The improved weight of these is great and feels like a great step forward because they largely accomplish the same task as the previous model.
They are a bit overpriced and I wish that the difference in width from the original series was more transparent because a few of my shirts have slimmer collar stay pockets, but overall I am pleased with the new model.
Because I'm tall and prefer to de-emphasize my long neck, for years I have limited my dress and business casual shirts to only those with button-down collars. Thanks to Wurkin Stiffs, those days are over and I've been able to greatly expand my wardrobe with confidence.
