Using suit hangers for hanging shirts - overkill?

I can't imagine why this would be necessary.

I do it for all my shirts that have hand-set/hand-sewn sleeves.

I've been doing this with some of mine, using pretty cheap wooden suit hangers, not for the shoulders, but for the collar.

Overkill, with hand-set sleeves or otherwise.

You guys are obviously small timers. I have bespoke mannequins for my shirts.

I suggest using a store mannequin to hang each shirt.

I hear Manton uses taxodermied Italians for his shirts.

These. Then your shirts will hold their shape PERFECTLY!

Seriously though, just use the cheap wood hangers from IKEA. They're like 8 for $3. Works just fine:

These are all terrible suggestions. You need men in your exact size to wear each of your shirts. From my experience, a daily diet of water and rye will ensure that they won't emit any body oder. If you feed them anything else, your shirts will be ruined. Make sure they don't lean on anything either, as that will crush the cotton fibers. If you're interested, PM me. I have a guy that supplies me all of my people.

I like wood hangers, but use a shirt hanger.

Plastic hangers just make your closet look terrible, if you want the collar to stay nice just make sure to leave enough room between each hanger on the rack that your collar doesnt get squashed.
