Which Hanger Project hanger size is right for me?

I measured my size 40 jacket from shoulder to shoulder as seen here and it came out to 16.5 to 17 inches depending on the jacket.

The actual hangers from my suit jackets all measure 16.5" to 17" in width.

But the Hanger Project site says that size 40 = 15.5" (Small) hanger.

So did my suits and sport coats come with the wrong/generic size hangers?
Should I get the Hanger Project small or the medium?

My brother wears a 40L jacket, and a medium fit very nicely.

What set of brushes on the website would you recommend? I was looking at both the large or medium horsehair brush? are there any advantages to the large one?

You can keep one big brush for dusting off all of your shoes before you go out and when you come back. When you are polishing them, keep a different brush for buffing each colour of shoe. I am not sure that bigger or smaller brushes make much of a difference. I just like to keep a big brush for going out and coming in, just to remind me of what the brush is for. The ones for specific colours are smaller. None of this is critical, though.  Just buy some brushes!

I've stocked my closet with a ton of Hanger Project goods in the past couple weeks. Got a couple garment bags and Alfred suit hangers for some Sartoria Formosa suits I purchased from a fellow forum affiliate No Man Walks Alone. I also bought essentially the entire Saphir line of products for my black and #8 shell and my black and dark brown calfskin and leather and suede bags. Also got the shoeshine cedar valet and brushes, and a shoe horn as well as the ebony shoe trees for my pair of black Lobbs.

I've got some more plans involving the Hanger Project in organizing my closet, namely sweater boxes for my sweaters and some shirt and pant hangers, and maybe some organization stuff for my home office desk.

Great products! Thanks for giving me an outlet to spend money and not buy more clothes or shoes!

Just wanted to drop a plug for the Mortimer Shoehorn. I've never had any shoehorn other than those little plastic things, so this is my first nice, real one.

I'm happy to report it's fantastic - nice material and craftsmanship, and something I expect to have the rest of my life. One thing to note for anyone who, like me, never had a "long" shoehorn before - you don't know what you're missing (neither did I): you can horn those shoes on while sitting without have to bend down to your feet. It doesn't sound like a big deal, but when I first did it this morning I thought "Geez, that was easier".

Sometimes, it's the little things!



(ps - for other shoppers: I'm 6'3" and got the 10" horn which I'm thrilled with, but I could see where the 12" would be even a bit better)

There is nothing like a 12" horn.

I have the 12" Mortimer Shoehorn. I love it as well. Makes it easy to get shoes on, and the best shoe horn I've ever bought. Since it's all one piece, no concern about it breaking due to weak spots or plastic or anything like what happened to my last couple cheap shoe horns.

If you want something functional but not an "artisanal" type piece, you can get 30 cm metal shoehorns for under $10 on eBay. I have one and it's highly functional.

I was being ironic...

So I finally got around to purchasing one of your hangers. Gotta say, this is very nice. I look forward to buy more in the future.
