I have written two previous reviews of Comfort4Men tights for men on Hosiery For Men. They have both received a huge number of page views, so it looks like they have been useful to readers.
Comfort4Men men's tights are made in Germany. If you look at the background information on their website you will see that immense care and considerable time has gone into designing and developing a high quality product that provides an extraordinary level of comfort and fit for the male anatomy. These tights are genuinely tights made specifically for men; not women's tights repackaged for men nor unisex tights.
I have been extremely impressed with the Comfort4Men men's tights that I have tested so far. You can read my reviews of 60 Denier Luxury Men's Tights and the 70 Denier Opaque Tights.
Comfort4Men have sent me a further style for review: the 80 Denier Opaque Tights. These are part of the Comfort4Men range of men's opaque tights.
Choosing Comfort4Men tights
As I have previously written, choosing tights from Comfort4Men is always a different experience compared with buying tights online elsewhere. Each pair of Comfort4Men tights have different features that need to be considered.
For example, when choosing the 80 Denier Opaque Tights the first choice is whether they will be in high waist or low waist styles.
Then there is a choice of four colours: Black, Anthracite, Jeans or Natur.
The tights are also available with or without a fly opening. Theere is also a choice of gusset colour: Black of Skin.
Finally, there is a choice of sizes: 4, 5, or 6.
That makes a total of 96 possible combinations for the 80 Denier Opaque Tights!
The final choice I made was:
- Style: C404M (80 Denier Opaque Tights)
- High waist
- Colour: nature
- Gusset colour: Black
- Fly opening
- Size: 6
Materials and features
The 80 Denier Opaque Tights come in a cellophane sealed bag with cardstock liner.
The 80 denier opaque style is made from 90% Nylon and 10% Elastane (3D Lycra).
The overall appearance of the fabric is opaque, although somewhat less so where the material is stretched slightly more, such as on the thigh. The tights are completely matt with no shine at all.
The material is much less soft to the touch than the 60 Denier Luxury Men's Tights and 70 Denier Opaque Tights that have been reviewed previously.
There is a decent amount of stretch but again, perhaps less so than the previously reviewed styles.
As with all Comfort4Men tights, the waistband is very comfortable. The brief, which has a rear comfort panel, has plenty of room.
The crotch/gusset is constructed from different materials as can be seen in the picture above: a satiny fabric at the top and an extremely soft, stretchy material called Oeko-Tex. The fly opening, as in all Comfort4Men tights is extremely well-designed and provides easy access when required.
Fit and sizing
The 80 Denier Opaque Tights come in three sizes 4, 5, and 6.
I tested these tights in size 6 and the fit was very good. However, while these tights are an excellent product, I actually prefer the two styles I reviewed previously. In terms of sizing, I am not sure the 80 denier opaques would have stretched a great deal more than my 5'10" (178cm). The very soft and satiny textures of the 60 Denier Luxury Men's Tights and 70 Denier Opaque Tights also felt much more comfortable on the skin than the 80 denier style.
The 80 Denier Opaque Tights are available in four colours: Black, Anthracite, Jeans or Natur.
The Natur shade that I tested is a creamy beige colour.
Price and availability
The 80 Denier Opaque Tights cost €37.70 plus shipping. Shipping rates vary depending on the destination.
I previously suggested that the Comfort4Men 60 Denier Luxury Men's Tights deserved a five star rating, if I provided a such a system on this blog (maybe I should - let me know readers). I would award the 80 Denier Opaque Tights slightly less at four and a half stars.
The plus points are the excellent overall design and styling for men, comfortable fit and the matt appearance which makes them suitable for 'stealth' wear under trousers or jeans.
However, I preferred the softer fabrics used in the 60 Denier Luxury Men's Tights and 70 Denier Opaque Tights and personally found these styles more comfortable. But the 80 denier opaques are great tights for men all the same.
I can only recommend readers to visit the Comfort4Men website and shop. The range of products there is very wide and you are sure to find something that meets your needs.
