Tights for men for the cold snap from Tightsplease

The thermometer has been dropping sharply all over the UK. With snow and freezing winds have been blasting most regions, women and men will be focused on keeping warm and comfortable when they are outside.

Many men know that tights provide great insulation in cold temperatures. They are much less bulky than traditional long johns, and the yarns used in tights also provide a much more comfortable fit.

It was great to be asked by the retailer Tightsplease to recommend tights suitable for men from the huge range they stock.

All the tights recommended have been reviewed in rigorous detail on the Hosiery For Men blog, so you can buy with confidence.

Falke Pure Matt 100 Tights

The German brand Falke made superb quality tights. The sizing options are excellent, and they are designed for a perfect fit. The Pure Matt 100 tights are completely opaque and available in Extra Large for taller guys. Year after year these are usually our first choice when it gets really cold.

Cette Dublin Plus Size Tights

Cette have always been a favourite with male customers at Tightsplease. The Dublin Plus Size tights are just the thing if you need opaque tights in larger sizes.

Wolford Velvet de Luxe 66 Tights

Wolford have an unparalleled reputation for quality. Not many people know that in the 1990s they made opaque tights for men with the curious name 'waist socks'! The Velvet De Luxe 66 are one of the most popular opaques made by Wolford and rightly so. We were so impressed with the fit and how comfortable they are to wear that we awarded them 'Recommended' status on the blog.

Charnos 60 Denier Opaque Tights

These great value opaque tights from Charnos are always a good standby. At 60-denier they are not as thick as the warmest winter tights, but are great on cooler days. They have good stretch and a nice deep brief. If you are tall, go for the Large size rather than the Extra Large.

Falke Cotton Touch Tights

For our final recommendation we go back to Falke. Cotton tights have good breathability qualities and are a good choice to wear instead of socks. The Cotton Touch Tights have a matt appearance, so no one will know you are wearing tights. 

They are available in an XL size.

  1. Not sure about Falke as they are expensive and difficult to justify from a bloke's warmth rather than public show point of view. I find that a lot of other more affordable opaques work fine, particularly John Lewis 60 Denier Velvet Touch Opaque Tights, Black, XL.
