Designers are always trying to reinvent the way we look at our clothing, with some designers blurring the lines between gender to change what we’re wearing.
Manbags are the classic example, being extremely popular in Europe and now Jean Paul Gaultier has released his range of guyliner, but its mantyhose that we are interested in.
Certainly not a new phenomenon, tights for men is still a ground-breaking statement in the fashion world. Men in tights have been the norm for hundreds of years and it’s understandable that the trend is returning.
Big Business, however, might just ruin the return. Selfridges have been the first big department store to take on the products, but for some years now, smaller businesses have been making anatomically designed men’s tights and selling them at a reasonable price. We are pleased to be one of these selected smaller companies selling mantyhose.
Compared to Selfridges charging a modest £70 per pair, Parisian brands like Gerbe are a steal, with some of their items selling at less than £20 and European brand WoMan selling theirs at less than £10.
Whoever said that cutting edge fashion had to be so costly? It wasn’t us and we stand by our belief, hosiery should be affordable and for everyone who cares to wear it.
