So, how do a real man should fold his shirts?

Well, the title should be able to explain itself what this is about. Just to be different, I don't want to talk about difficult material this time, just simple plain and stupid ways on how to fold shirts in the same manner as a professional laundry. Also on how I store my shirts to keep it in great condition.

I learned and practiced this during my 4 years in military school, Royal Military Colleges. I still practice it ever since anyway.

Here's what you need;
1. A decorated rectangular cardboard (10 inches x 8 inches in dimension).
2. Clean t-shirt.
3. A storage box.

Say Bismillah and lets begin,

1. Ok. This is my 8"x10" board. I called it "lapan kali sepuluh". I decorate it with Four Season advertisement on Fortune Magazine.

2. This is on the other side of my 'lapan kali sepuluh' board. An ad of Cartier watch. Yes, I cut it from Fortune magazine too.

3. First step, lay the shirt face-down on the folding surface. You should be looking at the back of your shirt. Smooth out any puckers or wrinkles, and put your 8"x10" board nicely as in the picture.

4. Then fold left side of the shirt (you can start with right side if you like). Fold toward the center of the shirt.

5. Fold the right side with the same manner.

6. Take out your 8"x10" board now. Slow and nicely.

7. Now, put your 8"x10" board on top of the shirt. As in the picture.

8. The length of my shirt about more than two and half. So, I rolled my board once toward the tail of the shirt. If your shirt's length more than that, you might need to do it more that once.

9. There you can see my other side of the board now. Meaning that I rolled it once.

10. An overview of what we have done so far.

11. Now fold up the tail of the shirt toward the center of the board. The result will look like what the picture showed. Remember NOT TO MOVE THE BOARD yet.

12. Take out the board now and place it on top of the folded tail.

13. Along with the board, fold up the bottom half of the partially folded shirt. The tail should be just behind the collar of the shirt now.

14. Almost done!

15. Turn the entire shirt over. Now you should have a neatly folded shirt as you typically see at a professional laundry or clothing store!

16. Don't forget to take out the board as you might need it to fold the next shirt. XD

17. Done!

18. After doing some work :P, this is what my shirts look like. Yours should be like this too!

19. Now we need to store it.

20. Take out our storage board. I can't remember the dimension but it should be enough to put two stacks of shirts. I bought it from Giant anyway. The price should be less than RM30.

21. As you can see, I mounted a cheap 'Ambi Pur' air freshner there at one corner inside the box. Double tape should do the job.

22. Put all of the shirts just like the picture.

23. Don't forget our 8"x10" board! Put it in the middle between the two stacks of shirts so that easier to take out when you need it later.
