    clothes tree

    A clothes tree is a pole, but I hang my clothes on another thing.
    It is a long piece of wood or plastic, with several hooks on it. What should I call it?
    Thanks,

    Clothes tree must be American. I have never heard of it.

    Can I ask you what you use for a wood with hooks on it, to hang your clothes on? Thank you.

    Re: clothes tree

    Do you mean one of these or one of these?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    At the extreme risk of repeating myself, "a clothes tree". Google "clothes tree pictures". Now, I'll be moving on.

    It's the second of those. (The OP asked: 'A clothes tree is a pole, but I hang my clothes on another thing.
    It is a long piece of wood or plastic, with several hooks on it'.)

    Re: clothes tree

    So in American English, for both coat-rack and coat-stand, they use clothes-tree. But in images.google.com it's only for the pole.
    Thank you all.
