    Three Pairs of Beatles Nylon Stockings (UK, Holland, and Italy, 1960s). With so many of the Beatles fans being young girls, it's not surprising that attempts to cash in on the group's appeal with females would be made. In the wake of Beatlemania a number of different nylons and pantyhose appeared in the market, from different manufacturers in different countries - some licensed, many not. Here are three very nice pairs of nylons, two of which are clearly licensed, and one which may or may not be. The first, in brown from the English manufacturer Scott-Centaire, is quite extraordinary. In addition to the imprint of the group name, likenesses, and autographs at the top of one of the stockings, the fabric is actually woven in a repeating pattern of moptops and guitars. The package is marked size 8 1/2. The second pair, a sheer tan pair from Holland, package marked size 9, features similar packaging and notes NEMS licensing. At the top of one of the stockings is imprinted BEATLES/NYLON STOCKINGS/First Quality/Micromesh. The exact same wording appears on the third pair from Italy, "woven by Ortalion" and sized 8 1/2 in smoke, however the packaging does not convey official licensing. All packages have been opened, however the stockings appear to be unworn and are all in Excellent condition. The paper inserts and plastic packaging all exhibit creases and are Very Good. From The Uwe Blaschke Beatles Collection.
