Getting the collar on a shirt to 'sit up'

Friends,

Now and again I wear shirts with an open collar and find that the collar can 'sit flat' on my shoulder blades which could be a bit 70's Travolta.

I would appreciate thoughts on how to make a collar 'sit up' more. I think part of it is if the most 'done up' button could sometimes be too low, promoting the sit flat look. My thoughts are to let the shirts air after ironing using 'clamp style' hangers as per the attached photos.

Cheers





MV

The collar band has to be stiff enough to sit vertically instead of collapsing. If your shirts have soft collar bands then the only thing I can think of is starch, though that apparently shortens the lifespan of the shirt.

Have you tried these? shorturl.at/vBMPQ (if the link doesn't work you can search for magnetic collar on Amazon). We can personally vouch that these collars work great! The only annoying part is that the magnet is visible in the inside collar, but worth it to look sharp.
