This weekend I bought some Capezio MT-11 tights. Getting ready for class this evening I pulled them out, thinking they're the same as the ones I've been wearing. They're not. They're far better than the MT-10 tights which ripped the first time I put them on, but they're not the same.
The tag in the tights is next to useless, giving brand, size and care but not model number. The only bit of packaging left over was a tag with the trademark Meryl on it, so I went hunting. I think I found them: Capezio 5945. Finally! Except... Capezio has discontinued style 5945. I can still find them in left-over stock, but it's still a bummer. I think I finally understand what women feel like when they find a bra that's comfortable only to discover that it's been discontinued.
I'm going to class tonight in the MT-11s to see how they hold up. I may have to get XL in the MT-11, even though I'm wearing a Medium in the old tights. I'll let ya know!
Edit: The Capezio website now lists style 5945 tights. At the time this posting was originally written, the only style of men's tights that appeared on the Capezio website were style MT-11. I have not purchased any new 5945 tights yet.
'nother edit: As described here I purchased two pair of Capezio 5945 tights in size L. They're great: soft and comfortable. All of the MT-11s are now stuffed in a drawer "for emergency use only".
Yet another update (20-Jun-2012): The 5945s have disappeared from the Capezio website again, and most of the on-line shops I looked at either say they're out of stock or don't list them at all. I guess they're really gone now.
