A Sam (and David) Hober Tie Appreciation Thread - Page 249

^ Well done, sir.

Thank you sir; I dig your latest navy wool tie as well.

So my latest order from Hober was just delivered to my house which is always an awesome day. :slayer:

 

I continue to be amazed with how quick DHL gets the ties from Thailand to my house here in the Atlanta area.

 

I received a note from David on Tuesday morning at about 8:30 am EST that the ties were on their way.  My wife signed for them about 2 hours ago (Thursday at roughly noon EST).

 

I know there is the benefit of time zone travel but 2 day delivery from Thailand to Atlanta for about $40 is fucking awesome.

 

Anyway, enough about DHL.  I'll be posting pics of the new ties as I wear them. :)

You're the chief, AND your wife signs for a new pack of ties instead of being blissfully unaware of the purchase?!?!?! I repeat, so boss.

Today's Hober is a repeat and is the black & white glen plaid (EPLT-9 in 6-fold construction). A couple new Hober's coming next week.

Love the tie. Wore mine earlier in the week.

Looking to make my first purchase. No burgundy or navy grenadine grossa so I am going with forest green and dark chocolate for my first set of decent ties. Can't wait.

Plenty of navy and burgundy options in the other grenadine weaves. If you prefer the large weave, you could go with navy (or midnight blue) and burgundy prometeos. Prometeo is almost indistinguishable from grossa.

Thanks flyswatter, that's good to know. I just want a weave that stands out and I figured Grossa was the better weave since most people seem to talk about either that one or Fina and I don't think I've ever seen anyone prefer Prometeo over it. It's probably all in my head since I know I probably won't be able to tell and neither will most people. I guess I'll order the forest green and dark chocolate for now and pick up the swatch for Prometeo.

Oh, and I noticed you had the same colors in your collection. That kind of makes me feel better about my initial choices to start my wardrobe. Either that or I must be a really boring person who prefers standard biggrin.gif.

No problem! Whatever you choose, they will be nice ties. Forest green and dark chocolate are great colors to have in the collection. nod[1].gif

As for grossa vs. prometeo, Hober is the only source I've ever seen of prometeo grenadines. I think most people who want a large weave grenadine are naturally drawn to grossa since they've probably never even heard of prometeo outside of Hober. David posted some interesting info a week or so ago in this thread regarding the various weaves. Grossa and fina come from one weaver (Fermo Fossati), while prometeo and piccola come from another (Bianchi).

Today's Hober is the mandarin orange grenadine grossa (6-fold construction). Happy Monday everyone!

Lousy picture today. The light grey pick and pick fabric wreaks havoc on the color and focus I guess. Atkinson's poplin. Love the texture of these ties.

I like the light grey color contrast with the tie.  And a nice tie.
