I hate how a lot of my polos, the collars get really limp and foldy and whatnot. I like them the way they are when I buy them, very stiff. How can I make them retain the stiffness? Or is it a brand thing?

Thanks.

I’ve never had a polo where the collar is stiff when new only to become floppy when worn and washed a few times.

I’ve had good luck with Brooks Brothers in the past. I prefer a stiffer collar and brooks seems to do a pretty good job.

Arizona Jean Company? Man, that takes me back...

Assuming you aren't talking about a ocbd, I don't believe polo/tennis shirt collars are supposed to stand up. In fact, I've been known to iron them down if they develop a curl after many washings/dryings.

I sort of like the curl. I won't go as far as popping the collar, but a nice curl gives the shirt the sort of relaxed look intended for such a shirt.

I recall there used to be plastic pieces roughly the shape of a large guitar pick, but thinner, that were adhesive on one side to place under polo collars to stiffen them. Are such things still around?
