(Filed Under wholesale Hosiery News). Glamory Hosiery owner Timothy Gettler made an interesting case for retailers to start selling his product to men, in a message emailed to BODY.
While his company offers a complete line of leg fashions for women, in an extremely wide range of sizes, it also contains five hosiery collections specifically designed for men. While Gettler acknowledged that his male customers include all types, “Many of the men who wear hosiery are not gay, freaks, cross-dressers or any other label you want to give them. They are the postal workers, mechanics, police officers, fireman, corporate executives to office workers and men in the medical field.”
Several centuries ago, he pointed out, “Tights were once only for men. This was back before women were allowed to wear pants, or even show their legs. Thankfully times have changed, and women can now wear whatever they want... so why can’t men?”
“Men wear hosiery for style and support. Whether it’s under their trousers in the office or shorts while out doing everyday things. They are made for the fashion forward guy that likes to dress on point and live the luxury lifestyle,” he contended, adding, “Glamory has designed hosiery for men and taken special care to have it fit a man, just as with the women’s line, taken additional steps to ensure comfort.”
The five men’s styles are Classic20, the company’s sheerest hosiery at a 20 denier, “perfect to wear under your trousers;” Support40, a semi-transparent hosiery with a 40 denier, designed with “supporting properties” for those on their “feet all day;” Support70, a heavier weight tight “ideal for the colder times of the year or colder climates;” Microman100, which provide warmth as well as compression and is ideal for “the gym or a pick up game of basketball or running or cycling or any sports activity;” and Thermoman100, a footless version of the Microman100, which include “flat seams, comfort gusset, reinforced panty and built in fly.” Contact Glamory Hosiery at 800 452-0145 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
