That old school feature is what I'm contemplating, if possible, in midnight blue and maybe a somewhat narrower width, like 3 or 3 1/4 inches. Thanks, I'd appreciate the feedback.


Why not email David Hober yourself?

He's a true gentleman and all round nice guy... I'm sure he'll be more than happy to answer your many queries.

Thanks David, I'm interested in the forest green grenadine for a tie and some macclesfield pocket squares. I'm still undecided on which squares because they are all beautiful.

Verniza,
Roughly 3 months for new grenadines and English silks, cashmeres and linens to be rewoven.
Which fabrics were you thinking of?

Jay,
Good questions - I am sorry if there was any confusion on our website but we do not have any ties for sale.
We start with what you want in terms of fabric, length, width and shape - construction etc...
From what you say you want a classic American shape that is narrow at the widest. Straight sided ties are actually somewhat rare - knit ties are often straight sided is that what you are thinking of?
3.75 inches has for a long time been the classic American width. And while it is certainly true that fashion is leaning towards 3.5 inches or for thin gentlemen even narrower ties should reflect a man's body size not fashion which can and usually does change.


Thank you for the response Mr. Hober. I was thinking about the idea of having a dark midnight blue tie made similar to this styles in the pictures below:

Yes, they seem to be on the narrow side to be conservative business wear today, but they look very stylishly minimalist. From what I know, they're (or the second one at least) supposed to be grenadine ties, not knit. I'm guessing around 3 inches in the widest width towards the bottom. I am a thin person actually, 6' 3/4" feet and 160 lbs, but I do presently wear tie widths that range from 3 1/2 inches to 3 7/8.

 

As for a tie, I'm still not ready to make any sort of decision yet, but thank you for your input. I'm still learning more about what defines different types of ties, and I'm increasingly becoming a tie enthusiast.

Correct, genadine's are not knit ties. David will make the tie any width that you specify which is why he asks during the checkout process. I prefer my ties to be medium width 8-9cm (3.25 inches) and work in a very conservative environment.
