So this may be a totally ridiculous thread to some, but I did a ton of google searches and nothing came up that really matched what I'm after so I figured I'd throw my inquiry out to you all! I recently started going to the gym in the morning before work i still can't even believe I get myself out of bed but I digress .. I work in investment banking and therefore often wear button down shirts and slacks to the office. I've been folding my clothes in a longchamp tote to change into after I shower at the gym (I go to an Equinox so the showers/locker rooms are all very nice and clean). Unfortunately, my shirts are getting terribly wrinkled. I only have one "real" garment bag, i.e., an actual material and not just the plastic they give you, and it houses my REALLY good suit so I don't want to use it for anything else. I'm contemplating just carring my clothes "naked" on their hangers into the gym going forward, but is this a faux pas? I don't think I've seen anyone carrying their clothes open. Again, I'm sorry if anyone thinks this is a completely trivial post but I'm just SO curious what you all do!
I go to Equinox in a morning as well. I usually try to pack most of the stuff that does not wrinkle. My pants, my blouses, my jackets do not wrinle easy, but my husband carries all his shirts on a hanger. Not a big deal at all.
At least, if you use Equinox you do not have to worry about bringing shampoo, towels, blow dryer.
This may not help you if you've already invested in button-downs or prefer high-end brands, but I love love the non-iron shirts from Brooks Brothers and Banana Republic. I can fold them up and put them in my gym bag along with my work shoes and they stay wrinkle-free.
