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.

Also new this month, we have the new Model 0188 STW Dance Tights from Doyeah.
The 0188's are a sheer-to-waist style of glossy tights; they are a high-quality design comprising 82% Nylon and 18% elastane in 70 Denier wrapped Lycra yarn. They are designed for dancewear use, and have a single centre seam and small cotton gusset. They have a small area of reinforcement around the seams, and reinforced toes. 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.

0188 Black
The tights come in one size, which will cover heights of 160-185cm (approx 5' 3" - 6' 0") and hips of approx 85-108cm (32" - 44"). They have a comfortable, wide (2cm) sewn-in waistband. They are available in colours Light Skin, Pale Skin, Gold Skin, White and Black, and are in stock now at £10.99GBP per pair.

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.
