I look at the way people slobber over pindots or plain grenadines from other makers that cost nearly as much (if not more) but provide objectively less quality (e.g. 3 fold grenadine from one maker here costs as much as a 4 fold SH, etc etc) and I feel

who is the threefold grenadine maker here?

Panta Grenandine's are six-fold, lined. In any case though, I think there's room in the world for both. To go along with this, I think this next month will be my first foray into Sam Hober ties, and I'm rather giddy over it. Now all I have to do is decide.

In hindsight it was not the best idea to be seen as dissing other makers - I appreciate them, for they bring variety to the market. What others may lack in construction they make up for in fabric choice.

That said, if you want a superlatively made tie that can be customised ad-infinitum, you owe it to yourself to check out SH.

Hober ties are simply incredible. All sorts of little differences in the quality of the construction that you start to appreciate over time. And great fabric selection, too.

panta is 6 fold to my understanding ... was wondering who sold 3 fold grenadines on here?

Think Derm, It is part style and part coincidence. Don Carlos, \t "Hober ties are simply incredible. All sorts of little differences in the quality of the construction that you start to appreciate over time. And great fabric selection, too." Thank you for your kind words - you write well. I say that you write well because the small things take a long time to do correctly and it is one of our strongest points and it is difficult for me to explain this with words or even photos. Even enthusiasts who love ties can sometimes take a while to feel the the balance and fit and finish of our ties. \tQuote: \t \t \t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\tOriginally Posted by Gene Parmesan \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tNow the only problem is, with so much variety, how do I narrow my choices down? \t\t\t \t\t \t \t "Thats the thing.

And would it be possible to arrange for the ordered ties to be delivered to a Bangkok hotel in case the customer is visiting ? Thanks Vinveritas, Thank you for your question. It takes on average a week for an order to be made. For weddings and special events we can often make an order in one or two days. Sometimes we do deliver to Bangkok hotels via EMS express mail. In that case we are responsible up to the hotel delivery, and with large nice hotels there should be no problem as long as you will be in Bangkok for a few days. Gene Parmasan, "Haha, yeah, I'm worried that these will become the Pringles of neckties for me, so to speak. In fact, having looked at the website and become overwhelmed with choice, I chose a boring navy silk tie. I might deliberate a bit more before placing an order." Thank you for your order. Classic navy ties are always good - smiling. Our selection is going to get a lot larger this year and keep growing for quite a while.

I'm looking to get a tie that would be perfect for an interview. I was looking at some the reppe stripe ties, but can't decide. Does anyone have any suggestions? The more soporific the better.

too much choice is not a good thing. you have a nicely edited selection now - it's hard to pick now as it is

If you're married to stripes, perhaps this:

If not, then maybe one of these:

Yes, I do take poker very seriously, but you are right about me laughing and having fun.

My first Sam Hober tie is being made as we speak (well, as I'm posting on a forum).
