I have that one (I need to get it some fresh air in the not too distant future), it is a classic and definitely SF-approved!  nod[1].gif

Today's Hober is the magenta diamond weave (3-fold construction).

Burnt Orange Twiller Madder Solid Silk #8 in action. I really can't emphasize enough how much I like this new line of silks.

stitch - those look fabulous. I will have to get my hand on one of those grenadines soon. Will probably start out with a navy though...

yes sirs. bitter chocolate grenadine fina #5.

I think the Fina is more dressy and the grossa more casual.

Macclesfield Silk Tie #84 6-fold with rolled edges, 3.5" width, FIH knot. Worn with white shirt and charcoal suit. As mentioned a few posts prior, these things tie themselves. I just got this suit so I couldn't resist a few photos :)

 

For what it's worth, I'm a tiny dude who can easily wear a 35R; David talked me into the 3.5" width and I couldn't be happier.

While I don't wear ties often, I find this company to be of GREAT value. My torso is quite short compared to my legs (I'm about 5'10" and order 56.5" ties) , and most ties are simply too long. Being able to order a quality tie at ~$85 and get exactly what I want, plus a well made tie that is of high quality is just great. I couldn't be happier with this company and the service they provide. Thank you very much!!

Can't wait for my new ties!!! I bought the grey/silver one just for this suit!

Could some of the more experienced members help me with my next purchase? Since discovering SF, I restarted my tie wardrobe and have purchased 2 quality ties. Both of them are Sam Hober - solid navy grenadine and Macclesfield #84.

 

My goal is to have about 10 or so ties that can be paired with a solid navy suit and a solid charcoal suit (possibly a mid-grey in the future). I rarely need to wear suits. I only need them for weddings, job interviews, and fancy dinners. I suppose in 5-10 years I may need them more regularly for business, but even then I don't anticipate I'd need to wear them much. I work in corporate finance and companies can range from conservative to modern/hip. My company is conservative and the attire is business casual (wool pants, dress shirt, no tie, no jacket).

 

Anyway I was thinking for the next purchase I would get:

 

  • Solid burgundy reppe - Pair with both the navy and charcoal suit for job interviews and weddings.
  • Dark navy/white pindot - Pair with charcoal suit for job interviews and weddings (would possibly consider pairing with navy suit as well)
  • Black grossa grenadine - Mostly for funerals but from what I've seen they can be used in business settings. I personally feel a little unsure about wearing a grenadine for a job interview.

 

I'm just trying to get my essentials for now. So I think I'm covering job interviews, weddings, and funerals. I know that wedding ties are the traditionally official ties for weddings, but considering the fact that 99% of people don't even know what a wedding tie is, I wanted to exclude that from my list. Is this a decent start?

 

I feel that the navy grenadine I purchased earlier doesn't pair well with a navy suit (too monochromatic) and it is also not the best choice for a job interview because of the weave. But if people feel they are ok for job interviews, maybe I could change the burgundy tie to a grenadine? I know this is long :)

Nice proportions on the tie, collar, and lapels. Don't put your hands in your pockets.
