Hang em high
1 November 2018
These are absolutely brilliant coat hangers - but that is selling them well short down the river without a pair of water wings at high tide and no mistake.
I, like everybody else I tolerate, like to keep a very orderly wardrobe. My raiment is arranged in the classic 'Von Clausewitz Pattern' of 'trousers/tops/jumpers then jackets' line up -obviously working from the left - with all items facing the left, and hangers going over (never under) the rail.
I know nowadays it is more trendy to go for the 'PC' approach, using systems like Chomsky or Harris (I know one person who swears by the Fonda Principles for heavens sake), and that might be all well and good in America but it wouldn't work here.
These are sturdy hangers, and are more than up to the task of hanging whatever I have imposed upon them.
Rugby shirts - no problem. Sweaters (mixed and pure wool) - a doddle. Cords - HA!
I even have a jacket that pulled a coat hook out of the wall, but one of these hangers is more than adequate.
Admittedly it did pull the entire top half of the wardrobe down and bent the hanging rail as if Uri Geller had gone on a bending rampage, but the important thing is that the hanger itself was unscathed.
I have decided that Matt and I are going to take a couple to The Hidden Fortress (the shed in Matt's back garden) and test them to destruction, so I will update of the results in due course.
If I went into an hotel and they had these in the wardrobe I'd nick 'em straight away.
In fact I'd then phone down to reception and complain that there were no hangers, get them to deliver some more and have those away as well.
Admittedly one of the cleaners might get into trouble but that wouldn't worry me.
In fact it would make the newly acquired hangers a guilty pleasure to use - they really are that good, and worth the risk of getting caught sneaking them out of the hotel, and joining the alumni of the likes of Winona Ryder and Megan Fox.
Don't get me wrong I'm not a complete Klepto like Alison, but I do admire quality which these hangers epitomize, so a hearty 'hats off' to the manufacturers.
Ironically enough, they were delivered by a bloke who looked a bit like Sylvester Stallone, who is probably most famous for the high octane rollercoaster action movie 'Cliffhanger'. He didn't speak like him though as I could understand what he said.
