Reviewed: Comfort4Men 60 Denier "Geometric Pattern" Men's Tights

Comfort4Men men's tights are made in Germany to the very highest standards. They are a high quality product specifically designed to provide an excellent fit and level of comfort for the male anatomy.



Earlier this year we were sent some of their recently launched new products, including the

C437M Comfort4Men 60 denier "Geometric Pattern" Tights.



Here is our review.

Packaging

The C437M Comfort4Men 60 denier "Geometric Pattern" Tights are packaged in the customary Comfort4Men style: a card enclosure wrapped in a cellophane sleeve.







Material and features


The C437M Comfort4Men 60 denier "Geometric Pattern" Tights are are part of Comfort4Men's extensive range of patterned tights for men. This range is growing steadily and now includes:


  • Fine stripe tights
  • Baroque pattern tights
  • Colour gradient/bicolour tights
  • Woven pattern tights
  • Cashmere and viscose tights
  • Fashion dots tights
  • Diamond pattern tights
  • Melange and black dots tights
The C437M Comfort4Men 60 denier "Geometric Pattern" Tights are available for purchase in the low waist version only. However, for this review Comfort4Men made me a high waist version. But note that this is not available for purchase. This review will therefore nor completely reflect the product currently available in respect of the brief/panty and waist.

The "Geometric Pattern" style is available in Blue/Black and Gray/Black shades.

The sample provided for review by Comfort4Men had the following features:

High waist
Colour: Gray/Black
Gusset colour: Black
Fly opening: No
Size: 6



The "Geometric Pattern" style is made from 85% Polyamide and 15% Elastane.

The yarn is extremely soft and the tights are warm, with great insulation.


Opacity is very dense for 60 denier. The tights cover and make invisible any leg hair or blemishes. Appearance is matt with just a slight hint of shine.

The colour in the Gray/Black shade I trialled is mainly grey with the pattern accentuated in darker grey/black.

The "geometric" pattern is very attractive. As can be seen in the photos the pattern is unusual in not repeating in a predictable way. It is certainly eye-catching.





The "geometric" pattern does not extend to the waist. It ends at the top of the thigh. The brief/panty is plain grey.




The waistband is 3cm. The brief has a single seam and no rear comfort panel. Seams are flat throughout.

As with all Comfort4Men men's tights there is the signature front gusset in the black colour which is perfectly designed for the male anatomy.

It seems that the toes have a light reinforcement through a variation of the pattern.



  

Sizing, fit and wearing experience


The C437M Comfort4Men 60 denier "Geometric Pattern" Tights are available in three sizes: 4, 5 and 6.



I tested a size 6.

As with the "Diamond Pattern" tights from Comfort4Men, which we reviewed recently, the leg length looked slightly short when taken from the packaging. However the tights have excellent elasticity and stretch.

You must take great care twhen putting these tights on. The fabric in the patterned areas is somewhat delicate. I caught them on a fingernail and created a small hole. I luckily managed to do a repair.

On the leg they feel unbelievably soft, and the wearing experience is very comforting.

The fit in the size 6 was perfect for me.

I must mention the signature male gusset which is a feature of all Comfort4Men men's tights. This is such a great innovation and it provides superb support for the male anatomy. The material used is exceptionally soft. If you find conventional tights made for women less than comfortable, do give these a try.





Colour range


The C437M Comfort4Men 60 denier "Geometric Pattern" Tights are available in two shades:

  • Blue/Black
  • Gray/Black
We trialled them in the Gray/Black colour.

  

Price and availability

The C437M Comfort4Men 60 denier "Geometric Pattern" Tights are are available to order directly from Comfort4Men.

The low waist style is priced at €40.90.

Conclusion

This is the second style of patterned tights from Comfort4Men that we have reviewed. You can still read our review of the Comfort4Men 50 denier "Diamond Pattern" Men's Tights.

The "Geometric Pattern" is really unique and innovative, and one for guys who are looking something stylish and different.

Fit and wearing experience and first class. Just be careful when putting them on,

Thanks again to Comfort4Men for the sample and the great support they provide to Hosiery For Men.
