A Sam (and David) Hober Tie Appreciation Thread - Page 277

"Rational"... yeah, that describes my Hober purchasing habits perfectly. uhoh.gifcrazy.gif

Today's Hober is the dark navy w/dark red and off-white wool stripe (3-fold construction). Happy Monday everyone!

post #4143 of 5325

Overloaded on Sam's grenadines (never a bad thing!) so going to pop my Macclesfield cherry.  I prefer navy ties that are versatile.

 

What do you guys think of:

 

#80

http://www.samhober.com/macclesfield-print-silk-ties/macclesfield-silk-tie-80.html

 

#167 (leaning towards this one)

http://www.samhober.com/macclesfield-print-silk-ties/macclesfield-printed-silk-tie-167.html

 

Also,


Does anyone own the Oxford in Powder Blue?  If so, would you say it pairs well with a darker navy suit (midnight)?

 

Thank you in advance

Both Macclesfields are great. I have the #167 so I am partial to it. smile.gif

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

I don't have the oxford weave in powder blue but think the pairing you suggest would look good.

Lets just say that #167 wouldn't have been an option if I had fulfilled my plan to include it in my last order. But I opted for a likewise tie from Cappelli instead for versatility's sake. I like 'em both.

I should say that if #167 is available at the end of february, I will snatch it before your eyes biggrin.gif

Regarding the two choices, if we're talking about the tie itself, I'd go with 167 because I just found it more aestheticaly pleasing with on color prints rather than two. That being said, a tie is usually not worn all on it's own (unless it's a special occasion), so the question is what you're going to wear it with. If we say the suit is going to be navy, I think the 167 would look better with a white shirt or a pink shirt etc, but if you're going to be wearing blue shirts that come close to the color of the prints, then I think having a tie that picks that color up is going to look great. Personally my blue shirts are all much paler, but if you like french-blue or azure-blue or whatever we call that tone, then 80 might be good. If not, I'd go with 167.

As for powder blue oxford, no I don't but I've been considering it for some time and will probably get it in time. If I get a powder blue one, it'll definitely be the oxford. And if it looks good or not depends on what effect you're going for.

Powder blue in my view tends to create a very fresh look (fresh as in menthol and icy water in the face, not as in new and trendy). Paired with white shirt and navy suit it's one of the most predictable combinations you can think of, but if the cut of everything is excellent, then it is very good for creating that minimalist perfection type thing. Sort of like showing off by purposely avoiding interesting patterns and other distractions, instead doing what everyone else has done, except doing it better. Elaborate and extravagant can be fun, but simple perfection is a powerful message.

167 is simple and beautiful. I love it. I've contemplated buying it myself. Only 1 left... someone better act fast. laugh.gif
post #4149 of 5325
^ Indeed, when I see there is only one left of something I like, I buy it. Shoot first, ask questions later. Better safe than sorry, etc.

Thanks for the note, altjought it's not in line with my preferred measurements (you are one tall dude!). I'm sure it's going to sell in no time.

Today's Hober is a repeat and is the English pattern #19 (3-fold construction).

^ Murlsquirl - very nice nod[1].gif .

For me this is an example of why pics of David's ties in the wild are so useful. I like this tie much more in the pic than I did from the website.

Agreed.  Which tie is it?
