    Don’t fold anything that’s not a base layer. Creases are the devil and will destroy your clothes.

    When hanging pants use clips so you don’t get folds.
    Hang shirts.
    Hang light sweaters.
    Gently roll up thicker sweaters making sure you get no sharp folds that will cause creases and destroy the wool

            If you hang your creased dress pants like that the crease will be ruined and look really awful at the point you folded it by the way.

            >clips heck fabric
            Do you think I’m talking about cloth pins or some shit? Bar clips like pic related for dress pants to keep the crease pristine, Jeans hangers that clip onto the belt loops for most other trousers.

            >never hang knitwear
            You can’t generalize like that. Light and sensitive knits are absolutely better off hanged. Folding means lots of strain on specific points along the crease and frequent ironing. Hanging on a wide hanger places very little strain on lightweight knits.

            >thick knits hardly crease, just fold them
            It’s not about the creases so much as damaging the fibers for that.

            What the heck are you talking about? Damaging the fibers by folding them? Is your knitwear made of paper?

            You aren’t pressing them once folded and you never stack more than a couple on top of each other, you hecking idiot, besides, light knitwear, such as the one you would use under sport coats, should always be folded to avoid stretching them out.

            I fold all of my knitwear and I have pieces from Drumohr, Altea, Gran Sasso and Bryceland’s, all 100% lambswool, shetland or cachemire, never had any issue despite having some of those for the past 6 or 7 years.

            You are unbelievably stupid if you unironically think folding places more strain on knitwear than hanging them. I mean what the heck are you even on about

            I don’t have a lot of folded clothing storage space so I’ve been hanging my knits like picrel for years with zero stretching/creasing issues.

        you sound like an adolescent and complete douchebag when you make comments like this.
        and you probably think The GAP is high-end.
