    Sorry for the late reply. Almost all of these are YH 1 or YH2. Made for me as samples.

    Going to drop our two flannel work shirts this week, as well as a next round of brand new winter ties!!! Get ready boys!

    Hey Rob,

    First time buyer here, excited for new YH ties. Sent an email to the YH bot, but not sure if you'll get it. Figured ok to try here.

    I bought two ties on Thursday, shipping isn't active yet, and got the email today about clearance. Wondering if I could get the clearance price on the ties I ordered (since they weren't sold out). I can assure you that the refunded $40 would go towards something in the upcoming winter drop.

    Thanks,
    Chris

    Just updating here that:

    1) I'm an idiot and can't figure out that I bought the last Wine Puppytooth /facepalm...

    2) Rob kindly reached out and offered a generous discount code for me to use on more neck porn.

    Incredibly grateful...and excited for ties to arrive today! Rob and Courtney, thanks for the great CS.

    I alternate knots all the time. Mostly it just comes down to which achieves the best balance of knot width and tie length. 4IH's yield to narrow a knot while a half windsor with a thick wool tie would look clownish.

    Three GORGEOUS NEW Flannel Shirts. ALL handmade in New Jersey out of superb dead stock fabric we were able to get a hold of.

    First of these are two fantastic Heritage Work Shirts, one on a classic Grey Flannel Wool that we are super short on and another in a terrific and thick Wool/Cashmere Blend. YHshirts17-1008.jpg YHshirts17-1016.jpg

    Both feature pockets large enough for even the largest smartphones and feature gorgeous horn buttons of the grey and wooden buttons on the plaid.

    Next up in the line of flannels is a gorgeous and super strong navy blue polka dot flannel Heirloom Button Down we were able to make ONLY four units of. This is THE shirt you want when the temperature is down and you don't want to wear anything bulky. This fuzzy velvety flannel also comes with fantastic and thick smoke grey mother of pearl buttons. It's a real winner.

    All of these are crafted by hand in our NJ workshop, are priced well below standard retail markup, and are super limited. It's one of the great things about working with such a small maker...no end bolt is too small to craft world class quality shirts out of.

    We've also marked down even further the last remaining Fall stock in preparation for the Winter roll out starting today!

    The lightness of this one is pretty insane. Really good stuff

    If YH keeps making navy/white striped ties, I’ll keep buying them
