After years of wearing dress shirts, I had accumulated a large pile of flimsy mismatched plastic collar stays. They are all different shapes and sizes, weak and easily warped. Getting a proper fitting pair of stays was always a challenge. And on many occasions my shirt collars looked imbalanced or just plain sloppy. But the biggest problem of all was the time and effort wasted, searching thru them each day.

CLEVERFIT: How To Video
CLEVERFIT Unlocks the Secrets to Better Looking Shirts
Secret #1: A More Structured Collar
CLEVERFIT can be adjusted to provide tip-to-neckline support for all traditional collar sizes.This unique ability eliminates weak zones and balances the correct amount of length and strength for every fabric type.
Secret #2: A More Stable Collar
By using the science of leverage; CLEVERFIT can become a collar stabilizer in the extended position. It’s simple really, when adjusted to fit snugly between your tie and the underside of your shirt collar; CLEVERFIT acts like a counterbalance, limiting wiggle and maintaining your collar’s natural position.
CLEVERFIT Solves Common Collar Problems
Most collar irregularities can be tied to flimsy or poorly sized stays. CLEVERFIT’s patent pending design eliminates these problems and enhances your collar’s appearance.
A Perfect Case
Keeping track of collar stays can also be a challenge. So I designed the CLEVERFIT custom travel case to be the perfect time-saving organizer.
On Your Dresser

The Journey To Kickstarter
I've had many extraordinary challenges to overcome in the past few years. Multiple prototypes have been designed, tested and then re-engineered, again and again. Patents, trademarks and copyrights have been filed. Numerous manufacturing methods have been evaluated. Logistical channels have been established. And a solid plan has been developed with the help of a network of hard working, very talented people to build a foundation for launching CLEVERFIT.
But the most important element in this fantastic journey is that I can proudly say, "CLEVERFIT is absolutely the best collar stay in the world".
Kickstarter Capital Plan
CLEVERFIT is ready to be manufactured. All of the design specifications have been approved. Final prototype samples have been received and evaluated. And a detailed quality control program has been implemented. CLEVERFIT has met and exceeded all of my expectations and I can't wait to send you your very own set!

Risks and challenges
Every business, entrepreneurial or otherwise requires diligent planning and the ability to find feasible and reliable solutions to unexpected problems. My combined background in both engineering and the financial industry has provided a solid foundation from which to analyze and overcome many of the challenges facing a start up enterprise.
There have been many difficult decisions I've had to make over the past several years. But none of what I have accomplished, could have been done without building a network of trust and cooperation with so many wonderful people along the way.
Today, with the help of fantastic Kickstarter supporters such as you, I can confidently say that the future challenges will be very manageable. In my heart, I feel that the main challenge will be to manage the manufacturing process to ensure that quantities meet expected and hopefully, expanding demand. Retail packaging concepts will evolve with valuable feedback from potential distribution partners. But overall, I do not expect any insurmountable obstacles in our way.
CLEVERFIT's path from production to shipment is clear. And I and my fantastic group of dedicated professionals are ready to go!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
Great News! International Early Bird, Hero and Champion level backers can reduce shipping to a flat rate of $7.00 US. Please select Early Bird II as the new rate has been updated in this award choice.
Because the campaign is live, Hero and Champion levels will have to revisit the project page and click “Manage Your Pledge" and then update the total pledge amount to reflect the discount. We hope to add a new category for these levels in the near future.
CLEVERFIT is crafted from highly polished stainless steel. The edge profile is ultra thin, less than that of most coins, but extremely strong.
CLEVERFIT is purposely designed with a firm interlocking mechanism to ensure correct sizing. This strength helps to maintain the desired collar appearance under even the most demanding conditions. CLEVERFIT is a unique product with a special yet simple method of operation. Please view the "How To" video provided in this campaign for a more specific demonstration.
In my research, TSA (US Transportation and Safety Administration) informed me that there should not be any problem. They said they see millions of people every year in hundreds of airports, wearing the old style metal fixed length stays, every day worldwide. They did indicate that all airport sensitivity settings are different and with the current policy of heightened security, it is possible for them to beep in one and not the other. This would be the same for all metal collar stays regardless of material composition, including precious metals. Again, they see them every day and it's a pretty common wardrobe accessory.
In my opinion, they are so easy to use, that dropping them into the bowl with your keys, rings, cuff links etc... takes just a few seconds and you're on your way. A few seconds (on an occasional trip) vs. the every day time savings and fantastic appearance is a nice deal to me.
