    If it is domestic delivery I've never had to sign for a box. Go to work and earn more YHNT $. [​IMG]

    Haha, done and done. I haven't gotten a USPS package in a while so I wasn't sure if they'd require it. UPS delivers all my Amazon Prime orders and they don't require it.

    Sorry, man. I either got the 2nd to last one or very last one. All three ties I bought were the last one or two in stock.

    Yea, we're pretty low on stock, but I have to say, the Dark Houndstooth and the Scottish Blackwatch Cashmere are both up there in softness with the cocoa...simply gorgeous fabrics.

    Are you experiencing any backlog on shipping items? I got an email on 1/20 with a USPS tracking code but there's been no change to the status of it since then - just the electronic shipping info received status saying they were notified to expect a parcel.

    Edit: You can disregard, man. USPS just updated 30 mins. ago. It's at their sorting facility in NY so looks like I'm on track for delivery around the middle of next week.

    I got the cocoa cashmere, English tattersall, and dark glen plaid cashmere and can't wait to rock all of these.

    I've never really seen a pre-tracking number linger like that so I wasn't sure what to make of it.

    Sorry about that...sometimes our Post Office here isn't the greatest, but its the one we have to work with. We generally get orders out the next business day after they are ordered on our lunch hour, or the latest on our way to grab our kids after school (4PM). The storm threw everyone for a loop here as well, and Tuesday was the first day POs were open (Sunday and MLK Day) so it wouldn't surprise me if that sat there an extra day or two. I would expect them to be to you by Monday tbh, as once they get out of NY, its a quick trip! Let me know when they get there...I'm sure you'll love them.

    FYI if it's insured for more than $200, sometimes your local post office (at their discretion) will request a signature.

    Like everyone, have always been a fan of that white Stark. But even more, really like the casual flannel shirt choice here. It works really beautifully with the tie and jeans. Helpful and great to see casual shirt + tie pulled off well.

    I'm picturing some sick linen and shantung stuff and I can almost hear my wallet weeping.

    Lots of awesome linens (some real lux stuff too, think LP Linen/Silk) and some super silk knits. We've shied away from the shantung as I feel it needs a more beefier construction than what we do. If I can find a real nice heavy one though, you now we'll carry it!

    Just got them today like you said. Thanks very much for the handwritten note, too. That type of stuff is a dying art and it's good to see guys like you and the NMWA crew adding that personal touch to the online experience.

    As for the ties - holy shit. Amazing. All three of these will be in heavy rotation. That cocoa cashmere is nuts. I'm really lucky to grab one of the final ones in stock.

    Just received my first tie from Yellow Hook - the cashmere houndstooth (I'm concentrating on building up a few basics from various forum vendors right now, after which I will only be buying one or two very special items).

    The tie is lovely, but as others have remarked here, it's also the personal service and small touches that make receiving a tie from Yellow Hook a pleasure. And the postage to Japan was remarkably quick and not expensive at all.

    Thank-you very much!
