“Men’s Tights aren’t necessarily any different to women’s tights, however there are certain styles that suit male shapes and needs better than others. The Tight Spot welcomes all it’s customers – male or female and we have had many calls and emails from male customers asking for advice on which styles will be best for them. Whether you wear tights for warmth, fashion prowess or circulation problems we hope you’ll find just what you are looking for. Ranges that have high waisted, bigger sizes tend to be most popular for a comfortable fit whilst durability and a soft finish are also key factors men look for when choosing hosiery. This is why you’ll find a number of high quality styles from brands such as Wolford in this section. Tights with natural fibres such as the Falke Cotton Perfection, are also popular amongst men, especially as these can look like socks if worn beneath trousers!”
This strong recommendation made us keen to evaluate them. Even more so as they say: “Wash after wash, wear after wear you’ll not want to take these sophisticated, cotton tights off.”
Packaging for the Falke Cotton Perfection Tights is very simple indeed. The tights are folded and held in a card clasp. This provides all the product and sizing information needed. There is also a plastic hook so that the tights can be displayed in stores.
Material and features
Falke describe the Cotton Perfection Tights as follows:
- Fine opaque cotton tights made of our innovative “Belle Nature” material.
- Perfect mesh structure.
- Give your legs a pleasant feel and a gentle breath of sheer elegance
- With a high-quality cotton gusset for superb comfort.
They are made from 58% Polyamide, 38% Cotton and 4% Elastane.
The yarn is 50 denier and quite lightweight, with a wonderfully soft, smooth and luxurious feel. These tights provide even opaque coverage but at the same time allow your legs to breathe. Falke describe them as having “velvety perfection”, which is a good description.
The XL size that we tried has impressive length in the legs. The tights are sheer to waist with no demarcation between the leg and the brief.
Appearance is mainly matte, with very little shine.
Seams are flat throughout and engineered to the usual excellent Falke quality.
The XL size does not have a cotton gusset but a rare comfort panel which seems to be standard in Falke XL sizes.
There is a 2.5cm Falke comfort waistband. Sewn into this is a Falke label – an extra touch of quality but so useful also for identifying the brand, style and size.
Fit and sizing
I tested a pair in the XL size.
Fit, as always with the Falke XL size, was excellent. These tights have generous leg length, and a deep, comfortable brief.
The Falke Cotton Perfection Tights are priced at £26.95.
The Falke Cotton Perfection Tights are one of the best cotton tights we have reviewed at Hosiery For Men. They can take their place in the ‘elite’ of premium cotton tights which would also include:
And of course the Falke Cotton Touch Tights that we have already mentioned.
The Cotton Perfection Tights are an example of a how a top brand using advanced technologies and new yarns can create something classic (cotton tights), but with a classy, contemporary twist.
The Cotton Perfection Tights feel just great to wear and I am certain they will be getting plenty of wear from me this autumn and winter.
