Is Robin Wearing Pantyhose?


While looking at pictures on line, I thought I saw Robin from the Adam West TV show of the 60's wearing pantyhose. Kinda looks like it to me, what do you think?

I have wondered that for years.

I think Robin is wearing flesh-colored tights, from the overall appearance, and also the small wrinkle you can see at his left ankle (on the right in the picture.) Also, pantyhose would never stand up to an encounter with a villian :-)

He is wearing pantyhose. No big deal men are starting to wear them openly now.

well our masked hero was well ahead of his time wearing hosiery in the 60's!

In the DVD commentary to the original Batman film (1966), Burt Ward says the tights were uncomfortable, hairy and woolly - not the comfortable smooth material you get these days. I can testify that shirts and trousers, at least, were very uncomfortable in my schooldays in the 1960s.

The other guy is right - closeup photos show there are wrinkles in the tights - they are definitely not pantyhose.

I believe Robin is wearing flesh
tone tights or close to it.
