This is a follow up to several weeks ago when discussing first 5 ties for CBD.

 

I ordered a bunch of swatches from Hober and finally ready to purchase my first few Hobers.

 

Which one of these navy with dots should I go for?

Número uno. Without a doubt.

I've found that smaller dots are much more versatile, though keep in mind that I wear mostly suits.

 

Cheers,

They are superior in every way.

And, while I'm sure this is entirely a matter of personal preference, I find that I favor patterns where adjacent rows are not vertically aligned:

 

 

 

To my eye it's both a bit less dense and a bit more interesting.   YMMV, needless to say.

Definitely not 3. In addition to the size of the dots, they're very tightly spaced. Between 1 and 2 I think it depends on how you intend to wear it. Like everyone else, I prefer 1 and the alignment that Tweedy illustrated.

Sadly, I am not Tweedy ...   :(

You academics are all the same.

@Cleav i did ask yesterday, but I wanted to provide a picture as well :)

After reading AC's post, I realized that I better check the Hober website and found I had the swatches off by 90deg.   In the "wrong" orientation I was thinking #1 was far better.   However, in the "correct" orientation I think I still prefer #1 but it's not as big as a preference.   Interesting...

 

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 80

I like 2 more now.

Are you sure about that 90 degree thing? In order for the small dots in #1 to align diagonally, the ribs of the fabric would need to run horizontally or vertically. Also, it would be odd for them to cut swatches in a diamond shape. 

 

I tried enlarging the pic you posted of the whole tie, but couldn't really make out the orientation of the ribs clearly. I suggest you might like to clarify this with Hober before proceeding.

 

Definitely prefer having the small-dot pattern aligned diagonally.

Do not agree.

Late to the game, rtc, but I would have voted for the striped tie with that suit.
