This item was a gift for a friend so I can't comment on the quality or the fit. I was pleased it arrived wrapped in good tissue paper but when it was opened in my presence, the box was illustrated with a female model wearing them! I think it would have been better to repackage them in line with the Moot website.
Hi Ann, We totally understand your point and it is one that we would love to not have to face! The tricky thing for us is that there are absolutely no B2B suppliers who produce great legwear with men as the target market, so we select products, test them for fit, re shoot our pics for the website and make sure that they work well. There are no UK hosiery manufacturers for us to go to, and we are a long way off being able to budget to create all our own secondary packaging (meaning that we would have to discard the primary packaging which creates such a lot of waste) We will always remove a packing sleeve where it still means the product is protected, and wrap in our tissue paper. We include a postcard which explains that we don't (yet!) have our own Moot hosiery production but that we are trying our hardest to create a climate where it will be easier for men to see themselves represented and valued as customers who sometimes might also want to wear tights and stockings! Anyway, thank you for your order and we really hope that the packaging disappointment was short-lived.
