Spotlight on MyStockings

MyStockings is a new arrival on the hosiery retail scene in the UK.

We recently spoke to Kriszta of MyStockings and we are pleased to now publish this interview.

Can you tell Hosiery For Men readers about MyStockings? Why did you start the business and how has it developed?
MyStockings entered the market this June. So, it is fairly new and solely online. There are some great online shops in the UK offering a wide variety of legwear. The question naturally rises as to why to launch another business of the same sort. We enjoy fashion and are enthusiastic about hosiery. Our purpose is to provide a different choice not necessarily in brands, more in models and styles.

What are the main brands of tights that you stock?

We have started out with just a few brands. We insist on high standards and beauty. We have fabulous, French designer made GERBE of Paris tights by Gaspard Yurkievich. Wonderful, Belgian-made tights and stockings by Cette.

Ballerina and Gabriella are reliable Polish brands. Italian-made Jolie Folie has just debuted in the UK through Mystockings with its Selene 50 denier models in the colours of the rainbow.

What kind of service will male customers receive at MyStockings? Do you welcome enquiries and requests for advice?
All our customers get high quality services from the moment they land on our pages. Besides basic services, all orders are hand-wrapped in golden tissue paper, tied with satin ribbon and posted in discreet packaging. There is no indication of content of the parcel on the outside. We provide free UK delivery on orders over £30.

We deeply believe that our customers help us shape our business, thus all comments, suggestions, requests are welcome and considered. We actually encourage our visitors and customers to contact us with their requests, whether they are service or product related. If you have a particular item you are looking for and cannot find anywhere, we will happily try to get it for you.

Are there any brands and styles that you particularly recommend for men?
There are some unisex models that can meet all expectations and also there are brands especially designed for men.

There is always quite a lot of media interest in the subject of tights for men. What are your thoughts about the greater visibility of men buying and wearing tights?
Running tights, compression pants and tights are widely accepted and used by men. Their benefits are recognised. It only takes one more step to realise how nice and comfortable tights can be on an everyday basis. Some men around us might already have worn tights under trousers and stayed invisible. Tights are great and men shouldn’t be excluded from wearing them.

A lot of people associate male tights with fetishes which makes their recognition as an ordinary garment more difficult.

To men thinking about trying tights, what would you say are the main benefits of wearing them?
Comfort. Practicality. Durability. Simplicity.

Especially opaque winter tights are perfect for keeping warm.

What are your plans for the future at MyStockings? Are you planning to stock any tights specifically made for men?
We at MyStockings focus currently on ladies' hosiery. If we recognise a growing demand among our customers for male tights, we definitely will stock them.

Thanks for speaking to Hosiery For Men Kriszta. We hope readers will check out the MyStockings website, as well as stay in touch with you on Twitter and Facebook.
