    Thanks for ordering with us! Its just as frustrating for us doing such small runs, but we're always working on ways to try and improve our production. Almost every solution we seem to find, however, sacrifices quality, which is why we haven't been able to yet. Optimal word being, "yet". :D

    We have a couple of Grigios back in stock:
    http://yellowhook-ties.myshopify.com/products/linen-italian

    and we're getting ready to roll our summer stock out, and we some reviews coming up...we'll start with this bad boy:

    The Linen Dodger Windowpane is made from beautiful Draper's Linen and has a fantastic hand while still being a great lightweight summer tie. I can see this being worn at a beach wedding this summer very elegantly.

    This one was inspired by our favorite bourbon, Four Roses. We'll call it Rutledge Red, in honor of master distiller Jim Rutledge who we think puts some fictional guy named Pappy to shame. Its vintage Raw Italian Silk from the 1960's that we rescued. The piece was so small we only were able to make one tie for production, so just like your favorite limited edition bourbon, if you wait, it'll be long gone!

    Also coming up is a super Bordeaux colored Grenadine and a brown linen houndstooth that are astonishing. Later on (mid-May) we'll have some great colorful Italian Linens...stay tuned!

    I love all my yellow hook ties

    I havent gotten a chance to wear them yet

    The nicest thing is that @NewYorkIslander writes a personal note with each tie!

    I don't wear ties that frequently myself, but I really do look forward to the chance to put on a YHNT. I've got a couple of loud ones that I'm excited to roll out again this spring.

    You guys are gonna flip over this one...

    Coming soon for summer (like next week soon) our Roma Ragazzo Grenadine is one of the lightest weight, more versatile ties we've ever done. This beautiful Bordeaux colored silk is feather light, and will be available next week at www.yellowhookneckties.com.
