Darn you. I thought I had finished ordering Hobers (for like 3 months). Oh well. At least ties are a less expensive addiction than I imagine watches would be.

It's an amazing tie. I really hope he does something similar in burgundy soon.

How long did shipping take for your package?  I'm anxiously awaiting my first Hober order!

As soon as I receive my order, I'll let you know.  I ordered a Macclesfield #98.

They are nothing like woven ties. They look, as is desired, like printed silk -- flat. The same is true at a distance.

It took exactly thirteen business days from shipping confirmation to delivery.

Below are some average photos of the new ties I just got from David.  One is bitter chocolate piccola and the other is the formal/wedding silk #1, which I will be wearing to my wedding.  It will look amazing against my dark grey suit.  Both are 7-fold, unlined, hand rolled edges.  I could not be happier with the ties, especially the wedding silk.  The photos do not do them justice, they look much better in person.  At the bottom is a Carlo Riva linen pocket square that I will also wear to my wedding.  That photo highlights how excellent the handrolled edges are.  Truly remarkable!

 

Special thanks to Stitches, David and everyone else that gave me suggestions. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

As an aside, an unlined grenadine has a much different feel than a lined one.  It makes it almost a spring/summer tie.  I think a 7-fold unlined grossa would be more substantial in terms of weight, given the open weave of the fabric.

Which did you start with?

What happened to all of David's posts?!

Can someone explain to me the appeal of unlined ties? Is it one of those features that people want because it's uncommon? I have not handled one myself, but I imagine it would be lighter, and I like a heavier feeling tie.

Does anyone have this maroon flower tie: http://www.samhober.com/flower-silk-ties/yellow-gold-sky-blue-and-off-white-flower-on-maroon-silk-tie-31.html

I am curious how "maroon" it is. I want something far removed from red, but it does look very red on my monitor.

I do like the grenadine stripe ties, but are there any plans for grenadine dot ties?

I would only go unlined if the tie is a 7-fold.  The extra silk makes up for the weight lost with the lining removed. 6-fold or less I would always suggest a lining.

 

I have a navy 4-fold, lined grossa and a 7-fold, unlined piccola; the unlined 7-fold is just slightly lighter than the lined 4-fold grossa.
