Cotton shirts/khakis - starch or not?

I wear cotton button-downs and khakis to work just about every day, and everything gets the heavy starch treatment. Just curious...and bored.

Re: Cotton shirts/khakis - starch or not?

Dry clean slacks, shirts laundered w/o starch. I used to get light starch but the shirts don't seem to last as long when starched.

Nice poll, by the way.

Talk about being indecisive and acting like a woman.

T-shirts and jeans for me. When I want to look good, I make sure the jeans don't have holes.

Re: Cotton shirts/khakis - starch or not?

Target or Walmart: $12 for khakis, $6 for cotton shirts. Regular wash and dry and then iron them. They hold up just fine. When I need anything nicer for a dinner or something like that, I wear silks.
