    New up on Context - this stuff looks great: http://www.contextclothing.com/brand...he%20Hill-Side

    I just ordered some of the bandanas and the pocket square. I don't get quite understand the need for the ties in some of those fabrics though, but whatever. Can't wait to see what else they'll put out.

    I can't get over the fact that they're calling them pocketsquares and not handkerchiefs. Anyway, I really like the plum violet PS and tie. [​IMG][​IMG]

    Well they have the bandana at 21x21 and the pocket square at 13x13. I guess the bandana would be what you'd call the handkerchief.

    I think the chambray ties are the only ones I like, especially that pink one.

    Yeah, that Context email made me take a look, too. I wonder what the hand is like on a couple of these items.

    +1

    Would the hemp denim tie look silly with a black suit?

    ^ Hopefully on the soft side, especially since this dude is rubbing his glasses with the chambray. [​IMG]

    Next time I'm out chopping wood and delivering my calves, I'll be sure to wear these. I'm sure all of you will too.

    luckily, true vintage carpenters (and some of the better repros) have a little coated gauze pocket just inside the zipper in case that happens.

    On topic - some of that stuff looks real nice but not for me, which is saying a lot considering my current chambray fetish.

    [​IMG]Not this time actually. The ties are too short (and too expensive) for me. And I really cant imagine what theyd go with.

    I'm very curious to know how soft this fabric is when someone gets their order.

    We need CityConnection to chime in on the safety of chambray hankerchiefs on glasses.

    Definitely around my neck, but occasionally in my back pocket. Funny thing is, I'm working on a project right now to make an indigo selvage bandana.
