Travelling With Your Suits

John Cutler recommends:

  1. Contrary to popular opinion a suit can be packed in a case for travelling, if suitable care is taken with folding.
  2. Turn the suit coat inside out and reverse one of the armholes so that it fits into the other.
  3. Stuff the suit with tissue paper before packing.
  4. Fold the trousers at the knee, and again protect the fold with tissue paper.
  5. If packed correctly, and hung properly as soon as possible after arrival, your suit should be ready to wear within 24 hours.
  6. If badly creased, suits can be hung in the bathroom and steam generated by turning on the bath or shower. This will help the creases fall out.
  7. Always invest in a top quality suitcase, and/or suit pack.
