Return of an old Favourite - and a New Model!

380 Mk2
380 Mk2
We are pleased to announce the return of the popular 380 unisex 'cycle-short' type briefs known as 'spats', now in Mk 2 form. We have re-worked the design so it now come in three sizes, M, L & XL, rather than the original 'one size' format. Colour Black. Still made from the same super-comfortable nylon/Elastane fabric, which is thinner than that used for actual cycle-shorts, as these are intended as underwear - they would be too revealing if worn as a top layer!

Also new, are the Model 385 'Micro-spats' shorts. These are similar to the 380, but shorter in the leg. They are also available in Black, and three sizes, M, L & XL, as with the 380's.

Priced at a very reasonable £6.99 per pair for the 385, and £7.99 for the 380 Mk 2. Both are in stock now!

As promised, we are continuing to add more products to our popular line of anime/manga/cosplay related items. This month, we are pleased to add our own version of the ever-popular, classic 'Suku-mizu', regulation one piece high-school swimsuit, complete with iconic 'skirt', as seen in many anime and manga series over the years. Although aimed at the cosplay user, it is still a fully-functional and perfectly usable swimsuit. Made from soft, comfortable polyester/Lycra fabric, it is available in colour Navy, and four sizes; S, M, L & XL. The extremely stretchy nature of the fabric means they will cover a large range of wearers, but we suggest the smaller sizes as suitable for female wearers, and the larger sizes for males. They retail at £21.99GBP each.

More new products!

1040 loose socks + 940 'buruma'
Loose Socks
As promised, we are continuing to add more products to our popular line of anime/manga/cosplay related items. This month, we are pleased to add our own version of the ever-popular 'Loose Socks', as seen in many anime and manga series over the years, most recently worn by cute heroine Misaka Mikoto of 'A Certain Scientific Railgun' fame. The Model 1040 Loose Socks are 100% cotton socks, but much longer than usual at about 90cm long, and designed to be worn bunched up around the lower leg and ankles. First appearing in the early 1990's, they continue to play a large part in the world of Cosplay. Plus, of course, they are a perfectly serviceable pair of thick, warm socks, made from high-quality fabric, which should last a very long time. They come in one size, which should suit the majority of wearers, either male or female, and retail at £9.99GBP per pair.

They are heavier, more opaque and shiny than the 0178's introduced last month, plus they are more durable due to the wrapped Lycra fabric used.

New Products for 2015!

940 Red
940 Navy

Here at First4Legwear, we are constantly on the lookout for new and interesting products to add to our range of  legwear and hosiery, plus related items. We have a number of new items in our range for 2015; following the success of our range of Japanese 'anime' related products, introduced last year, we have added more products to that range.
940 Navy
940 Red with 1010 White 'nisokkusu'
First is our own 'unisex' version of the ever-popular Japanese school sports shorts known as 'buruma' ('bloomers'), the 940's are a faithful replica of the original Japanese design, but tweaked to allow for wear by either men or women. Available in four sizes, S, M, L & XL, and three colours, Red, Navy and Burgundy, they have the ubiquitous double white stripe down each side, and even have a little pocket inside the waistband, for keys or change! Selling for a very reasonable £9.99 per pair, they are in stock now, and already proving popular with our customers. Regarding sizing, we would suggest the smaller sizes as being more suitable for ladies, and the larger for men, but the stretchy nature of the 100% cotton interlock fabric will allow for some leeway; also, it will depend on how tight-fitting you want them to be. They are not actually intended to be very close-fitting, but in many anime series they are portrayed as being pretty tight, but that is probably to show off the wearers' behind to best advantage, rather than any sense of practicality! They look especially cute with a pair of our 1010 'nisokkusu' - see pictures here! If you are a fan of Japanese anime or manga, get yours today!

Next up is the new 1050 'nisokkusu' over-the-knee three-stripe sock, in black with white stripes. Made from 100% cotton, they come in one size which will fit most. Famously seen in a number of recent anime series, these are the genuine Japanese item, not a replica; they can be seen on a number of Japanese retail sites for somewhat more than the value-for-money £5.49 per pair we are asking for them. A fun item, suitable for male and female anime fans, they are in stock now; get yours today!

We will be adding some more anime/manga/cosplay items in the very near future; watch this space!

Lastly are the new 0178 STW dance tights from Doyeah. Available in one size, to fit up to 6ft height and 44" hips, they come in Beige (skin-tone) and Black. They are 50 denier, comprising 82% nylon/18% Lycra, and are sheer-to-waist, aside from a little reinforced area around the single centre seam and toes. They are in stock now at £6.99 per pair.

New Anime/Manga Item! 'Shima-Pantsu'!

The new Model 355 'Shimapan' briefs from First4Legwear are a classic 'panty' design, but based on the famous 'Shimapan' (short for 'shima-pantsu'; Japanese for 'striped panties') which are known and loved by fans ('otaku') of Japanese 'anime' and 'manga' worldwide, as they are famously worn by many 'anime' heroines. They are a classic 'brief' style, and come in the popular blue/white horizontal stripe. Available in sizes S, M, L, XL and XXL, they are made from soft, stretchy 95% cotton/ 5% Lycra, and are incredibly comfortable.
So whether you are a fan of Japanese animations or comics, or into 'cosplay', or just like striped briefs, these are the ones for you!

We are the only UK/European supplier of the famous 'Shima-pantsu'; why pay to ship them from Japan or the US when you can get them from us?!

They sell for a very reasonable £6.99 per pair. Get yours now!

New Products, and a new range!

Here at First4Legwear, we are always on the lookout for new and interesting products, and this month we have several, plus a new category we have not entered before; Anime, Manga and Cosplay-related items. We already have a couple of items which broadly fall into this category, but in future, we will be adding products specifically to this category.

The first such product is the new F4L 1020 striped opaque thigh-highs, known as 'shima-socksu' (Japanese for 'striped socks'), which are seen in many 'anime'  shows and manga comics. They come in one size, which will fit heights of up to 6ft (185cms), and three colourways; Blue/Black, Red/Black and Purple/Black. They are made from comfortable fabric comprising 97% nylon and 3% elastane, and seem to be quite durable. They are a 'stay-up' design, and as such do not require suspenders.

They are in stock now, and retail for a value-for-money £3.99 per pair.

Next is the new Doyeah 0918 10-denier sheer stockings. These are the first such product from Doyeah. They are made from the same shiny 10-denier, 86% nylon/14% elastane fabric as many of the Doyeah sheer tights, and our own model 440 STW's. They come in one size, which is suitable for heights of up to 6ft, and colours Beige, Tan, Bronze, Dark Nude, White, Grey and Black. They retail for a reasonable £5.99 per pair.

New products for September!

The new 612 unisex leggings are a fabulous product; they are made in one piece, so have no centre seam, just one on the inside leg, and they have a diamond-shaped gusset at the crotch. The fabric (90% nylon, 10% elastane), which has a slight 'sheen' to it, is very stretchy, and the product will easily fit wearers of 6ft height (185cm), 36" waist (92cm) and 33" inside leg. They are superbly comfortable for casual or 'sporty' wear, and come in a good range of colours.

An excellent product, and a worthwhile addition to our range!

In stock now, they retail for £11.99 per pair, and come in colours Black, Grey, Brown, Sky Blue & Navy.

The second new product is the new 380 'cycle-short' style unisex briefs.  Fans of Japanese anime and manga will know these as 'spats' (short for 'spandex pants'); they are commonly seen in many anime, so if you are a fan... :-)

Available in Black, and one size, which will fit most, they sell out at a very reasonable £5.99. Lightweight, and very comfortable, they are ideal as underwear (they are not suitable to wear as a top layer, as the fabric is too 'revealing'). In stock now!
