A Sam (and David) Hober Tie Appreciation Thread - Page 427

post #6391 of 6649

Hi Gents,

 

I want to get a green Hober.  Any suggestions on good ones/shades of green?  I work in finance so I cannot go too colorful.

 

Thanks

I'm in finance and don't mind some color...devil.gif

Anyway, David offers a number of forest green and olive green if bottle green isn't your thing. Here are forest green grenadine grossa and diamond weave from earlier this year.

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

I have the forest green grenadine from SH and I love it.

It's the first suit I've gotten since moving here. New city, new tailor. Made in Italy through Amsterdam. MTM by Scuderi. Mohair and wool. I'm pretty happy with it.

I love my Olive Gren Fina by Hober. It seems like it will be very versatile.

I have this one:

IMO, it is not too loud, and should work just fine.

I'm sure somewhere in the 427 pages of this thread is the answer to my question...but that's a lot pages to look through.  :)  Does anyone own both the purple and the dark purple/black grenadine grossas and could comment on which they prefer or post IRL pics of them?  I yearn for a purple tie but the shades choices have me flummoxed.

I would personally order some swatches. Nothing beats having the material in your hand

I have both. The purple is true purple, and much brighter and more vivid than you can tell on the Hober website, or in photos for that matter. The dark purple/black is truly awesome, and can be worn comfortably with suits and sport coats. I wear the purple/black far more than the purple. In fact, the true purple is almost too much.

For what it's worth, I have more than 100 Hober ties, and have been ordering them since 2008 or 2009. The true purple gren grossa was one of about 8 or so grenadines (all grossa) I ordered back in 2008/9. When the dark purple/black came out a couple of years later, I ordered it because I was a bit uncomfortable wearing the true purple due to its brightness. The dark purple/black hit the spot right on.

Finally, I have lots of purple and purplish ties, and the dark purple/black Hober is the one I like the most. Very classy.

Hope that helps.

PP's photos are one of the reasons for my continuing addiction to Hober ties, and now pocket squares. His photos are awesome. It is and has been very nice of him to post photos and comments.

Excellent info guys.  Thank you.  I'm thinking the purple/black would be best for my uses.  Now the other real question of what wool or wool blend tie to also purchase.:devil:
