Transporting a suit coat to work?

Discussion in 'General Motorcycling Discussion' started by frodg, Sep 13, 2011.

  1. To sum up, I have a problem: :nopity:
    My only mode of transport to work is my bike. I ride ATGATT and it is through lots of Sydney traffic ( about an hour each way).

    I have a new short term job and I have to have a suit available.

    I can transport the trousers in my top box but what do I do with the suit coat? 8-[ 8-[

    Suggestions welcome.

  2. Leave jacket at work?

    Gently fold jacket in top box too?

    Get diff job where no suit required (this is my personal fave)

  3. wear it?

    or if you are full ATGATT, take the lining out of your jacket and wear it over your suit jacket.

  5. I used to 'suit to work' but always leftthe jacket and [even today] leave the shoes and trousers at the office, then change and only thing I'd pack is shirt n tie rest is ATGATT.

  7. Get a locker at work & leave the work clothes there (inc. Shoes). I just take fresh socks, work shirt every day.

  8. Now that's a good thought.... As long as the weather holds :)

    I'll consider this thanks

  9. Yeh - I have been crumpled for years so nobody should notice ....... \\:D/
  10. So the issue after a lot of feedback is how do I get the jacket to the office in the first instance.....?????

    Leaving at the office will be the answer..

    As a one off I could go the crumpled look and take it to a dry cleaners to get it smoothed out LOL
  11. Crumpled with helmet hair is what sets us apart from caged work mates :)
  12. Take it to work however, get dry cleaners to pick up & drop off at work. Sorted.
  13. If you put your suit jacket in a bag remember to roll not fold and put it at the top not underneath anything else.
  14. Tie it around your waist. Nothing says professional like a jacket tied around the waste.
  15. I could tie it on using my brand new, first ever work tie...

    I'm thinking of investing in a travel iron too.
    If I am going to wear the thing I might as well sell my plebeian soul and go all out :)
  16. Do like the backpackers do, and roll the coat, don't fold it.
    Then hang it at work for a half hour before putting it on.

    Should be no creases then.

    Then, leave it at work and change once a week.
    If all else fails, steam up the bathroom at work, and hang the jacket for a few minutes.
  17. Lightly roll suit jacket with hanger still in it into a large rucksack with nothing else in it, wont crumple much, have done this several times on pushbike.
  18. cut the sleeves off and wear it as a vest..
  19. My motto has always been to never miss an opportunity to wear one of these hideous things...

  20. Looks smart and professional!
