LONG ISLAND CITY, Oct. 24, 2017 /BSNewswire/ -- Since 1903, when Albert Parkhouse twisted a simple wire to hang his coat, the clothes hanging industry has largely remained the same. With the release of the 2018 HANG R, blipshift intends to disrupt the apparel storage in vertical applications market. Inspired by the timeless proportions of classic clothes restraints, blipshift has combined an attraction to shiny metal objects with access to a precision machine shop, and have announced, with courage, the first and only solid aluminum apparel hanging device designed and manufactured for the professional closet racer.

Created For The Purist
Holistically designed to be lightish, an unhung weight of 9.5oz promises a uncompromised hanging experience for even the heaviest of garments. The HANG R sets a new standard for metal things with holes in them.
"Most consumers don't realize that the typical hanger is only giving you 5/10s of closet hanging performance", says blipshift co-founder Sebastian Ruta. "The HANG R helps the clothes-hanging consumer achieve maximum potential in a variety of unfolded apparel applications, whether in a closet, open coat rack or even in steamy bathroom shower rod conditions."
The first production of the 2018 HANG R Launch Edition is limited to a handcrafted batch of 20 units for the most discerning of torsos.
The HANG R will be available 10/26 at 12:00 PM Eastern Time and will retail for $99.
