Jean Paul Gaultier’s $135 sheer-front tights: would you buy them?

Jean-paul-gaultier

Would you pay $135 for tights? ANY tights? That would be a "no" from us: not just because your Fashion Police are sadly accident prone, and therefore guaranteed to ladder them the first time we wore them anyway, but also because we just know that Topshop/American Apparel/Urban Outfitters can probably be relied upon to bring out a much cheaper version, saving us around $130.

These particular tights, however, are from Jean Paul Gaultier's pre-fall collection, and they come with a sheer panel to the front and opaque bands to either side. They look like they'd probably be wonderfully slimming on the leg, but we're still not totally on board with them. If you are, they're also available in black, with a fishnet panel to the front, and you can buy them now from Neiman Marcus. (The dress, by the way, is also JPG, and is $495)

What do you think of them?
