If you travel often for business, chances are you’ve experienced the headache of trying to pack a suit in a way that will keep it clean and crisp upon arrival.

In the GIFs below, we’ll teach you a space-saving, wrinkle-free way to fold your suit jacket and pants so that it fits nicely in your carry-on bag. No extra hanging suit bag necessary with this technique.

Step 1

Turn one side of the suit jacket around, reach into the sleeve and pull it inside out.

Take the opposite sleeve (the right-side out one) and insert it into the sleeve that is inside out.
