Fold Like a Pro
Mastering some precision folding techniques ensures that you'll have an organized wardrobe of well-cared-for clothes. An orderly stack of shirts makes quick and easy work out of both dressing and packing. From a clever T-shirt filing system (that provides you access to the one you're looking for without disrupting the stack), to a wrinkle-free way to pack your dress shirts, we've rounded up some of the ultimate folding solutions. And they're easier than you might think.
Fold a face-down shirt in half lengthwise.
Fold both sleeves over and bring the bottom hem up to the collar.
Fold the stack in half once more making a small rectangle.
File them vertically in a drawer so the folded "spines" of the shirts are visible.
Sweaters & Long-Sleeves
Lay face-down, bringing the left sleeve to the right side of the hem.
Smooth any wrinkles on the side and repeat with the right side.
Fold the top half down over the lower half.
Stack of Shirts
Neatly pile the shirts together face-down, with arms spread wide.
Fold the top half of the stack over the bottom half.
Cross the sleeves across the top half.
Place the stack at the top of your suitcase and hang-up when you arrive.
