Any of the three would be fine. I have the burgundy and bitter chocolate and they're almost interchangeable. Both are classics. Both look great with blue-based shirts. The bitter chocolate might be 3% more sophisticated.post #1475 of 65632/13/13 at 6:10pm
Looks like grossa.
Bitter chocolate has a lot of green in it; it looks more brown on the website. Still a great color. However, I'd go burgundy or dark chocolate over that (and I'd even venture that dark chocolate might be a little better for grossa and burgundy for picolla, but that's my preference)post #1476 of 65632/13/13 at 6:13pmpost #1477 of 65632/13/13 at 6:55pmpost #1478 of 65632/13/13 at 7:00pmQuote:
By any chance, can you post the picture of burgundy and bitter chocolate together? From what I have seen on this thread colors tend to look slightly different from the website. It might be just due to lighting, but extra pictures always helps.Quote:Originally Posted by Claghorn

Thanks Claghorn. I'll take a note on that. Yeah, I am thinking of just getting my third tie as grossa too instead of fina.
Yeah, I have pinned those on my Pinterest. Btw are these both grossa?post #1479 of 65632/13/13 at 7:02pmpost #1480 of 65632/13/13 at 7:23pmpost #1481 of 65632/13/13 at 7:25pmQuote:
? No I meant that I liked the photo so I pinned it to my Pinterest album. And I was just curious whether both ties are grenadine grossa. I'm not going to get them as stripe.post #1482 of 65632/13/13 at 7:27pm
Major reading comprehension fail here so let me get you up to speed:
strangedream: They are both grossa gauze ties.
Cuttingboard: I mean the width of the tie and the perceived width of it as caused by the illusion of the stripes bisecting the body.
Patrick R: You win the $100,000 Pyramid.
My question still stands.....

You're thinking too hard. If you like to wear a 3.5" tie (like myself), then order a 3.5" repp stripe tie.
The rule of thumb is order the Hober tie and wear the Hober tie.post #1484 of 65632/19/13 at 5:31ampost #1485 of 65632/20/13 at 1:37pmJust emailed David about placing my first order for some Hober ties! I've decided on the following:
- Dark Navy Grenadine Fina: lined four fold, self-tipped
- Dark Red Grenadine Fina: lined four fold, self-tipped
- White Pindots on Dark Navy: lined four fold, untipped, hand-rolled edges
Can't wait to get them. Anyone with the above ties care to share some pics in the wild to whet my appetite while I wait on my order?
