    Forgive me if this has been covered in prior threads. Do you guys prefer to hang your pants folded over on a hanger or hanging vertically on one of those hangers that pinches the pants at or near the cuff. I don't know what the technical name of the latter hanger is.

    I would think there are disadvantages to both. The folded alternative probably will leave a crease where you don't want one. The pinched alternative might do the same.

    I fold them over a Michael Graves hanger I bought at Target that has non-slip rubber on it.

    Love the Setwell. I've picked up several vintage models over the years.

    From my waist.[​IMG] By the cuffs, when not in use. The weight helps the creases come out.

    at home over a wide wooden dowl....whiel traveling from cuffs...helps shed wrinkles.

    I do not have the room to hang from cuffs at home...closet is double hung shirts on bottom, coats and pants on top.

    One of two pants hangers: right-side up with metal clips or up-side down with the long wooden clip.

    Me too.......can't bring myself to spend money on anything more than that, and I've personally never had any problems with this type.

    I hang mine by the cuff.

    I find that clips work much better than clamps.

    I used clamps, but it's taking too much closet space. As my suits pants didn't get any bad creases from staying folded over the hanger bar, I am now trying the multi bar hanger where you can put 5 folded trousers at once.
