Tight jeans | Strikers killed | Bake Off | Joseph Priestley | Eton cheating
My mother had severe varicose veins and wore elasticated leggings just like those in your report (Tight fit: muscly men’s love of skinny jeans, G2, 30 August). Since my recent deep vein thrombosis, I have worn support stockings every day and they appear to be the same as those sported by muscly men and male models. I am so pleased to be at the height of fashion. I wonder if these guys wear them with open-toe sandals like I do?

• A recent letter (28 August ) referred to the killings in 1911 during a protest by strikers in Llanelli. Has the shooting of strikers in Liverpool in August 1911 been forgotten? Two people were killed by soldiers brought in to control the riots.
