    Forgive me if I missed it, but I didn't see if you answered my post.. Is this multicam? If so, where did you purchase it from?

    Nope, the angle makes the knot looks skimpier than it is.

    I don't think it is. IIRC its designer camo from Italy our suppliers managed to source for us.

    Cool, thanks! I used to be in touch with Crye Precision when they first started producing MultiCam. I was going to be super impressed/shocked they went on to 'civilian' fabrics.

    Some fit pics from this past week. Took my classes to Greenwood Cemetery...if any locals have never been to just walk around and observe, or even take a guided tour, I highly recommend it. One of the most beautiful places in Brooklyn, and one of the last places whose natural landscape best resembles what Brooklyn looked like in the time Bay Ridge was still called Yellow Hook. Once the grid was established the natural landscape was leveled to make construction easier.

    Never Released Forest Green Cashmere:

    The Forest Green was a sample we had created by a new maker...we looked far and wide for someone who can make a tie to our specs, almost to our detriment (we know and have heard loud and clear that most people's biggest gripe with our products was the fact that we never could seem to keep enough stock up). Well, this should help alleviate that. We did not want to rush and push for product before the Holidays and sacrifice quality for a rushed product, but we expect the first batch of exquisitely handcrafted ties to arrive right around or slightly after Christmas...and we know the wait will be worth it.

    TO I'm 99% sure this is sold out and the fabric had been exhausted, but I will check and get back to you.

    Sometimes our makers surprise us, like when we did a MTO for a customer and we only thought there was enough silk for one six-fold. Here's another, and certainly the last piece from this beautiful piece of silk.Very special one-off for the Season!

    Act fast, as once this lone beauty is gone, it won't be made again.

    Will the forest green cashmere ever be produced or is was it solely a one off sample? It looks great.

    It may, we may just have enough left, and/or I can get some more of it. I'll reach out if we can.

    Made the last of our Vintage Holiday Plaids this winter....we'll be on the lookout for some different Christmassy plaids for next year, these will be the last available, only 2 in the navy and one in the red. The red plaid is much softer than the navy with great texture and has a touch of flannel to it while the navy is more traditional and straight up English wool. Two great pieces!

    We are going to be putting up a bunch off one off samples of stuff that has been long sold out this weekend...be sure to stay tuned and keep checking here for exactly when that will be. Prices will be $100 shipped for everything, and most are first quality, were worn once to model, or slight seconds (each tie will be noted individually). I'll give you more specifics once it's all photographed.

    @owljohn looks great in those pics...I still wear mine all the time and it's easily my favorite tie I own. Looking forward to see these samples released, I'll have to keep an eye out so I don't miss out!
