You should be put on probation and required to wear the unofficial SF Hober club tie no less than once a week for the month of November and purchase four new Hobers by the end of the month. I believe that is a just sentence.

darn.  I thought the penalty would be at least 10 new hobers

New Hobers, in any amount, are never a penalty. happy.gif

tdude - you are like a thread member emeritus so you should be safe for now (although in stitches as the thread starter really has the final call...). All that said, get back to wearing HOBERS! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Misery loves company, don't you know?

If I'm going to be broke and destitute, I'm taking you guys with me!



On a somewhat related note, 3 new hobers ordered.

I love that tie, really wonderful. What I love about it (that doesn't appear in photos) is the shininess of the woven white dots. Rather than sitting there as flat white spots, they really pop because of the lustre of the white silk. I have it myself and I really regret not getting it in 6-fold.

Nice to hear your remarks. A lovely tie indeed. I have the burgundy version on the way. nod[1].gif

Good choice, the burgundy is very beautiful as well. In fact the only reason I didn't go for it myself was that I was leaning towards getting a scarf made in the same fabric, then after I decided on something else for the scarf I sort of forgot about it, but it may warrant revisiting. I have a suspicion that the burgundy would look fantastic with a "wooly" type of navy suit, pink shirt and white square. Think the square and the white dots would each make the other pop.

Be sure to put up pics when it arrives.

New Hober Macclesfield #176 and light yellow grenadine fina PS.  Love this tie, I haven't done it justice with my mediocre knot but didn't have time to adjust it.  First impressions on the grenadine PS are that it's quite rigid and more difficult to hold the desired shape than a standard silk.  The bulkiness forces you to cut the size down which limits folding options.  However, there is less sheen and more surface interest so it's a nice alternative.

^ Love that jacket.
