Am I the only one who thinks a phone jack schematic symbol would be more appropriate?

How An Engineer Folds A T-Shirt

Cardboard? Cardboard?!

A true engineer would use materials appropriate for the task at hand. I’m thinking something rigid for durability but not slippery and no loose fibers to transfer to the t-shirt.

This needs to be modified for dress shirts. Dress shirts are longer so it would need two flaps that fold up to fold the shirt in thirds in both directions.
