I am hanging my pants from alligator-clip hangers with the suspenders still attached.

Is this a bad idea?
I have plenty of suspenders, so I have been leaving them attached to the pants when I hang them.
I have 2 questions:
1) Are those common alligator-clip hangers good for my pants? My pants are all cuffed, so the longer blade-type hanger won't work. Is there a better way? While the clip hangers can keep the crease, does the clip itself damage the fabric?
2) Leaving the suspenders attached to my pants adds extra weight to the dangling garment. Will this extra weight distort the fabric in any way? My pants sometimes hang for a long time before wearings so this damage/distortion may accumulate over a long period of time. Should I always remove the suspenders before hanging or not? If I remove the suspenders each time, aren't I putting a lot of stress on the suspender anchor buttons?
Please set me straight.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
