It’s all about the Elegance!
Fully fashioned nylon seamed stockings paired with classy heels, simply ooze elegance and remain the iconic, strikingly stylish fashion statement for the elegant lady. Period! The wearing of such exquisite finery defines the core purpose of DC.
Denier Court is a society that celebrates the elegance and style of vintage nylon stockings and brings together like-minded couples to socialise, talk, dance, joke and make friends in a relaxed and elegant setting.
Most members admit to some apprehension before attending their first event. This is natural. But all members go out of their way to make newcomers welcome and comfortable. There are no unexpected surprises, no hidden agendas and no unpleasantness. Just food, music, dance, drink, chat, friendship and elegance. Like all groups, as you get to know people there comes a sense of community and obviously if you don’t make the effort to socialise you won’t reap the benefits.
Traditionally there are two dinner dances per year plus a couple of member organised events, which often include Christmas parties, Burns nights, trips to Germany, France, UK based retro events, cruises and any other event that any member would like to invite other members along to.

Quirky & Interesting Facts about Stockings
- In the 50’s and early 60’s women wouldn’t be seen dead without a pair of seamed stockings. In fact, if they could not afford a pair, it was common to draw a mascara line up the back of the leg!
- Fine stockings come in 10, 15 and 20 denier. The smaller the number the finer the stocking. A denier is the weight in grams of 6 miles of nylon thread. So 6 miles of 15 denier equates to 15 grams.
- Fully fashioned means they have been flat knitted and loops reduced to form the shape, before being sewn up the seam.
- There are only a handful of manufacturers in the world today.
