Awesome! I am excited, I had my eyes on that tartan tie since it was anounced. You can bet it will be worn proudly.

I checked my inbox and span folder, and didn't find anything. May I ask what that the nature of the Christmas surprise is?

Somebody hurry up and buy the W. Bill barley corn cashmere. I can feel my resolve slipping, and I've already got 2 (burgundy plaid, forest puppytooth) on the way!

Brief thoughts (quality commentary excluded because this is Yellow Hook, and we all know the quality is second to none):

- the burgundy plaid is absurd, Rob was totally right. It's like a deep red wine, in that it looks almost black in dark/artificial light. Can't wait to see its nuances in natural light. Glad this one stuck around long enough to me to swipe.
- festive plaid is MUCH better than I initially anticipated. Color is more of a cranberry/maroon than a RED red. Will definitely see good use...makes a PHENOMENALLY proper knot as well.
- I can't say this for the others, as they're sold out, but somebody fucking buy the forest puppytooth!!! It's such a lush color, and such a beautifully plush fabric.

Rob, can you comment on its provenance? To my eye, it looks exactly the same as the light gray puppytooth in design, but, where the light gray feels a bit more like a wool (a beefier cashmere to be sure), this one feel like a slightly more delicate (in the way that cashmere is known to be) piece.

All in all, exceedingly pleased with these kops...it doesn't hurt that I ordered on the 27th and received in time for New Years!

Glad you like bud, one of our biggest drawbacks is the fact that we aren't out in the public eye very much. Everyone who sees and handles our ties says it....as good as the photography can be, its NOTHING compared to what these guys look like IRL.

The Forest Cashmere is Italian Cashmere while the Grey is English. English cash tends to be beefier than their Italian counterparts and would explain the difference. We have a bad ass Scottish Cashmere left in the Stormy Cashmere:

This thing is the tits. Pretty sure our good friend @GusW has one of these...

Yes I do. I met up with @NewYorkIslander at The Proper Kit Trunk Show in early November and picked up these two beauties.




At a time when every #menswear guy is making his own artisan ties or pocketsquares, these Yellow Hook ties really stand out for their subtle, classic and elegant fabrics. The handmade construction is excellent and comfortable. I like the knot of these more than some of my more expensive and well known English brands. Rob really has something special going on here. Because he only makes a few of each pattern, don't snooze if you see something you like.

Gus, could i trouble you for some in action pics of the Scottish cashmere?

It's very tempting...though I must say I find myself feeling very trigger happy for the Draper tonal stripe fresco...which I find shocking considering how tepid I was on it initially.

I don't have any action pics on hand.

Just picture a suave, sophisticated, mature gentleman of impeccable taste wearing it with a pink, blue or white shirt with a navy jacket and a white linen pocket square, jeans and English shoes. smile.gif

Happy New Year Gents! Lots of great things in store this year.....including the eagerly (and long awaited) debut of our luxurious American Made shirting. It's our contention that what is Made in the USA doesn't have to be stiff and rigid and rugged (just look at our ties) but can be just as soft, and beautiful and CRAFTED as something coming out of a workshop in Napoli. We hope you're as excited as we are to see these gorgeous pieces of art.

WOW! I'm looking forward to this. Very cool.


A couple of Japanese brands have done really wonderful OCBD's with classic American Ivy details like locker hooks, real collar buttons, chest pockets, single rear box pleat, but sadly they aren't cut for a taller American with longer arms(e.g. 16 x 35 Kamakura is actually more like a 33.5-34", and most Japanese brand sleeves are 33") ) and they are often cut for smaller chests. What will we be seeing in cut and details. I'd love to see an Ivy classic BDOC style as well as an elegant spread collar dress shirt.

As long as you take the same approach to your shirts as your ties, I know I'll be a fan!

Good luck with it!

Gus, I would have sworn you were talking about me when you made the above comment so we are now officially stormy sea tie twins. I believe we actually spoke briefly at the Trunk Show as we were both checking out Rob's wares.  It also didn't hurt that I walked into the Zegna store in Midtown NYC last week wearing the W Bill Chocolate/Orange tie and the SA's were very impressed.

Just ordered the W. Bill cashmere herringbone and can't wait to see it in person.
