Yes, there is a true story behind these special stockings, and it finally needs to be told. StockinGirl, in 1997, copied these stockings from my personal US vintage hosiery collection of over 10,000 pairs of original stockings. These stockings hadn't been made in fifty years. We went to a factory that had the machines to make these, but they had never seen the United States versions of these stockings. We sent them samples of our vintage stock. They replicated our samples in modern sizes. We added modern color combinations. They had never made these color combinations nor had they ever made these stockings, but we taught them how. We were the original designers, and we are proud because they are lovely. So if you want these stockings with contrasting asting colors, lovely feel, beautiful contrasting line in the welt.... you are welcome. We designed them, we took the risk on this style becoming popular in modern times, we purchased ordered large quantities in color combinations that had never been done before. Now, you may find replicas of our designs other places, and that is sad because when we were a tiny company it was important that our designs remain exclusive to us. Water under the bridge I guess. So if you desire t the authentic StockinGirl Reinforced Heel and Toe stockings with contrast tops, you will find them with us. Our dramatic and beautiful retro-inspired bi-color stockings have a contrast top welt which is an authentic detail from the 1950's. Darcy stockings are true reproductions of a popular vintage stockings style complete with dark heel and toe reinforcements.
Purchase the originals, buy the history, and from people that risked a lot to reproduce these stockings in modern times. All because of our love and passion for vintage stockings. Yes we're proud, and yes you will love them.
