Gucci Shirt - Drape?

I have been buying mostly Armani Collezioni or Theory shirts and I liked the cut (slim / tailored) and drape.

Recenly I purchased my first Gucci shirt and while the cut and style is tremendous the "drape" seems very stiff.

I put on one of my other shirts and off the rack it hangs softly.

The Gucci shirt (while 100% cotten like the others) feels stiff as if "starched". I can grab a area, pull it out, and it stays erect.

Is these something they put on shirts to keep them from wrinkling that will wash off in time? I don't want to wash it and see because then I feel uncomfortable returning it. On the other hand ths is an unaccpetable drape for a piece of apparel and I have not seen it with the other brands.

Thank you for sharing your experience.
