A sketchy request? Because I don't want a black mark through the maker label of my tux that I bought on ebay. Jesus. As if that one little Sharpie line is all that stands between me and a full cash refund from Neiman Marcus. I didn't know it would be marked when I bought it and I just didn't want it there - what is the big deal? I'm not trying to cut off a mattress tag here, folks.

Oh, and nail polish remover worked like a charm. Thanks for all the assistance.

If your girlfriends cares what label you are wearing and how much you paid for it, she's not the one for you...
Of course she doesn't. I said I was insecure, not that she was.

I never knew that dressing well required one to be a pedantic douche bag until I started this thread. I'd rather wear Jos. A. Bank suits for the rest of my life than ever worry about what someone does to their own suit. I haven't seen SF galvanized against something so inoffensive since the last "how do you guys lace your oxfords" thread.

Gary, my man. Relax. You're being very un-Gary right now.

Obviously you would need to soak the tag in alcohol and then scrub it clean. So somehow you have to suspend the garment above the cup of alcohol, let the tag hang into the cup of alcohol and then soak it there overnight. Scrub it. If it doesn't work, try a different solvent!

Good...good. The Force is strong with you.

And now, for the next part: master your base fears by taking a Sharpie and re-marking the tag exactly in the same place.

This way, you will be wearing your clothes, and the clothes not you. Show that dinner jacket who's boss (no Hugo.)

This both removes the marker line completely and leaves behind the highly sought after "cut tag" look.
