The reason why I sometimes avoid wearing smart "dressy" clothes is because most smarter clothes I've ever worn seem to have more irritating clothing tags than the casual clothes I wear, and if I cut them out it still leaves a sharp, itchy bit on the seam.

Also I usually shop at this clothing store that's brand has as little clothing tags as possible, which is why my favourite fashion items are tops with no sleeves and sweaters with a hood because those are what this particular store brand sells (I don't really feel tags so much in trousers). Also I bought several packets of these underpants that literally have no tags in at all, just the name of the brand and washing instructions printed on them on the inside, and they are the most comfortable underpants in the world. Now why can't ALL clothes have all that printed on the inside instead of dreaded clothing tags???

You can find dress clothes that have soft tags. It takes some looking, but they are out there.

I don’t buy anything unless I try it on and it’s comfortable.

I feel the same way that’s why I bought some adaptive pants from this brand at target because they don’t have tags, are seamless, don’t have buttons or zippers, and kind of have that stretchy material around the stomach like maternity pants.

Everytime I encounter a tag, I don't cut them.

Just that I never, ever cut the tag itself and then leave a thicker seam with bits of the tag trapped in it's threads.
That would only make it harder for me.

As soon as I felt it uncomfortable enough, regardless how soft or hard... I'd likely rip the whole thing off. Violently.
Then fix the broken threads of the seam the tag was sewn onto whenever I have the time.


Alternatively, if I have the time and tools... Or that I cannot rip the tag off...
I'd snip the tag from it's very thread, gently remove the whole thing, and sew the broken seam back.

Most tags can be removed by unpicking the threads attaching them. I was a seamstress and I have the tools and patience. :) I will not put up with uncomfortable tags no matter how dressy the clothes are. If I have to preserve the brand and size information I'll move the tag to a part that doesn't rub against me. The trend nowadays is going tag-less, though. It's much cheaper to do a bit of printing rather than sewing tags on. I reckon that someday we won't have such problem anymore.

Any good brands for clothing without tags and seamless clothing?

I am here to enlighten you about a magical tool called an unpicker! :mrgreen:

I think they're named something different in different countries, but yes this thing has saved a lot of irritation and holes - they're like £1 on ebay or something. Definitely worth using.
