A Sam (and David) Hober Tie Appreciation Thread - Page 440

post #6586 of 6644
I'm 6 feet tall and, because I was testing out the metric system one day and liked it, get my ties at 8.5 cm wide.

Same jacket size and height. Started buying 3.5 and now have slimmed down to 3 3/8.

I'm 5' 10"; 155 lbs. Started with 3 5/8"; then 3 1/2"; now 3 3/8". I think I've found my sweet spot.

Wore my new Charcoal Gray Oxford tie (EOXT-16) today.  3 and 3/4 inches wide.

I really don't think there is another brand out there that evokes this strong an endorsement from its customers (generalizing from me). It's a combination of the product, the customer service, and the man himself.

A couple random stories:
* David once called just to chat, which was really nice
* My wife and I once simultaneously ordered the same tie and he made me another tie after they had both been delivered (and we had realized our mistake
* My wife had forgotten my birthday was coming up. When she ordered a tie from David, she mentioned this, though didn't ask for it to be rushed. David took the initiative and rushed it anyway. It arrived by my birthday and was a big surprise (since I knew it normally takes well over a week for David to do his work).

+1. I've been dithering on adding to my Hober collection, but have nothing but the highest regard for David and his work. Awesome guy, and awesome product to be sure.

@Claghorn Which tie do you have pictured in your last post?  Looks like an Oxford weave but I can't quite make out the color.  Thanks

Agreed. My problem is I already own a lot of his ties and am wearing ties less and less often these days.

This thread has gotten awfully quiet these days.

True, go out and shop people!

Hoping to get my new Hober Macclesfield printed dot tie this week - will post pictures when it comes in.

That first one (though all would apply) is marvelous.

I just went on a spree this last month and bought the following Hober ties.  The one on the far right (EDT-28) is my favorite.  The lighting in my room doesn't do it justice but believe me it is AWESOME!
