How hard is to find a nice case to put my shirts in when I go away on business?

I'm bored of getting to my destination and having to get the iron out/send it to the hotel laundry service!

Everything I've found so far is either now not in production (stuffed shirts), I can't realistically get hold of (Battistoni) or are just 20p piece of plastic fake leather shite from Ikea...(e.g. One luggage)

any ideas? Or is google not lieing to me and there genuinely isn't anything out there!

Ideally looking for something that is going to hold a couple of shirts? Preference on the leather!

Cheers

Eagle creek Pack-it folders (not the cubes).

I like the 18" size, but but a 15" as well, because it allows you to pack an extra change of clothes into a briefcase.

The single best luggage innovation since the Rollaboard.

Have you actually used them? No wrinkles?

Yes, I use them all the time. Very few wrinkles, and even more importantly, the folds don't turn to creases if you fold them right in the first place. It comes with a rigid plastic folding template to help you get it right.

They're so so simple and work so well, I wonder why anyone didn't think of them before.

I've seen the Creek ones but not impressed personally. I would like something that looks a little more in keeping with the rest of my gear i.e. leather wash bag, leather bag/garmet carrier, leather tie case etc... for me the battistoni is what i'm looking for...but I tried in vain to get Battistoni to sell me one direct, they didn't seem to interested to help and told me to talk to Barneys in the U.S., I spoke to them and they didn't seem all to bothered about shipping to the U.K. either...plus they were going on to say that it would have to be ordered and blah blah... Shame...now i'm just trying to find a version similar without the ballache!
It is pretty though!

The Eagle Creeks hold between one and five shirts and keep them in an almost totally wrinkle-free state while in a densely packed suitcase on long haul flights. But, no, they're not leather.

Well, good luck with everything.

I have both the 15 inch eagle creek folder and the 18 inch victorinox folder. I like the larger one a little bit better (if you can fit it), using it seems to avoid a few more wrinkles.

I use the Eagle Creek ones all the time as well. I pack 2-4 dress shirts, undershirts, plus my suit trousers. No real issues. Then again, I am not a stickler if there's a little wrinkle on my arm or something.
