Mantyhose

Gerbe Mens 100 Denier Opaque Silk Tights

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.

  1. I agree that the 70Lb price for Selfridge’s ‘Mantihose’ line is pretty staggering. Part of the reason for the high price may be because these aren’t really tights or pantyhose, but more like leggings, which would typically cost more. That’s just my take from the photos that were available in the press when they were first launched.

  2. Its really good that UK Tights recognises that many men like to wear tights and caters to this segment of the market. I can confirm that both the gerbe and WoMan tights are excellent – actually the latter are brilliant – the most comfortable tights I have ever worn. However I have also found that some brands of women’s tights also fit really well. The Charnos 60 denier opaque are fantastic value and are great under jeans or trousers for an extra layer of warmth in cold weather.

  3. I found your blog on google and read a few of your other posts. I just added you to my Google News Reader. Keep up the fantastic work Look forward to reading more from you in the future.

  4. I have been an avid supporter of this website for some time and never really offered anything back, I am hoping to change that in the future with increased dialogue.Thanks for another great addition for the web site.

  5. mens underweare should be as comfortable as possible because men always engages in a lot of physical work.`-
