The notion of a worthwhile investment is something we men often struggle with, and it typically varies quite wildly from guy to guy based on personal preferences. One thing every man probably has spent money on at some point, however, is dress clothing. Not all of us may have skipped to the cash register to do it, but owning a suit is obligatory for anyone over the age of 18 and not lost in the haze of commune life. How often we’re forced to grimace as clothing dollars fly from our wallet, though, really depends on our ability to care for what we already own. That’s where Kirby Allison’s Hanger Project comes into play.
Through collaboration with renowned tailors and men of style, Kirby Allison’s Hanger Project has one goal in mind: to build high quality wooden hangers meant to keep your best garments looking ship-shape when you’re not wearing them. Beautifully crafted from dark, rich wood and featuring details such as three available widths—17.0”, 18.5”, and 20.0” meant to match your jacket size, a 2.5” Shoulder Flare which is 5x wider than your average hanger to prevent the collapsed look, and a felted trouser bar to ensures your pants never crease or slide off, your standby suit couldn’t be in better hands.
Still not convinced hangers with this kind of detail aren’t a smart investment? How often, after wearing a suit, do you have it sent to the dry cleaners and returned looking pristine, only to sit hanging in your closet until the next occasion to wear it arises several months down the road? Then how disappointed are you when the time comes to find your $500+ garment plus $20+ dry cleaning job come out with sagging shoulder lines and sporting an obnoxious thigh-height horizontal crease on the pant?
End the cycle of frustration by treating yourself and your clothes to this small luxury and you won’t regret it. In fact, the company’s so confident that they offer a 100% no-hassle guarantee. If, after buying their wooden hangers, you realized you made a mistake, they’ll refund your cost of shipping and your original purchase price with no questions asked when you return them. They’ll also exchange hangers if their fit should be less than ideal.
Whether it’s retrofitting your entire closet, or just picking up a set of three suit hangers for $75, if you’re interested in looking your best and extracting the longest life out of your garments, you can’t go wrong with these.
Cost: $75 (3x suit hangers), $70 (3x jacket hangers), $65 (10x trouser bars), $55 (10x shirt hangers)
