    The problem I have with that design of hanger is with fuller trousers I can't get them to halve on the bar. I appreciate the link, tho.

    The wood hangers I'm talking about are not wide at all - take the same space as cleaners' hangers for pants and just a little more space than wire hangers for shirts. Tey're flat and can be compressed pretty well.

    +1 these are what I use, and they're flat.

    I use them for trou and shirts. I use nice heavy hangers for sportcoats, suits and other jackets.

    My cords, cotton pants and jeans i fold/stack.

    Yup, the bar is shorter because of the design.

    I have a closet full of these, they work fine for me and are somewhat cheap.

    I just switched my pant hangers all over to this solution (the OP's) and don't regret it at all (of course, I was upgrading from the wire/cardboard drycleaner hangers...). I found most of them at Ross for under a buck each as well.
