Wurkin Stiffs Magnetic Collar Stays – $39.00 for the 6-piece variety set
It’ll be here before you know it. So if you’re in need of a few ideas on what to give (or in some cases, what to put on your own list) this year, this is the place to be for the next couple weeks. Our annual 12 days of Dappered covers one item each week-day between now and December 20th. That’ll leave some time for shipping if you’re the last minute type. All will be reasonably affordable. See the archive here.
Most of you have seen these. But for the small percentage that haven’t, know that there’s hardly another “advancement” in men’s style this side of flat front pants that you’ll forever swear by once you become a user.
Regular collar stays are a necessity. They’re water. These are wine. Each stay connects to a tiny pencil eraser sized magnet that goes on the inside of your shirt. The magnetic connection between the two is super strong, and the result is a non-floppy, crisp and at attention collar that’ll stay in place all day.
No more tucking your collar inside your V-neck sweater and hoping. These give you that perfect shape every time, and you can adjust the width of the points of your collar to your taste.
Note: I only own one pair of the 2.5″ option and I’ve never needed another. Those single sets seem to be sold out just about everywhere except Macy’s, where they’ll nail you on shipping.
