Teeanime have prepared a list of five alternative methods to fold a shirt to prevent creases either in transit or storage.

How to Fold Men’s T-Shirts

The following are instructions for folding a men’s t-shirt or shirt using the five methods indicated above:

The Basic Fold

We’ll be forthright. This fold is suitable for any type of shirt, although it works best on t-shirts. Particularly our t-shirts (wink, wink). The fold will have a side seam and hem that point up, giving the folded edge the appearance of one long sheet with two short ends down in front.

For this fold:

  1. Lay your t-shirt flat on an open surface large enough to accommodate the entire shirt – the floor or bed are good possibilities.
  2. Fold the sleeves out of the way – this means crease them downwards first before folding (don’t just roll them).
  3. Begin by folding each side towards where it would go if you could fully unfold it, and then fold across from the left side to the right so that both fold points meet in the centre.
  4. One of the four folds should go all the way across to form a triangle, while the other should only go halfway across, leaving two short ends hanging down.

Why Use This Method?

  • Popular folding method and easy to use.
  • Useful for both travel or storage.

Why Might You Not Want to Use This Method?

  • Darnit. Creases may appear where the t-shirt/shirt is folded.

The Double-Shoulder Fold

The Double-Shoulder fold is convenient for both travel and storage. It’s also a preferable alternative if you’re carrying shirts with many colors, since the fold can assist conceal the other shirt and keep it from rubbing against the others during shipping.

  1. Begin by folding the fabric in half lengthwise, forming a L shape; fold down to approximately mid-thigh level, then fold each side again so that they meet at the center point.
  2. There are now four folds descending: two long (top/bottom) and two shorter (left/right).
  3. Bend your knees slightly to keep all layers together as you turn counter-clockwise back towards yourself, creating a more circular fold.
  4. Fold the bottom fold upwards until it sits just below your waist, then fold over again to form a tube-like shape that may be laid down or placed in a bag.

Why Use This Method?

  • Useful for travel and storage.
  • Practical if you are packing t-shirts with different colors.

Why Might You Not Want to Use This Method?

  • Ack. It may take you some time and effort to execute correctly.

The Army Roll

This strategy is widely used and popular because it can save you a lot of space.

Here is how to use it:

  1. Lay the shirt flat, right side up, then fold the bottom up 3-4 inches.
  2. Smooth the shirt’s fabric before folding it into thirds to reduce wrinkles. Make sure to start with the four folds on the left and fold it over the middle.
  3. Fold the shirt’s inside edge up to meet the bottom fold, then fold it in half again.
  4. Finally, fold each sleeve towards you and tuck it under so it doesn’t spill out while rolling up your shirt.
  5. Roll your shirt from the top down until it forms a compact log shape.
  6. Finally, fold the shirt lengthwise in half, then again into thirds.

Packing is simple if you have a travel-sized t-shirt to wrap up your crease-free clothing! If they are not too bulky, you can fold them like regular clothes or arrange them on top of one another.

Why Use This Method?

  • You can fold the shirt up to fit in a suitcase easily.
  • It’s easy if you’re packing for someone else too.
  • You can fold your shirt with the sleeves inside.
  • If you pack for a week or more, it’s easier to fold.

Why Might You Not Want to Use This Method?

  • You can’t fold them if they are too bulky.
  • It’s not the best way to fold a t-shirt with sleeves on the outside.
  • You have to fold it over and then fold it again into thirds. So much folding.

The KonMari Fold

The KonMari fold follows three principles: folding in thirds, allowing one extra inch on top and bottom of each fold to eliminate creases, and ensuring there are no gaps. This fold’s propensity to display patterns may explain how neatly it stacks.

  1. Place the shirt flat on a surface with the front facing up.
  2. Take one side of the shirt and fold it across the center of the shirt.
  3. Fold the sleeve back.
  4. Take the opposite side of the shirt and fold it across the center, stopping just before the edge.
  5. Fold back the other sleeve.
  6. Stopping just before the edge, fold the top of your shirt towards the bottom – and stop a little before the edge.
  7. Fold the shirt’s folded edge over towards the bottom.
  8. By folding your shirt over again, you can make a little rectangle.

Why Use This Method?

  • Helps with time-management.
  • Can help with physical and mental health.
  • It’s a way of exercising gratitude for your belongings.
  • Helps you reconnect more with your items.
  • You’ll impress the wife.

  2. Pinch the top of your shirt with your other hand.
