Have you ever had the moment where you are packing for your upcoming trip and everything is going so smoothly that it's almost to good to be true? You have butterflies in your stomach and you're daydreaming about the adventures you are about to embark on. You are thinking to yourself how awesome you are at making everything fit in this 20 kg bag, and if there were any awards for luggage packing, you would definitely be getting at least 3 awards: "The best looking packer", "Packing like a boss" and of course "The most outfits packed that in reality I'm never going to were, but I take them anyway. Because I can"! Then out of the blue, you realize that the only thing left to fold is your favorite blazer. You whisper out into the darkness that has emerged, "Damn you blazer"! Who in the world knows how to properly fold a freaking blazer!!
Now you can say goodbye to the troubles and darkness that your blazer once brought to your packing!
This is how you properly fold a blazer:
First you throw it over your shoulder and try to look as cool as you can. Then you hold it out with both hands.
Take your left hand and put it inside the right sleeve and turn it inside out.
Now turn the blazer around so that the the backside is showing. Then tuck the non-folded sleeve (the left one) in to the inside out one. Basically, fold the jacket in half and make the shoulder pads meet. Doing it with a smile makes it more fun by the way :)
Now you are almost done, the blazer is now inside out and the last step is to fold it in half, putting the one sleeve in between.
