I am so fed up with cheap hangers that leave clothes misshapen and are liable to snap. I didn't want metal ones but I didn't want to spend a fortune either......These are the perfect compromise. They are quite big so not appropriate for some blouses/shirts as they are quite long, (Hence the 4 stars), but they are a nice shape and are lightweight but sturdy and have hooks for scarves, ties etc and hanging for trousers. The velvet coating means they don't leave those horrid creases that thin metal ones do. Highly recommended.
