    Im glad I've come across this thread as I have failed in the past. My OH is 6' with 34" legs and has the same problem. If there are any other ideas I'd like to know too.

    I'm not overly tall (5'5) but I like my stockings to sit high on my leg.

    Personally I find that Leg Avenue do the best long stockings. Plus they have a nice deep stocking top which keeps them looking smooth.

    A couple of personal favourites are the Cuban Heel 2 Tone Stockings and the nude Cuban Heel Stockings

    Alternatively you could try a pair of suspender tights like the Sheer All-in-one suspender tights

    Ladies may i sugegst you try a dedicated stockings site that has a range of sizes? My partner is 6.1'' and never struggles with either holdups or fully fashioned / rht nylons.

    certain brands are better than others...... Cervin, Gio, Falke, to name a few... or Eleganti are her current favourites...

    Try looking for stockings head quarters...

    This may sound a little leftfield but have you tried googling stockings and tv. Its just I figure some men are going to be tall and they must buy them from somewhere that caters for the longer leg. Good luck.
