Luxire, have the larger buttons come in yet? I am getting close to placing a second order and would like to have those in before I do. BTW, the current buttons are holding up very well for me. I am pleased with the quality.
Lots of big guys here.
I am 6'7". David recommended 66" in grenadine grossa. I insisted on 68" wanting to make sure it was long enough. It is borderline too long. 66" would have been better. But in the future I will stick with 68" for a non-grenadine tie where I want the option of four in hand or half-windsor. David also recommended 4" width and that is perfect.
Moral of the story is to ask David and trust his recommendations.
I don't think that is an appropriate request. Ebay listings are fully public and subject to discussion. I appreciate hohneokc's effort to bring us his discovery. It definitely added to the conversation and purpose of this thread.
I would say that the determining factor would be how big you are and what style you like. I got my first Hober right before Xmas. I am 6'7" with a 54" chest and long torso. After consulting with David, I went with 68" length and 4" width (Midnight Blue Grenadine Grossa). David advised going a bit shorter as grenadine stretches. After getting the tie, I can see how David was right and I should have gone a bit shorter. My fault but not a big deal. The width is...
Your Jeffersons have definitely darkened, but they also started a different color from the Daltons. I am not sure why but they are a darkest AE walnuts in my closet.
I would start with Renovateur. A couple of heavy coats left to dry for a few minutes, followed by heavy buffing and no polish would be my suggestion.
