Hey, you! Did you just get your dress shirt back from the cleaners only to find that its collars are curling up like the the tip of Dilbert’s tie?
Rather than trying to figure out how/why it happens I’d like to propose a simple, affordable solution: collar stays.
My personal recommendation is this Box of 50 Plastic Collar Stays from Quality Stays. It comes with the following assortment of collar stays:
- 12 – 2 inch long stays
- 24 – 2.5 inch long stays
- 14 – 3 inch long stays
My box of Quality Stays has kept me from the ironing board and has saved the life of many a shirt which would have otherwise been cast off in disgust.
