    The "clamp on the cuff" hanger will do a much better job of "hanging out" the wrinkles in the pants. Gravity will do the job for you. Getting the pants folded exactly right, and keeping them that way while they hang in the closet, mixed with other clothes, is not easily done.

    Not to play "Can You Top This?" with hangers, but the Chippendale of hangers is used by my tailor in NY, and they are the best I've ever seen, even surpassing those used by Oxxford. Â They're pricey at $35 a pop, but they are furniture-grade in their design, size, weight, and finish. Â They offer one particularly clever design that has a very light film on the trouser rod (And, we all love our trousers rods.) preventing the trousers from bunching up over time while hanging, which often has happened to me with other hangers including those from Oxxford.

    (j @ Mar. 10 2005,11:50) Do they have these in the stores? I think I am going to replace all my clamp hangers with this style - the clamps are messing up my hems/cuffs.

    This is true, but all the ones I have tried have clamped unevenly on the cuffs and pulled them out of shape. Not much good having wrinkle-free pants if the cuffs are all messed up. I'd much rather steam out the crease in the leg before wearing them than have to try to fix cuffs (more difficult, trust me).

    I just checked two local Walgreens, then went to their website. It seems as if our beloved hangers are "no longer active items".

    Curses. I guess I need to scour all the Walgreens near here. I'd noticed that several hadn't restocked in a long time, but had hoped it was just because the hangers were a low-demand item.

    I have a few that I could probably part with if you can't turn them up. I've found they are just a little too wide for my small shoulders. Better for overcoats, but I don't have that many.

    Don't bother looking. They have not carried those hangers for over a year. If anyone knows of any similar quality hangers, please share your source.

    I posted a few weeks back that Target had some thick, cherry-colored hangers on clearance - picked up 10 for under $25...

    IIRC, I have seen some of those at Walmart too, perhaps as recently as 2 weeks ago . . .

    I have a few of the Walgreens , Oxxford hangers, the Golden Fleece, and the Polo ones but for my money the best deal is the one Kirby arranged for us and AAAC.

    They are incredible and the best made and looking of the all of them.
    In terms of quality it goes

    (Good)
    Polo -->
    Walgreens -->
    Oxxford -->
    Golden Fleece -->
    Kirby (Best)

    Now add in Kirby's prices and it is a no brainer.

    I still say the best in hangers are the askandy hangers, from Kirby. If you wear high quality tailored clothing, I think you owe it yourself-- and your fine clothing-- to buy those hangers, and in the correct shoulder width (I wear a size 42reg/ 42s jacket, so I bought 19" hangers-- perfect!)

    Is it? No slam to Kirby's hangers -- they're nicer than my Walgreens, certainly, but they're also $12 more. I was buying my Walgreens at three for $9, and they're all the hanger I really needed.
