Hello and welcome. I'm Steve Newman and this is The Nylon Gene. Nylon Gene is a blog intended to be the clearinghouse for information pertaining to the emerging trend of men's legwear. I am the Marketing Director for ActivSkin Legwear for Men, and as such I am playing the role of hosiery evangelist in that it is my mission to present information that's useful for media contacts (reporters, writers, TV/radio producers, etc.) when working on articles or shows relating to men's legwear. There has been a lot of misinformation out there, often because there have been too few knowledgeable sources who are willing to stand up and be counted among those who wear sheer hosiery or tights.
The Nylon Gene is also for those who have recently learned of the existence of a market for men's legwear and want to know more about it. There are some good sources of information out there, and some that are not so good. Our goal is to become the most reliable and objective source of news and information for those who are newly acquainted with this trend as well as those who are longtime customers of ours or other providers.
We don't hide the fact that this blog is supported by ActivSkin, as we believe that 'a rising tide raises all boats' and that advancing the overall trends in men's legwear will also contribute to the continued success of ActivSkin. We hope that this blog will also provide our customers a forum in which to share their opinions of our products and offer suggestions for improvements. Personally, I look forward to reading your comments and getting acquainted with all of you who share an interest in the future of legwear.
