Gerbe Enigme Tights

Gerbe Enigme Tights

Note: At the time of writing, we are still a few weeks away from seeing these tights on sale. But they feature all that we like from Gerbe; their very conformable waistband, flat seams and silk lined gusset. Many thanks to our model for posing for a few photos to let you see what they are like.

Gerbe Enigme Tights are something you should check out!

There was no sizing on the packaging of our pre-production sample and taking them out of the packet these tights looked quite short. Of course, we had no information on the fibre content either but stretching them in our hands they pulled very well; so we guess there is at least 10% Lycra. The test sample was a perfect fit for one of our tallest testers; as you can see in the pictures. We have no reason to think that the sizing is any less accurate than is usual for Gerbe.

These tights, as is usual for Gerbe, are made with cotton-lined gusset and flat seams, legs are straight, and heels are shaped.

The design feature of these tights is the thin stripe pattern going all the way up from the reinforced toes to the lovely 2 cm deep Gerbe-waistband.

The lacy material and the stripe-pattern mean you have to take extra care with putting them on; so as not to get snags or the pattern twisting around the leg. The effort is well worth it because the fit is excellent and they look stunning. The feel on the leg inside and outside is a little coarse, but that is made up for by the elegant look.

We have no idea yet what colours they will be sold in but the colour of the grey pair we tested looked very smart. Great tights for showing off when autumn comes! So at least there is something to look forward to even when summer comes to an end!

Watch out for them!
