Philip Pravda comes from a long line of suit-makers – 100 years and four generations of family experience in the business. Owner of the luxury men’s suit brand Suitcafe, Philip is no stranger to handling fine fabrics.
Recently, I had to pack a suit for an overseas trip. Firstly, I wasn’t really sure that my light garment bag would stand up to the rigours of baggage handlers. Secondly, I didn’t want to go out and spend a fortune on an item I would only use once or twice a year. And finally, I didn’t want to have to pay for an extra bag on the flight.
So I did some research, asking the question: how do I pack a suit into my bag without wrinkling it too much, and certainly without damaging it?
Somehow, I found this video – and it’s brilliant. It truly works a treat. The perfect way to fold a suit for travel.
So, forget the garment bag the next time you travel. This 100-year-old secret to folding a suit jacket without wrinkles is so ingenious, you’ll wonder how it’s not common knowledge.
Why not try it for yourself?
