I believe these were used on shirts with attachable collars. The flat part went against your skin and the 'bob' went through the 'button hole' in the shirt to hold it on. Then the neck 'tie' covered it! Hope this helps!
Collar-bobs arrived on the market in the 1940s and, after rapidly declining sales due to the change in men's fashion, became the subject of contentious litigation in Texas.See: Schoenberg v. Forrest, 228 S.W.2d 556 (Tex. Civ. App. 1950) andSchoenberg v. Forrest, 253 S.W.2d 331 (Tex. App. 1952)
Thanks for the info!
