The one you're leaning toward is stunning IMO. The other one is okay, but to me there's no comparison. #102 all the way.

I misspoke, I meant lt. grey, not navy.

I like option 1

I think you guys are correct...I don't normally like Macclesfield ties but this is a beautiful tie.

In case it helps, here's a shot of #84 in real life:

Thanks Mr. Pink! How long is your tie?
post #1507 of 5511
Probably 59 or 57 ". I'm not wearing it today. That's an old picture. Why do you ask?
post #1508 of 5511
I have the #102 tie (navy) in a four fold. I wear the hell out of it.

Just curious because I'm trying to decide between a length of 57 or 59 inches.

I ordered the 102 in four fold with my initials on the keeper. This will be a great tie for spring with a blue or lavender shirt.

Pics? I'd like to see what that looks like. It sounds good.

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 know im a bit late here. construction sounds great, i prefer the top tie, and i love macclesfields. enjoy!

I am a big Macclesfield collector, and I own both the 102 and the 84. I wear the former with grey suits and the latter with navy suits, as I prefer a bit of contrast between suit and tie. But both are very versatile. Hard to go wrong either way.

I find the 84 just a tiny bit more sophisticated and less common, but perhaps at an equally slight disadvantage in versatility.

Is the 84 a brown or an olive? I can't tell on my screen.

From the Hober website: "Sky blue, lavender & yellow gold on midnight blue."

Looking forward to my first Hober Macclesfield: #78, although it's perhaps not quite as exciting as the ones posted above. wink.gif
