Jonathan Aston Product Reviews
Jonathan Aston is one of the best names affordably in the legwear sector. They are superb at bringing both the classics and something new and interesting to the fashion scene with wonderful colours and creativity. Jonathan Aston is neither an everyday legwear designer nor is it a fashion tights designer. Jonathan Aston is both of these things and yet is so much more.
Jonathan Aston Fashion Tights
Jonathan Aston’s fashion tights are wonderful in their ability to bring the timeless classics to life with a great dose of inventiveness and beauty too. Lace tights are a big feature of their fashion range, as are the always beautiful and welcome seamed tights. But they are never just the conventional kind of legwear either. Seamed tights with a contrast seam (available in pink, purple, red, blue) are a fine example of how they enhance existing classics and make them their own. Jonathan Aston fashion hold-ups are the same, with so much creativity heaped onto existing timeless pieces that we can’t believe how much can be done with a design we thought were already perfect.
Jonathan Aston Classics
Jonathan Aston also makes classic tights such as their Sheer Coloured Tights range. They are simple and plain sheer tights made in nearly every shade you can imagine. And of course, they do a semi-opaque coloured tights version, as Jonathan Aston is insistent on being able to provide choice and variety to every one of their fans. Their everyday tights and classic tights designs are some of the best quality, most affordable and best-loved tights in the whole legwear industry.
When we saw the word “Leopard” in the name of these tights, our first reaction was “Oh dear not another ghastly leopard print”. But then we saw “Tulle” and realised that the what we could expect was a lace design with leopard styling, an altogether classier proposition.
We usually start our reviews by looking at how a pair of tights is made and then go on to the sizing, fit and overall look. This time for reasons that will become obvious, we are turning the whole process on its head
Jonathan Aston tights are very well made these days. They come in 3 sizes as you would expect of quality Italian hosiery. But perhaps best of all, from a reviewer at least, quite a few of the designs don’t quite work.
The title of one of the Jonathan Aston Collections for Autumn/Winter 2011 is “On Show”, and the show is from Las Vegas with this the signature style and others being named after Vegas casino favourites such as Blackjack and Poker.
Jonathan Aston has come on immensely as hosiery brand in the last few years. The current talk of the hosiery world is their FAST Collection.
If you are as old as our webmaster, it is quite likely that as a child, you had a Fairisle pattern pullover in your childhood.
Jonathan Aston has had a few misses with their designs over the years, but recently they got their act together and are matching House of Holland both in terms of style and quality.
When we first saw these tights, we remembered that in the past, we had seen Houndstooth Tights from Jonathan Aston, so what is the difference? Well, it seems that these dogs have smaller teeth!
First impressions on opening the packet are that of sheer tights with straight legs and a boxer style brief that look much longer than typical tights
Jonathan Aston has been inspired recently offering some great designs, and this season with names like Freeze and Arctic tights.
