Rock's shirt definitely has hidden buttons under the collar. Pierce's shirt likely has them, too, but it's not 100% clear. These shirts are made to be worn like that. They have stiffer material in the collar, as well.

Assuming your shirts are not like this, Wurkin Stiffs are your best bet. Starch will NOT make them stand up like that.

A sword is more frightening than toy-looking gun like glock.

$40 for 3 pairs? why can't you just buy a bunch of metal collar stays, then some tiny magnets? would cost a lot less than the stuff from that site.

also, I dunno... the way it is obviously attached to the shirt in the video looks a little awkward to me.

That man has earrings, shaped sideburns, his shirt doesn't fit, and he's wearing a crew neck under a dress shirt. He's obviously not to be trusted.

i have a set
you can move the magnet to change the angle of your shirt collar ... can position in all kinds of ways
and they do a good job of staying put

and the set can double as your normal collar stay
usually i just use them without the magnet instead of buying separate collar stays
beats using the flimsy plastic ones
^ That.

Yes, if you are not wearing a tie and you choose to wear an undershirt, it should be a v-neck or tank top ("wifebeater.") It's a undershirt - underwear. It's not meant to be seen any more than your boxers or briefs are meant to be seen.

If you get a little more into the "rules" of dressing well, any collar that doesn't button down should be worn with a tie. It looks just fine if the collar is tight (hence this thread) but that dude in the picture is dressed very poorly. He's got two buttons undone (only appropriate on vacation or in a bar), a crew neck showing (never appropriate and always looks dopey), and his collar is flared out. Also, the guys who dress like this aren't usually athletic, racially ambiguous models who are tasting wine. Put that outfit on an overweight, average looking guy in a cubicle and then you'll get the full effect.

If you're going to put that little effort into it, a polo shirt would look much nicer.

My buddy wears those power stays and its funny that guys come up to him and ask how is shirt collar sits how it does. He even does the golf shirt ones, but I just think they are too expensive for what they are.

When you use those 1/8 magnets, do you find that the magnets are strong enough? I'm considering getting the Neodymium Magnets 1/2 x 1/8 inch Disc N48. It says under ideal conditions 6lbs of force. (http://www.amazon.com/Neodymium-Magn...ref=pd_sim_k_1)

I actually had a bunch of tiny magnets laying around; not sure what kind they are.

I just got back from a motorcycle ride with my collar exposed, and the magnets/collar are still in place
