I've owned a few pairs of wurkin stiffs for over 6 years and my biggest problem in the past was losing the magnets. They usually hold great and keep my collar looking neat, preventing the "Saturday Night Fever" fly-away collar look. Occasionally, my messenger bag would pull my collar away and I'd lose a magnet down my shirt, but most of the time I didn't lose them completely. So I was pleased when I got another set via BirchBox. That was until I the first time I removed them after wear and when the magnets pulled together, a piece of each chipped off, leaving a jagged edge that I have be sure I now face away from my neck any time I wear them. Again, I love this product, but the particular set I received in this case was of sub-par quality.
