    I just realized we don't have a tights thread ... how can we not have a tights thread?!?! So now we do ...

    I really like DKNY tights, and my favorite at the moment are a mid-grey pair with a fairly widely-spaced shadow stripe rib.

    I know a lot of people love Wolford, I've just never been able to understand why I should spend the extra $$, so maybe someone can explain it to me now :lol:

    Express have a decent selection. ^_^ They're usually tough enough to withstand any barbed wire fence I might try to walk against. :lol:

    Sometime the color selection is :wacko: and ri-donk-culous but otherwise, the sheer ones are fantastic. I've never had a tear. EVER.

    I get my tights from sockdreams.com, modcloth.com and american apparel.

    I love colored and opaque.

    ^ How is the quality of modcloth.com? I've seen advertisements for that site everywhere, but I'm very skeptical of buying from sites because I am never totally sure of their quality despite how cute their items may be. :flower:

    Ohh my favourite pair is super duper old... grey tights from Jacob, a Canadian store... I've had them for as long as I can remember (seriously!) and they still look good as new ^_^

    Well ok, there's a tiny little hole but around the crotch so it doesn't really matter :lol:

    I like DKNY too ^_^ and others I just buy from Winners... they're usually not too expensive and good quality!

    I have waay to many tights. Probably around 20-30 pairs! :p
    My favorites are some opaque that I have, but I also invested in a cashmere pair, dark grey, and they are so soft. I always start to stroke my thigh when I wear them, which most likely makes me look very strange!!

    I find the quality pretty good.

    I know what you mean.

    Always good to find something that looks good and made good. Once you find it, you never understand how you went along without it. lol

    I just bought these beauties from shopbop, theyre Cynthia Vincent.

    My fave brand of tights are Hue, Calvin Klein, DKNY - these usually hold up well for me. Oh & H&M has pretty good tights too.

    for leggings and wool tights, i like falke. the construction is much sturdier and more tailored than standard tights. the rise is a little higher, too, which i like because i get annoyed with tights i have to constantly pull up.

    i also have a pair of regular tights from falke and they pilled just the same as low-end ones when i wore them with high boots.

    i have never tried wolford, but have always wanted to.

    I love spanx tights. I get them discounted at century 21 or marshalls/tjmaxx. Speaking of which, I need to get to c21 and pick up a few more pairs.

    I used to shop at TJ Maxx when I was younger, but everything seemed to be very much seconds :unsure: Have things changed, or how do you avoid that?

    My kind of thread, I am obsessed with tights. Right now, I really like Topshops ones, which have lots of really nice patterned/coloured ones.

    (PS For those US people, what is the difference between a pantyhose and tights?)
