Reviewed: ADRIAN 100 denier footless tights

This is the second in a series of reviews of the new range of Men Collection tights produced by the Polish hosiery manufacturers ADRIAN.

The earlier review of the 60 denier Grating tights achieved a massive number of page views - the highest so far in the short life of this blog. Thanks for all the comments received.

Today we are reviewing the 100 denier footless tights.

Materials and features
These footless tights are black and very opaque.

The fabric is 92% Polyamide and 8% Elastane. As soon as you remove them from the packaging these tights feel quite heavy and robust. A lot of thought has also clearly been invested in their design and manufacture.

The tights have flat seams and a wide and very comfortable 4.5cm waistband. The legs are finished with a 4cm cuff.

The tights have plenty of stretch and the brief section is ample and includes a comfort rear panel. They have clearly been designed with the male customer in mind.

There is a very well-designed male front opening - one of the best I have seen in tights designed for men.

Fit and sizing
The ADRIAN footless tights come in two sizes:

S/M: Height 164cm - 176 cm
L/XL: Height 176cm - 188 cm

I am 5'10" and tested a pair in L/XL size. The fit was excellent in every respect.

Colour range
The Adrian 100 den footless tights appear at present to be available only in the Black.

Price and availability
These tights are available for 19.15 Polish Zloty from the ADRIAN website. However the website is in Polish. 

They are also available from the Adrian South Africa website.

These tights by ADRIAN are seriously good quality. I am sure they will wear really well and be an excellent purchase for men who want insulation and comfort in cold weather. They are absolutely superior in every way to traditional long johns.
