EDIT: In all seriousness, I'll use plastic until I can be bothered getting MofP, simply for the little bit of give. I dont want my collars sitting ramrod-straight. In fact, I often go stay-less (sometimes to pin my collar) with a tie. I'll generally always wear them with an open collar so it sits up under my jacket.
What do people think of shirts with stays sewn in to the collars? I know you get it on cheap Van Heusen-esque polyester monstrosities, but I've also got it on two of my most expensive Italian shirts. Both have some kind of interlining and one seems to be semi-fused.
The stays are about half the length and width of usual ones, just to give the point a bit of sharpness, and the whole collar has a sort of curve and recurve which looks stunning. You can sort of see it in this picture:
