    Well, everyone should come away from the trunk show with at least one of these, but maybe there still be something left for the e-buyers. :)

    I'm looking forward to putting on my wooly mammoth now that the weather is cooler and getting the Hudson blue corduroy on, which has been waiting for its first wear too.

    Hoping to have a few more of these by next weekend...I love these ties, and they were fashioned in the mold an old Jcrew tie I had in college, so not as thick as our standard offerings, perfect for casual wear:

    Selvedge Raw Denim Tie:

    I know this generally doesn't speak to most of our customers, but its a project close to my own heart...I love workwear, I love the qualities of denim, and I love the "fashion" element of the white selvedge. This is made from medium weight (~10 oz) Japanese denim, is unlined, three fold and 3" at its widest point. Would make a bad ass accessory to a standard slim khaki and blue OCBD giving you the chance to sport selvedge without getting your jeans out.

    Second is a Railroad Stripe Selvedge tie...this one we didn't use the actual self edge, as I feel it would contradict the RR stripe a bit, and our sample here was made inside out...our production models will be made with the dark side out. Its also raw denim, but this one is a touch lighter than the 10oz and is also unlined and three fold, 3" at its widest point.

    Here it is as a denim three piece, jean shirt by Epaulet, Jeans by Somet (from BlueinGreene)
    [​IMG]

    So often going to street wear means you have to sacrifice the "hand made" element to your garment, I wanted to bring something that was still entirely handcrafted to the market with a bit of an edge. I think the denim tie will look great after a few years and wear, fade and soften up like your favorite pair of jeans. We did a one wash denim tie before and it even passed a wash test...and was back in shape after a quick hot iron press...so you know its tough as nails and still an old school handcrafted item.

    I like this concept a lot. Particularly the railroad stripe.

    It's times like these that I miss living in NYC. Hopefully there's still a few good ties left for the rest of us after the trunk show!

    I'm concerned about their being ties left for those of us planning to show up to the trunk show on Sunday! I have been really intrigued by these beautiful ties but have failed to pull the trigger in a timely fashion. Even if I don't kop one on Sunday I'm looking forward to just handling one in real life.

    Thanks for the support guys. Good news is that we have not maxed the fabric out on any of the ties at the show, and we should have enough if any sell out. Still have decent stock for tomorrow and here are some highlights from today:
