    Beautiful ties! Rob, I'm getting married in June and I'll be wearing a navy suit (Ring Jacket). I love the idea of wearing a tie like yours for the wedding, I kind of feel like bucking the typical wedding tie trend (glen plaid, shepherd's check, etc)! Any ties in your repertoire you'd recommend?

    Thanks!

    Congrats! On the conservative side, I think the Dorothy Cashmere would be great for June wedding with a Blue Suit but we've sold out however we also have the same tie coming in red this week! Any of the grenadine's would also work, I especially like the idea of the red grenadine with a Navy Suit but if it's an evening affair the purple would be cool.

    If you want a real wowzer, try the Blueberry Spring Silk
    http://yellowhook-ties.myshopify.com/products/blueberry-spring-silk
    or my favorite from the bunch the Paint Brushed Blue Six Fold
    http://yellowhook-ties.myshopify.com/products/paint-brushed-blue

    The texture on the PBBS is just phenomenal and I think that'd be the best choice for a Spring Summer festive occasion.

    If there's something specific you're looking for, shoot me a message....we can do a tie on spec for your wedding if there's something you know you'd love. Cost would depend on the fabric, but shouldn't be much different than what we regularly offer.

    Sorry I've been MIA for a while, last week my wife had a kidney infection and I had the flu, this week, I had to get my wisdom teeth removed and graciously gave her the bug so we've been hit hard. I hope to get back to work tomorrow, but she'll be home all week. Hopefully then the social media posts can reboot and I'll be a bit more active here.

    I'm getting married in May. Similar deal, Navy suit though I'm going the 3 piece route.

    I was originally going to go with red and love the oxblood but it feels like I am going to a business meeting. I am strongly leaning to the sea foam or painted brush blue.

    Decisions..

    Congrats! The sea foam, to me, clashes a bit with my navy, but it's a beautiful tie. I'm planning to wear a micro stiped shirt (blue/white).

    The oxblood is tempting as well but I like the look of the gray/blue (paint brushed blue).

    Yessir. Only one of those was made too, very little fabric. The only three fold's in this collection are the 3 inch pattern oxblood grenadines.

    A couple of looks from this week:

    Not the most artfully composed snap, but vintage raw silk

    Today's denimy look. Can't remember the actual name of this one but it was from last year's collection. Incredibly lightweight and soft.

    @NewYorkIslander - Any plans to ever offer some bow ties? I find myself wearing them more and more over the past year or so and your ties have some of the most interesting fabrics. I'd love to see some of them offered as bow ties in the future.

    Extending the Easter 10% through this week. We'll be out of town, and any orders placed after yesterday will ship next week...BUT we have some big news coming that I think you guys'll dig.
