You're right. I hung a suit on an ikea hanger with the thick shoulders and tried hanging the pants on the hanger bar (I was moving it from one apt. to another and didn't want the extra bulk of a separate pants hanger). It doesn't have any felt or friction, so needless to say, the damn pants kept sliding off the bar. I ended up clipping it temporarily with a black paper binder clip. I suppose you can just buy the felt-like material and put it on the pant bar. Or Ikea can have the bright idea of doing themselves. Question - does anyone have a preference for hanging their pants inverted in a clamping pants hanger vs. hanging it over a rounded bar of the hanger? I find that the clamp hangers tend to wrinkle the bottom of the pants, and I end up ironing the bottom of the pants anyways, whereas if the pants are hung over a rounded hanger bar, it is totally fine with no need for ironing. I've read that hanging pants inverted is better because it "hangs out" the wrinkles so to speak. But I don't see anything wrong with hanging pants (in half) over a bar that doesn't crease it anyways.
