Or, it is the reflection of the eyes of my beautiful girlfriend behind the iphone. smile.gif

Did you clean the tie off yourself, or take it to Tiecrafters (or somewhere else)? I actually really would like to know the details of how you cleaned it, for future reference.

 

(By future reference I of course mean future car bombs.)

I would think it hard to clean a grenadine yourself because of the weave. Also, whatever you get on it is sure to stain the interfacing, which depending on construction could also be seen through the weave. I am not that nitpicky with cleaning my clothes, I don't do it often honestly, (suits and ties) so I don't feel it worth it to go out of my way too much. There is a dry cleaner up the street from where I live where I can talk directly to the person doing the work, which is good. I just threw the tie over his head strangled him and and said, "You clean this, you hear!??! When you are done cleaning it, Don't press it! If I see any signs of pressing I'll hang you with this muthafucka, got it!?!?!"

No, but it all seriousness, I just pointed out the dribble and I told him not to press it flat. Came back looking like it did when I got it from David.

^ Wow, that is some dry cleaner! I have had such terrible dry cleaning experiences in New York. I only trust Tie Crafters with my ties, but maybe I should have more faith.

 

How do you have your grenadines from Hober constructed?

Yes, I actually picked up a suit from them last night. I remembered telling the guy please don't press the lapels and be careful. It came back with perfectly rolled lapels and everything. It is a hidden gem. A little hole in the wall place that shuttered and has a new owner. Things are looking good. I knew they were worth trying after I brought some of my girlfriend's badly soiled clothes and they took a really long time to finish them. They explained their soaking process and all. Didn't do anything abraisive. I was impressed.

Lined 6-fold.

^ I'm just about to contact David about ordering and had also been thinking lined 6-fold, but so many here say that they find that 4-fold is fine. I've always found 6-fold so much nicer -- glad to see you do as well. David, of course, will have some good thoughts of his own.

4 Fold is fine, but 6 has better drape and ups the luxury a bit. I mean If I wanted a four fold I could just go to J. Press and buy one. David's 6 folds are special.

This. I ordered one of each to start with to evaluate the difference. My future orders will be 6-folds.

Have you ever had a tie narrowed at Tie Crafters? I have a couple ties that are too wide.

I sold a tie to someone who paid me extra to take it to Tie Crafters to have it narrowed. (I am in NY they are in Canada) 

 

I didn't hear any complaints from them.

Any one have any pics of the grenadine garza pin dots in action? Have been thinking about a couple of them for a while - just need a little push to make the order.

Got this today:

It's charcoal grey / silver garza grossa grenadine and my first Hober tie. I have to say I'm more than pleased. Special thanks for the possibility to have it in desired length and width. That's why the four-in-hand knot (and tie length, too) is just perfect, at least in my opinion. Oh, and please don't mind my unbuttoned "at home" collar.

Thank you David! worship.gif

What a stupid tie.
post #718 of 5479
Btw, I somehow dripped something else on the tie. ffffuuuu.giffacepalm.gif What is wrong with me?
post #719 of 5479
Thanks David. I have a couple ralph lauren ties that I would like to have taken apart, cleaned and refolded. And a Dunhill tie that I would like to have narrowed.

I do not know if Dunhill or Ralph Lauren have a tie remaking service but you can try contacting them.
You can email me if you like - although we do not like working on other tie makers ties.

I didn't think so...will have to send to tie crafters.
