Got a little something something here to show off....



Raw denim work shirt sample in the works. I designed this using some classic work shirts that my grandfather used to wear when he worked for White Rock Soda in Red Hook as inspiration. These are going to be made by hand in a tiny little workshop under 15 miles from our apartment using all local labor. Once the first samples come in, I'll get more details out.

Very nice, got my attention.

Awesome tie @imys and sweet prototype @NewYorkIslander (though I guess I should credit you on the tie as well ha!)

"LastCall" gets you 20% off whatever is left in stock this week only!!! After that, all of our gorgeous Spring stuff will be live and we'll pull all of the remaining Fall Winter ties from the site for good.

The quandary between waiting for the spring drops and taking advantage of the super sale, hmmmmm...

Clearly the ONLY solution is to make purchases from the current inventory while eagerly awaiting spring drops!

Note: I would highly advocate someone snagging the black flecked grigio, pictured above. Certainly not the most versatile tie, as far as shirting goes, but it definitely works with lots of different suitings (I would say) and the texture is just glorious...and it makes one fuckin awesome knot.

Just grabbed the Grigio! Been debating it for awhile and the sale was the push I needed. Looks like a winner. Why do you think it lacks versatility?

I love denim shirts, especially after many washings when they soften up and the edges show a bit of wear.

They look especially nice with tailored khakis.

@RuleOfRescue it is most definitely a winner! Saying it lacks versatility (in my view) isn't to say it isn't a great tie. I certainly wouldn't blanch at somebody proving me wrong, but it seems its functionality would be somewhat limiting, at least as it pertains to shirts. It might not mesh well with blue or pink shirts, at least in how I'm envisioning it.

 

That said, it really is an awesome tie, and, in my opinion, looks ridiculously good paired with a white shirt.

 

Edit: I will add that it almost looks shantung-esque, with how slubby it is, but it is still so damn awesomely scratchy and tweedy...best of both worlds in my book!

I just grabbed the W.Bill Holiday Tattersall. I have been watching it for months so glad to be able to grab it at a super price. A special thanks to Rob for personally notifying me that it was available.

I agree that the tie works best with a white shirt, or if you want to go for a monochromatic look, a dark blue shirt. It's why you won't see many black ties from us, except for custom tux orders (wedding ties) which we do all the time for customers. When I saw this piece though, the texture just oozed and I had to grab it and I also I knew, as @ericgereghty mentioned, that the knot would be superb!

I was in this yesterday:
Yellow Hook Neapolitan Button Down Collar Dress Shirt Prototype (these are real close to being finalized, though in a different cotton chambray for spring) and the Light Grey Herringbone Barleycorn

Also, here's a sneak peak at our minimalist design shirting label:
