You’ve got your Cavendish, four-in-hand, and half-Windsor with dimple.
Yet Casual Friday endures.
Add some work ethic to your wardrobe with The Hill-Side, a New York City label making handkerchiefs, pocket squares, and neckties from the selvage fabrics of traditional American workwear.
Run by the brothers Corsillo, one of whom sharpened his fabric shears at utility-driven label Tretorn, the new label sources 100 percent cotton, chambray, and muslin and turns them into gentlemanly accessories (that happen to look awesome on women).
Slender strips of hearty indigo denim, waxed canvas, and chino are durable, handsome, and sexy as hell (no cravats about it).
Tie one on every day of the week.
Available at Smith + Butler, 225 Smith Street, at Butler Street, Carroll Gardens (917-977-1847 or smithbutler.com); Blue in Green, 8 Greene Street, between Grand and Canal Streets (212-680-0555 or blueingreensoho.com). To see styles, go to thehill-side.com.
