Isn't that bitter chocolate?  I have the bitter chocolate fina and that's what I assumed the picture was.

^ Yeah, that's definitely bitter chocolate in that pic, not dark.

Thanks! I will look into the bitter chocolate one too! :D

Huh. Looked like dark on my phone. I stand corrected I guess.

Ordering my first Hober and I'm hoping to get some input on the length. I followed the instructions for measuring on the Hober site and ended up with ~53", which seems awfully short to me. I'm 5' 6", 15" neck, 28-28.5" jacket length. Anyone else in my height range with experience on a good length?

Here is what I would do (and what I did). Take any tie from home. Put it on and use preferable knot (FIH for me). Make sure you are satisfied with the length of the front blade. When you've got that right, just take a look in the mirror and decide what length you'd prefer for the back blade (0,5-1" shorter back blade than front blade for me). Mark it, unknot the tie and measure the length. Et voilà!

I'm 5'7" w a 16.25" neck and I wear 55." Our torso lengths and where we wear our trousers may not be identical, but I would not balk if you followed the instructions on the site. BTW I started w 3.5" wide and after several orders reduced to 3 3/8".

Today's Hober is the dark navy diamond weave (3-fold construction).

Ah... same as mine! :slayer:

I'm 5'4" with a ~14.5" neck and I go 52". I could probably go a little longer if I wanted to, but this gives me a lot of flexibility in terms adjusting to meet different rise measurements. My suit pants, for example, sit quite a bit higher than my odd trousers from Howard Yount.

You already got a lot of good advice on this but I'm 5'4" with a 15" neck and I have 55" length. I can attest to using the method recommended on the site. It's really your best bet. Too many variables at play here. i.e. where you wear your trousers alone can easily take 2 inches on or off. Just measure twice using two different ties and you should get similar measurements. If so then you have your answer.

Would like to order a black bow tie... would anyone be able to tell me the difference between Fermo Fossati and Bianchi silk?
