    I like brass, and no you can't see them even through light colored fabrics.

    The cleaner puts them in. I just wear the shirt and throw the stays away afterwards.

    I don't know if they still do this but I asked a salesman at Nordstrom about collar stays when buying a shirt and he gave me a free pack of them.

    I like the term "collar bones". Presumably no one makes them from bone any more.

    If someone does I will endeavor not to be on the same continent with them.

    Cross Europe off your list, Turnbull and Asser sell them, made in Hong Kong so Asia is a no go.

    I bought a bottle of plastic ones from BB. Nice thing is that they are different sizes.

    I like the brass stays that Tyrwhitt puts in their shirts, a nice touch!

    Do people not have bending problems with the plastic ones?

    I stopped using plastic ones and stick to my sterling ones....why? Because I just feel better like that.

    Are these Shenzen sterling?
