Some advice and a lot of first-hand anecdotes and observations from someone who accidentally had a career in the bike business.
Do you have an equally elegant pants folding scheme?
I am ashamed to say I couldn't figure out the steps. I had to play around with my own jacket to figure it out. I am a genius.
@Rantwick: Yeah the trick is that there's not much of a trick. I was just mushing the jacket in different ways and sort of absent mindedly started stuffing it into its own sleeve. When I saw how it worked, I wondered why I had not done it long ago.@Steve A: Depending on the weight of the material, you might be able to do a pantleg stuff similar to the sleeve stuff. For heavier fabric (like most trousers) the shape of most pants lends itself to neater rolling than jackets do.My father showed his whole family how to roll and stop clothing so it could be stuffed into soft luggage and still emerge looking quite presentable. Even dress shirts emerge unwrinkled. He had learned this in the Coast Guard, when uniforms had to emerge from a seabag looking neat and tidy without access to an iron.You can roll trousers by first laying them flat as if preparing to put them on a hanger in the closet. Make a diagonal fold in the bottom end of the pantleg that will be on the inside of the roll, so the hem makes a 45-degree angle. This keeps that inner leg from protruding when you roll the pants down tightly from the waistband. Secure the roll with rubber bands or straps. Not as tricky as sleeve-stuffing, but it does the job.
Nice! Have a pleasant holiday shopping season.
That last comment is basically spam, but it links to a site selling utility cycles, so I'll let it pass.
