The brief was:
  • White on Midnight Blue Pin Dot Grenadine
  • Garza Grossa
  • 4-fold
  • 8cm/3.15in width
  • Untipped, rolled edges
  • Standard lining
  • Tack stitches in white

Awesome! I've been thinking about adding this tie to my next order, and your pics might have sealed the deal. I love pindot ties, and the fact that this one is a grenadine makes it even more appealing.

Still waiting to see the new striped and pindot grenadines before I place an order, though!

That can be fixed with a special needle.

There's going to be more options that aren't yet on the site? No shit?

He promises pictures soon, but nothing yet.  Looking forward to seeing them, too.

Dude, yeah, lol. Have you not been paying attention to the "News" section at the top left of the Hober page?! David has been talking about new patterned grenadine designs (multiple stripes and one pindot) for a couple months. The silks have finally arrived and been photographed. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif David told me he should have them all up on the site in 2 days or so.

I think archibaldleach and tdude have brought up good points.  I probably love purple or purple-based ties too much (I have a number from Hober including a pindot, grenadines, diamond weaves, etc).  I tend to favor pairing them with grey suits and white shirts (often times with stripes) but that is just a personal preference.  I think a pairing with a blue shirt or with a navy suit would work fine as long as there is a decent contrast in shades.

 

I don't have either of the ties you are linking but I do have the dark purple/black grenadine grossa and I really like it.  I haven't had a chance to post a pic of it yet.  I have posted pics with other purple ties in posts #1820, 1929, 2011, 2065, 2196 and 2284 if you want to take a look.  To archibaldleach's point though, I don't think of purple ties as basics (but I do love me some purple!).

Well crap. Nope, I love my Hober tie but I don't follow it all that much.

Flyswatter speaks the truth...and I'm sure he would never play around with our emotions.  smile.gif  I have been waiting very patiently for the photos of the new stuff...

 

In the meantime, my last order included a new oxford weave and, like some of the pics that have been posted have indicated, it feels tremendous.  I will be ordering more of those.
