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

post #1622 of 4878
Thanks Mr. Pink! How long is your tie?
post #1623 of 4878
Probably 59 or 57 ". I'm not wearing it today. That's an old picture. Why do you ask?
post #1624 of 4878
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

Yep, I'm right there with ya. A navy with with pindots is one of my favorite ties. I think the spacing of the dots is perfect on the Hober #78, and a lined 4-fold, untipped with hand rolled edges? Hard to beat!

we are in agreement.
post #1635 of 4878
FWIW, most of my ties are 59" and I'm 6' even. Most of my suit pants are high waisted and 59" is the longest that will work with them but still works with regular pants. For these, I went with 3 fold, untipped, hand rolled edges.
