A Sam (and David) Hober Tie Appreciation Thread - Page 47

^ Yeah, I won't buy those ties in that pseudo satin weave made up into small squares. They're the worst for snagging. Never had a problem with a grenadine snagging.

F. Corbera,

Thank you for your suggestion.

Currently we use a flat finish - no tassles or fringes. In theory it should not be too time consuming to pull out some weft threads (short ones that go across the loom) to make fringes or tie some longer groups of warp threads together to make tassles.

The challenge is time to test - we have a small workshop of about 10 people and we are constantly busy with ties and pocket squares. We currently are putting time into our bow tie prototypes (an on and off project for a number of years) and will finish that project before we return to new scarf styles...

We have one gentleman who has been patiently been waiting for a bow tie in midnight blue faille to wear with a tuxedo for 2 or 3 years now. He is very patient...

Tell you what guys, I have a lot of Hober fabric swatches. I will be happy to mail a swatch or multiple swatches to anyone who wants them. I have almost all of the Macclesfield prints, the grenadine pin dots, the repp solids, the diamond weaves, the repp stripes and maybe some others. I easily have over a 100 swatches.

Give me a pm with your address and the swatch you want and I will mail them out to you next week. There will be no cost to you. I will pay for postage.

Merry Christmas.

My latest order from the Hobers:

261
261
Lined 4-fold Burgundy Grenadine Garza Grossa. The fullness of the tie is incredible!

261
Macclesfield Print pocket square. The weight of the silk and the intensity of the colours is amazing. How David manages to charge what he does for pocket squares is beyond me.

On top of the quality of the goods, David also managed to ship it to me in Canada in 4 days!
