Friday Faux Pas: Starching

There is always the option when you go to the dry cleaners for your dress shirts or slacks; some of you do it, some of you don't. For those of you out there that don't participate, we'll done, and for the rest, it's time to stop.
Starching is the process of applying a starch formula to a clothing item in order to stiffen the fabric and maintain a crispness indicative of a freshly laundered shirt. Although I do applaud and support the fresh shirt cause, I'm not a fan of applying unnecessary measures on your clothes such as this. Starching, like all chemical processes, alters the state of the fabric it is applied to and can effect the integrity of the piece. Normal starching of a shirt can and will reduce the lifespan of an assumably expensive part of your wardrobe. Instead just have an extra shirt at your office to change into for that big meeting or whatever big occasion that may come your way.
