Every time I travel to Europe, I am reminded why I always try to have a practice of bringing with me at least one of my own luxury suit hangers. At most American hotels, you can count on at least a decent set of hangers. Not phenomenal, but enough to get by on for a few days. They often can be combined to create a suit hanger.

However, in Europe, unless you are staying at four and five-star hotels, it’s anyone’s guess what you will discover in your room. So, I always make it a practice to bring at least one suit hanger. Here, I have two jackets and a pair of trousers on one hanger (inside one of my quality garment bags).

Given what I have just discovered in the closet, I am wishing that I had brought a second hanger with me…
