Hanes launches men's tagless innerwear bottoms

Hanes, the company that introduced Tagless undershirts to the market in 2002, has gone Tagless once again – this time across all lines of its men's underwear bottoms.

America's No. 1 men's underwear brand launched a new marketing campaign to support the new Tagless underwear, including new television advertising spots on high-profile entertainment and sports programming.

Hanes Tagless underwear bottoms deliver a new level of comfort with superior softness without the itch and irritation of a tag. The product launch and tone of the ad campaign underscore the brand's continued commitment to ensure the ultimate in comfort with each new product innovation.

Following the success of the wildly popular Hanes Tagless undershirt and in response to in-depth consumer research, Hanes brought the Tagless brand to its briefs, boxers and boxer briefs to address the unmet needs voiced by male consumers.

"As a brand, our mission is to deliver consumer-driven product innovations for superior comfort with enhanced fit," said Sidney Falken, chief branding officer, Hanes. "Tags continue to be a significant irritant for our consumers, so we sought to address this issue across all of our styles of men's underwear bottoms.

“We consider ourselves to be comfort innovators and we strive to deliver both physical and emotional comfort with all of our products. Our ultimate goal is perfect comfort, without a distracting tag."

Hanes and MJ Trounce the Tag
For more than 20 years, basketball legend Michael Jordan has been the face of Hanes men's underwear. In the latest Tagless ad campaign, Hanes shows how annoying uncomfortable tags can be by bringing them to life and giving them the same annoying traits of people who drive others crazy.

Jordan is shown rescuing men from the personified "annoying tag" in different scenarios. The ads were developed for Hanes by The Martin Agency of Richmond, VA.

"These ads do a great job of driving home the point of how annoying tags are in a very funny and entertaining way. I personally can't stand annoying, itchy tags and I'm so glad Hanes decided to get rid of them… and I'm very happy to help," Jordan said.

"I've been working with Hanes for more than 20 years and each time we've created ads together, it's been a blast."

"Office" is the first of three spots that amplify the nuisance of an underwear tag. It shows a man sitting at an office desk attempting to do his work when his underwear tag starts chattering incessantly, trying to add some excitement to the workday.

“As the tag prattles on, Michael Jordan enters the office building and relieves the worker of his annoying tag by tossing it into a paper shredder. Each spot ends with a tagline that simply states, "Tags are annoying. So we got rid of them."

"Movie Talker" shows a man and his girlfriend sitting in a darkened movie theater trying, to no avail, to watch a scary movie. As they focus on the film, the man's undershirt tags refuses to stop talking and revealing the movie's plot.
