Good evening MKtitsworth,

As In Stitches mentioned email is best: [URL=http://customerservice@samhober.com][/URL]

And I am very relaxed and happy to answer your questions about how to make a tie that works well for you. Mainly I listen and ask questions trying to have your tie end up with your vision but my practical advice.

Our workshop is typically open 6 days a week (Monday through Saturday) from 8 to 430 (Thai time zone) although I will often be in my office working late at night or early in the morning so that I can answer questions for the American time zone.

I look forward to hearing from you - please ask as many questions as you like.

This fabric is a CLASSIC of silk weaving from a historic standpoint. It's a bit hard to use in Men's attire to the western eye. The more subtle color combinations among them are no less stunning than the very bright ones and I are easier to wear.

I get this fabric as samples for use on furnishings and sometimes pop a sample into my jacket pocket as a square. shog[1].gif

Thanks David123. The order will be made, but if you have a chance to snap a pic in the coming days I'd appreciate it.

If you ever start making slubbed raw silk ties, I'll be bankrupt.

I just wanted to give a public thank you to the Sam Hober company and to David. Their ties are magnificent and of top tier quality, but more importantly their service is second to none. David is an absolute pleasue to work with. He will patiently and without pressure answer any and all questions you have untill you are ready to make your decision. He treats a one timer with the same care as a corporate client who may buy a hundred ties at at a time.


If you are considering making a purchase from them go for it, you will thank me later.


Here are the ties.

 





and thanks to spoo for recommening I give them a shot, this is the later part where I thank you.
Please feel free to post pics of your Hober ties as well, the more the more the merrier.

sorry for the delayed response. they are all 3 and 5/8 inches wide. they are neither very skinny nor very wide imo, works very well for me as im not exactly a skinny minnie.

david however, can make them any width you like.

At the moment I think garza fine would be better, since it's more subtle but still has an interesting texture.

As an owner of a non-Hober all-grey garza fina, I'd definitely want a bit white/silver in there. The grey just doesn't refract enough light unless in sunlight. The Hober grey grenadine has two types of grey (dark/light) in the weave, so if you do pull the trigger, don't for get to post pics (sans flash).

^ Thanks for the picture and opinion. I ordered a garza grossa tie already and I'm quite sure that I made the right decision. Can't wait!
