    I have just ordered some proper wood hangers from Aero for my jackets. As described below some creases are considered a nuisance.

    What creases are acceptable or normal with use??
    Photo examples??


    From Aero's website:
    The worst way to store a leather jacket is on a typical suit hanger with the steeply sloped shoulder used pretty much as standard by the hanger industry, any length of use of these virtually guarantee deep creases forming down the front of a leather jacket starting from the join of the neck and the shoulder seam. This is caused as the weight of the leather hanging at an unnatural angle starts to fold inwards, this gets worse if the jacket is zipped up or buttoned up and summer storage will often leave creases which will never come out

    This is freaking me out! What do others here think - is this coat hanger worth it? Admittedly the price is low, but I'd still like to hear what people think about these 'unwanted' creases.

    I use a hanger langlitz sells. Things are pretty ridiculous but they work great. Even hanging a wet jacket until dry no issues

    This comes up a lot. I just throw mine in a couple of large boxes. Never been an issue.

    I throw all my jackets in a pile on top of the bed in my guest room. The upside is that I don’t have to worry about strange creases from hangers. The downside is that the pile is huge and I sometimes forget how many jackets I own or what exactly is at the bottom.

    Yes this subject been around... you ought to get some colorful responses maybe haha. I tape 3 plastic hangers together ... then fold a hand towel lengthwise ... wrap a towel around each arm and tape in place. Builds shoulder area up.

    Having said that... the horsehair half belt has developed the creass that aero describes I think.

    Also remember others using special hangers and the creass developed regardless if I remember correctly.

    But they really don't bother me... just look like a natural drape to me.

    But dang now you have me thinking I should just throw them on floor.

    Crazy thing is I envision my dog going to town on them... or maybe a mouse coming along and happily start chewing... so that freaks me out more than creases!

    I thought my dog might "really love" the smell and pee on any jackets lying on the floor! LOL

    They say that urine was/is an ingredient in some leather tanning processes. :)

    Those come from hanging on shoulder sloping hangers zipped up or unzipped???
    This i have to think about. I’ve never noticed this happening or even beginning to happen.
    I do notice a crease down the sleeves from hanging when crowded.
    Idk??

    Sounds nice but I'm recently divorced and don't have an extra bedroom/bed to toss things! ;) Seems like maybe I need a $45 (after currency exchange, shipping and duties :mad:) hanger.

    In this video you can see how wrinkles formed from the wrong hanger.

    I can't imagine buying special hangers for my jackets, I don't want to be a helicopter parent to them. It's bloody workingman's clobber, not a tux! :D Chuck them on the floor, on a bed, on a chair, stack them in a drawer, hang them over a stool, shove them in a large box, throw them in the trunk of the car, hang them off a tree, throw them on the roof, store them in the bath, bury them in the back garden. They'll be fine.
