In answer to the OP, yes. My first, (and only) Sea Island cotton shirt has an inkstain right on the end of the left sleeve placket. I just can't seem to bring myself to toss it, so it ocassionaly gets worked in under a sweater. It's other purpose is to serve as an expensive reminder to not purchase overpriced RTW shirts at retail...

When I read the title I just knew this was gonna be about eating an eclair from the garbage.

+1 (and add aluminum stained pits because of my refusal to wear undershirts which make me look fatter about the waist)

My shirts are, for now, stain-free, but I would definitely Costanza any if they were irreparably stained. I have "Costanza'ed" a tie that has a stain and which I have yet to send off to Tiecrafters for repair.

I have some much-loved shirts that are so well worn that they have to be worn under sweaters, but none with stains. If I kept one with an enormous stain, there'd undoubtedly be a Costanza twist in which some bizarre circumstance forced me to remove my sweater in public, to my complete humiliation.

You know what sucks? I've had two nice shirts get stains ONLY on the collar, making them virtually unwearable and un-Costanzable.

What has come up are shirts whose pattern I like but somehow don't fit very well - the collar lays funny or the body's too big. I relegate them to under-sweater use.

+1, I do this too. It's basically a waste to throw out a shirt just because of a minor flaw (a flaw that is probably only visible to yourself).

I do it as well. I also do it with shirts that don't fit properly.

Do you guys remember when George wanted to wear cuff links but didn't have a shirt w/ French cuffs, so he poked holes in the cuffs w/ a letter opener?! ;-)

This isn't quite the classic Costanza: Sometimes when I'm in a rush and I don't have time to iron my shirt, I just throw a sweater on top, if the collar's okay of course. *I did this today*

^^^ This I've done.

I'm not too proud: I've Constanza'd. Both with a coffee stain and a repaired X-acto knife incident.

Absolutely. I've Costanza'd but even then, I'm still self-concious about it, knowing damn well no one besides me will see it
