A Sam (and David) Hober Tie Appreciation Thread - Page 114

post #1696 of 4912

The forest green cashmere made another appearance around my neck today:

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.

The Silverfox, lovely collection. Really like the first tie especially. Do you recall what category it is in on the website if you don't mind me asking?

It's funny you should say that, as this was my first Sam Hober tie and is probably still my favourite. It really is magnificently beautiful, and it's even more beautiful in real life as the color is a bit warmer than in the pic, as well as being more "alive" when natural light hits it from different angles as it's quite a shiny tie.

It's in the category Pattern Silk Ties, and I believe the code is (was) EPT-6, but unfortunately I got the last one if I recall correctly. I would speculate that this is one that will make a return, but that's just speculation on my part, I'm sure David will have that info. There's a pic on the site, one of the few where they've rolled the tie up and then laid it on it's side so you really see the light play with it, as it does when worn IRL, that really does it justice.

Nice! What collar is that first grenadine grossa? I'm assuming burgundy or dark red?

Thanks. The first grenadine grossa is the dark red. Burgundy is on my to-buy list.

Perfect! Love the color, and I have a dark red grenadine fina on the way.

Any recommendations material-wise for SH ties? My collection has basics, now's the time for experimentation.

I've waiting for a restock of the silk material so that I can have the same tie made...been waiting a while but have it saved in my wishlist. I believe it's under English pattern.

The deep red striped tie is one of the Italian Stripe Silk Ties (either #3 or #7, the dark blue striped tie being the other). The lavender with white and midnight blue striped tie was at one point known as English Striped Silk Tie #39. I tried finding these on the Hober website to confirm but to no avail. Might be worth PMing David to see if he has the silks / is planning to get them back. Closer up picture of the two ties is below:



The red striped tie is pretty close to how it looks IRL, though the picture deprives the lavender stripe tie of some of its richness.

Note that you'll probably have separate duty charges for DHL.
