Fogal would probably claim to be the top hosiery brand in Europe, if not the World. Wolford and their fans would dispute this but if exclusivity were solely a matter of price and limited outlets Fogal would take the title. Prices range from just under £20 for a basic sheer tight to over £200 for their most expensive tights.
In the UK you can only buy Fogal tights in three places, all in London. These are Harrods, Fenwicks and Fogal’s own boutique opposite Harvey Nichols.
We purchased some of our test pairs from Fogal’s own shop. This is the best place to go as the staff have over 20 years experience in Fogal hosiery so can give expert advice on fitting. One comment they did make was that being Swiss Fogal tights are sized shorter than some other top brands. The Fogal store also has a pair of each style on a pair of circular rails so that you can inspect them from toe to waist before you buy.
It is clear that Fogal intend you to buy based on advice and description as the packets are among the most unexciting we have ever seen. Indeed Fogal’s own staff have told us their tights are intended to be sold rather than just bought.
Fogal sizing in interesting as they increase in length from small, through medium to large with the medium and large sizes having standard and fuller fit, the latter being MX and LX. Full size chart below.
