These have a beautiful clocking pattern on both sides of each ankle. Clocked stockings were worn by all genders for several centuries in different forms. As late as the 1920s and 30s, they still regularly appeared in women's fashion. These are a great style choice even with modern clothing. A simulated seam runs down the back of these stockings, which gives them a little extra style and authenticity.

 Historical Note-
"Lace clocks" were a result of various attempts by hosiers in the 1760s to create an openwork fabric, which led to lace clocks, then to machine-made lace. Lace had for centuries been made only by hand. A form of lace was produced on a stocking frame around 1769.
