Very nice and simple! What's the tie #? Is it a Macclesfield?

What would you suggest? I tried out a couple and ended up with this one...I wasn't quite sure about it at first but I ended up liking it. You'd favor just a white linen, or?

I just placed an order for a grenadine and now I'm waffling between the 4 fold and 6 fold (both lined). Any experience with both or recommendations on which to go with?

6, duh.

Mr. Hober recommended the 4-fold for grenadines to me, and previous posts indicated that the 6-fold was a bit too heavy for grenadine.

I have both. It's not a silly question as there is extra cost involved and 4 fold is a very fine tie. But personally for me it's worth it to get the extra thickness and drape of the 6 fold.

My biggest concern was the knot becoming too big with a 6 fold. I know David recommends a FIH, but I usually prefer a pratt knot.

Look at mine I posted last week, that's a 6-fold.

Three of the four grenadines I ordered from Hober are lined 6 folds and they look fine with a pratt knot.

Just ordered Dark Purple/Black Grenadine Fina Silk Tie #35, Dark Red Grenadine Silk Tie #2, and English Stripe Silk Tie #33.

Looking forward to seeing them in the flesh in a month or so. Went with standard construction 4-fold for the grenadines and 3-fold for the reppe. I wear a 4IH and don't need a gaudy knot. My 4-fold grenadine in dark navy is perfect, so why mess with a good thing.

Went with 3.5" width and a length appropriate for my short height. Having one tie from Hober has spoiled me. Adding these three will soon make me regret putting on anything else, especially those that require a Prince Albert to take some length away.

I have a feeling I'm drifting into a world of hurt.

Please post photos when you get those. I'd really like to see the first two in particular.

^^ The dark purple/black grenadine fina (fina #35) is perhaps my favorite. Highly recommended!
