This is going with a mid grey suit and black captoes. Simple, but I want the tie to be the star of the show.

Houndstooth for sure. Think of the pictures you'll look at 15 years from now.

That's something to consider, I just have had my eye on that rough silk for a long time. I'm not having a super formal wedding (it's hindu), but you're right, the houndstooth will look better in pictures than a bright blue rough silk.

That being said, I'm getting both, because that Ocean Blue Rough Silk looks awesome and I just want it. Maybe I'll wear it to someone else's spring time wedding.

Ah yes, the good ol' "iffy fiance" excuse to buy an extra tie.
Don't worry buddy, we support you.

But as others have said, the houndstooth is more formal and will look better in pictures looking back, and if it's a color that looks good on you, it's great to have two distinctly different variants in the same general color-scheme.

I like the English Pattern Silk Tie #6 but its probably a bit too advanced for my wardrobe yet!

I will probably flip a coin between the (1) and (3) chocolate ties.  I am attracted to the warmer version.

Well... that's fair enough, but I think you imagine the EPT6 to be more advanced than it is. The thing is that a tie like that will at a distance blend together and just look like solid metalic-looking mid-brown. So it doesn't end up looking "cluttery", but when you get close you see the details on it and it keeps it interesting, which makes it perfect for use in very very simple combinations that might otherwise become a touch boring. So from afar you get that simplistic elegance, but close up the tie has enough going on that I don't feel the need to add much in terms of patterns in shirts or suits. When I wear mine, it's with a solid white shirt and either a solid or subtly striped suit in grey or blue.

Of course, if you love patterned shirts and suits and rarely wear solids (or very subtle patterns) then it becomes a lot more work to successfully wear this type of tie without getting a pattern-clash, in which case it might indeed be too advanced as you say. It's also more formal than the grenadines. With a suit I feel this makes little difference, but it's more difficult to pull off with odd jackets and trousers than a grenadine would be.

Anyone placed an order in the last few days and can comment on the email delay? I made an order over 48 hours ago and am still waiting on the "Thank-you for your order and notes; we're all set" email, which usually comes almost immediately from David. I don't want to hassle him during this busy period as they move into their new workshop (congrats on that to Hober and Co., by the way), but would like to know my order was received successfully and is being worked on. shog[1].gif

I had the same issue. I sent another email today and got a quick response from David apologising for the delay and saying that due to the move there is a little backlog of emails and orders to respond to. I'd say give them a couple more days. If it was any other small online business than Sam Hober a 2-3 day delay would be par for the course.

Agreed. David spoils us with his usual lightning quick email replies--to the point that a "delay" of just a day or two seems so very abnormal. wink.gif But in fact, he saw my post in this thread and contacted me; thank-you, David!

Glad to hear things seem to be going well with the construction. smile.gif

Today's Hober is the Macclesfield #100 (6-fold construction).

Nice PP! Haven't seen that one in a while. Worn Hobers all week, but too busy to post. Here's a quick repeat of one of the new wools. Love brown ties.

That's a nice tie - and combo. You paired stripes with stripes, but did it in a proper way.

Nice tie.

You make a good case for getting the Macclesfields in 6 fold.

Does Sam Hober do knit ties as well? I didn't see the option on the website of maybe I am misreading the information.

No knits, but David has hinted at possibly doing them in the future. I hope they do! Would like to see some striped shantungs, too.

Shantung would great. I'd like to order some in my preferred length.
