So irrespective of one's current warddrobe and tie inventory, what are your top 5 Hobers? Asked differently, if you had to buy Hobers at once and could never buy any more, what would they be? I'm sure something along this line has been asked or discussed in the previous 260 pages, but given the passion and enthusiam that most Hoberites have for the product, together with the new offerings and new converts, I assume its an opinion many won't mind offering, even for the "nth" time.
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...
