Thanks! I saw your photo, it looked great. I just figured that as long as I was taking photos I'd add one more for the curious.

Your photo of #121 helped me decide to pull the trigger. Thanks for posting it! "Carbon Black" is how it's described on David's site. So far, it just looks like a clean black to me, but I'll take a look in some different light. It's pretty matte, which might be part of the source of the "carbon" description.

So that's where the last regimental #3 went eh? Had to change my order, but I actually found another that I'm hoping I will like just as much, if not more. The #3 looks good....

Thanks! And sorry (but only sort of smile.gif). No doubt the alternative will also be nice.

Got one of those emails a few days ago, but standard shipping makes for rough wait times.

Got the email early this morning. DHL shipping. tounge.gif

On another note, I'm getting excited for the new striped grenadines and restocks!

Just received my plum Sangdao Thai rough silk tie (no.9) and think it is , by far, my most versatile casual tie. Goes with my navy, dark blue, brown, gold, and grey odd jackets. Interesting texture, like a grenadine, but snag- resistant. That, and my Hober navy twill are the two most useful ties in my closet.

Can you post pictures of that rough silk?

Awesome. That's on my list for my next order.

As somebody who has thought about purchasing something from Hober, I think this would be a good place to start. You wear it well!

Today's Hober is the purple grenadine grossa (6-fold construction).
