That was this one (not mine): It didn't have to be that exact colour, just a very saturated mid blue, and that's precisely what I got. (Sorry for the long story about such a small detail, but I think it's great that personal wishes like that are met with enthusiasm.)
NOBD, I also think about color quite a bit. At the moment we are working on setting up a silk screen and dyeing workshop and I am planning our collection of colors for next year. We will start with printing contrast edges for linen pocket squares.

Amazing pics NOBD! Live the colors of the tack with that brown. What width did you choose, if you don't mind me asking?

You convinced me to ask relatives for a Hober tie for christmas, aha. Thinking of a bitter chocolate garza grossa, or fina? I have a navy Panta fina so I want to try out a garza. Thinking of a sky blue tack (or robins egg blue), maybe 3.2" for the width. Still mulling over some colors.

David, what are your options for construction? Do you make six/seven folds, unlined? I'm considering a lightly lined six fold, not sure if that will turn out too thick though. Great, great stuff. I covet your whole tie catalogue.

Looking forward to that. I will immediately order a number of those.

That's a garza grossa grenadine, right? how about posting pics of the knot it ties? which color # is it exactly?

BTW, very nice tie. Congratulations!

Thanks. It's a garza fina, #5, Dark Chocolate.


A FIH (with the shirt I happened to wear when the tie arrived):

Finally got off my rear end and ordered 3 ties from David last week: 1 chocolate brown Garza Fina Grenadine, 1 burnt orange Reppe, and 1 forest green Linen.

Cannot believe the incredible value equation presented; $80 Aussie for a well-made bespoke tie is crazily reasonable!

Looking forward to receipt with bated breath...
