How to Fold a Suit in a Suitcase
By Diana Ganz on 2018-01-11
It’s the time of year many of us find ourselves jet-setting to destination weddings or busy with business trips. Even if you don’t have any travel on the horizon, knowing how to pack a suit is always handy. Especially, because airlines are constantly restricting luggage options and if you don’t want to pay a fortune, you’re going to want to consolidate everything to one carry-on. But wait, how the heck can a suit be folded so it’s not a wrinkled mess?
Here are eight simple steps to folding and packing your suit like a professional jet-setter:
Step 1 – Un-button jacket and lay it face-down
Step 2 – Flip collar up and fold left shoulder of jacket back
Step 3 – Pull right sleeve and shoulder inside out
Step 4 – With the left sleeve laying smooth and flat, tuck the left shoulder into the right shoulder
Step 5 – Fold jacket in half
Step 6 – Fold trousers along crease to preserve the crease down the leg
Step 7 – Place folded jacket on the center of trousers
Step 8 – Fold trouser bottoms over jacket and finish by folding top of trousers over
