Once upon a time, I worked in retail and after several years, I became very accustomed to the black hangers we hung our items on. I would always bring the hangers home. Recently, I moved and I ended up with a much larger closet. I decided to hang almost every top that was once housed in a dresser out of necessity. I needed hangers and wanted them to look like the black retail ones already in my closet. Hangers are hangers, but I really like these. I also purchased the little rubberized plastic strips that wrap around the edges to "grip" tops. They fit on these perfect. I keep needing more hangers and reordering them though. I've also switched my daughter from kiddie hangers to adult as her necklines were getting too big for small hangers. I bought these again. If you plan on using these in all your closets, do yourself a favor and buy the biggest box you can to save money/ time/ etc. These are great quality and a good value.
