Maybe a Drycleaning service? They tend to have a lot of hangers and may want to donate them to you.

It helps if you say what country you live in.

many cheap shops like Pound streatcher in Uk and Dollar store in USA sell wire coat hangers.

I also am wondering at your choice of adjectives. The words "strong" and "dark", make me think of coffee. ;-P

However, you call them, "wire coat hangers", which suggests to me that you are refering to the kind made of twisted steel wire.

Artifacts made from steel wire, almost always have some kind of coating, e.g. paint, enamel, etc., for to protect the underlying steel from rusting. Also, for wire clothes hangers, obviously no one wants hangers that will leave rust stains on clothes.

So the color of the wire, and whether it is dark or shiny, is all due to the color of the coating.

Regarding "strong", there is spec called "gauge", which is a measure of thickness for wire, and some sellers of wire coat hangers will quote numbers for gauge.

By the way, the thicker the wire, the smaller the gauge number. E.g. 10-gauge wire is thicker than 12-gauge wire.

By the way, if you want a table that translates gauge numbers into actual diameter, in millimeters, or inches,

E.g. 10-guage wire has diameter, 2.588 mm, or 0.1019 inch.

I've gotten all my wire coat hangers for free from the drycleaners. Are "strong dark hangers" different? Do you have a photo?

Yes, they are sturdier and much thicker..They use to be so thick you could use them as welding rods...The dry cleaners have gone to the real thin ones,...the ones they use here are the thin white ones for shirts/blouses, and a "dummy" hanger( not a full hanger) with a cardboard roll for pants to hang on...Can't take a photo cause I don't have any...lol....Search continuing...Thank you..
