How To Fold A Suit So It Doesn’t Wrinkle In Your Suitcase

by SharonKurheg

When Joe and I travel, there’s a rare occasion where he’ll have to bring a suit. We may be going to a wedding, a funeral or (humblebrag alert) we have this cool gig where we sometimes have the opportunity to sing in a choir at Lincoln Center or Carnegie Hall (yes, really!).

BTW, the 2 people singing out front? Nikki Renée Daniels and Quentin Earl Darrington:-)

Anyway, Joe always brings his suit with him as a carry-on, because it’s the only one he’s bringing and we can’t risk it getting lost. However, if that wasn’t the case, he’d be happy to pack it in his checked luggage. Well, except for the fact that it’d get pretty wrinkled. But now that doesn’t even have to be a factor. Take a look:


The incredible person in the video is Jacky Tam from British Tailors, 8-B Carnavarn Road, T.S.T., Kowloon, Hong Kong.

Although Mr. Tam didn’t specify what kind of bags he used, I suspect a regular gallon sized zipper bag would work for the shirt and a 2.5 gallon “Jumbo” bag would work for the jacket and trousers. Or if worse came to worse, the 2.5 gallon one for the shirt and Target/Walmart/hardware stores should carry the super duper sized ones, which are like 20″ x 24″, that would be big enough for the jacket and trousers.

Now That was what one would call informative thank you. Other bloggers should take note instead of some of the dribble and rehash

There’s definitely something to be said about posts about miles, points, airlines, hotels, credit cards, etc. Nothing wrong with those at all; it’s all what someone is more interested in reading, is all.

Anyway, glad you liked the post – we’d love if you shared it!

Wow ! Will practice his excellent technique later today. Must visit his shop next time in HK.

The video is several years old, but I looked it up and the shop is still there.
