One of the services that spouse and I perform for each other is detagging. Usually at the request of the one whose neck is being (ahem) bugged by the tag. The proportion of upper torso clothing that needs detagging seems to run at about 40% or so, and interestingly, sometimes only after several launderings. You’d THINK that companies would want those tags to persist, in the belief that it would be good advertising. That they clearly do NOT want that must imply that they think the quality of their clothing is insufficient to cause good word of mouth advertising.
