They're all on eBay right as we speak.
I guess I need to get my keywords down better.
You're fooling nobody, M.

NIce collar bars, by the way.
[p.s. if it is in fact Veronica, my apologies]
well- it came today.
Man I love this thing. It just keeps everything exactly where it's supposed to be.
I'll say. In New York these days, if you try that once you won't get a second chance. Not with the ladies, anyway.
Then again, there's nothing more "vintage" than flapping collars. If you look at pix of FDR, his collar is always flapping in the breeze. Of course, in most of these shots he's riding in the back of some big 4 door concertible.
Speaking of World's Fair, I have a 1939 World's Fair spoon that my great aunt gave me in 1951 when I was four years old. I love it. It used to have blue enamel behind the image of the Trylon and Perisphere, but that's long gone. I also have a 1933 World's Fair spoon that my mother got at the Chicago Century of Progress Fair. It's fun to use them to stir the honey into my tea.
fftopic: When I was up in Lancaster, PA, I saw a white porcelain enamel card table? dinner table? with the '39 fair logo in orange and blue at each place setting.
To add to the collective knowledge..
collar pin shirts
Robert Talbot known, I think, mainly for ties has a retail outlet in Carmel-by-the Sea, CA. You can order custom made shirts in a wide variety of fabrics with an eyelet collar for $150.00-175.00.
Collar Bars - For them or against them?
I was thinking of getting a collar bar to wear after seeing them in two 1930's movies this past week.
What is everyone's thoughts on them?
I'm talking about the ones that clip on and not the ones for shirts with holes for them.
Does anyone have a place that sells 1930/40s ones (outside of the all powerful and magnficent Ebay)? Or ones of similar style?
Personally, I love collar bars.
My only gripe is that modern shirt collars really don't work all that well with them.
I've never seen them anywhere outside antique stores and ebay.
I got mine (a safety-pin lookalike that clips on) at J. Press here in DC. That and a small independent menswear shop are the only places I've seen them.
Don't get the really long ones. They just look tacky.
Mine are both 2" tip to tip, just to give you an idea of a good size.
I like them.
I'm a fan. For a change of pace, they're a nice addition to the wardrobe. They work very well with the vintage soft-collared shirts; not so well with modern spread collars.
I am definitely for 'em!
It depends on having the proper collar.
A bit hard to see but here is one "in action".
As they say on Little Britain "Ah want that wun!"
do it. it just adds that l'il sumpin', sumpin'.
and get the matching cuff links
I've seen them at both Macy's and Penney's in the last few months. Whether they'll have them if I look tonight is a different story. You never know what you will or won't find at different stores in the chains in different parts of the country, even within the same regions. <sigh> I really miss The Bon Marche...even though it's been part of Federated for years, it seems like the last year or two, since the "rebranding" as Macy's, it's careening downhill...
