    I usually fold them, but would it be ok to hang them?

    I fold, but I don't see why you can't hang.

    I hang, but only because I have more closet space than drawer space. I'm probably the opposite of everyone else on here in that regard.

    As long as you don't use nasty wire hangers - hang!

    Hanging for too long leaves indents in the shoulders and folding leaves creases. I fold them until the day/week I want to wear, then iron and hang.

    I hang dry them outside & then leave them on hangers if there is closet space for them.

    hang em, because i only have a handful of them. Whereas i would need a closet for shirts alone, so i fold them.

    Fold. I fear my polos will get warped on a hanger as they are not as structured as dress shirts.

    i hang them due to lack of drawer space, but i would rather fold them if i had the space.
    in most stores the polos are kept folded.. i cant stand when i get those shoulder marks from a hanger

    Mine are stored folded on their side in a drawer so that I can see each color (no one is atop another). My hanging space is reserved for dress shirts.
