I found it! The Ultimate Suit Hanger!

Twenty-two quid for a hanger? Are you out of your mind?

Why not contact Russel hangers or one of the Italian hanger makers directly? I'm sure you could source something similar for a lot less. Bear in mind that shipping to the US would be pretty costly given how much bulk and weight good hangers can have.

I'll carve, sand and stain hangers if it'll net me $40 a pop.

I'd be interested to see what those hangers look like. The hanger with the widest shoulders that I have is a D&G one. It's a good 10cm wide at the shoulders. The next best one that I have is a pretty wooden Armani one that they gave me from the store. The D&G one is awesome though. The only problem is that if I used those for everything I'd have no room in my closet because each jacket would take twice as much space as it currently does.

What's so great about Huntsman's hangers? I have two, and they're no wider or better shaped than the plastic model used by Kiton and Luciano Barbera, or the more common Italian design used by Helmut Lang, Brioni, Jil Sander, and others.

if it will save the back of my suit collar/ neck area, i think it would be worth it. the hangers on container store are $15 or so; I'm considering it if i can get a look at one as a test-case. the hangers i've been buying LOOK nice, but I don't feel they are in the best interest of making my suits and sportcoats last 15 years!

I bought custom 6 solid cherrywood hangers with amazing shaped shoulders and pinless construction from a local store owner (who is revamping the store) for $4.50 apiece (he had 1000 custom made when he first bought them). They are as good or better than the $30 Oxxford hangers - very natural shoulder construction with an incredible finish. They weigh about 2 pounds each. Since I only have three suits in rotation (including a dinner suit, and in rotation meaning that I wear them for weddings and/or interviews) the other three hangers are used for casual jackets and occasionally, a hoodie

It's nor for a hanger, it's for a hangar!!!!
Do you think that price includes an aeroplane, or is it just an empty hangar???

I buy the ones that Kiton uses for $4.50. They fit my jacket shoulders perfectly, and they save trees.

Since when do conservatives care about saving trees?

I would hazard a guess that that it may cost more overall in terms of trees and the environment to make plastic hangars than wooden ones.

As another Evil Conservative (TM) - though of the UK variety - we care very deeply about saving trees. How else could we ensure our golf courses stay pretty and the view from our country retreats remain idyllic?

On topic, £22 for a hanger is nigh-on extortionate...

I refer to your recent email concerning hangars. I can confirm that we charge £22.00 per hangar, plus a delivery charge."

With all due respects to you, Mr. Foxx, my wife no longer thinks I am crazy after seeing what you intend to pay for the Huntsman hangers.



I like the walnut finish and the brass fitting on the example above. When I ordered mine, I requested that the manufacturer silk-screen the hangers with my initials and a logo. I provided the artwork.

This is my hanger source:
http://www.hangersdirect.com/prodtest/HD100201.shtml
24 hangers for $209.00 with non-slip trouser bar or $199.00 without trouser bar.
Free shipping at $300.00 Quantity discounts, No sales tax (except Florida)

Alternately you can find the same hanger at:
http://www.hangers.com/psearch/search.cgi?fam=426
24 hangers for $199.00 with non-slip trouser bar or $198.00 without trouser bar.
Plus shipping.

My Oxxford black lacquer hangers (the plump newer style) are stamped Beverly Hangers on the underside.
In my opinion, Huntsman, Russel, Toscanini, and Beverly are not a price or quality value when compared to my first choice above.

Alan C's several times mentioned hangers from Walgreen's are possibly the best price for a decent hanger at three for ten dollars (plus shipping).

It's an inside joke between Matt and I. We actually share more about politics than we let on.

We're planning a bloodless coup in San Francisco.

Holdfast is right, it is all about the golf courses.
