^^ very nice Silverfox! The English pattern is/was #20 and anyone who didn't acquire that tie is doomed to live a life of regret. It is an awesome tie. I really like the look of that plaid, it is now on the list! nod[1].gif

Thanks tdude!  The texture is very similar to the diamond weave, I wouldn't call it dry.



tdude - upon further review I would put the texture of the oxford weave between a diamond weave and a Macclesfield. It is dryer than a diamond weave.

I know, right? Plaids can really be quite fantastic. The funny thing is that when I saw it online, I initially thought it was sort of ugly, but then figured out that it might work. Then when the package arrived and I opened it, seeing the tie on it's own laying flat on my desk I literally cringed, but when pairing it with some nice blues and something that picks up the gold, it's absolutely amazing. I've had a lot of luck with David's plaids going for things I'm not sure will work. Of the 4 I have, the gray glen plaid is the only one I was sure about and had a swatch of. The other 3 were wildcards that turned out great, this one of course, the red white and blue that sort of melds to a grey with a hint of beige that I think you also bought, and the third one being a plaid with different shades of blue (I'll throw up some pictures tonight perhaps)

The english pattern #20 is indeed amazing, and I was one of those living a life of regret until it was restocked. I got the peach/burgundy (or whatever it is) houndstooth that's very similar to it in my first order, but when that arrived and I saw how wonderful it was the navy/powder version was already sold out. Luckily I managed to get one when it was restocked, but if I hadn't I'd be wallowing in my sorrow right about now.

Is that a Hober pocket square by chance?

Today's Hober is the red & light brown wool stripe (4-fold construction).

The discussion of weave formality came up a couple months back and davesmith posed the above request. I finally got around to organizing it.

 

Here are two pics showing the navy fina and grossa with the same suit...

Here are two pics of the same ties with the same odd jacket...

Of course, formality will be in the eye of the beholder but I don't see any difference in that aspect between the two looks.  YMMV.

Nicely done! When I first became aware of grenadines, I preferred the grossa weave. My taste slowly shifted to preferring finas, but now I think it's shifting back to grossa. Moral of the story: you can't go wrong with either, and it's best to own grenadines of all types. biggrin.gif
