Hello, reposting this from a separate thread as it was pointed out to me this is probably the best place to ask.
I was planning on just getting a tie rack, but was deterred by the $50 shipping that the hanger project would charge, but as stuff on amazon is outrageously expensive, I figure I might just get it from Kirby Allison and get some suit/overcoat hangers since I'm paying the $50 in shipping anyways and it doesn't seem to increase even if I add more stuff. Think it went up like $5 when I quadrupled the size of my order
So.... I wear 44 long (from Ede&Ravenscroft if that makes a difference),and I was planning on getting a few suit hangers and a hanger of my overcoat.
Kirby recommends 17 inch hangers for jackets up to size 44, but when I measure my jackets I get closer to 19.3 inches, and for my overcoat more like 20.1 inches.
Obviously the 44 long overcoat isn't made to be 44 long, but rather to fit a guy who's 44 long, therefore it's made to fit over a 44 long suit, so it makes sense for that measurement to be off, but when kirby recommends 17 inches for a 44 and I get 19.3 inches I'm worried that I'm screwing up the measurement or that there's something weird with either his recommendation or the sizing of my suits.
So I'm wondering, for those who have had his hangers before, how did you find the sizing? Did you buy based on his recommendation for suit sizes? If so how did it end up fitting, was the recommendation accurate?
Does anyone have any tips for me to figure this out? I'd hate to spend money and find out I got the wrong size when the stuff arrives.
