Jeromestyle,I have a photo of a formal ascot that we made (without pleats) and in August I hope to have a photo of an informal ascot (with pleats). We also make ascot squares (neckerchiefs) which look just like a pocket square but bigger. You can send me your email address and I will be happy to email a photo.For formal ascots we often use formal/wedding silks woven in England. For informal ascots printed silks are nice, and for ascot squares we use Tahi silk or...
Jeromestyle,Good questions - one important thng to consider is your collar size. When we make ascots (only custom made ones) we like to take into consideration neck size and collar width.
Threadbearer,Well said.Madder ties are typically thought of as having traditional paisley designs but can have other designs.The Madder finish that was used for many years in England has not been used in a long time - perhaps 10 years? Due to environmental laws.Natural dyes are not typically used in madder silks although salesmen may tell you something else.Natural madder dye can have various shades depending how the root is treated.

To be safe use a press cloth to prevent a glossy shine from developing. Patterned fabric should be ironed on the reverse side.For deep wrinkles a gentle steam from a steam iron or steamer can be used on the reverse side before ironing. Also, be very careful when steaming pocket squares as occasionally...
Daniel, You should not have a snag on a new tie. I am completely certain that you will not have one with the tie that you ordered from us as each tie that we sell is custom made by us with multiple levels of quality control. This is one of the differences between our custom made ties and most others.which typically are not custom made. With that said Kent is a good man who cares about his customers - send him an email.

Besides the SF fascination with photographing folds, does the tie actually tie a better knot? Is a 6- or 7-fold tie typically thicker or thinner than a lined 3-fold? Which holds up better/longer. Trying to figure this out before I place my next Hober order. With a custom made tie there will be little or...

To New York it takes on average 2 weeks for airmail - which we use for swatches. 3 weeks for registered airmail which we use for orders 1 week for express mail (EMS) with tracking Note that all times are on average...
