Beautiful product and wonderful staff

I've been shopping at Fogal for over 10 years and I must say I have always been treated wonderfully, this store in particular has a lovely staff that is courteous, knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. The selection is always great and quality is the best on earth! I'm laughing at this woman's review about being SEVERELY reprimanded, please lady I highly doubt it! I've been in the store and witnessed some pretty bad behavior by other customers with demanding impatient natures and those sales people have handled them like pros... Walking into a store and rummaging through their drawers is very invasive and somewhat arrogant. This is not Victoria's Secret where customers are encouraged to shop in the drawers, this is a full service store where everyone is helped one person at a time graciously. I can imagine they don't want you going into their personal work space! I had to mention this because I know how great the staff here is and it is such a shame that narcissists and arrogant, impatient people feel the need to bad mouth anyone who dares correct them.

Quality products made for quality women. Just FYI: the 515 Madison Avenue store is closed. I instead go to the one at 611 Madison Avenue (corner of 58th Street). The store help is very friendly, truly kind.

Ive been to the NYC store twice to stock up on winter tights. On my last trip the sales lady was assisting someone else at the register...I knew exactly what I wanted (4 pairs of plain black opaque tights) I helped myself to the items and was SEVERLY reprimaded by the staff and told to put the items back until I was served. Now....gimmie a break ladies......... if these werent the best darn hose in the universe id go somewhere else (read my lips WOLFORD) and if im treated like that again in this shop I will go to wolford gladly.

For $50 a pair, definately stockings you take care of. They have stockings for every outfit in your wardrobe.

The best darn hosiery in the whole wide world.

They cost a fortune - but they wear like iron. Fogal pantyhos is the best I've EVER used in any price range. The tights are supreme and they offer a wide variety of stles, colors and patterns. I can not say enough good things about Fogal. Also, once a year they have SALE. DON'T MISS IT!!

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
