Since we first looked at these tights, they have changed the design a little, they no longer quite look like the picture on the packet. The detailing at the waist now looks like this, with considerably more shaping to the waistband.
That knot on the packet isn’t an initiation test for the Scouts, nor is it an extract from a training manual for sailors. It is an enlarged detail of the way these tights are knitted. It’s Kunert’s answer to the problem of runs in tights.
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.
