Should you hang your jeans or fold them?
Jeans should be folded up, while casual dress pants and slacks benefit from being hung up. You can use hangers with clips, or take your pants, fold them in half, and put them over the bar on the hanger. This is a great way to hang pants if you don't have a lot of vertical space in your closet. 
Denim is are the easiest of pants to fold since they are usually on the thicker side and will hold their shape. Some prefer to hang them. If so, I would say folding them over the hanger is best .Denim is a heavy-duty fabric so it doesn't matter whether jeans are hung or folded or stored in a drawer.
  • When folding your jeans to place inside a suitcase or luggage, consider using the rolling method. This involves rolling your jeans into a cylindrical shape rather than actually folding the legs.
