    How difficult will it be to remove this logo?

    Hello everyone, I bought a denim shirt from Tokyolaundry that I quite like, however I think I'd much prefer it if it didn't have this logo sewn onto the waist.

    Eden short sleeve shirt by Tokyo Laundry is the shirt I bought

    http://www.tokyolaundry.com/images/1664901508.jpg and the logo I'm thinking about removing

    I've heard about seam rippers however, I've heard some nasty stories about people ruining their shirts accidentally and so I'd prefer to avoid the risk if possible as I've never modified clothes before.

    Do you think it's worth the risk?

    Would appreciate any advice you guys have for me.
    Cheers,
    Jon

    I have a very similar shirt and it had a label in exactly the same place - I just used a really sharp pair of nail scissors and carefully unpicked the thread. It didn't damage the shirt at all, although the material underneath the label is a slightly lighter colour - doesn't bother me though, adds to the vintage kind of look of the shirt. I say go for it - I hate logos on shirts no matter how subtle they may be.

    Pretty easy to remove, use a seam ripper, small sharp scissors or the point of a sharp knife to cut the thread & then unpick it. Can't stand logos either so I've had to do it a few times.

    Thanks a lot for replying ,
    I just used a cuticle remover instead and that worked superbly on removing the stitching.
    Cheers guys,
