Houston, Collar Stays, & Credit Cards

Hello Gentlemen, Brooks here again. Today I’m going to tell you a little story.

Once upon a time, long ago, I was in Houston, TX on business.

Humidity Houston!!

Anyways, you get the picture, and to my dismay I forgot to pack any collar stays for my dress shirts! You can imagine what my shirt collar looked like at the end of day one.

Not Good.

I tried to get local mens retailers to sell me a set of stays – they were no help.

When I paid for dinner, I realized I had the solution to my problem. I cut up one of my credit cards and fashioned a couple of sets of collar stays which I still have!

This occurred during the Carter Administration.

The FACT that something as small as a slender piece of plastic can effect you image in such a negative way may seem trivial. However if you are doing business with people for the first time and your appearance is sub-par, that small plastic stay can cost you big bucks.

When you dress, you are creating an image that in some cases, will last a lifetime.

So if you ever find yourself needing to go to Houston and you don’t have any collar stays, just come by, I have some scissors.

Good Day Gentlemen!
