Kirby Allison, whose Hanger Project supplies the hardwood hangers we use at Wingtip, recently put down a few words about the subject on his blog:
“When it comes to luxury hangers, Wood is King. Wooden hangers are everywhere – but not all wooden hangers are created equal. You can find “wooden hangers” being sold all over the internet, at The Container Store, Wal-Mart and in hotels ranging from your cheap interstate motel all the way to the Trump International Golf Links in Scotland (the latter of which we supplied).
So, what’s the difference? Well, in addition to construction, availability of sizes, and other various details, the wood used is tremendously important. Here at The Hanger Project, we take the wood we use for our hangers very seriously. From the beginning, we have always been committed to using only the best woods available.”
