4′ Medium Support Hosiery For Tall People

The manufacturer has been able to make medium support hosiery for tall people. It is designed for men in general, but should accommodate women too. It will be 4′; long from the toe to the gusset. This should be long enough for most tall people, without stretching. Taller people can wear it, with stretching.

Your foot is probably over a foot long, if you are a tall person. That takes up 12″, which leaves 36″ of material. That means you would have an inseam of 36″ or more. I am 5′6″ tall, and I have a 30″ inseam. My size 6.5 feet are about 12″ long, so 6′ tall people should fit in this just fine.

I would like to get a feel for how many of you are interested in this kind of thing. It could cost around $20/pair, because of how difficult it is to make, and sell. It actually requires more manual labour than normal short hosiery.

Thank you for reading!
