DEAR MISS MANNERS: Can you shed some light on an issue that's been the subject of conversation at several weddings that I've attended in the past year? What's the purpose of the tag on the arm of a man's suit sleeve? Should it be removed before the suit is worn, or should it be worn on the suit? Please settle this argument.
GENTLE READER: The tag on the suit sleeve? You mean the one that says "48 S 2 percent wool"? Or the one that says "Tux by Chuck"? Or the one that says "Spiffy Rentals"?
Or perhaps the one that inspires people to say, "You paid too much. I know where you could have gotten this cheaper."
Miss Manners was just curious, because it doesn't really matter. The only things a gentleman properly wears on his sleeve are some superfluous buttons and, in the case of the bridegroom for the duration of the wedding, his heart.
