We should probably start all our reviews with a big thank you to the retailer who provided the review sample from their stock, without their help we could not provide the service that we do. When a retailer sends us samples from super premium brands like Fogal we are especially grateful... so thank you Luxury Legs.
This style along with Nepal and Touch are from the AW 2012 collection but the colours are just as suitable for this season and such is the quality of Fogal hosiery we suspect that most pairs bought last year will still be being worn this year... if you buy now yours will just look newer.
The collection is based heavily on natural fibres with just a small amount of Nylon to provide durability and strength and Lycra to give stretch and improve fit. Cotton is perfect for keeping you warm without getting you hot, just the thing for the winter
There are three colours to choose from: taupe, brown and black, all completely timeless.
You can’t really quote a denier for natural fibre but these are opaque winter tights of around 80 denier appearance. So how do they differ from everyday opaque tights at a fraction on the price?
Well firstly they are beautifully knitted with just a simple fine seam over the top of the toe and a fully knitted in shaped heel. Entirely uniform in knit and finish from hip to toe and featuring flat seams and a gusset (unlined as the tights are 80% cotton anyway) these tights offer the ultimate in fit and are perfect under more clingy fashions. The only texture in these tights in that of the fine knitting.
As ever Fogal top these tights off with their simple but ever so effective signature waistband.
There are three sizes to choose from, small, medium and large, MX and LX are not available for these season lines. The sizing is spot on with plenty of length for the taller lady.
As you can see not only are these beautifully made and practical tights they look great too, maybe not cheap but excellent value.
Oh yes... nearly forgot, at the time of writing you can get 10% off at Luxury Legs with code TF10.
