Traveling for business doesn't mean you need to pack a portable steamer. The simplest way to keep your suit from wrinkling is to wear it on the plane (and if you ask the flight attendant nicely, he or she may happily hang it for you in the first-class cabin locker even if you're traveling steerage).

But if you're committed to packing the suit (or transporting more than one), here's a step-by-step guide to doing it the right way.

SUITCASE

1. If the suit is still in the plastic liner and on a hanger provided by your dry cleaner, leave it like that.

2. Fold it in half horizontally.

3. Place it in the suitcase.

DUFFEL OR CARRY-ON

1. Hold the suit jacket with the liner facing you and turn one sleeve inside-out.

2. Fold the jacket in half lengthwise, lining up the shoulders and lapels.

3. Fold it over on itself horizontally.

4. Fold the trouser bottoms over the jacket and repeat with the top of the trousers.

5. Unpack everything immediately when you arrive at your destination, and if there are any minor creases, hang the suit in the bathroom and run a hot shower. The steam will remove the wrinkles—no portable steamer required.
