The powder blue and brown on midnight blue striped grenadine and the maroon pin dot.  If I like them, I think the bitter chocolate grenadine is next on my radar.

Great timing.  I received my ties shortly after you responded...exactly thirteen business days from shipping confirmation as well.  I'm really impressed with the quality.

Hi Levi,

I just did a little housekeeping - 95% of my posts are still there. Thank you for wondering.

For color/fabric questions that someone wants me to reply to please email customerservice@samhober.com as I don't always see SF posts or PMs and like to answer quickly and and in as much detail as needed.

For tie making & construction questions in general please post and I will respond online in this thread.

Photographs can be helpful but I think videos are more interactive and better for explaining tie constructions so down the road I will try to start making videos. The videos will not be designed to teach tie making but to explain construction and the results of unlined ties etc..

Gonna buy a couple ties but I'm fairly tall at 6 ft 6 in, would probably get the 65in tie? I have questions on the width then and will the knot then have a good thickness. Anyone have any ideas of what options i should consider. What fold is best etc I'm bait lost.

Talk to David. He'll be able to easily address your concerns.

I'm not 6'6", but I have a large neck and absurdly long torso. As a result, I ordered 65" ties. I received them a couple of days ago and wore the Maccleafield today. I'm ecstatic with the quality and craftsmanship so far.

 

I went with 3.5 inch and three fold with the remaining standard options. I'm really pleased. My grenadines were 63" and four fold in accord with David's advice. I'd follow the advice on his web page for determining tie length. It worked perfectly for me. I'd also stick with standard options for your first order and then begin experimenting. That's my plan!

i'm 6'7' and go for a 63' tie. I have a long torso, which should also be taken into consideration. I'm not skinny, so I also opt for a 3.75' width.

Lots of big guys here.

 

I am 6'7".  David recommended 66" in grenadine grossa.  I insisted on 68" wanting to make sure it was long enough.  It is borderline too long.  66" would have been better.  But in the future I will stick with 68" for a non-grenadine tie where I want the option of four in hand or half-windsor.  David also recommended 4" width and that is perfect.

 

Moral of the story is to ask David and trust his recommendations.

samhober.com appears to be down; hope it's temporary. Want another grenadine.

 

+1 for shantungs. Lust for Drake's but can't justify the price.

Truth; Mr. Hober knows his craft.

I'm 6'4" or so, and have an 18 1/2" neck, but wear all my suits with braces, meaning my pants are quite a bit higher than average. I get all my ties 59" long, and they work great. The skinny end is typically only a couple inches shorter than the wide end.
post #1496 of 5208
My current Hober lineup:

4-fold grenadine grossas in navy, coral, and purple (last two hand rolled, untipped)
7-fold unlined satin in dark brown
6-fold satin in forest green
4 squares (Thai printed, Sangdao Plaid, Macclesfield Printed, and White Belgian Linen)

Will soon be adding a grenadine in black, the gold on burgundy pin dots, and a couple of squares. David's craftsmanship is excellent; his recommended lengths have been spot on, the construction is amazing, and for whatever reason the tie knot comes out perfect every time (it's certainly not the operator). But for all that, his customer service and courtesy are even better. Handwritten thank you notes accompany the purchase, along with guides to care for your tie/square.

Really a brilliant production all the way around and a treasure for this forum.

I'd love a grenadine with larger dots. Sort of like this, only higher quality: http://www.ctshirts.com/Hicks-navy-grenadine-small-white-spot-handmade-tie?q=usddefault|grenadine|TH577NAV|||||||||||||

and in various colors.

Also, if you all haven't seen the 7 fold tie video they just made: http://www.samhober.com/videos.html

 

Truly impressive.I now have an even greater appreciation for my Hober ties, despite them not being 7 folds, after seeing this.

Has anyone had the Macclesfield Silk #119 or #121 made up and if so, do you have a picture you'd like to share?
