think that there might be a tiny money making opportunity here. Most gals could go to the store and buy cheap hosiery, but I bet that I could lower the price, by selling undyed hosiery, and selling dye also. It would basically be a convenience for people who do not have access to cheap hosiery. I could also sell cheap drink mixes.

Silks Leggings & Silks Ultimate Leggings

I find it remarkable that Google does not recognize Silks as a brand name very easily. Google seems to think that any search for silks or silks leggings is a search for the fabric or the feel of a fabric, or just a spelling mistake.

The rest is a list of search phrases that should help Google to find these specific products that I and my competitors sell.

Men Can Wear Hosiery Visibly In Oxford University

The only drawback is that you will most likely have to crossdress. NDTV and other news sites report that Oxford University's council has dropped any distinction between the sexes by eliminating deleting all references to men and women from the dress code.

David Tennant kilt

To get around this, I advise that you wear a kilt, which could be considered a skirt for the purposes of this dress code. If you have a kilt, then you can wear hosiery. It is that simple.

Kilts, for formal wear, are probably hard to find. If you cannot find 1, then I suggest that you make your own kilt, if you can sew, or pay a seamstress to design and make a kilt for you. I found several pages on the web to help in that area.

a dark coloured kilt

That being said, if you have the choice, then I suggest that you get a dark coloured kilt, as illustrated, or ideally, a black kilt made of polyester. I suggest black, because black can go with more outfits. I feel that the polyester will be wrinkle resistant. I am not an expert on that, though. I found my kilt to be a little heavier, than other sythetic fabrics, which makes it easier for the kilt to bounce a little while you walk. Another benefit of polyester is that it seems to last a lot longer than the rayon kilt that I have.

Have you found polyester to be like that?

Would you wear a kilt and hosiery? Do you do it already? If you have pictures already on the web, then feel free to share them.

Today Is My Birthday

Happy Birthday!

I am tempted to go out and celebrate, but today, I will probably stay home and enjoy myself. I might do some writing, and relax. I might go for a walk around the neighbourhood, but in general, I do not have an interest in going out.

I will wear Energizers Medium Support Tights, since they are my favourite.

Orange Julius logo

I do not feel bad about not going out, since I am on a tight budget. Also, on Tuesday, I celebrated by going to Orange Julius [you could get some coupons by joining their email list]. I had coupons that I accumulated from going frequently to Orange Julius in Pacific Centre, when I worked at Sears. I had a Julius Original, a hot dog, and a Premium Fruit Smoothy. I consider those to be big treats, and I feel very blessed to have had them. We do not have to have them on our exact birthday, do we? :^)

How To Deal With Men Claiming Health Benefits Of Ultra Sheers?

When I think of medical benefits, I am interested in dealing with facts. With medical facts, you really just have to try ideas over a broad range of people. The people chosen for test subjects need to be random, within reason, and they are not supposed to know what they are being exposed to. In other words, some test subjects are to receive placebos and not know it.

So, what do you think when people claim to have health benefits of wearing ultra sheers? I have never heard of support hosiery made of ultra sheer fabric. If it were possible, then would you be supportive [no pun intended] of these men? Would you humour them? I tend to hate humouring people.

I suspect that placebos do not work very well in the long run, and people could end up spending a lot of money and wasting a lot of electricity on solutions that are as useful as superstitions. On the other hand, if their placebos are not that expensive, then maybe it would be okay. Think about that. If you were suffering, then all you really would care about are doing something about it, and then getting results, right? In some cases, if it is just a matter of pain, and if the pain does not really cause problems, then literally anything to make you feel better would be okay, as long as a placebo does not do damage. Therefore the cheapest solution that lets you carry on with your day will be okay.

Energizers Light Support Hosiery

For a while, I wondered how I might promote light support hosiery. Light support hosiery seems like such a bad deal to me, but if they insist, then maybe I should try to reach them and sell it to them. For $8.50, it is not too expensive, compared to an ordinary pair of ultra sheers that have no spandex, and only last a couple of weeks.

Wore Hosiery And Shorts On Tuesday

Many people wonder what it is like for a guy to go out in shorts and #mantyhose. I am a guy, and I wore dark grey shimmery hosiery and black shorts, on Tuesday and Wednesday.

On Tuesday, a good casual female friend asked me about them. I told her that I wore them, because I liked the fabric [or something like that], and because I wanted to start a trend. She seemed impressed by the fact that I wanted to start a trend, and she said, Or you could wear them, just because you like them.. I feel that she has been very supportive of my writing endeavours. Therefore, I am not surprised that she is supportive of my hosiery wearing. I am a bit attracted to her, which makes it even more interesting.

On Tuesday night, I washed them. When I donned them, the next day, they were a little bit damp still.

On Wednesday, I went for coffee with a friend that I met when I was in the army. She always seems supportive of people in general, so I thought that it would be good to catch up with her. She never said anything about them. So, I did not bother bringing it up. I did briefly mention that I had an e-commerce business, but I never went into the details. I probably should have, so that I could have told her more about it. The good thing is that she was still glad to see me.

Has anything new related to hosiery happened to you? I am asking men and women.

Compression Hosiery Prevents Snoring

Toronto University is testing the idea that compression hosiery can reduce snoring. The idea is that the hosiery squeezes the excess fluids out of the muscles, which makes it easier for the body to get rid of the fluid during the day. They theorize that if the body cannot get rid of the fluid by night time, then the fluid flows to the throat, and then the extra swelling makes it easier to snore.

The Daily Mail article mentions that there is a possible link to sleep and appetite. It should be interesting to see what becomes of this. If compression hosiery proves to be a useful tool, then we can expect an increase in all hosiery sales.

I do wonder about support hosiery. Unfortunately, most support hosiery probably does not have enough compression to make a difference. Energizers Medium Support Tights offers 8-10 mmHg of leg and foot support, and to me, that seems like enough compression, but is it? The good thing about it, though, is that support hosiery is so safe that it is safe for almost anybody. Although, I do not encourage you to buy support hosiery in place of compression hosiery, I do encourage you to wear support hosiery in place of bare legs, or when you really do not care about what is on your legs.

Do you wear support hosiery to reduce snoring? Do you know of anybody who does? Have you heard of support hosiery or compression hosiery working?

Movie: Meet Joe Black

This movie involves a big news company. As such, you can expect to see them dress up in nice business attire. You only get to see occasional glimpses of black-hosiery clad legs, but it makes it a nice treat.

If you are looking for a movie to watch this Friday, then I recommend this. I saw it on Netflix.

I gave Meet Joe Black 4/5 stars, because they did a great job of conveying the emotions at a basic level through mostly dialog. A lot of the emotion was conveyed through body language, as well, but the characters seemed so stoic, that it was hard to know the details.

If you want to practise writing emotional stories, then look to this movie for some good examples.

Is He Wearing Pantyhose? #2

I was browsing through Nextag, and I found an image that was interesting. Usually, I show you a guy in these photos, and we need to determine whether or not he is wearing, right? This time [which will probably be the last time], I show you a photo of Mediven Plus compression hosiery, and you tell me if one of the models is a guy.

The description says that it is appropriate for men and women, so I think that it is safe to make an assumption.

This is significant, because if the model is a guy, then this would be 1 of the more mainstream photos of a guy modelling hosiery. I think that that is cool.

Sheers With Double Helix Design

For those of you who have an unquenchable thirst for hosiery with words and pictures, CNET wrote an article about this ThinkGeek hosiery. CNET calls them stockings, but ThinkGeek calls them pantyhose. You can see the comments at the bottom of the page to confirm it.

If you look at the additional photo on ThinkGeek, you'll see some small snags [but no yarns pulled out]. I suspect that they are very delicate. Also the photo shows what appears to be a reinforced toe [as opposed to a shadow toe or run-resistant toe]. No matter what, the thicker toe fabric shows you the colour of the hosiery. I find that the hosiery leg is so sheer, that it is hard to know what the colour is supposed to be.

Another interesting thing that I noticed from the comments on the ThinkGeek page is that women might be inclined to try this hosiery, when otherwise they would not. Perhaps that is the way to win over women and men who are normally resistant to such things.

Do you want to wear this? Do you know of others who want it?

Tried Engergizers Medium Support Hosiery

  • Energizers Medium Support Pantyhose
  • Energizers Medium Support Pantyhose

Men, do you need a bit support for your legs, this summer?

Although these do not seem to offer the same support as the medium support opaques, I find that they are still a delight to wear, and that they offer a pleasantly smooth feel.

I decided to wear these, because I do want some support, but I am feeling a bit of a "squeeze", when it comes to income. I figured that I should get the best support possible, but it is more important to use up the hosiery that I already have.

The medium support opaques feel so good, that I had to summon all my resolve to resist dipping into my inventory to use that. Once I have sold off more of my stock, and until I need more, I will try to use what I already have in my drawers.

Work Place Dress Code

This fall, you might want to dress up a bit more for work.

Even if you cannot read a word, you should still look at the article photo. Then again, you would not know that, if you cannot read. :^/

I can totally see where everybody in the article is coming from. I, myself, do not even dress very well, when it comes to work wear. I usually try to just pass [no wonder I don't get promoted :^O]. However, I think that it is not good to fight the push for a better dress code.

Looking more professional is always the better thing to do. I heard that in a bad economy, customers tend to judge staff more highly, when the staff dress well. Frankly, that Rachel in red looks trust worthy and fantastic.

Remember, try to not think about whether or not the dress code should be according to office policy. Focus more on the subconscious impressions that the clients and customers will get when they first see you.

Do not let me be the only person to give advice here. Tell us the facts in the comments below! Just be sure to let other readers know that I am right and you are wrong. ;^P Seriously, let us know what you think.

Linda's Hosiery Is Going Out Of Business [50%-70% Off Sale]

They are having a clearance sale. It is very sad. I wish that I could help them. If you would like to stock up, then visit them. I could pick stuff up for some of you, if you can wait until July 31.

1055 Georgia St W
Vancouver BC V6E 3P3
(604) 669-2854

It is amazing how things have changed. I can still remember going into her store, and recording some prices on paper. Oh, how naive I was to think that she would let me help! I felt like the lady was politely telling me to get out. Well, she sure does not mind any help now, does she? I cannot really blame her, but obviously, she could have used any help that she could have got.

Hosiery In Wikimedia: Very Young Ballarinas

  • Girl as Sugar Plum Fairy Double
  • Little ballerina

I do not quite understand why young girls want to be ballerinas, but as long as they are not hurting their feet, then I am okay with it. I think that it is like becoming a princess for them: a dream come true. It is good to know that hosiery plays a part of that.

There are more Wikimedia hosiery photos. The link is also in the right column, under Popular Topics. For those of you just joining us, read the explanation of Hosiery In Wikimedia.

Mary's On Wellington No Longer Sells Phantom Silks Hosiery

I called them to confirm whether or not they sell Silks brand hosiery, and the gal on the phone said that they did not.

Used Hosiery: Nylon Creatures

These artistic images are worth looking at. Save up your hosiery, and collect some pins, and then you will be able to make some of your own. If you do not like them looking grotesque, then you could probably make them a little more appealing.

Energizers Medium Support Opaque Tights [style #19284] Lengths

Black size C is a tiny bit longer than black size B. After noticing the slight differences in length of Silks Waistband-Free Tights [style #19295], I decided to give Energizers Medium Support Tights [style #19284] another measure. It turns out that the panty portion and the leg portion of black size C are a tiny bit longer. Read the rest of the blog post to see what I will do with this hosiery.

Silks Waistband-Free Tights [style #19295]

package image

I finally got a chance to carefully examine the Silks Waistband-Free Tights [style #19295] in black of all 3 sizes. It seems that the recent batches of #19295 in black are relatively all correct. I highly recommend that consumers of #19295 in black read the rest of my post for the specifics.

I Want To Buy All Of Your Silks Waistband-Free Tights [style #2395]

The package also calls them waistless tights. I am interested in clearing out all of your stock, whether you are a small business, or big department store. I will gladly pay for shipping.

I am also willing to send my customers to you. I am pretty nice sometimes.

Please contact me at Hosiery Advocate's Boutique contact page. You can also leave a comment below. You can leave an email address or web site address. If you know my email address, then please feel free to email me.

Silks Waistband-Free Tights Style #2395 Probably All Gone

On Saturday, I visited LovelyLegsAndIntimates, to buy her last stock of Silks Waistband-Free Tights [style #2395]. Amazingly, she had a stash of 18 pairs: 12 in black size 2, and 6 in black size 3. Just like the black size 3 pairs that I received, these were so short that they should be sold as black size 1.

I used the black size "3" pairs to fill an already made order.

I will try to sell off the black size "2" pairs to a preferred customer who will get a first choice on whether or not she wants some, because she has made a large order in the past without much fuss, and because she has already requested more for when she needs them.

I think that this is probably the last of style #2395, because at the beginning of July, I ordered more Silks Waistband-Free Tights, hoping to get more of #2395, but it turns out that the manufacturer sent me more of the newer style. So, the last order brought me none, and the order before that brought me none. I also see no web sites on the web offering this. I think that we are completely out, except a few small stores, or department stores.

Hosiery In Wikimedia: Irish Dancing Video

Here is another post to help us get in the mood for the Celtic celebrations.

I think that this performance is a combination of many schools, with each school wearing a different uniform. Good for them.

Unfortunately, I did not find many videos of hosiery.

There are more Wikimedia hosiery photos. The link is also in the right column, under Popular Topics. For those of you just joining us, read the explanation of Hosiery In Wikimedia.

Rate Pantyhose Models At Hot Legs USA

You cannot date these pantyhose models, but you can rate them! They look quite nice, and you can see how your rating compares with the other site visitors.

If I understand correctly, all of these models are modelling Hot Legs USA products in those photos, and they are actual paid models for the company.

After you rate a few, share some of your favourites in the comments below.

Finished Third Pair Of Shorts

During Friday evening, I finished off the third pair, since I was going to do laundry, and since the project was fresh in my mind.

This time around, it was an air force blue pair of shorts. I bought a blue pair of pants to hem into shorts, because I wanted some blue clothing to wear with my blue hosiery. My blue hosiery collection needs more attention.

For those of you just joining us, you can read about my experience with the second pair. The rest of my post tells you more about the sewing aspect.

Finished Another Pair Of Shorts

There was 1 minor mistake, but I was able to recover, by undoing a few stitches. I also had to anchor the relevant threads, but other than that, it worked out okay.

For those of you just joining us: wearing shorts is a fundamental part of wearing hosiery openly; therefore it is crucial that men have nice shorts.

These particular shorts are white and casual. If I take photos with them, then I might try to look like I am wearing a tennis outfit.

The rest of the post is about my experiences in creating these shorts.

Am I A Hosiery Advocate?

I would like to think so.

However, I was editing my e-commerce sites, and I found a blurb of text that really made me wonder. I found that the text was entirely geared towards women. :^D I had to think through it, and really convince myself that men might be interested in it, too.

I guess that we can never really trust ourselves.

Used Hosiery: Blow Dart Fletching

Tampons can be used for survival, so you might want to bring a few when you go camping. A few of the article's suggestions can be achieved with hosiery as well. If you need to make a blow dart, then you can add some hosiery at the rear end of each dart to act as fletching.

Have any of you tried doing that before?

Wore Shorts And Sheers Today

I was quite happy with the results. I wore all black, except for the painted design on the shirt. The overall appearance was not super awesome, but it was adequate.

I went out to participate in a university research project. The person in charge was very attractive. She wore a short skirt, and black sheers. It was fun to get a close up look. For a couple of moments, when I was expected [but not required] to look away, I glanced back, and saw that she was checking out my legs. I wish that I could have felt her hosiery or even asked her out, but I am sure that it would not have been so simple. It was a pleasant experience, though.

Next time, I plan to whistle at her, if she is dressed in hosiery.

Don't Squander Your Health

While I am enjoying the snug feeling of Energizers Medium Support Tights, I sense that this is still news to a lot of people. Long time wearers of any kind of support hosiery or compression hosiery can skip this. The rest of my post tells you all.

Hosiery In Wikimedia: Irish Dancing

Celtic celebrations are starting up all over the world. At least they are starting up in Vancouver. I thought that this would be a great way to get us in the mood.

When I think of Irish Dancing, like River Dance, I automatically think of the beautiful legs that they have and the black opaques.

In the first photo, I noticed that the lovely lass on the right is not blurry like the other 2. I think that the dancer on the left started a routine, and then the middle girl joined in, while the right gal was waiting to join in.

Another Attempt At Dealing With Energizers Medium Support Tights [style #19284]

You might recall that I tried to deal with the hosiery length problem, but did not have much success. The manufacturer is not very flexible.

I came up with a new idea that might help. I plan to go into Sears and open some of their untaped packages, and then compare their black size C pairs with their graphite-grey size C pairs. If the grey pairs are longer, then I will be able to point that out to the manufacturer, and get them to explain why 2 pairs of different colours have different lengths, even though the sizes are supposed to be the same.

This is not over!

Modelled Raisa Hosiery By Fiore

A while ago, I did a photo shoot, and wanted to show you what it looked like. I also wanted to show you what Raisa hosiery [my review], looked like. Here is my chance to hit 2 birds with 1 stone. Enjoy!

I did not just take a photo and post it on the web. The Stylish Fox also used an closeup of my leg for the Raisa Opaque Tights [by Fiore] product page.

This is a real milestone for men in hosiery. Typically, men do not model hosiery. Unisex hosiery and specifically men's hosiery are modelled by men, but even still, those opportunities are rare. Also, there is some hosiery that could be unisex, but it is packaged as women's hosiery, so women model it. Men typically do not get to model for this.

I read about 1 fellow who did this, and he got paid, too, if I recall correctly. He appeared to be so feminine, that he was able to pass for a woman.

In this case, I am not trying to pass for a woman, and I am also trying to not look like a man. In the photo, I am just modeling the side of the leg, for the purposes of giving a realistic closeup look. Since it is not showing a lot of the body, it will not be a turn off for picky women. Also, the side of the leg does not always come across as muscular. At least, it does not for me.

I think that that is where normal guys can contribute to the hosiery industry. There are very few photos that give a close up look at the fabric.

Would any of you men or women model for the purposes of selling hosiery?
