This book traces the evolution of fashionable legwear from the cloth hose of Tudor times, through the hand-knitted stockings of the Elizabethan period to the tights and legwarmers of today. Fashion trends are seen against a background of technological and social change. The text is illustrated by a range of photographs, with extended captions which show examples from many sources and all periods of history.
