Great photos. Do you remember whether this is the Bitter Chocolate Fina #6, or the Dark Chocolate Fina #5? The Bitter?

I don't think you reserve. You just order.

Deadly7,

The out of stock grenadines are all being rewoven in Italy now and will turn up in April - thank you for your patience. Normally we try to keep all our grenadines on hand so reservations on waiting lists is typically not needed.

Grad Schooler,


We have no knits in the near future - I am sorry. Maybe next year we will have time to start working on them.

Instead we have many new silks for later in the year also bow ties are currently just starting to be made after a long wait...

Hi David

I'm very happy to see the bow ties. Will they be offered in all silks at some point? I might want some spotted ones, or even grenadine.

Also (if a little wishlisting is allowed), I'd be very interested in summery madras (bow) ties.

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.

Received today in David's standard, yet outstanding packaging. Used regular shipping and it took just over 3 weeks from order to delivery. That's incredible. I will try to post images over the weekend.

The fina dark purple/black is really beautiful. I have the grossa swatches and ordered that one on whim. I think I'm going to wind up with a few more fina grenadines based upon this one. Just wow!
post #851 of 5627
apologies if this has been discuss before....if I want a little drape, does it mean unlined is a better construction choice? Does the material comes into play ? Also, what 's pros/cons of tipped/untipped? Thanks

I would love to see some pics of this tie in particular, if you get a chance.

post #853 of 5627
Just email David, he will answer all of your questions. He generally recommends the lined ties for better drape.

Grenadines without tipping that have rolled edges are something interesting and unusual.
You will occasionally see rolled edges on ties in Italy and elsewhere but they roll the edges very quickly which gives a "rustic- wrinkled" look as opposed to the elegant look of our ties. It can easily take us an hour or more for 6 and 7-fold ties to roll the edges.
The very small details of tie construction are somewhat like the fit and feel of a well made car - subtle but you can feel it when you open and close the door.

^ Unlined ties are fantastic, but are very much a style choice and aren't what most are used to. They work better with some fabrics than others, and in my experience should only be used with 6 and 7 fold construction.

Hola Mr. Hober and Styleforum,

This questions is quite dull. I am unsure of what tie to get as a groomsmen. I am trying to choose between English Plaid 9: http://www.samhober.com/plaid-silk-ties/english-plaid-9.html and Prince of Wales http://www.samhober.com/plaid-silk-ties/prince-of-wales-tie.html. Are these traditionally smart alternatives to the formal/wedding ties Mr. Hober has?

Thanks.
