Fwiw, the black covert chambray scarf was my go-to this winter (even more so than my w/h neck duffle). Branding is minimal. It's frickin' big, and warmer than you would think. I think I even folded it up and used it as a pillow on a rough night or three.

I would love to see a pic of someone in a light grey suit, white button down, black chambray tie, red pocket square, and dark brown laceups. If the pic doesn't surface, I'll do it myself. I'll just need to learn to fold a pocket square (which I can't imagine is that difficult). The red could/should(?) barely be poking out of the pocket to avoid taking control of the outfit, colorwise, imo.

Damn this new(ish, kinda) job that I actually have to dress up for.

i thought about the floral but isnt it too busy? i guess with just a plain white or blue shirt its fine

hate the prices on their pieces

The prices may be a little high, but you're paying for fabric no one else is sourcing, and the made in the US element (granted, the cut and sew for scarves and pocket squares is pretty minimal).

They are really working their niche. I like what they're up to... not earth-shattering, and a little pricey, but no hate over here.

I am thinking about picking up either the Purple Chambray or Floral tie. I am just not sure if I like the straight bottom. Also I don't like how the floral tie may transfer dye.

How are people essentially using the Bandanas? Are you hanging them out of your back pocket?

The Corsillio brothers have a wonderful eye. I've been happily stocking Hill-side since their first season. Spring Summer 11 is their best yet. Wait til you see FW 11

To tie up my bitchin' long hair, obviously

Around the neck. I wear a scarf for everyday of Fall/Winter, so it feels weird to be naked in the Spring/Summer. A scarf isn't so practical in warmer weather, so a bandana is the alternative. Out of back pocket is too middle school style.

Fold into a square/rectangle the size of the pocket > put into pocket. Uses:
  • Wiping your sweat
  • Emergency tissue for blowing your nose
  • Soaking up spilled stains on your clothes
  • To cough/sneeze into so you don't cough/sneeze into other people
  • Clean your glasses/phone screen/pocket knife
  • For when you finish washing your hands in a public bathroom and there are no tissues or paper towels
  • For your railroad robber aesthetic
  • Trapped in a burning building: Wet handkerchief and use as a filter so you can breath easier
  • Putting pressure on an injury
  • Impromptu hair tie for a female friend
  • Covering your mouth/nose when walking by a dusty construction site
  • Pretend to be Tupac
  • Tied on your head to keep your hair from your eyes in an athletic activity
  • Tissue to soak up your tears after a romantic comedy
There's probably plenty of other uses I can't think of at the moment. Oh and always keep it clean/freshly laundered...or just buy a bunch.

^ pretty sure Willy's post wins. Esp. since he included my primary reason for carrying one: ballin' like Tupac.

I have one of the bandanas, and I have to say that I would rather have a pocket square. The bandanas are so thick that it feels like I am carrying an entire shirt in my back pocket.

I'm thinking I want a couple of the ties
post #133 of 163
I agree with Z. Pocket sqaure is the more versatile carry for your actual pocket.

I like the ties too. I'm grabbing the floral print one. cue bandwagon music...

I was on the fence about square end ties, then I picked up a knit tie elsewhere. I'm hooked and promptly picked up the Hill-Side SS11 discharge dot. Feel like I can actually wear them to a bar without being overdressed.

it's weird for a woven tie to have a square end but i guess they did that so everyone could see the salvage. i like the brown chino twill tie and i would buy it if i had 80 to spend on a tie.
