A look back at 2019

As we start a new year, I thought it would be nice to take stock of how 2019 went for Hosiery For Men.

The absolute highlight of the year, for a hosiery blogger, was the trip made at the invitation of Wolford to their headquarters in Bregenz, Austria.


You can read all about this amazing trip here and here.

Following this visit, Wolford also interviewed me, and you can read that here or here.

It was a pleasure to continue to collaborate with so many hosiery brands.

As Hosiery For Men enters its tenth year, some of the hard work has definitely paid off as more and more hosiery brands are recognising that many men are buying and wearing tights and other legwear.

In 2019 we reviewed tights, leggings, legwear and clothing from 18 different brands. In total we published 47 reviews.

The most reviewed brand was Wolford, followed by Pretty Polly and Aristoc.

We also reviewed tights, leggings and other garments from: Heist, Glamory, Snag Tights, Bahner, Emilio Cavallini, Oroblu, Hēdoïne, Gipsy, Platino, Cette, Levante, Chaffree, Golden Lady and Pamela Mann.

One of the most rewarding collaborations we took part in was with the tights and shapewear brand Heist.

We worked with Heist to support the guidance and frequently asked questions they published for men who might need advice when buying Heist tights. You can read that here.

To complement this we also published Hosiery For Men's own complete guide for men buying Heist tights. You can read that here.

In a significant development, last year saw three hosiery brands deciding to use male models as part of their product publicity. You can read all about CARRA Hosiery's photoshoot here, why Garni Tights styled a guy in their opaque tights here, and how Snag Tights now feature guys in their product shots here.

Finally thanks to the hosiery retailers who continue to support this blog, with a special mention for our recommended retailer UK Tights, where you can find the best selection of hosiery anywhere, and very attentive and supportive customer service for men buying tights.
