Anyone know who makes a good custom pair of mens' tights? I think I spent too much time climbing and running stairs this year, b/c I've bought 3 pairs of tights for the fall, and w/ each one, I've blown out the calves. Here's another problem . . . I'm onlyt 5'4", and I can't wear anything bigger than a medium without rolling them, and even then, the waist and seat are too loose. Let me know. Thanks.

I'd love to have your problem.

Why don't you try mid-length tights, or better yet, leg warmers. Then, the butt fit won't matter.

I've never heard of custom tights. Best bet might be to buy too big, and have them altered locally.

Or, go buy some size large knickers. :-D

Boure will make custom sizes for 25% more than a stock size.

Their stuff has been good for me.

There's a lady that made custom bib shorts for a friend of mine. She'll probably make tights too. The only thing is that last time I tried to call, the line didn't work. I'll give the number anyway, along with the address on the business card. I don't even know if she's still in business, but it's worth a shot.

The reason the phone doesn't work is because they haven't got a line to the afterlife. About a month ago, someone posted that these people had met their maker.
