Yes, I think the Berkaloo will work with a grey pique suit, especially if it's on the medium to dark side of grey. I tested out the tie on a couple of my grey suits, what's interesting to me is how the Berkaloo transforms them into something more casual, yet still refined. I concluded that it's the combination of the pattern, the color, and the soft cashmere fabric that does that. Very happy with the purchase.
Received my first Yellow Hook purchase in the mail today: the stunning Berkaloo along with a nice hand written note from Rob. Really, really nice tie and practically one of a kind.    It warms my heart to know that family-run, entrepreneurial, craft-based businesses are still alive and well. You've got a great rep here on SF Rob and a loyal following already...I predict nothing but continued success.   Look forward to your next collection.

Thanks for taking the time to read the piece..glad you enjoyed it.   I didn't know that the Boers wore tweed...an ironic situation for sure.  If you don't mind I'll add this to the article.   ...w/regard to Harris Tweed quality, I can't attest to whether it has improved or not. The quality coming out of the smaller mills is said to be good.  That said, I'd be interested to know myself.   For my part, I go with tweeds developed through the London Lounge which...
