Way back in the Beforetime (actually, back when tagless garments did not exist), for the most part, tagged garments were okay.
But there were those crappy moments when the tag irritated. Cutting the tag carefully (to avoid damaging the stitching) did not necessarily produce the desired result. It was the microcosm of a failed surgery.
Then a glorious day came upon us, one that heavenly pressed the clouds aside, so the sun of humanity shined brilliantly, as I received my first tagless shirt.
A bit overwhelmed with appreciation for this wonderful technological advancement that would forever negate the aforementioned irritation as even a possibility, there was much to celebrate.
The future looked bright, until…
Fast forward to these days containing those clouds collapsing back inwards to shut out that heavenly light, while demonic laughter might as well join the party for hellish sake.
I buy some of my clothes at Hanes.com, because they are reasonably inexpensive (especially on sale), convenient to acquire, and wear nicely.
Clothes from their brand were of the tagless variety, until a batch of t-shirts revealed that some still have tags, as if I were receiving an older shirt that never saw the light of sale.
Harsh cringe aside, I stopped buying t-shirts there altogether, because I have no need for any roll of the tag dice.
Now, my new hoodies came in. Never previously tagged in the past handful of years that I have been buying them, but now both of my new zip up hoodies are tagged (and trying one on, the tag irritates), while my new pullover hoodie is tagless.
When will the madness end?
There is no good reason to return to tags. Period.
If the tagless print wears off, then I can look at my order history online to determine size, if forgotten. It is no different then using the internet to read any user manual, instead of having a print version begging the clutter enhancement.
Sarcastically importantly note that I have no problem with the tags elsewhere on the garment providing cleaning instructions, and so on, as they have never irritated to the best of my increasingly senior knowledge.
I could go on, but are you really reading this?
So while a war on garment tags falls clearly in line with hyperbole, and cannot be taken seriously as such, metaphorically take all garment tags behind the shed and lights out for humanity’s sake!
Think of the children!
May your garments never irritate you.✌️
