Last month, ordered 4 or 5 (mixture of finas and grossas) untipped 6 folds.

Thanks

Although David already replied, I thought I'd add that I recently arranged for delivery to the Bangkok hotel where I was staying and had no problem with delivery.

Just saying - this is one of the best and most fulfilling threads I have seen come from MC in a very long time.

Haven't/hadn't considered that. I only asked whether rolled edges were possible with the fabric, because I wanted those. Other than that, I didn't think about the construction, I just wanted a good one for the grenadine. A 3-fold would have been fine, but David said a 4-fold would be a bit stronger/better, so I went for that.

NOBD, Your tie is finished and beautiful. Normally, untipped ties have the interlining end slightly above the tipping area in a straight line - we did something interesting with your tie. We made sort of an upside down V with the wool interlining for a perfect fit. It is a bit hard to describe with words so I took a photo and will try to post it tomorrow. Krakatoa, Are you east of Java? I could not resist... Yes, I remember your order all worked well with your traveling schedule. The local Thai EMS express mail actually works very well. And as long as the hotel has a good front desk then it does work well for local pickups. Nhannon, Grenadines are normally tipped. ThinkDerm, 4-fold grenadines are good for durability as the even number of folds on the back make for a stronger tie. If you are gentle with your ties 3-folds are fine. Simon Avram, \t Thank you for your kind words. I look forward to seeing pictures of your work. Gene Parmesan, I am very sorry that we did not have the designs that you wanted. Some things such as our grenadines are part of our permanent collection and will come back quickly. Andrew Rogers, Thank you for your wonderful comments. Don't worry about our production times - sleep is over rated - we just work 7 days a week when we are very busy. Lots of ordering out for pizza etc and we have fun with our staff. CDFS, For weddings and special events we can usually make an order in 2 days. Bangkok to Amsterdam recently has taken about 10 days ($11) via registered airmail. EMS (which costs more) Is probably around 5 days and has tracking. So I can say probably but we make no promises on the speed of the mail - actually we never make delivery promises only best estimates. John152, Go for a classic reppe weave stripe. Vesses, Your new photo looks great with the ties all spread out.

That sounds great, David. And I even think I know what you mean (non-tie expert that I am). Looking forward to seeing the photo, and more importantly: receiving and wearing the tie!

No, east of Leamington...(inside joke for Monty Python fans)

I received 3 more ties from David today. A navy grenadine fina silk, a greenish gold grenadine fina silk, and an Atkinson striped poplin #46. I received 5 from him last week. Beautiful ties all of them. I have nine more that are in various stages of production/shipping, bringing my Hober total to 61, and three more in the cart trying to decide to pull the trigger on them.

I have a bad addiction and must stop. Does anyone know where I can go for tie rehab?

NOBD, Your tie is on its way and here are some photos of the construction process: Here your Dark Chocolate Grenadine Garza Fina Tie has been folded, pinned and partially sewn: A better photo of the area where tipping usually is; note what I was trying to explain earlier - the wool interlining is perfectly fitted. Normally the interlining simply has a flat finish above the tipping area. The wool is naturally a lighter color so we have hand dyed the wool at our workshop, actually outside in the garden. Here you can see the rolled edges and finished tie: Large closeup photos of Grenadine Garza Grossa & Fina weaves are here: http://www.samhober.com/grenadinesilks/grenadine.htm

What is the best way to wear a tie like this?:



Should the tip cover the belt so the shirt doesn't show through?

Be sure to flip it around when you tie it, so the keeper ends up facing backwards (i.e. toward your tummy)

The tip should always cover the belt...
