The Fastest Way to Fold a Shirt

Whenever I see neatly folded shirts in a clothing store, I wonder how they fold the shirts so perfectly.

One time, I noticed an employee using a piece of wood to help them. But, this video demonstrates the fastest and most mind blowing way to perfectly fold a shirt.

If you’re viewing this post on a device that doesn’t support video, pinch the shirt in the two locations shown in the following photo.

Then, carry your left hand over your right hand and pinch the bottom of the shirt inline with the two pinch points you already have. Then, lift up and let the shirt fall into a perfect square. Place the lowest edge on a table and fold over that edge so the front logo is facing up.

    Ok, that has to be the most fascinating way to fold a shirt I’ve ever seen. I will be trying that out as soon as I get home.

    the reason you see people in stores folding with a board is because larger amounts of tees stack more evenly when board-folded. the quick way is great for, well, being quick, but when presentation is an issue, board folding is the way to go.

    This technique was found by the Japanese about 2-3 years back.. The things they can come up with is simply incredible…

    I suck at doing it the right way so I do it slightly more complicated but to the same effect
