Yup! Purple it is. I have a hard time wearing this one with anything but solids so any insight appreciated.

I agree with @ericgereghty, subtle patterns would be GREAT for this tie, but very subtle.

I saw on Twitter that everything was going to be marked down 10%.  Couple questions:

 

1. Is this an April's Fools joke?

 

2. When will things actually be marked down on the website?  It all looks like the normal prices to me.

All is well now.

 

I picked up the Navy Atari Stripe and the Blue/Navy Repp.  Excitement has ensued.

Everything is blooming down here so it seems like a good time for the Salmon Raw Silk to join the party:

Spring Gingham. Beautifully deep navy...and perfectly constructed as usual.

It's so shockingly light (seriously, this thing would blow away if it was tied around my neck lol) that I could easily see myself wearing it into the hottest days of summer.

Note: no, I am not trying out for Chippendales lol...won't be wearing this one for at least a week, and I damn sure wasn't gonna wait that long to post.

Edit: had a minor Patrick Bateman moment over the new stationery as well...good stuff icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Winter's not over here. Back to the heavier wool fabrics.

Random, probably elementary, question, but when you guys are wearing more textured ties (particularly woolen ties in fall/winter) do you trend towards more textured shirt fabrics?  I typically wear broadcloth virtually every day but am wondering if some twills/pinpoints/royal oxfords would better suit some of these ties.  It's too hot down here for such fabrics in the summer (at least for me) so am I right in thinking that an end on end is a good way to change it up a bit when the heat is on?

Elliott Red Linen under various natural lighting. Such an awesome tie. Fairly heavyweight for a linen, which makes me think (hope, really) that the inevitable wrinkling will be more rumpled...and crazy texture.

Chambray is the king of texture for warm weather shirts....and we'll be stocking a couple this summer! be on the lookout....the texture and streak of a nice chambray is hard to beat!

Spaking of streak, take an inside look at our latest collab with Gus Walbolt from @abitofcolor....antique Batik Cotton from Mali. You can read more about it on our wordpress blog (https://yellowhookblog.wordpress.com/), but right now we're testing out product samples:

I was delighted to meet Rob last Fall in NYC at the Styleforum event The Proper Kit. I've always enjoyed his contributions to the forum and reading about the launch of Yellow Hook Neckwear. I was especially impressed by the quality and workmanship of his handmade neckwear (and his stash of great bourbon) . It seems like everyone is making a "handmade" or "artisan" tie but Rob's ties are sewn in Brooklyn by old-school makers. You won't find a better made tie anywhere in the classic American tradition.

Our collaboration will feature vintage Mali indigo fabrics that I've sourced. Rob is currently wearing and testing their construction. Since the fabric is hand loomed it has a unique texture and feel making it different from any regular neckwear fabric and may require some tweaks in construction. But, more details to come.

This is very exciting news. I'm really looking forward to the product of this collaboration between @GusW and @NewYorkIslander. The dye technique sounds quite interesting, such that each tie produced would have its own unique 'DNA' colour pattern/print. Can't wait to see how these unique African fabrics turn out.
