Something that's been bothering me for a while: on auctions I pretty often see old prints (as old as Rose Toilette) as "new, with tags".

I find it unlikely that a dress would hang in somebody's closet unworn for three years. Especially unlikely, if the seller mentions having bought the dress off somebody. =/

So, what's the deal? Do the Japanese just wear their Loli with tags uncut, and then resell the clothes as "new"? Or keep the tags and then reattach them? (yeah, I've read about Japanese sellers being trustworthy, but I find it hard to believe in inherent goodness of people based on their nationality =|)
