Also, what's your thought process / rationale for choosing grenadine grossa, fina, or prometeo? Is it purely an aesthetic issue or do other factors (e.g. diversification, formality, suit/jacket texture, etc.) factor in? Thanks.

My top 5 (in no particular order):
- burnt orange diamond weave
- Macclesfield #102
- charcoal grey/silver grenadine grossa
- English pattern #20 (which is like #6 but in navy and powder blue)
- powder blue linen

That was difficult and I feel bad about all the others I didn't mention.

Wrt the weave question, I have a number of both the grossa and fina weave ties and like both equally. I have both just to mix it up a little. I don't have any of the other two weaves only because I basically have all the colors covered between the grossa/fina collection...shog[1].gif

My top 5:

 

Midnight Blue Fina

Dark Red & White on Midnight Blue Fina (probably my favorite Hober)

Yellow Gold Oxford Silk

MacClesfield Print Silk #165

Burnt Orange Thai Rough Silk 

 

It was tough leaving the White on Midnight Blue Fina Pin Dot off this list, though...

Not sure about top 5, but I really like these:

oxford weave burgundy #6
oxford weave navy #3
Italian Midnight Blue Faille #2 (sold out)
olive green grenadine fina #18
Macclesfield Madder Printed Silk Tie #6 (sold out)
.

Midnight grossa with white pindots in action. I think this look works better with a light grey suit than something in a darker grey.

Yup. That formula is excellent!

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

That is a great combo, no doubt. If I were playing along with the top 5 Hober game, the midnight grossa with white pindots would definitely be on my list. Pictures truly do not do this tie justice. I tried taking a pic to post here last time I wore mine, but couldn't get a decent one.

Today's Hober is one of David's new wool pattern ties and is the midnight blue w/powder blue pattern (6-fold construction).

post #3939 of 4880
Awesome! I have always gone for standard construction on wool ties for fear that 6-fold would make the tie to thick for my preferred knot. It appears my concerns are not warranted.

I was the same way but decided to check it out on this one and I like the results.  :nodding:  Great feel to this tie as well, not as soft as the cashmere but still really, really nice.
