I love the suit, no tie, great shirt with a crisp collar at attention look. Y’know, just like the guys in the Ocean’s movies seemed to sport in every single scene. The problem is, I can never seem to prevent my collar from flopping over. It just goes soft on me. Whether I’ve got collar stays in, or starched the ever living hell out of it… doesn’t matter.
There is now a solution. For as low as $20. Esquire Magazine’s new Best Dressed Real Man in America Explains right here.
The problem with collars (like many other things) is that they’re subject to gravity. Even if you leave the house with the collar looking great, chances are by the end of the night you’re going to look like a miniature version of the Wright Flyer crash landed on the back of your neck.

Pretty simple idea. They’re metal stays, and a small button magnet goes underneath your shirt. It’s a powerful enough magnet that the point of the stay sticks tight to the magnet, and you can adjust however you wish.
Genius. My box is on the way.
