Frank: I remember those SI starched collars well. You knew you had it right if you could flick your collar with a finger and hear a solid "thwack" -- like striking sheetrock.

That was a tough look to achieve. Unfortunately, Westlake didn't have any decent Chinese laundries in 1966.

My poor mom repeatedly tried using Vano Spray Starch on my collars, but with absolutely no luck. My collars never had the real "chin cutter" quality that a professional laundry could produce.
