Fogal, is one of the most prestigious hosiery brands. It was founded in 1921 in Zurich and is now an internationally established luxury brand in the legwear and knitwear sector.
“A modern classic for chilly days. Smooth pantyhose made from the finest cotton and cashmere. Very soft, warm and in four fabulous shades. Comfortable sewn on waistband.”
The tights arrived in beautiful packaging from Luxury Legs. You can really tell that they value customers as all of their hosiery is packaged as shown. Such a nice touch.
Presentation is simple and elegant. The tights are folded over a plain card rectangle, which is then enclosed in the main card packaging. Everything is then housed in a cellophane envelope. The look is understated but classy.
These tights feel absolutely luxurious due to the special yarn used (72% Cotton, 13% Cashmere, 12% Nylon and 3% Spandex).
We have reviewed a lot of cotton tights at Hosiery For Men, but the cashmere used here really adds something extra.
They are sheer to waist tights with no demarcation between the leg and the brief/panty.
The tights looked quite small to be when I took them from the packaging, but the Spandex provides them with impressive stretch.
The brief/panty has a rear comfort panel in the Large Extra size, and a conventional cotton gusset in other sizes.
Toes are rounded with no reinforcement.
The waistband is a shade under 2.5cm wide. It is quite a unique design, being sewn onto the brief. It has the Fogal logo on the outside, while the inside is made from a very soft material. The aim being to provide support without any discomfort.
- Large Extra
I tested a pair in the Large Extra size.
These tights have really impressive stretch, despite looking rather small. Fit was really good after carefully working them up the legs.
In terms of feel on the skin they are definitely the softest cotton tights I have ever worn.
The brief was perhaps slightly less deep than I would like. Men generally will usually need more depth in this area for obvious reasons. However, once again the stretch qualities of these tights helped greatly and it was quite easy to pull the waist over the hips.he
The unique Fogal waistband provided really comfortable support.
I tested a pair in the Anthra-Mele shade, a dark charcoal cover and a great alternative to black.

We mentioned at the start of this review that this is the first time we have worn and reviewed tights from Fogal.
The Fogal Touch Cotton and Cashmere Tights are a seriously impressive product. Somewhat pricey, but as we have written before, quality products cost more and will also provide a better wearing experience and longevity if looked after.
