Wolford Luxury Ladies Stockings for Special Occasions

You may be surprised to hear that stockings were originally worn by men and made of cloth. It was not until the 1930’s that they were introduced to society with hemlines getting shorter and thus the air of sexuality was introduced. The word Nylons came from their introduction in New York in 1940.

The wonder of such a small piece of fashion is immense. They can make an outfit for a lady, add power, make a grown man blush and certainly are a key element to dressing as a lady.

Thus Gentlemen should take note as it is part of gentility to understand both male and female accruements, and in many ways is at the essence of being civil.

Personally I think Gentlemen buying their loved one a pair of beautiful stockings is a lovely idea.

In the summer Gentlemans Butler visited Wolford’s headquarters in Bregenz in Austria.
