Lipstick on the collar, a telltale giveaway that he is cheating. This old trope has its roots in the days when most men wore shirts with collars and women wore lipstick that marked easily. The wife, doing her husband's laundry, finds a pink mark on her husbands collar and immediately concludes that he has a mistress. When the husband returns from work, he finds that he has been ExiledToTheCouch or [[DefenestrateAndBerate his belongings thrown outside]]. Most of the time in comedies it's NotWhatItLooksLike. The stain is ketchup, or the lipstick is from his grandmother pecking him on the cheek. See also AffairHair, a related trope.

For the variation not related to infidelity, see CoveredInKisses.
