Thanx. Beutiful!

I recently ordered four grenadines, bringing my Hober tie total to seven:
  • navy fina
  • forest green fina
  • bitter chocolate piccola
  • dark purple piccola
  • black grossa
  • dark navy grossa
  • burgundy grossa

My hope is to be able to wear a Hober tie everyday eventually. Next up will be some Macclesfields.

Unfortunately I stained the navy fina recently. I wanted to send it to Tie Crafters, but that wasn't an option with their four-tie minimum, so it's at Rave Fabricare right now. I'm hoping they can work some magic.

Thanks, David, for making such great ties.

I'm at five Hobers. Talking with David about a sixth, something he's described as a bit of an experiment (unlined four fold piccola). Now that somebody has mentioned it, I'll have to get a 7th so as to have one every day of the week.
 

I am really, really happy that Panta doesn't offer more colors in their grenadines. Hober and Panta provide two different types of ties...but if they didn't...well...hard choices would have to be made.

 

EDIT: seriously...David is amazing to work with.

If David offered tussah and shantung, I'd be putting his kids through college.

+1. David, any chance of offering shantungs for this summer? You'd likely have a lot of takers...

STITCHY (if you say his name in all caps, he appears, right?)

 

As the forum's greatest Hober champion (though the entire forum pretty much reps his goods at this point), what say you to Hober shantung?

 

(though perhaps Hober already accounts for enough tie awesomeness and does not need to expand...)

Secret custom knit ties? I'm interested.

We used to offer Thai silks with a rough texture and lots of slubs but found that they were not in demand so we started weaving smoother Thai silk.
We could offer rough Thai and perhaps some Italian silk again and perhaps we should maybe in stripes...
I shall think about it.

David, I would prefer solid color shantung/tussah ties (the slubbier the better). I hope you'll start making those because I would buy at least brown and navy ones instantly.

David,

I'm in for a few "shantung/tussah ties (the slubbier the better)."

As a matter of terminology for the uninitiated (ie. me): what is exactly the difference between tussah and shantung?

I think most people are thinking of this:
