I am all about my tights


I am all about tights!

I wear them almost throughout the year.

I cannot get enough of them!


Tabio 150 denier tights in white cream

But I am fussy! I only buy tights from a handful of places and at the very top of my list is Tabio. I often get questions and complements a plenty on my tights and my answer is pretty regular... "GO TO TABIO!"

I have been shopping at the Covent Garden branch for years and I am always delighted with the quality of the items that I buy. When it comes to tights I tend to mainly buy the 110, 150 and 210 denier options as they are ever so warm and comfortable and soft to touch. Tabio tights are not cheap in quality or price but once you invest you are rewarded with cherishable lasting items.

The people at Tabio are persnickety (in a good way) about their goodies. Their products are created using the traditions and rigorous standards associated with Japanese craftsmanship.

"The production process is highly sophisticated and undergo a series of meticulous tested to guarantee undisputable quality.
"

Tights are not my only obsession at with Tabio, their sock are mighty fine too though I shall leave showing you my collection for next time. I will be a loyal fan for as long as they keep churning out such appealing socks and tights and wot nots!

    I love faux leather (pleather?) leggings for sure but soft tights in this horrid Brit winter really does it for me. Yah I get a lot of looks with my cream tights but I am so used to it now :)

  7. Tabio needs to ship to Canada :(

    You make me think of tights instantly! I was tweeting about them to Yumeko and Christine and they were both like, "you should ask Yasumi", and then I did, and then I realised the site didn't ship to Canada and I have severe brand envy now. I don't even care that it's now -20C here and probably too cold even with TWO layers of tights but I want them anyway! I have been buying tall boots in preparation for tights and skirts this winter!!

    Actually on a related note while I was making my dream basket ON Tabio (envisioning that I lived in a country they'd ship to) I automatically added a cream pair... must have been you subconsciously as I don't know anyone else that wears them! I recently learned to layer tights for warmth but now I kind of want to try an all black outfit with black patterned tights over bright ones...

    This requires buying more tights! Ah ha. I would LOOOOVE 210 Dernier tights in a raspberry pink. Warm AND obnoxiously bright. For me, anyway.

  11. My legs are fat (what you'd call thick) and I always used to hate wearing tights because I thought they made my legs look fatter. However, since I've started work, I always wear tights because I noticed that they make my legs look a lot slimmer in pictures. The only problem I have is that they tend to rip easily due to the fat legs, I hope Tabio have something for people who "suffer" like me. I'll be checking them out the next time I go clothes shopping.

  16. it's great when one finds a brand that gets them. makes great product, great store environment, high quality at the right price year in year out.

    by reading this, i can deduce that your love for tabio is equaled to my love for the panama diary from smythons of bond street. once you get one, that's it. you're hooked. year after year, it's my christmas ritual to go down there and next year's. it's brilliant!

  17. Oh wow. What an exciting collection of Hosiery!

    I'm loving how you rock the mustard yellow and the brogues. =) I'm really boring, it's either nude or black for me. But I do have preferences for black tights. Sainsbury Tu super soft range of tights are AMAZING! They feel so snuggly.
