"Science has not yet taught us if madness is or is not the sublimity of the intelligence."
Edgar Allan Poe
Think I'll vote yes and go even further mad.
The reppe is awesome and the twill is awesomer. Seriously. I just got my green madder twill. The pattern of the weave is similar, small diagonal lines, though on my ties they are at different angles. And both have a similar sheen. The real difference is the feel and the drape. The twill is softer and less stiff. The drape is amazing. The three fold twill feels like a much thicker tie. I'll work on some pictures, but the difference seems to be more in the feel than the look. I really like the reppe ties, but I love the madder twill.
Haha, is there any Hober you don't own?
Indeed I missed that picture, it looks brilliant. Thanks for the response - I was after a chunky woven tie like that and was wondering if I needed to go up from a 3-fold to achieve it. This looks like just the ticket.
Thanks! As soon as my bonus and/or tax rebate arrive it's order 'o' clock!
