    I keep meaning to do that but of course I always forget.

    They have a nice heft. Maybe I can sharpen the pointy ends and throw them at people or something.

    have you tried bending the metal ones @holdfast? bend them with a pair of tongs. once bent above yield stress (adjust for spring back) they should stay in any shape you'd like.

    You can also bend the metal stays into a nice gentle arc of your choosing...

    The seersucker is easily my favorite fabric and I highly recommend it to anyone.

    What collar is that? The same you always have? Looks fantastic.

    Thanks for this CD. Do you like the fabric overall, or is there another summery fabric you'd recommend more? Also, looks like with how light it is, maybe a BD collar helps it remain at attention. Accurate would you say?

    Will try to do so this weekend.

    The fabric is fine, and indeed very light. I expected (perhaps naively) that there would be more texture to it, instead it just feels like a very lightweight poplin. I tried to replicate a Kamakura collar, but because it is unlined and unstructured and the fabric so light, the collar doesn't really stay up that well. These small problems (along with a hem measurement I made much too small) are all my fault, it was my first Luxire purchase and I was throwing some stuff against the wall to see what stuck.

    No, not exactly the same. I used to order English Spread and now I went for a little longer collar, though still similar i.e. to NOBD

    Do remind us with your next order. We got our plastic collar stays made with a special blend of plastic so that they do not break easily and are not troubled by the cycles of the washing machine. They can take a light iron, but not too hot.

    As good as plastic stays can get.

    We had them in clear(transparent) and white. I think the white is sold out.

    I am not sure through the pics, are those the standard or premium MOPs?

    Finally, seersucker pants. We have had the fabrics for some time now, people have often asked for them, but, never really ordered.
