The subject matter of my, present inven tion comprises a label or.index,card holder that is embodied in a coat hanger so that the garment supported by the hanger can be readily identified and listed or indexed in accordance with an index system.

As illustrated in the figures the coat hanger is preferably bent up tro'ma single piece of wire. A hook 1 is formed in the centerand two loops 2 and 3 are provided at each end. Intermediate of the loops 2 and 3 and below the hook I is formed the rectangular frame l.
