The Fashion Retailer’s Guide to Clothes Hangers

How long do you spend selecting your seasonal fashion lines? Days? Weeks? Months?

Taking care to source the right products makes sounds business sense, knowing what’s hot and what sells will make or break your business.

But how much time to you take over choosing your clothes hangers?

Fashion can be a fickle industry and the fabulous lines you’ve taken care to select will only become a high-street hit if you display them in a way that gets your customers thinking, talking about and buying your brand.

The interior design and fittings of your store go a very long way in determining its success, so here’s the lowdown on clothes hangers and how getting them right can contribute to a booming business:

clothes hangers

Plastic Hangers

These are your basic all-rounder. Available in a super-budget lightweight option or something far more robust and durable, plastic clothes hangers are ideal for t-shirts, blouses, dresses and trousers in adult or children’s sizes.

They’re available with or without shoulder notches or felted coverings for securing strappy, wide-neck or slippery fabrics.

Expanding and Clip Hangers

These types of durable hanger are perfect for skirts and trousers.

Their flexible clips or expanders mean that they can display a variety of waistband sizes accurately and help clothes keep their shape while minimising creases.

Wishbone Hangers

These hangers are really robust. They can comfortably take the weight of any fashion item and are durable enough to be used time and time again.

Their shape and structure makes them ideal for securely displaying formal attire such as suits, trousers, jackets, shirts, dresses and bulky, heavy items like winter coats and knits.

Each of these hanger types is available in a choice of plastic or wood finish and a practically limitless choice of sizes, colours and strengths.

But, aside from selecting the perfect style for your fashion lines there are a few more points to consider:

Retail Design:

The fixtures, fittings and décor of your store will determine the kind of customers that step inside of it. Clothes hangers can be used to emphasise your retail style and make a statement about the kind of service that you offer.

Budget-friendly fashion retailers can keep things simple with plastic hangers while boutique stores with more expensive lines may find high-quality wooden wishbone hangers suit their image better.

All retailers, however, can benefit from using bespoke hangers.

Plastic or wood varieties can be printed or laser engraved with your logo or business details which not only strengthen your brand identity instore, but if you let customers take them away with a purchase, will advertise your business to them every time they open their wardrobe at home.

Budget:

Thinking about the style and quality of your hangers when selecting your fashion lines will help you to allow a budget for them.

When working out the volume of hangers you need, decide whether you will offer them to your customers or not; individually, hangers can cost as little as a few pence but over the long-term, this cost can add up so factor it into your expenses.

Storage Space:

The majority of your clothes hangers may be out on the shop floor but throughout the business day, vast numbers of them can accumulate behind your tiles or in your stockroom.

Although they’re invaluable to your business, unmanaged hangers can be a chaotic, time-wasting hassle to untangle.

Keep your operations hassle-free with clothes rails dedicated to storing hangers on or better yet, invest in purpose-built ‘hanger stackers’ which keep them all organised without taking up unnecessary floor space.
