What does it mean to be "an aesthetic"?Nakata Hangers (Made In Japan)
The "Rolls Royce" of garment hangers definitely goes to one specialist workshop in Japan who’s roots extend as early as the Taisho period: Nakata Hangers. All of their hangers are made by hand in a beautiful city within Hyogo prefecture.
As of late, they are also the hangers of choice for The Armoury and WW Chan – those in Hong Kong and New York may pick them up there. However, we have now brought them into the UK to be made readily available. Delivery begins early March 2022. Find out more about the Nakata Hanger brand here.
About the Hangers (what's so special?)
Since each hanger is made by hand, additional attention can be given to selecting materials (such as avoidance of knots, grain matching). The neck and shoulders are contoured by hand, which ensures that there are no unnecessary stresses on the garment around the collar or shoulders. They are also contoured in a way to open up the garment and encourage breathability.
The AUT-03 and AUT-05 both have a shoulder thickness of 570mm. And the felted trouser bars of the hangers feature a market-leading diameter of 1.5cm. These reduce the possibility of any unsightly fold-line.
Interestingly, there is also a trouser hanger – AUT-11 with a ‘Zig’ design, which creates a barrier-less opening on one side. These are designed in such a way for trousers to be easily hung or retrieved from the hanger, even when the hanger is in the closet.
Arterton by Nakata
Nakata also manufactures our Signature Hanger collection. Offered for shirting and suiting/jackets, these hangers are an aesthetic … They are stained, with a water-base formulation (which leaves their wood grain intact) in our signature ‘Dutch Estate Blue’ and ‘Cambridge Red’ colours.

@JFWR Thank you!What does it mean to be "an aesthetic"?
Another great idea @clee1982! I shall jot that down and try to have a comparison video done sometime.so open bag on the side make things slide in easier vs. traditional center zip only bag? you guys probably want to demo a video on that to demonstrate a point
@Colrais Thanks for the compliments about the bag; much appreciated. The feedback has been fantastic from all our channels so far.For Yearn, would you still recommend a half-size up for feet with a more typically asian profile? I can speak to being narrower in the heel, wider in the forefoot, a lower instep. I've not tried CJ/EG. My usual references are Carmina Inca and Rain in the 7.5UK.
I believe Justin Fitzpatrick took his usual size in UK.
The bags look fantastically well-thought through, both for personal use and as gifts.
