Riding with dress shirt on?

Just curious what you guys do when you ride with a dress shirt on? I ride into work everyday with one on under my leather jacket and by the time I get to work it is wrinkled as hell. What do you guys do, if anything, to minimize the wrinkling?

Re: Riding with dress shirt on?

Well for me, when I went to one of my girlfriend's birthday, I fold them neat in my bag not just by themselves in a plastic bag and change into them as soon as I hit the washroom still wear my leathers but feel weird riding with a dress pants on

I fold mine and put it in a small plastic bag. Creases are still there but minimal compared to just stuffing it in your bag.

I used to leave shirts at work as well.. Depends on the company policy too, some shirts wrinkle more than others...

Re: Riding with dress shirt on?

Don't buy 100 percent cotton, like the ones from express. I'll Iron them and they will get wrinkled just from the seat belt in my car , nevermind on the bike. Try and go with a 50/50 mix it might be less comftorable but doesn't wrinkle nearly as easy. from what i've noticed anyways
