Hanes Hosiery dates back to 1901 when John Wesley Hanes established the company in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.
Originally they manufactured men's socks, but in 1918 they began making women's socks. With the development of nylon in 1938,
Hanes identified it's potential in the hosiery market. Hanes began manufacturing nylon stockings and eventually developed seamless hosiery.
Hanes pioneered the introduction of pantyhose in the 1960's. Hanes continues to be successful today with a wide selection of quality
products including sheer to the waist pantyhose, control top pantyhose, thigh hi's, ribbed tights, opaque tights, plus-size pantyhose,
and of course traditional nylon garter stockings. They have very popular lines such as the Hanes Alive, Hanes Silk Reflections,
Hanes Too, Hanes Go Figure and Hanes Smooth Illusions.
