You guys are too funny. Â
Isn't mother of pearl brittle?
If you'd like to try them out for yourself, we'd be happy to send you a pair for a trial run. Pay if you like, return if you don't. Â I doubt you'll get a better deal out there. Â Hilditch and Key is offering them now for 18.50L (approx $35.50 USD). Â There may be others, but I doubt you'll beat our $20/pr or $50/3 pr deal. Â In fact, we only have a few pairs left after the event in NY, but should have a new shipment within the week (which probably translates from Italian, "before Summer..") Â Anyway, I thot I'd make you the offer, but don't go telling all your buddies at the gym that we're sending out free samples of MOP collar stays..
Uriahheep - For collar stays? Â Just hype, and not functionally very good. Â They're too short for most collars, even some of the shorter collars.
I'll leave the question of functionality up to the wearer. Â I personally don't wear them much (except when I steal Chuck's shirts on occasion). Â That's a more subjective. Â Hype? Â Somewhat. Â I mean, who really NEEDS $50 panties that noone will ever see? Â Or $90 socks that noone will ever see? Â Or $100 undershirts that noone will ever see? Â (but they sure are sweet to wear, aren't they Alex? - the undershirts I mean.) Â As for size, it it TOTALLY dependent on the size of your collars. Â Our collar stays measure exactly 2 3/8" or 6cm. Â If that works for your particular collar, then lucky you. Â If not, you'd be better off with another collar stay.
