Just looked at those too.

 

I'd be ok if it was a wool/cotton or wool/linen mix. But "wool blend" is suspiciously a euphemism for "wool/polyester" etc. I'm not so crazy about the herringbone in this context either though Clags has one like this, I think. Anyway, I agree with stitches.

 

JR, you live in Chicago. Why not go to their store and try on everything, heck take pics too and post here. I was at that store once...some of those guys are probably on SF too so you wouldn't have to do selfies. Be curious how some of these things look.

yeah, i clicked the details, its some kind of polymide stretch fabric or something.

and clags also has 23,817.42 navy SCs so he can get away with the ones that are not quite staples as extras, but for someone looking for that first or second navy staple, those aint it.

I've been there.  About a month ago I picked up 3 suits from there.  I grabbed a charcoal, blue donegal type and a brown check.   I probably will go there to kop some SC's.  I missed the fact that the ones posted were a blend.  I usually am adamant about 100% wool and if it's going to be blended I want cashmere.

Sure, for winter, wool/cashmere. I'm thinking a bit towards spring (wishing, wishing).

 

If you have joined NMWA's founder circle, you would have gotten a sale email +10% further off. I suspect the Formosa suits might be discounted. Ties seem about the same price discount wise (perhaps drakes are slashed further, but they are all 8cm :confused:.

For those who have Hober grenadines (Noodles, Stitches, Claghorn): how have you had them built? Untipped? Unlined, etc.

 

Asked this as well in the Hober thread, but curious about your stuff.

 

I'm thinking later in the year to try and have a midnight and dark brown large weave (which source of the two is best?). Toying with a 6 fold but either (a) unlined and hand rolled edges or (b) very lightly lined and self-tipped.

 

Might as well do it right if one is going to do it.

All of my Sam Hober grenadine ties were 6 folds and the rest I just went standard so I can't answer answer your other questions. Here's a pic if it helps at all. This here is a FINA solid. If you like 4IH, these make one beautiful 4IH knots. The best.

my present preference is 6 fold, lined, untipped with hand rolled edges. but i also have a 3 fold lined regular tip that is awesome. all that jazz is really just bonus for fun.

Hmmm If memory serves me I thought He recomends lined 4 fold for the Grenadine?  I think thats what I went with.

Standard construction is 4-fold lined. As in stitches said, it is an awesome tie. I don't think David recommends 4 or 6-fold, tipped or untipped. He will ask for preferences in look, weight, drape that you may have and make recommendations based on those.

Stitch. No difference in drape btw 3&6 fold? Pink panther posted pics of NOBDs tie which was pretty cool. I didn't realize you could lime and untip! See the Hober thread.

nothing noticeable as far as i am concerned.

yeah, its pretty cool. he cuts off the lining to follow the V shape at the folds so you cant see it protrude, and you get an untipped tie but still lined.
