Anyone know where I can pick up proper wooden suit hangers?
Thanks.

Ikea used to have them, with the wider flatter ends. Sometimes I've seen them in Japan Home. I haven't been looking for a while, but you should have no problem getting them.

Thanks, but Ikea only seem to have to skimpier type, i.e., more of a shirt hanger.

If you have to have wooden then ordering online via Kirby Allison or similar is probably the only way.
WW Chan give you a very satisfactory black plastic hanger with broad shoulder ends and a plastic strip that pins the trousers to the trouser bar well. I think I saw the same or very similar at a point of sale wholesaler somewhere near Maple Street up between Prince Edward and Sham Suit Po... they might do smaller quantities. Otherwise I might have to export a few hundred to the UK and start an eBay shop, the hangers are that much better

Try Taobao - they have very nice ones similar to those at Kirby's hangers. Unfortunately they are more European / American sizes
