Who’s buying all the pre-ripped tights?

OK, time to ‘fess up, folks: almost every retail site we look at these days seems to be carrying some variation of the pre-ripped tights pictured above, and we just have to know – who’s actually buying them? Is it you? Because if we’d known people were willing to spend £10 on laddered hosiery, we’d have emptied out our sock drawers long ago and be writing this from a deckchair in the Carribean on the proceeds. And, OK, we get that some of you like the laddered look, but wouldn’t it be a whole lot cheaper to just ladder your own?

Do you buy pre-laddered tights? Do you want to buy pre-laddered tights? If you do, click here and here for the ones shown above…

    I don’t like the whole trashy look in general, but I suppose there are some people who find it “edgy”. And if they happen to have more money than the average DIY addict, then probably that’s the result.
