    If you google "who invented tights" you will get all sorts of answers...dublet and hose the hose part being tights and that is a long time ago... Henry V111 wore them but obviously not as we know them. Aristoc started marketing them in the 50's but IIRC they did not gain popularity over here until the late sixties (certainly not with Lady S) with the introduction of the mini-skirt invented by Mary Quant so realistically we can blame her for it. Ironically I do believe that if stockings had been longer (they barely went above the knee in those days) as they are now tights may never have been so popular. Lady S still wears her skirts well above the knee but Gio's are long enough to get away with it. Yes it was fantastic and yes any kind of hosiery IS better than the alternative.

    I was and it was...heaven. Tights had not been invented and bare legs or trousers were a definite no no.
