And yep.
post #4007 of 4911
Hey hober experts, looking for some advice and navigational help with picking ties. I'm looking to. Getting wedding ties for myself and 4 groomsmen. Summer winery wedding. I'll be wearing royal blue suit and ice blue shirt and groomsmen in mid/light grey.
I'm thinking either navy grossa or b/w glen check for myself.
All the ties in the actual wedding section of hovers site look pretty awful IMHO but I'm sure I've seen some glen checks and others traditional wedding patterns referred to on sf posts but can't find them on the hober website.
Anyone able to help with some directions to where they are (if they exist) and suggestions on which ties to with?

Glen check is definitely a traditional wedding tie, but it doesn't work too well against a blue shirt. I'd change either your shirt to white or think of a different tie.

Are your groomsmen getting Hobers as well?

Agree with clag, change your shirt to white and wear this one http://www.samhober.com/plaid-silk-ties/prince-of-wales-14b.html

An excellent option. And if your groomsmen are getting Hobers as well, get them grenadines of various weaves and grays. They'll all have outstanding ties with subtle differences, and together they will also be different from your PoW check, emphasizing your tie.

The problem is I have already ordered the suit and shirt. Getting them from PJohnson and went with their suggestion of ice shirt, royal suit, navy shoes, navy grenadine tie but now i'm thinking blue on blue on blue on blue is a little uninspired.

 

I'm planning on getting ties for the groomsmen from Hober as well if i can figure out what to get them in time.

Actually this is exactly what I was originally thinking except

 

a- i was worried about the blue shirt dilemma

and

b- that would mean I wouldn't have a grenadine of my own and i'll be jealous :embar: 

 

btw- any idea where i can find a pic of the Hober PoW in action?

You could always get a white shirt. You'll get plenty of use out of the blue later.

Alternatively, if you go blue on blue on blue (with a navy grenadine) and have your groomsmen go gray on gray (with white shirts and gray ties a shade distinctive from the suit), you'd have a pretty nifty thing going. Just make sure they have different gray grenadines so they don't look matchy.

when you say ice blue, do you mean light blue? I still think a navy grenadine would work well. I actually did the royal blue pindot on midnight blue grenadine and it was awesome with my mid-gray suit (you could probably do this one for your groomsmen). I think it might be a touch too blue for your suit/shirt combo but the navy or midnight would probably look good.

this

does  not seem to match

this

 http://www.samhober.com/plaid-silk-ties/prince-of-wales-14b.html

 

do the designs offered rotate regularly so the above no longer exists? or are they both the same tie and the lighting is just different in the pics?

 

 

I'd like to just switch out and get a white shirt as well but the boss would kill me (I'm already a little worried what she will do when she finds out my getup cost as must as her dress!)

I believe the tie in the pics is slightly different than David's current offering but the differences are small. The light in the pic you reference above makes the tie look somewhat blue which it definitely is not. They are black/white. David's current PoW offering is awesome and I would have it if I didn't already have an earlier PoW offering from him. Btw, I think the advice Claghorn and tdude are offering is quite sound. Congrats on your upcoming wedding!

I'm having a similar issue. I'll be wearing a mid grey suit for the reception and need to pick a tie for myself and my groomsmen.

I personally like bright colors and was thinking this for my groomsmen http://www.jcrew.com/mens_category/tiesandpocketsquares/ties/PRDOVR~04558/04558.jsp?color_name=morning-sky

and then something like this for me http://www.samhober.com/rough-thai-silk-ties/ocean-blue-thai-rough-silk-tie-5.html

But then again, I think maybe I should be more buttoned down since it is a wedding.

Thoughts?

You're right, the current Glen plaid offering--"Prince of Wales #14"--is different from the one in the gallery pictures tdude linked to.  The current version is smaller in scale compared to the previous one.  Both are beautiful, but I prefer a larger scale.  Thankfully, a new large POW is coming soon according to the Hober website. :)
