Yellow Hook Appreciation Thread - Page 100

Cross post from The Proper Kit thread two ties from Yellow Hook that came home with me. Real beauties.

EXCELLENT choices @GusW

 

Do you by chance recall which puppytooth you got? I pulled the trigger (thankfully, as it's gone) on the cashmere, and I cannot wait for it.

Both lovely ties @GusW. Puts me in mind of the YHNT Terrone I have on my tie rack. Time to put that one in play!

Bill) and they are both fantastic. Also, purchased a bar of soap from Rich and Clean. Figured any friend of Rob's... I'm not remotely into skin care or "scents" but I've enjoyed the product so far and any lingering scent is very subtle and my bathroom has never smelled better.

The chocolate brown W. Bill looks awesome - a perfect autumnal colour. I'm really liking the purple silk too. I'm quite jealous - I will really have to make an effort to get to NY and meet Rob and Courtney. Rob, any chance you can make it north of the boarder :colgate:.

You and me both, that's why I love Autumn and Winter. I have quite a few silks from YHN and they are spectacular. They knot and drape considerably well. Definitely worth the purchase.

Thanks. I have mostly wool's/cashmere's/tweed's as well so when I saw the purple silk it was a "no brainer" and the W. Bill fabrics are just so nice. Funny thing is, the less I need to wear ties the more thought and effort I am putting in to getting really special pieces. Work doesn't require it all that often and play doesn't require it all that often. So, anytime I reach for a tie these days it's either for something important or something I choose to make an extra effort for and want to look my best. Pedestrian ties just don't seem to cut it anymore.

I wish I could man! My teaching gig is driving me up a wall this year. We're going to be heavily investing in the company though this next calendar year, so expect lots of GREAT new items, not just neckties, that we'll create, that we think are the best on the market. Perhaps a business trip to MTL or TO wouldn't be out of the question then.

We just posted a few of these articles this week on our facebook page, you know, the ones that talk about the history, relevance and future of the necktie. If you haven't gone over to us to check it out, please do....we post new content almost every morning.

I have to say, meeting Gus and Bruce at the Trunk Show this weekend really sparked in me a desire to dress a little bit differently at work. This week it was like a combo of the old Rob, and the Rob of jeans and tee shirts that has been more "around" the past year or so. Here's some of this weeks looks:

Monday:

New Railroad Stripe Denim (SOLD OUT but more incoming...will have a pre-order option up shortly)

Tuesday:


OLD Railroad Denim Stripe (LONG SOLD OUT - from our first Spring Season)

Wednesday


WBill Emerald Red Windowpane - available now here: http://yellowhook-ties.myshopify.com/products/w-bill-emerald-red-windowpane

Yesterday



Dwyer Paisley Six Fold - available now here: http://yellowhook-ties.myshopify.com/products/dwyer-paisley-six-fold
post #1494 of 2319

love all the looks Rob, fantastic.

 

And I second that trip up "north", heck I'll drive the 6hrs to MTL if you don't make it to TO, but then why wouldn't you??

post #1495 of 2319

If you ever decide to offload that blue donegal SC, I will seriously shank a fool for it.

 

Not you, of course...I'd pay you...I'd just shank the person(s) who tried to beat me to it!

LOL @ericgereghty

Gonna be working a bunch of new Fall Stuff on the site today!
post #1497 of 2319
My reaction to most of the new listings to the site: holy tits! Seriously sexy stuff.

My apologies in advance if this is in any way uncouth, but does the SF discount still apply with the new pricing structure? Certainly understandable if it does not, but it doesn't hurt to inquire.

Dude! Never uncouth! Part of the reason why we adjusted the price structure the way we did was because we felt folks were waiting for sales to buy our stuff, so essentially everything is already priced as if it's on sale! Having said that, we will probably run two big sales at the end of the Winter and end of the Summer to clear out remaining stock from the past season, but as you know, a lot of the great stuff goes fast, and since we never make more than 4 of a piece (just how we do business and how I can get such great cloths at superb prices and also classifies us as a "Green Company") we're usually down to just about nothing by then.

So....HAPPY SHOPPING!

OK boys, all of the rest of our Fall/Winter gear is up and live and ready to roll out. A lot of these new pieces are one and done, many are two and done and really just a couple are three or four.

But, also think it's a great time to share what we're working on with our friends at The Rich and Clean. We spent a really tough Saturday night doing some "research" and I think we've nailed a few whiskey based men's soaps that will be Yellow Hook Exclusives. These things just exude manliness and I think will make great additions to any man's shower:



All of their stuff, like ours, is crafted entirely by hand, the old fashioned way, and comes from the same building that our ties do. Jeremy is an upstairs neighbor and a really solid dude, but one of those guys who builds stuff, makes stuff and all around does cool "man shit". We think that his aesthetic meshes perfectly with ours and we're really proud to have him be our first collaborative effort. I'm fairly sure we'll be rolling out with two bars, one will be made with a bourbon whiskey scent, and one with single malt scotch whiskey scent and as you can imagine one will be sweet and smokey and the other will be smokey and leathery. I've been wearing some testers the last few days and am REALLY excited. You all should say hello to Jeremy @TheRichandClean!

I'll get up a preview of all the new ties tonight or tomorrow morning. So stay tuned.
