Here is some piece of info which would help you solve your sloppy collar issues:
- Fixing the weak collar issue:
Collar stays are inserted in the pockets made on the underside of a shirt collar, they are either metal or plastic made. (Click the image to buy metal collar stays)
The purpose of the collar stay is to stabilize the collar and keep it rigid. It ensures that the collar stays crisp and classy all the time.
But this is helpful if and only if the shirt is topped up with any type of tie, i.e. a bow tie or a neck tie.
But if you prefer to wear the shirt without a tie, then the solution is simple. A double-sided tape or craft tape can be used to fix this issue.
Cut a piece of the craft tape to the size of your thumb nail or the thump knuckle must be perfect. Place the piece of the craft tape right at the middle of your collar. This would lift the knot and keep the collar in place.
This is an easy fix for all you collar paranoids out there. It helps to fix almost all of the sloppy collar issues.
- Collar Type:
