How to Fold a Dress Shirt for Packing

When packing a suitcase for a trip, proper folding will go a long way in ensuring that your clothing arrives as wrinkle-free as possible. For everyday items like t-shirts, underwear, and shorts, the Ranger roll is an effective method for packing as much as possible in as small a space as possible. But while the Ranger roll does a decent job in minimizing wrinkles, for garments like dress shirts that you want to unpack at your destination in as smooth and pristine condition as possible, you’ll need to take a different folding approach.

In this illustrated guide, we highlight one way to fold a dress shirt for packing. It’s easy and does a good job in reducing wrinkles. If your shirt does have a few wrinkles when you pull it out of your suitcase, hang it up in the bathroom while you’re taking a hot shower; the steam will help release the creases and crinkles.
