Oh, for those former days of simple quality! This "Union" brand folding traveling hanger, from the Forties, melds function, quality and style—in one clean stroke. Two chromed-steel wire "wings" rise and drop from a nicely carved beechwood body. Early Modernism at its best. Light, durable and practical (not to mention super-cool), this hanger would fit easily in your carry-on or make a statement hanging on the hook of your office door. Initially, I thought this hanger might have begun its life on the railways, but I have not (yet) found any such connection. I wish I had a gross of these!
