3.75". I just received 4 other ties in this order as well, will post pics as I wear them over the next week or so. Very happy with all of my new Hobers, this is the beginning of a great but expensive new hobby...

Three new grenadines arrived today. Here is the current set:

 

 

 

Left to right: Black (grossa), Navy (fina), Dark Navy (fina), Dark Chocolate (fina), Bitter Chocolate (fina).

 

I had the dark chocolate and navy. The bitter chocolate, dark navy, and black are new. The dark navy order was a tactical error. The swatch set showed what I believed to be a much greater contrast between navy and dark navy. This picture exaggerates the difference between them. Sitting here with them in front of me, I can't tell which is which without looking at the tags on the back (the new set uses newer tags). There is definitely no good reason to have both. Oops.

One can never have too many navy grenadines, especially when of Hober quality. There is absolutely good reason to have both. Nice ties. smile.gif

Now you can wear one out to dinners without fear of ruining it through spilling sauce or wine on it! If the unthinkable does happen, astonish your table by nonchalently removing the tie and throwing it away before pulling out your second navy Sam Hober and knotting it there and then. If it's a business dinner - guaranteed promotion right there.

To no one's surprise, David has made a generous offer to me to replace my "duplicative" navy tie with another of my choice. And another forum member and I have split the windfall such that the duplicative tie will find a loving new home. I offered to make David the recipient of the funds for sending the tie to the other forum member, but he politely declined. I have dealt with many companies that provide top rate customer service, but it would be impossible to beat Sam Hober.

Extremely generous. Thanks for sharing

You should go through and name the styles/colours for us playing at home. Some lovely ties, great collection.

first pic, macclesfield's first:

186

183 (pic does no justice to the tie. its a gorgeous orange. the tip in the shadow is nearer the richness than the rest which is washed out)

121 (its really a straight dark red/burgundy without the purplish hue in the pic)

136 (one of my top 5 favorites, the chocolate brown ground is so saturated)

104 (very CBD, the dark green ground is not very green--almost gray, works well for a sober business meeting with a navy suit.  just enough contrast to avoid security uniform look)

the other two are dark burnt orange twill which I don't see on the site anymore (but I have the burnt orange madder swatch and frankly I think its even better than the tie I already have ffffuuuu.gif.  and last midnight blue linen

 

second pic all grenadines:

brick prometeo (nice off red/rusty hue)

dark blue grossa

dark chocolate fina (another favorite)

navy grossa

olive grossa

dark red grossa

charcoal/gray grossa

 

third pic all challis which is awesome. a soft, pliable wool with subtle texture and the perfect weight interlining so a FIH ties the same knot as a silk tie:

navy

burnt orange

navy neat

dark red

forest green (my favorite green tie)

 

4th pic probably has the go-to ties (except the silver linen that I through in at the last second.  awesome tie, but not worn as much.  hope David gets more linen in, their awesome and just like the challis, i wonder if he pairs the weight of the tie material to the interlining so that the thickness remains roughly the same across materials. cause I get the same knot no matter what tie I wear)

 

macclesfield's except the stripe:

don't see the first one on the site anymore and I don't remember the number but macclesfield navy neat

Atkinson's royal signals (sheesh I love this one. the irish poplin is amazing. probably gonna get some more of these)

178 (another favorite)

105 (love this one too, the light blue and white pattern pops off the charcoal ground)

75 (love this one too)

20 (also love this one, great with really dark suits, but is not as light blue as in the photo--more mid-blue)

87 (maybe the most go-to one I have for CBD moments.  the ground is super dark, so it works with any gray or lighter than indigo navy suit easily providing contrast and the neat pattern is subtle)

 

If I can conceal my addiction from my wife, more will be coming.mwink[1].gif
