http://www.usahanger.com/products/details.asp?ProductID=NH303 These have a 3/4" width clasp. I don't get why these don't have like a 2" clasp or 2.5" to claps the entire cuff, if there's one there, and help press it over time. My pants all have 1.5" cuffs and it looks a little weird with part of it pressed and part of it not. But there is none with a 2.5" or 2" clasp.

Aw man, I was totally trying to find one of these cheap a few years back and never ended up settling on getting one. Guitar stuff is a pretty rare find, only thing I ever found was this 60s Airline Reverb that I've barely used since acquiring it for $15 at a thrift

Gentleman, As someone who has been thrifting for about a year I wonder what the prices are in your area. I only buy things for my own use or that of my sons. I try to buy only items made in first world countries of high quality. For instance today I got lucky and found 3 CANALI shirts at $5 each in my size in excellent condition along with a POLO cotton golf jacket for about $5. Last week I picked up my first CANALI jacket in my size for $6 which I thought was a very good deal. It takes a lot of work to find quality items in excellent condition. I usually pay $10 or less for a sport coat and $20 or less for a suit in brands like HSM or HF. However I can go to 4 thrift stores in a day while I am out and about and often find NOTHING. Again I only buy things to wear and am very picky which is why I have given up on EBAY. Half of the stuff I get from EBAY is loaded with moth holes or old and worn out. I go to GW or the SA or other non profit charity based stores. So far I have not gone to SAVERS which is big out here. Any thoughts or suggestions?

Thanks. I was actually just showing off my Luxire shirts and took the rest down. Then snapped a picture of what was hanging at the moment.

 

That said, I have two white shirts - Hugo Boss and I hate both of them. I refuse to wear them and wear blue and pink all I can instead. I have 8-9 other Luxire shirts on the way. None white.. but some white and more (better) blue in the next haul. I've got burgundy stripes, blue ecru, white with red/blue check, etc. Just, getting fixed.

 

Seeing as how I basically only wear my Luxire shirts, I just realized I have more shirts overseas getting fixed for mis-measurement or freshly ordered than readily wearable in my closet.
