WATCH: Secret Tips for Packing a Jacket

UntitledJune 12, 2014

This is a short and simple packing trick that can make all the difference. 

Ever wonder why men always look so crisp and tidy even after a 10-hour trip? Their secret: they know how to fold a jacket. Us women tend to bundle them up, fold them in half, and shove them into the overhead compartment.

My many years of traveling have made me both an astute observer and a junky for new packing tips. And thanks to that, I have learned this trick from the boys.

Here’s how they do it:

Step 1: Invert one shoulder of the jacket.

Step 2: Insert the other shoulder into the inverted shoulder. Make sure that the lining of the jacket is outside of the fold. This is the guaranteed wrinkle-free trick!

Step 3: Fold in half. Voila! No more bundles of wrinkles.
