This review is from: Hanes Men's Cushion Crew Sock (Apparel)
I bought these in black.
Unfortunately, I wasn't aware the bottom of the socks were branded "Hanes".
If you have aversions to manufacturer names being seen on the exterior surfaces of your clothing (and your body acting as a living billboard for these companies), you should be aware of this.
The red Hanes lettering is sewn in just under your toe area, so if you are sitting on the couch with feet up, you are advertising the brand of your socks. I would much prefer no branding messages being sent when resting. In everyday use with shoes on, the lettering is obviously covered.
Otherwise these socks are OK; they are comfortable and do what all good socks do.
If I had known about the branding being so ugly and visible (red lettering on black socks), I would have avoided them. I'm assuming the Grey version of this sock has similar branding.
Good socks spoiled by totally unnecessary (and ugly) exterior branding which reveals itself when shoe-less.

I think it provides useful info.
It's one thing to say that what I said is not important to you. It's another thing to answer in the way you did.
Were you really seeking some more details on these socks that you didn't get? Just having a bad day? Bad year? Keep in mind these are socks; not the most complex thing on the shelf. The description here doesn't mention they are branded. Not everyone likes this, believe it or not. Not even asking you to care. I do though, and maybe others do too. The (thin) red strip on the front of the sock also indicates that red thread is used elsewhere to brand the sock. That affects the look of the top of the sock too.
In summary, I rank my review far above a three-word rude response from a total stranger.
