Wow. The burgundy looks very bright and looks like a red/ dark red. Is it just the pic?

More Hobers and more pics are two very good things! Nice selections. nod[1].gif

Today's Hober is the Macclesfield print #167 (6-fold construction).  Posted a pic of this a number of months back when I wore it with a dark suit, this is with a lighter suit and a better quality pic.

The color in the picture is pretty true to life (maybe a tiny bit brighter than IRL). I suppose "dark red" might be more accurate but I've seen burgundy ties that are only a tiny bit darker.

I just order the Oxford wave burgundy, which is much deeper in color compared to you, based on the photo on David's website. I think the deeper tone will make the tie more versatile. Finger cross the website photo is accurate.

Great choice (I have the swatch and it does have a lovely deep color). Just ordered it as well this week. Swatches are very useful things to have and pretty cheap to get; definitely recommended.

True. I ordered 30 piece of swatches this time. My next order will likely include some dark blue or navy blue and gray or silver gray depending on the IRL color. I am excited to try the Thai raw silk too. Shame that the color choice of cotton and linen is limited.

This is a beautiful tie. At first glance, it looked like a variation on a dot tie with scalloped edges and a hollow center for dots. At closer, inspection, it's a true neat with a rather eye-catching blue in the center of the pattern. Added to my list for its CDB simplicity.

I only have one linen, the navy, and I love it (shocking isn't it). I emailed David about linen some time back, and while he wasn't expecting any new linen anytime soon then, he did at least somewhat leave the door open for more linen down the road.

I have the midnight blue and powder blue and would LOVE to add more. I hope David does add more down the road, I like them A LOT!nod[1].gif

Stitches,

 

I agree, Half Windsor does very well here.  With respect to Hober grenadines, they don't blow up when tied in a half-Windsor and not in a four-in-hand?  I can tie a good half windsor without stretching or deforming them.  I am putting in an order and stuck on length: David advised me that a four-in-hand requires two inches less than a half windsor, etc. etc.

Today's Hober is the powder blue linen (3-fold construction).  As said recently in this thread, I hope David adds to his linen line up in the future.
