Now, if only I had hopped on the bandwagon a year ago...I'm mildly despondent that I don't have one of the Draper's Windowpane Linen gems to call mine frown.gif

Thanks man! That a pretty high compliment! When I started this, i knew we had the talent right here to match what the world's best, if only we could look hard enough. It's easy to go to some of NYC's tie manufacturers and get a decent tie made, but to make something exceptional you need to find the artisans. Thats exactly what we did.

Speaking of art, our English Garden Six Fold is back in stock after selling out last time in like a day. Check it out here:

@Beatlegeuse Am I wrong for thinking it looks a bit more like a tonal stripe tie rather than a more traditional herringbone?

 

On a side, I was initially planning to hold off until I saw more "in the wild" pics, but my patience as pertains to ties is such that I put the order in yesterday afternoon haha.

 

Can't wait to have it added to the collection!

Have some more brand new late summer/early Fall products coming. We started this collection with stuff that leans more summer in those cashmere silk knit windowpanes (which are milled at the same place Tom Ford fabrics are done exclusively btw for those who discern) but now we''ll roll out the more early autumnal pieces, you know, when temperatures are too hot for real fall, in fact, its pretty darn hot, but you're ready for Fall colors? Some super cool BOLD silks, and some of the most luxurious English Cotton Flannels I've ever laid my eyes (and hands) on. Check out these bad boys!

LE Gotham Ties (Sold out already)




Super Silk Tattersall


Cotton Flannel Floral


Cotton Flannel Twill Paisley


Dark Forest Floral Cotton Flannel


Natural Red Floral


Giant Silk Herringbone


Giant Silk Gingham


Cashmere Silk Plaid

Plan on getting some "fit picks" with these done and then they'll be up at www.yellowhookneckties.com

I wouldn't really say it's a tonal stripe, but the herringbone pattern is very faint, and unless you're looking at it very closely with lots of light, it mostly looks solid. It's a great tie, you'll love it!

Of this, I have no doubt.

 

Hope it arrives in time for a Monday wear! As Tom Petty once said, the waiting is the hardest part.

Another exquisite collection Rob! You have seriously outdone yourself again this season with these fine wears. They are all so unique and possess a lot of character. Much continued success to you and the YHN team. Thank you for handcrafting such quality gems.

^^^Just wait until you see the Fall!

Received the Linen Herringbone yesterday evening. A very interesting piece. Construction is great, per usual.

 

Primary takeaways: It is SO dark. There is an incredible inky like tint to the tie, to the point where it ALMOST seems like solid, rather than textured.

 

Also, the combination of the inky color and the matte appearance make it look somewhat like a wool tie, which in my mind will only expand its usage in early spring/late fall...especially in the less than chilly LA climate.

 

Another home run from YHNT.

Here is the linen herringbone in a variety of lighting.

 

Really love the matte appearance. I think the below show just how naturally it appears as a solid tie.
