A Sam (and David) Hober Tie Appreciation Thread - Page 341

That's really nice. Good degree of rumpledness (is that a word?) making it more casual and less polished but not getting so rumbled that it threatens to ruin the line of the suit.

Is that a knit tie?

Today's Hober is a repeat and is the chocolate grenadine grossa (6-fold construction).

May I ask what the shoulder type of your blue suit is?
post #5107 of 5695

You may, though I don't have the answer. It's just a standard shoulder (is there such a thing?) with light to moderate padding.

Thanks! The suit fit is perfect!

Hello there Mr. Postman, what's that you say? A package for me from Thailand? Ok, fine.... I'll take it.

Pictures are pretty true to real life, though of course the midnight blue Macclesfield appears much lighter in the bright sunlight than it does when used indoors or in the evening. An interesting thing about the brown tie is it actually turns kind of blue in strong light. I'm guessing the warp used in the weave is midnight blue, so it doesn't normally show, but when it's in very bright light, it'll be either brown or blue-ish depending on the angle you view it from. Brown from most angles, but from a few, it's blue. In the first picture, you can see a hint of this as it's brown with a blue tint on it. Amazing ties all of them. Italian Flower Silk Tie #2, Macclesfield Silk Tie #86 and Black & White Hounds Tooth Silk Tie #32 (EPT)

Just FYI guys: do not place a large order unless you're willing to pay duties. I just got tagged with $77 worth of duties.

How many ties did you order?

 

I've never been hit with duties, but have always kept my orders under $200.  I've heard there is no duty collected on purchases under $200, but cannot cite to anything to support this.

Yeah, I'm not too happy about it.
