    Aweome! Love all your stuff but your denim wear was bananas. Really excited to see where you go in the streetwear direction. All about this.

    Just an edit on my earlier post on sourcing shirtings etc through you. I came to tailoring through Americana and workwear, but could never get fits that suited me, as a fat bastard. The materials needed to get your own made are simply not available this side of the Atlantic either.

    Last Call pieces are now online.

    Guys, our Last Call ties are simply bananas. Absolutely incredible pieces ranging from cashmere, super 150s and silk by Tom FordxLoro Piana, to silk seersucker. All feature our completely hand made construction. You don't want to miss out on these.

    We've also dropped some of our last shirts as well. A gorgeous cross hatch American Chambray button down featuring our amazing collar roll. The shirts won't make it to a sale price, and to be honest, with what we charge at full retail, they're already at least 50-75% marked down to what we should be charging and what others charge who use our shirt maker. We do have a couple of Napoli Spread Collars coming too, so keep an eye out.

    Happy Shopping boys.

    Some very cool ties. What's the general fabric weight on that Zegna silk seersucker plaid?

    Digging some of these ties. Is this the last rodeo, or will there be any additional spring drops releasing in the coming weeks?

    Gorgeously light....is so great, perfect for even the hottest events you'd need a tie for.

    We have a handful of ties still to add, but they'll all be up by later tonight. This is it...

    Black tie might not get the best reception but it’s a staple, especially with grey jacket

    Agreed. I don't have the heart for the twill/satin black (looks more twill from what I can see), but the raw black is damn nice.

    I literally made this for my grey flannel suit. We've never traditionally done ANYTHING black, but this was so crucial for me personally to get in before we stopped...

    Sorry for the extra question but are there are some of these ties that are composed of a little heftier fabric than others? Looking for one that will make a moderately substantial knot if that makes sense.

    At some point we should all talk about our personal favorite tie from YH.

    No prob, thats what I'm here for!

    There are a couple of cashmeres that are/will be released that are pretty hefty...one is a twill, the other is the knit stripe.

    The Drapers Linen Silk will also fit the bill...

    Oh boy, I'd have to go back and check my collection, but a few for consideration:

    Cyclone Flax (sentimental reasons, because Rob and Courtney are both awesome)
    WSL POW from this past fall/winter (so much I bought twice)
    Patriot Stripe
    That really dark wool burgundy plaid from a few years back
    One of the Zegna stripes (probably the wider striped navy version)
