Solid wood hangers are sturdy, attractive, and practical. Although these AmazonBasics Wood Suit Hangers aren't the most high-end wooden hangers you can buy, they are the best option for most people.
You could easily just buy the 30-pack of these hangers and use them for every type of clothing you have. Each hanger has a wooden rod for hanging pants, notches to accommodate strappy tanks and dresses, and a broad enough design to hold blazers, shirts, and most coats. Amazon also sells a 16-pack for those of you who don't own that many clothes or simply have a very small closet.
The hangers measure 17.4 x 0.5 x 9.4 inches, which should work in most closets. They come with the AmazonBasics 1-Year Limited Warranty, so if you dislike them or they have a manufacturing flaw, you can send them back within the return window.
Most buyers on Amazon love these hangers and say they helped organize their closets to perfection. However, a few repeat customers say that the build quality isn't as good as it used to be. Some reviewers say that you should sand the hangers down in certain places to ensure the wood doesn't snag on your clothes. The Wirecutteragrees that they're middle-of-the-road hangers that will work for most people, but recommends a slightly more pricey pick instead.
These are minor quality control issues that aren't deal breakers for most people, though you should be aware of them and keep your expectations in check. After all, you're getting these hangers for less than $1 each, which is unheard of for wood hangers.
Pros: Real wood design, includes a pants bar, low price, bulk buying options, you can hang anything on them, notches in wood for strappy dresses and tank tops
Cons: May need light sanding in some areas, not ideal for pants or skirts
They'll match the aesthetic of your ordinary AmazonBasics' Wood Suit Hangers, but these trouser clamps and skirt hangers will take extra good care of your pants and skirts. The Trouser Clamp has a felt lining and a notch inside to hold your dress pants gently without creasing them in all the wrong places.
The clamp is strong enough to hold your pants so they don't fall, but gentle enough not to leave a weird crease. You can use them for skirts, too, or you can get the Skirt Hanger with its two clips and adjustable metal bar instead. The Skirt Hanger will hold your skirts in place by the waistband.
Buyers on the Container Store's website rate these hangers highly at 5 or 4 stars. Reviewers love the smooth finish, the great quality, and the sturdy grip of these hangers.

Pros: Real wood design, strong clamp holds pants or skirts secure, no more wrinkles, non-slip security, attractive design
If you have heavy wool coats, sturdy leather jackets, puffy down coats, or high-end suits that need stronger broader hangers, you'll love the Superior Natural Wooden Hangers from the Container Store.

If you need these hangers to protect your suits, you may want to opt for the hangers with the ribbed bar that holds your suit pants securely, too. Those who only want to store coats carefully won't need to spring for the bar.

It's an excellent rating, and most buyers agree that these hangers live up to their name with superior structure and stability for heavier coats, jackets, and suits.
In fact, the only one-star review is from someone whose only complaint was that the price tag sticker was difficult to remove from the hanger itself.
Pros: Real wood, sturdy design, angled shoulders for suits and coats, can handle heavy coats
Adult hangers are not ideal for children's clothes, especially if your little ones are really young. Luckily, there are plenty of great hangers out there that are made for kids' clothes.

If you're tired of watching your clothes slide right off of wood, metal, and plastic hangers, you need to check out Joy Mangano's Huggable Hangers. These slim metal hangers are covered with velvet to add grip and prevent any slippage.
Because these hangers are so thin, they won't take up much space in your closet, either, which is a huge win if you're tight on space. Joy Mangano also sells these hangers in several fun colors, too, if you don't want to go with basic black. Plus, you get 10 in a pack for $15, so it's a good deal.
The obvious downside to the thin design is that these hangers aren't as strong as wooden ones. They can bend and break under excessive pressure. However, most reviewers say that these hangers are actually strong enough to hold heavier coats and suits. You may way to mix them into your closet to hold lighter pieces of clothing and use wooden hangers for the heavy stuff like coats and pants.
Proper drawer and closet organization can make the difference between a calm, enjoyable morning routine and a frenzied mess to find the right clothes and accessories before you rush out the door wearing less than your best outfit.
