A Sam (and David) Hober Tie Appreciation Thread - Page 89

post #1321 of 4904
Awesome, thanks! Looking forward to it!
post #1322 of 4904

Feeling guilty about not having posted photos (bow-tie and grenadine), but it's actually deliberate, not laziness. I can't get any good photos with my iPhone. I'd be underselling them if I posted pictures of them, frankly. Nonetheless, if anyone is desperate for photos of the ties, I will try my very best to indulge that wish. I will however post two very poser-ish shots for you to enjoy, though they're not exactly detailed on the tie. One thing I really have to comment on, however, is that the products are both absolutely amazing. I am so, so happy with my order, especially the bow tie. It's exactly what I wanted, something different but which wouldn't offend traditionalists. David was there throughout my deliberations over whether I wanted it to be X millimetres in height or X + 1, haha. I've never had service like that before (and this isn't my first bespoke product). Truly fantastic.

Right, I made a long post here about how my iPhone is awful and any pictures would be underselling the tie (true), but it hasn't actually posted so I just thought I'd 'man up' as the British say and take one. 1000


Excessively poserish, but just ignore my mirror (and face) and zoom in on the tie.

Just wanted to chime in here and say how impressed I am with my new Sam Hober pocket square. Just arrived yesterday, the silk is of a weight a little more substantial than a typical satin silk - when I want a puffed rumbled look, it holds it's shape far better than any of my other squares. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

There's some fabrics I've been waiting for. I was thinking that it would be a nice feature if the website could send an automatic email when something in your wishlist comes back in stock.

I picked up a 7-fold Hober from Cantabrigian. Despite my dislike of 7-folds, I was very impressed with the tie and proceeded to order a grenadine directly from the site for a Christmas present. On the receipt, I noticed SH was located in Thailand and my first reaction was "what the hell?"

 

Then I read the "About Us" on the website. Wonderful story, and knowing it I think I am likely to order even more from them.

I tried to post pictures here, but it clearly hasn't worked. Ho hum... 

I'll try again another time, but since we're here, obviously everyone here can vouch for David's ties. I feel like that barely needs to be said anymore. However, if anyone was considering a bowtie, just bloody go for it. I absolutely adore mine. David worked with me really carefully to get it just right. One piece of advice I would say is that it really helped me, with measurements, to have an adjustable bowtie lying around to get my collar width just perfect. Of course you could do it other ways, but that seemed the easiest.

I take that back because they've somehow just appeared on my browser. I have to promise at this point that I'm not losing the plot...

Cold War Painter,

I agree with you.

It is simply amazing what software can do.

Aris our Software developer is here in Chiang Mai now visiting from Bangkok.

We are talking about developing a custom made store program.

There are two ways to do the email - one is as you suggest from the wishlist and the other is when you try to order an out of stock item.

In any case the trick to custom software is planning what you need at the start so all ideas are good ones - thank you.

Lyam,

It was a pleasure working with you on your boy tie. I have passed your compliments on to Mary our main bow tie maker - you made her smile.

By the way your photo below the group photo looks great.

You look like a 007 agent on the way to the casino.

Thank you for posting the photos.
