    Outstanding write-up Rob, thanks to SF for
    putting this on the front page....I don't know how I missed this thread until now! Now that I actually need to wear ties for work more often, I'll definitely be in touch for some Yellow Hook goods :)

    Rob is top 5 styleforum contributors, all-time. Hands down.

    I will have to buy a tie from you at some point. They are awesome. I love the attention to lineage and history.

    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.
