How to pack a tuxedo for shipping

Whether you wish to pack a tuxedo in a suitcase or send a suit via courier, here are some instructions on how to pack a suit without it wrinkling.

  1. Fold a suit jacket: On a flat surface, fold the left sleeve to slightly overlap the center of the coat. Straighten the sleeve and place a piece of foam wrap on top. Repeat for the right sleeve, then fold the suit jacket in half lengthwise.
  2. Fold a shirt: Fold both sleeves towards the middle, taking care not to overlap them. Roll the shirt lengthwise into a tube shape.
  3. Fold trousers: Fold the pants lengthwise so that each leg covers the other.
  4. Fold the entire suit: Place the shirt inside the sleeve of the suit jacket. Place the folded tuxedo jacket in the middle of the trousers and cover with a piece of foam wrap.
  5. Extra protection: Cover the folded suit with tissue paper, foam wrap or place neatly into a plastic bag to ship a suit without wrinkling during transport.
  6. Cardboard box: Place the garment into an appropriately sized suit shipping box, or if you are shipping multiple suits, place into a box and use packing foam to fill any gaps.
