    Default recommend a garment rack

    Guys I live in the NYC. I have very little closet space, but excellent storage space in my basement. I want to put up jackets, tuxedos, and some other clothes that I do not wear on a regular basis in the storage space.

    I need something sturdy and strong and maybe even industrial. I made a first pass with this from Bed Bath and Beyond. http://www.bedbathandbeyond.com/prod...277790&RN=303&
    It collapsed with the weight.

    Any recommendations? I dont want to spend massive amounts of money either.

    How much weight are you talking about? There are a number of "commercial" grade ones on amazon. Back in college I lived in an apartment without a closet and built one myself out of 2x4s. It was sturdy and cheap, but not pretty.

    I'd say about 8 to 9 suits, maybe 2 winter wool jackets, 3 leather jackets.

    Also a few of my wives garments as well that are in bags.

    Thats like 50 pounds max? Maybe 60... that sound right? Wish I could make my own. No space to do that.

    Perhaps you can put hooks on the wall and hang the clothes that way?
