A Sam (and David) Hober Tie Appreciation Thread - Page 100

post #1486 of 5210

For anyone on the taller side, I found a nice red garza fina on ebay today - http://www.ebay.com/itm/RARE-Sam-Hober-HANDMADE-Grenadine-Garza-Fina-Cherry-Red-Solid-Silk-Mens-Tie-NR-/310606168856?pt=US_Mens_Ties&hash=item4851920318

A few more grenadines on the way. I've had the dark chocolate and navy grenadines (finas) for a year and it was time to add the bitter chocolate (fina), dark navy (fina), and black (grossa).

 

I'll get some color corrected photos up of the group of them when they arrive.

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?

Not together, but close enough. These ties are pretty old, from an age before grenadine came in different sizes. Note, the burgundy is not nearly as purplish as it appears in the photo.

- 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

I've got the dark red fina, and planning on getting the dark navy fina too for that matter. (have a navy grosso, but it's a touch too light for some of my suits)
I'm not sure if I have a pic yet of it, if I do I'll slap it up here, if I don't I'll take one tonight.

It's a remarkable tie though, always forms a beautiful graceful knot (that really holds too), and pretty much automatically gives me a double dimple no matter how I tie it and regardless of whether I try or not.

Is the dark red similar to the burgundy?

Gentlemen,

I'm about to order my first Macclesfield #102 and I'm curious what construction you guys would suggest? I'm thinking 6-fold lined, 9cm wide and 57 inches long. My other Hober ties are grenadine grossa, 4-fold lined, 9cm wide and 57 inches in length.

Can't go wrong with that!  Although, his four folds are more than substantial.

Yes, my current four folds are perfect size and weight.

+1. While I am somewhat curious to try the 6 fold at some point, the 4 folds already tie a great knot and look fantastic. Why mess with success, or something like that.

I have a 6 fold wedding tie, a 6 fold grenadine, and a 3 fold macclesfield.  The 6 fold wedding tie has an unbeatable drape, but in my opinion is probably a touch too intense for every-day wear.  My 6 fold grenadine and 3 fold macclesfield are both wonderful.  I think in the future I will probably stick with 4 folds grenadines (ordered a navy and a forest green just the other day), and 3 folds for everything else- even the 3 folds have great knots.

im sure youll get a plethora of opinions...its just a matter of taste. I personally prefer the fina over the grossa though.

I, too, prefer the fina, though I might be biased by the fact that I'm wearing my burgandy fina today.

Latest order has shipped. Waiting on a green pin dot on burgundy, magenta grenadine grossa and navy grenadine grossa with bated breath. Just ordered the grenadine grossa solid, grenadine grossa stripe and linen tie swatch sets. God help me.

Need help trying to decide which Macclesfield tie to buy for spring...which do you prefer?

1. Macclesfield Silk Tie #102? I'm leaning toward this one because the lavender, white and sky blue flowers would look great with a light brown or lt. grey suit; or



2. Macclesfield Silk Tie #84?

I personally don't like navy-based ties with navy suits. That is why I got one of the reddish burgundy Macclesfield ties. I like the first tie better by a small margin.
