  1. Great advice for males and like females …..πŸ™‚ oh and nice to see my name in the "Special Thanks" at end. Great vlog/video again

  2. It's been a while since I wanted to congratulate u for ur channel, and I want u to know that u are really inspiring man, thanks 4 that. I've been a wheelchair user since day 1 and finding this kind of content on YT feels awesome. Greetings from πŸ‡²πŸ‡½.

  3. I’m not a guy. But I do wish women or a person that’s a woman had something up like this. Being in a wheelchair all the time, and being a woman you want to dress nice. But also very comfortable.

  4. Are joggers also made for women? Can you maybe do a fashion video with a women who is also in a wheelchair? I am a woman who is 4”3 ( very very very short ) and in a wheelchair. It can be very hard to find
    clothes

  5. I used to get dressed on my bed but over the last year I’ve changed to getting dressed in my chair. It’s much quicker and stops me from laying down for half an hour after I get dressed. On the downside i have torn some pants and had to replace them

  6. I used to buy bootcut jeans to hide my small lower legs. It’s really not successful just sloppy, get something nicely fitted it just looks cleaner and more confident

  7. I know that feeling of the leg bag with my stoma. i think everyone knows its there. reality is most people are shocked to learn i have one.

    I find tops hardest to buy, the amount of times i think i'm good but my sleeves get caught in the spokes and will not stay rolled up?!?! Buttons on jacket sleeves are a massive issue too and the style i like all have huge buttons and buttons on the but sometimes also.

    The beauty of being a woman is leggings….. We can wear them with everything and no one even thinks about it, they are so well priced too. i have pairs that look exactly like skinny jeans.

  8. Great content again bud! Am I the only one being a (para) and since day 1 have worn shorts all day every day? except for when I go out at night with my wife I wear long pants… but I just don’t like the feeling of them on my lower part of my legs lol

  9. What I do is take a pair of cheap and comfy yoga pants or leggings, cut it to about the length of boxers and sew the legs of whatever jeans or patterned pants I like but couldn't wear as they are. It's really not noticeable at all if you pair them with a slightly long t-shirt that covers the part were both fabrics meet!
    I don't know if this would work just as well for men as it does for women, but I'm putting it out there just in case it helps πŸ™‚

    P.S. Great video, Richard! I found your channel a little while ago and I'm delighted by how real yet positive and encouraging you are. As someone who was born with a disability, I really appreciate all content that shows people we can live fulfilling lives, and also that becoming a wheelchair user doesn't mean your life is over.
    Thank you for your work, keep it up!

  10. This is cool. I'm waiting on my chair. It's going to be bright green. The nurse and my husband were asking "are you sure.are you sure? You can't change it once you have it" I'm a colours person. And my thought was simply IF people are looking already, they now have something to look at (I'm gonna get eco stickers too).
    I do wear a lot of black and grey but it always has to have colourful text or images. Coloured underwear, sock etc.
    The joggers thing is interesting. I'm a jeggings person (thick kind) or army/utility kind (those aren't ideal for chair though). Definitely going to make me look more into suitable trousers for the chair (I hate having to pull my trousers up mid roll).

  11. I’m a wheelchair user too
    I hate the way I look etc and live with bouts of severe depression in constant severe pains and so I can relate. Stay safe and thank you both πŸ’•πŸ€ŸπŸ»πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§

  12. I knew clothes especially pants can be problematic if you use a wheelchair but the idea of back pockets causing skin sores was a new idea. Also my mind is blown of the thought that a limp foot can get crinkled up in a shoe. Thank you so much for making these videos not just to help others who use a wheelchair but to help others understand your struggles.

  13. Glad yous came out of your shell. For me I didnt really care about what people thought of me. But that's how I've been all my life. Awesome guys.
