A Sam (and David) Hober Tie Appreciation Thread - Page 311

3 1/4" can also look good too. I know Drakes makes most of there ties 3 1/4" now.

Four questions:
1. I was going to order two piccola weaves, but someone advised me to get grossas.
I now plan on getting one of each to see the differences. Are there any other inputs? Are they both equally versatile for example?

2. 4 fold or 6 fold construction? 6 fold is supposedly a larger knot and I think Sam somewhere in the thread said that 4 fold is sufficient.
I would prefer 6 fold tbh, but not sure if that's feasible. The 6 fold further up does not seem to be as large as some people made it sound like.

3. I am attending a wedding and after some contemplation, I am going to wear one of the grenadines there as well. I was going to get a wedding tie, but none of the ones on the website caught my eye or the ones that did are so light that I am at a loss as to what to wear. Anyone wants to convince me otherwise?

4. Width would be 3.5 inches, that's regular correct? Dont want to have a too slim but also not a awkwardly wide looking tie. Maybe I should go with 3.6 inches.

Thanks for any input.

Gray and Silver grenadine, as noted above.  Or a POW (without the red stripe).

Technically speaking, it's 8cm (3.15") :sly:

 

And yeah it looks great on most.

I have the same from linkson jacks bespoke service. It's a great tie, especially for weddings, but you can really only wear it with navy suit and white shirt as PP does. It need the high contrast to work.

That's what I settled on for my hobers. 8cm is drake standard, but they also have skinnier 6 and 7 cm. Too fashiony for me, apart perhaps for knits which can be slightly skinnier. 3.75"/9.5cm reminds me if the 80s.

I switched to 3.5 inches from 3.75 inches awhile ago. While I prefer the new width, I happily wear my old ones without a second thought. For reference, I am somewhere between a 39S and 40S. 3.75 is on the higher end of classic widths but it is still within that range and is nowhere close to being some sort of extreme fashion piece.

I don't disagree with that, merely stating a personal preference. I think anything between 2.75 and 3.75 is fine and within the realms of classic style. I don't agree that skinny guys should wear sub 2.5 inch ties. Another important aspect less discussed is the tapering of ties. Aggressively tapered ties appear very old school in a bad way.

That... is a nice looking tie... olive green I think is quite an interesting colour

Powder blue grenadine grossa in action. I need to wear this one more often (looks at closet and realizes that I'd probably say that about too many Hobers).
