And regarding that system-wide UI overhaul, I hear the same thing as Rene Ritchie: "Ive's work is apparently making many people really happy, but will also apparently make rich-texture-loving designers sad."

It's old but it's still good:
As for me, my politics are somewhere in the middle—and then way outside both wings. I believe in the death penalty, especially for pro-lifers, child molesters, those opposed to gay marriage, and for stupid dancing in the end zone. I believe in the abolition of estate taxes and the Pickens Plan. I'd lower the legal drinking age and raise the driving age to 18 nationwide, make Kinky Friedman governor of Texas, and make all schools, public and private, start earlier with one hour of physical exercise.

This video seems to be the most highly recommended method. Turn the coat inside out at each sleeve (without inverting the sleeves themselves), fold it at the midpoint, and then fold it halfway in the other direction.
And yes, this goes in the "Golf" or "PGA" group since I'll need to do this in the next few months when I go to Port St. Lucie.
