Should have 3 YH's (brown donegal, and crepe from Rob, blue donegal from Spoo's reedonkulous sale...though I'm still smarting over losing the cabernet cashmere lol), coming by end of week...Christmas done come early. 

 

You got some real gems there Eric. Please post pictures of the blue donegal when received. I can't see the true details of the tie on my low-resolution phone.

Much thanks,

Imy

Rob,

 

I think you might regret letting some of these beautiful pieces go especially the very woolly H&S, the 60's/70's vintages, Irish tweeds, and the Cabernet cashmere.

 

I can't wait to see what you have for the rest of the season.

PS: GO JAYS!!!! I'll be in TO watching the game. {I know this is a YH tie forum with the occasional Bourbon/rye/whiskey/scotch talk, but I cannot contain myself today}.

Will do.

 

Rob, my apologies in advance for doing the blue donegal no justice with the forthcoming pics...blame it on Apple lol.

 

Go Jays (and Mets!)

Baseball fans, it would be nice if you posted in the MLB thread, we need more voices in there!

Also, loving those ties Rob posted in Spoo's thread. Still looking through, might get one or two

A few snaps of the paint brushed brown fresco. Apologies for the super washed out shirt...probably would have been better with a blue, but it helped to more accurately highlight the insane texture of the tie.

Thanks @SpooPoker, thanks @NewYorkIslander

Rob you remember what fabric this was?
post #1402 of 2335

As I stated over on the Luxsewap thread; you can't go wrong when you're purchasing from two of Style Forum's top notch affiliates and from Rob and Spoo. Rob's ties never fail to impress. Looking forward to trying the shirts soon as well.

@Goodman out of curiosity, what it the right side navy? Birdseye wool?

post #1404 of 2335

Truth is, I'm not sure exactly what it is. It is navy Birdseye but the fabric has more of a Fina Grenadinish look to it while feeling more raw than other grenadine ties I have. (i.e. It looks like grenadine but feels like wool.) I may have to defer to Rob or someone more knowledgeable here to name the fabric/style. All I know for sure is I like it a lot.

Dressed in all BLUE today in honour of the Jays EPIC win last night :) including my baseball cap (perhaps a fashion faux pas for the classic menswear forum).

 

Rob, when the Jays meet the Mets in the World Series :), I will definitely be coming down to NY then I can finally meet the real live YHN Rob and not just the digital version!

 

This is a great tie and knots so well. I tried something different with the knot today. What do you think? It's a four-in-hand but wrapped twice (not sure of the proper/formal name for this knot).

Presumably a YH burgundy plaid?

 

If so, please post real life pics when you get the chance!

@imys congrats on the Jays. One of the most incredible sports events I've ever seen. Let's hope the Mets (loved the trash talking card Rob!) can win and do so in much less stressful fashion! That knot, I believe, would just be called a double four in hand. Tie looks incredible, but I generally do not like the DFIH, as I find it difficult to dimple.

 

@Wood  Can I trouble you for pictures out in natural lighting? hard to tell much from those pics. On a side, the shirt looks cool. Like the texture.

Thanks for the info on the knot Eric.

 

A follow-up question to you and others then: 'Should' I always be dimpling ties? (I guess 'should' is a matter of personal preference but I would like to know what most others do). I noticed all of Rob's fit-pics have dimples. If not, are there times where dimples are/are not warranted? A single dimple? A double dimple?

I have zero idea as to the proper etiquette of it, so I won't even attempt to speak on it lol. I prefer dimpling my tie, and for me it is a natural part of knotting one. I THINK my preference is based on previously experience (once upon a time) with garbage quality ties that would not make a dimple at all.

 

I do think tie material will play a role. Using YH for example, the brown fresco above was difficult for me to do a classic "front and center dimple," while the dimple naturally presented itself off to the side. On another side of it, the purple cashmere presented a natural double dimple of sorts when I've tied it up. Neither worse than a classic dimple in my view, but different. To be clear, I'm sure a "normal" dimple could be achieved with any YH tie, but I allowed the slightly irregular dimples to have their day. A big reason for me is how rough my hands are at the moment. I highly value my calluses (as odd as that sounds lol) for weightlifting, and have a bad habit of letting the rest of my hands go similarly un-babied for times...which led me to avoid fiddling with the ties, for fear of snagging them on my "old man hands."

 

Note: I will definitely be getting some moisturizer (calluses will go nowhere though) before wearing the cashmere crepe...that beauty will surely deserve better than old man hands!
