* Elegant seamed nylons with a deep red wine seam
* Perfect for livening up a '50s style grey suit or little black dress
* Classic 15 denier seamed nylons with a translucent champagne leg and maroon point heel, seam and welt
* Made from stretch nylon and elastane for ease of fit
* Made in Italy, the home of traditional hosiery manufacturing
If red wine is close to your heart then these are the perfect seamed stockings for you. They add a sophisticated touch, coordinating with muted colours such as grey, fawn and black plus of course, any deep red outfits you have in your wardrobe.
As far as we're aware, no other hosiery manufacturer is making nylons with a deep red seam so if you see anyone else wearing them give them a little nod as they'll be fellow fans of What Katie Did.
The welt on these nylons is nice and wide which is more authentic to the 1950s and more more flattering and comfortable on curvier legs.
I bought the Ruby satine show girl knickers and bra for my girlfriend for Valentine's Day and as we had a night booked in a hotel for her birthday thought she should have the set and bought the suspender belt and the claret seamed stockings. She was particularly knocked out with the latter, which matched perfectly the Seamstress of Bloomsbury clarice dress she wore - have to say she looked magnificently naughty in the whole rig - the ruby satine set is one of Katie's best recent lines

Absolutely gorgeous colour - really special. The jury is out for me on the wider welt though. Having worn M/L forever in WKD, that's what I bought in all the colours but they were quite generous from the start. Then, as the day went on, the stocking tops stretched further... I will try the S/M size next time (for the first time) though I don't know what to do with all my other pairs! For ref, I'm 5'7" and 130 lbs so within both ranges...

Having worn the contrast seamed stockings with the narrower welt in other colours, I'm pleased these wider welts are more comfortable but not to the extent I'll stop wearing my other narrower welt pairs. The wider welt is more comfortable around the thigh and does not roll. The Claret colour is lovely and impossible to find in Canada. These are an excellent find, and satisfactorily durable. I have garment bags for all my delicates, and along with a gentle cycle on the washer(do NOT use fabric softener) and hang-drying these seamed stockings do just fine and I get multiple wearings out of them. They would undoubtedly last even longer if I hand-washed them like I do for my 100% nylon ones.

Very sexy red wine seamed stockings wife has the perfect leather maroon miniskirt she wants to wear
on a girls night out she knows they do come up high when worn with one of her 8 strap garter belts
so no problem of tops showing when she walks she already has got a few of her friends wearing seams
now on girls night out I am looking forward to her wearing them great fit and look
