You wouldn't want the sock end letting go, would you...

I must be retarded (no offense). I acutally think they seem like a cool idea. and I love the shirt garter, I hate trying to smooth out my shirt when I put my pants on. Mabyee not attached to my socks, but its an interesting thing.

+1

They do the job very discreetly so I don't feel they add that look of artificial perfection that others claim they do.

The very antithesis of sprezzatura.

Exactly. I'm sure most of the naysayers in this thread have never owned or used these things. They don't weld your collar in place. They are just like wearing a buttondown collar without the buttons. dl

That tie tie-down gizmo (immediately above) might not be so bad...

A marketing strategy like that sounds positively nutty

If you had the round magnets surgically inserted into your clavacles you wouldnt have to worry about losing them.

Gotta admit, all three of these seem like pretty innovative ideas. The magnetic things might be a good idea as it does get annoying when your shirt collar won't stay down under a sportcoat.

I also like the Tiealign, but what's up with the membership program. Do they really need to be replaced every 3-months or is that mainly for people who wear and abuse their clothes every day like waiters, etc?

I tried the plastic tie stays for a while but they always felt cheap and they get pretty bent up over time. I now prefer fabric versions like this one: http://www.thetiething.com/retailer.aspx
