    Question is, would you wash and reuse?

    continual washing will result in ugly fades

    That lifestyle theory/excuse is just bullshit to me to justify a particular taste. Don't get me wrong, I love most of most of those workwear/americana/heritage brands produce, it's the constant justification I see about it that I find most annoying.

    What I find most annoying is that anyone's taste needs justification. Whenever a new workwear thread pops up, folks who don't wear/like workwear chime in like clockwork to mock or criticize it. I would hope we all wear the clothes we choose because we find them aesthetically pleasing on various levels.

    Who cares? My taste in clothes has changed several times over my life and it may change again. That said, I'm thoroughly enjoying what I wear these days, all the way down to the thread of the fabric. So, I can't imagine my taste changing anytime in the future at all, hopefully.

    What's their website? I can't seem to google it.
    http://www.thehill-side.com/ Curious to see if they expand beyond ties/bandanas.

    I don't wanna live in a world where there's no market for selvedge cumrags

    I'm sure it wont be long until Kiya starts selling Flathead toilet paper, made from zimbabwean cotton paper pulp, with selvedge seam. Woven extra thick of course so you only need 1 or 2 squares.

    shit, I'd buy it


    HAHAHAHA

    Jeez....WIPED OUT of the bandanas already. I was going to look like an asshole with a chambray face mask anyway.

    Got my bandana today. The chambray is beautiful, but a bit heavy for a bandana. Still, I'll enjoy wearing it. Let's see if it softens up with a soak...

    I wear bandanas for work, I should have jumped on this and made it real authentic workwear. Just imagine how stylish those sweat stains would have been.

    The ties are 55 inches long and are selvage at both ends? For some reason I remember reading somewhere that most selvage rolls are like 27 to 36". Can anyone confirm?

    I'm willing to bet there's a split in the tie somewhere.

    Just got my order today. Love the fabric, though I definitely won't be buying any of their ties made from this stuff. The labels they stitched on are annoying and are going to be taken off later.

    Looks good. oipolloi had a really nice red linen cotton blend that looks a lot like chambray, but alas it is sold out in my size. Link
