Yes, there are tights made for men as well as unisex tights. The range of men's tights has expanded greatly in recent years and more manufacturers are designing and marketing men's tights as part of their product range.
Is it okay for men to wear women's tights? The quality and sizing options in many brands of women's tights has improved greatly and many men are happy to buy tights made for women when they know the quality and fit will be right.
Many manufacturers are aware that their tights are popular with men and ensure that their sizing choices are more generous. I would recommend Wolford, Falke and Kunert in particular as the sizing options are generous and they provide a great fit for taller people. Don't be put off by packaging that is aimed at women.
It's the quality of the tights that counts. How should I wash my tights? Some people wash their tights after every wear. But it's okay to wear them a few times and then wash them if that suits. The important thing is to wash them with care and not damage them. The best way is to wash by hand. Take your tights, turn them inside out and soak them in a sink or bowl of lukewarm water.
Add a small amount of laundry detergent or hosiery wash ; the best kind is the type made for delicates or for hand washing. Let the tights soak for half an hour to an hour. Now rinse and rinse again with cool or cold water until there are no more suds. Squeeze them gently to remove water. Do not wring them dry as this can damage the tights. Hang them to dry in your shower. Don't put them on top of a hot radiator or in the spin dryer as this can also damage the yarns in the tights.
You can also wash tights in the washing machine. If you do this you will need to place them in a special hosiery wash bag. Make sure also that you wash them on a delicates cycle at a low temperature.
