I prefer grenadines to be see through, personally. I call them lingerie for the neck.

Just placed an order for a maroon tie with gold pin dots, and a cream pocket square.

 

So far the service has been exceptional. Never before has a company responded to my emails quicker than I could get back to them!

 

 Looking forward with anticipation to there arrival. Will post pics when they come.

Yellow dots on maroon, unlined 7-fold with rolled edges:  
 

 

Ordered the same tie! Except just a standard 3-fold. Thought I'd make a conservative purchase to start with. Looks great btw.

If anyone has any of the Sam Hober wedding ties (or the glen plaid, which isn't categorized in the wedding section of the website) and can take a picture of them, I'd love to see them. I got a couple of swatch sets and really want to do at least my tie and maybe more at SH, but it would help to see what they look like out in the wild.

Any suggestions on the best type of construction for his linen ties?

Our standard construction for a grenadine is for it to be lined with a dyed pure wool interlining for the darker colors. We hand dye our interlinings and hand cut them also.

Grenadines without tipping that have rolled edges are something interesting and unusual.

You will occasionally see rolled edges on ties in Italy and elsewhere but they roll the edges very quickly which gives a "rustic- wrinkled" look as opposed to the elegant look of our ties. It can easily take us an hour or more for 6 and 7-fold ties to roll the edges.

The very small details of tie construction are somewhat like the fit and feel of a well made car - subtle but you can feel it when you open and close the door.
Can't wait to own one (or many) Hobers!

Just ordered my first Sam Hober. Grenadine Dark Navy #10. I also got a few swatch sets and a pocket square. I'm very excited based upon the photos on the forum.

David has been incredibly responsive in answering questions especially in light of the time difference.

Counting down the month until my new tie arrives. Given the customization ability, and my shorter stature, I can't imagine going with RTW again. I can see this turning into a problem.

Probably why I have not taken the plunge yet.

I would love to see this in action! I am trying to decide if I should get this or wait for regular navy to come back in stock smile.gif

I also think about color quite a bit.

At the moment we are working on setting up a silk screen and dyeing workshop and I am planning our collection of colors for next year.

We will start with printing contrast edges for linen pocket squares.

Looking forward to that. I will immediately order a number of those.

So will I.

Careful or it will be a problem. I have a terrible habit of buying ties from David. Working on number 80.

Hi David,

What's the current status of your long term plan to grow madder in Thailand and explore natural madder+indigo madder ties?

I can more or less track this by searching for ancient madder on the web, finding posts in various clothing fora all over.

It's a fascinating experiment. As near as I can tell from reading, lye produces the madder tie feel, but it is an (3-fold?) indigo wash that produces the characteristic dusty appearance. It'd make a good photo-essay, if one had the energy and enthusiasm.
