Aside from putting your pants on a hanger or carefully folding and packing them in your bag. Does anyone have a way of keeping your pants from getting wrinkled?

ya....don't sweat in them!

I once was on a business trip with a great old Mormon boss who was a master packer and he had all his pants folded by the pleats and then tightly rolled with rubber bands around each end. I thought it was the weirdest thing I had ever seen (until I saw his underwear) but, his pants looked great and he didn't have to lug a huge flat of hung attire through the terminals on trips.

Isn't this practice frowned upon by the Mormons?

A friend of mine travels a lot for work and likes to pack light. He takes a cardboard tube (like from wrapping paper) and then rolls all his clothes around it before he puts them in his carry-on. By rolling them, there are no creases. It works. No, I don't roll my ref pants on the way to a game.

Interesting solutions. If they work I'll send them to Hints from Helloise or however she spells her name.

You can buy one of those Eagle Creek packing devices that keeps close flat. I bought one about a year ago and it works perfectly. My pants always keep their shape. I am sure that the quality of the pants can affect how wrinkled they can get.

Peace

Don't you eventually have to wash them?

A NY official that I know(he's also a frequent contributor here) has a great practise that he uses. He bought a blow-up doll, and carries it to and from games with his pants and shirt on it. He swears by it- says that it keeps all of the wrinkles out of the pants and shirts.

And at halftime of dull games........

Yes, but the pants I wear do not lose there crease. You also cannot wash them with just anything and take them out of the dryer immediately. But I have owned a several pants over the years and they still have their shape the same day as I bought them. You cannot just throw them on the floor when you are not wearing them.

Peace
