    We've been away for a few weeks, but all orders placed will be going out this week, so enjoy your ties fellas.

    We've got a couple of great late summer pieces coming out shortly, including some fantastic knits! We'll announce the drops on our facebook page.

    Also, if anyone is interested, we just got one extra of that zegna 15milmil15 that Sticthy is wearing...the very last one...shoot me a message if you'd like it...normal price is $149.99 but since its so late in the season we'll mark it down 20%...$120...and shipping CONUS is always free.

    Holy crap. That tie is gorgeous.

    I didn't see that on the site.

    Also, another note - NYI, you should consider either just showing a closeup of the fabric instead of the entire tie, or the entire tie and a closeup of the fabric on rollover. Everyone knows what a tie looks like, the fabric is what you want to see. And I haven't the patience to click through all of them, though I just did trying to find the above tie.

    the snagging NYI referring to, was that the one thinkderm just quoted, or the OTHER zegna fabric YHNT i have, that was a limited production of 2 or 3 ties?

    dis one.

    Yup, that was one of our first...sorry J. We only made two and they are LONG gone.

    MrJ...I hear you...we're learning as we go and I think thats a nice way to show our product. Photography is one of the things we struggle with the most. Our previews will focus on closeups of the ties for fall and winter,

    I think it'd also be cool if you limited them to a certain amount per row (like three or four) and had damn near exactly the picture shown above, the tie on a handsome fit, with no words unless rolled over. Somewhat a nod to the minimalist look. Shows you a look you could admire, the tie in a not too close nor not too far, and puts the numbers of clicks down.. just another idea. :)

    Thanks man...the reason we don't include a look is because we don't want customers feeling limited with how they can wear their tie...my wife and I disagree about this (I'm on your side) but she has final say with all "business/photog" decisions and allows me complete creative control of the making process (fabric selection, size and style of tie, etc...).

    I guess that's fair.

    What you could do is have an offline webpage that yellowhooknecktie redirects to on her computer that shows it her way. Then have the actual website show online, with our idea!!

    Kind of like when someone told Crete from the office, all he has to do to update his online journal is to type the update in to notepad and save it to his My Documents folder.
