    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.

    @sebastian mcfox great score there. One of my favorites.
    @imys i think the best question is what YH's do you not have ha? Talk about an enviable collection.

    Somebody buy that Zegna Cashmere Gingham ASAP!

    Most are 3.5, a handful of them are slimmer more casual pieces at 3", but they're noted in the description.

    That Banker Stripe is the tits, you'll love it@ASNY2VA

    Touché @ericgereghty ! LOL. Let's just say I had to build a separate room to house them all :) I have gathered quite the collection starting from @NewYorkIslander 's inception of YH back in December 2012! Hence, the date I joined SF. Rob continues to amaze me with each season and I just cannot help myself - they are too nice to pass up. Especially Spring/Summer 2016, nothing like I've seen before - I have already put my order in :)

    Our seasonal temperature fluctuations are also conducive to all the variations in fabrics YH offers so my repertoire of ties is a necessity (or at least I convinced myself of that). There are lots of tie vendors out there but in my opinion no one does it better than YHN: quality, customer service, craftsmanship, and attention to detail.

    A little technicality question, is the grenadine knit different from a normal grenadine?
    Also is the Black Cherry six folds like most of the other ties?

    I'm guessing you already have it, but get the damn solid navy Zegna cashmere if you haven't yet...

    +1. Not my first and certainly not my last. Figured I would try and class myself up or try and get a loan or something. Plus Rob said something about tits and I like those so...

    Love the new collection.

    The grenadine knit has a bit more of open weave than our standard grenadines which can be confused with a straight up jacquard from afar. This tie was super soft and super porous so we decided to distinguish it from the rest by calling it a knit. It was awesome while it lasted...

    As far as the black cherry, construction wise yes, it's pretty much like the rest, although there will be some slight differences between each based on the nature of a hand crafted product.

    Don't be silly...both is the obvious choice!

    If you MUST choose, and you work in a formal setting, I'd say the Jacquard. That said, the Zegna would fit in seamlessly at all but the stodgiest businesses...and even then, the people taking notice would just be doing so out of jealousy [​IMG]

    Honestly, the Jacquard is something we do get a hold of once in a while, but the Zegna is a one and done fabric. I'd choose Zegna if I had to pick one. Its siiiiick.
