    I might be blind, but I didn't seen any hangers just for sportscoats.
    Horns - We currently do not have any hangers just for sportcoats; however, we do have a hanger that is great for both sportcoats and suits! [​IMG] One of the foundations of The Hanger Project is to be able to offer uncompromising function in addition to bespoke-quality aesthetics. This is why we offer three different widths for our suit hangers. To properly add a sportcoat hanger to our product lineup, we'd have to add three different sizes just to do it right. As a small business, we just don't have the working capital yet.
    They look nice, but a clamp style trouser bar is much better than a round foldover bar, IMO.
    I understand what you are saying; we occasionally have customers asking for suit hangers with a clamping trouser mechanism. However, you would be surprised with just how great our felted trouser bar is. It absolutely will not crease your trousers (as opposed to the locking bar mechanism). And, the daisy-chain mechanism on our clamping trouser hanger enables them to actually save rod space, which is best used for quality suit and shit hangers. Right now, I think that the best of both worlds is actually having both. I'll let you know if anything changes though. The next big project that we'll be undertaking are hanging bags and linen dust covers (which would just cover the shoulders of a jacket). If you gentlemen would like to have your wishes incorporated into our product development, please suggest them now! It should be a very exciting addition, as we continue to seek create the best garment care indulgences available.

    That is a very good idea! The bags should be made of natural materials only. Cotton and linen are both suitable. It would be great if these bags would come in different sizes so that even long coats can be covered.

    Have a birthday coming up. Maybe I'll ask my sister or girlfriend to spring for some of these.

    Need a couple coat hangers.

    Freaking SF!! When I first came on here I thought these, although obviously well-made and worth it, were too expensive...


    Hangars for your birthday? There is somethign wrong with that.

    I had more than a dozen of these suit hangars shipped to Australia. They are absolutely beautiful. Everyone who handled them on the way through commented on the extraordinary quality.

    I would like to recommend these hangers to customers in Europe. To my knowledge there are no other companies that provide hangers which come close to ones from The Hanger Project.

    The contours of the hangers enable a perfect fit for your expensive coats, jackets and shirts. Also the hangers look so much better than the ones I have seen before.

    In total I ordered 8 suit hangers, 20 shirt hangers and 20 trouser bars. They were sent to Europe by USPS Priority Mail. By choosing this shipping method online tracking is provided.

    I have a lot of experience with internet businesses. Usually it takes quite some time before they answer my emails. This is not the case with The Hanger Project. Their service is really good.

    I will definitely buy some more suit hangers in the future!

    Great question! Sorry for any delay in responding. A customer today asked me just this question. When purchasing luxury wooden hangers from Kirby Allison's Hanger Project, the most accurate method of sizing your hanger is to measure directly across the back. The width of the hanger should never exceed this measurement, as you do not want the hanger ends to protrude into the sleeve. See the below illustration:

    [​IMG]


    Another customer recently asked a question on why it's better for the suit hangers to be smaller than the width of the jacket, while it is okay for shirt hangers to be slightly larger. My response is copied below:

    Let me know if you guys have any questions or comments.

    Cheers,

    Other Update:
    We are working on a luxury garment bag, which should be ready hopefully within the next month or two. We are also looking to add a premium garment brush and a complete line of luxury women's hangers. And don't forget to take a look at our newest item--our MORTIMER Shoe Horn.

    I love my suit hangers from THP! Will definitley be buying more.

    My roommate wears suits with 16.5" shoulders, will the 17" hanger be appropriate for him?
