820 Opaque style, to complement the existing 810 Cotton Opaques we already carry. The new model is available in six colours (yes, 6!); Black, Beige, Brown, Khaki, White and Red (the latter being the result of customer requests) and comes in one size, to fit up to 36" waist, 6Ft height and 33" inside leg. The fabric is a soft 200 denier microfibre (but don't be fooled by the high denier figure; they aren't as thick or heavy as you might think - in fact they are really almost semi-opaque) comprising 86% nylon, & 14% elastane. They have a male centre panel with two flat seams (one either side), and there is a reinforcing band at the top of the leg (just visible on the right of the pictures) and at the toes. They are amazingly comfortable - they feel really soft when worn. They offer excellent value-for-money at £6.99 a pair.
840 Control-top style (to help keep an errant bum or tummy in control!) and is available in Black, Brown and Beige. They come in one size that cover the same size ranges as the Opaques, and are in a semi-sheer (or semi-opaque, depending on your point of view!) 50 denier fabric, comprising 87% nylon and 13% elastane. They have a series of reinforced panels in the back and front of the brief, and the 'boxer' brief has an extended reinforced area (which extends further down the leg than normal - similar to the ComfiLon 582's) which is graduated; the patterns formed by the reinforced areas are just visible in the close-up details in the photo. Because of the nature of control-tops, we had to dispense with the male centre panel and have just one (flat) seam in the centre, with a cotton/nylon diamond-shaped gusset underneath to give room for the male 'equipment'! This has worked well though - they are very comfortable, but the extra 'support' or 'containment' for the derrier is noticeable, so all in all, we have a result! They also represent excellent value for money at £7.99 per pair (the greater complexity in knitting the control brief adding a little to the cost).
