- There's nothing worse than a messy, disorganized closet. Having high-quality clothes hangers that match is an absolute must.
- After much research, we found that the AmazonBasics Wood Suit Hangers are best for most people with their sturdy design, low price, and bulk buying options.
It's perfectly normal to make it to adulthood and find yourself stuck with a closet full of mismatched hangers - half of which are crappy wire ones from the dry cleaner's or flimsy plastic ones you bought at the dollar store - but you don't have to live in disorder any longer! It's time to get a good set of high-quality, matching hangers. Believe us, your closet will thank you.Hangers come in all kinds of shapes, sizes, types, and materials. It can be hard to know which ones are best for your clothes and your closet. One thing is for sure, though - Cheap, thin, flimsy wire and plastic hangers are not the answer. Sturdy, well-made wooden hangers are best, though velvet and padded ones are also very good. We've chosen wooden hangers for our picks because they tend to last longest and look the nicest.
We've also included a few different types of hangers: regular, all-purpose ones that can handle any piece of clothing you have; special ones that are made for hanging pants and skirts without creases; hangers made for children specifically; and a tie rack that can hold ties, scarves, or belts easily.
Editor's note on the merits of high-end hangers: In our research, we found many incredible companies like Kirby Allison's Hanger Project, which make lovely high-end hangers out of fine wood and other materials, however, these hangers are rather expensive, and most people will probably be just fine with more mid-range or budget picks like the ones we recommend.
