    Packing Business Suits & Dress Shirts in Aeronaut 45

    Any suggestions on the best way to pack 2 business suits and 3 or 4 dress shirts in an Aeronaut 45, such that they arrive unwrinkled?

    Also, same question about packing a long overcoat or trench coat?

    Thanks for any advice!

    Packing Business Suits & Dress Shirts in Aeronaut 45

    I'm not an expert, but I can tell you what people here told me when I was trying to figure out my Western Flyer.

    4) people swear by eagle creek garment folders. They'll take pants and shirts.

    3) search YouTube for "How to pack a suit." There are variations. Several videos were useful. Like the EC, you get a flat package good for the A45.

    Now stuff you may not love, but that was the advice that kept me sane.

    2) Redefine "unwrinkled." I now touch up shirts with a hotel iron. A few minutes worth having one bag.

    1) Wear one of the jackets. I wear the jacket on the plane or train, and it arrives fine.

    The best way for me is to use this: http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00F9S...SNVTCTHV0TEDRA

    I travel often and use button downs, so this always keeps it wrinkle free.

    Another more expensive way is to invest in wrinkle free shirts like wool and prince

    I just travelled with my trenchcoat packed in an A45. First I removed the belt and packed it separately. I buttoned the coat, not all the way, just as I normally would wear it. Then I used the bundle packing method, wrapping it around a stack of conventionally-folded t-shirts and jeans. The edges arrived crumpled, but that was my fault for running late and just shoving the bundle into the bag!

    Thanks to everyone for the great information!

    No, I hadn't found the previous link about packing a business suit. Thanks! In that link, a TB video showed using an Eagle Creek garment sleeve, and mentioned that TB was in the process of developing a garment sleeve of its own... Did that ever become a product? Maybe I missed it, but I don't see it on the website.

    Thanks again for all the feedback. Very helpful!

    Due to my 6'-3" height, I have never been able to bundle pack without wrinkles. I have no trouble getting my petite 5'-4" wife's clothes to wrap cleanly in a bundle. Presumable if my bag were large enough, it would work.

    Good point imperator, I should have added that caveat! I too am 5' 4", so my bundle is quite compact, and when I take care to arrange it properly in the bag I can generally avoid wrinkles.
