Button the bottom, middle and top buttons of your dress shirt. Lay the shirt face down on a table or bed.
Hold the shirt down by placing your finger about 1 inch from the collar.
Fold one arm back over the shirt so the edge of the sleeve lines up with the edge of the shirt. Fold the second arm back and over the first in the same way.
Lay a tie, unfolded, down the length of your shirt. Position the tie in the center of the shirt where the folded sleeves meet. The end of the tie will hang past the bottom of the shirt.
Fold a T-shirt in half and lay it in the middle of the dress shirt just above the sleeve cuffs. The T-shirt helps prevent a crease from forming after you fold the shirt.
Fold the top half of the dress shirt down over the folded T-shirt.
Lift the end of the hanging tie up and wrap it around the center of the dress shirt.
