Hanger Project Suit Hanger

Hanger Project Suit Hanger

by John Liu

Sartorialists, relax; your hanger problems have been solved. The Hanger Project is a company that specializes in making high quality jacket, shirt, skirt, and pants hangers. The small company was the brainchild of a forum member on the excellent AskAndyAboutClothes.com.

Often, people spend a lot of time on tailoring fine garments but overlook a key aspect to clothes maintenance: the clothes hanger. Other times, people will be conscious of having proper hangers, but cannot find good ones.

All the hangers are great, but especially fantastic are the jacket hangers, which provide the most shoulder support of any hanger I’ve seen, including those at upscale department stores such as Neiman Marcus, Saks or Bergdorf Goodman (although the Bergdorf ones are great too). The shoulder is the one area even the best tailor in the world won’t touch; these hangers will ensure that the shape of your jackets stay as they were made. East Coasters, make sure to get the suit hangers for your fine wool overcoats.

$21.95  at Hanger Project.
