Some really cool stuff in the new collection, Rob.

post #1727 of 2335

Love those crepe ties.  It's very difficult to choose between the 4.

post #1728 of 2335

Can you get away with wearing Crepe in Fall & Winter as well or would the tell tale "sponginess" betray you or look odd against a winter weight wool suit/sport coat?

 

I'm having a hard time narrowing it down against the "all". I love the collection and need to keep reminding myself I will most likely need to buy a shirt as well.

I'm partial to the blues (especially the gingham). I don't think either color or fabric would be out of place in fall/winter.

 

I have the crepe rust cashmere, and that looks at home against heavier weighted SCs and flannels.

Thanks. I don't wear ties much once the heat and humidity arrive if I can help it. So, to justify the purchase, it's good to know I won't be limited to just warm weather. Also appreciate the suggestion but by "all" I meant the entire collection. I'm getting pulled in so many directions - with so many great options - and can only justify (there goes that word again) so many purchases.

I think that's what makes YH and Rob's selection so solid. I think the only tie that definitely should not be worn year round is the Salmon Raw Silk, and that's due to the brightness more than the slubbiness of the silk.

 

I feel your pain here...too much damn good stuff! Don't take me as anything resembling an authority on taste, but the below are some of my favorites:

 

Both Blue Magics (major props if Rob used American Gangster as the naming inspiration)

Copper/Cream Dots (love copper tones)

Ice Blue Floral

Napoli Raw Silk Paisley

Navy Jacquard

Organic Blue Donegal (would love to see how its coloring plays in natural light)

River Sky Dots

St Pats Green Gingham

Zegna 100% Cashmere

Zegna Azure Cashmere

Zegna Giant Blue Cashmere

 

That list tells me I either need to win the lottery. That, or marry a rich old broad so that chunking off a few thousand on ties wouldn't even raise an eyebrow...such is the awesomeness of YellowHook!

I think the Blues will be easier to pull off in the Winter, and the Greens in the Fall in terms of color. As far as weight, these are a great year round tie. These are fantastic really fantastic, and like I mentioned on the site, real sleepers.

Yup. These are slightly different than the cashmere in the fact that the wool fibers are much thinner, making it more of a woven type tie (think grenadine) where due to the thickness of the cashmere, it was more of a thick texture.

The production denim has been purchased. We're just nailing down some final details on these. As far as fit goes, think Epaulet plus (thats my best reference point for sizes as thats whose shirts I mostly wear). I wear a Medium in EP shirts and I squeeze into them. My body is more like a "Marge". So the Medium in the two denim shirts we'll be starting with will be in between a Medium and Large in EP shirting. The same will go for our OCBDs and Dress Shirts. I'm thinking of going with numbers though in terms of sizing them up. YH2=Medium, YH3=Large, YH4= XL etc...

Hand Printed Silks are now up!
post #1735 of 2335

Whichever of you suckers snagged the Navy Raw Silk deserves a swift kick to the choners! Great pickup.

post #1736 of 2335
I don't care about the tie, but I had to look up the word "choner".

Technically it should be "chonies," as urban dictionary calls choner a female boner (weird lol)...but I prefer choners, urban dictionary be damned!

 

Edit: snagged the Navy Jacquard. Combined with the Navy Linen Herringbone, and the Zegna Navy Cashmere, I think I've pretty much got the market cornered on navy, solid but not quite plain neckwear lol.

I know the cashmeres and handprinted Italian silks have all the sex appeal, but don't overlook these gorgeous lightweight cotton ties boys. This Subtle English Paisley is a real winner:





And as far as our dress shirts and OCBDs go, above is a shot of what the fit will be like. Fitted has taken on new meaning these days, and while we aren't going to send you out looking like you've thrown on your dad's old Brooks Brothers shirt, we also recognize that when something fits, it's comfortable to move around in. These shirts have taper, but as you can see there's plenty of room to do what you need to do.

I do have a question for you guys re: the dress shirts. Do you prefer a placket front on your shirts or do you prefer a French front? I personally like the placket as it can be worn with or without a tie, but was wondering what you guys thought? The back will feature no darts, and two side pleats to offer room without sacrificing fit. It's a very masculine shirt, and I think you guys will dig.

My first ever YHNT arrived today- the Navy Banker Stripe.  I was amazed at how lightweight it feels, yet it still can tie a solid knot. That's the best of both worlds in my book.  I think they got everything right, from design, dimensions and construction.  This will be my first of many orders (and I'm definitely looking forward to the shirts).
