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.

    Cheers,

    Very impressive ties and story. I also have lived in Borough Park of B'klyn for a while. :) Miss those days.
    I don't have a fancy job that requires tie every day, but it will be great to wear on special occasions!

    Love that Loro Piana navy seersucker. I just had Franco make it up for me as well. Should be delivered next week - psyched.

    Great write up and great ties.

    Talk about a hidden gem for any non-SF person who stumbles upon them.

    You got my give back...I had that piece all winter but the funds never happened for me for it, so I returned it to Frank...I hope you wear it well, I had him make me one of these years ago as one of my first bespoke commissions, I loved it, and wore it well past the point where I grew out of any alterations for it.

    Thanks so much for the kind words guys, and thanks to our customers. We know anyone who gets a hold of one of our ties will love them, and they're really unique pieces. We put every ounce of our hearts and souls into these (as does Maria...hopefully we can get her on camera for an interview to post up...soon, but she's very shy) and we know you guys appreciate that...if anyone has any questions, please don't hesitate to get a hold of me, I'd be more than happy to help out any way I can.

    Just wanted to give a heads up to you guys for being so supportive...we're blowing out almost all of our remaining stock at the lowest prices for the 4th, and we ship for free, so its an excellent opportunity to get a truly unique, entirely hand crafted piece at a ridiculously low price...feel free to message me with any questions.

    Haven't run across this until now. Is there a fall/winter collection, or is the day job interfering?

    Yes, we most certainly have a fall/winter line in the works. Check out our facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/YellowHookNecktieCo) and our affiliate thread (http://www.styleforum.net/t/328390/yellow-hook-necktie-appreciation-thread/0_100) where we've been, and will continue to preview our Fall/Winter stuff. We only produce up to 4 of each (some even fewer) tie so I'm also taking pre-orders from SF members to make sure if you see something you like, you'll get it.

    MC, there's a first time for everything! :bigstar:
