Where to find long collar bones?

Hi gents:

Where can I buy either collar bones in a good stiff PVC or brass at longer than 3 inches? Up to 3 inches is easy to find, i.e. Brooks Bros., etc. but getting them in longer than 3 inches seems to be tricky.

From the pages of The Chap:
Sir, As you know, our Egyptian brothers, before embalming the body, extracted the brain of the dead person through the cavity of the skull through the nostrils by means of a simple hook. I have instructed my man to contact various trades people with a view to purchasing such an essential tool. With this task in mind, he visited B&Q, Do-It-All, Homebase et al. He tells me that all he gets is a moronic look from the lackeys and servants employed by these emporia when he endeavours to purchase an ordinary Brain Hook. God knows what response we will get from my other request to purchase a sharp Ethipic stone, with which to remove the intestines from the abdominal cavity. David Le Noblet, Aylesbury

I'm not sure where you could find them (or why your shirt has such long points!) but for now, maybe you can just take some plastic packaging and cut a couple out of there?

PS: Express shirts have really long stays. Not sure how long, but they are reasonably stiff.

get the assorted glass vial of stays from Brooks Brothers-- at least 3 different lengths of heavy plastic stays, which won't damage your shirts like the brass ones could possibly do.

Get the poor girl a sandwich. Express' stays, at least from their 1MX shirts, are 3" long. The shirts are still trash.

I have a couple I got on sale for $20 each, and I just use them as casual shirts which seems to be working out fine.
