Have you took the cardboard stiffeners out from between the collar and shirt? A daft question I know but easily done!

yep each shirt had 8 pins it it and plastic round the color and cardboard removed all them. and they are still hard after the first wash

Maybe Elvis designed them???

They will have been properly starched by the manufacturers, gonna be very difficult to soften, age is the best softener. I've heard mixed results using something like dylon easy iron spray but no personal experience.
