With their standard BD collar, which actually had a nice roll not really seen in the photo.

Not positive about the fabric since it's all kind of an blur at this point...

Gorgeous fabric... in both the link and your photo, so I'll assume they are the same. I've got a credit from Luxire burning a hole in my pocket, I might just put it towards the same shirt.

It's a nice one. Not very traditional as far as Oxford cloths go. It's lighter weight and has maybe just the hint of a sheen to it. You just pair it with a nice tie... nod[1].gif

We'll be releasing a few at a time each Friday @ericgereghty, one of which will be part of our new Fall Flash Friday Sales, starting next week.

A MTO lavender linen. Just an amazing lightweight tie in your typical YHN craftsmanship. Sorry I butchered the pics, the tie appears pink but its a gorgeous light lavender colour. Rob read my mind and I am convinced there is nothing he can't get. I have had several MTO from him and I wholeheartedly trust his judgement and taste. (BTW Rob, I want to hijack that light brown blazer from you still). He has delivered and exceeded my expectations every single time.

 

I realize there are some strong feelings on wearing white shirts, and in hindsight perhaps a light  blue would have provided more contrast and pop, but here it is nonetheless. The swatch (the last pic) is the true colour of the tie.

Thanks bud. Appreciate the kind words, and damn, that looks good!

@imys can you describe the ordering process? Did you source the fabric, or leave it to Rob? Curious because I definitely have some stuff I'd love to have YHNT make up for me...

If memory serves, Rob gave me a basic rundown regarding cost, widths, etc, though I hadn't thought to run questions regarding sourcing by him.

Hi @ericgereghty,

 

I have an amazing relationship with Rob as I'm sure most followers of YHN do or will once they get their hands on one or multiple of Rob's ties. As for the ordering process, I just send Rob a PM and describe the colour, pattern, cloth, and look I'm going for/wanting to achieve with some background on formality of the event (i.e., reception, wedding, office work, conference, presentation, or just because I want to wear a tie). I usually leave the fabric up to him as he knows best as to what will work with the pattern/colour and season (i.e., silk/linen/cottons for the Spring/Summer, heavier cashmere/wools/blends for the Autumn/Winter, etc.). Other times, if I truly am particular about something I want, I tell him exactly what I'm looking for (i.e., silk or cashmere, 3-fold, 6-fold, 3" or 3.25" etc.). Otherwise, I leave it totally up to him and his crew. By now, he knows my tastes and looks, and as I mentioned previously I don't even think twice about leaving the rest up to him. On other occasions, I've sent him fabric (knowing that Rob and YHN uphold the highest standard in their fabrics) and we've sorted out the particulars via email. If there are colours/patterns that really cannot or are difficult to describe in words, we go back-and-forth with pictures. And unlike my last post, it really helps to have a proper camera and apply the appropriate filters to capture the true colour (to avoid any miscommunication); probably in natural sunlight. 

 

Hopefully this helps. I'm sure Rob will be able to give you more detail when corresponding with him.

 

Cheers,

Imy

@imys pretty much nailed it down with that post. If there's something anyone wants that we don't offer, shoot me a pm or email and we'll get it sorted. We also are happy to do CMT where the customer send his/her own fabric. Of course if the fabric sent isn't suitable, we wouldn't go ahead without our input. Some fabrics just aren't cut out for neckwear and others I wouldn't feel comfortable about having our name on.

Rob, for a general rule of thumb, are there any fabrics you'd suggest folks shy away from for neckwear?

Sometimes REALLY thick stuff is no good and as a general rule of thumb anything that has any poly or stretch material isn't the best. Corduroy is also pretty poor to work with.
