    Yah, but if the wooden ones you are referring to are anything like the ones from Ikea, I think relative to the wires ones, in the aggregate, they do take up a lot of space since the hangers have a slight curve to them, and you can't pack the clothes tighter together on the rod, albeit, that is not something you want to be doing in the first place, but I guess if you have limited space, not much choice..
    Alright, let me repeat: they are not curved, they're flat. They take the same space as the cleaner's wire hangers with the tube thingy for pants. They take a little more space than wire hangers for shirts (w/o the the tube thingy).
    I get all my dress shirts laundered, so they stay on the wire hangers they come on. No way I'm wasting my time transferring shirts to wooden hangers. Besides, they look better that I don't disturb them until I'm going to wear them.
    Your choice. I used to be like you but now, I like transferring them to the thin wooden hangers. Browsing through the closet for shirts and pants in the morning is just more pleasant. YMMV. I'm not the one who started this thread asking for hanger recommendations btw...
    Thanks TR. I hink the hangers gdl has are far superior to anything I can adffor,d.
    They cost less than $1

    I have some similar to this that work well but they have a clasp to hold them in place. Tjose I would be careful handeling so the trousers don't slip and fall off to the side.

    I hate pant clamps. Of course I don't really have the room for them either.

    The 30-packs there - either light or dark wood. As you can see, they're pretty flat

    The problem I have with that design of hanger is with fuller trousers I can't get them to halve on the bar. I appreciate the link, tho.

    The wood hangers I'm talking about are not wide at all - take the same space as cleaners' hangers for pants and just a little more space than wire hangers for shirts. Tey're flat and can be compressed pretty well.

    +1 these are what I use, and they're flat.

    I use them for trou and shirts. I use nice heavy hangers for sportcoats, suits and other jackets.

    My cords, cotton pants and jeans i fold/stack.

    Yup, the bar is shorter because of the design.

    I have a closet full of these, they work fine for me and are somewhat cheap.
