    Does anyone uses a valet or butler stand?

    Any recommendation for one?

    Yes. I'm from Singapore indeed.

    Please let me know where I could get one. I did saw a few on amazon but I don't know which is good.

    I've got one and they're quite useless.

    It's useless because you should buy a trouser press instead.

    It is useless because it takes up space, isn't entirely practical (do you want a shirt or a jacket on there - because there's only proper space for one without creasing them), and how many people, unless you live in a hotel and are living out of a suitcase, constantly get out their clothes the night before to wear in the morning?

    Yeah I totally understand your point. Perhaps it not for everyone.

    I guess it will suit me since I tend wear my trouser for a few days before washing them. With the stand, I could actually "air" it over night before I wear it again the next day. If you were me, you wouldn't want to keep your "dirty" trouser in your wardrobe with the clean clothes, would you?

    I put my suit on it at the end of the day to give it a chance to air-out before I stuff it back into the closet. I can't be 100% sure this does any good at all.
