Thanks to BadScene I was tipped off to Howard Yount, a brand I was not yet familiar with. Apparently created by a StyleForum poster, the goods are fairly priced and come in a variety of dandy fabrics and patterns. With everyone getting their S/S gear right it's good to update your ties accordingly and Howard Yount has all the good looking knits, linens and silks you need for this time of year. Something like a linen tie is a good look especially for the guy who is fond of wearing oxford shirting year round. By adding the linen neckwear you can take your year round uniform and instantly add a dash of spring with the warm weather fabric. I'm particularly fond of the knits though, which come in some pretty unique stripes and colors - a bunch of really great numbers are on sale as we speak (be on the look out for the rarer classically shaped knits I was talking about yesterday). You can check out everything, including pocket squares, pants and socks, here. Keep in mind the tie width trends towards trad (3 3/8", knits are 2.5") and all ties are made in Italy (many are hand finished).
