Sorry about the delay, but here is the dark red grenadine fina and a couple of her friends.

I'm not sure the colours are 100% spot on though, as these are taken in the bathroom with a strong light. Judging by how both the pink shirt and the blue shirt look almost white, it seems like they're all a bit lighter than in real life.

Oh and by the way these are all 3.85 inches wide and 67/66 inches long (65 for grenadines to compensate for stretching)

Houndstooth that's made up of what looks like silver and burgundy, which looks coppery in real life 3-fold

 




Dark navy english satin, slightly darker IRL 3-fold.


White blue and red very fine check, pretty close to IRL 3-fold



Forest green diamond weave, IRL it's a darker and more pure green, same blazer as both above and below for color comparison. 3-fold


White and black (I think) glen check, 6-fold. Picture is accurate


Dark red grenadine fina, 4-fold, picture is a touch light. Blazer is the same as above, so you can see that the pic is brighter.


White and black english woven pattern, 6-fold, pretty close to real life


White woven dots on midnight blue background, 3-fold, pretty close though perhaps a touch lighter than real life.

 

 

Silverfox, I saw this post and liked the ties so much I ordered every one of them (except the dark red fina). I hope you don't mind. biggrin.gif

Here is a pic of my Macclesfield #102 worn this last week. It is a 6-fold.

Thanks. fistbump.gif

 

I have a number of the Macclesfield in my closet and some more on order. I really like the feel of them. Currently, I have #92, #98 (I don't think this one is available anymore), and #119 along with #102. I am somewhat embarrassed to admit that I have #84, #114, #124 and #167 on order. biggrin.gif I don't have any pics of these but will take some as I wear them. 

 

I have had all of my Macclesfield ties made with 6-fold construction. I like the weight and the knot that it makes.

Here are some pictures of my latest Hober delivery.

 

Madder print #6 (6-fold)

 

Grenadine grossa striped #6 (6-fold)

 

Macclesfield #114 (6-fold, purple w/white dots)

 

Macclesfield #167 (6-fold)

 

English pattern #2 (standard 3-fold)

 

 

I will try and take a pic of each when I wear them for the first time.

Great ties Panther! I'm not usually a fan of Madders but I like the first one. I like the green, orange and blue combo.

Madder print #6 is stunning. I could never wear it myself, but the inner person inside my screams to wear it. I can certainly picture it being toned down fairly easy with the right shirt/jacket. I finally put in an order for two ties myself. I don't wear them very often but it'll be nice to have them when they are needed..

Thanks M. Charles.  All the ties are 3 3/8 inches wide (just 'cause I can!).  The Macclesfield #102 is one of my favorities as well.

Really hoping my order of three Hober ties shows up today! I'm already anxious to place another order and I haven't even handled a Hober tie yet. This thread has me convinced I won't be disappointed, though. Still, I'd like to make sure I'm happy with the measurements and construction options before I finalize my next selections.

Funny, this is basically the exact same situation I am in. I ordered my first set of ties from David a couple of weeks ago, and they should be arriving soon. I'm just trying to hold back on buying anything else until the first order comes in!
