What Katie Did

A stocking for every occasion? Well, they haven’t yet brought out a Tweed Seam (The Chap will be the first to inform you when they do) but as a one-stop-shop for luxury hosiery to match any outfit, the ladies at What Katie Did know a thing or two about dressing for an occasion. As well as their huge selection of beautiful vintage inspired lingerie and shapewear (which incidentally makes a wonderful gift to any special ladies in your life), What Katie Did’s Glamour Seamed Stockings are available in a rainbow of colours and leg shades to suit any outfits – and yes, they are the ones you’ve been seeing on retro lovelies everywhere from the Goodwood Revival to The Chap Olympiad.

If you’re looking for something a little special, then you should know that What Katie Did also supply super-luxe Fully Fashioned Nylons to the most stylish ladies-about-town. Still made on vintage Reading machines from supersoft yarn and individually stitched together using the seam to create the stocking, Fully Fashioneds are the ultimate in legwear lavishness.
Of course, whether you’re shopping for yourself or someone worth impressing, we can all do with a helping hand. Drop in on the What Katie Did ladies at their boutique off Portobello Road, or give them a call to discuss perfecting the fit of your underpinnings – and we’ll keep you updated on that Tweed Seam. . .
