post #1411 of 2335

A few snaps on the brown donegal on the maiden voyage. Perfect for fall, and absolutely fits my sensibilities to the T. Mostly solid, with oodles of lovely texture. Pretty soft hand for a donegal, but also has that expected "grit" to it.

Much obliged, sir! I think we should also throw some love to @kickstand for his similarly impeccable taste in neckwear (I believe the exact same tie lol), posted within the same minute as me. I think we can all agree that this is proof of Rob's sorcery skills!

 

On a side, much love to Kent Wang for the square as well...

 Love the tie, dimple, PS, and I'm a fan of white shirt. Overall great combination. 

 

I need a jacket in that colour to go with an older brown donegal I have from YHN. Details please?

Ask and you shall receive.

 

 

 

As a bonus, I just recieved the two ties that I ordered from Spoo. If my Yellow Hook knowledge serves me right, they are both from the Churchill Collection that Rob did awhile back.  Grey based donegal tweed from JG Hardy and a black Super 130s English Wool.

@imys sorry to inform, but this is an ancient (probably as old as me lol) bespoke piece from my pops. Harrison's does have a few camel hair (this jacket's fabric) fabrics in this color that would do the job well. I'd imagine they also have plenty of flannels in a similar tan-ish color that would work. Obviously you could do more formal fabrics as well, but the donegal in my opinion screams for a camel hair/flannel. @NewYorkIslander any insight on this? I know you have an absolutely money camel hair SC.

 

@Wood Damn. Just once I'd like to see a YH tie that I genuinely do not like. I feel like every tie I'm mehh about based upon screenshots invariably winds up looking stellar in real life. The burgundy dominates the tie far more than I expected...a great choice indeed, on all fronts. I'll be curious to see how you sport the black wool. It gets a bad rap, but I think a solid black tie can be a SUPER sharp look.

Love this tie. Donkey color

Some sorta sexy. Well done as usual Rob and shout out to @spoopoker
post #1419 of 2335

I'll add my new YH to the mix--this will be my go-to brown wool solid for the fall and winter.  Thanks Rob for letting these go at such great prices.  I'll be back for more.

Spoiler alert: no pics (see post regarding old man hands lol)

GET THE CREPE WHILE IT LASTS!! It is such a stunning piece.

To my surprise, it was a much deeper orange, closer to a burnt orange rather than a semi-dark pumpkin color orange...incredibly versatile. I can think of almost nothing it would look bad with.

If you get it, and own something that it doesn't pare well with, throw whatever that something is out!

YH has really outdone itself with the crepe...and way to be Mets!
post #1421 of 2335

So it is orange and not cinnamon brown? I thought it would be close to the dark camel color the last YH vicuna/cashmere came in.

You know what, I'd say Rob got it right (no surprise there) with the cinnamon brown label.

I'd call it a very, VERY deep/murky orange and cinnamon brown hybrid, but that is just how I interpret the coloring.

Either way, I would recommend absolutely giving the crepe a go if you're even remotely considering it, or even if you're not...you will NOT be disappointed!

I'd have fit pics today, but I've got a birthday party, and I do not want drunk women playing with my tie...

Rob you remember what fabric this was?

iirc this is the Grey Herringbone overcoating Three Fold from the Churchill Collection.

(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.

It's hard to see here and I sent a boat load to @SpooPoker but @Goodman I believe this is a Wool Fresco...We did a couple of ties in this fabric, really nice stuff.

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

@ericgereghty I will take one out and get you some natty light pics later today, sorry I haven't yet.

And yea, Mets look good. I hate that the country will be rooting against them with the Cubbies in the NLCS and that whole Back to the Future thing...but thats ok, I felt it was us against the world in the Dodgers series, so this will be no different!

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'm dimply challenged...I love how guys like @SpooPoker and @Claghorn and a handful of others are great with it, but for some reason I have a hard time with any of my ties. I kind of give them a quick Sprezz dimple and call it a day. Even when the dimple does come out perfect I'm moving around so much at school that it hardly ever stays.

Great shot of the Burgundy Plaid...its perfect for this time of year. And yes @Wood those are both Churchill Ties! Enjoy.

I freaking love this piece....when we first saw it it was a must buy.


So, sorry for the long delay in responding....we've had cell tower issues in our neighborhood and internet issues in our apartment building. That combined with a new student teacher at work for me meant I've had like 2 seconds of internet accessibility in the past week or so. Internet is back up and running at home, so you'll be hearing, and seeing more now!
