Step 1:

Lay shirt flat on a table or on the floor.

Step 2:

Make sure the back of the shirt is facing you so the front of the shirt is facing the ground.

Step 3:

Grab the sleeve on your right and fold it towards the middle of the shirt.

Step 4:

If you see the logo on the edge peeking out, then the fold is too far and you need to unfold it and fold it again.

Step 5:

Grab the bottom portion of the shirt and fold it inwards to give an even fold on the right side.

Step 6:

Grab the sleeve on your left and fold it towards the middle of the shirt.

Step 7:

If you see the logo peeking out again, then adjust your fold once again to ensure the logo is not peeking out.

Step 8:

Grab the bottom portion of the shirt and fold it inwards to give an even fold along the entire left side.

Step 9:

Run your hand over the crease on each side to make it look neat and straighten out the sleeves to get rid of wrinkles.

Step 10:

Grab the bottom of the shirt and fold it to the top of the shirt.

Step 11:

Flip the shirt around so the front of the shirt is facing you.

Step 12:

Run your hand along the creases just to make sure it is neat and presentable.

Step 13:

You may need to grab the top crease and put your finger between the fold and press out to make a neater crease, if necessary.

Step 14:

Grab the middle of the shirt with your thumbs on the logo side and your four other fingers on the other side.

Step 15:

Lift the shirt off the table and allow the bottom portion of the shirt to fall underneath your hands and then lay the shirt back on the table with the front collar facing you.

Step 16:

Align the shirt on the top and firm up the creases to make the shirt look neat.
