4 Easy and Effective Methods on How To Pack Ties For Travel
Packing ties for travel often seems to be a daunting task, especially if you want your ties to arrive at your destination wrinkle-free and ready to wear. What so ever, if you follow the right technique, you can easily pack and carry them without getting creased. In this blog, let's talk about how to pack ties for travel with four simple and effective methods.
Using a Tie Case
Tie cases are designed to keep your ties organized, protected, and wrinkle-free while you're on the go. Tie Cases are available in a variety of types and you can use one that fits your needs.
When packing your ties in a tie case, it's important to first fold them in half lengthwise. Then simply pack the ties if it's a flat tie case. Otherwise, if it's a roll tie case then tightly roll the tie to form a circular shape and place it inside.
The tie case will keep your ties protected during travel and also make it easy to find when you need it. Another advantage of using a tie case is it saves space in your suitcase.
Folding Your Tie In Half
Folding a tie in half is an easy and effective way to prevent creases and wrinkles while packing it in your luggage. Here's the method to do it right:
Lay the tie on a flat clean surface, It could be your bed or your table.
Fold the tie in half lengthwise, bringing one end of the tie over the other. Make sure that the front side of the tie is facing up.
Once the tie is folded in half, place it between two shirts or pieces of cloth and pack them inside the luggage.
Zip up the luggage and you are ready to go!
This is the simple best solution to pack your tie during travel.
Rolling up Your Tie
Rolling up a tie is another easy and effective way of packing. The process is simple and helps to keep the tie compact and prevent creases from forming. Here's how to roll a tie for travel:
Lay the tie flat on a clean surface, with the front of the tie facing up.
Fold the tie in half lengthwise, making sure that the folded edge is aligned with the bottom edge of the tie. (Which we've mentioned in the 'Folding Your Tie In Half' section)
Starting at the folded end, roll the tie tightly towards the other end. Make sure that the roll is tight and compact.
Once the tie is rolled, you can place it in a tie case or a small pouch, or even in a zip lock bag.
Place the pouch or zip lock bag inside your luggage or suitcase and you're done.
This method will keep your ties organized and easy to find while you're on the go.
Packing Up Your Tie in a Suit Bag
The Suit Bag and Hanger Method is also a great way to pack your tie with a suit for travel, as it keeps both items protected and wrinkle-free while also making them easy to access. Here's a step-by-step guide on how to use the suit and hanger method to pack your ties:
Start by placing a hanger on the suit (on the left and right corners)or by hanging the suit on a sturdy hanger.

Put the small end of the tie through the loop to secure it. You can also use a small tie clip.
Pack your suit in a suit bag or garment bag and done.
