A Sam (and David) Hober Tie Appreciation Thread - Page 329

IMO, there is little to chose between the two as far as texture goes.  More importantly, and I think you can see it from the photo above, is that the colors often vary slightly among the different weaves.  

 

It would be interesting to know if some of you guys have a preference for either the fina or picolla.  Same for grossa vs prometeo.

Anyone with a tip on removing delicious blue cheese dressing from the top of a navy grenadine grossa?

I'm not sure which stage of grief I'm in
presently, though I think "anger" is right around the corner.

Try baking soda first

Always try baking soda

Well played, @kayjaybee. Always like seeing what seems to be the SF Hober Club Tie well used. One of my favorite ties even though I don't seem to use it as much as I like it.

Today's Hober is a repeat and is the rose pink oxford weave (3-fold construction).

I like the shirt.  Are those charcoal stripes or navy?

This is extremely helpful. Thanks!

I much prefer the piccola to the fina - just a more interesting weave to my eye. I'm not really a fan of the larger grenadines, but I would go with the grossa as I think the prometeo is just too much.

That's interesting. Have you actually seen the four weaves made up as ties, in person? Because the difference in texture between fina vs. piccola and grossa vs. prometeo is so minimal that it's almost imperceptible. You won't be able to tell fina from piccola when it's around your neck.

I agree with what jeffd said. The more important difference is color:
