Suit Transportation

Post  mikeyzf600 on Fri Aug 17 2012, 21:11

Hello peeps,

Maybe an odd one but I have a question.

On Tuesday, a mate and I have a shirt and tie event a few hours away. We thought we might go on the 'Cat, weather permitting.

However, although I have the thermals out of my jacket at the moment, I always seem to get warm when riding, not ideal in shirt and tie.

Now, I have some panniers, but I was wondering what would be the best way to get a shirt and tie to our destination using panniers? Obviously creasing would be a problem?

Any ideas welcome

Regards

Mike

Two problems here:
1) transporting the shirt;
2) having a crease free shirt to put on at the other end.

Solution to problem 1 is to fold it correctly so you have the minimum creases on arrival. See this link. You can fold it in half one more time to make it fit in the panniers and put it in it's own plastic bag. Roll your tie up around your hand and put it in the neck of the shirt. It will provide some padding to prevent the collar getting creased.

Solution to problem 2 is more difficult unless you're going to a hotel which can provide an iron and ironing board. Otherwise if there's time to hang the shirt on a hanger for a while, perhaps in a humid bathroom, some of the creases may fall out. If not then folding as above will ensure a crease free collar and minimal creases across the front of the shirt.

Now is anyone having problems getting stains out of their shag-pile?!
