How to Pack your Suit in 6 Easy Steps

There was a time when travel was a special occasion in itself. Passengers would board in their finest attire, the airplane food was impressive and there were less limitations on luggage. However, things have changed and the modern gentleman must adapt. If your baggage allowance permits it, carry your suit in an Aristocracy London suit bag, which is waterproof, breathable and comes free with every suit order. If you need to fit everything in your carry-on, follow our step-by-step guide to pack your suit and keep it as wrinkle-free as possible.

The foolproof guide to packing your 3 piece suit in the suitcase

Step 1
Lay you jacket flat on a table or the bed.

Step 2
Without buttoning, smooth any wrinkles.

Step 3
Cross the sleeves so that the left sleeve touches the right shoulder and the right sleeve touches the left shoulder.

Step 4
Now take the trousers and, maintaining the crease, fold in three. Then place them over the top half of the jacket.

Step 5
Without buttoning the waistcoat, smooth any wrinkles exactly as you did with the jacket. Then fold it in two and lay it on top of the trousers.

Step 6
Cover the waistcoat and trousers with the bottom half of the jacket. You’ve just created a tidy compact parcel.

Bonus tip
Place the folded suit in a plastic bag and seal without removing all the air. This will shield the suit from stains and friction while the trapped air will add an extra layer of protection.
