how to hang dress pants on a hanger illustration diagram

After a long day at the office, you hang your dress pants up (maintaining that razor sharp crease, of course), and turn off the closet light. The next morning when you open the closet door, you find your perfectly hung pants lying in a lump on the floor.

There are speciality hangers out there that’ll prevent this kind of pant-slippage, but they’re not necessary if you use this handy dandy hanging trick. Employed by tailors around the world, the sartorial hack illustrated above will ensure that your nicely ironed dress pants never again slide off the hanger.
