In other news, I have an order for two more grenadines which should be shipping very soon. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif Finally got around to ordering the gray piccola #13 (your pics a few weeks ago convinced me to pull the trigger, Syeknom), as well as another navy fina in standard construction to replace my 7-fold that I never actually got around to wearing and decided to sell.

Was out of the office on Thurs/Fri so no ties, Hober or otherwise. Back in the office this week so more pics will be coming. Excellent choices to add to your collection Flyswatter. nod[1].gif

Need to order some new hobers myself, it's been too long.

Yes you do need to order more Hobers and...so do I. happy.gif

Yes you do need the fina. I have the navy in both grossa and fina and am glad I do. nod[1].gif

Here is a pic of the dark chocolate grossa that I posted a few months back. I imagine lighting is causing most of the difference.

Hi gents, quick question: how shiny are the oxford ties? I'm thinking about picking up one in burnt orange, but I'm not a fan of shiny ties in general - would a grossa be more fitted to my purpose?

^ Re. oxfords generally not as shiny as some of the photographs suggest.  Grenadine are lovely, matt but with a deep lustre.  Oxford are nice, with a not unattractive sheen.  Certainly not shiny like satin.

 

If you don't like any sheen, and don't yet have sufficient grenadine, grenadine may be the better option.

 

I wouldn't be without oxfords, though - nice contrast with a 'dry' cloth like nailhead.

I actually prefer the solid reppes and twills over the oxfords, but they are still a great piece to have

I was staying away from gold ties but I think you just sold me this one...

Also -- is it wrong that my collection is becoming skewed toward Hober dots and pin dots? Feel a bit like Morely Safer.

Thanks for the comparison pic. Even though they look quite different in our photos, I think the dark chocolate fina and grossa are a very similar color, if not identical.

Not at all! Dots and pindots are my favorite patterns for ties, and they're almost as versatile as solids. nod[1].gif

Mine are not very shiny.

+1 - IRL there is little, if any, shine

The grossa versus oxford (versus fina versus diamond weave versus....) is a question of personal taste. I like them all. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Into oranges at that moment I guess. (And my burnt orange oxford has shipped!) #183.
