Sock Horror! Acne’s $200 Tantra-print tights

Tantra on your tights

A few points about this item:

1. These are tights.

2. $209 tights.

3. $209 tights that you just KNOW you’re going to ladder as soon as you put them on, don’t you? Or that your cat/dog/toddler will ladder for you?

4. They have writing on them.

5. So they’ll encourage people to stare really hard at your thighs in order to try and work out what that writing says.

6. Do you REALLY want everyone you meet staring at your thighs? If so, congratulations: you obviously have amazing thighs!

7. Did we mention this is a $209 pair of tights we’re looking at? Are there seriously people in the world who pay $200 for TIGHTS? Who are these people? We’d seriously be fascinated to meet them…

Are you One of Those People, readers? If so, head over to Shopbop: your tantra tights await you!

    I stumbled across these a couple of weeks ago… the price of these “hand crafted” leggings are a little silly!!!

    What exactly are the drawings supposed to be? The one directly left of the crotch looks like a penis to me…

      I can see a trend forming: this isn’t the first time someone’s spotted a penis in this location:

    Moni: I swear there’s a diagram of the respiratory system above the knee.

    Those are not tights. Those are STIRRUP TIGHTS.

    They are not selling the stirrup, though. They are selling the writing print. However, that must mean that the stirrup has now become so acceptable that it is not worth noting.

    In conclusion, AAAAAAAAAA!!!

    $200 for tights? No. $200 for jeans? Yes. Seriously, even the really nice Wolford tights aren’t that much.

      Wait..200$ jeans? I get cranky if I have to pay 40$. And my tights had better be, at most, 10$. As for stirrups..I stopped wearing those at 6.
      I hate fashion.
