There are three basic types of clothes hangers. The first is the wire hanger, which has a simple loop of wire, most often steel
in a flattened triangle shape that continues into a hook at the top.
The second is the wooden hanger, which consists of a flat piece of wood
cut into a boomerang
shape with the edges sanded down to prevent damage to the clothing, and
a hook, usually of metal, protruding from the point. Some wooden
hangers have a rounded bar from tip to tip, forming a flattened
triangle. This bar is designed to hang the trousers belonging to the
jacket. The third kind and most used in today's world are plastic coat
hangers, which mostly mimic the shape of either a wire or wooden hanger.
Plastic coat hangers are also produced in smaller sizes to accommodate
the shapes of children's clothes.
