Mine's actually the silk reppe.
Could somebody tell me if Sam Hober's grenadine ties are tapered, or completely straight? In other words, that would be the gradual curve from narrower at top to wider towards the bottom. I don't own any vintage ties (pre-1980s vintage, that is), but I've heard that old school ties were generally not straight-sided but curved. 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.
