Tights for men for autumn and winter: Part 3

Part 1 and Part 2 of my recommendations for tights for men for autumn and winter were recent posts on this blog. In the third part of the series we will features products available from UK Tights.

UK Tights is one of the Britain's leading hosiery retailers on the internet. They stock a huge selection of brands and have very friendly and helpful customer service. UK Tights welcome male customers buying tights for themselves and also has a dedicated Men's Tights page on their website.

I have already blogged about the excellent prices currently available on Gerbe tights for men at UK Tights.

So my first recommendation are the Gerbe Men's 70 Denier Opaque Tights. These tights are superb quality and are available at the bargain price of £26.95. You can still read my previously published thoughts on Gerbe tights for men on this blog.

The Aristoc 120 Denier Cotton Sheen Opaque Tights look the pick of the new range of Aristoc opaque tights. I haven't reviewed these yet, but they look top quality and are also available in Extra Large sizes.

The Charnos 60 Denier Opaque Tights are a bestseller at UK Tights and they are excellent value. I have bought several pairs of these over the years and the fit is always excellent. These tights are available in a range of colours, including shades that will be popular with men such as Black, Chocolate, Navy and Grey. They are great value at only £5.50.

I own several pairs of the Falke Seidenglatt 70 Denier Tights. These tights feel wonderful on the legs and their slight shine means they glide well under trousers. They are available in a range of sizes up to Extra Large.

My final recommendation are the Pierre Mantoux Veloutine 70 Tights. I haven't tried these yet but according to UK Tights: 'Unlike any other opaque tights you may have worn before, I promise, you'll not want to take these off at the end of the day.' I really like the colours available for these tights and again it's welcome that an Extra Large size is available and is suitable for heights up to 6'0"


  1. Those Pierre Mantoux Veloutine 70 Tights look amazingly nice. In the model photo, you can see that they remain opaque even when bending at the knee. That's really nice for a 70 denier, which must mean the fabric weave is nicely tight, while still being stretchy (no wrinkles seen). They also offer a 100 denier version, but curiously the photo of the model shown suggests less opacity when flexing. I just wish these tights weren't so expensive! I am looking forward to you getting these at some point and sharing your impression, as I wonder if they would join your top 5 favorites.

  2. Thanks Seamless. I hope to try the Pierre Mantoux Veloutine 70 Tights soon.
