The shot is framed too tight, preventing from seeing the entire jacket.

All this does is make a mess.

This was a video from long ago and I was able to remake it twice. Here is the most popular version of this video with a slo-mo component. It may work out better for you. Give it a try: https://youtu.be/gQFwepmvL7A

DOESN’T WORK !!! ANYTIME you introduce a fold you introduce a WRINKLE ! As a twenty five year airline pilot that commutes to and from work I do this with my uniform blazer before I put it up into the overhead bin when I arrive at the destination the blazer looks like it’s been in a cigar box !

Hi. The fold has worked for 1000s of people as you can read in the comments. I use it myself on long trips like Italy and Argentina. Try my updated video, it has slo-mo and a better in depth explanation. https://youtu.be/gQFwepmvL7A

Great job, folding a black jacket in front of your dark blue jacket. Nothing is visible

So you’re telling my the sleeves just magically end up straight with no wrinkles? FALSEEEEE
SUITCAFE (3 months ago)
i again. It's not magic. If you lay the jacket in the luggage with a simple fold over your arm at the end the sleeves are fine. I always hang my jackets when I get to the hotel, but in any event I have never had to press anything upon arrival and that includes a long trip from NY to Buenos Aires.

Ronny R (10 months ago)
Phillip, I though you should know this: A 200$ doesn't care how you fold it. Maybe it is better coming out that way. But those suites you are supposed to unbutton when you sit down, you should never fold like soft cloth like this. Remember, you should always unbutton them when you sit. Why? Because of their cost of "molding" and the canvas that remembers drape and your body shape. Canvas is "sandwiched" between lining and the surface cloth, so are shoulder paddings. If you flip them entirely, twice each time when you fold, and one more time unfold, it is not good!
Ronny R (10 months ago)
Very Misleading!
SUITCAFE (10 months ago)
As I said before, look up my posts on your prior comments.
Ronny R (10 months ago)
Do NOT fold your suit jacket at all! I did it following his presentation, and the floating chest piece "floated" after a short flight and the jacket is no longer the same! I guess it might work for a cheap or even half canvased jacket. But not for Zegna or Canali.
Ronny R (10 months ago)
The whole idea it as you say to prevent wrinkle. But I am telling you wrinkles can NOT be prevented this way. It folds once or twice around the waist line. It is probably less intrusive not to flip the jacket when you fold it. The jacket folding you described may be the lesser of evils, and it does cause shoulders and fronts to look and drape differently. The most illusively intrusive is to flip the shoulder paddings and linings twice inside out and completely. In the past, I have put two or three suit jackets in a good hanger and cover them in a bag that comes with the suits, attach the hanger to the hold inside Samsonite checkin suitcase, and fold them once. No wrinkles or other issues.
SUITCAFE (10 months ago)
Ron, you are missing the point here. First, not all Zegna is full canvas. Canali is always full canvas. In any event, the entire point of full canvas garments, regardless of what you do to it, fold, wash, dry clean, press, sleep, or dig a ditch in it, does not matter. Full canvas means that their is only fabric stitched to fabric. No man made materials such as glue, inside the garment. This is why full canvas is so expensive and sought after. With that said, a fold cannot ruin a jacket. It is impossible. Full canvas ALWAYS goes back into shape. Now if the garments you are talking about are not real Canali or Zegna, possible fakes, then I cannot comment on how they are made. Please read my comments on my other videos regarding your statements.

If you did not catch it just watch the Airline crew fold their jackets on your next flight. Especially with crew changes the Capt. or Co. Capt will come back and stow his jacket using this method. Basically you are just turning it inside out with one shoulder sticking into the other.

Borislav Gridnev (1 year ago)
SUITCAFE (1 year ago)
+Borislev Gridnev Hi you mean your jacket doe snot have shoulder pads inside. It is more sporty type jacket. Folding for a jacket from a suit or a sporty type as you have can be folded this way. Go through the same motions even if you don't have any padding in the shoulders or have an unconstructed jacket without even a lining. Get back and tell me how it went. Be well.

Because there is no tutorial on how to fold a normal jacket. I don't know how to pack a normal one.

CzaterXarax (1 year ago)
Watching the video my worry was about the shoulder structure, it seems to get some pressure from the rolling, which is absolutely the opposite of what you suggest (and I have intuitively done for years), when you turn the shoulder upside out to protect their structure, which is a fundamental, part of the jacket.
SUITCAFE (2 years ago)
+maartenornee Thanks for the reply. I guess the main idea is my fold you can do yourself without having to purchase anything, so anyone can learn how to do it. Be well.
maartenornee (2 years ago)
Hi again, I took a closer look at this product, but I think I have to disagree with you. Since you do not fold the cloths, but only loosly roll them. The raised egde on the sides prevent the cloths from being pressed on. So no pressure is put on the cloths, which subsequently cause no creases in the cloths. As I designer I am always fond of such new handy inventions. Objective reviews from users who had this product also show that it seems to work.
SUITCAFE (2 years ago)
+maartenomee Hi, I watched the video you suggested and the rolling method has a fatal flaw for folding tailored men's clothing and the rolling is the part that does not work. Reason being is that you cannot roll shoulder padding or tailored structure around the sleeve head. This needs to be folded flat in luggage and not rolled. When folding it flat it holds it's pressing from the factory and that is why when unfolding with my method the jacket fits properly and does not have any wrinkles. Hope that helps.
J Mo (2 years ago)
Does this work for any suit jacket or specifically ones tailored for travel ?

SUITCAFE (2 years ago)
Hi +K nonymous I could not see your comment so sorry for the late reply. I know that video very well and I can tell you if you fold your jacket that way and put it in luggage it will come out completely wrinkled and crushed. If you watch that other video the jacket is being folded same as you would fold a sweater. The difference is that a sweater does not have any shoulder structure or padding. This is paramount in my fold where the shoulder is flat and not folded. This is the main reason that when using my fold handed down for 4 generations, your jacket springs back into action.

+superflylaurie Hey Superfly. You're right about that, but the fold works regardless. That was my first video. I certainly made a follow up upon request so check this one out. https://youtu.be/h_dwqicn5No

I feel like I missed a step because you didn't show exactly everything you were doing.
SUITCAFE (3 years ago)
+pf161821 Sorry for that. Please watch my updated video here. It may be more clear to you. Here it is: https://youtu.be/h_dwqicn5No

It didn't work for me. I had to use my hotel's room iron to get rid of the wrinkles because I had a meeting right after I checked in

How was your meeting? 😁
SUITCAFE (3 years ago)
Hi +SpazzieWazzie sorry to hear that. Are you certain the shoulders were flat? That part is key for this to work properly. Try it again on your way home from the trip. Maybe watch the video again as well. Thanks

can you do a video on how can i fold my suit for my rucksack? will this technique work?
SUITCAFE (3 years ago)
+Devershi Chandra Yes, Ill make an update video just for you.
SUITCAFE (3 years ago)
+Devershi Chandra Hi, yes please fold in the same way. You may even want to give the jacket one extra fold over at the end to better fit in the rucksack, but his will work well for you.

all that work no need i travel with hi end linen suits no folding wrinkel are in..
SUITCAFE (3 years ago)
+Osca Alva Hi, you are correct. Linen has the wrinkles built in. I love linen and the wrinkles. That's the look of linen. Thanks for watching the vid. Catch me live on Periscope @SUIT_CAFE or SUITCAFE Official.

The video could focus more on the folding process than the guy
SUITCAFE (1 month ago)
More on the folding. Less of the guy https://youtu.be/gQFwepmvL7A

Hi , you are correct - that is why I made a second more in depth video on how to do this fold that has been used for 4 generations. I have it up on my channel. Thanks for watching- Phil

Maybe you could turn down the music in your subsequent videos. It should be in the background so it doesn't compete with your instructions. Also, it's hard to see what you're doing with the jacket as most of time it's below the bottom of the frame and the jacket is too dark. Other than that, thanks!

Michael Kelem agree, basically useless video
SUITCAFE (3 years ago)
+Michael Kelem Hi, yes this video came out with the music too loud. Watch my update to this fold and it's better.

Used this method last week but it appears that no matter how well you fold it, if you use soft luggage and the jacket is crushed between the case or other clothing it *will* get creased/wrinkled. Maybe a bit less than the method I've used in the past but not by much.

Hi TubeSurferGeek If you try this more in depth video you may get better results https://youtu.be/gQFwepmvL7A

"Slowly". I don't understand the 3rd step like at all. Fold the jack shoulders in and line everything up and then push them back out? Makes no sense to me.
SUITCAFE (1 month ago)
Hi Harlan Mcleod, I thought you would enjoy this newer version with slo-mo. https://youtu.be/gQFwepmvL7A
SUITCAFE (4 years ago)
+Harlan Mcleod Hi Harlan. I gave a more in depth reply to your comment on my video. i hope it helped out, but here is the link to an even more in depth video I did of the same fold. Be well. https://youtu.be/h_dwqicn5No
SUITCAFE (4 years ago)
Hi, when you are holding the shoulders together line up the lapels by holding the lapel edges together . Once the lapels are lined up push both shoulders through effectively folding the jacket in half vertically. I hope this description helps . If not I have another video later than this one where I explain more in depth.

How about necktie video on how to fold it so the customer does not get a wrinkled tie, especially if I dont have a special necktie box. Thank you!
SUITCAFE (4 years ago)
+Michelle Sills Hi, I made the video on how to fold a tie for travel. I hope you like it and find it informative. SUITCAFE.COM 3.0 is launching in a few days stay tuned: https://youtu.be/yIbPEETINkU

+Michael Fournier Ties can certainly wrinkle, but usually where you fold it over, over time. The silk and interior lining tends to keep a soft fold, not really a crease. I will be making a video of this.
Michael Fournier (4 years ago)
+Michelle Sills +Michelle Sills Hmmm never ever had a quality tie wrinkle no matter how it is folded unless you purposely wet it and crumple it in a ball I can't see how you would get wrinkles in a tie.
SUITCAFE (4 years ago)
+Michelle Sills Thanks so much, very appreciated. 
Michelle S (4 years ago)
I did watch how to tie a necktie. I figure I need to know how to do that too because I have ties for sale also in my shop. You make it look so easy. I actually have a tie I practice with. YEESSS of course I have subscribed right after watching the very first video!
