1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Some darn nice ties up on the site and OMG the pricing now is ridiculously good.

    I really like the grey/brown/burgundy F/W color range.

    I met Rob and Courtney for the first time last week at The Proper Kit. So nice to meet fellow teachers who are into menswear. Thanks again for this beautiful tie.

    Acute, is that the Zegna cashmere?

    On another note, got the ligh gray puppytooth cashmere in the mail. Won't post pics because lighting won't do it justice, but trust me when I said you should be mad jealous! Such a classic design, in a wonderful fabric, with YH's top notch construction.

    Who doesn't like puppies - looks amazing.

    Rob, I have a suggestion for you. With the holidays fast approaching might I suggest you consider offering gift packs. They could arrive prepackaged and wrapped and include 1 bar of Rich & Clean / Yellow Hook soap, 1 Yellow Hook tie and 1 bottle of Four Roses. I only suggest this as I would love to get and give this as a gift. If not I will have to go to Macy's and purchase those boxes that contain the matching Piere Cardin shirt and tie.

    LOL, Jeremy and I are working on getting that YH Soap ready for the Holidays. As far as the booze, I'm without a license...:(

    These were Ralph Lauren bed sheets given to me by a friend...think it made up as a very neat fun 2.5" tie. Waiting for the Cease and Desist.

    Thanks guys! Jacket is bespoke from Ercoles. Cloth was originally intended for a tie, but it was just too thick...Scottish Cashmere and Mink.

    BTW, WBill 100% Cashmere is coming NOW to the web site. But don't sleep on them. As with all of our ties, these beauties were crafted in VERY limited amounts and we were super lucky to have gotten these pieces though our connections in the fabric industry. All I can say, in the words of another famous Brooklynite, is "HUMUNAHUMUNAHUMUNA!"

    Rob, can't you at least until I receive my current shipment to post more ties I want?!!

    Goddness, some real gems there.

    Edit: I normally do NOT like brighter red ties, but I am sorely tempted to go in on the barleycorn W. Bill...what a piece.
