The MORTIMER Shoe Hornis handcrafted from Ox horn in the United Kingdom by skilled artisans using a method of manufacture that has remained largely unchanged for more than 250 years. Available in both a 10- and 12-inch length, the MORTIMER Shoehorn is generous in dimension and perfect in balance. The result of several evolutions directly overseen by Kirby Allison, this shoe horn was made specifically for those with fine taste in shoes. This is unquestionably the ultimate shoehorn for the discerning gentleman - and a gentleman knows that he can never have too many.
A proper shoe horn is essential to protecting the back of shoes while putting them on. Not only does a shoe horn facilitate slipping on the shoe, but it keeps the heel of your foot from collapsing the back. On most shoes, this is the first area to damage (and the most preventable).
If you travel frequently, consider our Travel Shoehorn, which is pocket-sized and perfect for slipping your shoes back on after clearing airport security. Because of how essential the availability of shoe horns are, we recommend having one at close reach everywhere - your briefcase, luggage, closet, and office.
The Hanger Project Difference
Through collaboration with renowned tailors, dandies, and men of style, Kirby Allison has created the world's first collection of luxury wooden hangers. No longer must the well-dressed live frustrated at closets plagued by cheap wooden or plastic hangers. Garments not longer have to limp through life from one cheap hanger to another.
Stop ruining great clothes with cheap hangers! Kirby Allison literally created the new standard in Luxury Wooden Hangers back in 2007 with the publishing of No More Wire Hangers in the Wall Street Journal where The Hanger Project was declared an "Enthusiastic Best Overall."
What separates Kirby Allison's Hanger Project from other companies is the fact that this small business is still directly run by Kirby Allison himself. Just "click to chat" or call the office to speak to Kirby Allison himself. Ever item selected for this website was hand-picked by Kirby and is a product of his unique passion for classic elegance and fine living.
Several unique design characteristics help protect your investment in your wardrobe:
- Multiple Widths. One size does not fit all when it comes to your clothing, and this is especially true when it comes to your hangers. Garments spend more time on hangers than they do being worn, and a properly fitting hanger is essential to avoid limp garments and dimpled shoulders.
- Opulent Shoulder Support. All hangers from Kirby Allison's Hanger Project, especially the Men's and Women's Suit Hangers, feature opulent shoulder support necessary to eliminate shirt dimples and shoulder collapse. The 2.5" Shoulder Flare featured on our Men's Suit Hanger is 5x larger than average!
- Felted Trouser Bars. Felted trouser bars are utilized to prevent the creasing across the legs typically caused by locking bar hangers. Creased trouser make even the finest slacks look cheap.
- Solid Maple Wood. All Kirby Allison hangers are constructed from premium maple wood responsibly harvested right here in the United States. The wood features a rich, beautiful wood grain that showcases and honors your garments.
