Request...Tights Drawers

I think tights organization is one of the most overlooked thing about tights. Just this week two pairs of my tights (one brand new) ripped from being on the floor of my bedroom for who knows how long. This is odd because I am usually pretty good about organizing all my tights. I have a dedicated drawer where I store them all. All of them are rolled up with a rubberband around them with a label on them specifying what brand they are. I've heard from alot of people who organize in different ways. I've heard everything from throwing them in a drawer, to baskets and even one person tying them in a knot! I think we can all agree that tights are the most delicate article of clothing that we all own ad they should be treated that way.

 I would love to do a post that shows a variety of ways that everyone organizes and stores their tights. If you would like to help out please take a few pictures of where you store your tights and how you store your tights. Once I get a good number I will post them all on my blog! This will be sure to help everyone who needs a little organization in their tights drawers!

Please email all photos to Please name the email: Tights Drawer Pictures

Hope to see them soon!

A Call To All Who Sell Tights…

Being on this platform and read by many people I wish to take advantage of it starting now.

I've posted a few posts since the beginning of this blog about the idea of men wearing tights. It has remained dormant on this site for a while and I feel its time to awake it. I feel I have a louder voice than I have ever had before and today I will exercise it.

One thing I feel that could help the men's tights revolution is not just by men wearing tights and society accepting. Both will take a while. What I think we need is a sponsor, a corporate supporter. A company that sells men's tights and that accepts it. I have thought of some business bullet points that I think could be helpful.

-Market them…To companies that already manufacture tights, you know how to make them. Now, just either modify them to fix a mans body. Or better yet, market them as Unisex. Most men that wear tights have to buy woman's tights. Some men buy men's tights, however their isn't a large variety. I actually prefer woman's tights. Just say they are for both men and woman. Most of the places I buy tights online from you have to go to the woman's section, already there I feel like I'm a crossdresser, and go through the list of dresses, skirts, heels and then at the very bottom there is a part that says hosiery.

-More profit…If anything, you will benefit more financially in the long run. It won't cause any loss of profit. Any company that extends its reach and product line is on the guaranteed way to gain more profit. Simple as that. If you make your product for more people, more people will want to purchase it. In return you will see more profit. Its Business 101 here.

-Accept it Publicly…Make a big banner on your site saying "We Sell Mens Tights" or "We Accept Mens Tights" something catchy. What it is a welcome sign saying, "Guys, you can buy your tights here and we love it! We don't care if your a man or not!"

-Be The First…Be the first to follow this trend. If your company sells/makes tights. Be the first to say they are for men. This will have others to follow and you will have been the originator of it!

A Message to We Love Colors…

I think We Love Colors is the best tights company in America currently. I also think We Love Colors is quite possibly one of the best companies in America currently. They actually happen to sell mens tights, but they aren't nearly as good as the woman's microfiber tights. They sell a men's performance tights, but its too tight and shiny. Not something you'd wear in public. They also sell a men's nylon tights. Which to say the least, is not comfortable at all. Sorry to say and I hate to be frank but its true. Why not market your microfiber tights as a men's tights as well? I know you get a lot of men buying it, but put it in the mens section and post men wearing it in clothes and not half naked! That would be great!

You've got the men's section right under the children's section which makes us feel like we can't compete. As primarily a tights company, you have one of the biggest voices in the tights community. If you were to start selling men's tights as you do woman's, many will follow! And plus you make tights so well, a lot of guys I know would buy them. Its just the woman's are sooo much cheaper than your men's performance tights and so much better quality! 40 bucks as opposed to 12? Pretty big difference!

I guess all I'm saying is market men's tights as much as you do woman's tights and show that you accept them more. I know you know that men buy your woman's tights. You are always giving away your microfiber tights to all these girl bloggers. Start giving them away to guys too! It's going to take alot of free tights to giveaway to the regular guy to get him to start wearing tights let alone buying from YOU!

If you want more feedback from a guy who wears tights or need someone to try them out, I'm here if you need me! I just hope you see this and not ban me from buying your tights! I love them so much!

This makes me what to buy some new tights! We Love Colors of course, now what color? Comment below!

I Want To Start A Topic...

I want to start of topic. I think I'll do this time to time. Polls are nice though but they only reveal statistics, not real opinions or feedback. As many of you know this is a tights blog. But one thing it also is is a platform of development and support for mens tights. If you didn't know yet, alot of men actually wear tights. But this all happens in their own privacy. We still aren't ready, actually I should say it differently, society is not ready for men to wear tights in public. It's still thought of as odd and strange and any man who wears tights, girls clothes, is gay, crossdresser or just plain weird! That is all not true. We want equality! Doesn't everybody want that? I want to be able to wear whatever I like and feel comfortable. Not only feel comfortable in what I choose to wear, but also comfortable in my skin wearing it. I feel like I'd be pointed and laughed at or see people snicker or worse get taken a picture of and posted online for all to see.

The reason for this post is I have gone my whole life with my opinion and thoughts on mens tights. I feel very strongly on the issue. I know it sounds silly but I do care about it. Its not really just mens tights, but equality. Equality is what I care for more than anything in this world.

What I'd like to see is a peaceful discussion and comments related to the matter of mens tights. I mainly want to hear from the girls, but guys are still more than welcome!

-What do you think about mens tights?

-What do you think about men wearing tights?

-Would you and the people you know accept it?

-Do you think society is ready for it?

 -What if someone you know, boyfriend, male friend or father choose to wear tights?

These are all just questions I have thought of before. It would really mean alot for you all to comment on this.

Urban Outfitters....REVIEW

Over the past few years I have stumbled into Urban Outfitters and cautiously walked up the their tights section and glanced over at all the wonderful colors and selection. One good thing about them is they have a very wide array of tights. Lace, opaque, knit, sheer, they have it all. If you sometimes think that quantity lacks quality, your wrong on the one. The tights I've tried from Urban are the opaque ones, knit, and a few other ones. I'll start with the opaques.

First of all, Urban's tights are 2 for $20 dollars, can't go to wrong there. They actually are really good tights. Very comfy and durability, not itchy at all. And when they advertise them as opaque, boy are they opaque! They are incredibly thick for such a cheap price its insane. They aren't too thick to wear outside on a hot day but absolutely perfect for winter. The opaque ones I have are grey and black, both are probably 2 of my favorite tights. They grey is one of the best pairs of grey tights I could find. And the black is just as good too, after many washes it never looses any color or fades.

The other pair of tights I tried are their Bamboo tights. Now, anyone who hasn't heard of the idea of a Bamboo tight is clearly missing out. Yes, they are made out of bamboo, but we aren't talking like wood hear. They are right out there with being the most comfortable tights for being a sweater tight like tight. I have 2 pairs of bamboo tights and this one takes the cake. Its incredibly comfy and cozy, perfect for a cold day or for around the house.

Ofcourse, Urban Outfitters sizes their tights in the sometimes common Small/Medium and Medium/Large. I actually prefer this sizing chart. Noting is worse than the 1,2,3 sizes or as we all know the "One Size." I would always recommend people to go a size up with tights. This allows more fabric to be available and more opaqueness. If you get a smaller size than normal the fabric is being stretched over your leg creating a semi sheer appearance and why not just wear pantyhose in that case. ICK!

To speak about durability I'd have to tell you that these are the only tights where I have gotten a run (ladder) in them. I'm very good with never getting rips in mine but these after time seemed to develop a long ladder in them. Given I had had them for months so its probably ok. I can assure under the right conditions, meaning not drying, proper care and such these should last you a while. I wouldn't be crazy enough to say they are better or even come close to We Love Colors tights but they in the top 3 I'd say pretty close to We Love.

Comfort: 4
Opaqueness: 5
Durability: 3
Price: 5
