I don't -- never have, and I hope I never will. I am apparently quite typical for my generation, according to today's WSJ:
For women who entered the work force before the 1990s, hose were considered as necessary as underwear. But many twentysomethings have never worn panty hose at all.
The fashion shift has left some baby boomer managers feeling that their hose make them look frumpy. Kathy Garland, the 54-year-old chairwoman of the Northern Dallas area for the National Association of Women Business Owners, says she finally threw out a bag full of hose last week. An executive coach herself, she noticed a few years ago that she was the only woman wearing hose at a formal business fund-raiser. "Younger women don't even think about panty hose," she says.
Although the column ponders whether ties are the male sartorial equivalent of pantyhose, I call shenanigans on that. Comfort is not the primary issue; cost is. Last time I checked, men weren't rolling their eyes because their repp tie had just gotten a run in it. Pantyhose are a ripoff and I'm glad to see them falling out of style.
