A Sam (and David) Hober Tie Appreciation Thread - Page 315

^ Yeah, I do not wear pink or purple ties that much (just suggesting possible colors). They do work well with light blue backgrounds, though.

For what it's worth, I crave a darker grey grenadine when I'm wearing a brown odd/casual jacket and (gasp!) navy trousers, or the inverse. For these instances I think the ground shirt color is unimportant as long as it is lighter than its neighbors.

Given the above, I find black much too formal (unless it is a knit) and browns and blues are inevitably out. This leaves green which I often try to avoid with blue, and burgundy which I often find difficult to pair with certain browns.

A rich grey - essentially a warmer, softer black - would be perfect, and would open up the option of either black or (contrasting) brown shoes/belt. nod[1].gif

Today's Hober is the Macclesfield #9 (6-fold construction).

Swatches arriving yesterday + tie I liked best being down to only one left in stock + PP posting a very similar tie = me ordering the Maclessfield Silk Tie #80 much earlier than I had planned for my next order.

Just in case the new guys didn't know the link.

Huh. One of mine is the most repinned. My theory as to why: a rather voyeuristic angle straight up the dimple. #menswear pinners are so naughty.

Today's Hober is a repeat and is the royal blue grenadine fina (4-fold construction). Happy Momday everyone!

I've spoilered the pic to spare those with sensitive SF-approved only eyes. devil.gif

Hi David, could you please tell me whether there is a quality difference between inkjet printing, silk screening and hand printing. And since when the former is being used. Is it used by both English and Italian producers? And how can it be recognized? I heard you can tell it's inkjet printing when the back of the silk is white. Interested to hear your thoughts. Thanks in advance.

Today's Hober is a repeat and is the red grenadine grossa (4-fold construction).

Once again, I have spoilered the pic to protect the innocent from the reviled true red tie. biggrin.gif

As promised, please find below my first post with pictures of one of my recent Sam Hober PS purchases in action.  In this instance, a rough Thai silk PS in (ahem) "burnt orange".   

 

The picture was taken in the wilds of TST Hong Kong during a recent sartorial sojourn there.  Apologies in advance to the "CBD crowd (in the financial services industry)" at SF for the garish "burnt orange" display of dandyism, within sight of the ICC building in West Kowloon.  :)

I opened the gallery and had to chuckle. That gallery should be renamed to Pink Panther's Wardrobe

Haha, so true. You have to commend PPs loyalty. But hey, as long as you can find what you want among David's fabrics, I see little reason to look elsewhere.

And thanks for spoilering those ties , PP. I of course had to sneak peak only to quickly shield my eyes from the unsoporofic glare.
