If you can't remove the collar stays, they leave marks on the collars when you iron them or take them to the cleaner. It doesn't matter what brand it is, or how well it's made. It's just a fact of life. Opinions vary on the subject, but I would never buy a shirt with sewn-in stays.
I appreciated the first guy's explanation of the company (and his clarification that the shirts do, in fact, have sewn-in collar stays, so I know I will never buy one). Could have done without the bullshit "I just bought three of these" guy, though.

I tie the ideal knot for each tie I have - different knots depending on the tie and how I plan to wear it - and then I don't have to tie it again. I might occasionally untie one for some reason, but assuming it was tied perfectly the first time and I tie it perfectly the second time (which I do), all the creases inside the knot will...
I loosen the tie a bit, slip it over my head, tighten it back up so the loop is the same size it will be when I put it back on, and hang it back in my closet.
Ah, I see what you mean. I think I'll hold off on trying this unless I hear from someone who has one and likes it. Thanks again!

Both look sharp, keep great time and the cheaper one (my everyday watch) has been through...
