    How do you store your sport coats / blazers?

    I am curious how others hang their sport coats in their closets. Do you use a garment bag, shoulder covers or no cover at all?

    Wide-shoulder hangers, almost all in bags. Developed the habit when my sister the dog trainer lived with me -- the dog fur was inescapable even in a closet -- and as I have about a dozen suits/jackets I've maintained it since it keeps the dust off between wears.

    Uncovered on hangers until recently when a moth chewed a hole in my favorite suit. Now they're all in garment bags.

    Shoot. I voted wrongly. I voted "On a hanger in a Garment Bag" but I only do that when I store the jacket in my storage, inside a wardrobe box. In my closet, they're hang uncovered.

    In our walk in closet all are uncovered on wide hangers. I’ve put cedar around them on the hangers. I don’t think I’d keep up with bags and like seeing them all for putting together an outfit since I wear one now almost every week day.

    Walk in closet, good hangers. The best way to protect against moth holes, unless your crib is full of moths already, is to have quarterly pest service and brush your sport coats after wearing them and before putting them away; and possibly having them dry cleaned once in the off season.

    Wide shoulder hangers. I have some of them in bags, but most are just hanging in the closet unprotected.

    What kind of bags do you use?

    I just recently started storing mine in garment bags that I bought on amazon. I do it mainly to avoid the shoulders getting dusty. We have floor vents in our closet and the wide suit hangers cause the shoulders to be a perfect landing spot for dust.

    Most came with the suit (Harry Rosen, Spier & Mackay, etc.), the rest bought at one of those mall alterations shops. None have fabric labels. I think they're all polyester, but they're all the rougher, vaguely akin to burlap weave so they breathe.
