Before you try to pack the suit, it is important to fill your suitcase with all other pieces of clothing.



On the top:

Before you try to pack the suit, it is important to fill your suitcase with all other pieces of clothing. The suitcase needs to be almost full in order to pack the suit tight. Do not put the suit at the bottom of the travel case, as it will then come out all wrinkled.



Take your time:

Suits should be put facing up across the suitcase. The collar should be at least an inch below the hinge of the suitcase top. The arms of the coat should be folded neatly over the front. Also, don’t rush while packing the suit. Take your time to pack it avoid untidy creases.



Fold it up:

Place your trousers in the same position as has been taken out from the hanger (folded) and lay them on top of the coat. Now, fold the coat bottom over the legs of the pants towards the hinge of the suitcase.



Prevent crushing:

Small articles, such as underwear and socks can be placed into the shoulders to prevent crushing. Also, as soon as you arrive your destination, remove the suit from your baggage and hang it to maintain a wrinkle-free look.



Hydro therapy:

It is best to wait until the last minute to pack your suit so that it is packed for the least amount of time. If, however, your


suit is creased, hang it in a closed bathroom with the shower on with hot water. The water molecules in the air will take care of the major creases.
