    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.

    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.

    I have seen adjustable collar stays although they were made of 14kt gold.

    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.
