Exchanging emails, Mr. Hober and I discussed my height (6'3"), neck size (18 1/2"), preferred knot (four-in-hand), and the like. I asked for the tie to taper less from the widest point, which I request to be 3 1/2", so they're a touch wider where they'll knot up. Magician that he is, Mr. Hober can figure out exactly where on the tie that is.

He really is a pleasure to deal with. He's very patient and knowledgeable, and never makes you feel like you're inconveniencing him. Shoot him a PM or an email and he'll help you out.

I'm having a difficult time choosing between the midnight blue and dark navy.

That's my tie. It's a very nice colour. More towards the darker spectrum (darker than navy.) Very versatile tie!

Just ordered my fourth Hober grenadine and some swatch sets for my anticipated 5th through 8th.

 

The three I have so far are amazing!

I just made my first SH tie order!

 

I ordered four different colors (Navy,Forrest, Burgundy, Purple) ties.  They were all a different solid grenadine weave.  I ordered a large selection of swatches ahead of time so I could actually see and decide on which fabrics I wanted.  I highly recommend this as when I went to choose the fabrics on the computer for the orders some of them varied quite a bit compared to the labeled swatch I had in hand (others were very close in color).  

 

I also had them made to be thinner than what the site recommended.  The site said the standard is a 3.75in width.  That seems quite wide for me as none of my ties are even close to that wide.  I went for 8cm (3.2in) width which is more in line with most of the ties I wear.  I hope I don't regret it...

 

I'll be sure to post when they arrive.

The light's all wrong for photos, but just took delivery of two new ties for winter: black challis wool and midnight blue cashmere.

^ Get that light right for the pics -- especially of the two side by side! Would be great to see.

Argh. I was waiting for my new credit card to arrive (in 2-3 days) to order a tie made from this cloth, and now it's out of stock (yesterday there was enough for "2 item(s)") frown.gif

 

I hope it's available again soon....

^ David said that fabric will be restocked. FWIW, I ordered that cloth in a bow before thanksgiving-it appeared to be in stock until david confirmed it wasn't.

I have it in navy which is also very nice

Love that fabric, also have my eye on a tie made from it...

Just ordered my first two ties from sam hober, a dark navy satin and a ligh-coppery macclesfield houndstooth pattern.

I can't speak to the quality until I receive the goods, but I can chime in and agree with the numerous praises of David's patience and excellent customer service.

Eagerly awaiting the ties, and will add pictures and comments when they arrive.
