Vicki’s Nylons:

Their premier product is Full-Fashioned Nylon Stockings.
Here is an excerpt from their website:

“Our Full-Fashioned Nylons are knit on mills that produce a stocking
exactly as they were made in the 1940's and 1950's. The mills were
manufactured in the 1950's and produce authentic nylons. Each stocking
is knit in the shape of a leg, these are not today's inferior stretch
nylon product.  The seam is a result of a process that actually
finishes the stocking and gives the stocking its classic shape and
fit.The "loop" at the top backside of the stocking is also a result of
the finishing process and identifies a true Full-Fashioned Nylon.”
