I suspect it doesn't make much difference.  Personally, I typically use Bick 4, since it's pretty common with the cowboy types around here.

But for what it's worth, the bookmaker I respect most, Lee Miller, considers Saphir products the best available.

That probably just made things worse, not better, didn't it? :(

I use Saphir for my dress shoes only. Think I’ll just try one of the brands and see how it goes

Ordered some Obenauf's heavy duty lp. Minnesota winters can be brutal and the city uses tons of salt to de-ice the roads.

I did the same up there. The comparison between treated and untreated footwear was crazy.

My winter beater boots are a pair of Field N Forest moc toes from Mills Fleet Farm. They're basically rebranded Thorogoods and MiUSA. I've had them for about 3-4 yrs and haven't treated them at all. They're starting to look pretty crusty so now is as good a time as any to get them polished up.

He was a moderator.  He hasn't been a member here for about six years.

I'm looking to get some good quality hangers that will not leave any shoulder marks on my sweet, sweet IH collection.

Here are the two options I'm considering: https://www.containerstore.com/s/premium-cedar-hangers/d?productId=10000060&q=premium%20cedar%20hanger

https://www.containerstore.com/s/closet/hangers/view-all-hangers/euro-hanger/123d?productId=10004077

Any feedback on which you think may be better? I would prefer the cedar ones as they seem more slimline and for the smell. Anyone have something better they use? While we're at it, do you hang your bottoms, and if so what do you hang them on?
What would Jesus wear?

I bought a job lot of wooden hangers from JL in their clearance. If you can hang on 'till Christmas day they usually do a great deal or 'special buy' they call it.

The 'profile' or second set of hangers you posted do take up quite a bit more room in the wardrobe. Great for suit, maybe of you want to ensure structure and no marks for lighter shirts too...

It looks. Yes. It is chambray fabric. Not denim.

The Euro hanger seems like your best, especially if you're washing and hang drying. I've been buying wood hangers from Ikea because they're inexpensive: https://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/30238543/

I use wooden hangers I collected quite on accident (laziness) from Mulberry dry cleaners in Minneapolis. They are typical wooden hangers suitable for suits, pants, etc, and shirts do absolutely fine on them--no need to overthink it.

Think it, be it.
