How does /fa/ organize their clothing? Some of you very expensive shit, do you just stuff it into drawers or do you have legit closet space?
Don't hang anything that'll stretch over time due to gravity (t-shirts, knits, maybe sweats). Hang everything else.
everything is hanging, even the silk and deconstructed cotton though I put it on wooden hangers right at the seams cuz I know that its possible it will put a hole through it if its hung incorrectly.
allright, should I get some particular hangers? I have ikea ones right now, and it's panful to see my dries shirt on those cheap pieces of crap
Hell, they aren't even the effay wood ones
I actually do that because I cycle through my pieces alot and am just too lazy to put them back into the wardrobe...
Wooden hangers are kind of overrated and something everyone bandwagonned on after visiting a hotel once. You need something smooth that won't snag. Try narrow velvet flocked hangers for lighter things and actual high quality wood hangers (NO SPLINTERS) for heavier things (e.g. jackets)
I don't get people who have these clothes rails as wardrobes.
1. Don't your clothes get dusty?
2. You can only fit about 5 things on them, do you really have that little clothes?
3. The 'no-hang, no-stretch' is bullshit, you can hang everything, just use a wider hanger for heavier things. Hangers are there to replicate your shoulders. If things shouldn't be hung then why do shops use them?
Hanging outerwear this way is convinient, because it's something you'll grab on your way out of your place.
Also not everyone has enough space to hang other things in a cupboard or don't have a dedicated spot to store clothes. And I guess it looks stylish too. Yeah they might get dirty but not that much really.
I don't know if I'd trust these with any of my clothes and I don't even own really expensive shit.
I need a really good hanger for a bomber jacket that I have, too bad the Hanger Project ones are too large even in the smallest size.
that's not the issue, the issue is : do I have enough room for everything in my wardrobe
or : is it convenient to have so and so in my wardrobe or should I put these items on a rack instead. It also means you don't have to fold everything, which in some cases is nice.
I just have loads of these wooden hangers from Ikea. They're pretty decent and haven't ruined any of my clothes yet.
What cons from hanging a sweater that's spent it's life on a hanger anyway? Also why would I cut the tags out?
I cut the tags out of my boxers because they itch, but that's about it.
Well it hasn't spent it's life on a hanger has it you spastic , it's been folded up in a warehouse somewhere waiting for you to buy it on sale.
The cons are it stretching , attracting moths and splinters whereas folding it and putting it away instead of showing it off to your mum when she cleans your room decreases the likelihood of all of that happening.
And i'm talking about the tag you obviously have left tied to the label for no reason as at all.
Gravity is a bitch yo
He meant the ACTUAL tag, that's hanging from the string off the label.
How legit is this? None of my hung sweaters have stretched an inch. I have a slightly more delicate knit that I've folded anyway just in case.
The only thing I own that's stretched at all is my Alexander Wang rayon, and tbh it actually looks pretty cool with a bigger neck.
How do you store your sweaters? And what's the correct way to fold a sweater? I read somewhere before that you should hang them through those formal trouser hangers.
hanging t-shirts is just wasting space really...
shirts are g2g
sweaters and anything heavy, like knitwear, can get droopy + hanger creases if stored like that. They should be folded and tucked away in a closed drawer with a cedar block for proper storage.
Stop being so autistic and hang your clothes on normal hangers. Anything made out if cotton or denim isn't to stretch.
The only thing you shouldn't hang is really heavy or fine knitwear. Hangers replicate your shoulders, does gravity ruin your top when you're wearing it?
americans invented this shit called closets. basically they took an area the size your bedroom and attached it to their bedroom. its called a walk in closet
Itt: we post our wardrobes/cupbosrds
wool knits are the main thing that shouldn't be hung
wool is heavier than most other fabrics and will thus stretch more
My closet is actually the best looking part of my room, architecturally. It's awesome and shitty at the same time. I hang my button downs, coats, and sweatshirts. Sweaters are folded on the shelf. Pants, tees, socks, etc. are rolled in a dresser. I have a few hooks for things that aren't dirty that I'll wear again soon.
Fine knitwear is really thin delicate knitwear like silk/cashmere/wool blends. Also clothing with a large open weave is more prone to stretch and go out of shape.
I hang my tshirts, shirts, cotton sweatshirts, outerwear and fold my jeans over hangers as well. All of my knitwear I fold and store on a shelf, as well as any open weave stuff.
Honestly people taking about how the force of gravity is going to ruin a 100%, not very heavy sweatshirt are chatting shit. You should only be worried about knitwear because the gauge of the fabric isn't as tight together and other garments.
As a rule of thumb look at the care label, if it says 'reshape after washing, or reshape when damp' (like most knitwear) then it shouldn't be hung.
ikea rack (same as in OP) and hangers for anything nice. tshirts, sweats, underwear etc in drawer under bed.
it's a cheap short-term solution. I'll invest in something nicer when i have my own place but right now I move around too often to bother.
I was thinking about this thing + wall shelves and a curtain in front of the whole thing when I move into a new place, so I don't have to buy something like >>8406555
Over here in Europe, walk-in closets are not quite a thing yet
