Socks and the decline of civilization

Recently, I bought a package of Fruit of the Loom Everyday Basics women's socks at CVS (a major drugstore chain), and was disgusted to find that on some of the socks, the elastic which should hold the sock up collapsed after two or three washings.

For logistical reasons which made sense at the time, I came into the possession of a package of Everyday Basics men's socks (2x more durable it says on the package), and one of them collapsed on the first wearing.

Both genders of socks are white with gray heels and toes.

I really didn't expect a product from a major manufacturer sold in a chain drugstore in a decent neighborhood to be so shoddy. Perhaps I should have been warned when the plastic beads on the bristles of a Revlon hairbrush (bought at the CVS) fell off rather quickly.

Further discussion of underwear manufacturers destroying their brand here.

I've bought some favorably reviewed socks at Amazon.
