Pantsfilter: How to hang pants?

Ages ago, I came across -- and neglected to bookmark -- a page on the Interweb detailing a technique for hanging pants on a suit hanger (the ones with a wooden dowel crossbar for the pants, like this) so that it was nigh on impossible for the pants to slip off. Also, I seem to recall that this page named this method "the Saville Row fold".

Does anyone know this folding technique?

Indeed, I've looked there to no avail. Thanks for the reminder to read English Cut, though.

Best answer: Is this it?

It is hard to explain, and I do not have pictures, but try this:
Hold the pants upside down;
Thread the left pants leg through the hanger, over the bar; from the opposite side, thread the right pants leg through the hanger over the bar to lie on top of the left leg.
The balance and the friction of the cloth will keep the pants on the hanger.
