Gray Seamed Stockings
(Nurses, DRK, Helferin & Military Personnel)
Vintage new old stock fully fashioned gray seamed stockings that have never been worn.
Vintage stockings are sized (they are not a one-size fits all) - we have two sizes available:
Size 9 (which should fit a US shoe size 6 1/2 to 7 1/2)
Size 10 (which should fit a US shoe size 8 1/2 to 9 1/2).
Gray stockings are much harder to come by than the tan/nude colored stockings. Gray stockings were worn by nurses and military personnel (both US and German - DRK and helferin are often seen in photographs wearing gray) as well as for civilian use.
These are made just like they were in the 1940s, except they are a more durable nylon material - perfect for reenactments, with a little added strength (although they are still delicate)! These stockings are meant to be worn with a garter belt - you can't wear them without one.
They are new old stock; they came from the warehouse of a store that went out of business years ago. They may have very minor imperfections, but nothing that detracts from the appearance or usefulness.
STOCKINGS ARE DELICATE! The material is quite thin; they will run if not handled properly. Be careful not to get your fingernails caught in the material.
Some have US markings, some have no markings.
