    Donegal (light brown colour) from last Autumn/Winter.

    Thoughts on the double-dimple? I wanted to be a little more creative today.

    I'm a fan of creative dimpling, though not all agree...I think its nice to change it up every once in a while.

    New stock is in hand. Whoah.

    We have the return of a couple of best sellers from our initial run two winters ago and a slew of FANTASTIC new ties....some are one or two offs, some we have a decent stock of (well, decent for us is more than 4....you know how we roll).

    Just saw all the new releases on the website. So much good stuff. Really wish I had the budget right now to pick up a few.

    I'd say both tbh, depending on the light. It's not something that gonna shine, but in a bright light it will certainly appear lighter in color. We photograph in direct sunlight for the website, but the instagram pic was unfiltered so you can really see how direct light impacts the color on this particular tie.



    :) Me too.



    You can sign up to get on it on our website....we've generally been slow with the email list but we're going to start utilizing it a bit more now.

    SO, all the new stuff is up guys....and I think you're gonna really dig them. Many of these ties don't have much stock, so if there's something you like, don't sleep on it.

    Some of my faves from this batch are:
    http://yellowhook-ties.myshopify.com/products/woodhouse-denim-tweed-1
    Woodhouse Denim Tweed
    http://yellowhook-ties.myshopify.com/products/chocolate-brown-knit
    Chocolate Brown Knit (only one of these was made)
    http://yellowhook-ties.myshopify.com/products/green-cast-grey-cashmere
    Green Cast Grey Cashmere (this is so freaking soft)
    http://yellowhook-ties.myshopify.com/products/llama-plaid
    Llama Plaid (I'm a sucker for a brown tie)
    http://yellowhook-ties.myshopify.com/products/sky-burst-navy
    Skyburst Navy (there were two, but I had to have one....only one left)
    http://yellowhook-ties.myshopify.com/products/speckle-twill-raw-silk
    Speckle Twill Raw Silk (Skyburst's subdued cousin...only two of these)
    http://yellowhook-ties.myshopify.com/products/zegna-wool-cashmere-tweed
    Zegna Wool Cashmere (Despite the name, this is LP Wool/Cashmere jacketing...and only two are left...we'll be changing the name asap)
    http://yellowhook-ties.myshopify.com/products/vintage-pattern-raw-silk
    Vintage Pattern Raw Silk (another from these that I kopped for my closet...the Historian in me just loves what this fabric has seen...1946, before either of my parents were born)

    Feel free to shoot me any questions, I'd be happy to help answer.

    How green is the green cast cashmere? Will it pair well with indigo chambray or denim?

    Its a subtle green, and I think would work great with chambray...it may be a bit too formal for denim, its a very soft and smooth cashmere.
