    Just a heads up, we will be releasing those streaky Italian silks after all! Hopefully at some point today!

    Loro Piana Summer Linen Shirts are just about ready to rock too...:)

    Dry clean only for the LP linen shirts or delicate wash OK? Probably can't handle any shrink
    Unless it's my waistline that's shrinking.

    I would always dry clean only if shrink is any issue. This fabric is incredible...:)

    @NewYorkIslander - I don't think I saw it in the descriptions here or on the site, but are the LP linen shirts that just dropped, 100% linen or is it a linen cotton blend? (I generally prefer the blend but after seeing the up close pictures of that striped one here I'll be grabbing that one regardless of the fabric composition)

    These are 100% Linen. So lightweight, they're incredible!

    Here are a few of those Streaky Silks:

    And when your fabric guy calls from Italy and says, "Hey Rob, I got some really small pieces of Kiton Mid-Heavy Weight Linen available that will be perfect for Early Fall, do you want them all?" You say YES!

    Also stay tuned for a special Charity/Novelty Shirt Project that we're working on, just in time for The Kentucky Derby.

    @NewYorkIslander how do you suggest storing a Yellow Hook cashmere tie? Hanging or rolling? Or laying flat?

    I hang mine, though it's probably not the ideal of the three mentioned. There will eventually be a (very) negligible amount of stretch with hanging. Not enough to compromise the tie's integrity by any means, but a slight change nonetheless.

    I think storing flat, folded over twice, would be your best bet.

    Best way is most certainly to roll them up, but a lot of guys simply don't have room. I bought a tie hanger from Kirby at The Hanger Project...

    Thanks, gents, for the replies. I will roll up my best and won't feel bad about hanging the rest!

    To be clear, you shouldn't feel bad about hanging any of your ties...especially if this is your first YH. Once you get one, you'll wind up buying too many to roll them all, so you might as well prepare yourself mentally!
