pack suits and shirts when trav­el­ing?

DA MAN - Style - - Style Faq -

A suit­case filled with wrin­kled pieces can be frus­trat­ing when ap­point­ments and events await. One of the few ways to avoid such a catas­tro­phe from hap­pen­ing is to im­prove your ba­sic pack­ing skills.

To prop­erly pack a suit, fold each sleeve of the suit to the cen­ter. Then, fold the trousers in three, and fold them in half again. Place them on top of the suit and fold the bot­tom of the suit over the top so that the trousers fit into one con­ve­nient pack­age. Place the folded items in a plas­tic bag but leave some air in­side to al­le­vi­ate some of the pres­sure caused by be­ing stuffed in a suit­case.

To pack a but­ton-down shirt, iron it first to smooth out any wrin­kles and but­ton it all the way up. Fold the sleeves just like how you nor­mally fold your shirt, but turn out the col­lar. Lay one shirt over another and fold them in­wards into each other. It is also ad­vis­able to put the shirt in a plas­tic bag, just like the suit.

If you do not have enough time to pack prop­erly, once you ar­rive at your des­ti­na­tion you can steam or iron them. Alternatively, fill a clean spray bot­tle with wa­ter and use it on the wrin­kles to dampen the suit or shirt, and then use your hand to smooth out the sur­face.
