Great shoes, but what do you guys think about wearing these with suits? I think I can wear them with chinos / jeans but was hoping suits would be possible too (given I wear suits most of the week). If not, no worries. Cheers.



I wouldn't; the two-tone combination and chunky last make it a jeans/chinos/cords only boot to me. Maybe a very rough tweed suit.

Praying Mantis?How so? :o

 

 

By the way, I was only comparing AE vs Alden's Medallion toe. I threw in Carmina for honorable mention :]

 

So what do you say then?I don't know if my eyes are deceiving me or not. which one(Alden/AE) is more narrow/looks more narrow and longer based on its proportions and other things?

I see it more as a whooping crane :)

Hi, what do you guys think of the fit?

 

 

Sorry for the bad quality, hope you can still see it

I am having a hard time getting a good fit in the arms. How many folds should an arm have? I have seen about alterations but was told that it would make the arm hole too tight. Any thoughts besides custom shirts, I want to at least work with what I already have.

are there any less expensive alternatives to the Hanger Project suit hangers?  My suits are typically in the $500-700 range and I don't feel like spending more than $10-20 per hanger.  Any ideas?  My main concern is that I need a narrower hanger to accomdate my narrower shoulder jackets.  I don't need high end woods...

Thanks in advance!!

If you don't need anything particularly wide, or guaranteed to be made of wool, why not just hit up Bed Bath and Beyond. Or Target. Both have heavy duty composite/wood suit hangers for a good price.

Well I specifically want them to be narrow (size small on kirby allison size chart - 15.5 inches), and I also want them to have a substantial shoulder flare, to allow a proper drape.  I don't think the basic retailers carry this size hanger.  My question is, is there a Kirby Allison type retailer that has various size hangers, but with cheaper materials, allowing for a more modest price point?

Many good alternatives exist. There are dozens (hundreds, more likely) of sources of quality wooden hangers of various sorts, ranging from Jos. A. Bank during a "Buy 1, Get 2 FREE!!!" sale, to amazon.com, to places like HangersandHangers.com and ClosetHangerFactory.com , and so on . Many of my hangers come from HangerClassics.com .

Ah, I see. I misunderstood what you meant by small.

A 15.5" hanger is a pretty common size for women's clothing.

Here's one for $1.59 - http://www.onlyhangers.com/content/contentct.asp?P=31&PID=394

Can't really tell much about the shoulder flare/contour from the picture. Still, as I say, 15.5" isn't terribly uncommon for women's jackets, so I suspect there's something out there which would meet with your approval. You'll just have to do some Google searches. Just off the top of my head, you could begin searching on "15.5 inch suit hanger contour."

Alternatively, offer a high school kid who's getting decent grades in Wood Shop $50 to crank out a few hangers for you. smile.gif

Pants need hemming and it's hard to tell the fit of the jacket, post a picture featuring you straight on. I'll wager the jacket fits fine as well.
