4.0 out of 5 stars Red Thread, December 18, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Tommy Hilfiger Men's Wool Plush Peacoat (Apparel)
For all those who didn't find the original red thread review helpful, let me tell you, not only is the button ridiculously sewn with it, but after removing the cloth tag, I couldn't remove the residual red thread from the sleeve. Other than that, I love this jacket, it's well made, good looking, comfortable and fits perfectly. And for the price you can't go wrong even with the infuriating red thread.

I have had this trouble with items and sewn on tags. I don't know why they do that. It seems that if you are very lucky, you pull an end, and it unravels perfectly, but pull the wrong one and you are stuck!! I have had very good results with an exacto knife or razor blade. BE CAREFUL!!! If you slowly slice through the thread BEFORE removing the paper tag underneath, you will slice all the thread and end up with a sideways letter "C" on each corner. DON'T cut through the tag, just "saw" a little and the thread will cut, but don't push enough to cut through the tag. Then just lift off the tag, take a pair of tweezers (or fingernails) and pull out the clump of threads from either side. A little more time consuming, but it is knot (and major frustration) free!!! I know the instinct is just to pull off that paper THEN deal with the thread, but think of the paper as like a protector so you can slice!! Don't rip it off and expect the thread to come with it!!!

If you already have a knot...you can pick it out with a straight pin thread by thread, or carefully use the tip of the exacto knife to lift and cut the loops of thread. Tweezers and scissors can work, but a small sharp blade is easier for me. I have even removed embroidery this way, so it is doable if you are patient!! Hope this helps!

EDIT: Oh SORRY!! I thought the thread was from the tag. I agree with the other reviewer that you can just touch up the color of the thread with a sharpie if you don't want to sew. (The exacto knife works well with slicing off buttons, too btw, if you want to re-sew!)
