    This video is awesome! I should make my employees fold t-shirts like this when people are cashing out. It is quite impressive, they make it look easier than it is though. I tried it and it's tricky. I guess practice makes perfect. What do you think?

    for a split second my mind was blown.

    Then again I can't even fold a shirt just out of the dryer correctly, even taking my time. It still comes out uneven.

    That's really weird to watch. Much better than my "crumple and throw in a drawer" technique."

    that is incredibly difficult to do correctly.

    Uh, what? This is extremely simple. I've been doing it since I saw this video years ago.

     I saw this video about a year ago and now fold all my shirts this way. The tricky part is pinching the shirt correctly at the midsection.

     Notice an edit in the video at the crucial moment? Maybe it wasn't quite as effortlesss for them, either.

    i suppose i forgot to say "that is incredibly difficult for me to do correctly."

    I use a folding board, its much simpler for me this way.

    I'm with Arethusa on this one, I gave it a shot after I saw the movie and it took me 3 tries to get the hang of it and make it look good. I might use this technique from now on.

    I think I'll start doing this with my sweaters, which I fold retail style. T-shirts I fold in half three times, pants too, and not the retail method of folding in thirds. Anyone else use halves?

    I like it; once I get it down I'm sure it'll be much faster than standard folding techniques.

    I like the music at the end of the video. A ninja creeps in the shadows, and a shirt is folded.

    Thanks -- it is pretty simple and is now my official folding techninque. There is a better video up there, it says 'explained in english' in the title.
