Coat racks are a silently growing threat on this planet to all that is right and just with our finest linens and cashmeres. They’re like a virus, latching themselves to your back after leaving a stretch mark on your favorite sweater, growing, writhing, twisting, tearing. But no more! A few easy ways to prevent coat rack back (CRB) are to:
- Use multiple hooks when hanging up your sweater
- Try hanging them with the shoulders of your over garment rather than directly in the center.
- Or if your beloved apparel is made of wrinkle-free material like synthetics or a blended material just rest the entire sweater over the hook instead.
But then again, the loyal Quasimodo look never gets old.
