Thanks.

I just ordered that tie along with 11 others.

Nah, I only go through major wardrobe upgrades every 5 years. Therefore, I probably won't buy another tie for 5 years, lol.

No kidding, I was just going to get a few ties, one or two.

That was a little over a year ago, I've thrown out every single non-hober tie I have, and the hober collection is now somewhere in the 20s. (and with ever order I make the wishlist seems to grown rather than shrink)

Yup, I got it. It's rolled up on my desk because I wore it yesterday. I'll snap a few pics of it later today.

It's a very very beautiful tie, one of my (many) favourites. The silk is quite wet and very very soft and quite thin. The color is about right on the website, but the silk is rather lustrous, so it looks lighter or darker depending on how the light hits it, very "alive" in a way. Mine is in 6-fold, and it drapes beautifully. It knots quite small though, probably the smallest of any 6-fold I have, due to the softness and thinness of the fabric, so if you like medium to big knots, make a comment when ordering. It's not dramatically undersized, but on the slightly small side of normal, though I find that this accentuates the whole softness. Makes it more of a delicate beautiful thing than a power-tie.

I don't know if there's much I can say about the pattern as you can clearly see it on the site, the navy pattern is quite shiny so you get these "glints" of very dark blue when the light hits it and all in all it's a beautiful tie with a beautiful pattern, it very much breaks up and softens the whole thing, which goes very well with the whole very soft draping and slightly smaller knot thing. Easily worn with light blue shirts or navy suits because of the light blue/navy in the pattern, and this is an underused combination in my book, so a good way of being somewhat original without gimmick.

I mentioned in a previous post that next on my list "should" be a brown tie, and the one I have in my mind is the brown version of this one, but for this one I think I'll ask for a slightly bigger knot though (I prefer them slightly bigger than medium), not entirely sure though, as the whole character of the tie really "suits" having a more delicate knot.

I'll throw up a pic or two when I get home, but don't get too excited as it'll be smartphone pictures taken in my bathroom with the quality reflecting this fact.

This tie is 67*3.85 and with lined 6-fold construction (so you can judge the knot size), and in terms of colors it's pretty accurate, although they do look a bit flatter in the pic than in real life.

The seven fold raw silk. A positive batten of a tie.

As an early adopter of the raw plum, maybe even the first on this board, I have had a little trouble matching it with anything other than a navy suit/jacket.

I don't own the tie myself, but it looks like a nice burgundy/brown color. I don't see why it wouldn't go quite well with a mid gray suit/light blue shirt. A classic and attractive combination.

It should go well with tan or light brown jackets though admittedly, those jackets are hard too. Brown should work as long as there is sufficient contrast with the purple. I agree on mid gray to charcoal.

I slopped food on one of my latest Hobers. Damn it. It's just a small spot off to the side, thankfully. I dabbed it gently with a lightly-dampened cloth, and then rubbed it gently with the tail of the tie. I've done this successfully to "pull" the water onto the back on several occasions.

This was a Macclesfield, though, and it's left a light spot, due to the fact that it's a print, rather than a weave, I'd imagine. Is there any way to restore my tie to its former glory?

Has anyone ever Scotch-Guarded a tie?
