Yesterday was freaking chilly here in Brooklyn, so I layered up with the second of our collab ties, a solid, streaky blue. Man, this one is total YH.

Agreed. My first thought was "Dibs."
 

Justinkapur - tie looks great and that looks like a lot of handwork on the lapel. Looking forward to seeing the full shots.

 

Rob. Was thinking of ordering a chambray shirt through Epaulet's EFF and decided to hold off and wait for your offering. No pressure...

Back off ReedCA -  I already called Dibs. You can have second dibs if there is more than one.

Yea, the X Pattern did come out nicely!

LOL, we are doing two chambray dress shirts (spread collar) one in a very light blue and one in a more traditional blue. Not long, perhaps 6-8 weeks fingers crossed. Price point will be a little higher than EP, but know you're getting the very best made, single needle American shirt from us. We could have gone with options that would have been less expensive makers, but they were these massive factories and to be honest the product wasn't as nice. Our shirts are made side by side, with the same single needle detail that Domenico Vacca's American made shirts are, but at a fraction of the price they charge. It's a small shop and the owner is there 6 days a week, with a handful (literally, I have never seen more than 4 women working there) making these shirts completely by hand. There's no digital cutting, no computer patterns, its all by hand, and considering our ties are made in a similar fashion, by hand, I felt good going with this crew, and the shirts are second to none. Plus it's right here in Jersey which is also important. I want to try and keep everything as local and close as possible.

Figure this would be a good time to update the denim shirts...which we've nailed our two patterns and I'm absolutely in love with. the issue with our shirtmaker is that they are too small, and don't have the proper machinery to run even a small production like ours. They wound up breaking tons of needles making the samples and doing double needle design with a single needle machine. We do have a couple of other local options we're checking out, and one of them that I'm hoping will work out, is right down the street here in Brooklyn. A Made in Brooklyn Denim Workshirt would be so kick ass, especially considering they'll be named for each of my grandfathers, two working class Brooklyn guys and veterans of the Second World War. One "The Galliano", after my father's father (who drove a truck in the borough and a few other nefarious things) will be for the two round pocket shirt, and the other, "The Tony" for my mother's father who essentially raised me until he died and worked at White Rock Soda in Red Hook and used to take me to OTB all the time (hence the large "Ticket Pocket" that can hold a race sheet, or a smart phone. '

I rocked the Galliano Yesterday:
