    I'm looking to acquire a dozen or so wooden hangers for my jackets - I'm tired of the mish-mosh in the closet and am looking for some uniformity. Is anyone familiar w/ Aris hangers from Italy? That's what I'm shooting for....

    I have about 6 hangers from Hold Everything. They are a bit pricey -- about $15 per hanger -- but are worth it IMO. I have the rod and bar model. Not quite a good as Oxxford, but better than Kiton hangers IMO. They take up a little bit less room than Oxxford hangers too, which is good.

    Here are the Hold Everything hangers. I like them just a bit better than the Container Store ones because it is a bit thicker in the neck area of the hanger (I buy the model with the jeans hanging from it -- see how thick it is?). Granted, it does take up a bit more space. But they are really great quality.

    I'll throw in my usual recommendation for Walgreen's hangers. They're really quite nice, and the price is right. I like Ikea's wooden hangers for shirts. Really, there's only so much I'm willing to invest in a hanger, although I recognize the need for a quality hanger for suits and sportcoats. And, like most, I like the look of the wooden hangers.

    I'll only spring for good hangers for jackets and coats. I doubt my trousers know the difference between an expensive clip hanger and a cheap one. I'd rather spend the savings on clothing. Walgreens is a good deal, thanks- ordered some [​IMG]. I needed them, still getting sorted in my new place, I have a few boxes of folded clothes that should be steamed and hung.

    For shirts I just have them on the wires that they came from the cleaners on.

    Interestingly, was looking for hangers for suits just yesterday as I am getting concerned about my jackets. The walgreen ones look great but I'm a 46 and having trouble finding good contoured hangers wide enough. Anybody have any luck finding larger ones?

    See my post in this thread above. The Hold Everything thick hangers are fantastic, and they should fit your 46R shoulders almost perfectly.

    I've used Hangers Direct and have been quite please with them. Much less expensive than the others, though there are minimums.

    I bought a bunch of those for my husband last year, and he's been very happy with them. They are rather compact, indeed.

    Target has nice hangers in a dark wood. 4/$5 without pants bars, 3/$5 with. I really don't see the point in paying much more than this.

    Are the shoulders wide like the Walgreen hangers? I'll have to stop by and take a look next time I'm in Target.
