    everyone who sees you is supposed to know this? i don't think a dangling tag of any sort looks good.

    look, I dunno what world you live in, but taking psychology 101 at university really opened my eyes to some things: life is about signaling. that tag sends the signals that: sq4u is rich and successful and it looks like a lift pass so it tells you he's pretty athletic and cares about lookin good on the slopes

    keep the tag. branding is only tacky if the item is cheap.
    keeping the tag on sends one of two messages: 1. you are so rich you only wear your clothing once 2. you stole the jacket either makes you a badass... or you can look like a dweeb.

    keep embellishing this joke, it might eventually become funny.

    no, you are right. but most people: A) wont even notice it B) wont know whether it is supposed to be cut off or left on if they do (i dont particularly know myself) C) wont think anything different about the wearer of the jacket because of a 1" triangle hanging off a zipper on the side the only reason KVC noticed it is because he is an outerwear junkie theoretically, you are supposed to cut off all the MMM tags from his garments. do you do that? I don't. I think they look cool; especially on contrasting colored knits and tops. some of the tags on shoes and bags can't even be cut off because one side is covered by material or paint.

    +1. When I saw it mentioned I had to go back to the pic and look around and still couldn't find it until I saw that little triangle and not until someone mentioned it that I was sure that what people were talking about.

    Great fit, Nil. I see we share the same aversion to color.
