Shirt collars often fold and curl out of shape, making your shirt look sloppy and messy
How do you get the perfect shirt collar look? Let’s go through an overview of the problem first.
The shirt collar folding problem gets worse when a jacket is worn over the shirt. Shirt collars often completely collapse under the weight of the jacket, sometimes with one side folded and the other standing up. Golf shirts and softer material shirts are especially susceptible to this problem.
Shirt collars must be able to maintain their shape shape, and so they are reinforced with more layers of fabric and often padded with additional and more rigid fabric sewn into the collar itself.
New Collared Shirts
New collared shirts often come with stiff collars that are crisp and rigid; however, after a number of washes and wears, the material that keep the collar stiff begin to soften, causing the shirt collar to lose its shape. This leads to shirt collars curling and folding.
Shirt plackets are also partly responsible for keeping the shirt collar from sagging and folding since plackets are also reinforced to maintain their rigidity. However, shirt plackets also lose their structural integrity over time, no matter how good the fabric’s quality is.
It is possible to reinforce shirt plackets using plastic inserts that are sewn into the plackets; however, these plastic inserts often bend out of shape and become warped after going through one or several washer-dryer cycles. The warped plastic insert is now stuck in the shirt placket, making the shirt look even worse than before. The additional cost and hassle of having to cut open the plackets and sew them back up also make this an unattractive and expensive option
So How to Instantly Get Your Shirt Collar to Stand Up and Look Perfect All Day
Best way to get your shirt collar to stand up and look crisp by using two products:
You typically need both products to get your shirt collar to stand up and look crisp all day.
Collar Stays are those little plastic or metal inserts that slide into the tiny pockets located on the inside front parts of your shirt collar. These little pickets are called Collar Stay Pouches. Collar stays inserted into the collar stay pouch, help keep the tips of your collar straight, preventing them from curling.
Collar Stays come in various materials such as plastic, metal, bone, and other rigid materials.
Some metal collar stays come with magnets and are called Magnetic Collar Stays. Polished stainless steel collar stays are durable and last a long time. The magnets that come with these magnetic collar stays are attached to the tips of the collar stays, from the inside of the shirt. Although these magnetic collar stays can hold some collar stays in place, they are also very easy to lose and often fall off with some body movement. They also do not provide the required support for the rest of the shirt collar, especially the back part which is most susceptible to folding under a suit jacket or sport coat.
