Went Out Wearing Black Mostly Opaques Today

It was good change of pace, sicne I normally wear completely opaque footless hosiery.

I wore army boots, so nobody could tell that I was wearing footed hosiery, but the mostly opaque fabric still caught a bit of attention. I noticed people passing by me, looking at my legs. 1 woman told her friend, and her 2 friends looked back. At least, I think that they were looking at me.

I think that what made it more noticable was the rainy weather. Not many guys are going to wear shorts in rainy weather, right? Therefore, when they see me wearing shorts, they will also notice that I am wearing hosiery.

I wore mostly opaques, because I had epilated my legs a couple of days ago, this pair was almost ready to be washed. I epilated, because I expected to model the Fangi Pangi hosiery that arrived earlier in the week.

I really missed wearing sheer hosiery and mostly opaque hosiery. I do not feel like I am really advocating hosiery, unless it is sheer or mostly opaque. What about you guys?

Andreas Lucius Loh: Thoughts About Fashion

This week's portion of the interview is much longer than the other portions. I felt that he knew more about fashion than most, or at least had more opinions on it, so I felt free to ask him more. If you have opinions, then please feel free to comment below. For those of you just joining us, read the other interview questions by clicking on a link below.

Read the rest of my post for the great answers.

During Winter, Match Black Opaque Hosiery With Bright Summer Clothing

This video does a great job of demonstrating how black opaques can be used with brighter colours in winter. It is mostly for women, but the same principles apply to men.

We Need A Hosiery Meme


I have been looking into some of the best marketing campaigns, and I can see that we have been very weak about coming up with techniques for spreading the word about hosiery. None of our efforts scream, "CHECK THIS OUT!!!". They all seem to say, "Wear hosiery, okay?". That seems boring.

What do you think we need? A lot of great memes have started from Reddit. People upload photos, and are encouraged to make jokes. Maybe we can upload a photo of guy wearing hosiery, to see what they say. Share some of your ideas below.

Making Progress With Hosiery Gift Site

Remember me trying to come up with a way to send you free hosiery? I am pleased to say that I am making great progress. I managed to get a dummy page up, with a fake name, fake photo, and fake products. This means that the site will work just fine with real people, real photos, and real products.

It took me a while to test out different sites to see what they are capable of. I wanted to try the services of the e-commerce site that I normally use, but I want to add lots of people to model the hosiery, and this would mean that I would need to pay for that, or that I would need to do things in an user unfriendly way.

If this is your first time reading about this, then let me tell you that if you are willing to model free hosiery for your fans, then comment below. I am currently looking for volunteer models.

The site is coming along. Thank you for reading!

What Would You Do To Earn A Pair Of Hosiery?

I plan to start a loyalty/rewards program, so that people can earn a pair of hosiery from my store. My biggest problem is finding out what people can offer me to earn a pair.

The best thing to reward is probably word of mouth, but I am not confident that my products are hot enough for people to want to buy them after hearing about it via word of mouth.

Also, I would like to reward behaviour that is more interesting, or products that I can use. This way, I can exchange my products for other things.

Are there any things that you wish that you could do to earn points for something? Make me an offer!

LIfe In The Boutique: A Returning Customer

I am pleased that a customer came back for more.

This time, she chose a different colour. This particular colour-size combination was in stock, and it was not popular, so I feel that she was doing me a favour.

I felt a bit of relief, when I discovered that I could give her a reduced shipping rate.

Hosiery In Foreign Film

I found a movie trailer for a foreign film. I felt that the hosiery at the end was quite nice. The rest of my post has the embedded video.

I Met A Is She Wearing Pantyhose Gal

When I arrived on set on Thursday, I needed to wait to line up. One of the gals that I showed you in Is She Wearing Pantyhose was there. I honestly felt like I was in a dream. It was as if I met a movie star.

I could not help myself. I asked her if she was such-n-such. It was an embarrassing moment, because I suddenly realized that I had to explain how I would know her. It was cool, in that I was able to explain without mentioning hosiery. I just mentioned that I saw her when I went to the site that we both use, and that I blogged about her clothing.

I believe that I should have kept it general and vague, so that I would not creep her out. I felt bad about hiding information, but I think that she would not be ready to hear about it just yet.

I can tell you that she is just as beautiful as her photo. She is shorter, and appears to be younger. Her newer photos look younger than what I originally showed you, and she appears that way in real life.

A-a-a-ah. I guess dreams do come true.

Thank you for reading!

Have A New Customer

Before I showed up on set on Thursday, I visited a particular club, which had an interest in buying hosiery. The owner is happy to buy my products. I will give the club a discount, so that it can still sell them at the full retail price and make a profit.

I found the club, a while ago, when I did a web search for hosiery and Vancouver. It turns out a fetish club mentioned a special men in pantyhose event.

It turns out that they all ready have a good supply of cheap pantyhose, and it has not been selling well, so the owner is hesitant to buy more. The owner wants to buy lace stockings, so I will supply that.

The good thing about this customer is that the business relationship is very informal. I can deliver stuff at a time that is convenient for me. This allows me to schedule more than 1 errand in the same transit trip. It also allows me to use that hosiery to meet the minimum order requirements of the manufacturer.

By the way, the customer is also looking for false eye lashes. If you or anybody that you care about would like to sell them, then let me know.

Tried To Wear Hosiery For A Filming

On Thursday, I had to appear on set, and the scene was a warm Hong Kong scene, so I wore footless opaques with my black shorts. I was not allowed to wear it, but at least I got to show the world what guys in hosiery and shorts looked like.

A couple of times, people asked me if I was a cyclist for the film, and I said that I was not. It turns out that I was. What a shame! I might have been able to wear it, after all. Maybe next time.

Honestly, though, it would not have made a difference for the film, because nobody would have seen it, since it was so crowded.

I Saw A Man In Shorts And Footed Hosiery

Yesterday, I went to Costco, and saw a guy wear basketball shorts, and what appeared to be athletic tights. I did not think much of it, at first. Then I took a closer look at the leg. It turned out that there were seams on both sides of each leg. Also, the hosiery was footed! I was very surprised. I never thought to point it out to the people that I was with. There were no white socks or anything.

After seeing no socks, I thought that he might have pulled the cuff of footless hosiery down past his heel, but I am sceptical about that. After all, guys typically do not do that, right?

Maybe calling it hosiery would be premature, but it does seem to be the case.

Do you guys think that any snug garment with feet should be considered hosiery?

Roxanne Pallet In White Mostly Opaques Acts In Rocky Horror

Hello, fellow advocates! I think that there is something special about white mostly opaque hosiery. Do you? To me, it conveys a certain innocence and purity [I would love to hear what fashion experts have to say about this]. That is why I love this photo of her.

Fern Britton In Opaques And A Short Skirt

This is a slow news day. Look at Fern Britton.

Fern Britton In Opaques And A Short Skirt

If you like what you see, then read the article for more photos. I am amazed at how a short skirt can look good on older women. I think that it is because of her figure. The opaque hosiery also adds modesty to the outfit, which probably helps.

I Sell Hosiery [Part 3]: I Want To Sell NHL Colours

Another idea that I had was to sell hosiery that could branded with the NHL logo or other pro sports organizations. It would take a huge undertaking to get to that point. In the mean time, I will have to find ways to encourage people to buy other brands.

I think that we will have to show various outfits that incorporate opaque colourful hosiery. I think that wearing colourful outfits will be the only way that people will freely wear for the first time without much thought opaque hosiery. As it is, they already wear playful colourful outfits to sporting events.

Do do wear colourful outfits to sporting events?

My Find Me Page

The other day, I mentioned that most of my hosiery sales are going to come from the sales of Silks hosiery at Hosiery Advocate's Boutique. I forgot to mention that you should not need to bookmark it. It is recorded on the Find Me which is listed at the top.
