Reviewed: Glamory Thermoman 100 Men's Leggings/Footless Tights

The German hosiery brand Glamory sent us a pair of their new Thermoman 100 men's footless tights/leggings.



Glamory make a wide range of men's tights.You can read Part 1 and Part 2 of the Hosiery For Men feature and interview with Glamory.





Materials and features

The Thermoman 100 men's footless tights/legging are packaged in the customary Comfort4Men style: the tights are folded around a card rectangle that provides instructions on how to put on tights (if needed). This is enclosed in a light card folded over the tights, and then housed in a clear plastic envelope.





The Thermoman are made from 90% Polyamide and 10% Elastane.

They are described by Glamory as:

'Opaque men leggings with a matt finish, soft microfiber, very comfortable to wear, perfect fit, flat seams, comfort gusset, reinforced panty with fly'.
On inspection it seems that The Thermoman tights/leggings are actually a footless version of the Glamory Microman 100 tights.

The tights are opaque with a matt finish that has just a slight sheen.

The brief/panty is lightly reinforced and made from a slightly denser fabric; the demarcation with the legs is not particularly noticeable.

The brief has a front centre panel that is 11cm wide, with two seams extending up to the waistband. The fly opening is constructed as part of the centre panel. It is a generous opening, which measures almost 16cm in length, and provides plenty of room for access and manoeuvrability. The brief has good depth. There is a conventional rear seam.

The waistband is 4.5cm wide.

The cuffs are are 3cm wide and constructed from the fabric being doubled over.







Fit and sizing

The Thermoman 100 men's footless tights/leggings are available in six sizes: M, L, XL, 2XL, 3XL and 4XL.



I tested the XL size.

The Thermoman leggings/footless tights are a comfortable wear. The fabric is soft but doesn't have a huge amount of stretch. This means care is needed to make sure that you get the right size.

The XL size provided an excellent fit, but if I was slightly taller than my 5'10" I think the 2XL would be a better option.

The high (10%) Elastane content provided a close fit on the legs. On the thigh they were slightly tighter than expected.

The brief is excellent and clearly designed with men in mind. The waistband stretches easily above the waist and hips.

Glide under trousers was excellent.

A further plus point are the cuffs which sit just above the ankle. These are well finished and stay nicely in place.

Colour range
The Thermoman 100 men's footless tights/leggings are available in Black only.


Price and availability
The Thermoman 100 men's footless tights/leggings are now available at My Tights priced at £12.95.



Conclusion

The Thermoman 100 men's footless tights/leggings are a decent addition to the Glamory range of men's tights. It's a good move to make a footless version of the Microman, as that provides more flexibility and choice.

The Thermoman are well-designed and well-made. Care has been taken to create a brief and fly-opening that fit the male body. It's a good combination of comfort and functionality.

The Thermoman are a great alternative to traditional long-johns, and will provide insulation and comfort without being bulky and overly loose-fitting.

Perfect for wearing under shorts, under trousers and for all types of sporting activities.

Glamory have also released a promotional video for the Thermoman 100 men's tights/leggings.
