One of the new wools. I think I only have one Hober stripe, and I don't have any wool stripes, or didn't, so I am very pleased with these ties.

I wonder why there is a $5 upcharge for British direction stripes. I would figure it's just a matter of orienting the fabric 180 degrees opposite from normal before cutting/folding, no?

Nothing special.  Just a Charles Tyrwhitt shirt.  I've moved from Brooks Brothers to CT for my shirts because I prefer the collars.

I believe there is some wastage from the bolt.

Ahh, that would make sense. Thanks for the info!

Alas, my Sam Hober collecting habit has now progressed to an advanced stage.  The ties and PS items below arrived in the mail today and I confess that I'm already planning my next order, to add to my growing Sam Hober collection.  :)

 

I will add product details of the items below as a separate edit update.  

 

Sorry no in action photos available yet as I'm still awaiting new suits from my Hong Kong Tailor.  Presently, I can't wear my existing suits as I've lost a lot of weight in recent years and they're all too big now.

 

For David: Thanks again for great products and top notch personalised service.

Today's Hober is the magenta grenadine grossa (6-fold construction).

Looking forward to the action pics.  :nodding:

 

Nice to have someone who appreciates some bolder colors on the thread. :D

I'm leaning toward the bottom one. I like the smaller scale dots. What are your thoughts? Hopefully someone can post a real life pic to better show color. Looks like a nice brownish burgundy.

I also prefer the smaller scale dots and was thinking of getting burgundy and navy. But then I was looking through some saved images and came across this, which makes a good case for the larger scale.

post #3750 of 5153
Too funny. I have that same image saved as well. I originally came across it on a Put This On post.
