If you’ve ever had to travel for work, you’ve probably run into the issue of having a wrinkled business shirt. You probably didn’t realize it until about 2 hours before you were scheduled to make one of the biggest presentations of your professional career and begin to frantically search around the hotel room for an iron. After you’re unable to locate one, you call down to the front desk screaming like a mad man hoping they can get you one. After 20 minutes, they arrive at your hotel room with a crappy $10 iron that requires you to then fill up with water and wait another 5 minutes to get warm. That is the best case scenario when most likely it will be that you’re unable to iron the shirt in time and you’ll think that every time the CEO looks at your suit he is noticing the glaring wrinkles you have everywhere. If this sounded like a real situation, it’s because we’ve actually been there before. Traveling with dress shirts can be a nightmare and nobody wants to throw an iron into their luggage… until now.
We found out about a product called Collar Perfect and they were nice enough to send us a free demo to try out. This product is really unique and perfect for the businessman or businesswoman that is always on the go. Collar Perfect kind of looks like a giant clip with each side of the clip being part of the iron. When it is in the “clip mode” you’re able to easily fix those annoying wrinkles between buttons on a dress shirt or create the perfect crease on a collar. The clip mode is also perfect for creases in pants and even skirt hems which is awesome enough by itself. We even ironed the pocket of our dress shirt and realized that while in the clip mode, the size fit perfectly into the pocket (giving us the sought after perfectly ironed dress shirt pocket). Collar Perfect utilized every inch of their available design though by allowing the “wings” of the product to fold out so you basically have a traditional flat iron for when you need to iron larger portions (the back of a dress shirt for example).
You also have the options for multiple iron settings like: linen, denim, cotton, wool, silk, and poly. Since you have just about every fabric covered, this portable travel iron should work perfect for any trip you’re on. We also loved how the power cord was actually easy to manipulate in different iron settings and didn’t always get in the way or make you fumble around trying to maneuver with it. When Collar Perfect first approached Gadgets 4 Guys about their product, we had some concern around what we thought the price tag might be. We figured that you would have to pay for the convenience that they delivered but were VERY surprised with the extremely affordable $34.95 price tag.
Over the years we have reviewed a ton of products. Some a lot better than others but we’ve realized that a quick way to create an awesome gadget is to a) fulfill a need and b) do so with a high level of convenience. Collar Perfect managed to hit on both of those cylinders with the product and they get a big thumbs up of approval from Gadgets 4 Guys. Click here for image source and to buy Collar Perfect.
