    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.

    Time to do some well deserved YH horn tooting. Earlier this year, I posted in the thread inquiring as to whether anybody was willing to part with any of the older classic YHs...obviously there were no takers lol.

    However, I think the next day Rob hit me up saying he would check into the availability of some of the fabrics I was looking for. He found a pair, and offered to do a couple MTOs for me. Mind you, while I made the initial inquiry in the thread, the call to action was entirely Rob's initiative. I asked to have them made up slightly wider (3.75") than normal. Below is a crap pic, but most here will know the awesomeness of the fabrics.

    Left is the Cyclone Flax. For better or worse, this is probably the classic YH tie in my mind...I was super pumped to find that there was enough of this for a MTO. Such an awesomely "raw" fabric, that feels much grittier than a normal linen.

    Middle is I believe a Zegna navy houndstooth, in a wool/silk/linen. Another awesome fabric...with the houndstooth being such a deep navy it almost resolves to black...and one can never have enough (almost) solid navy ties.

    Right is a hand printed Italian paisley silk from one of YH's earliest endeavors with the style, and holy tits, this thing is so light it's absurd. It's featherlight, to the point it doesn't even drape when jostled about...to say it flutters is probably more accurate. The awesome part is that the paisley is subdued enough that it almost becomes a neat-ish pattern, which will easily work with a suit. Seriously ridiculous. I don't think I've ever handled an airier tie.

    Anyhoo, sorry for the rambling, but absolutely had to show Rob and Courtney the love they so thoroughly deserve...mind blowing customer service.

    Edit: nearly forgot to mention that the paisley was a freebie that Rob threw in for no reason other than he's the man!

    Enjoy them bud! I always rave about the Italian Handprinted Silks, they seriously are lighter than anything I've ever felt, just incredible right?

    My loot arrived today and as always, I am super impressed. If you haven't already purchased it, you need the the Summer Blue Streaky cashmere/linen/silk in your collection. It is just stupid soft and a perfect color for the season. I can't recommend it highly enough.

    Ties this good deserve action photos in sunlight with appropriately thought out rigs to generate maximum jealousy.

    For those who are interested, the Made in Brooklyn Denim Work Shirts WILL be happening. We have "saved" some very small pieces of denim and our first batch will be EXTREMELY limited in number, and each shirt will be hand numbered. Final numbers are not yet in, but don't expect more than 15 for any of the styles with some of the shirts only yielding one or two pieces. Here's one that we'll be running, a super cool light blue Italian Denim originally milled for Ralph Lauren.

    [​IMG]

    The pattern is based on an 1890's dress shirt pattern with a really cool divided placket that can be worn either tucked in or out. We'll also have two different chest pocket styles, one with one for a smart phone and/or small notebook and one with two rounded flap pockets. All of these shirts are stitched by industrial Juki single needle machines and feature keyhole button holes with metal buttons. It's all I've been wearing lately.

    Tried the printed silk today- could be the lightest tie I own, even lighter than Vanda's...

    @NewYorkIslander I must say you have just killed it with your summer collection. There's not a single tie that I wouldn't purchase given unlimited funds. Really excellent all the way through.

    I don't want to miss the opportunity to pre-order the new shirts. @NewYorkIslander when do you think you will post measurements and start taking orders?

    I just spoke with our shirtmaker yesterday....hopefully by the end of the week I'll get measurements. I'll reach out to you @GusW when we do.
