How do you travel with a suit?
Rolling items up to pack in a suitcase saves space and also prevents wrinkles and disheveling. Lay the suit jacket and pants on a hard surface, smooth them out, and roll each item tightly from one end to the other. Once rolled, place each component of the suit in a suitcase or carry-on bag, space permitting.
Does a suit count as a carry on?
You can carry your suit onto the plane in a garment bag, as long as it fits within the airline’s carry-on policy dimensions. Most airlines, unfortunately, will not have a suit bag and instead will have to be folded and placed in the overhead locker.
Can I mail a suit?
Fold the jacket in half horizontally with the pants inside. Prepare a box that is large enough to hold the suit without crushing it, but small enough that the suit cannot move around freely during shipment. Lay the suit in the box. Cover it with another layer of tissue or dry-cleaning bags, and pack it to ship.
How much is it to ship a suit?
USPS First Class Mail is cheapest overall at around the $5 mark, or even less depending on weight. Using an envelope or small box with USPS is roughly equivalent in price. In this case, either the envelope or the small Flat Rate box would get you postage at around $8.

Should you wear a suit on a plane?
Unfortunately, the best way to travel with a suit is simply to not put it into any piece of luggage. But when most of us travel, we use the overhead compartment on the plane. So, you usually have two options. Either you wear your jacket onto the plane and wear it while seated, or you pack your suit in a bag.
How do you pack multiple suits?
Pack one in your carry-on or checked luggage and put the one you want to wear in a carry on garment bag. That suit should be in a dry-cleaning bag as well. Hang it up immediately upon arrival and if it is badly creased put it in the bathroom with the shower running as hot as you can get it.
