On another note, can somebody please buy the damn Loro Pianas?! I'm not going to have the willpower to hold off on those...

Red stripe on light blue.

Today's YH:



Just a quick mention of how much a mensch rob and Courtney are. A few weeks back I ordered the red barley corn and the Italian silk. Package arrives and i was sent the yellow barley corn instead of the red. I shoot off an email to rob on my commute and receive a lightning fast response from Courtney. Very apologetic, she'll send me the correct tie right away and just please send back the yellow tie when you get a chance. Of course. No problem. Few days later I receive the red barley corn with a note from rob and Courtney. "Please keep both ties as a gift from us, we would love you to have the tie". WOW. I was blown away by the act of generosity and kindness. As a small start up looking to expand into other products this is greatly appreciated. Customer service like this is hard to find. Will certainly continue to be a YH customer for a long time. Thanks again rob and Courtney!

Not to make anyone too jealous, but here is the Loro Piana Rust Orange Windowpane in action.

That is stunningly good.  Just excellent.

That red linen certainly looked glorious in the pictures.  Sort of related topic, I'm trying to figure out what sort of linen or raw silk solid ties would be essential for spring/summer that YHN could hopefully turn into a MTO.  I'll have the green and salmon and you thieved the red.  Any other suggestions?  Perhaps navy, a red-orange, a pink, a blue similar to @imys 's Cuban beach tie, or maybe a teal?

We do have access to some linens, next time I'm at my supplier, I'll get some swatches and perhaps we can throw some MTOs together.

Agree on all counts. Funny enough, as great as some of our lighter color ties are, they just don't move as well. I think it has to do with the fact that shirts tend to be lighter, and not many guys have a "dark shirt collection" where they can justify multiple lighter colored ties. We're working on that too!...wink.gif

I have the khaki linen stripe, and it's one of my favorites.

That was an LP special, one and done. Though, if LP summer blends are you style, just wait until the summer stuff drops. We have more LP in the summer collection than we've ever had in everything else combined!

Glad I passed on that one...Not!

 

At least I received my shipping confirmation for the Blue Magic Crepe and Zegna gingham. I was running a meeting and we took a 10 minute break so I checked my email and had all or 5 minutes to decide and purchase. I wanted to use it as an example of calm under fire when we regrouped but just wasn't the crowd.

It's unfortunate, because they are gorgeous. I love that teal imys showed, but I just couldn't see myself being able to make it "work," I suppose.

 

In regards to the LP, looks like it's time to grease the wallet...I have a feeling I'll be pulling it out a lot in the summer months!

 

@RuleOfRescue is that the purple? I have the navy and red, and those are probably some of my most enjoyable ties to wear.

 

@Beatlegeuse that tie really is the tits....such an awesomely dry hand to it.

 

@Wood I'm still not over my anger/jealousy of that LP windowpane. So damn sexy :slayer:

@ericgereghty

Yup! Purple it is. I have a hard time wearing this one with anything but solids so any insight appreciated.
post #1815 of 2328
I'd say pretty much anything light blue that doesn't have a super dominant design (I.e. Butcher stripes). I think that would look great with a striped shirt or a subtle check.
