A Sam (and David) Hober Tie Appreciation Thread - Page 175

post #2611 of 5454

Just throwing it out there. Everyone on SF needs a Tumblr to post all these beautiful pictures. Grenadine or not. SF should link with Tumblr. Hah.

I tried to explain blue is the most versatile and pick and pick, poplin, chambray and linen/cotton blends are not the same, but she said, "You know, if you dress the same every day, it's not REALLY well dressed."

Your girlfriend makes some great points! Might be a keeper. smile.gif

Oh she is. She's older than me by 5 years but the fact she's more mature than anyone my age (26) gives her the upper-hand. She does dress like a teenager though. I keep telling her to go to Luxeswap and pick up some awesome ladies stuff. Or that I'd pay for it. But nooooo. She likes her Sperrys.

PP: Today's Hober is the royal blue grenadine fina (standard 4-fold construction). Won't be SF-approved but it brightens up an otherwise dreary day here in the ATL.

Definitely works with that ensemble. Nicely done.

Just slightly off topic, but still quite relevant.

A few years back I had a tie rack custom made, much like the one pictured in the link. It houses 168 ties and goes 2 deep, as needed. In the master closet, it literally goes from floor to ceiling. I have found, for me, it is the best way to pick out a tie each morning, in terms of knowing what I have, and actually remembering.

Before rolling a tie for storage, I allow it to hang for at least 24 hours after a wear.

You should take a picture of that.

Attaboy! And when you reach the end, buy more, and then fit them in while restarting. That's my plan.

Perhaps I'll get around to it, but, for now, if you go to the link and scroll down to the third picture (the one with the washer/dryer), mine is strikingly similar, in terms of color and the fact mine goes 6 across.

PP: Very nice.

So here's how to use this tool for fixing thread pools on grenadines: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000YZAMV8/ref=s9_simh_gw_p201_d0_i1?pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=center-2&pf_rd_r=1JYG3WWNQK62AFAPTJY6&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=1389517282&pf_rd_i=507846

What you do is simple: take the needle and insert it into the tie as close to the pulled thread as you can place it. Then push the needle through the tie. The textured end of the needle grabs the thread and pulls it into the tie. Done.

Thanks, very helpful thumbs-up.gif !

It's definitely true that every day you learn something new ...

A wall of ties, bought by probably mostly SF approval.

 

Yeah I want a picture. Badly. Not for validation, to bring the awesomeness of any thread you post it in, to 11.
