Best of British: Proper Pride by Stockleigh Hosiery Co Ltd

Considering how prolific ‘Proper Pride’ slips and nighties used to be (I have scores of them in stock, many still in original packaging) there is a real dearth of information available about this significant British manufacturer.

Although Stockleigh Hosiery Co Ltd had offices in London it seems they had a factory in Bedford, at least they did in the 1950’s.

One thought on “Best of British: Proper Pride by Stockleigh Hosiery Co Ltd

  1. I always wondered if this company was in some way connected to Aristoc. Back in the 1980s I acquired some vintage Stockleigh nylons. They were high quality as only genuine vintage stockings can be. They incorporated a ladder stop consisting of a double row of perforations in the shadow welt, identical to Aristoc Harmony, then still in production.
    Today the machines on which Aristoc Harmony were produced are owned by Gio who are producing fully fashioned stockings with that same feature.
    I own and have owned quite a number of pairs of vintage stockings produced by various manufacturers but I’ve never seen that feature on any except Stockleigh.
