He Makes Stockings Look Masculine - Eugene .T S. Wong

Who is Eugene T S Wong?

If you haven't made Eugene's acquaintance before, I recommend that you take a look at the first article concerning his ground breaking fashion sense, which can be found here.

A Man Who Wears Hosiery

This article features a full length interview with Eugene, and multiple pictures of him modeling hosiery styles for men. It's an article which has largely been overlooked because it was one of the earlier pieces I wrote on the topic of men wearing womens clothing, but it truly is a gem.

Are you a man who loves the feeling of stockings or pantyhose against your skin? Do you joyously wear hosiery in private only to have to take it off when you leave your home? Have you ever wondered how to openly wear women's stockings and pantyhose in the workplace without being sniggered at by the receptionist and being sent home in shame to change? One man has tackled this fashion problem and emerged triumphant and it is my pleasure to share his not so secrets with you.

Hosiery advocate Eugene Wong makes his second appearance in this series of articles with a great business outfit incorporating sheer green stockings. This should appeal to those of you who like lingerie and other items of women's clothing, but want to wear them in a masculine sort of way. Eugene has been advocating hosiery for men for many years now and every now and then he puts out great photosets to illustrate how men can wear hosiery and look not only masculine, but businesslike when they do it.

If Eugene had his way, all men would wear hosiery. I've pointed out that having all men wear hosiery would be just as unjust as not allowing men to wear hosiery at all, but Eugene remains unmoved, such is his passion for stockings and pantyhose.

This outfit is, as I have mentioned, his latest creation. A dark suit / blazer jacket, white button down shirt and an elegant tie are matched with shorts and deep green sheer stockings. It's all business, with an undeniable touch of hosiery. The deep green color both contrasts with the charcoal of the suit and shorts and reflects masculine overtones.

If a blazer and shorts reminds you too much of a public school boy, variations on this theme are quite possible. Eugene's shorts could quite easily be subbed out for a kilt or other form of skirt and the outfit would work just as well. Shorts or a less than knee length skirt work well in the summer, and a kilt, longer skirt, or longer shorts are more appropriate winter attire.

If you visit Eugene's Flickr page, you can find all his sets and perhaps a little inspiration for your own every day lingerie wearing.

Stockings for men was popular back in days of Napoleon, and to not have any was considered low class I think!hmmmm I wonder if it would catch on in this hi tech age we live in,and which pat of the world is most likely to take the bait?May be Japan or Europe,but most certainly not the USA I'm sure!

Amusing hub Hope Alexander,it was well worh the read!:D

Actually there are already hundreds, if not thousands of men who wear stockings and hosiery in the USA. I don't know that it will go 'critical mass' this year, but there are already specialist men's hosiery lines, so it is really just a matter of time.

I think Eugene is a great is a great ambassador for mens hosiery.

Waren, as strange as it sounds, it's extremely popular especially in North America and is being sold in huge volumes in America and Europe as well as strong sales in Australia and New Zealand.

How do i know this?. I'm both a personal friend of Steve Katz owner of www.comfilon.com, I'm a member of the LAUF legwear forum on Delphi and a pantyhose wearer myself.

If we were not surrounded by simple minded individuals, we could all be free to wear pantyhose with shorts or even a skirt. Fashion freedom should not be just restricted to women. Men should be free to indulge as well. The look may not be for everyone and that's cool. Many women can't pull off the look they are sometimes going for but they have the freedom to do so. It's time we also had it without fear of confrontation by some idiot sporting a mullet and flanny.

I'm looking forward to having an extra couple of weeks of pantyhose wearing in NZ before i;m out of them and just stuck in trousers all summer. I'd prefer a skirt you know.

I agree with Pauls_boat. The idea is great, but the color should be black or navy, or even white. Green only looks good with...green.

I had to wonder, too, why the color green? You know, with legs like that, no wonder he wants to wear stockings. Maybe guys could segway into acceptance into regular society by wearing leggings?

Well, apparently guys, I got it wrong and the suit is actually dark green, so the stockings do actually color match it. However, if it looks that dark under normal outside light then the color does seem quite dark.

Hi all.

1 reason that I chose green for the suit and hosiery is because I want to try to show what it's like to wear the different colours.

Another reason is that I am in the army, and we get points to spend on things like this suit. I used my points, so that I could get the suit for free. I would prefer to have a black suit, that is more form fitting, and I assume that military suits are more form fitting. Also, I didn't want spend a lot of time searching for the perfect suit that I'd only wear a few times.

Hope has written 3 articles on me. This is the third. Here are the links to the other 2. The second article shows me wearing grey hosiery, black shorts, and a grey sweater.
