A Sam (and David) Hober Tie Appreciation Thread - Page 92

post #1366 of 5363

I think he wants to know if you got the same construction on the grenadines as you did for that print?  ie. unlined, untipped, handrolled edges?

post #1367 of 5363
Ah yeah I misread that. No, I got the grenadines with the standard options (four-fold, lined, etc.). I should also note that the Macclesfield is lined...I prefer the drape of a lined tie.

^ Many thanks for the information! I think I still prefer the drape of unlined 6- or 7-folds but that is good to know.

The swatch sets definitely have me planning my next order.

 

Your post pushed me over the edge.  I picked up this same print along with a navy pindot and forest green grenadine.  I'll post pictures as soon as I receive my haul!

 

David was insanely prompt with his replies over the last few days.  I'm still amazed at his service and helpfulness.  I'll be ordering additional ties in the near future!

The level of talent that we have found in our new staff is amazing. Typically the women have been sewing since they were little girls plus they have gone to a vocational college to study pattern making etc.. And the men who do our cutting and other misc jobs do a great job.
This year we plan to add many more fabrics.
Happy New Year to everyone!

sounds lovely.

a happy new year to you, as well. and may this coming year be a great one for hober.

When I was searching for pictures of Hober ties, I found this thread was a great resource, but I thought it might be useful to see most of the pictures in one place. So I compiled this Board on Pinterest. Only a few are labeled completely, and several won't pin correctly, but I think it makes for nice viewing.

I will echo Stitches - happy New Year to David and Hober wearers everywhere.

I've been thinking for a while that Hober combines the strengths of different locations & cultures without ripping anyone off. Globalization done right.

Please do. I placed the navy pindot in my cart at least a half dozen times during my first order, so it will probably be in my next order.

Hello, I am about to purchase 3 of David's ties and I just have a few questions, if someone wouldn't mind answering.  I will be buying 2 Grenadine ties; 1 Dark Navy and 1 Bitter Chocolate. However, I am still undecided as to whether I should get the Grenadine Fina or the Piccola Grenadine.  Does anyone have a suggestion, or wouldn't mind explaining why someone would pick one over the other?  

 

Lastly, the reason I am buying from him, besides the great reputation, is that I can get the 61" tie length that I need as I am 6'4".  I haven't owned any extra long ties and the standard ties I own now are 3.25in in width.  I didn't know if increasing the length means I should change the width? Is 3.25" acceptable on a 61" tie?  Sorry for the long post and thanks in advance!

I would say that the determining factor would be how big you are and what style you like.

 

I got my first Hober right before Xmas.  I am 6'7" with a 54" chest and long torso.  After consulting with David, I went with 68" length and 4" width (Midnight Blue Grenadine Grossa).  David advised going a bit shorter as grenadine stretches.  After getting the tie, I can see how David was right and I should have gone a bit shorter.  My fault but not a big deal.  The width is perfect for my tastes.  The tie is absolutely gorgeous.

 

I also ordered several swatch sets and will be making additional orders soon.

 

Email David your measurements and concerns.  He will tale care of you.  He is a great professional.

As a reference, the ties I posted above are 60" long and 3.5" wide.

Thanks for the advice, I probably should have been more specific about my build.  I am 6'4" 175lb and fairly thin, about a 40" chest.  Also, I have been in contact with David and he has been great, I just didn't want to bog him down with e-mails. He also told me to go a bit shorter on the grenadine, which I intend to do.
