bag or top box for shirts.
« on: May 17, 2018, 12:59:14 pm »
Might seem like a strange ask?
However using top box etc as commuting to work every day or as often as weather allows. Over the last 2 years been in an office. Usually pack the shirts in bag and then in top box etc.
However shirts always creased on arrival. Has anybody seen a box or bag that flat and squarish that would take a shirt folded in half. Dont want a massive box, something flatish and just big enough.
May not exist but worth a try.

Thinking outside the box (sorry, couldn't help it) these non-iron shirts may help keep the wrinkles at bay - it did for me:

I always used my Givi Business Case when I was working. A large, square, flat briefcase style box, posh enough to take in to a client meeting and small enough to carry conveniently. However, they no longer seem to make it. Ebay might produce one.

I never have a problem with work shirts packed in a normal top box. It all depends on how you fold them but you will always get (neat) creases along the folds unless you have a huge box.

I use the Eagle Creek range when travelling.  For shirts (and trousers) I use one of these:

They are excellent, and minimise creasing.

Correct rear brake use is scientifically proven to shorten stopping distances in EVERY road situation.

Show you know what you're doing and use your rear brake!

Not a good look for business shirts...

In Spain, a few guys asked where I got my shirts pressed. They wouldn't believe that they came out of the box looking so good. And for things that matter, like business shirts, I never roll it just makes the wrinkles more obvious.

When my folded shirts go in the stack I KNOW there are no creases apart from on the folds. When you roll, the material has to wrinkle, it's a law of physics.

One word - polyester.

You were looking at the ads?

I love the simpering text. It says rather more about how dumb men can be, believing a crease-free shirt could start that train of thought.

She's actually saying, 'Graph paper? Must be a nerd.'
