What's really scary is knowing what model of collar he's wearing.

The Clericool gets that little dimple under the chin, where it attaches to the shirt. They're made of #2 (milkjug) plastic, which believe it or not, is far more comfortable than the traditional ones.

The traditional ones are from the Pontiff line, made from acetate in Leominster, Mass. and they give you prickly heat like you can't imagige If you have any Adam's apple and fit too tight they're suffocating.

I wear cloth covered plastic ones -- the kind of plastic that shirt stays are made of -- I got in Rome. Cloth collars, if very well starched, are available and I know one minister who wears them.

I'm a fan of cloth collars... and, a tip from my mother-in-law (and priest's wife) - keep them wrapped around coffee cans, and steam them that way, and they hold their shape very nicely

Oh my. I know Hank. Haven't seen him in years. Looking well, I'd say.

OK, so my very first thought was, "wow, what great teeth, I don't see a single filling in there"! What are PeaceBang's thoughts on dental care amd teeth whitening for ministers? :-)

PeaceBang would LOVE to get her teeth whitened professionally, but when she asked her hygenist about, she laughed at me and said my teeth were already very white.
They're really not, though. I don't know what that broad is thinking.

Anyway, a big, bright smile is an ASSET to the ministry, of course!

Re: collars. I would avoid ANY item of clothing that, by simply wearing it and holding a beer and smiling broadly, becomes Hilarious! Outrageous! Hysterical!

I think the key to this collar humor is that it is half-off. (And Hank, well he's so expressive.)

Most clothes cause merriment when they're half off. Some more than others.
