A Conversation for Collar Stiffeners
BuskingBob Started conversation Sep 1, 2009
This brings back memories of the days when a stiff collar point was essential (the word "cool" hadn't really been invented but I think that was what we were trying to be!)
Cigarette packets (remember them?) were an important source of emergency stiffeners, as were matchsticks etc - shirts were expensive so it was always a nightmare trying to restore a collar after you had forgotten to remove the stiffeners before laundering. Starch helped (I think there was a brand called "Robin"), but the shirt became effectively ruined as best.
