Thank you very much! They look a tad too shiny for my taste to be honest, would love for them to be mixed with some wool, or maybe hopsack quality. I'll consider it though, the tie itself looks to be great quality!

I have the English plaid #8 and can attest that it isn't shiny. It's quite lovely, actually. (No pictures of it in action, though.)

Powder Blue Grenadine Fina Silk Tie #15
 
I only own a navy suit, charcoal suit, brown plaid jacket, and navy blazer so my tie selection is pretty limited. I'm most excited about the Charcoal Gray/Silver Grenadine. I could have really used that one two weekends ago.

Great choices. I have the gray/silver. It is an awesome tie. I'm fortunate somewhat in that no one I work with has enough understanding of classic menswear to even know what the phrase "wedding tie" means. biggrin.gif

Just received my first Hober tie. Got the dark blue grossa as the navy was sold out, and it really looks amazing!

Note: The picture looks like royal blue, but IRL its a drop darker.

I have that in fina .. it is a fair bit lighter than I was expecting but a lovely colour nonetheless.

What were the details on this tie? Looks great. Maybe a pic of the knot?

David can make the tie wider at the knot, so that you can achieve a nice knot without having to tie a double four-in-hand.  This may also necessitate reducing the length.  Something to consider, unless you simply prefer the double to the single FIH.

Today's Hober is the burgundy grenadine fina (6-fold construction).  Happy Monday to all!

On some ties I like the double FIH. Is that against the rules or anything? I like how being able to (barely) see the wraparound underneath gives it a little something extra.. If done right, which can be difficult.

I wear double four-in-the-hands with a smile on my face and a song in my heart if that helps. Others are fundamentally against them.

I'm going to pull a Stitch and say I'm doing it anyways.

Stitch; wearing a tie knot commonly disapproved of, alongside a NFG smile.

Although I personally prefer the regular four-in-hand, I wouldn't say the double FIH is commonly disapproved of. On the contrary: it seems the double is "SF approved" from what I gather. smile.gif

On a different note, anyone care to share pics of the midnight blue grenadine fina #8? I'm having a hard time waiting for the navy to be restocked... tempted to just go for the midnight blue instead. laugh.gif

I do not own the burgundy prometeo, but judging by that picture, it does seem significantly lighter than the burgundy fina. The website pictures indicate this as well. Still, a nice looking color.

I am anxiously awaiting the new striped grenadines as well as the restocks that David said are due at the end of June. I will promptly be placing my next order then, which will include my first 7-fold: unlined/untipped navy fina. nod[1].gif

 

I cannot emphasize enough the necessity of ordering fabric swatches from David.  No doubts whatsoever about what you are getting and I have found pictures to be several shades darker/lighter for grenadines in particular.
