Linen suits are a favored choice of travelers due to their loose-fitting nature, which is well suited for warmer temperatures. They also offer a classy but casual look that is desirable. Though a comfortable choice, these suits unfortunately are prone to wrinkling, especially if they are folded too many times. To properly pack a linen suit, you will require a suitcase large enough to fold your linen suit correctly or else risk wrinkling or even tearing and ripping the suit's fabric.
Lay the suit jacket face down, with the buttons closed, on a flat surface.
Remove any folds or wrinkles in the jacket with your hands.
Fold the right shoulder and left shoulder to the center of the suit until they meet up, making sure the fold is matched up on the same line all the way down to the bottom of the jacket.
Carefully lay each of the arms completely flat on the suit jacket.
Gently fold the jacket in half, lengthwise, by evenly placing the right half over the left half.
Grab the bottom of the suit jacket and slowly fold it onto the top of the jacket.
Gently place the jacket as it is at the bottom of the suitcase.
Fold the suit trousers in half at the knees.
Fold the left side of the trousers over the right side until they are even.
Gently place the trousers on top of the suit jacket in the suitcase.
