Today we’re featuring the outstanding handmade ties of Hack & Hue. According to founders Brent Kochuba and Bob Boylan, these longtime friends founded this Brooklyn-based company in 2007, “To create products whose quality and style are timeless.”
They explain: “[Brent] came across an old wool YSL necktie when walking past the window of a vintage shop in NYC. We attempted to find a newer version of that same tie. Long story short – we couldn’t find it, so we set about making it. It took several months and a few dozen samples before we had a product which represented what we were searching for.”
This kind of entrepreneurial attitude is precisely what inspires us at Florence & Millie, and we are proud to feature such fine craftsmen on the blog. Bonus kudos to Hack & Hue for using all locally sourced materials for their ties.
