Folded shirts (especially those from the cleaner) are the easiest for packing. The plastic sleeve and cardboard backing provide ease of packing and protection in the suitcase. If you are fortunate enough to be able to launder and iron your own shirts, I still recommend cardboard backing and a plastic sleeve for flat packing. Ironing at home always gives the shirts a better natural drape than starched professionally cleaned shirts. I'll return to it someday.
Stick your tie (chosen for the shirt) in the sleeve.
Keep your links on a pin, and they won't disappear. It also works for metal links, if they have enough gap at the hinge.
Sling the pocket square through.
Inside the plastic, they hold fast and unpack very easily... organized for your stay.
The ties and shirts pack flat with no wrinkling. The links and pocket squares sit safely tucked, and occupy very little space. The technique makes traveling for business or pleasure far easier. At your destination, leave each plastic-sleeved packet together until you wear them. For packing a suit, see this past post.
Feasting on seafood in Louisiana again. A King's cake (I think it was called) and chicory-scented coffee was served after lunch. Fat Tuesday preparations are in full swing, they tell me, and hospitality comes easy and naturally... even the roadside swamp-dives serve incredible food.
