Reviewed: Comfort4Men C405M 70 Denier Opaque Men's Tights

Comfort4Men is a leading men's hosiery brand in Europe. Their tights for men are made in Germany to the highest standards. They are tights that are specifically designed to provide an excellent fit and level of comfort for the male anatomy.

We have previously reviewed several styles of Comfort4Men men's tights at Hosiery For Men, including:

40 Denier Men's Support Tights

60 Denier Luxury Men's Tights

70 Denier Opaque Men's Tights

80 Denier Opaque Men's Tights

50 Denier Luxury Men's Tights

100 Denier Men's Footless Tights

We also recently provided Hosiery For Men readers with news about the innovative Silver Textile products that Comfort4Men have launched.

We now focus on the C405M 70 Denier Opaque Men's Tights. These tights are part of Comfort4Men's extensive range of opaque tights for men. If there is another brand that provides such an extensive range as this, I have yet to hear of it. Comfort4Men produce so many styles now that we are really spoilt for choice.

The C405M 70 Denier Opaque Men's Tights are available in high-waist and low-waist styles. My preference is usually for the high-waist style in Comfort4Men tights. These provide plenty of room for me in the brief and abdominal area and ensure the tights stretch well above the waist.

With every pair of Comfort4Men tights that you order, there is always an absolutely huge range of features and choices that can be made.

As well as being available in high-waist and low-waist styles, the C405M 70 Denier Opaque Men's Tights are available in six colours. You can also choose to have them made with the gusset in Black or Skin colour. Finally, they are also available with or without a fly opening. That makes, if my calculation is correct, a possible 48 possible permutations, even without size options being included!

The sample provided to me had the following features:

  • High waist
  • Colour: Indigo
  • Gusset colour: Silver
  • Fly opening: Yes
  • Size: 6
Materials and features
The C405M 70 Denier Opaque Men's Tights are packaged in the customary Comfort4Men style: a card enclosure wrapped in a cellophane sleeve.

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

Comfort4Men say: 'You will be thrilled with the softness of this material!'

They are absolutely correct there. These tights are amazingly soft; one of the softest styles of opaque tights I have ever tried.

The fabric is 70 denier, but in appearance these tights look more like 100 denier. Opaque coverage is dense and even throughout. When worn the fabric has a slight shine.

This style is sheer to waist with flat seams throughout, engineered to the usual high Comfort4men standard. The brief has a rear comfort panel. The waistband is 3.5cm wide. Toes have almost invisible reinforcement.

This style has the signature Comfort4Men-designed gusset that has been created to provide maximum comfort for the male anatomy. To enable me to test and evaluate the new Silver Textile gusset, Comfort4Men included this in the tights sample that they provided.

The gusset, shown above, was very comfortable. I have never come across a material like this before in men's underwear. It is far superior to the cotton materials that are normally used in men's briefs and feels very smooth and soft on the skin.

The fly opening (should you chose for it to be included) is extremely well-designed and also easy to use. One could wear these tights without any underwear underneath.

Fit and sizing

The C405M 70 Denier Opaque Men's Tights are available in three sizes: 4, 5 and 6.

The fit was excellent. The fabric used moulds and clings to the legs like a second skin. There is no wrinkling or bunching.

As mentioned above these tights are very, very soft to the touch and this provides a very pleasant, comfortable feeling when worn.

The high waist version, that I tested, has a very generous brief. The waistband provided good support, without any pinching.

The slightly shiny quality to the fabric provides excellent glide under trousers.

As mentioned above, Comfort4Men provided me with a special version of these tights with the silver gusset included. This gusset was very comfortable indeed and provided excellent support for the male anatomy.

Colour range

The C405M 70 Denier Opaque Men's Tights are available in six colours:
  • Black
  • Dark Brown 
  • Indigo
  • Kobalt
  • Nature
  • Navy
I tested a pair in the Indigo colour, a warm, bright blue.

Price and availability
The C405M 70 Denier Opaque Men's Tights are priced at €38.80 plus shipping. Shipping rates vary depending on the destination.

For countries outside of the European Union, German value added tax is not payable. This is removed automatically during the order process.

If you purchase these tights in the low-waist version, the price is €37.80.

I was really impressed with these tights, particularly the fabric which is just so soft and comfortable. I like them so much I would like to get a pair in every colour!

I wore the C405M 70 Denier Opaque Men's Tights several times before writing up this review and was also pleased how durable they are. 

These are quite simply top quality men's tights, made with expertise and attention to every detail.


  1. I don't ever see compression tights for men and there are some us that have to wear them. Sigvaris is a big supplier of compression hosiery, they sell compression socks and thigh high stockings for both men and women but no pantyhose for men. I started wearing their thigh highs but have switch to the 842PMLW99 20-30 mmHg women's pantyhose because they stay in place. It would be nice to see some compression pantyhose for men here.

  2. Is the Silver Textile gusset sheer or Semi sheer or Opaque...... Thanks
