We had to tell them that these were the only ones we were wearing. Then we took them to another place and bought more. It was only in the 1930s that the public began wearing a uniform, that was when the British people started using white tights.
What was the reaction of the girls when they found out you were the person who was giving them tights?
The reaction was, “What? You’re that old man in tights?” And they came to me and told us, “There’s a new one for girls.” That was in 1939. It was called the “Pee Pee Sweater.” So if you go to a department store in New York or Philadelphia or Miami, you have a chance of having a petticoat just right like that.

It’s very simple to do and you don’t need a pair of glasses or goggles, and it doesn’t seem like a lot of fuss.

I think they’re more than ever. It’s not just the tights that will be in demand, but people are interested in how comfortable the materials were or how long they lasted and how much skin you get exposed in them.
