Keeping your jacket smart in a backpack

I know the entire www was in a fever of anticipation after yesterday's entry about smart clothes. So, the trick with a jacket is to put it in plastic - the kind you get at dry cleaners - then fold neatly and flat much like a shirt. Try to keep it flat as it goes into the backpack. I think I looked almost smart today and not crumpled. And if you knew me you'd be surprised by that.

I used to work with a guy who'd been in the army - and he said they roll their uniforms tightly, rather than folding, to keep them smart in backpacks. I've followed his instructions for jeans and shirts, but never a jacket.

Yes - I seem to vaguely remember that from my days when I was in the school cadets ... perhaps it's worth a go. The dry-cleaning plastic seemed to be pretty good for keeping it in shape.
