I can think of few other brands that are as consistent as Brooklyn’s The Hill-Side. With every new season, the label manages to find yet more ways to build on its already solid collection of ties, pocket squares, bandannas and scarves, keeping the output fresh, but still in-line with the co.’s original concept (not an easy thing to do). The newly released Organic Flax ties, part of H-S’ near flawless SS11 range, are handcrafted in NYC from a 3.5 oz Japanese organic cotton / flax blend. Bright without being flashy, the ties make a great summer accessory, but – thanks to their rock solid construction and understated tones – can be enjoyed long after the season as well. The matching scarf and pocket square are pretty great too.
