    This might be a strange question, but I was wondering if anyone could give me advice on the best way to pack a suit for shipping. I was thinking of putting the suit in a plastic garment bag and rolling it.

    Anyone have a better idea? Suggestions with respect to where I can pick up supplies would be appreciated as well. Thanks.

    Since no one has replied yet, I'll just tell you how I've received suits in the mail. Typically they are folded with the jacket in quarters around the pants and put into a USPS Priority Mail box (the 12-ish by 18-ish or something size). You'll see them at the post office. It's not that big a deal; once you get the suit out of the box and quickly steam it out it looks fine. If you're shipping more than one, I can't help you.
