It's Been Too Quiet on the Men's Legwear Front...

What with 114 blog posts on The Nylon Gene in 2009, I certainly need to pick up the pace here in January 2010 if I'm going to match or exceed that number this year. There have been a lot of activities that have competed for attention with my blog, but I'll try my best to rectify that. ... and yes, there are still things to right about in the men's legwear arena. Chan Kraemer has revamped his e-MANcipate site, and I'll be writing a review of that forthwith. Likewise, there's certainly something to be said about how all of this deep freeze that much of the U.S. is enduring right now is great weather to add a pair of opaque tights beneath one's trousers before heading out to work. Am I right...?

So anyways, Happy 2010 to all the loyal Nylon Gene readers. I'll make sure to do my best to keep the new decade an interesting one for the guys wearing hose. [Should auld acquaintance be forgot... ]


  1. Steve, about your question regarding opaque tights (at the end of the posting), you're certainly right... I have a body which is highly susceptible to cold weather (I get cold quite easily) so there's no-way I can survive this "deep freeze" weather with no tights underneath my trousers. Thank you activskin voor A866.

    Regards, Alejandro

  2. Why not just wear the hose.It hasn't gotten much above 25 here in NH. but I find it refreshing just being out in shorts and hose.

  3. I just started wearing tights under dress pants for warmth. I really like them, but I told my wife and she went off the deep end. Back to cold legs again ...

  4. Nice to see you back. Hope to read more through 2010. I'll see you online.

  5. It's unfortunate that wives sometimes get so worked up over their guy wearing legwear (see my post, "Ladies, Does Your Guy Wear Pantyhose? Maybe He Should" or article by the same title). A large percentage of women have no problem whatsoever with the concept of men wearing sheer hosiery or opaque tights--IN THEORY. The difficulty comes when it's THEIR guy who's wearing the legwear.

    To be honest, my very own Mrs. Nylon Gene struggled with much the same difficulty before I became the National Poster Boy for men's legwear. She was afraid her friends would think strange thoughts about her husband, or it might cause us to lose friends, etc. In reality, none of the above occurred as I became more publicly known for being an advocate of men's legwear. If anything, people complimented me for having the conviction to stand up for it and be counted.

    If you think it would be helpful, have your wife email me. Maybe I can help her see that the stigma she fears is largely imagined.

  6. BTW, everyone. I apologize for the delay in replies to comments. While I've been able to approve your comments, my Internet Security Suite was preventing me from posting any replies from myself. Now I've solved the problem.
