Detachable collars for a certain sense of grandeur

Tonight I attended to my detachable collars to make sure they are ready for use. I love the look of detachable collars which gives the attire a certain sense of grandeur.
Tomorrow I will wear the double round collar with a striped shirt and my brown 1960s 3 piece suit to work.
I stock my detachable collars in a vintage Edwardian leather collar box. Lots of age and wear to the box, but beautiful in colours and shape.

I have wing collars for formal use with evening dress, but also collars to wear with lounge suits.

All collars are purchased from Darcy Clothing in East Sussex, England. I have chosen to acquire washable collars to ease the maintenance.
The studs are kept in a small leather stud box, that fits brilliantly in the middle.
I found the stud box at Ebay.
