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.

Nice choices. nod[1].gif

IMO, anything from 3-3/8 to 3-3/4 will stand the test of time. I personally stay between 3-1/2 and 3-3/4, with most at 3-5/8. But it's all personal preference .....

I can live with 3.25, but I can tell the difference. Can't live with 3. Hits my eye all wrong. Oddly enough that's only true with ties on me. Can't say I've ever considered whether another fella's tie is 3.25 or 3--only whether it's ridiculously skinny like current TV or ridiculously wide ala Barney Miller.

3-5/8 is my sweet spot as well.

Also, for those that haven't noticed, David has his new black warp cashmere ties as well as some new and restocked silk ties up on his website. I feel a new tie order in my near future coming on....nod[1].gif

 

Absolutely love this tie - hadn't seen it before.  Great choice!

Today's Hober is a repeat and is the dark chocolate grenadine grossa (6-fold construction). It has been a month since I last had one of David's grenadines around my neck, almost forgot how much I like them. nod[1].gif

Great tie scurvy! Might have to get that one for myself :nodding:

Looks great with charcoal. Will try it with navy as well. Very happy with the purchase. Great recommendations from all of the regular posters on this thread.

And, of course, great service from David.

I just received an email from David that my second order has been shipped. I will post pictures of my small (but growing!) collection of Hobers once the new ones arrive.

Just received a customs duty invoice from DHL for a whopping $88.75 (24% duty). The only other time I got hit with DHL fees, it was only 18 bucks or so. No more DHL shipping on Hobers for me. Not too happy! (With DHL, that is.) mad.gif
post #3942 of 5339

ouch.  I've been hit with 40 or so, but never 80.

^^ Reminds me .... for a non-Hober purchase (from England) I just got hit with customs of $92.08 (DHL). frown.gif

Just think of it as having purchased another tie that you will never see, or wear. biggrin.gif

I called them, and they told me they ALWAYS collect when the value is over $100. Umm, that's news to me, and is not the case in my experience. Almost all my Hober orders have been over $100 but this is only the second time I've received a bill. And a 24% duty seems excessive. I was under the impression that it was more along the lines of sales tax amount (8%-10% or so), if collected at all.
