In Depth How To Fold A Jacket For Any Trip No Wrinkles Best Slow Motion

1092 ratings | 187588 views
Over 1,000,000 people have viewed my original video on how to fold a suit jacket. Many have asked for a more in-depth, slower description of the jacket folding for luggage or a suitcase. Here, the fold is done in a much better lighting where every step can be seen in its entirety including a close crop, slow-motion version at the end. Stop and pause each section of this tutorial to master the fold. It's a trick of the trade that's been handed down to me from generations of clothiers in my family. It really works!

Thank you so much. I've finally gotten to know the right way to fold my jacket. I have a question. My suit trousers are tight for my thighs. When I wear them, there are no additional room around my thigh. Should I buy new suit trousers for my job interview? I appreciate your answer in advance.

​@983 589 Good luck on the interview. You should look at my black CashLana™ suit. I put a link here: http://www.suitcafe.com/first-time-buying-a-suit-cashlana/ If you enjoy something more luxurious look at the super 150s wool black suit here: http://www.suitcafe.com/online-suit-shop-italian-fabric/

​@SUITCAFE I will follow your advice. I think I also have no choice but to get a new pants, considering my interviewers are Japanese. They are conservative. When you do job hunting in Japan, you must wear black suits. no other colors are accepted. Thank you so much for your advice.

Thank you for watching the video. So you say the thigh area is tight. If you do not have fabric inside to let out a good tailor can add a piece of fabric between the legs in the crotch area. This will give you more room in the thigh because the crotch which is probably also tight will drop down a bit. If not then you need to buy a new pant in a new size. Thanks.

I have tried this on several occasions and my sleeves always end up wrinkled.
SUITCAFE (5 months ago)
George Dean Hi George. Please see my above reply. If you let the jacket hang on a hangar for a short time, any unforeseen wrinkles should disappear.
SUITCAFE (5 months ago)
Rick Lee if you let your garment hand for a few hours any wrinkles should fall out.
George Dean (5 months ago)
@Rick If only you could take an iron aboard a cruise ship. ;-( Instead, it must go to housekeeping and it can take anywhere from a day to two to get your garment back.
Rick (5 months ago)
I had the same thing, but fortunately sleeves are quick and easy to iron at your hotel. The best thing about this method is that it keeps the shoulders from getting rumpled, as the shoulders are a pain to iron properly.
SUITCAFE (5 months ago)
Hello. n the last part of this fold please gently let the jacket naturally fold lover your arm and place in your luggage. Sleeves should come out fine. Make sure they are straight until your fold over at the end. Thanks.

Dear Sir, I have nothing but praise and thanks for your wonderful advice. I have been traveling for many years and this is by far the best advice anyone has given me. I am convinced the airlines would die to have your content on their inflight systems. I wish you all the best with this channel.
SUITCAFE (5 months ago)
James Lau thanks so much, glad you keep using this fold.
James Lau (5 months ago)
An update for you: since this last comment I, I have used this method on a week trip and it is nothing short of wonderful. If you work and travel, you are in the presence of a genuine friend in this presenter.
SUITCAFE (5 months ago)
Hi, thanks for the great idea!!!!

My uncle showed me how to do this 50 years ago, but by the time I really needed it, he had passed away. Thanks for the review. (Timing is everything: I wore suits and sports jackets throughout my career, but now that I'm retired, I rarely do.)
SUITCAFE (6 months ago)
This was in my family as well as far back as my great grandfather. Glad you enjoyed. Be well.
Phillip Snider (6 months ago)
Thank you. I tried this and NO wrinkles or creases at all. I put my folded dress shirts in an Eagle Creek Pack-It folder and pladed that between the upper half and bottom half folds. This fits perfects in the top of my carry on.
SUITCAFE (6 months ago)
Glad this worked well for you. Making new videos. Stay tuned.

Most confusing part is how you grab shoulders in one hand
SUITCAFE (5 months ago)
Watch the slow motion portion a few times. Only takes a bit of practice.

Wow... thanks a lot bro!
Noel Thomas (9 months ago)
SUITCAFE yes bro! It’s really cool and worked out
SUITCAFE (9 months ago)
You got it, glad the fold helped out.
Spidy Duz It (9 months ago)
Is this method better than just folding the suit in half ?
Spidy Duz It (9 months ago)
@SUITCAFE thanks
SUITCAFE (9 months ago)
Hi, It is because the shoulder pads become flat and this is the key to avoiding a wrinkled jacket.
Preston Williams (9 months ago)

Eric Winn Glad you liked this video. I hope you had a chance to view a few of my others.

Will the sleeves be wrinkle free?

This DOES NOT work for full canvased suit!!! I tried, and regretably damaged my Canali! The suit jacket was in the carry-on, and it will nver get back to what it was!!!
SUITCAFE (1 year ago)
As I mentioned in my response to your prior post, any real full canvas Canali suit or jacket will have no problem being folded this way or any way. That is the beauty of full canvas. That is why Canali suits start around $1895. I have had many Canali suits over the years, folded them all this way and sometimes do not open the luggage for 3 days upon my return from a trip. They use the best fabrics that allow any wrinkles to fall off the garment without pressing. This fold is able to minimize the wrinkling by making the shoulder pads flat. That is the key to this fold.

You are the best!
SUITCAFE (1 year ago)
Efaon Cobb great to hear Mr. Cobb. Im glad this fold worked for you.

I’m packing my suit for my 5th and final interview. I’m flying overseas with about 19 hours total travel time and was worried about my suit being wrinkled going into my interview, but I found your very great, step by step video and that’s one less thing I have to worry about. Thank you for posting!! I will let you know how it worked!
lifeisgoodenjoydaryd (1 year ago)
Update: Got the job! Suit was perfect after the flight and my flight was delayed and I had almost no time to get ready after I landed. If I did not fold it following your direction I would have gone to the interview with a wrinkled suit. I’m so happy I found your video!!!! Thanks!!!!
J T (1 year ago)
I'm headed to Japan tomorrow with 2 suits... total travel time before unpacking at the hotel will be about 23 hours. I will use your method and report back. Thank you in advance.

lol.. i was going to comment that you went too fast and didn't show enough of the suit but you obviously know that. great work.
SUITCAFE (1 year ago)
dasugo Hi. Hopefully its realized that this can be done quickly and easily. The slow motion really helps with each step. Thanks.

Maybe use a lighter color jacket next time...
SUITCAFE (1 year ago)
Hi, the lighter jacket doesn't make much difference, but this lighter lining seems to have for most viewers.
Marco Kropp (1 year ago)
I knew there was a way!! I've invented or discovered on my own, but not satisfaction until.... (I'll give this method a try next week) . Thanks!
SUITCAFE (1 year ago)
Glad you liked this video.
SUITCAFE (1 year ago)
Marco Kropp I think you will really like the outcome. I hope the slow motion at the end of the video was helpful.
damonrh (1 year ago)
Thanks for redoing the video!
SUITCAFE (1 year ago)
Glad you found it useful. I think the slo-mo at the end really helps.
