Buy one, get two free. Just purchased 36 pant hangers at $2.80 each. Seems pretty reasonable. Also shoe trees at $8.33 each. Ends today.

They're constantly having sales like these.

I don't recommend their shoe trees. They're dirt cheap, and it shows. The part that goes in the toe is fixed size, so it's either going to be stretching your shoes or won't be wide enough to support them.

Stay away from woodlore or Allen Edmonds trees then, because they are all the same...

In my experience, some JAB trees are split toe, some are not.

No, but I decided to move my pants from being folder over the bar on a regular hanger to being suspended from the clamp on a pant hanger. Do you guys favor pant hangers? Should I not use the pant hanger on cords? They seemed inexpensive enough to make the change.

Er, no? I know AE sells both combination and full toe versions that match their lasts. The full toe versions are OK if you're buying one that matches your last / size, but you're not going to get that from JAB.

I like hangers simply because I always screwed up the crease trying to get them over the bar.

Cords I always just fold and put on a shelf. I only hang my dress stuff. I don't know if there's any logic to that but it works for me.
