Why the distinction between a dark colour and black?

Ideally I'd go for black but if there's some comfy socks in any dark colour I'd get them.

Hi Tim,
Thank you for voting.
I have found a gap in the socks retailing trade which I intend to fill, I am interested in black socks only because it would make the ecommerce aspect simple e.g. no need for online catalogue etc. unfortunately my business adviser does not agree, that is the reason for the poll. In the future I might deal in dark colours i.e. dark grey and navy blue but I am keeping to black colours only for now I believe in simplicity.

Thanks again.

Guys please help and vote.

Hey covenant, did I understand you right? Will you offer only socks? I can appreciate the value of a colour poll here but how can you estimate the demand for socks? And how would you be able to forecast it over several months? This dilemna brings up another noobie question:

How does one estimate the market demand for our products / services?

Your poll is one great way. Standing in the street with a clipboard is also good if you're targetting home consumers. My business will target companies. How can I asses the demand from businesses? Should I phone 50 potential clients? Should I take into account the figures and stats that are thrown around in the industry press?
