What is the best way to travel with a suit (packing techniques, best type of luggage to use, how to ensure the airline won’t damage/wrinkle the suit, etc.)?
The main rule is that you don’t want to fold the jacket if you can avoid it, which usually means either those special suit-bags you see people carry or else to put it in the largest suitcase you are taking with you.
If you want to be absolutely sure that your posessions will not be treated roughly, then carry-on is the onyl way to go, because the people who stock the holds on commercial aircraft are focused primarily on doing things quickly.
Real Men Real Styles has a great article on how to pack suits and how to pack for a light business trip. Here’s the link http://www.realmenrealstyle.com/pack-light-business-trip/ . Hope this helps!
When packing your clothes and things, start with the heavier things on the bottom so that your suit won’t have wrinkle or folds on unneccessary places. Fold your dress shirts with a long horizontal fold and place them on top of your trousers.
Then turn your sport jackets inside out and fold into quarters. Place them evenly on top of your shirts.
If you still think that this can wrinkle your suits, you can bring a Steamfast Travel Steam Iron to help you with business travels,
