The biggest question I have now is whether to get the St. Pat's linen:

or the salmon raw silk:

2 things:

 

1. Unless I'm mistaken, I believe all YH ties are lined, though whatever lining they use makes them feel virtually unlined. I have a few unlined 6/7 fold ties, and I'd say without hesitation I strongly prefer YH.

 

2. Unless you snagged the St. Pat's, that baby is gone...though you might be well served shooting Rob a PM, as he is usually able to wrangle up some additional fabric to get the job done!

 

Edit: let's see some pics of that sucker when you wear it out!

I was actually the one that snagged the St. Pat's linen. :slayer:

Think you made the better choice for warmer weather. That Salmon Raw Silk is an Easter tie, that would be great for the Easter/Passover Holiday when the Sartorial and Conventional Calendar says its Spring (bright colors, patterns) but the thermometer is fighting real hard to hold onto Old Man Winter!

And yes, @ericgereghty is correct, our ties are lined, but with an incredible lining you'd never know was there that we worked really hard to find. I was a firm unlined tie believer until we found these linings which I'll never deviate from they breathe so well.

+1 on the lining. Whatever it is, don't change it! I have quite a few (high quality, at least in terms of price lol) unlined ones that become a bit scrunchy/wrinkled at stress points, even in heavy-ish wool fabrics. The ONLY YH ties I have that even remotely exhibit similar characteristics are my linen pieces...and nothing short of divine intervention could prevent a linen tie from wrinkling.

 

In other words, YH has its ish on point, and I don't want any changes!

Shirts and the entire spring line of ties look great.

I was trying on a new suit today with a red cashmere from a few seasons ago (I think).

Another sample denim for our work shirts. Depending on how this one washes and dries, we'll decide if its a go, but i think the pattern is just about perfected.









So if you prefer your shirts like this, and a bit loose, we recommend dry cleaning. I'll be rocking the same shirt tomorrow after a warm wash and dry to get any shrinkage out. We're also looking for color fastness on it. Raw denim will always bleed color so it's vital to ensure that the wash doesn't strip it of any of its character. Stay tuned...

I haven't posted in this thread in a while (although my Yellow Hook ties remain my go-to neckwear lately), but I wanted to come post here after I saw you post this shirt up on Instagram. Absolutely fantastic! Sign me up now!

Thanks man! We're getting rave reviews on these....we're one step away from a production go. Unfortunately we'll only be able to make about 12 units of each for now of the denim (thats what we had available to us, as these were the last bolts that remained) but if all things go well, I'm hoping to perhaps one day down the road design our own denim so we can keep something in permanently.

Here's the same shirt from Wednesday on Thursday after a wash and dry....color is GREAT on it.







This shirt is really reminiscent of old French Workwear jackets. Has an almost lineny characteristic and we're hoping to get enough of this to make it in our First Production run for Spring/Summer alongside the red denim.

So my Monday morning was much better than normal as a nice little package from Yellow Hook arrived.  Inside was the St. Pat's linen and it's a superb tie.  Weight wise, it's heavier than the Magic Crepe tie that arrived (and was worn) last week and is an excellently constructed 6-fold tie.

 

Certainly everyone at my office will be overcome with envy when I wear this on Thursday.

First wear of my first Yellow Hook

Navy Jacquard in action. Really awesome, grenadine-ish looking that is so light in weight it's almost unbelievable...apologies in advance for the crap-tastic that don't do the tie near enough justice.
