Please take those tags off

Most designer and name brand suits and coats here are sold with loosely stitched labels on the sleeves which are meant to be taken out after purchase.  I would think that the logical reason the tags are stitched on the sleeve is to help the shopper browsing coats or jackets on a rack to view the label or maker of the suit/coat without having to go to the collar. 

Those who shop for suits or coats are often drawn to a particular piece by its color or material, and with name brands and designer lines usually lumped together, it is helpful to see the label on the sleeve.  Again, they’re supposed to be taken off and it’s regarded as uber tacky to be seen wearing a coat with this tag still on.

It seems that there are those who are label or advertising conscious who forget or are not aware that this tage is supposed to be removed.  Googling fashion faux pas like this seem to show that tags that are generally loosely attached are produced in that way to enable to buyer to easily take care of removing them after purchase.  I often find myself itching to tell some person I see on the subway or on the bus wearing their coat or suit jacket with this still on, but hey, it’s a free country.  We are all entitled to act stupidly if we wish.

So don’t be caught wearing a coat or a suit with that sleeve tag still attached to it.  You may feel mighty proud wearing your Armani or your Calvin Klein suit, but wearing it with that sleeve tag still attached brings you down notches to being unfashionable.  With winter fast approaching and people shopping for new coats to look trendy, don’t get caught with that tag announcing to the whole world not that you bought something in good taste, but that you don’t have the class to know how to wear the coat without that tag.
