Unless you’re comfortable flying in a jacket and dress pants, you’ll need to learn how to fold them if you want to minimize wrinkles and creases. Here are some tips how to pack a suit and still look good overseas.

 

  • Start by turning the right sleeve inside out.
  • Take the left sleeve with your right arm and place it inside the right (inside out) sleeve, thereby folding the jacket vertically in half.
  • Line up the ends of the suit jacket and bring the sleeves over the jacket cloth.
  • Fold down from the top of the jacket until it packs down.

 

Pants are easy enough to fold; the problem is in avoiding creases. To prevent this, you’ll want to put some space between the layers, so wrap your pants around your folded suit jacket. You can also use any other articles of clothing you are packing. The added thickness will prevent a crease from forming underneath the weight.

 

Suit bags are another option, but they might count as a piece of luggage. You could ask the flight attendant to place it in the jacket pocket, but they might tell you to fold it in half and place it in the overhead compartment, which defeats the purpose of the bag.

Thriftbooks

Sometimes it can feel like splurging on books is more expensive than it should be. Prices for novels are high and, for some, unaffordable. Even older titles, considered classics, can cost more than someone bargained. Many turned to reading books online or downloading audio files because it’s a cheaper alternative to physical books. However, what about the population of readers who love to read from paperbacks and hardcovers? Thankfully, there are companies like Thriftbooks that make it possible to afford books.
