Has anyone ever tried these alternatives? http://www.hangersdirect.com/product...HD100200.shtml http://www.woodhangers.us/products/100201.shtml
I hit the motherlode last year when a Juilliard faculty member, who learned about my clothing fetish, gave me all of his Anderson and Sheppard hangers (four of which are from the 50's, I think.) I don't have a Savile Row suit, but the hangers are sure nice.
My grandfather owned a mens clothing shop in a small town in Ohio and unfortunately sold up while I was still very young. What I wouldn't give to have been there when he was closing down. I could have had a lifetime supply of hangers, at the very least.
my dad wore oxxford suits. i have countless oxxford hangers -- nice but not the best hangers i own.
it never occurred to me that people would be selling them on ebay.
Give these a try (really.): http://www.walgreens.com/store....Count=0 If there's a Walgreens close you can go take a look. Someone here on the forum first recommended them, but I don't recall who.
I made an impluse purchase and bought the hanger direct ones, in the natural and also the darker color. Not sure if they are nicer than the Walgreens ones, but they are pretty nice.
Mee too.... But jeezz... those prices
I think the first recommendation came from AAAC? Anyhow, I just got a few of these in the mail, as a test run. Not particularly heavy, but plenty thick and supportive. Nice looking. Definitely can't beat the value, I'll probably pick up a few more. Tom
One of the perks of selling stuff on Ebay -- I have a closet full of Oxxford hangers and sweet Kiton style hangers from Louis Boston in my closet. Between the two, the Oxxford are superior.
