A Sam (and David) Hober Tie Appreciation Thread - Page 245

post #3661 of 4912
Question for you guys who have owned Hober grenadines for a few years with dozens of wears.. have you experienced any stretch in length beyond what was initially specified? If so, how much?
post #3662 of 4912
Fly, I haven't measured them to see the exact stretch, but I know mine have. When I cross the blades to start the knot, they fall at different lengths than they did or my others do. So I know they have stretched some.

Great look arch. I hope that fabric stays long enough for me to combine it with an order of the new wool/cashmere ties.

It is my favorite Hober stripe, but probably has too much red in it to become an SF favorite. :devil:

Don't wait and live in regret.  I'm sure you can find another one or two Hobers that you "need" to combine an order with now...:nodding:

I think that as long as the tie doesn't have red as the dominant color, it works. Plus the red's dark enough.

Thank you. This is where having a wish list comes in handy. You can always find another tie or two to buy, plus having everything you want on your wish list makes it easier to track how much of a fabric is in stock.

:)

 

My comment was made (mostly) with tongue firmly planted in cheek (I clearly don't share the general SF aversion to red ties, whether dark or not).

 

All that said, I think that striped tie is one of David's better ties in a very large collection of awesome ties.

Great look!  Agreed on the assessment about becoming a favorite.  So far, it is my favorite of the Hobers I have.

Above is an image from an earlier post showing my planning for some new rough Thai silk PS -- in textured solid and/or contrasting two-tone colours -- to combine with the new Sam Hober grenadine ties pictured.  

 

Below is an updated image showing the new PS that arrived today.  (Thanks David)

 

Again, I appreciate that my choice of contrasting colour combinations may not be for everyone.  So, apologies in advance if they appear garish to some members.

Below are some images showing the full scope of my plans for both recent and intended future purchases of Sam Hober grenadine ties and mated pocket squares.  

 

The top fabric swatches are the grenadine fabrics and the lower swatches are the rough Thai PS fabrics.  As you can see I going either for: (1) contrasting or (2) tone on tone colour combinations.

Pinkpanther: Thanks for responding to Flyswatter's request for a fabric swatch comparison.  Much appreciated.

Today's Hober is a repeat and is the slate blue grenadine grossa (6-fold construction).
