Hanging Suits When Going to the Gym

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

I am wondering what hangup bags, pant hangers if any are you using to hang up your suit when changing at the Gym. I have recently took up Muay Thai and No-Gi Jiu Jitsu a couple of days a week.

 

I have looked into getting a garmet bag but don't want to start having creases in my pants due to them being folded in a bag for a couple of hours until I get home.

I take a hollow plastic suit hanger, with thick shoulders and a trouser bar, and a breathable garment bag to hang my clothes in and carry them home like that. The garment bag even has a metal ring in the bottom that I use to flip the suit over double to make carrying it easier. I haven't had any problems with excessive wrinkling.

How do you figure that your trousers will get creases in them? How do you hang your suits at home?

You are being overly precious about this. I doubt that you will get such creases as you describe and if, when you get home, you merely hang them normally in your wardrobe such creases will fall out overnight - preferably leave it for a few days before you wear that suits again.

When I used to train (both muay thai and with one of the Gracies, although over two entirely different periods in time) I changed and put my work clothes back in my car if that helps at all.

I hang them upside down with the clips on the inside of the bottom of the pants. I use the wide shoulder hangers for my jackets. Shirts aren't to worry about.

 

Am I going over board and treating my suits like I treated my Marine Corps uniforms?

There's nothing wrong with hanging your trousers like that, but if you carefully fold them over a trouser hanger, they should stay fairly crease-free.

When I fist switched over from SW&D to CM, I also treated some of my tailored clothing like it was made of cobwebs -- so I understand where you're coming from. Eventually, I realized that nothing untoward happens as long as you're cognizant.

Ok Great. Thanks for your help.

Yup will do. I am new to suits everyday and only have a few. Will be incorporating more and expanding my wardrobe.

 

Right now I have two suits ><

 

Medium Charcoal Pinstripe

Navy Pinstripe

 

I just don't know what to get next. I need to get solids I know but don't know where to go for color. Maybe brown, another charcoal but solid, sharkskin, etc...

 

Edited to add: I only wear suits 4 days a week, Fridays are dress slacks and dress shirt no tie but coat is prefered. I am in need of a sports coat or blazer really bad. i have been wearing a nice wool jacket but it is about to heat up.
