Funeral After Thoughts And Hosiery And Men

So, I decided to follow Andreas's advice, and not wear shorts and hosiery to the funeral / celebration service. I was actually going to wear jeans, because I thought that we were supposed to dress casual and relaxed, but I saw my relatives wearing a suit, a sports coat, dress pants, and dresses. I went and changed into a dress shirt, pair of dress pants, and a sports coat.

When we arrived, I saw quite a few people wear jeans. I saw many women wear dresses, skirts, and hosiery.

I found the whole situation challenging, because I believe that we should be breaking down these norms, but maybe I am wrong. All norms do not come about just because the majority of people decide that this is how things are going to be. Some of the norms might come about because of that, but a lot of them do come about because we forms opinions in other situations.

We can see this in the way that we perceive turbans and work helmets. Those things have been around for a while, but they will probably never be in the mainstream for formal wear for the majority of western men.

An anonymous reader also chimed in after the funeral, and I felt that he [or she?] made a good point. While reading the response, I was reminded of an acquaintance that dresses really strange, and yet has a difficult time understanding why people look at him. Curiosity is a very natural response to things that are not normal. He should be grateful for the times, when is NOT persecuted. In fact, I do not think that he was ever persecuted for the clothing that he wore.

I look forward to the day, when all men are required to wear hosiery all the time, and when we are encouraged to wear semi-opaques or day-sheer hosiery. After that, I will realize how expensive it will be, and then do a face-palm. ;^P

Is It Safe To Wear Shorts And Hosiery To A Funeral Or Celebration Service?

My aunt died on Saturday morning. She was a respectable person, because she had people skills. I believe that she was a born again Christian, so I expect her to go to heaven.

I was wondering about what I could wear.

I thought that my favourite black shorts, and a pair of black opaques would be nice. What do you guys think about that? Is it formal enough to wear to a funeral? Have we made that progress yet? Please comment below.

It turns out that the family requested that we not wear black. Maybe I'll wear my beige coloured shorts with brown opaques, and brown Doc Martens. What do you think?

I think that avoiding sheers would be best, especially since my leg hair is a little noticable.

Any suggestions? Have seen shorts in a funeral? What about at a celebration service?

Fusion Fibre Is Amazing

I cringed a bit, when I first watched these beautiful legs demonstrate the power of fusion fibre: they do not run. This will make it easier for us to convert hosiery into footless hosiery. Sellers will probably less and less pairs as time goes on.

Beauty

1 kind of photo that I like has the main focus on something different than this blog's focus, but still has what we want to see.

This photo from an article from The Daily Mail demonstrates elegance, and success.

woman wearing a nice outfit with a skirt and pantyhose

There is no provocative pose. It is not about seduction. She has a look that is desirable, but is attainable by everybody with the right budget. A lot of the aspects of the outfit can be attained by even old stuff that are all ready in our closets.

You and I do not need to mention what to look at, because we have a common interest. We can talk around our main interest, and still know what is nice.

What do you think?

You can get this look by wearing bright coloured clothing, and then adding to your legs a grey or a skin tone that is darker than your own.

For Sale: Silks Desire Legging With Lace Trim [Style #19906]

[This style is for sale at my Phantom Hosiery web site.]

This garment is designed to have lace go from the middle of the lower leg to the ankle, for a nice feminine touch. Most customers, if not all, will like the non-lace portions, because they feel very smooth to the touch.

The manufacturer did say, "leggings", on the package, but customers should be aware that the garment is best thought of as footless hosiery. This means that it is even more important to cover the hip area with a long shirt or a skirt or a pair of shorts. Sometimes, footless hosiery has a gusset or run guard, whereas genuine leggings tend to have fewer visible features. On a more positive note, this garment has no inseam running down the legs, which make them nicer to look at.

Although the size chart below does mention 4′10″, shorter people should be aware that Silks Desire tends to be longer than might be assumed. Shorter customers would be wise to send a message, stating your inseam length, before purchasing, so that we can help you to figure out whether it will actually fit.

To figure out whether or not this style will fit you, measure your inseam, and then subtract the distance from your heel to where you want the hosiery to stop. For most people, the middle of the ankle is about 6″ above the bottom of the foot, so if you have a 34″ inseam, then you can wear unstretched hosiery that is 28″, give or take a few inches, since the garment stretches.

Silks Desire is a Canadian brand of hosiery that was inspired by European hosiery to bring a touch of class to our beloved country.

TIL: Pantyhose Was A Main Feature Of The Music Video "These Boots Are Made For Walkin" By Nancy Sinatra

I never imagined that this song would show so much leg, let alone hosiery clad leg. I wish that I could just run my hands over it all. I think that it is easy to miss that aspect of the video, because most of people my age or younger probably have not seen the video and because the video never mentions hosiery at all.

Cool.

Gals, please dress like that for your guys.
