By now, you know me. Mildly fashionable with a continually evolving sense of style of the dos and don’t’s of the game. I must take this time to issue a PSA for collar stays. Gentlemen, when your shirt has cutouts in the collar, and they come with those little plastic thingies (a term a friend of mine actually once used) that fall out in the dryer or at the cleaners, it means only one thing. YOU’RE SUPPOSED TO HAVE COLLAR STAYS.
A huge pet peeve of mine is the flyaway collar because there isn’t anything holding the collar in place. I have even been known to hit up a Jos A Bank or some equivalent on a day if I forgot to put them in just so I can buy some cheap brass ones. In fact – I keep a tube at the office for that very reason. Although I must say it is extremely rare to forget them. To me – it’s almost like forgetting shoes or a belt (although I have done that and ended up finding a cheap retailer to purchase a new one at before arriving to work so I didn’t look like a fool).
I implore you, if you have no idea what I am talking about, please Google it. You need collar stays. It’s just the right thing to do.
Til Next Time,
