From The Other Place.

Ah, I see. Safe to say I prefer my Hober :slayer: 

 

Not a terrible colorway though.

So here is today's arrival:

 

 

LtoR: Forest Green Grenadine Fina; Dark Chocolate Wool/Silk; Burgundy Wool/Silk

 

The picture is a little washed out b/c of the heavy fluorescent lighting in my office.  I must say that the wool/silk ties are amazing.  I took a shot on these because the solid challis I wanted was out of stock and boy am I happy with that decision.  The texture is great, they have a very soft hand, and drape exceptionally well.  Perfect for fall/winter and I couldn't recommend them enough to you.  Here's a close up of both:

Looking to order one for a wedding, how long do they take to arrive?

 

 

My last two took about 5-6 working days from ordering, also FYI that picture is a grossa weave and you've linked to a fina so don't be shocked if you order and it arrives not being what you expected.

Aren't the stripes the wrong way round on that tie... :rotflmao:

A nice bonus is that door to door shopping from Thailand to Los Angeles took less than 48 hours.

Believe these are "American" stripes, so, technically, yes. Don't have even the slightest of desires to get it "right" though, so wrong it shall continue to be.

I'm just pulling your chain ;)

It's the charcoal/silver on the bottom. It may be the slate blue prometeo on top. The colors get washed out under my office fluorescents with an iPhone.

The Hober website can give you an idea of production/shipping times. Recently my experience was about 10 days to make up 3 ties and 3 squares plus two days for shipping via DHL.

Thanks! the one you are wearing though is charcoal/silver right? On the website it looks darker, but in your post it looks a bit shinier, which is what i am after.

Since most Hoberites are sartorial by nature and not subject to the whims of fashion fads, I'm curious what width ties you guys are ordering today. I guess for a little additional context, your height and build would be helpful as well. I'm 6'0 and a medium build, and with the last order I placed almost 2 years ago, I went with 3.5". Thanks.
post #6583 of 6644
I prefer 3.75, but 3.5 would be fine. I genuinely feel uncomfortable going anywhere below that.
post #6584 of 6644
I'm 5'4" 140lbs and usually order 3".

3 1/8" (aka 8cm) is my absolute max, never wider than that.
post #6585 of 6644
I'm 5ft7 and typically wear a 39-40S jacket. My preference for awhile has been 3.5 inches. I used to get the default width of 3.75 and still happily wear those ties, but I prefer something a bit slimmer. Personally, I think 3.5 is as slim as I'd like a tie to be on me.
