Stockings.

Van Raalte Nylon Stockings

Van Raalte has always been Known for there Elegance, Feminine touch and sexy apparel.
One of the leading United States manufactures of Nylon Stockings in the 1950s as well
as through the mid 70s. Van Raalte Stockings were synonymous with the stay strait
seam, Ultra sheer appearance do to the use of Ultra Thin monofilament nylon
thread, and the Patented Famous Welt styling. Some of many famous
welt styles were: "Nines" which had the Nines Cat printed in Pastel colors,
The FRIVOL which Had a Delicate Lace Trim on the top of the Welt, Wisp with the
Ultra Feminine welt consisting of multiple Cross stitching and My favorite the
"Flex Tops" which had a Pleated welt.

All of the Van Raalte Nylon Stockings are silky smooth and posses that Filmy sheen
no modern stocking can duplicate.

Albert's

Made by Albert's and Distributed by Albert's Hosiery Stores, INC, New York, NY 10036 in the 1960s through 1980s. I have traveled across the United States to locate and purchase as many Vintage Nylon Stockings that I could find and most of this lot was purchased in Texas at a close out of one of Albert's stores and the remainder were bought over the years at a distribution center in Brooklyn, NY. Included in this special lot is BARE-FOOT stockings (Nude heel and Toe), SANDALA (Reinforced Toe area) and one of the Rarest and maybe the only one's left in the world, Albert's BARE-FOOT seamed nylon stockings in the blackest of black's, Jet Black. This unique stocking has a seam that runs from the welt all the way to the toe area, is ultra sheer utilizing 15 Denier Flat nylon thread at 51 Gauge and produced Flat Knit. The "BARE-FOOT" Seamless Albert's stockings are also a very rare item in that the foot is completely nude, a design for that open toe and heel shoe and was only available for a short time in the late 1980's till the P word came out.
Pantyhose

Hanes pantyhose.

The "P" word

The ā€œPā€ word, and I hate to say it but you know what it is, Pantyhose were the demise of many businesses across the country. This horrible thing has not only lasted longer than Stockings, but since it was so easy to make once new fibers were invented any one with a machine could make them at a high rate. Now almost all Pantyhose are manufactured and packaged over seas including famous manufactures like Hanes, Berkshire and probably any brand you could think of.
