A Sam (and David) Hober Tie Appreciation Thread - Page 207

post #3091 of 5182
You're right achibald not the same tie but my point stands. I also agree that if they didn't have the extra stripes they'd probably look better

^ ^I think the stripes on the new ties and the original ties are great, thin or otherwise, multiple or single. I think the ties that tdude and Kroaker are wearing are tremendous.

If you don't like them or prefer solids that's cool, David has a large selection from which to choose in that genre.

Ding, ding, ding we have a winner!

Probably for the best that I don't love these. As much as I know there is no such thing as too many Hobers, taste can be a stronger obstacle to buying new ties than willpower... smile.gif

I feel the same way about the new stripes, shame because he has all the right colors available, just a matter of matching them up better

How do you manage to tie all your ties like this?

That certainly is a good looking knot, and I'm sure pinkpanther will chime in himself, but from my experience, Hober ties basically tie themselves. I tie a standard four-in-hand and get a knot and dimple that looks like PP's pretty much every time without much effort or fuss. David does an excellent job proportioning the tie right in knot area, and the result is the perfect sized knot. The top quality materials he uses--both externally and for the interlining--ensure a nice dimple. Of course, if for some reason you don't like the result of your Hober knot tying efforts, you can always discuss with David changing the proportions of the tie in the knot area and/or construction methods. smile.gif

There are a number of gentlemen on this forum that tie consistently great knots. The keys are a little practice and good ties (believe or not I recommend Hobers).

I use a 4IH exclusively. Hard to describe a technique but I guess the best way to describe it is that when I bring the front blade through I tighten it about 2/3s the way or so then form the dimple and then tighten the rest of the way.

^^ Big +1.  I own ties from many other sources, and my hobers simply make the best knot.  I sometimes drool over the cappelli selection just because of its size, and then I thank the gods David doesn't have all of them or my wife would leave me.

Ah that actually makes sense to me.

 

I actually have two hobers already and two more on order. My knots look good but not THAT good.
