jpig98How to Pack a Suit for Travel ?
What's the best way to pack a suit for travel? Are you a fan of rolling it up ? The objective is to protect the cloth and to minimize wrinkles.
VictorCWhat is a travel suit? What are the specifications for a travel suit? I went into a shop the other day and a suit had advertizing on it say it was a travel suit. Why would i buy a TRAVEL suit as opposed to a normal one?
I'd be interested in finding out more about this box...is it a FedEx box, or do you supply it yourself? Do you have to use a new one each time you ship? I travel quite a bit, and have gotten to really despise the whole luggage ordeal.These days, my suits, shirts, ties, shoes, etc. are packed in a sturdy double-wall cardboard box slightly larger than the dimensions of a suit coat.
Whenever I see suits advertised as travel suits typically they are using a fabric that has a good wrinkle resist and often some stretch, such as an estrato fabric. They are usually designed to be more accommodating to those who sit down, stand up, move around, and get cramped into small airplane seats. I'm not sure they are miracle workers for stretch and wrinkles, but they usually handle it better.
To answer the above, I found suit-sized boxes at a pack and ship store. They last about five or six Fed Ex round-trips and costs about $7
