the look for less: music legs vs. falke

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Well, I was going to write an introduction for my upcoming event, Fishnet Stockings week, but I’ve found something better to talk about instead. As you can tell from the title, this entry is the fourth in a series. In all of my previous “Look for less” posts, I’ve had to settle for finding a similar item, something which carried the same theme even if it wasn’t expressed in the same way. This time, however, I’ve found a budget item with the exact same pattern as the luxury one…

Now I won’t insult your intelligence by asking you to identify which is the more expensive pair of tights; Falke’s advertising campaigns are much too obvious for that. However, I am downright flabbergasted at how the Music Legs Zurich tights on the left look exactly the same as the more expensive Falke Renaissance tights on the right.

Unfortunately (or perhaps, fortunately), because the Falke Renaissance tights are on sale, the price disparity isn’t so great as it once was. All the same, this post reminds me that Falke, Wolford, La Perla and the other high end names are not the be all, end all of fashion. There are great deals to be had, if you’re just willing to look.

    Given the quality of music legs I’d probably just as soon stick with the Falke (especially with them on sale). I’ve yet to find a pair of music legs that havent torn on their first wear.

    I’ve always been happy with Falke’s quality, on the other hand.

    When it’s only a few dollars difference separating the two, I can’t disagree with you.

    I was just flabbergasted they were the exact same pattern.

    Are those your legs?

    Nope. As of right now, there are no photos of my legs in my blog. However, I’ve been considering changing that…if for no other reason than that it helpful to see how stockings look on someone who isn’t a leg model.
