    You did, and man, I love that tie! You will too!



    We have one more left, that piece of cloth was a vintage find, and we were only able to get a couple of 3" ties out of it. Our three inch pattern was inspired by a vintage JCrew pattern from the 90's. Its very much in the "Epaulet" model of slim but definitely not skinny. If you'd like it Don, just let me know before I upload to the site.



    Yes, we have some stuff ready to go for before Thanksgiving. We're working on upping our production and have something exciting planned so that we're not so quickly sold out. As a bourbon hunter (think Pappy Van Winkle) I get the frustration of having something you want be so quickly sold out. Hope to announce some good news in the weeks ahead.

    This is coming soon....our first collaborative piece which will be available only at Epaulet in NY: @Epaulet might be able to chime in a bit more on the fabric, but this makes a killer tie!

    Beautiful Cashmere/Mink from the UK, and man, is it warm

    And oh, we have one more 100% pure vicuna left and we're announcing here first....tomorrow morning we'll blast it on SM. Guys, this is the ultimate in luxury...have a chance to flaunt to your #menswear buddies that you got something they don't!

    Oh no wool cash mink!

    Famer brown and purple cashmere are here. Both look great. Farmer brown is an interesting fabric for sure.

    Because it's like camelid butter.

    Or something.

    Its insane how soft the Vicuna is. If money were no object, everything I own would be upholstered in this stuff. And so would the inside of everything I wear.

    Got a Merlot and Grey striped cashmere in the mail today with a wonderful handwritten note. Can't wait to wear it!

    Any recommendations on the best type of knot to go with this type of cashmere tie?

    Is that cashmere mink the same fabric epaulet used for the trousers?

    Enjoy! Our ties were made for the four in hand, and its what I use almost exclusively.



    Yessir! We're stoked about this one.

    Sneak peak at some pre-orders that will drop this week. We'll be offering a choice of either our three inch vintage pattern, which is a slimmer version (but by no means skinny) of our standard tie as well as our standard 3.25" pattern. I've been living in the three inch pattern and think it works great for guys who don't have uber lapels on their sportcoats or look to wear their ties with a pair of jeans or chinos and a cardigan. Some real neat, real vintage pieces in this lot.

    VINTAGE GREY TWEED/CASHMERE

    1950's TWEED - This bolt was literally dated to at the latest the early 50's. The address on the tag from this cloth was a spot on 4th Avenue that after the early 50's was renamed Park Ave, so it could be even older than that, but it is so incredible....you'll never find something like this around today.

    Yup 1950s tweed looks superb as does that gray tweed cashmere and the babe brown.

    Nice work again from YHNT.

    Have a one off cashmere available now....SF gets first shot before I post to the site and SM (Monday).

    100% Cashmere Grey Plaid. We had enough to make one 3" vintage pattern tie from this gorgeously soft cloth.

    It's a real stunner. Since there's only one, the first PM takes it at $149.99.
