Tie One On

It is finally time to re-tie-r my extra wide neckties and start wearing some cool slim ones. So far, the best I’ve found (short of the legendary Rooster ties) are produced by a Brooklyn-based company called The Hill-Side founded by the brothers Emil and Sandy Corsill, former graphic designers. They get their fabrics from Japan and manufacture them in New York. The ties are available in selvedge cotton and hemp indigo denim, selvedge khaki
chino, and dark tan waxed canvas, each designed for everyday use. And they make handkerchiefs and scarves too.
