Is this something anyone here uses? I'd assume so.

Do you look for anything in particular or just buy a simple rack from any store?

I like to separate my ties and belts. I use towel rods attached to the closet wall to hang my ties side-by-side, so that the fabrics can best be seen at a quick glance. The look is nice, and the decorative finials at the end of the rods elevates the presentation. It is a more elegant way to display ties IMO.

I also don't like standard belt racks (whether stationary or rotating), as they force you to place belts on top on one another. Invariably, the one you want is toward the back of the stack and requires you to take off the other belts to get to it. The buckles become entangled, and the process is less than efficient and dignified.

I put my belts on hanging circles (like a woman's accessory hanger) that allows me to spin until I get my belt of choice. I just like it better than standard men's belt racks; I think the designers of men's items somehow assume that men only have a couple of belts to store.

I have a tie/belt hanger that came from Brookstone (I think) some years ago. It has staggered pegs on each side, and a loops on the front and back for belts. It's not a perfect solution, but it gets the job done well enough.

"the process is less than efficient and dignified"

Right on, but COME ON. Dignity? In the closet?
