Anyone here use metal collar stays? If so, where did you get them?

 

edit: I should mention I'm in Canada :)

Metal gives a good look generally, but might not be ideal for shirts worn casually (without a tie). I know some people that bend them a bit. Not sure where you are from, but you could try TM Lewin, Charles Tyrwhitt, Brooks Brothers, or eHaberdasher (linked on the right side of the page).

I use Wurkin Stiffs. Metal collar stays with magnets to hold your collars down. Here's a link: http://www.wurkinstiffs.com

I bought mine from Gilt Group and they are from Jan Leslie. They are about $20 for 6 pairs and are made of brass or stainless steel depending on which ones you get.

I know this camera takes pretty bad quality pictures but how do these options look?

That is NOT the same suit as before but the other pinstripe suit I will be wearing is at the tailor. I thought this suit jacket was closer to the other grey suit when I put it in the picture but now that I compare the other picture it looks much lighter. So I apologize for throwing it off with that light grey, try to imagine the darker suit from before...

I think you're right about the solid navy blue however, especially after seeing this blue one with the white shirt. I think I'm going to go check another store or two and see what I can find.

Thanks guys, I will look into these options.

Those ties are horrific. If you must wear a red tie, pair it with a light blue shirt. With a white shirt there is way too much contrast. The spotted red one is decent, but the other is cheap looking. If you must go with the white shirt the navy tie (while not great looking do to the sateen stripe) would be the better choice.

Meermin because well who the hell is "handgrade"? confused.gif

Also the meermin's are styled more tastefully, imo.

x2, I had thought DC Lewis supplied their shoes?

 

My only beef with the meermins is the last. Hiro fits me perfectly, New Rey is somewhat more narrow, but looks great. Probably should just size up.

 

Alright, one vote for the Meermins.

Well no hate to DC, but their shoes are made in China. I am a bit of an economic nationalist...

Nothing wrong with that.

Don't get me started on the US unions and their effect on manufacturing in this country nest.gif
