Just found the Hober appreciation thread. Thanks for pointing it out.
Wonderful stuff. Maybe save me from ordering too many swatch sets.
Pinkpanther - which sets do you own?
I was rhinking Grossa and Prometeo....at first
One more question, Gents.
Of our basic core ties which isnt exactly defined which go well with a white shirt? The pictures here make the silver/grey and burgundy look good with a white shirt. What other colors go well with white?
It most of the basic ties go well with light blue. At times I wish I had studied basic color theory so I had a better sense of the color palette combinations. But I must confess this stuff is indeed fun.
I want to order a burgundy grenadine from Hober but am a bit worried about how dark their burgundies are versus their silk burgundies.
Flyswatter - is that burgundy pindot the "White On Burgundy Printed Dot Silk Tie #3" pictured below? I like that shade of burgundy very much and in your picture is looks a bit lighter than the Hober picture I pasted below.
It seems like Mr. Hober's pictures tend to be a bit darker than the ties may actually be?
Couple questions on Howard's trousers, too.
Any idea on their rise? I am around a 36" waist and need about a 9.5" rise. The 11"+ rises just dont work.
Also, any sense of how slim the cut is? I have broad thighs which can be a challenge. Paul Stuart works but Black Fleece doesnt.
Lastly, how does their quality compare with say Paul Stuart, Black Fleece....?
Could I trouble some with a couple of questions about Howard's sweater?
I am looking at his lambswool sweaters which look nice in the pictures.
What is their quality say versus Brooks Brothers?
How does their sizing run? For reference a Brooks Brothers Large is way too long in the sleeves for me while a J. Lindeberg large works about right.
I actually wore it yesterday with a navy blue flannel suit, light blue shirt and grey merino sweater.
I think it worked well.
Pinkpanther, I think your picture better captures its color than the one on the Hober site.
For the love of all that is sacred, How do you get that dimple??!
Archibaldleach (and others),
You mentioned that a grey/silver grenadine tie is very useful. I recently ordered this one from Sam Hober. It arrive and I like it but it seems a bit too light.
Is this what you have in mind by grey/silver grenadine?
