Reviewed: Adrian 40 Denier Men's "Stripes" Tights

I recently purchased a pair of the 40 Denier Men's "Stripes" Tights made by the Polish brand Adrian.

The "Stripes" tights are part of the extensive range of men's tights from Adrian.


The Adrian 40 Denier Men's "Stripes" Tights are attractively packaged.

The tights are housed in a plain white card flat box, which is is inserted into a card sleeve that provides all the product information.

Inside the box, the tights are folded around a rectangular card that provides for information and images of Adrian men's tights. This is then housed in a transparent plastic envelope.

Material and features

First impressions on removing the tights from the packaging are positive. The tights are soft and have a quality feel.

These are 40 denier tights made with 90% Polyamide and 10% Elastane (Lycra).

As can be seen in the images, the "Stripes" tights have an attractive rib pattern that extends all the way to the waistband.

The waistband is 4.5cm wide.

The brief is deep and comfortable. Adrian have clearly designed the the tights to fit the male anatomy, and a front panel, without a fly opening, is also provided. Seams are flat throughout.

Toes are rounded and without reinforcement.

Sizing, fit and wearing experience

The Adrian 40 Denier Men's "Stripes" Tights are available in three sizes: 3 (M), 4 (L) and (5) XL.

I tested the tights in the Large size. My height is about 177cm and the L size was perfect.

The "Stripes" tights have excellent leg length and were easy to put on. They needed no stretching at all.

Opacity is excellent and even throughout. In appearance they look much denser that what you would expect for 40 denier tights.

Fit was really exceptional. The tights mould beautifully to the leg. The brief is deep and the waistband sits comfortable above the waist. The male front panel is really well designed - it extends below the crotch and joins into a single rear seam (no rear panel).

Best of all, these tights feel incredibly soft and smooth to the touch.

Glide is excellent under trousers.

Colour range

The Adrian 40 Denier Men's "Stripes" Tights are available in two colours: grey with black (nero) stripes, and denim blue (jeans) with black (nero) stripes.

I tried the jeans/nero shade which is similar to navy blue.

Price and availability

The Adrian 40 Denier Men's "Stripes" Tights can be purchased via the Adrian online shop for €5.13.

They are also available from the following retailers:


The Stylish Fox

I purchased them from the online retailer Aurellie for just £5.99. The first pair I received was actually fault but they were immediately replaced with another pair. The customer service was excellent.


I was actually quite surprised at just how excellent these Adrian "Stripes" tights are.

The material, design, fit and wearing experience were all top notch and all this for just £5.99 (if purchased from Aurelie).

They are easily the nicest Adrian style I have tried so far and I now plan to get a pair in the grey shade as well.

For quality and value these deserve a Hosiery For Men recommendation.
