A Sam (and David) Hober Tie Appreciation Thread - Page 262

post #3916 of 5466
Seeing all these wool stripe ties has convinced me to order the swatch set. Of course I had to order a tie to go with it, so I found something on my wish list that was in danger of selling out.

I think my next order will be the new glen plaid and one or more of the new cashmere/black warp.  But I'm trying to hold out for the next installment of cashmere to see if there's anything in there I want.

The glen plaid looks great.  I'll also be ordering some cashmere black warp, I don't have any of those in my collection.

A burgundy with white pindots. Will post pictures at some point but is out of stock for now.

Which Cashmere Black Warps would most closely resemble these ties from Drakes?

Soliciting opinions:

 

* Would a dark red/burgundy grenadine be more (or less) versatile than the same tie with white pin dots?

 

* Assuming pin dots were chosen, your thoughts/preferences regarding the grenadine and non-grenadine versions.  I seem to recall someone mentioning he was selling his "normal" version and was planning on replacing it with the grenadine version.

 

I assume there are no right or wrong answers here, simple a matter of personal preference, but I'm interested in reading the thoughts of others.  Thanks. 

 

BTW, you may assume I currently have none of the above options without pizza stains and/or dots of a unsuitable size for this century.  So, sort of starting from scratch in the non-striped dark red/burgundy department.

Hard to be more versatile than a tastefully colored solid tie.  That same tie with white pin dots is quite versatile (it may not be equally so but it is close IMO).

 

I like non-grenadine versions of pin dots better but that is strictly a personal preference.  I actually have some of both and think they are distinctive enough from one another that they both have a place in a larger tie collection (not so much in a smaller collection).

+1 as to PP's thoughts above.

Agree with PP. Both are versatile, a solid probably more so.

And PP, love the challis . . . .

Great stuff, PP!!  That was one of the first three Hober ties I ordered and they're fantastic!  My order was as follows...

 

Six-fold

 

Six-fold

 

Standard four-fold

 

I was a dumbshit and ordered some more at 3.25" instead of 3.5" so there might be some Hobers on B&S soon.  Have to decide if I want to keep them or not.  It will kill me to let them go...David's ties are perfection.
