I only cut the size tag out of my clothes if the tag is bothering me while I am actually wearing the clothes. Other than that I leave them alone. I have only had to cut the tag out of a few shirts and never the pants.

One of my pet peeves. HAHAHAHA! I hate the tags as some can be very annoying making the back of my neck itch like mad. I cut them off only if and when they cause this itchiness. Sometimes I've cut too far and cut the neck ruining the shirt doing it in such a hurry. HAHAHA!! HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

It depends. Some tags are really annoying and they irritate the back of my neck. But for the most part I leave them in. But, what I love nowadays there is usually clothing made with the tagless tag. Where they put all the letter and words on the tag on the inside of the shirt. I love those. They make it so much easier.

Yes but not because i don't want anyone to know what size i wear,some people do it for that reason, but im not a large person so that does not matter to me..I cut all the tags out of most of my blouses and tops because they scratch my neck and cause it to itch...I always leave the tags on when it comes to my jeans because they don't seem to bother me...

Hi slickcut,that is the main and only reason why i cut them off,they bother me to the point of scratching so hard and leaving marks from it. Peanutjar:)

I prefer to leave them. I like to see the size and how to wash the garment so I leave them on.

I generally cut them out, if they dont bother me I leave them. My son hates them and i cut his out almost immediately after getting them. The shirts that are tagless are very nice.

You bet I do! :P As soon as I get back from shopping, I will snip those tags. I still keep them for a bit though in case I might need them to exchange the item(s) if need be.

Hey I am so sorry. I read too fast. You were talking about SIZE tags and somehow that registered as PRICE tags in my mind. :P For size tags, I generally leave them on... I don't really feel uncomfortable with them... I don't normally feel them at all. :PP

hi, i do cut the tags which hurt me, and thats specially on the neck as there i always get itching, apart from that i donot cut tags as i am ok with them till the time they arent hurting me or causing me a problem, i have seen people actually flaunt their tags if they wearing some thing which is a designer wear. do u ? i donot as i hate wearing desingner wears.it dosent fits my pocket.

Hi sang2k2. For me it's always the ones on the kneck that drive me crazy from the itchiness it gives.Nope there is no flaunting here for sure,i consider it,well not to do because it looks like its not well groomed,haha!I never wear designer wears,well sometimes but i make sure it doesn't burn a hole in my pocket to buy them.I like to save money when it comes to clothes and look for specials on items that would usually cost alot and get them half price on sale,especially after christmas!Yahooo,lots of sales then.

hi peanutjar! ^__^ i don't remove them. it doesn't give me the itch so it's okay for me for it to stay there. the only problem is sometimes it peeps out of the dress and everyone can see it. if you have a large size you'll probably get a few grins. LOL

I usually keep them on, because I have cut tags off in the past which have had the information about how to wash them! I actually put a garment in the wrong wash cycle and it shrunk it was an expensive item too! I guess you learn the hard way, unless the tag is annoying then I will leave it on.

Hi wolfie34:)Im too quick with the scissors and cut them right away not even thinking about the washing instructions and have shrunk a sweater that would fit a smurf one time,haha. Peanutjar:)

The tags on clothing are so annoying. Why do we need to leave them on? Do we need to remind ourselves what size we wear or how to launder the item? But often times when they are removed the dang collar curls up and that is bothersome too.

I only remove them if the particular tag is irritating me. Some do some don't. I have had one instance where a person tried to remove a tag for me. This tag was on the outside of a pair of jeans right above my butt. I was standing outside talking to a couple of guys when I feel a tugging on my pants. I whirl around like WTF?!? and there is this guy trying to take this tag off. I'm like you have no business pulling anything off of me, what are you doing? He goes "Well I saw the tag and I was just trying to help you out." Yeah right. I reply to him "How did you know I didn't want it there? Next time before you do anything like that you should ask someone first. That is a very personal area anyway, you don't just go reaching to pull stuff off of a person's butt!!!" I know this really doesn't have to do with your post, but it brought back the memory and I just had to tell this story.

Hi peanutjar! Sometimes I do remove tags if they itchy like crazy and drive me bonkers. If they aren't the kind that itch or bug me then I don't cut them off! Have A Great Day, PurpleTeddyBear.
