No worries, lol. The collar is definitely resistant to 'popping', out of the bag at least. It doesn't stay up. I'll see if I can shape it a bit.I ordered grey suede. It is imo a cinereous/ash grey with copper undertones. I had trouble deciding whether grey or brown would go best with the rest of my stuff, so I am really happy with it.For anyone trying to colour correct, I am wearing a light blue AA t-shirt (not white). Just what I had on when the doorbell rang.
