So I'm about to hit the road again.
This time, I'm headed to Anaheim, California for VidCon.
I'm also hosting Business With Style, the first official meet-up that I know of for men who are interested in men's lifestyle and self-improvement.
As such – I need to pack my clothing for travel.
Now I've already covered 3 ways to pack a suit jacket.
So today I'm going to share ways to fold a dress shirt for travel.
This new men's style info-graphic is brought to you by my friends over at Lee Jeans. I'm wearing their modern series denim right now as I type, and find they make great all purpose jeans I can wear in the office, on the road, and even at a conference (matched with a jacket of course!).
Now you may be wondering – which shirt folding method is best at preventing wrinkles?
Unfortunately I find there isn't a sure way to completely prevent dress shirt wrinkling through proper folding.
What really determines the amount of wrinkling?
- The fabric type and weave of the shirt.
- How long your clothing is packed.
- How tightly your clothing is packed (less in the luggage the better!).
That being said – rolling works best for me.
But I always touch up my shirts before wearing and schedule time my first day at a conference to prepare all my clothing. It takes just an hour to steam the jackets & trousers, iron the shirts, and shine the shoes while watching ESPN. Then I'm done with it for the week!
Have any cool travel tips to share?
Did you catch my “hat tip” in the info-graphic to my friends that speak British-English?
