Looks like a grossa. The one on the right is a knit, not a grenadine.

Thanks aravenel & Cuttingboard. So foerest green grossa it is. In that case, I guess I will get fina for the third tie since I am also trying to get navy grossa.

 

Now burgundy, dark chocolate or bitter chocolate, that is the question...

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.

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)

I have a vague intuition that repp stripes have a tendency to look wider on the body than they actually are. Is there a rule of thumb about ordering those? Should they intentionally be ordered a little less wide than one would normally get?

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.

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?

I don't believe you get to select the size of the repp stripe, it's already woven into the pattern.

He means the width of the tie, not the width of the stripes. :)

? 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.

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.

Bitter chocolate 7-fold piccola on tie Tuesday on the way to the office.

Just 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? biggrin.gif
