yes, or when tucking in your shirt, reaching up for something, etc. -- I agree. I seriously doubt these magnets could be strong enough to withstand the various shifts in fabric caused by normal daily movement, and then you end up with a magnet bouncing around the inside of your shirt. The magnets also seem like they might be jus
t bulky and heavy enough to be a bit uncomfortable and annoying, even if they did work reasonably well.
I think that if you have a limp-collared shirt that you like to wear tieless, a better solution would be to simply convert it to a 'concealed button-down' collar (is that what they call them?) -- have buttons sewn into the appropriate spots, and have loops sewn onto the underside of the collar points. Or hell, just use starch -- this probably isn't going to be an issue with your finer dress shirts anyway, so just starch 'em to hell, wear 'em 20 times and toss 'em.
