Is there anything worse than finding yourself at a fancy shindig with your collars curling because you forgot to re-insert your collar stays? Well, a lot of things actually, but it's still an awkward situation that can be avoided with a set of these emergency Swiss Stays that can be adjusted to fit any collar.

Available in sets of nine made from PVC plastic, stainless steel, or brass for $24, $60, and $90 respectively, the stays feature pivoting extensions so they can be lengthened or shortened as needed. There is some concern over whether or not the rivets used at the pivot points would be visible through your shirt collar's fabric, but the embarrassment of being caught without them altogether far outweighs that risk.

DISCUSSION

Am I strange for using fabric glue to glue all my plastic collar stays in? I've been doing this for years and never had a problem. Well, to be fair, I have the occasional (read one-a-year) broken collar stay... but I just use my leatherman to yank it out and glue in a new one.
