Modern Free Standing Charging Valet Stands
Modern times have produced certain innovations in the realm of the gentleman's suit valet and one of the biggest is the proliferation of digital devices. According to one study we own and use around seven portable digital devices per person which can mean a lot of ugly wires and cables dangling all over the place when it comes to charging them all. Today's busy gent needs access to their smartphone, iPod, GPS, pager, and maybe something like a Nintendo DS to pass time on the commute and a free standing clothes valet charging station is the ideal bedroom companion for you. These have all the features of a regular free standing suit rack but with sliding panels and convenient ways to hide all those charging cables from view and a valet tray to hold the devices as they charge.
This attractive men's suit valet stand is also a charging station for multiple digital devices. The flat top panel conceals a power strip into which you can plug a variety of digital devices and the tray has numerous cubby holes to keep everything safe and secure whilst they charge.
Wooden Suit Holders and Stands
There are two main styles of free standing suit rack and clothes organizer, either metal or wooden. Metal suit stands are typically chrome and are more suited to more modern bedroom décor. They are usually just a suit stand, with space for the jacket, pants, tie and shoes with no valet or drawer attachment for things like cufflinks or for charging small digital devices. Wood clothing stands, on the other hand, offer all the suit hanging facility you would expect and often also have things like a built in drawer or accessory tray. It is typically easier to match the wood style with your current bedroom furniture as you'll find everything from oak, ash, mahogany, walnut etc. to painted wood valets for childrens bedrooms. Remember, you clothing valet rack is going to be 'naked' when you are wearing the clothes so it has to look as good in the buff as it does when adorned with your best suit. Wood stands just tend to look better than metal this way. The following attractive wooden suit hanging stands look great at all times.

A trouser press wall mounted leaves more space in your room but lose the clothes hanging functionality and hence many tend to prefer to leave it floor standing instead.

Vintage Valet Stands and Antique Suit Hangers
Before the moern wardrobe got quite so well decked out with closet organizers and multiple ways to save space and better hang clothing, suit valets were much more popular and always part of the upper class bedroom. Classical suit valet stands were attractive but functional mens clothing racks and represented something of a mark of status for the upper classes. These days, floor standing suit organizers are a much more accessible piece of mens bedroom furniture but are still as useful as they once were. As these were typically made for the more well off gent, antique suit valet stands are very well made pieces of furniture and can be bought second hand through all the usual sources. A classical suit valet stand holder can be picked up at antique stores or if you want to shop online for a vintage clothing stand for men's suits and formal attire then there are plenty of options at online auction sites like eBay. Some vintage valet stands and antique clothing rack holders for sale right now can be seen below.

If you have been struggling for a gift for an executive gent gent then look no further as a suit valet makes a great present suggestion for him for Christmas, father's day, birthdays or just because you want to say I love you.
