A Sam (and David) Hober Tie Appreciation Thread - Page 430

post #6436 of 6649

As a side question to my above post... Am I being overly picky about the length?

 

When I tie a four-in-hand at the right length for the wide end, the narrow end still makes it through the keeper by almost 4" but falls short of the end of the tie by 4" as well.

No other person in their right mind would ever notice. Just fix it going forward.

Burnt Orange Oxford Weave
post #6439 of 6649
Two new Hobers came in the mail today: 6-fold brick & white on midnight blue macclesfield print (MCT 279), and light purple Oxford silk (EOXT 15). I can't wait to wear them if we ever get dug out from the coming snowstorm here in D.C. #mytieaddiction

Do you get the regular one or upgrade to the 7 fold?

It's not what I'd think of when I think of light purple (Hober's description I know) but regardless, I like that one a lot.

i think of light purple as closer to lavender, but I like this tie a lot. I have a few lavender ties and am actually looking for a darker purple and this one looks great.

Does anyone have experience with Hober's cashmere/silk grenadines?

I'm curious about how the knot and drape compare to their usual grenadines.

 

Thanks.

 

Cheers,

They're awesome. I don't recall mine being too dissimilar with respect to knot or drape. Texture is fantastic and they have a lovely feel to them.

There is a softness typical of cashmere meaning that the fabric seems smoother. It's very close to the usual 100% silk grossa: the knot looks identical and the drape is may be a little lighter. I noticed that I tight a little less the knot (just a little) with the cashmere, It looks more "natural" with not too much tension on the fabric.

 

the fabric takes its full quality after the tie as been worn once or twice. Hard to describe but is looks more like fall/winter tie then

 

Anyway, these are great ties
