I've been commuting for a while now, but the job that i have doesn't require any professional clothing or anything, very casual, like jeans and tennis shoes. however, hopefully sooner than later i should be getting a more professional job, where i'll no doubt need to have nice slacks and at least a polo shirt. Are there any good options for keeping clothing wrinkle-free while in a backpack? any devices or techniques?

Yup - the Eagle Creek PackIt thingy (Click Here)

I just pop mine in my panniers - works killer! It actually kinda presses the clothes

Commuting

i commuted 100 days this year, about 14 miles round trip. I live in Tulsa so many days above 100 and some below freezing. I were slacks and a polo shirt most days. I just fold mine up, neatly, and they don't look bad by the time i get to work. When i get to work, i sit for a few minuets to stop sweating, then dry off with a towle, then whipe my self with non-smelling baby whips. I shower befor i leave the house and already have gel in my hair, so i just use a little water and fix the helmet hair.

ala buritto stylie..It works better then folding. Bu the best bet is to leave stuff at work.

I drive to the office once a week with all the clothes I need for the week. Then just ride in the other days, workout and shower at the gym, walk to the office and get into the professional clothes there.

Man, I hope part of your job doesn't entail proof-reading. About how long is a "minuet"? Do they mind you listening to music before you start work?

And I'd really prefer not to think about baby whips. Aren't those illegal?

I leave em hanging until I'm ready to leave and just roll them up and into the panniers they go. I also have black and brown dress shoes that live at the office.

spelling

Sorry Finch Platte, i'm an engineer, we have a terible problem with spelling and grammer. I design emergency shut down valve automation systems. My talents are in other areas. I would challenge you to a math, hydraulics, strenghts of materials, or any other engineering related contest but not spelling or grammer. You know, this reply thing should have a spell checker.
