The plum rough Thai silk in its first action. Everything is a bit light in this photo and not true to color. The tie is a bit shiny, so I decided to wear it on our first fall day here in DC. Was around 60 this morning when I left for work, so I put on a navy cashmere jacket. The tie works well with it, but I didn't like how it paired with smoother worsted fabrics.
Yeah the tie does the knot itself is the best way to describe it what a great tie company Sam Hober is.

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.
Burgundy piccola. Crappy pic but this thread is lively today, and I figured I'd get in on the action with the other burgundy shots posted. I like LeviMay's grossa. Could just be the pic, but it looks a bit darker and slightly more purplish than the piccola. Looks good, especially with a gray suit as someone else mentioned.
