    I've tried searching on this to no avail. I forgot to put collar stays in this morning and my collar looks goofy without them. What are some clever ideas I haven't thought of to improvise?

    On the flip side, my searches found these "emergency cufflinks" which seemed pretty cool...

    two ideas that come to mind
    1) take a sheet of cardboard and a pair of scissors and cut them
    2) find paperclips of the appropriate size

    That's a great idea. I have a stupid missoni shirt that for some reason has bizarre stays that don't fit in other shirts. Nothing like leaving town with only the missoni stays for my non-missoni shirts.

    You misunderstood my reference. Turns out Frisco is near Corsicana. Corsicana is what i was thinking of.

    Depends on how lame your sense of "humor" is.

    On a more relevant topic, I've used paper clips or the plastic cover of notebooks (cut to size) in a pinch.
