Dress shirts are best kept on a hanger in a closet, but if you're pressed for closet space, here's the next best way to store them.

Step 1: Button shirt
Button the shirt all the way up.

Step 2: Lay face down
On a flat surface, lay the shirt face down with its arms spread.

Step 3: Fold one edge
Fold one edge of the shirt to the middle of the back, folding the sleeve down so its inner edge is stacked directly on top of the side edge.

Step 4: Fold other side
Repeat this on the other side, folding the edge to the middle and overlapping the second sleeve on top of the first.

Step 5: Fold tail
Fold the tail of the shirt up over the shirt cuffs to create a nice even edge along the bottom of the shirt.

Step 6: Fold bottom edge
Fold this bottom edge up to the middle of the back.

The bottom edge should sit just below the point where the top sleeve overlaps the bottom sleeve.

Step 7: Fold top portion
Fold the remaining top portion of the shirt back over the tail portion. The shirt should be more or less square with the collar jutting up slightly over the top edge and the buttons perfectly centered.

Did You Know?
In the state of Indiana, you can make up to $17,000 a year operating a shirt-folding machine, a handy device patented in the U.S. in 1989.
