    Does anyone know where to purchase this type of hanger? Â I want the integrated trouser clamp with the large ends in a blonde wood color. Â thestoragestore.com has it posted but they are actually organizeverything.com which is not stocking the blonde wood anymore. Â if anyone knows, please help me out. Â Thanks.

    Talked to Robert Carlton, they can do the width on the ends but do not offer the integrated clamp. Thanks anyways Grayson.
    Anyone? Anyone?

    Well, I tried. Not that you asked me, but why would you want to use that trouser mechanism anyway? The hangers I own from Robert Carlton have the traditional bar which help the trousers maintain a crease far better, I should think, than that mechanism. Further, the bar, cleverly, has a light film (wont damage the cloth) to prevent the trousers from "magically" traveling and bunching up while hanging in the closet. You might want to give it a second thought.

    I was a hardcore advocate of the trouser bar for quite some time but over the last year I have developed a liking for the integrated clamp. To each their own.

    If you can live with a darker wood color, the exact same product can be had at Bed, Bath & Beyond. I think it is called the Euro-Hanger. (I'm not sure about this, however.) I am currently using this style of hanger for all my suits. Price, if memory serves, is $12.95.

    Bed bath and beyond and organize-everything.com sells it in a mahogny. I was hoping to find them in a light color which is odd since I enjoy dark woods. Sometimes I'm a little anal. Thanks

    $12.95 at BB&B or for $3.33 you can buy a Walgreens hanger and tie a ChipClip™ to it with some twine. j/k

    I bought a lot of 50 Dresswell and Setwell vintage-esque trouser-bar hangers at a flea market last year. They have huge shoulders and very wide ends, and are all blonde hardwood. One of the best $50 I've ever spent; the only problems are that they require a lot of closet space, and don't have any of those little ridges on the bar that keep the trousers from slipping (but, since I have discovered the Savile Row trouser-hanging method, this is no longer a problem). I am constantly keeping my eye out for similar hangers, but have yet to come across any. *sigh*

    Hmm, what is the Savile Row trouser hanging method? Mind sharing it with me/us? [​IMG] WJTW

    I forget where I learned this, but it was most probably here...

    Pass one trouser leg through the hanger and fold it so the cuff is a bit short of the crotch, then pass the other on top of it and through the other side of the hanger. No slippage.

    I have a hanger like the one pictured (given to me by an Uncle, years ago). It was made by Bogerie. Hangerworks.com has a similar hanger, but it's beech with a cherry finish, so it doesn't meet your requirements for a natural finish.
